    Yikes. Sounds like something in a Poe story.

    Supposedly, they will also jump into the shower with you. This, I really don't need.

    Some Siamese cats will also howl for no apparent reason. It sounds like a baby crying and can be very disconcerting if you're not used to it.

    Dog lover here. It's in my blood to hate cats. But I gotta say, the coat on that Bengal is amazing!

    +1 Although I will never tire of turning the shower on on a cat stupid enough to sneak in the bathtub.

    I know that cats in California often go the the stomachs of Coyotes and Racoons.

    Watching kittens fight is one of my favorite pasttimes. It should be broadcast on TV.

    Then you, sir, are my sworn enemy!

    I actually love dogs, though I guess if pushed I'd say I prefer cats. I've never understood why people feel like they have to choose.

    I was trying to think of a reason for my dislike for cats. I know that when I was younger, I would play with my babysitter's cats all the time. Maybe things changed when one of the kittens got it's claw stuck in my eyebrow, and I started to keep my distance. My family has almost always had a dog. I know some dogs get along fine with cats, but mine have always hated them. But then, sporting/gun dogs will generally dislike anything that's small and non-canine - squirrels, cats, birds, even babies. I guess I've just adopted their ways. I've found dogs to be more affectionate, playful and responsive. Most cats seem to be more comfortable off in a corner somewhere, licking their paws, napping or minding their own business. Also, I'm very surprised with the number of cat lovers here. When discussing this with my gf earlier, she said she finds it odd when a single man has a cat. When a couple have a cat, she believes it's usually due to the woman bringing it into the relationship, and not the man. Yeah, I know... holy generalizations Batman. [​IMG] But back to the Bengal cat. It's really interesting the recent (?) development in these "designer" cats... I bet they cost a pretty penny, but it's amazing what a little playing God with cat breeds can do.

    I recall a film in (middle school?) science class about cats. One particular segment focused on their reflexes: a little kitten is dropped in to a terrarium containing a king cobra....the next scene is the kitten playfully batting the snake, which has exhausted itslef to the point of complete incapacity by repeatedly bashing in to the walls after striking at the kitten and missing (i.e. kitty moving out of the way)....[​IMG]

    I visited the Largo Argentina here in Rome today. It is a complex of 2000-year-old temples which is now an official cat sanctuary. Just another amazing example of how the ancient Romans built something which is still in use today.

    The baby of a snake is still a snake. Don't be fooled!

    What a sick thing to do to a poor kitten! I hope the kitten was removed from the terrarium to a place of safety and spared...if she hadn't already killed the damned snake!

    I am a dog man. However, cats can make good, lovable pets. I loathe snakes!

    Scientists trace cat's ancestry back to Middle East.
