I Have a Cat

    When I was a little kid,

    I had a weird obsession with space, so to go along with my dog named Jupiter, I got a cat and named him Mars. He used to be playful, but he's mellowed down a lot with age. Most of the time he just curls up on the couch and meows at passers-by.

    My cat's name is Butt-Butt

    and after being diagnosed with depression she has been the one I decided to cuddle with and hold for hours. She is the sweetest little thing and I love her more than I love myself. Although I have allergies I have learned to control them because she's my everything and I can't...

    An Older Gentleman

    My cat is a ginger tom called Picasso. He's already 17 years old but I hope he will be around for a couple of more years, since he's really important and dear to me. He's suffering from hyperthyroidism, so he needs to get his medicine twice a day - fortunately the meds can be...

    Ooops

    I didn't intend to get a cat, it was a accident. The people that live across the street from me moved out and just left it. It's just a kitten, can't be more than 4 months old. She is solid black and just as sweet as she can be. I named her Miss Afray. I don't know where the name...

    I rescued my kitty from the Humane Society.

    She's really mouthy but she loves sitting on my lap and purring. She sits behind me on the couch sometimes and licks my hair. It's kind of funny. I'm glad they had such wonderful animals available for adoption at the pound.

    I have and had many cats in my lifetime.

    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...

    You may have heard that black cats are bad luck,

    and watching them cross your path will curse you for sure, but you haven't seen my cat. His name is Spock, and he is simultaneously the sweetest and most infuriating cat you'll ever meet. His sleek black fur is slightly ruffled as he slides along the wall of my bedroom, hoping...

    My cat is honestly like my child,

    I take care of her better then I take care of myself; I spoil the hell out of her and I take her on walks in the boardwalk but usually she just sits on my shoulder while I do the walking, people do take pictures of me when I do it and sometimes they will want to take picture...

    that we got a little over a year ago. We went to a shelter with two other cats in mind that we looked at on the shelter web site. We went there, and one of the cats we had thought of hissed at us, and the other scratched. We went over to Princess, and she rolled onto her back so...

    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...

    You know when your cats love you

    when you're walking around the house, quietly, in the morning, and they hear you, run from their sleeping space, still half sleep,just to say hello in their morning meow. :3

    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...

    My cat is sick today.

    It's interesting, how a person can become so attached to an animal. They became a part of your family, a part of you, and the mere threat of losing that beloved one is a painful experience. I've only had him for three years, and I know I can't have him forever, but to just...

    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...

    Walking the cat in a kilt.

    We went to a ceilidh on holiday and when we came back, the cat was at the door giving us a paw to ask for walkies. Unfortunately, we had forgotten her lead, so I used the strap from my sporran instead. Any other kilted catwalkers out there??

    Skinny Minny - RIP

    So today, literally in the space of like 4 hours, my cat went from being healthy to dead. I can only guess she had some kind of stroke. She was 14 and was called "Skinny cat" or "skinny me" or "skinny minny" - unlike her portly rotund twin (who is perfectly alive as I type) whom...

    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.
