They all lived out the rest of their natural lives, mom with my folks and kids with my sister & bil.

 
Did Mom ever get together again with her kids?  I always wonder if cats recognize family members.  When my neighbor brought their cat Indy (Rocco's and Capone's brother) over to my house about a month after we'd rescued them, it wasn't warm and fuzzy.

One person was sucked out of the plane, hopefully it was the terrorist.

I'd heard originally that it was the terrorist who was sucked out of the plane.
 
Oh well, it was a Somali airline, so whoever got sucked out was probably a terrorist or close to it, anyway.

No, my sister never brought them back over.

The problem you guys had was almost certainly because they were all male cats. Female cats can be around other females or males without fighting.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Probably true.  I remember how my neighbor's male cats always hassled their lone female cat.
 
My Killer wasn't like that at all.  In fact, he spent weeks hanging near that female, trying to woo her.  One warm evening, we were outside and watched as the female cat finally came right up to him and gave him some face time.  Killer looked over at us as if to say "Did you see that?".
 
Unfortunately, that was his last evening alive.  He died the next day.  For the next few days, that female cat came over to my front lawn and seemed to be waiting for her new friend to come out and hang with her some more.  Cry
 
 
Here they are---Killer and Princess---a few weeks before she finally gave him face.
 

 
 
Great.  Now I'm all bummed out.

Confused Here's a few 'changes' that makes all the sense in the world, but just seems really strange and may take a bit to get used to...

Big smileI absolutely love this story...all the speculation and even some religious fervor...yet, as amazing and breath-taking as it is, maybe the answer is as simple as an optical illusion.
 
 
However, seeing it actually brings to life reoccurring dreams of places where I find myself going it alone, in another life, some other time...except royal blue light shines from all the windows. A stranger in a foreign civilization, some speak my language, most do not. This is a place not defined by good and bad, right, and wrong they have a common religion (not mine), their behavior is civilized, not hostile but not always 'open-armed', yet they appreciate unbiased innocence and curiosity fueled by a strong desire to learn and allow all to come and go as they desire...and I find it totally interesting

Seeing as how it's China, maybe the pollutants in the air are dense enough to actually build a city on.  Of course, then, you'd have to worry about airquakes.

ShockedConfused"...*I* suggest skipping seafood and load up on Chick-fil-a...", I suggested to the ol'Peeps over the phone, this afternoon, as I drove down I64, towards The Estate In The Swamp.
"..but WHHHHHYYYYY?"
"Because I think 'The Minnow' has just been found, along with 'The Skipper' and 'Gilligan', too...", the two of whom were scratching their heads as they spoke with Virginia State Troopers while trying to explain why they were floating on the wrong side of the road, doncha know...
I think aka said he needed some boat parts, didn't he?
