    Yes, we brought home Orion, a 4 yr old blue point Snowshoe.....my elderly 17 yr old cat has lung cancer.....he's been such sweet cat buddy. I have a soft spot for the Snowshoe cats, lovely personality. I saw Orion licking Sampson's head the other day. Pets make for happy yet heartbreaking times. [​IMG][​IMG]

    So does that mean you brought home one cat? I don't think anyone will mind if you post a pic! He looks really cute, but I'm already maxed out with 2 cats and 2 dogs. And one of the dogs just had surgery Friday for a bladder stone. Yuck!

    What a beatiful kitty!! I'd get another one in a heartbeat but I've got 3 plus 3 dogs and then all my girls to tend to [​IMG]
    I really do love ALL kitties, animals for that matter but I've got a soft spot for Tuxedos and Calicos [​IMG]

    Orion is just beautiful! I can see why you're smitten! So sorry to hear about Sampson, but I'm sure he appreciates having a friend at this time.

    Thank you ALL! I've spent 12 years with Sampson (known him longer than my husband!!!)
    I sympathize with the gentleman in Parker who lost his birds lately. Last week when we found Sampson's cancer, a raccoon or fox pulled 2 blue mottled cochin pullets through the chicken tractor 1.5 x 2 wire overnight. I woke to the second pullet screeching because her hip was chewed. How awful, she had to be euthanized and I've not yet caught the culprit in the live trap. BUT I did cover the chick tractor with tiny holed hailscreen. Another live & learn lesson.

    Orion is handsome. So sorry about Sampson. It is so hard to lose them, even when they grow old. Lost my 19 year old kitty last year and an elderly dog this spring. Sorry about the cochins too. I hate predators!

    I did post on Craigslist and it probably did get flagged as Im sure some non chicken eating PETA member freaked out when they saw it. [​IMG]
