Red tabby, just after the judge had demonstrated the "stroke its lower back and it raises its butt" reflex.

A teddy-bear smoosh-face (no, that's not the technical name of the breed) being prepared to be shown off. It reminded me of Bagpuss.

This judge's top pick together with its owner. Yes, there is a cat somewhere in that bundle of fur.

This little cutey didn't win an award. The little girl who was looking after it gave the judge quite a dirty look.

We have one cat and she doesn't tear up anything while we're gone but boy does she come runnin' when we walk in the door.
I also have one cat, for 5 years now, when I've always had two. Cats act a little differently when they're the only one. When I had two male cats and the older one passed at 15, the younger one started acting like king of the roost. Now I just have a female cat I rescued (another deaf cat, I keep only the deaf ones), and she does fine alone, but she does wait by the door for me to come home, it's pretty cute.
Also, if you'd like to bust urine smells for good, use a food-grade hydrogen peroxide, slightly diluted. Chemical reaction destroys the ammonia for good, but watch for colorfastness.
