Cool sweet tales, girls. Ta both.
2Buckethead: who do you like the best - Bronwen, Mercy, Smokie, Isis? Usually people with many cats favor few/ single cat especially.

I actually don't have a favorite. I feel closest, however, to Isis Marie. She is so lacking in self-confidence and lives in perpetual fear of being stared
at by her niece, little Bronwen, that she lives on my kitchen hutch. She only comes down when I am on the sofa so that she can safely snuggle
with me. She knows that I will yell at Bronwen if she starts to cause trouble! Do you have a favorite kitty?

Bronwen's really cool name. It's little like Brunhilde, the girl in the legend about Siegfried.

Fave cat is current cat. Old family cats that passed by, they were jolly good as well. There used to live cat with white tummy, legs, arms & lower face but various hues of hazelnut in the back & upper half face. Smb. dubbed him you know what? Scamback aka Shcamback. Where they got it is big puzzle. It was good cat if angry at times. He could loudly mew if you didn't get him out to walk in street. He really liked walking, could go missing few days, then get back thru jumping to balcony. But he wasn't strong cat, couldn't fight dogs, would run away as cats do. & frankly, I didn't get attached to this cat much. The next cat I did. Many sweet cherished memories. He's generic "tuxedo" cat, i.e. black & white. I dubbed him Murzik (said "Moor-zick"). Murzik & Vasya - popular names here to dub tomcat. Murzik differed than Scamback. He's cuter, sweeter, yet mischievous. He didn't run away when seeing dogs - they ran, if not, didn't bite him, just stood there beside cat, ashamed, shy, puzzled, not daring to bark & attack the cat. Each summer, we used to drive in grandpa's motor boat to dacha, I carried Murzik in backpack, to change scenery for cat. He really liked being in nature, walking in forest. I'd see him casing the joint, looking around to get into adventure there. He'd observe the location. Past few days, we were about to leave, I didn't find Murzik, we went back without him. I didn't like it, said to mother can you ask smb. staying in dacha, the neighbors, find him & bring back to town? She rang former classmate who stayed in dacha. The lady said OK. & good news - she did. Swell sport, that cat. Today's cat is the best, by character he's mellow version of Murzik. He doesn't like being outdoors, instead being in safety in the house. But he does look for trouble. I'd like to get girl cat but hate dealing with separating mother & children when she gets knocked up (can't afford to live with many cats). Besides, family usually adopted boy pets (f.ex. there lived dog during "Murzik" era, boy too). It's been like this, loyal tradition, if you will. But really girl would be nice. Do you like when cats sit like bread? Is catloaf your fave cat pose? Don't you think they look adorable, just like this smiley :D?

Oh, what a cool story about the backpacking kitty! I can just close my eyes and visualize the who thing - car trip, dacha, adventures in the woods. I like the "bread"pose. My Mercy does that a lot. My male cat's occasional sleeping position is more striking, where he lies on his back with front paws straight up in the air and legs spread apart. I know, a bit porno-like, but very cute. Bronwen is a Welsh name that means white-breasted.She looked all black at birth, but a couple of days later (and after I named her), I saw a white spot on her chest. It's much easier when a cat is happy indoors. My veterinarian told me, though, that some just seem to be happiest when they are permitted to frolic in nature and explore. Still, I worry. Smoky always comes back, but his son never returned last September. I'm hoping that someone took him in - he loves people and is quite affectionate and fun. I enjoy having my female cats, having only human sons and brothers. BTW, I've been reading a great deal about the Romanov's extended family. Grand Duke Nicholai Mikhailovich had his kitty with him during his captivity with his brothers, nephews, cousins. He carried it with him to his execution, handing it to one of the captors just before he was shot and asked that the man take care of it. Joy, Tsarevichalexei's dog, who accompanied him and the Tsar to visit soldiers in military hospitals (he was the first therapy dog, I'm thinking) was the only other family pet to survive the executions. A White Army officer recognized Joy in the town (having visited the Alexander Palace many times) and took the dog to give to George V. Joy lived on the king's estate for the rest of his life.Gotta love our furry friends! Do you/have you had any dogs?

You're better than I am, Gunga Din. I'm bored by many things-Russian, really. I didn't read that tale before. It's cute.

Well, it's not dog topic but since you ask, the family did have dogs - 3 dogs in different times. My favorite used to be the dog during the "Murzik" era. He's very joyful, mischievous like Murzik & he too was intimidated by the cat. They got along famously, kind of. He's complete white, with tail going cartwheels or what it's called, the round upwards tail? His name was if you translate Fluffster. He used to run around biting people sometimes but with zero malice, he just couldn't get his energy & joy into sth. good. Grandpa disapproved & even planned to shoot him with hunter's gun. But granny made him at the last minute to change mind. Thus he didn't shoot. Then truck ran Fluffster & he died. Maybe he got too enthusiastic & didn't check the road. I wouldn't adopt dog now since I live with cat, can't afford taking care of 2 pets. It's jolly expensive. Cat will do. Besides, I like cats better than dogs. Back to topic, you got funny cat stories to tell? Yours or smb. else's?
