    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.

    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...

    Got two black and white tabbies.

    .. I relate more to cats actually, they have an attitude that is "I don't give a ****" and honestly that's how I feel anymore and it like it!! 😊. Cats don't care about feelings and other **** like that, just what they want to do in the moment...

    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...

    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 love cats and have only had one at a time

    each has been from a shelter. My current cat was from the ASPCA and I think that makes the last of bigger shelters here in the New York area.

    My Cat.

     Chased birds for 4 hours straight this morning in my window while I attempted to sleep. It would have been cute if I actually gone to bed before 6am but I didn't. All I could see was a little Siamese head bobbing up and down and on occasion a cat fly up the window...

    Sarah And My Wife The Dog Lover.

    I had a very real dream about my cat last night,

    that for some reason she had gone to another home, but I was in despair, and had to go and get her back. I got her back, and gave her the biggest cuddles. I woke up and felt excited to have her back, then realised she died over a year ago. My love for her has not faded. <3

    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.

    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...

    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

    We adopted a four-month-old puppy Saturday

    and when we put him in his crate at night he whines and keeps us all awake. We put him in the same room as our other dog's kennel tonight, hoping seeing him would help the puppy calm down. He's not whining quite as much as he has been, but it's probably still gonna be tough to...

    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.

    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 ^.^
