    I am ashamed to say that, although we have always had cats, I don't have many photos of many of them. This being a dog dominated household for the most part. Toru is our most recent cat. She's about 14, and used to be the bitchcat from hell, but is now a dignified old lady, who requires help to get up on the kitchen bench to eat her bikkies. She's rudely healthy, and extraordinarily affectionate.

    It's many years since I was owned by a cat. During winter her favourite spot was in front of the fireplace. Not always too happy being disturbed.

    The office chair wasn't such a bad spot, either.

    And this, this is Genghis. Or Genghis Khan to give him his full nomenclature. He was, without doubt, the most wonderful cat. He was a scrapper, for sure, but he was also one of the most affectionate cats I had ever met. His pedigree was that of feral cat crossed with Siamese, so that says a great deal about who he was. He liked his belly being rubbed, but he was very hard on dogs. We had an English Bull Terrier we had rescued, and he was oft to be found hanging by his claws from her head. He also, when he was a small kitten, used to wait for people or dogs, he didn't care which, to walk by, and would jump on them with his little needle claws. He was very fond of the ladies, and there used to be many a joke that all of the black cats around the area had been sired by him. Because yes, for a long time, he wasn't neutered. (Not my choice, it has to be said). So he went out. A lot. Until one day when he just disappeared, and he didn't come home for about 3 months. We joked that he had gone flatting, but he came back, very sick with the cat flu and requiring a lot of care to get him back to his former glory. From that day forward, when I convinced my husband that it was in Ghengis' best interests to be neutered, he stayed fairly close to home. And then the final indignity, all those years of fighting caught up with him, and he had Feline Aids. If he had not had the cat flu, we were told, he would have survived. But I guess he lived his life on his terms. I was devastated when we had to say goodbye to him, and I can't believe that this is the only photo that we have left of him. But it is.

    Was a favourite spot for my old cat to sit on a sunny day (pity if you wanted to put some rubbish in the bin though).

    The late, lamented Tigger, in his favourite spot...well, anywhere in the sun would do.

    And this, this is Genghis

    That is my stepson's nickname. Given when he was a teenager and an exhibition at the museum of Khan artefacts mentioned that Genghis' motto was "Surrender or be enslaved and die", which pretty much summed up the boy's approach to familial relations then (he's lovely now).

    That's an apt saying for our boy too, Hebe. We surely did surrender to him.

    Our real cats were initially very suspicious of the less mobile cat, but after a bit they came to an accommodation.

    Omigod ... here we go. The first picture of Colin (taken last night by Fiona) is a bit of a Maru tribute. But Colin is prettier than Maru.

    This is Livvi. My partner has instructed me to tell all of you that she is the prettiest, and smartest, of them all.

    Oscar was undeniably the boss - just take a look at the titles of the books up on the shelf.

    Shoot the Damn Dog. Lolz.

    Our gorgeous girl Bella who we got from the SPCA 5 years ago. She chose us with a languid stretch and a come hither look...

    We're not exactly sure, but the best guess is an Abyssinian/Burmese cross. She may be pretty and smart, but she's really racist. She hates all cats except other Burmese types.
