    I first need some Blofeld-like jacket, preferably a Forestière by Arny's. Then, and only then, will I feel entitled to owning a cat.

    What is the attraction of a pet who looks down on you? I want my animals to understand that they are inferior to me.

    This seems to make your choices of pets rather sharply limited. [​IMG]

    My childhood cat, skippy, was just put down at the old age of about 23. Have another cat, hatty, that I got in my teens, but lives with my mom; I guess she's her cat now. Anyway, hatty had always been nice but very independant. Earlier this year she just lost her balance, something called idiopathic vestibular something or other. Now she walks around with her head tilted to the side, won't jump up on high things, and is very needy and quite vocal.

    I'm sorely disappointed by the lack of an 'Anne Hathaway's Pussy' option.

    I think cats are actually much manlier creatures than dogs. Think about it: independent, self-sufficient loners who want to do things their way and like to be in control of their environment as much as possible. Their social ties are less deep, though the few bonds they do form tend to be very strong.

    Dogs: constantly social, they need attention and time alone just makes them sort of depressed. They need frequent reassurance, they have large circles of friends, and they generally play better with others.

    Think of it this way: assuming they were both able to use and communicate with it, do you think your dog or your cat would spend more time on the phone?

    You have pwned me enough lately. I cannot take any more pwnings. If you have any merciful bones in your body, please, stop!

    I have a civet cat, but he is less of a pet and more of a coffee machine.

    We have 2 cats and a dog.


    I have 1 inside cat and about 7 outside.

    The outside cats aren't mine. They belong to the block. They are a real trip. They go where they think the service is best. I was giving them IAMS and they came around often. Then some bastard started giving them Sheba or some other gourmet wet food, and they went there. And now some SOB is giving them Tenptations, which is like cat opium! The competition is brutal.


    Rnoldh - if you want to step up the competition and get the cats back, give them Wellness brand wet cat food http://www.wellnesspetfood.com/. In taste and nutritional value, it puts all of the grocery store wet foods to shame.

    I positively hate cats. The only reasons why I don't shoot them on sight are that I don't own a gun and that I have this weak spot in me saying that every creature has the right to live. At least as long as it isn't destined to be eaten by me. And as I can't stand cats i don't like the idea to eat them.

    I couldn't resist the cheap shot and felt remorseful immediately afterwards, if that gives you any comfort.

    It doesn't, because I know all too well how you feel. [​IMG]

    You know way too much about musical theatre for this to be plausible.

    And now for something completely gay. A Vietnam memorial type tribute to all the cats I have known since I was 5.

    Yoshio
    Sally Puff
    Mickey
    Smokey Joe
    Red
    Cinders

    Now all dead. My next cat, if there will be one, will be one of those animals they keep at old folks homes to take the near deads minds off their incontinence and mental deterioration.

    No, he really is talking about cats. That other kind is yucky.

    A women that works here, she's in her late 70's/early 80's, been here 40+ years, anyway she comes up to talk to you and due to our seating arrangement here, when she is talking to me her ass is in the face of the guy next to me and vice versa. She has no sphincter control. None. She stands there talking to you and the other guy is getting blasted. She is at a point where she really does not care (she lets loose in the elevator, walking down the hall) and I think that is badass.
