I am a brand new member and I would like to tell you about one of my cats- Matu (ma-too) that is cajun french for tom cat. Matu adopted us nearly 14 years ago. We had 3 females at the time, and he quite shortly took care of all of them and i 60 days we had 12 beautuful kittens flying around the house. Matu is a linx point siamese, about 7 pounds, and has no fear of any dog large or small. Our 3 dogs give him a wide path, even though he has never touched one. 2 years ago our home burned down to the ground and he was inside the locked house. Somehow, someway, he managed to escape. All four feet sustained third degree burns and his fur was singed and burned. With 24 hour a day nursing care he recovered fully. The vet was amazed, especially at his age. He is 15 now, and just as active and beautiful as ever. Heis truly remarkable and the joy of our life.

OMYGAWD! That's quite a story! You must be very proud of your Matu (which I guess would be the cajun version of the french "matou" which means "tom cat"...)

Welcome Pamela, you will soon feel at home here!
