I Am a Cat Person

    My family had various cats

    as I grew up, but since I've been on my own, I haven't had the money to get one. The ongoing costs are just not something I can add to my budget right now.

    My Darling Lucy Had a Tail Amputation.

    Recently she had a little less than half of her tail amputated. She came home in the morning and I discovered that some of the flesh near the end of her tail had been torn off! There was still a small tuft left at the tip, like this: ===--> We took her to the vet and he...

    I could spend hours watching cat videos online.

    Surprisingly this helps lower my anxiety and makes me feel calm.

    Always Have Been Always Will Be

    I love cats more than anything. I will always have one. They are the best animals ever. They're just so cute and so loyal you really can develop a connection with a cat. They don't cause a lot of problems, they are just quiet and there when you need them.

    I've grown up with cats around the house

    and I feel more comfortable around them than other animals. I don't mind dogs as we currently live with one (until we move in the New Year). They are a lot calmer and I like having a cat on my lap in times of stress.

    I've always been hopelessly without restraint

    any time a cute kitten presented itself to me. Cute little meows, fuzzy bundles of poof, funny dispositions....always topped off with the sweetest purrs, reassuring you of love and contentment. As a child, I was constantly sneaking kittens home. Living out in the country in an...

    Still miss our lovely tabby.

    He was a keen climber - often got into scrapes. One late summer evening he disappeared. Eventually we spotted him at the apex of the gable of the house being built next door - no roof on yet. A cat shape silhouetted against the almost dark sky. We knew it could be no other...

    Purr-Fect

    Since being little, I've lived with a cat/cats. Love their personalities, their loyalty and their cuddles. My two are called Spotty and Sparkle. Ones a boy, the other's a girl, and their healthy and happy. Couldn't be without them.

    The Truth About Cats And Dogs

    I think personality types can be divided into canine and feline. Not just in what type of pet you prefer but the qualities of the animal themselves. I am a definite cat. I am lazy, I love to be petted, and if you make me happy I will purr for you. Perhaps because I relate to...

    For years I had always said I was a dog person

    when I had been asked but after (slightly recently) I had lived with both, I know now that I prefer cats. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE dogs but cats are just my favourite :D

    I Like It When My Cat Gets Into Mischief.

    Because EVERY SINGLE TIME its hilarious, walking on the dog when he is sleeping, sleeping in plants, meowing all over the place, mimicking the birds, nomming my skin when I am sleeping, I know that because when I wake up I see claw marks all over my skin. I love that cat.

    I'm a cat person all the way! I love all animals including dogs but they just can't compare to kitties, cats are much cleaner and defiantly much cuter. Scottish fold and munchkin kitties are the best. SOOOO cute. Nyannn ^.^
