Our first submission this week comes from reader Guille, who wanted to share pics of her exceptionally cute cats - Homer and Oogie.
Guille writes: "My white and grey kitty is named Homer (after Homer Simpson) and was actually given to me by a friend because no one would take him. He kept hissing at the person who originally had him. I was supposed to have gotten another cat from the same litter, but he was given away. Here's the interesting part: Homer is actually a girl. The person who gave him to me told me he was a boy, which I found out was wrong, when Homer started going into heat. "He" was already named; I couldn't bear to change his name.
The really cool part (and the reason I think he was meant to be with me) is that Homer's grey patches on his back form a #7! He was a gift to my partner at the time, who's birthdate is 7-7-77! How cool is that? (Ed note: Very cool, indeed!)
Oogie (named after Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas) is a Manx (no tail), and lives up to his name. He is a little devil who's always up to some sort of mischief! I love them both dearly and I couldn't have gotten through the last couple of years without them."
Our next submission comes from Kathy, who shares her beloved cat, CC (Cool Cat). Sadly, CC passed away last August at only one year, one month, and one day old after battling pancreatitis and further complications.
Next up, Jana and her beautiful baby, Hunter! How badly do I want to pet this cat??
