The Cats

These are Karla's cats. Karl and Ricky were adopted from the Saline County Humane Society in August of 2016. The boys are common tabby cats and are presumably brothers. Tabby is not a breed of cat but more of a coat pattern. Karl is an orange tabby and Ricky is a black tabby. It is difficult to see in photos, but Ricky has the characteristic tabby markings, you just have to get the light at the right angle. Ricky is a melanistic tabby cat.

Ivy cat is an old lady, but don't tell her that. Ivy was discovered in the spring of 2004 in a storm drain outside of the church Karla was attending. At the time Karla and Ivy had an equal need for each other, and still do. Ivy is a more typical gray tabby. At 14 years old, she can hold her own with the boys.

Karl and Ricky are strictly indoor cats. Ivy spends about ninety percent of her time indoors. She occasionally gets supervised trips out to the garden

Cats from our past

Daisy is no longer with us, but we have fun memories. Kevin is a cat from our past. He holds a special place in our hearts. Poothead is a cat we had early in our marriage. Her real name was Francesca, but I don't think we ever called her that. Karla had Sam before she had a husband. Kevin hamming it up. My favorite picture of Kevin. Simon was one of our barn cats for years. He's a real sweetie. Rocco was a great barn cat.

Indoor is Better!

Raising your cat to stay indoors can take a bit of discipline, but you should consider the advantages.
