About My Room Mates

As you all must know by now I have 4 wonderful cats as members of my household. They include a huge, lovely, orange, Tabby named Morin, a orange and white tuxedo Tabby; Teddy Bear, a black and white tuxedo Manx; Panda, and last but not least my little multi-cald or calico Exotic; Victoria. They each have distinct personalities and each of them have eccentricities.

Morin is a huge male that enjoys ruling the roost; but just when he thinks things are under his control Teddy Bear runs at him and literally falls on him. They don't hurt each other they just seem to be having fun. Morin always retaliates but gently as Teddy is smaller than him. Now roly poly Panda has a way about her that can be both annoying and endearing. She serenades me with a catty, grating, semi-musical yowl every time she is pleased with a situation or herself. Victoria who is a diminutive female sort of lies around observing the others and every once in a while dive bombs Morin when she is in a playful mood. Teddy won't let me go anywhere in the house alone. He must observe everything I do which can be quite disconcerting at times. Whilst he is doing this he too serenades me with his own ceaseless little meow pattern. Often when I am working on my computer one of them; usually Panda or Teddy will sit on my lap and follow whatever I am doing with glimmering eyes and every once a in awhile peer up at me as if to say, "Come on Mom, haven't you done enough now?"

The thing about having these wonderful felines in my home is that they make great company, you can converse with them, you can tell them all your secrets and they never answer you back, tell your secrets, or argue with you. They will sit with you on the couch and watch all your favorite programs with you. They seem to give you their complete attention and they give you hours of joy.

In short dear readers, I simply love living here with my 4 cats in our little cottage in the city!
