    I've always had cats,

    ever since I was like, 6 months old. People say they are aloof and distant, but its so not true. They are not your subject to be controlled, that's true, but they can be very loving and personable.

    In A Manner Of Speaking, I Suppose I Do

    I’m a dog person by nature, and always have been. Despite that (or maybe because of it), felines apparently have a strange attraction to me and there always seems to be one around. I’ve never actually “owned” a cat; never gone and picked one out and brought it home. No...

    Well I had a cat. His name was Biggie Mac.

    He was a stray found at McDonald's one day and we took him in. At first we had to force him to stay out till we got him fix, but we made sure he had a bed out on the porch and his food and water bowls were always full. We got him fixed within a few weeks. This was during the...

    Salem, The Black Cat

    I have a beautiful, mystical, black cat. He is sleek and shiny. I found him when he was two days old on Craigslist. When he was eight weeks old, he came to live with us, that was last Sept 12th. He is a truly loving cat that has a serene personality most of the time. He is not...

    My cat is so fat. He weighs 18lbs!

    He is black and when he was little he used to sneak around in the dark and bite your ankles and toes when you least expected it. So glad he has calmed down! :)

    As anyone who has cats knows,

    life with a cat is really a long, drawn out war with many, many skirmishes. In the ongoing campaign against Echo, my cat, there were two skirmishes this morning. And the result of the morning's kitty skirmishes: Echo 2, Humans 0. The first skirmish was a physical...

    A male black cat and a female brown cat. I couldn’t really care about their name’s because I’m bad at giving name’s, so I just named them with whatever popped randomly into my head first. The black one was named Meowth, and the brown one was named Kitkat. Now, I’m...

    A Great Friend

    This boy is four years old and he is a very special friend of mine. I have been around lots of cats over the years but this one is special. He senses my moods and responds accordingly. Always there for me. I'm lucky that Jake considers me a friend and shares his life with me.

    I love my kitten. Well,

    he's more like a small cat. His name is Kodiak. Also known as Kody or Kodak. I'm not sure what breed he is, but we're suspecting he's part Ragdoll, part tomcat. He's fearless and rugged at times, but at other times he will go limp in my arms and cuddle for hours. He will smack a...

    I've had them ever since I was a baby, and I always loved them. Currently, I have a massive orange and white cat named Ginger. He is practically as big as me, (considering I'm pretty small), he is so lovable and he's always there for me. He can recognize my voice and he knows a...

    I Never Thought I'd Love Cats!

    Many years ago, if you had told me that I would like cats, I would've told you you were crazy. Then, my daughter brought home a kitten. We had an enormous fight about it because we had just lost my ex's dog and I didn't want any pets. Because of this and other issues at the time...

    I've had several, but unfortunately my last

    three ones died. I can't go over the details because with the first one (Nico) the death was particularly saddening as it was the result of kidney failure. The current cat in the house is Casie and she likes exploring the house and playing around.
