Do you have a cat? - Page 29

Ragdolls are quite popular on this forum.

Bob, great pictures and beautiful cats. One of the cats we lost this winter has a 22# ragdoll named Maximus Giganticus.

New cats are both pure bred Siberians. We should get them at the beginning of July. They are half sibs; different mothers but same sire.

While we do not plan to "walk" our cats, we hope to get them used to those pet harnesses and allow them to romp around our back yard while we sit outside. No idea if that will work. Our other cats would just hunker down and act like they lost their balance when we put the harness on.

Here's a pic of our ragdoll lying on our king size guest bed in way of perspective.

Beautiful cats the last few pages. Here are some pictures of the tank we made for my girlfriend's cat:

Let me tell you something, Pio, we lost our boy, Igor, two years ago, and I still get choked up when I think about him. And there's no replacing the ones that have passed away - you will just get another cat but with totally different personalities.

For those who do not like cats, my theory is that they have been around cats who have been treated poorly in the past. Cats are fascinating animals in many ways, but one trait that stands out to me is that they have kept so many wild traits in spite of their domestication. In fact, they are one of the few animals that domesticated themselves without the intervention of humans. That being said, cats are going to be reticent towards people if they haven't been treated well in the past. My speculation is that they are not gong to open themselves up easily if their trust has been already betrayed sometime in the past.

My theory about people that do not like cats is their own personality baggage. People that need co-dependency invariably do not like cats. You don't own cats, they allow you to share their living space (your home).

FWIW, I'm one of those rare people that truly like both cats and dogs. You have to appreciate each species for what they tend to be.

I think that greater exposure and respect for animals has been increasing the number of people who feel this way.

It's interesting having my cat at this early stage because I'm watching our habits, understandings, and agreements develop, adding little quirks to our relationship. There are so many little things that simultaneously make me scratch my and put a smile on my face.

Was emailing with our breeder last night. If all things go according to plan, i.e. kittens keep putting on weight and can tolerate their spay/neuter, we should have them the last week of June. They'll be about 12 weeks old (the female is five days older than the male). We're looking forward to having the fuzzy terrorists amongst us again.

I've always wanted a cat that could transform into a dog so you can take it for walks in the park, but then can transform back to cat back home and be low maintenance. It would be great if it could also transform into a pegasus and you can ride it on your commute. Walking my cat, Paisley. She doesn't like the leash very much and doesn't like venturing outside with it on, so I'll put her in the car and drive to the cemetery (which we live right next to), and take her out. She'll meow for a bit and then have a walk around, depending on her mind.

Absolutely, I am the same way. I just happen to like cats for their independence, physical prowess, and their ability to drape in my arms, lap, or next to me when I'm laying down. And I reiterate - cats are essentially wild animals that choose to live with us, and for an animal lover, I find their qualities and behavior fascinating.
