I think Juno might be trying to ship Morticia somewhere.  Juno isn't very fond of her little sister.

As if us cat people didn't know already. They like having a den, a hidey-hole to feel safe in.

Buddy likes to build his own hiding place, using our couch cushions and/or the throw pillows.

Eli is already enjoying Caturday. Why? I forgave him for biting my calf earlier this week, and if I am reading Caturday, it means he can warm my foot with his fuzzy body. ( My feet are on the hassock, Eli is platered along my left leg/foot.)..

I haz a happy!

Hey cat folks!  My last childhood pet I'd had since I was 12 crossed that rainbow bridge a few years ago, after nearly 20 years on this Earth.  She was a pure white cat, unknown breed from a stray litter born outside of a video store my aunt worked at at the time.  My daughter is half the age I was then, but I want her to have a similar experience.  So here's my question:  Keeping in mind that I will ONLY consider rescue/shelter animals, what traits should I look for in a cat to have the best chance at a long life?

One of my cats used to hide under a table with a long tablecloth.  He was invisible!  Except for always leaving his whole tail sticking out.

I don't have a pic, but I'm sure you've seen this phenomenon.

hmm..good question. Part of a long life depends on genetics. Part on the environment that the cat lives in. Cats who are indoor only live longer. I would think that any cat that chooses you and your daughter, will bring such richness to your lives, you can't imagine. Whether the cat lives a short or a long life.
