Hi, I have two rescued cats!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I grew up with cats, but I was always more of a dog person. Until, one day at work this tiny little black kitten was outside begging. He was so sad, he ate the saltine crackers that I gave him.

I braved the wrath of a co-worker and brought him in my office. I called the animal shelter to come and get him....but he was so cute....so I ended up taking him to my vet with the thought of finding him a home....well, I am sure you know what happened. Now I have a 15 pound black monster...who opens doors and turns on water faucets. His name is Mephistopheles.


A year later I watched a cat get hit but a truck and trailer and then I hit her (couldn't avoid it). Well, I brought her to the vet and she looked like she was dying.....the funny thing is that once treated for shock the only thing wrong with her was a broken tooth. SHe earned the name Tatsu for the ordeal.

Soooo....we kept her tooo.....

We also have 11 rescued miniature pinschers, 5 sugar gliders and 2 hedgehogs.

Hello and a warm welcome from Spain and my kitty-crew

Its great here, there lots to do and see...........be care, you´ll soon become officially addicted but it sounds like youre pretty busy with your fur-family too
Mephistopheles is such a clever boy, opening the door maybe when you get some time you can post some photos of little Tatsu...........she sounds a real cutie and how amazing that she only had a broken tooth after that accident !!
Oh and you´ll have to tell me more about "sugar gliders" I havent got a clue what they are

Well enjoy the forums !!

Sugar gliders are marsupials that function like the flying squirrels of North America....they have a gliding membrane that stretches from front leg to rear and they glide from tree to tree. They are found in Austrailia. They are about the size of a hamster.

They are very smart...they HATE my cats and they are nocturnal. This is their cage...

They are like squirrels. My vet rescued one and gave it to me.....and I rescued another one.....and they multiplied. I had to find a special vet to neuter sugar glider...hehehe....

Welcome All
To TheCatSite and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for rescuing! Mephistopheles, Tatsu, and everyone else (although we're not quite sure who a sugar glider is when he's at home LOL). I couldn't see the video,unfortunately, probably because I haven't got the latest edition of the player installed -- but the still looks VERY cute, and your description of Mephistopheles is one after my own heart! I have never met a cat I didn't love, or even seen, thought about, or heard of one, but I have to admit to a great weakness for the little black ones. And the BIG black ones, as well. Among "my" rescued, indoor-only, spayed/neutered "9" is the ebony prince, Calo -- and, back a few years, there was the king of my heart, my Sun, King Sunny-A-Cat, also a black silk-satin royal. There has also been a Talker in my heart (black Siamese and full of attitude plus), Katie (a/k/a Squirtle, for reasons I'll let you guess! ) , and Kikkos I and II (both black Siamese/Persian longhaired males, also with attitude plus). And then there was my dear late friend's beloved Siamese, Tatsu, whom I never met but whom I heard many fond tales of.

Look forward to chatting!

Hey, Halfpint!

You did, eh? (Know a chocolate turquoise cat, that is...sounds like a Tonk, maybe?) Your little black one looks SO MUCH like my beloved Sun when he was tiny -- THANKS for rescuing, adopting, and loving your little angels!
