I want to apologize for my rudeness. I posted with my sick kitten before I introduced myself!

Here are my darlings:
The first one is the cat I've had since I was 16. He lives with my parents still because he rules their HUGE house and is soo happy there. He's also able to go outside. (of which I don't let my cats outside but my parents do) in a really nice area with lots of room for him. His name is Porkchop.

This is Misfit. She has been with my almost-husband for a long time. She's 9 years old and feisty. She is also very affectionate, loves to play with "mice" and enjoys sitting on our laps while we do work, OR sit ON my work.

And this one is Edward. I have an awesome story about how he came to us, but I'll put it in another post. We found him about half a block from our current apartment. He was sooo sweet and trusting we just HAD to bring him. The vet tells us he's about 4 and a half months old. We named him after Edward Scissorhands, because he is so kind and trusting.

Edward and Misfit live together in our apartment. They play chase all the time. There hasn't been any cuddling yet between them (Misfit didn't like Edward at first, she taught him how to hiss and growl) but I know in the Philly winter they are going to snuggle.

And so those are my kitties!

About me: Future-Librarian vegetarian who loves to cook and is also a professional pet care-giver. (I get paid to walk dogs and hang out with cats!!!!) I also have a soft spot for collies. It's lovely to meet you

Thanks everyone!

I agree, Porkchop is the best name for him. He's such a fatty and soooo sweet and awesome. He's not the smartest, but he's definitely the softest and cuddliest and nicest. He doesn't like to be picked up on the account that he weighs between 13 and 14 pounds. He doesn't talk very loud but he purrs like a motorcycle.

Misfit does like to be picked up (she's 9 pounds) and held like a little baby over your shoulder. She LOVES to be brushed and she loves to tell me all about her day. Her day usually goes something like this:
Misfit: "Meooow"
Me: "Meow?"
Misfit: "Meoooow!"
Me: "Mrow?"
Misfit: "Mrow!"

and so on. She also likes to sing. She'll copy my pitches when she meows sometimes. It's excellent.

Edward is still a mystery because I don't know him as well yet. He likes to terrorize Misfit (but now she just baits him and chases him around the house). He loves to sit on my lap or anywhere near me and he still "false nurses" but only from me (he has a little schedule when he does this, but it's less frequent now). It's really cute. Some people seem to think that false suckling or nursing is annoying or bad, but I don't. He's just a little kitten, and he detached from his mum too early I guess.

Both of our kitties put their toy mice in their food bowls. Does anyone else have cats who do this?

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

Since I posted, Edward seems to have grown even more! He and Misfit play all of the time, but sometimes she gets sick of him and we have to separate them.

He's 5 months, she's 9 years, so there's a bit of an energy/maturity difference there. That and he isn't neutered yet!

I haven't seen Porkchop in a few months on the account that he lives with my parents. But I'll see him next weekend when we go up there to visit!! He's always sooo happy to see me and sleeps with me every night I go back. I miss him a lot and always wish he could come live with us!!!!!
