Hello everyone, my name is Karen and I live in the state of ever-changing weather that is known as Kansas. At the moment our family has 4 cats: Sgt Pepper, Tonka, I.R. Kitty, and Carlito. No dogs at the moment as we just lost our last dog, a Papillon named Gypsy to old age.

This is Sgt Pepper and Tonka:

They are both 17 years old and are brother and sister. They were born here at our house. They've never been very close, mostly they just tolerate each other.

She's 14 years old. We found her along the side of the highway after her owner dumped her!

He's a stray we took in a few years ago. We don't know how old he is since he was full grown when he came to our house. He hates having his picture taken so this is the best I have of him.

As for me--I'm over the hill and loving it. As long as I've got a cat's chin to scratch and can listen to them purr with pleasure--I'm happy.
