Here's one of my boys, Sam. Sam was a man of the streets in my aunt's neighborhood as a kitten and honestly, I reluctantly took him to live with me in my new house. I really do love him...now...



Since he was a "wild" one he was used to fighting for his food. He was so little when I took him home.
After a few years, he definitely has evolved from a skittish kitten to a cat that is not afraid to gently paw at you until you pay him attention...

He doesn't have to fight anymore for his food...but somehow it seems like he still thinks he has to eat all he can...
Yeah...Sam has a weight problem...or could it be a wait problem? He likes to lie around all day and wait until his food is put out...
But he is so darn cute! We have been working on him getting more exercise and I think he plays with the contraption for probably a total of 3 minutes a day...If humans are supposed to do like 30 minutes, 3 minutes should be enough for a cat, right? I think if I moved around on all fours, my belly might swing from side to side too...I just get the privilege of walking upright...

the last picture of him cracks me up!!!!

Hi. I just found your blog. I love it. I love your name too. My daughter's middle name is Rayne. I'm not sure if she'll like it or hate it (she's only 14 months old). Your cat is really cute. I have 1 too.

I've got a cat named Chloe who is "big boned". She won't let her sister get any food until she is done!

Visiting from SITS - I love Sam! I too have a large and in-charge cat, Max (he's a brown tabby). He likes to lay down WHILE eating and spill his food to the floor so that he doesn't have to hold his head up :)!

Enjoying your blog!

OH My Gosh too cute!...I have a fat cat too (shh she doesn't know she's got a weight problem though)
I was in search of a yellow tabby and when I got there to pick the little male orange tabby up...there was this sweet little calico being very shy and sweet. The male puffed up...bounced sideways a couple of times and spit at me. The Cali curled up in my lap and purred. So we brought Princess Lucy home.

My daughter is already in bed but I'll be showing her this tomorrow...She'll love Sam!
