Too many cats!!
Love praying mantises! They creep me out the way they'll jump & attack you, but still love them! Didn't see any this year, unfortunately. They're pretty rare for us here. :(

Pics of one of my kitties.. Nyx! Got him the day that my golden passed away from cancer (he told me it was time, so I had him put down.. it's not what's best for me, but what's best for him.. broke my heart & it took over a year before I could pet another golden w/o tearing up.. in fact, the onions are starting right now thinking about Wolfgang). I had made an agreement w/a lady I knew who has a small farm on the outskirts of town who had some barn kitties who had kittens and she agreed that I could adopt one of her kittens when I needed to.. and I really needed to.

Nyx the day we brought him home, Mother's Day 2011. He was born April 1, 2011. He was one of 15 kittens from 2 moms.. the kittens were honestly starving as there was too many kittens & not enough mama milk. He's 5 weeks old in this pic. I didn't have to bottle feed him, but I did heavily supplement his diet of Tiki Cat with KMR for his first month with me.

About a month later, he's still tiny, but adorable!!

And curious about toys from other kitties. The big kitty is my true-albino, Chaos.

Fastforward about a year & half (first pix were May 2011, now we're looking Sept 2012). He's gotten so big!!

Nyx is very food driven. He loves food. All food. Guess that's from his extreme babyhood. Here he is at almost 2 years old. That's my big food in my bootie.

Took this pic w/DH's camera.. you can see just how crossed-eyed this poor kitty is!

Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.
