I Love Cats

    For those of you who have cats,

    do you have one that is an overgrown child, emotionally needy and clingy that also wants to be picked up and held? If so, does he/she like to flop their belly on your shoulder and dangle down your back?

    I have a cat who can always sense

    when I'm not feeling well, and she'll curl up in my lap and purr. She cuddles with me whenever I have trouble sleeping. I wish I had some way of telling her how much she helps me. She loves me unconditionally, never judges me. She's helped me deal with so much anxiety and stress...

    I think I'm allergic to them.

    But I don't care. I still pet them, how do you walk past a kitty and not show it some love??

    I love this little muffin cutie she feeds me

    and I could cuddle her all day. She has really nice sweaters and when she leaves them out I knead them. I love to purr and cuddle her neck because she is warm and smells like flowers but her nose is really dry. - kitty

    I Have 5 of My Own

    I live in a suburban neighborhood and I am sure it is a dumping ground for unwanted kitties. All 5 I have now were strays and I can tell a couple of them had belonged to someone. My special angel is a little red guy who I found living in the bushes between my house and my...

    My cat Esther loves to cuddle.

    Especially at night, while I'm sleeping and if I don't pet her because I'm asleep she will attempt to wake me with her claws. I'm wounded often. LOL

    I pretty much love all cats - except my own.

    No idea why but I don't like her and she doesn't like me. She hisses and stares all the time and we just generally don't get on. Maybe I did something to her when I was a baby and ever since then we've hated each other - who knows! But tbh I didn't think cats held grudges!

    When I was young, my sister adopted an orange

    kitten from the neighbors across the street who she named Muffin. At first I didn't pay much attention to her ( not my sister, the kitten ) because I was a boy and boys like me have dogs. I had already had two dogs by then. Soon her playful antics were getting the better of me...

    The Stray That Changed Me

    I am in my late twenties and never really cared for cats. I thought they were annoying and moody and never thought of owning one. One day I found a stray and brought her home because I felt bad and thought about trying to get her adopted. She was full of fleas and famine. I...

    This is a lovely story

    that just made me feel all warm and fuzzy and unicorn-y inside. A cat found frozen solid after spending hours in the cold lost, actually lived through it all enough to be re-united with its owners. It leaves a warm awwww feeling: https://www.thedodo.com/-frozen-miracle-cat...

    And always end up naming them

    after comic book characters. Names past and present include Rocket Racoon, Nova, Drax, Gambit, Thor, & Venom. Currently own two black and white cats along with a solid black. Have a weird preference towards black and white cats.
