For several months we have had a visitor. Sometimes the feline friend would be here one night and gone for several more. However in the last three months this visitor has really become apart of the family and now lets me cuddle, pet and pick him up. He does not get along so well with the other members of the family but I have a nice bond with him.

I introduce you to Ernie.

It took me a while to get good photos of him, because he would usually visit after dark.

Thankfully on one lucky day, I noticed him and he did not seem scared of my camera.

So… that might mean I have 9 cats and 1 bird now… but I love them all.

People say we adopt cats, but I think it’s the cats that adopt their hoomans. ;)

What a beautiful cat! :) Yea, I’m biased toward this breed, but still! Also, I laughed so hard when I read Liz’s comment, “People say we adopt cats, but I think it’s the cats that adopt their hoomans.” It’s funny because it’s true. You don’t see that with other animals as often. Nope. Just cats. xD

    Cats have their own special way of making their presence in your life, very known and usually on their own terms. xD

KITTY! Ernie is aborable!

He reminds me of the stray cat I took in when I was a kid. He was a tabby cat so I called him Orange. Ah, I miss him.

I’ve never had a cat before, but I remember having stray cats in our school, and we would play with them. One of them looks exactly like him, a bit thinner though.

Aw. ^_^ I miss finding new friends outside. But it seems the older cats have found a their – their dad, who is a stray. He’s scared of people though so I’ve never been able to get close to him.

    Some of them are scared and it can take a loooong time to be able to earn their trust. It took me over a year with one cat, before I could get close to her. Now after three years, she is an inside babe. xD

Ernie is beautiful. I love black cats! I love the taboo of them. You know them bringing bad luck XD I once had a black cat named Gato (spanish for cat) and I loved him like no other. Ah, too bad he passed so many years ago but I’ll always remember him. Ernie is perfect and wonderful :) Love the name too!

He’s very beautiful, and I can say it even considering I’m not a big fan of cats. I like to look at them, because they are elegant, and stuff. But I can’t really picture myself owing a cat! LOL Anyway, I’m really happy you found a new friend…or should I say, he found you? :D

LOL I agree with Liz in that Cats choose who they want their owners to be. I don’t think that I’ve ever had a kitten that I chose myself, they all chose me. :) Ernie is a very handsome boy. I’m glad that you have a new furry friend. <3

What a cutie! I love his eyes, so expressive. Glad he is letting you cuddle a bit. I have had mine almost 3 years and he does not like to cuddle, a real mister independent. Must be a male thing.

Boy, that is one handsome cat. I find it so weird yet so cool how cats just seem so selective about the people they like. I could never own one, due to allergies, but I’ll still admire this beaut from afar.

:) He’s cute. Does he get along with the others?

I don’t know if you remember this, but we have an orange and white cat who came to our house when she was a kitten.. She adopted two families of cats we had and just started nursing from both of the cats.. Took her a long time to even let me touch her and she was still skiddish during that. But recently, she had kittens and now she is living indoors and is one of the sweetest female cats we have had.. She is also very smart and vocal. We ended up naming her Clementine because Billy and I were singing “Oh My Darlin Clementine” and she just rolled on her back in content during the song. Name also matches her colors.. Clearly, it was meant to be.

Im a cat lover myself. My dilemma is when we have a cat visitor, it is usually to steal the food of my other cats so they really dont get along well. My hubby told me to shoo the visitor away since i have to protect my own longtime cats. Do you think thats the right thing to do?

    It is kind of a hard situation. Sometimes you might get cats that are just passing through and might leave your house after a few days, other times they are really starving and desperate for food. I can’t see anything go hungry, so I always feed them. xD
