Here are some of my guys:
First, my baby, Leonidas (aka Leo). He is an Egyptian Mau and is about 1 1/2 years old.
Here is Anubis, he is a Cornish Rex. He is one of 6 Rexes that we rescued from a backyard breeder. All of them male, all of them severely neglected, scratches all over, bald spots all over, all with ear mites, one with ear mites and an ear infection so bad that his head is permanently tilted to one side. Anubis, we guess is about 1 - 1 1/2 years old.
Here is Oliver, also a Cornish Rex. He too is one of the 6 mentioned above. He seemed like he was feral when we picked him up, but now is one of the most loving cats I've ever met. We guess that he is about the same age or maybe a little younger than Anubis, as he was smaller than Anubis when we got him.
Last but not least is the Queen, Lucy. She is a Blue Point Oriental. We "rescued" her from a breeder who was neglecting her. We got her when she was 6 months old and she was way under weight. You could see all her vertebrae and ribs by sight. When we meet her the breeder told us he was getting rid of her because she didn't have enough white in her coat. Then proceeded to explain to us that the more fat a cat has on it, the darker their coat gets. So we deduced that he was starving her to try to keep a lighter coat??? We really didn't want another cat at the time, but when she was getting fidgeting in my lap, the breeder grabbed her out of my lap by one arm. It was at that point, even though we really weren't ready for another cat at the time, we had just lost a cat, we felt we didn't have a choice but to buy her from the breeder to give her a better life. She is almost 2 years old.
