Title: Dogs Drool and Cats Rule....Or is it Cats Drool?
Post by: Hisgirl on August 14, 2007, 07:03:04 am
I have two cats and three dogs.  The other day my husband said he thinks he picked up on the kitty's thoughts.  He was petting her, as the dogs outside were whining to be let in.  He said, "Dark Kitty...I'll bet if it were up to you, the dogs would never come inside."  He said instantly, in his mind, he heard, "If it were up to me, I wouldn't let YOU inside."   :D

Here's a pic of one of my kitties. (we'll see just how simple/complex the picture posting buttons are!

That is a beautiful tortoise shell calico.  I do like cats but when other people own them.

These are my first cats.  I was always a-feared of kitties and was certain they would try to suck the breath out of me while I calmly slept.  Didn't help when I would awake to two kitties standing on my chest staring intently at my jugular vein.  Their ears looked like four little witch hats.   :o

However, now they play fetch, come when called, and adore me.  Mama says if our sizes were switched they'd eat me, but that's beside the point.   ;D

My parents have my calico @ their house.  I wasn't allowed to take her when I got married.  She slept on my head, or as close as she could get, until I left home.  She's getting older now and I think they're going to have to put her down soon.  I'm sad.  I will have your kitty pics to look @ so it will be cool.

My mom wouldn't let me have her.  I really wanted to take her but it was a no go.  Pete and i have had 7 cats since we were married and no we have none.  They weren't from good seed, they were very harmful to our home.  I'm sure you can fill in the blanks.  Your cats are beatutiful.  The white/orange one a male and the white one a female?

Consider blanks filled! One thing with any animals, you have to be prepared to takt the **** that comes with them!

No, they're both toms (or used to be toms!)

The white one I got from a rescue home and he is a PAT cat, goes to visit old folks in the local folks home. (Pets as Therapy)

The ginger tom was a local stray and insinuated himself into my home - and they call them 'dumb' animals! He weighs 14lbs and is the sweetest natured cat I ever knew. But sadly, despite what it looks like, they really don't get on too well, though things are improving bit by bit. But then, it's only been 4 years!

Well my Bruce cat passed away on Sunday.  She was asleep.  My parents are burying her in the back yard.  She lived a good life.

Your toms are beautiful.  Feel free to post more pics of them.  It's cool that he goes visiting.  What does PAT mean? 

I had an all white cat when I was a teenager.  He was the sweetest ever.

Oh, so sorry to hear about your Bruce. Sad!

PAT stands for Pets As Therapy meaning they go round residential homes, hospices and even hospitals to give the patients/residents some enrichment. Mostly it's dog that do it but though there are around 3,550 PAT dogs in the UK, there are only about 90 PAT cats!! They also ahve rabbits and cockateels, all sorts. All the animals have to be vetted by a vet and tested for compatability by a trained animal behavourist to make sure the animal is suitable. My Oscar passed with flying colours! TomTom wouldn't. He has panic attacks when I even take him to the vet for a check-up, bless him! I think he was terrily abused before he came to me as it took me ages to win his trust and for a long time, that was terribly fragile.

Here's another of him when I think he was actually asking me for his dinner! It's tiny because for a long time I used this pic as my avatar
