Cat Love

Anyone who knows me can tell you how much I love my cats…with a passion. Here are photos of some of the cats I’ve loved (and lost).

First up, Sam (1982-1999). AKA My Sammy, Sama-rama-lama-ding-dong, Sammy Boy.

This guy had infinite patience, until provoked beyond endurance by the younger crew. Then, swipe, with his paw, and they soon learned their place! Known as “the Wise One”. MySammy2

Sasha (1993-2003). No nickname. Don’t models need just one name? Nuff said.

This petite, slim girl knew she was seriously pretty, and loved it.

She was often to be found cuddled up with Sam. Not surprisingly, known as “the Model Cat”.

Chelsea (1993-2006). AKA Peeney, Peony, Peeney Pie.

This sweet little girl was known for her funny antics. The first night we moved into a new house, my husband was up for a late night snack. She joined him on one of the chairs and dug right in..one of the family. Known as “the Funny Girl”.

Max (2006-Present). AKA Maximillian, Maxwell, Maxwell House.
When Peeney died, I was so sad that my husband said I should look for another kitty right away. Now, I know some of you cat lovers might not be able to “replace” a beloved cat so soon. The way I looked at it was this: I loved that cat so much, it was honouring her memory. And so Max came into our lives.

We swear he’s part Maine Coon because of his gorgeous long hair and fluffy tail. He’s one of the most affectionate cats I’ve ever had. Known as “the Cuddler”.
