When I was five years old on my birthday my cat gave birth to 5 kittens, they were named tom, tiger Susie sugar and rusty[guess which one was red and which ones were white?]. Well in my life I have had over 20 cats, 19 have died. Most had pretty good lives for cats living between 15 to 20 years , a couple over 20 years and a few less then 12.I always liked cats because they seem to be honest, Dogs are basically so helpless and wimpy and made to be human's slaves. Cats are independent, they can be loving, caring in a animal way not human of course. They can be sly, wise, cold at times and distant. They also cause very little problems just give them a clean cat tray and feed them a few times a day. A dog, well we know. When your not in the mood a cat will bug you only for a few minutes and then get the point and move to another part of a house. A dog forget it, when it wants you it will insist for hours. There are many other nice things I can say about cats, but I don't want to bore you. point made.

I believe cats have passed dogs as the most popular pet in America, but I'm pretty sure that's cause their lower maintenance. I love how they will lay on your lap or paperwork when you want them the least. I'm guessing my mother has owned close to 50 cats in her lifetime. She use to dress them up as a kid, so the love of them has passed on to me (not the dressing up stuff).

Cats also poop in a litter box (if house broken), bury it, turn around to sniff and see if they can still readily smell it, then bury some more. You have to wal ka dog, unless you want your back yard smelling like dog piss and shit. Have you ever smelled those yards before? Especially on a hot day? Try being a neighbor to a house like that. It's terrible.

A dog barks. It's annoying. At the worst your cat may meow some (unles you leave it out over night and it's a screamer while in heat).

Cats have provided us with icanhascheezburger.com. Dogs, Eh...

I've never heard of a cat mauling a kid to death. Now, I've had an evil cat. It has demonic eyes, would stad atop a matress and take swipes at you and try to bite you as you went by, and otherwise make the safety of anything from the knee down, in question.

I never had a evil cat. However one we found on the street was tough but nice, just be careful where you touch him when in a bad mood, gave me many a scratch when I was a kid.

Taste mostly. Far more tender than filet mignon.

Crude? I'll have you know I only serve cat with white wine. Now serving it with red would be down right barbaric.

For the record, I'm just kidding around. I love animals a great deal.

We have four cats. Each has its own personality and preferences.

One hates being stroked and will scratch you if you try. One goes into ecstasy at the slightest touch.

One is indifferent to meat. In another it inspires such glazed-eyed lust she misses the distinction between your finger and the offcut of ham you're feeding her.

One wants nothing else than for you to play with a certain piece of string with her. One wants only a certain brand of cat treats.

And just a few years ago I wasn't a cat person.

Just like humans, no cat is exactly alike.

This is the kind of cat to have: the kind that act like dogs.



I might actually go see this. A "feel-good" movie might be just the thing on Thanksgiving Day.

There's no snooze button on a cat who is ready for breakfast in the morning.

One weekend when I was sleeping late (bedside clock alarm off), my cat deliberately knocked over the clock and stared at me. I guess he thought it went off so I'd feed him. I'm not sure what Pavlov would have concluded.

Are you cat lovers also litterbox lovers? That's the thing that keeps me from getting a cat, I want nothing to do with a litterbox. Also, not a big lover of hair everywhere.

If you live in the country, or the suburbs, just make sure they get out a lot, and they should never need to use the loo indoors. None I had ever did, and I never needed a tray.

One cat I had was injured in somebody's building works, and had to be nursed back to fitness on a cushion in a tray. She was taken out once daily to a sandpit to perform. Nothing else was necessary.

It's the inbred pedigrees who cause most trouble. As regards hair, it generally doesn't happen, especially with shorthairs. The trick is to let them live a sizeable part of life outdoors, naturally.

Rory, why dont you get a mechanical cat? Or would replacing the batteries be too much effort? You know what I hate is going to the bathroom, so I've decided to stop eating and drinking. It's also not worth it to wash my clothes since they just get dirty again. I havent decided if I should stay in bed all day since I'm just going to get back in it at night, or whether I should never get in bed since I'm not in it during the day. That's a tough call.

As for William Crums advice, it's totally unrealistic for most people. Unless you have a barn cat who never comes into your home, you will always need a litter box, and you will always find cat fur unless it's a hairless cat.
