Don and Joy's Cats, past and present

We have had indoor cats for many years, with numbers as high as nine, and currently (Aug, 2002) have 4. Here are some photos of past and present feline members of our family:
Sable
Sable is a Siamese mix found in the shopping center where our pet shop is located. She had suffered some sort of trauma, possibly automobile related. A playful and mellow cat. 1995-
Ashley
Ashley is a Somali, bred at Carquinez cattery in Benicia.  We saw her at a cat show in Sacramento, and just couldn't resist.  We thought we had a cat-safe house, but Ashley has shown us our defects - such things as needing to keep paper towels in cat-proof cabinets, etc. 1993-
Bree
Bree (Bree-Anne) is a  Manx (tail-less) cat that was rescued as a juvenile from a semi-feral existence.  She is soft as a bunny and very loving. 1992-
Mutsy
Mutsy was taken on when a neighbor moved, and we agreed the move would not have been good for her. She spent the first 10 years as an outside cat, and is not sociable with the other cats, but she does like Joy. 1990-
Ziggy
Ziggy was the fat cat of the house. About 18 lbs on a 10-lb frame. He was not inactive, just conserved energy very well. He was diabetic, but all attempts to take weight off him without unduly depriving the others failed. His condition was controlled well medicinally for several years, but ultimately made him one of our shortest-lived cats. 1987-1998
Tugger
Tugger was a Persian - cross male.He was Joy's teddy-bear, and was dominant among our cats. 1986-2002
Zack
Zack was Misha's son, and was our biggest scaredy-cat. Visitors to our home were unlikely to ever see him, except by accident. 1984-2000
Shasta
Shasta was a Turkish Angora-cross female. She was probably the most passive of our cats, but she greatly loved to be rubbed and petted. At 19, she holds the longevity record here so far. 1983-2002
Misha
Misha was a small Maine Coon, obtained from a veterinarian in Maine who had rescued her, she came to us as a "male" kitten in 1982. We didn't check, and one-day noticed that "he" was in heat! Quite a shock. With the Maine Coon britches you really have to pin them down to check. 1982-1998
Merlin
Merlin was a Balinese-cross male.He had the most talkative. Siamese-type voice. 1982-2000
