    I've been meaning to put up pics of the whole family for a while, but I was finishing my graduate thesis so I'm not too broken up about it. These are my 2 cats Ashley (left) and Sprite.

    I got them from a local rescue about 4 years ago when they were kittens. Their main hobby is whatever I'm doing at the time...

    ...followed closely with getting cat hair all over my clothes.

    Sometimes I catch them in their "synchronized sleeping" routine.

    And another picture of Ash because she's so pretty...

    I could overload the forum with more cat pictures, but I'll spare you :p. I'm going to be a crazy cat/tortoise lady when I'm older...

    Haha, excellent point. Anyway I already have started, just waiting until I have a bigger place to expand. I'm going to have a whole room devoted to iguanas. *sigh* I dream...

    I love Ash's marking too. She looks like a turkish van cat. (I'd never heard of them until after I got her)[hr]
    My thesis is about the effects of steroids on integrin signaling. (Cell biology if you're not familiar) The response I usually get to that is "Oh....that's nice." ;)

    Yay! I love making people love cats. I've had cats since I was 3 years old and can't imagine life without them. They are wonderful creatures. Yes mine are best buddies. :) They are littermates so they've been together their whole lives.

    Excellent choice :) Although I'll admit I didn't set out to rescue the kitties. I had some extra time my senior year of college so I started volunteering at the shelter. We couldn't have pets in the dorms so I needed my cat fix. Of course I found some that I couldn't leave behind when I graduated. :p

    I've never had a dog, oddly enough. I always say my cats are like dogs because they follow me around, are very talkative, and run to greet me at the door when I get home from work.

    yeah that would be one of my favorite things about dogs is when the greet you! :D but i have a little chiuhuahua and she is like a cat! :D and i think thats the reason i like them so much! and it was so funny so i lived in texas for like 12 years and for the first like four or five years we had like 9 dogs and two cats... well the cats would chase the dogs!! it was hilarious!! :D but not all cats are like that so i wouldnt want to risk it :) i too am planning on volunteering at a shelter sometime soon :)
