And last but not least, we have Flo Flotsam...

Flotsam is a solid Iowa farm cat, & at 17 pounds she is a bit smaller than her litter mate "George Jetsam" who passed away in March 2011 (complications following treatment for a bladder blockage).

This handsome long-haired grey tabby is Chio....

....& in addition to being Princess Buttercup's litter mate, this average-size tabby is the only male cat currently in my household. Even before the littlest ones started trying to get him to play this poor little guy was "shell-shocked"  by all the attention my first female cat (Munchkin) showed him /-: apparently _any_ time I left them alone.
       Poor Chio is so shy & has spent so much time hiding under beds & couches that my parents have seen nothing but pictures & a grey tail flying past as he changes hiding places.

This is Princess Buttercup...

....a small Tortoise shell feline that epitomizes the definition of a house cat, spending most of her time between snacks sleeping. She & her litter mate were born on Valentine's Day, 2000.
