Kays Hill Whites and Greys Past and Present

This is the latest batch of photos from Leanne and I think her title for the poster is very apt:

‘Brilliant whites and glorious greys’

….certainly describes those beautiful cats and kittens.

Grey is an interesting colour for a cat’s coat I think, because there are many shades of grey.

White and grey cats

Two useful tags. Click either to see the articles:- Toxic to cats | Dangers to cats
We have only ever had one grey cat, we called her Alice and sadly she only lived for three years. We rescued her as a tiny kitten from a coal shed where the dog of the family had attacked the mother cat, killed Alice’s siblings and injured her hip.

It seems that the dog caused her brain damage too, although she had 3 happy years with us before she had to be PTS due to having fits constantly. It was a very sad time.

Do you have a grey cat or a white cat? Or do you know one? Leanne and I hope you will share your photos here of both/either colour.

  1. Very candid and latest photo’s of my cats at home in Mumbai taken on Friday(23-8-2013). Tomcat Matata had jumped onto the basin observing his dam Matahari entering the bathroom,stalking her movements.At times they play “Hide-Seek” like children, chasing and tracking each other like “BIG CATS”.Notice the faint “Tiger stripes” of tomcat Matata. Cats as pets reminds us of “Big Cats” in the jungles, miniature replica’s.My cats are toilet trained and use the bathroom for their toilet.I was lucky to be at home at the right time to click this rare photo shoot.

    • He has a beautiful coat: dilute red tabby with very faint markings. He is a handsome cat. Nice traditional Persian appearance. Far better than the extreme Persian. Excellent photo Rudolph.

      • Thanks for the wonderful compliments on the condition of my cats.If wealthy in the “Billionaire Class” i would have loved owning horses or at least training “Race-horses”.My cats are my “Race-horses” at home, something i can afford to maintain according to my income and leisure.Credit for feeding them goes to my house-keeper Sabina.Dias to whom both my cats are very attached akin to the human and animal relationship between Syces and race-horses.I would have loved to exhibit my cats in a “Cat Show” but sadly in Mumbai we are yet to have a “Cat Show”.Thanks to the “INTERNET” at least we all fellow cat-owners can get to know and study cats from different pedigrees, Country’s and owners.

      • Michael, our building has one of the best private gardens in Mumbai city. This is the small playground lawn within our building compound.From my gallery spotting squirrels, Koels, flying foxes and parakeets is common.Hard to believe that we live in the midst of one of the World’s most populated City’s.Hope the trees and surrounding greenery, garden is preserved for future generations as our locality gradually becomes a skyscraper concrete jungle.

  2. the white cat we have here at the moment is harry. he looks so handsome and everyone who sees him loves him straight away. however, harry can be very temperamental and will bite if he feels like it. he lived with an old lady for 4yrs and was very spoiled and when she could no longer look after herself she had to go and live with family but, because of the family dogs dislike of cats, harry came to us. we try to be as understanding as possible with him but unfortunately his behaviour does put people off taking him. we know that there is a home out there somewhere we just need to find it for him. he didnt like other cats but has accepted Twinkletoes, a little tabby queen, so i’m sure we can help change his grumpy attitude. sometimes he loves being fussed but 5 mins later wont tolerate it. i suppose thats just cats for you!!

  3. the silver tabby at the top in the middle of the poster is stella. she came to us at 16 yrs old because her owner had died. she was very stressed and unhappy. she got a fabulous home with a great family who came just to look at older cats. stella and tig (16yrs old too) went off to live with this lovely family, they couldnt decide which one to take so took both.

      • they had recently lost their old cat at about 20 yrs old and had come to see the older cats as they thought they would like to give an oldie a loving home. they had a little lad,about 11 yrs old who, although he loved the kittens and younger cats we had, he was very excited about giving an older cat a home. as i said, lovely family. we last heard from them a couple of years ago nearly and at that point both stella and tig were still going strong, they would have been at least 19 yrs old by then, and both ruling the roost! they have possibly both gone by now, although i’d like to think they were still happy and healthy, but i know that at the latter part of their lives they have both been loved and cared for by truly nice people. many, many thanks to all the good people who take on these oldies that no-one else wants.
