That has just turned into a "look at my cute cat!" thread. lol.

I was going to post a photo of my orange tabby, Nero but it's pointless as he looks just like OJ.

Lovely new picture of Charlotte, Amanda.


O.J. is a beautiful cat.  He's an orange tabby, right?

Thanks guys! He's quite the little pistol, but he's so calm and patient, too. I've only had him for a few months, but as you can see from the first pic, he gets along super well with the dogs and and he, Phoenix and Max are inseparable.

And yes Tim, he is an orange tabby.

It has indeed turned into that--we cat parents like to show off our babies, too :)  Please do post a photo of Nero; I'm sure we'd all like to see him.

I agree.  Post a picture of your Nero, Lisa. 

Cats are great.

I lost Aussie earlier this year, so I went and adopted my new baby, OJ.

Magnificent! :-)

Nero is a very handsome cat.  My sister has an orange tabby, too--his name is Steve.  Not sure where the name came from.

When I'm in the bath, the bathroom is closed. Tatiana will meow up a storm until I open the door again. She does not liked to be shut out of anything.

Fascinating, a Norwegian-Swedish-author called Beate Grimsrud (a female and better Knausgård, according to some) has written a novel that could have been about you, Tim, and Tatiana! In the book Evighetsbarna (= The children of eternity / the eternal children, published in Norwegian in 20015, by Cappelen Damm) you are called André and Tatiana is called Kassandra. Let's hope it gets translated into English!

In that novel the nurse anesthetist André and his cat, which should be the most learned cat in the world, considering all the lessons on all kinds of scientific subjects that André gives her, live in an appartment in a big snowy, northern city (Stockholm), but there are also some very famous Swedish (children's) books about a man and his hyperactive cat Findus living rurally, on a farm: "Pettson och Findus", by Sven Nordqvist. Apparantly they have been published in English too, as "Pettson and Findus". The illustrations are hilarious.

It was also published in Swedish in 2015, by Bonniers, as Evighetsbarnen.
