I started out with one gelded short-haired male black cat named "Boo." I have a bad habit of adopting cats that those in my neighborhood have abandoned when moving or simply thrown out due to ignorance (Old Wive's Tales concerning pregnancy, for example). So I'm now up to five cats. Including Boo, they are in order of joining the family: "Flash," a large, but gentle "fixed" long-haired male black cat; "Butch," a fixed female short-haired black cat (it took quite a while before I realized Butch was a female); "Cinnamon," a one-year-old handsome unfixed male Siamese mix, and "Jay-Jay," an unfixed short-haired male at the end of his kittenhood, white with black spots. If anyone can provide a cat, all toilet-trained, with a good home, let me know---I'll never let Boo go, and I've grown too fond of Flash and Butch, and I've spent too many $'s on Cinnamon at the animal hospital already, so that leaves only the latest addition, the very playful and gentle Jay-Jay available for adoption.
Btw, we're allowed only 1 (one) cat and no dogs in my apartment complex, so I'm really in trouble if I'm found out!
