    When I taught high school, I used to tell the students, especially the girls, never to get serious about anyone who said they hate cats. What they hate is their independence, and if they can't stand it in a pet, they won't like it in a significant other.

    this was Watson who sadly passed last year (this was the last photo I took of him) who hated my guitar playing and would get on my knee and try to push the guitar away

    And this is Billie who also hates my guitar playing...there’s a theme here!

    We've got four of the little buggers at the present. We've had well over a dozen in the 44 years we've been married. Grey cats are the most affectionate. The latest two came as a set---Luke and Leia---brother and sister. Basically feral rescues. He's acclimated pretty well, but she's the embodiment of the term, scaredy cat.

    Dogs have masters; cats have servants.

    I hope isn’t because my playing... (or my bedroom amp’s volume):D

    Minnow. One of three (and sometimes 4) cats that frequent our house. If I was to have a cat it would be him.

    I almost like this, but then I remember my father didn't like cats, but treated my mother as a partner. He had his boundaries, but in the 11 years of marriage before his death they had two fights that I remember and they were nothing compared to some that I had have been though.

    I think people who grow up on or around farms have a different perspective on animals. To him, cats were barn animals good for hunting rats. Dogs on a farm serve as protectors of their livelihood.

    Ultimately, he gave in a let me have a cat who had adopted us after our neighbors dog had gotten fixed and wouldn't let her in the yard anymore. Nermal was a huntress and used to bring her prey home for us. I think he respected that. "She's okay for a cat."

    Common goals and respect are what make a healthy relationship.

    We got two new Abyssinian kittens a few months ago. One of them has a future as a drummer!

    Ha! You're right, it does kinda look like that, doesn't it... she's already grown too big to squeeze thru the hole anymore, but for a few weeks it was great fun. Abys are curious about everything!

    We have three cats total and I love them all, but the one that "owns" me is a very "petite" 23-pound (10.4kg) Norwegian Forest Cat named Freyja. When she stands up, she comes almost to the top of my thigh-- I'm 5' 8''.

    We also have a male Maine Coon mix who is about 17 pounds, and a female Tonkinese who runs around 10 pounds... Frejya dwarfs both of them in size.

    Don't let your cats run free, please! If you do, at least neuter them. There are far too many feral cats out there. They're really efficient hunters, and have decimated the wild bird population world wide. In most cities, you're required to keep your pets under control, and not let them run. We've had well over a dozen of the little idjits---four at the present. They've all been rescues.
IMPORTANT: Treat everyone here with respect, no matter how difficult!
