There are times when I wish I were a cat. Of course it would depend much on the people who had me. If I could choose my caretaker, that would be ideal.
Cats know how to relax. They also are always prepared. Note how they stretch when they get up. They know how to melt ones heart with their purrs.

Abe..

I'm afraid Dusty has me trained, 6:30 AM she comes

on the bed, nips me in the back, if that doesn't work she curls

up behind my back. She has a large window seat looking outside,

a wing chair she sleeps on with a down comforter, in the big

closet she has a large pillow on the floor with another blanket.

She has in the livingroom a stool that holds all her toys, she sits

on it to look out at the birds, or she goes outside with a leash and

harness, matter of fact we had a write up in the paper here a few

years ago, I'll see if I can find it..Oh yes she eats only Fancy Feast.



Cheers..Joe...Very Happy

What about the flat screen TV, her own private Jet and a penthouse down by the beach?

Joe,
we have two cats that adoped us when we moved here. They are now full-grown with their own personalities. The big one, the boy, sleeps with us. He curls at my back and then makes his move. He pushes my wife off her pillow during the night. If she doesn' make way for him, he lays on her head.
The small one, the girl, is the hunter. She brings mice everyday and lays them at the back door. Sometimes it's just parts remaining. She tries to bring them in the house alive, but we don't let her in when she has a mouse hanging from her mouth. I'm not too fond of mouse-breath.

They are part of the family. They make their demands known and have succeeded in training us over the years. Even when you feel anger at times, the cute smiling face dispels the anger. They sure are clever.

Are you sure that Dusty isn't taking you for a walk, Joe?

Joe,
I believe they think they are doing us a good deed by bringing gifts. We must remind ourselves that it is "the thought that counts".
The boy is the bird catcher and the girl sticks to mice.

Al..

You are funny but it's true ! I have a photo on my

desk of Dusty It states :

Dogs come when they are called.

Cats take a message and get back to you later..

A big advantage of having a cat instead of a dog is that one doesn't need to walk the cat or worry about poop droppings. Training a cat to walk with a lease is something very special, and depending where one lives, a safety factor for the cat. Cats like to roam, climb trees and hunt. Cats are deprived of acting on those instincts when living in a city, however they do adjust as evidenced by Joe's cat, Dusty.
Cats, especially male cats, establish a territory and spray it, giving notice to other cats that they have crossed a boundary. Fighting to protect their territory is common.
I love cats. Each has a unique personality.
