    Furry Solace

     A couple husbands have come and gone, but the cats always stay *grins and shakes head*  I am older now, kids grown and gone and my remaining 21 year old Persian is the love of my life.  I'm in medicine and it is a proven fact that pets lower blood pressure, at the...

    My Cats

     I can't live without a cat in my life. There were periods when I didn't have one and even though I had a husband I felt an emptiness without my furry friend. They are truly enjoyable, they look nice, are gentle animals, smell nice, and give you love. I hate it when I see...

    I'll Always Need A Cat

    I've always loved cats, gotten along well with them, and most always have had at least one in my life.  And although they can be a pain at times, they always do something everyday to make me laugh or smile.  The past few years have been very rough and dark for me; and I...

    I was never really a "dog person" i mean i like

    dogs but cats have a special place in my heart. I've had the one for over 10 years. I know it will kill me (not literally of course) when he passes. My other cat I've raised since he was a kitten! I have dogs too and I love them but it really isn't the same.

    My Kitteh Brats

    I love my kitteh brats. Junior is solid black. I adopted him when he was about 7 weeks old. He's now almost 6 years old. My neighbor and I "share" him, as I think, he thinks of my neighbors apartment as his 'bachelor pad' (my neighbor is also a bachelor...) Then there is...

    Cats!

    When I was very young I really liked dogs, and thought this meant that I couldn't like cats too. Boy, was I wrong! I've had cats now for over forty years, and only once have I had only one cat--my first cat, who came to me as a sickly kitten about three weeks old. Six months...

    I think I will always need a cat.

    I have always had a kitten/kitty/cat, I am somewhat in love with them. They bring me so much joy. I love having a cat, I don't think I can ever live anywhere where I am not permitted to have a cat. I'm glad daddy likes kittens too :D

    Even though I now own a English Bull Terrier

    puppy, I still feel as if I should have a cat. I did have a cat at one point, but she is unfortunately gone now. She really was a cuddly thing, she hardly ever attacked or hissed at me. My pup is just always too hyper for cuddles!!

    I got my first cat when I was only 4 years old,

    and she was the sweetest but shyest thing ever. We named her Lacy and my entire family loved her to death. She clawed the furniture, meowed at random hours of the night and did all the other annoying cat things, but whenever I was lonely or sick she would cuddle up next to me...

    I have lived with cats all my life

    My Cuddly Cat :)

    I absolutely love my cat Princess Tiger Lilly :) she is so cute and has a nice fluffy tale. When ever you pick her up, her arms flail out to the side and if you pull her close, she hugs you! :D I've never seen another cat do it before. Does anyone else have a cat that hugs?
