    Oh, Dear Cat Of Mine…

    My cat keeps meowing at me and won't stop. Yes she has food, yes she has a clean box. I think she just wants an enormous amount of attention since she's pretty old. She sits next to me all the time and will watch me when I'm making something to eat.

    I treat my 3 cats like they're children.

    they get told off when they're naughty and one has to go into time out, in my spare room, when he is out of control. He was aching to bash my elderly cat and even when I sprayed him with water he still came after her.so he went to the naughty room for 10 minutes so he could calm...

    All of my life, I have always attracted cats in

    my life and I love it. Whenever somebody has an issue with their cat, they call me up and be their cat whisperer. My grandmother's cat isn't a very vocal or loving cat per say, but whenever I am around, she does a complete 180. She'll perk up and meow at you; give you little...

    Mostly only to tell him 2 get out of the doorway

    or from under my feet, but I also ask him 'does he wan2 go out' & 'is he hungry' but he just won't answer. Maybe the cat got his tongue.....

    All Of Them

    Why not. They are not dumb (stupid). So there is no point being dumb (mute) around them. I tell Kitty that I will be right back with a can of food or I tell Princess she's a good girl when she covers the present she left in the litter box. No, it's not like I'm talking to myself...

    Every morning I call my cat name.

    I even go up to my cat and make crazy loud noise. She pull her ears back. I even sometimes talk to her. I know she won't talk back. In cat mines I wonder what they really think???

    We talk most days. Just

    Good Little Listeners

    Some people say cats dont show empathy, but my cats are always there for me when I need them. I think they can just tell when I need a little cheering up, and they truly are the most patient listeners. :]

    My Cat Helps Me Through A Tough Day

    Whenever I don't know who else to turn to, I'll talk to my cat Callie. My "baby girl" really does calm me when the waterworks start up. I can't explain it, but she just knows when I'm upset, and she'll lay on her side and start purring. I usually will lay my head lightly ontop of...
