Old white cats keep out of the sun

A problem with white cats is they get cancer on thier ears from the sun.
If they must go out side, put some sunscrene on thier ears. They may lick some off, but a little will stay.

I have a light skinned cat that gets sunburn from just sitting in the window. So I'm real careful. During the sunner I keep the blinds down.

Clintons bid farewell to Socks the cat, age 20


Former First Cat Socks, one of the world’s most famous felines, died Friday at the age of 20 after battling throat cancer since November. A stray cat rescued by the Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, Socks lived in the governor’s mansion in Arkansas and later moved with the family to the White House.

"Socks brought much happiness to Chelsea and us over the years, and enjoyment to kids and cat lovers everywhere," the Clintons said in a statement, released first to PEOPLE.COM. "We're grateful for those memories, and we especially want to thank our good friend, Betty Currie, for taking such loving care of Socks for so many years."

Currie, the president's personal secretary, and her husband, Bob, took over care of Socks after the Clintons left the White House. It was near their home in Maryland that Socks was put to sleep Friday morning. "He could no longer stand and wasn’t eating," according to family friend and presidential historian Barry Landau.

His pal Buddy the Lab
Though much was made of the fact that Buddy, the family’s beloved brown Labrador retriever – who died after being hit by a car in 2002 – remained with the Clintons while Socks did not, Landau says, "The truth be known, Betty asked if Socks could come live with her. The Clintons didn’t abandon Socks. They were totally conflicted. It broke their hearts, but they knew it would be the right thing for Socks’ welfare.”

"Betty had lost a close family member and a dog and they wanted to do something nice for her," continues Landau, noting that Hillary Clinton had just been elected to the U.S. Senate.

22 Year Old Rescue CAT - Advocates 4 Animals Feline Rescue

This video is of "KAT"-- she is 22 years young and going strong! We are a small feline rescue & rehabilitation group located in Xenia, OH (www.Advocates4Animals.com) and we operate solely through DONATIONS and with VOLUNTEERS. We have a true devotion to the animals and do everything we can to rescue as many homeless felines and place them into loving, committed homes to call their very own! KAT came to us when her elderly owner became terminally ill and had to be placed in a nursing home. He had no family or friends- and therefore no one to care for his beloved 22 year old "Kat". The veterinarian contacted us just 1 hour before the scheduled euthanasia and we saved her just in time! She is a wonderful girl and loves every day of life! Although she may look 22, she doesn't act it. She is happy and healthy and loves life! Special kitties like KAT have a forever place with us at Advocates 4 Animals.
If you are able to donate-- please know that 100% of donations go towards the rescue and rehabilitation of homeless pets. Every dollar makes a huge difference in the lives of homeless pets. Thank you for caring for the animals and please visit us: www.Advocates4Animals.com

Jingles the Cat by peninsulaspca 12 yrs

Why hello, my name is Jingles. I am an altered female cat who is 12 years old (I like to say young) with a pretty calico short coat. I can be adopted by a first time pet owner or a family with children since I have such a friendly and sunny disposition! I am also gentle and attentive. I also very much like being held and am quite affectionate! I am not sure about living with other animals (but I could try). So if you are looking for a sweet senior kitty that loves to give and receive attention then ask for me, Jingles, ID A443594.

A TRIBUTE TO HOMELESS CATS

Xena the Warrior Kitty

Xena is the feline matriarch of the family. She's 10 years old and rules the roost. She refuses to take her meals with the other 3 cats and insists on having her food in another part of the room. She's not much on bathing, and doesn't appreciate it when the other cats try to help her out with that. This video shows Xena being Xena. This is about as exciting as it gets with her.
