1. How many cats do you own ? We have 2 right now.

2. Who named your cats ? I think I named Cocoabean. My husband sort of named Luna for her first name, I came up with the second part of Moonshadow, then he added Lady to the front so she's Coonalley Lady Luna Moonshadow. She's registered so we wanted it to be really long and fancy lol

3. Whats your favorite cat color/pattern ? Tortoiseshell (Cocoabean!) and VERY partial to orange too!

4. Do you have a favorite breed of cat ? Maine Coon (Luna!)

5. Do your cats sleep with you in your bedroom ? Absolutely yes. Luna sleeps on a pile of pillows over my head nearly every night. Cocoa kind of comes and goes.

6. Where do your cats sleep if not with you ? Cocoa will sleep in our guest room.

7. Do they eat any human food ? Cocoa doesn't eat human food for the most part other than small bits of plain fish or chicken. She's uninterested. Luna will eat anything but we are careful about what she gets. No junk. Plain proteins and very small amounts of dairy, like a pea sized piece of cream cheese or a lick of plain yogurt if we're having it. I am sure if she had a chance she would a bowl of pasta if it was put in front of her. And yet, she's picky about her cat food!

8. Do your cats get treats ? Yes, but only simple protein types like Pure Bites.

9. Do you plan on getting more cats ? I do lol. My husband knows because we are still on a waiting list from another Maine Coon breeder that we got on way before we got Luna and I'm loathe to remove us from it because, well, one never knows and our turn doesn't come up for another 10 months or so. No point making a big deal over it until then since we can pass at that time if not ready anyway.

10. Do you have any other pets ? Nope. Two cats are enough for us.

Where my cats are
1. How many cats do you own ? 1 :sigh: I still want to answer 2 immediately without thinking.
2. Who named your cats ? Me. DH just agreed. I first wanted to name the girls Daisy and another flower. DH did not like that at all. So we went with naming them after my favorite comic strip.
3. Whats your favorite cat color/pattern ? Tuxies
4. Do you have a favorite breed of cat ? Any with hair!
5. Do your cats sleep with you in your bedroom ? No. DH is allergic so I snooze with Mooch on the couch a bit before bed.
6. Where do your cats sleep if not with you ? Mooch owns the glider I bought for when my kids were babies. No one else sits there. She spends most of her time there or on the couch at night.
7. Do they eat any human food ? No she’s never liked it.
8. Do your cats get treats ? Yes I use soft treats to give meds twice a day.
9. Do you plan on getting more cats ? Someday. I would love for my kids to have a younger pet or two that wants to play and snuggle; but Mooch is 15 so I don’t think that in her best interest.
10. Do you have any other pets ? No. I had fish for a while.

1-how many cats? We have 2, a 10mth old female, Jemima and a 7mth old, Lucca.
2-who named them? I named Jemima and we both named Lucca. I liked Leo, Luciano, and my husband liked Joey. Somehow we agreed on Lucca.
3-I don’t have a favorite color or pattern but my husband loves the tabby pattern.
4-favorite breed for me it would be a Japanese bobtail.
5-does our cats sleep in our bedroom? Yes, in bed with me. The door is open so they can use the litter box
6-do they get human food? Some. I give them unsalted sardines (a tbsp) over food-organic chicken liver-unsalted tuna-raw egg yolks-a dab of unsalted organic butter (for hairball prevention). These bites of human food is occasional and in very limited amounts.
7-do we give treats? Yes, the nulo tubes of creamy “gravy”, split between them (1/2 tbsp each), egg yolks, chicken liver. Pretty much the human food stuff I mentioned.
8-no plans for more cats and no other pets ❤

1. How many cats do you own ? Two, but "own" is a strong word. :lol:
2. Who named your cats ? I named Tango, and I don't remember if it was my mom or my brother who named Indy.
3. Whats your favorite cat color/pattern ? I don't really have one. All are cute to me. I've had tabbies the most, though.
4. Do you have a favorite breed of cat ? No. I've only had domestic shorthairs.
5. Do your cats sleep with you in your bedroom ? Indy sometimes sleeps on my pillow above my head, and rarely on top of my side or chest. Tango isn't really a fan of sleeping in my room, but sometimes she'll sleep on a plastic tote by my closet for a few hours at night. She hasn't done that in months, though. She does like to come in my room in the early mornings and cuddle with me for two minutes before demanding that I get up and feed her. And sometimes I'll wake up to see Tango sitting on my floor/bed, staring at Indy, who's fast asleep. :rolleyes2:
6. Where do your cats sleep if not with you ? Usually in the living room/kitchen: Indy likes to sleep on the top of the carpeted cat tree or in a cardboard box on a table in front of a window. Tango sleeps on a computer chair, the floor beside the coffee table, or one of the two kitchen chairs I use.
7. Do they eat any human food ? Indy couldn't care less about people food. Tango, on the other hand, has eaten/stolen (and liked) chocolate, onions, french fries, macaroni, peas, corn, almost any meat, tortilla chips, gluten-free waffles, lactose-free yogurt and milk, mystery crumbs in the kitchen sink, Goldfish crackers, and sauerkraut??? She stole and ate the chocolate and onions a few days after she was adopted. :doh: edit: I forgot Tango also likes ice cream and angel food cake.
8. Do your cats get treats ? Yes, but I haven't given them any in a while. They're picky with the treats they do have.
9. Do you plan on getting more cats ? Not at the moment.
10. Do you have any other pets ? Nope.

Moz Moz Sophie tried to steal a steak from my plate. It was sitting on my desk and I was preoccupied. I saw something out of the corner of my eye and there she was sitting on the small shelf next to my plate. She had grabbed a corner of the steak and tried to lift it. When that failed, she just started licking it and was about to take a bite when she saw me looking at her. She stood up on the shelf and started HOLLERING at me. I could tell it was cat for. "Don't just sit there! Cut some up for me right NOW!" Which, of course, I did. :lol:
