I currently have three wonderful kitties:
- Josie is a beautiful gray tabby that I found as a six week old kitten while jogging. She has
gorgeous eyes, and the softest meow you've ever heard.
- Riley was in need of home after his human mom fell ill. I instantly fell for this boy. He is fun
and playful - but also sweet and on the prowl for affection.
- Cali was living on the hot, mean streets of downtown Dallas when I found her as a kitten. She
is sassy and playful, and she'll let you know if you aren't petting her right :)
I've also lost four great cats over the years. I miss them all.
- Tiger was an incredibly cool male cat that all the lady cats admired. He passed away
in November 2008 at approximately 18 to 19 years old. Tiger was my very first cat, and he set a high bar for what a
feline friend can be.
- Linda was a strikingly beautiful brown tabby who passed away in February 2010 at age
15-1/2. She had chronic renal failure, but it was a sudden flair up of lymphoma that caused her the most harm. Linda
and Tiger were best friends for over 14 years. She was sweet and vocal and gorgeous.
- Princess was a one-eyed, black, semi-feral cat I rescued from near my office building.
When danger was near she would quietly slip away, and try to be as small as possible. She adored Tiger, and after he
passed away in 2008, she became close to me - and I ate it up. It was very honored that she let me into her heart.
- Sali was a cat with tremendous personality. She lived in my office at work. Sali passed
away at the young age of four from leukemia in August 2006. She brightened the day of everyone who crossed her path.
All my cats are indoor-only cats to protect them from disease, cat fights, mean people, coyotes and cars. To enhance
their quality of life, they have access to an outdoor cat enclosure and to indoor catwalks (see below).
I built my kitties some catwalks inside my house to provide them with a less boring environment.

The Catrun & Cat Enclosure
I keep my cats indoors but I built them some outdoor enclosures so they
can walk on grass, catch bugs and get some fresh air.

On some connections, the video may be a bit jerky as it "buffers" while
streaming in the video. In that case you might let it completely
finish and then play it again.
