It's Caturday!

Our first submission this week comes from reader Guille, who wanted to share pics of her exceptionally cute cats - Homer and Oogie.

Homer

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.

Here he is all gorgeous & dignified

She writes: "He had a lovely nature and allowed our girl to carry him around without any fussing."

And here he is, goofy with his face pressed between the banisters

Kathy also shared some adorable pictures from her daughter's cat-themed birthday party for a Cat Cupcake Tuesdays post, which you can see here.

Our hearts go out to Kathy and her family for the loss of their beloved CC. Indeed, he was a very special cat who will never be forgotten.

Next up, Jana and her beautiful baby, Hunter! How badly do I want to pet this cat??

Jana writes, "Here are a few pics of my beloved Ragdoll cat Hunter. I adopted Hunter from the SPCA in South Carolina and he's been my companion for 10 years now. He's as lazy as they come. Hunter likes to sleep in one particular box. I've tried getting him to sleep in a cat bed or pillow for years, but he won't have it. So, this is where you'll usually find him, especially when I'm working in my office."

"They tried to make me go to box-hab, I said no, no, no.."

And finally, our friend Cat Chat Caren shared a picture of her kitty (and blog co-writer), Cody! Caren wrote a touching post this week about what her animals mean to her titled, "How My Pet's Love Is My Holiday Gift", which you can read here.
