I adopted Addi from Nelson Cheese factory in Nelson, Wisconsin. She was a cat that was living outdoors at their business. She is a beautiful silver tabby cat with a little bit of cream coloring in her hair. I had Addi for about 6 months and she became pregnant by my cat Peter. Addi had five healthy kittens. Addi involved the help of my neutered Toms in baby sitting her kittens along with their Aunt Nicole.
When the kittens were about nine weeks old I gave two of them to a kind and loving home. I look at their pictures on Facebook and they are living in the lap of luxury. She named the kittens Leo and Cleo.
I named Addi’s other three kittens Mr. Gray, Hilford and Sherlock and they are large and sturdy looking neutered Tom’s. The other day Addi was sleeping on a large cat mat with Hilford and Nicole cuddled up together. I find Peter cuddled up with Nicole, Sherlock, Hilford and Mr. Gray with his feet or head sticking out of the heated cat bed.
The cat family gets along with Faith and Cali but they never cuddle up with them since they are not related to them. They like my cat Russ because he used to baby sit Addi’s kittens for her so he gets to cuddle up with them like he was part of their family.
My Related cat family is fun to watch in the way that they care for each other and keep each other warm. They like to play games together and toss a catnip mouse to each other. Since I always had outdoor cats as a child I never got to see how the inner workings of a related cat family actually worked until I was able to watch them in a house on a daily basis. The inner workings and concern for each others well being in a cat family is not that much different then the concerns a human family has for each others well being. They watch over each other on a daily basis.
