    Cats, I Have 5

    someone always wants to talk, or needs talking too. The occasional argument that needs settled, dog in the yard, hey, somebody's at the door.  With two Siamese, they need a lot of talking, they get rough with the others if you don't, and if you yell at them, they yell back...

    So Inane

    I'm always telling my cats how pretty they are.  To the male I say, constantly,  "You're my little man!"  I'm sure they hear compliments dozens of times a day.  "Come eat your treats!  Are you hungry?  Don't you want your treats?"  And, of...

    It's More Like We Talk To Each Other..

    Both our cats are very vocal. They'll just sit there and make small meowing sounds almost like they're enjoying a full conversation with us. It's awesome!!

    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.

    He Says I'm Crazy.

    I said to him "I can't believe I'm talking to a cat." He said "How do you think I feel? I've got a delusional human being nattering at me all day."

    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...

    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...

    I have a very sweet little gray kitten named Kitty. Kitty is sweet sometimes, but others it's like he wants to kill you. One day I was just walking across the room, and Kitty just bounded out of nowhere and streaked across the floor, tripping me. I yelled, " You evil little...
