Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Everyone in my family has at least one feline sharing their abode. Sometimes it feels as if cats own you, but they really just allow you to share a place...as long as you pay the rent or the mortgate. Unlike dogs, they are not out to please anyone but themselves, and living with you is something they choose to do, or not.

I have one feline roommate at the moment. Grania is a combo Egyptian Mau and Domestic Shorthair. She is 3 1/2 years old and fairly large. Besides her own food and treats, she loves certain types of fruit...nectarines, pears, apples...and bananas are her favorite. She's very loving to me, but is extremely shy of other humans and animals. Grania seems to have definite interior decoration tastes. Usually in the middle of the night, she begins to jump up, trying to grab posters and pictures off the wall. Believe me, the sound of her claws scraping down the walls at 3:00 AM is NOT a pleasant way to be roused from sleep. Guess she could tell you about some pretty peculiar traits of mine too...

I live in the country, and across the road are several of what look like 6-month old kittens. They are all adorable, but for the most part, they won't come near you. One of the nearby neighbors feeds them. I'd love to take in one or two, but I doubt that Grania would approve.
