I 'll Always Need a Cat

    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'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've had them most of my life,

    starting with Miles Standish as a kid and ending most recently with the untimely disappearance of Norbert and the age-related passing of my last childhood pet, Grey Kitty, whose absences left a frost that continues to burn. It sucks losing them. It sucks losing all pets, of...

    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 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 are just another world They have the

    ability to... - Get cat hair everywhere - They look at you in disgust - Hit you for attention - Sit on your laptop - Be king or queen of your life - Come to you when they need you (when they are hungry)

    I named my kitten Boaz.

    I love how playful he is. He's also very independent, which is the thing with cats, of course.

    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

    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?

    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...

    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 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.
