GFunk and The Duke

Garfunkel and Hayduke. Aren't they adorable? Can you handle it? Because honestly, sometimes I can't. I'll start tearing up at their unbelievable cuteness. It's true, it's happened. I literally cry because they are so sweet. They have only been buddies since May. They had met one time before that and it was obvious they both wanted to tear the other to pieces. So when my parents had to catsit them for 5 months, together, I was horrified and a crazy ball of stress. Well! They befriended each other quickly and are now best buddies. And I cannot tell you how freaking happy this makes me. SOOC
They were both strays. I adopted Garfunkel in Flagstaff, AZ while I was living in the dorm in 2000. He's between 12-15 now. Hayduke found me while I was working in Corpus Christi, Texas in 2007. He's probably 5ish. Anyway, they play and snuggle all the time and it's just too cute for words. Please enjoy their awesomeness. Camera Critters Pet Pride

Reminds me of my aunt's cats. She's a cat lover as well.

Awww...they sure are cut! I have 5 cats myself and they are all adopted! Actually, one was given to us and one was a ranch cat whose owner, a little girl, moved and Patches spent two years outfoxing coyotes!!! We brought her home and she hid under our bed for a couple of years...probably just destressing from having to survive in the wild! Now she sleeps curled up with hubby every night! She's very loving.

My cats make me smile everytime I look at them - well, nearly. Not so keen when they are hucking up a hairball!

Cute kitties, they eventually get along.I have 4 all given to me by people who could no longer care for them, 2 came after a death.I luck out and have a sitter when I leave, but pay dearly.When I moved here I was pet free, and told everyone my next one would be ceramic.Didn't work that way, I am weak when they need a home.There are more wild ones in this state than people, and a problem to nature.

Jill, the pictures just get better and better. I think I have you beat on cute kitties tho.

Ginny and Bob were two "feral" cats that lived on the wildside in more ways than one. You know the story I'm sure, two wayward kids, disfunctional family. Well Bob had his wicked way with Ginny and knocked her up. I was a little late with getting them fixed, Well they are now house kitties and have joined the house herd. They are damn cute!

I'd be tearing up too, they are so darned cute. Glad they became the best of pals, they sure do look that way in these great shots.
