Yep. Two rescues, both girls.

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

Ours (I should have said) is a Bengal, she is nearly 6 months old and completely runs our house, of course.

Two British shorthairs. Both live indoors, like my bike so had to purchase one of these to stop the cream one covering herself in grease:

We have two. Brother and sister black and white. We've had them for 6 years and got them from the local cat rescue.
Wouldn't be the same without a cat or two around the house. We've been married for 32 years and have had cats for all bar two of those years.

Did Nightrider 2013 for Parkinson's UK, doing it again this year just for the fun of it and to raise more money.

Rescue, neutered Tom. All black - except little white blaze. Name....Inky

Lazy, fat, sleeps most of the time

Very poor hunter - took him 3 weeks to catch the mouse living under the cooker.

Bullies the dogs - the big lab is scared of him

Wouldn't have him any other way

Years back took in two strays, one white, one black, mother and daughter I reckon... then took in a tabby kitten... and nearly the kitten's mother and the rest of the litter but ended up finding new homes for them instead.

Like I said, that was years ago... wife is absolutely *not* a cat person, but persuaded me to get us a miniature schnauzer 4 years ago who I adore. Much higher maintenance than a cat, mind...

Lost my cat earlier this year, a real character, she featured regularly in my club run write up epilogues for the welcome home I got. I'd like another but pets are very tying for a cyclist who likes the odd weekend away, more so if you live on your own.

I have one cat of my own and then at my girlfriend's house there's a stray that I always let in because it's comical and meows all the time Silly

Excellent responses chaps. Good to see I am not alone in both in cat owning and the fact that she is an indoor cat too.

For the dog owners, well maybe a thread of their own can be started.

Just got back from the vets with mine and she has the all clear after being spayed the other day.

Yup, 3 burmese - two male and one female ranging from 9 to 1 year old. They are indoor cats and really very affectionate - then spend most of the evenings curled up on my lap (a great excuse to be lazy!)

Now just one 16 year old still quite noisy tabby, my black one died at the beginning of last year. Both from the same mum, but different litters. Odd, but since the black one died, the tabby is much more friendly and my boys (4 & 6) play with her a lot more, bu prior to that the black one was the friendly one...
sweet thread, thanks
