Toby
American Shorthair
Male

Toby is my boy! His mommy brought her kittens one by one to our garage. "White Face" was a feral kitty that belonged to a group of baby kitties I started feeding at the school beside our home. The mommy kitty had come to our house (we had food for our 1 cat outside). We were able to tame the other 3 of her siblings. Actually there were 2 sets of kittens by the same father (Toby's Grandfather), which Tody looks so much alike except his Tucedo pattern was gray & white & his grandfather's pattern was black & white. Toby's mom took her kittens away from our garage but Toby & his brother, Teddy were playing & had gotten left behind. We brought both kittens inside soon after since the mommy only returned a few times to eat. She soon shunned Toby & it seems to just break his heart. Toby had been her favorite. It only took 2 days for Toby once inside our home to bond with me. The strange thing is as much as my daughter & her dad have tried to be friends with Toby, he is still very timid with them but so loving to me. I recently was in the hospital for 2 weeks, Toby either sat at the window waiting for my return or he would hide. My daughter & her dad tried their best to comfort him, to let him know he was loved by both but he just does not bond with anyone but me. We are & have been caring for & feeding, giving them a home to about 25 cats with the youngest being 1 year & almost 6 months. The last kittens (3) was from a feral mommy that has been in our garage. The good thing is all of these kitties have been fixed except this mommy. We will just have to somehow catch her to have her neutered. All 3 of her now grown kittens are as tame & sweet as an be, but their mommy (Callie) just refuses to let us touch her long enough to win her trust. My Toby seems to be the leader of the cats that stay downstairs in our home. Toby is a big & very muscular kitty, so much like his Grandfather that was feral, yet gentle to all his kittens. Eventually we did not see him coming for food or just roaming around so he either moved on to a different section of town or something happened to him. I am pretty sure he had many, many babies in all the neighborhoods that he roamed. When I was feeding his 8 babies, he often came around & even saw him appearing to be babysitting while the mommy took a break & ventured off for a bit.
Our having one kitty about 6 or 7 years ago to feeding & caring for well over 40 (some only came to eat), 3 recently have been coming back for food. I can not help getting upset when I see these strays that I know were once pets. They never were fixed & evidently not that cute kitten they once took in, so they just stop caring for these pets.

Toby is a kitten we got from the humane society along with his brother Simba. They are a ball of energy and have brought a lot of fun and laughter to this home and our older female kitties have enjoyed them as much as we do.

Cat God

My mom rescued me off the streets and our bond is unbreakable and some say amazing. I get along with every other cat on the planet and I'm very mean to dogs. No dog will mess with me unless they want to get an eye clawed out or an ear bitten off. I'm very tempermental and can react in a moment's notice. Momma calls me an 'old soul' because I'm not as hyper and cat-like as much as the other cats are.

What momma doesn't know is that I am not a cat, as a matter of fact I'm a god and these humans are only here to serve me. Momma agrees.

Toby
Birman
Male

Toby is a blue point tabby Birman. He believes himself to be a little human and craves human company. He is ultra affectionate and will answer when his name is called. He does not like me to have a lie in and will worry me until I "get up". However, if I am unwell, or sad, then he will stay by my side giving me knowing licks upon my nose. He is my beautiful little friend and I adore him.

I found Toby about 2 years ago or so, when I was walking home from school, Toby was stuck in a soccer net that had fallen over on him in the park, I resuced him and took him home, at first he wasn't very friendly. It took him time to trust me and my other cats. Now, Toby is a lovely friend to have and goes everywhere with me, he rides in the car and goes for walks without a leash or collar - Though he is trained to walk on a Leash-

Toby is one of those cats who acts like a dog.
Follows you everywhere.
Comes when you call his name.
Eats people food.
Will lie on his back for hours without care.
Loves foot rubs.
Is a Fansey Feast addict.
And to top it all off, he loves to snuggle. <3

How we got Toby? (also known as Toebs) We got him from a vet down South. He was kitten then and was abused by a 14 year old kid who kicked Toby in the face which caused him to have a wire in a jaw for a short period of time. Toby has some missing teeth from it, and his lower tooth even sticks out of his mouth. He has a hard time eating and never used to like strangers. After having him for 4 years now, he comes out to everyone. He loves to be loved and is fat and happy. :3

I must've had some bad people in my life. One day I found myself on a strange back porch hungry & thirsty. Some nice people starting putting out some food & water for me. Finally they thought I was SO cute, they took me to some strange place where they stuck me with some needles & did some snip-snip kinda stuff. I didn't feel too good for a few days after that - but I guess it was a good thing. I didn't think I was broken, but I heard them say I was fixed now. They had 2 other fur babies that meowed & they didn't like me at all. So a lady next door said she'd take me. She liked me but then her son's dog came to live with her & she said she couldn't have us both. The other nice people got on the phone & I heard them ask someone if they'd thought about getting a playmate for Harley. Uh-Oh...that doesn't sound so good - Harley??? A couple of days later this really nice lady came to see me & took me a couple of doors down to her house. I decided to show this Harley guy right away who was boss - so I hissed & slapped at him while sitting on her lap. Seemed to do the job. But when she put me on the floor I found out I was wrong. That Harley guy hissed & slapped at me!! Well, for a few days I had to stay closed up in a room alone all day. I got to come out for a little while at night, but Harley & I kept trying to show who was going to be boss & I'd have to go back to the room. About the 4th day Harley & I talked under the door & decided we'd play nice so I wouldn't have to be closed up. When she let me out that night we ran & played!! It was fun. I think I like my new brother & house. My Mom is pretty cool too. I play it pretty coy though. I won't sit on her lap like that big kiss-up Harley! What I do is wait until the middle of the night & go wake her up & purr really loud & butt her with my head until she loves on me. And I like being mischevious - she calls me a little toot! But it's a lot more fun snooping into everything than being such a scaredy cat like my big brother. (He runs & hides from the feather duster!! I'm brave - I even stay in the room when the vacuum is running!) I really love my new home & brother - and my Mom is the best. She gets upset with me sometimes when I won't stay off the cabinet & things like that, but I make her laugh a lot to make up for the frustrations. I know she loves me! (How could she NOT - I'm just so cool!!) : )

Mom found me at the local shelter and just had to take me home because I was so cute and affectionate! I'm the only kitty that she has actually picked out (all the other kitties just showed up one way or another and needed to be rescued)! But I'm also the only kitty that had a hard time fitting in with the other cats in the house...

I'm very affectionate with mom, and I'm coridal to the other humans who come to visit us, but I'm rather insecure with the other cats. An animal communicator told mom that I really wanted to be the only cat....but who wants to adopt a cat that sprays in the house?

I used to spray all over the house and fight with Kyle (he is the alpha cat). Mom tried everything that everyone suggested - flower remedies, herbs, giving me more attention, enriching my environment (which was already quite rich, actually) - but nothing made me stop spraying so now I'm on Prozac. She didn't want to put me on drugs, but she finally did it out of necessity because I was driving everyone, humans and cats, crazy. I don't spray or fight with Kyle now, but I still sometime pick on Jellybean who is the oldest.

It's probably a good thing that my mom adopted me, because a lot of people wouldn't have put up with my spraying and I might have ended up kick out of the house, or back at the shelter.

Odie is my best friend!

You may know me from lolcats, Flickr and more. I’m an awesome orange cat with eyes that match my fur. I don’t like being held but I like sprawling on chests.

Toby is a fat, gray cat who loves paper bags and tissue paper. And apparently food.
