Arrival Story:
We decided to create this page because we are often asked about our large family of cats. Their individual stories are on each of their pages, but this will give you a little background. It will also allow our friends to give a rosette to all of us at once, instead of doing it individually. My husband and I are cat lovers, all animal lovers actually, but it was cats in need in our area, that got us started on rescue over thirty years ago. We live in a town with a mild climate and because of the nice weather a lot of the city's cats reside outside and breeding is not well controlled. Our shelters are few for the size of the town. So even though we never set out to live among a mob of cats ...we do now! Almost all of them have been found in our neighborhood or while traveling for our job. If we can confidently place the cat or kitten in a good home, we will, but if the animal requires medical attention, or on-going treatments for chronic conditions, or has behavioral problems, we usually end up keeping them. Our vet is generous and understanding, and works with us to control costs, which are in the thousands each year. A wonderful "Low-Cost Spay and Neuter" clinic also helps with ferals. We came to Catster in 2004, two months after it debuted, with one of our cats, our beloved Zack, sadly now an angel. There were barely over two thousand cats on the site at that time. Incredible how it has grown. Slowly we added our kitties until we had nine of them on-line, and we were known as "Nine Lives In Texas". I almost stopped there and did not put any other kitty family members on, fearing I might be labeled a "cat hoarder". I decided to ask in the Forums whether people wanted to see them all, and the overwhelming response was "put them all on", so we did! We are now 30+ strong and still growing...The Texas Wild Bunch.

Bio:
Some of the frequently asked questions are: Do they all have names?--Yes, people really ask this! I am always tempted to answer, no, we just number them instead.--Are they all fixed?--Yes, all but the youngest. We practice spay/neuter. and have fixed over a hundred cats through the decades.--How much litter do you use a day? --40 lbs!--How many litter pans do you use? --12 scooped twice daily--Do they all eat the same food?--Yes, except when one is on a special Rx food. We use 50 lbs of cat chow a week, plus about 15 cans a day.-- Do they all get along? --Mostly. We have occasional little squabbles but never so serious as to cause an injury.--Do they all sleep with you? --They all would like to! The number varies with the seasons from 4 to 20+! If either of us get up to go to the bathroom, we loose our place! My husband built four shelves at staggered, overlapping heights, above our bed, and they love to sleep there too. -- How old is your oldest cat?--Right now it's Xerox who is 15. Our oldest ever was 21, and many have lived into their late teens. About half our current population is over 10 years old.--Are you a registered charity?--No, not yet. We provide about 95% of the cats needs ourselves with some help from Catster friends. All help is always greatly appreciated. Also, Purina Company sends us food rebates and coupons. *** OUR DREAM*** We hope one day to have several acres and build a sanctuary for elderly and unwanted cats. I have so many ideas and always welcome suggestions. We would love to hear from you! You can write us at our purrsonal email: twb_texaswildbunch@yahoo.com

A Prayer For All Animals

Hear our humble prayer, O God,
for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for all those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
~Albert Schweitzer

Neighborly Love

This is our first diary as a family. We never started one before because we couldn't think of a good title. Hope you all like this one because it is very true...FAMILY MATTERS.

And so do furends, and neighbors.
Some of you know we have been going through rough times the last few years. It started with our house getting mostly ruined in a flood. Then daddy lost his job and could not find another to hire him because he's getting old. Just before Christmas daddy finally got a full time job. We all miss him a lot but mommy tries to give us extra attention to make up for him being absent.
Anyway, on to the neighbor part.
We have a neighbor named Winnie. She's from Australia and we love to hear her talk. Her voice sounds like a purr. She is one of only three people near us that mom trusts with knowing we all live here. Most people don't understand why anyone would have so many furs living with them. Mommy and dad buy our dry kibble at Sam's Club. They had it on a promotion but limited it to six bags. We eat two 25lb bags a week so our pawrents bought the limit. Mom asked her friend Winnie if she would buy six with her Sam's membership and mommy would give her money. So mommy gave her enough for another six bags, but guess what? She came back with TWELVE!!! Our kind neighbor bought the additional six bags with her daughter's membership card because she loves mommy and us! Mommy was crying like a baby because daddy was worried about money and this will help so much. Aren't people amazing? So me say..."LOVE THY NEIGHBOR" Because we all sure do!!!

Bunches of Purrs,
The TWB
