I think you 'Cats all need a healthy dose of Paul Gallico's book called The Silent Miaow. I don't know if it is still in print, but you can probably find it in a library somewhere. We are all victims of feline-cajolery and Paul Gallico has seen through their wiles.

It's very funny and very true. I have had a copy of it for about 10 years but I first read it about 10 years before that. It's a must-read for people who think they are in charge of cats, or people who think it is a mutual benefit society. The whole scenario has been designed by the cat right from the start - not unlike the revelation of the lab rats in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

My little Ceramen (not celtic, latin. For earwax. Don't ask) used to hang in the cat flap, head in, arse out, waiting for some other cat to come and lick his bum.... He also had a foot fetish and would eat your toes. Shadow is a cat of very little brain, she cannot remember how the catflap works in this house, even though it is identical to the one in the previous house, that she used perfectly happily for 4 years!

ooh, how nice to hear about all these kitties!

On The Witches' Voice website (www.witchvox.com) we have a section known as "The Cats of Witchcraft" with many photos of people and their kitties...cat owners are incorrigible it seems when it comes to praising/damning their little darlings/devils...

I have five adults: Ziggy (grey and white tabby who survived being run over and a month of being unable to move his back legs!), Trivia (grey with small peach and white patches, part Siamese, part Russian Blue), her daughter Zeus (all grey; a friend named her unaware of the gender), Zeus' son Stoney (all grey), and Zeus' daughter Blackberry (all grey, whom the vet thought was male for some reason)... and at the moment there are six kittens from two litters: four all grey, two grey with peach and white patches...

if anyone lives near Boston and wants one or knows anyone who does...let me know. Otherwise I usually don't have much trouble finding homes or taking them to a very humane pet shop nearby that helps place them... peg

We once got adopted by a cat which turned out to belong to a person at the end of our road. we also have to put up with a stray ginger tom who seems to find it funny to provide our queens with someone to care for (ie mini mousers!) and the majority of our 11 ginger mousers are descended from him!

Mao-Mao adopted us about a year ago.

Unfortunately for her, she has had to go from the exhalted role of a declawed indoor-cat, to that of a lowly barn-cat, due to family allergies and a terrier with first dibs on the house, who would gladly tear her to pieces at the first opportunity.

She still protests her diminished status loudly and often, which in turn, sends the terrier into a frenzy.

Malcolm,
My Fred like your Oscar was such a terror that two vets requested I not return with him. After major surgery requiring two days on an IV at the vets office, he was returned to me within two hours. The staff was terrified of him and the other patients were disturbed. They used to tranquilize him in his carrier just to get him onto the vets table. I could manage him but it seemed to be a matter of honor for the vet to deal with it. Also, I have been told, I could sue for damages if the cat hurt me while in the examining room.
I finally found a vet with a sense of humor and we cared for Fred into old age. He broke hundreds of dollars worth of antique pottery, deliberately kicked an assortment of crystal including a lamp to the floor, left lifelong scars on my arm, but broke my heart when he decided it was time to go. Why am I always attracted to bad boys?

As every catowner knows, nobody owns a cat. ;-)

We provide logistic support for 3 Sphynxes, Splotch, Fuzzee, and, as of last week, their momma, Minnie. Sphynx is a virtually hairless breed of cat. I have been a cat person all my life. up to about 10 years ago, we had coated (furry) cats. Our son's allergist said if we didn't get rid of the cats, he'd charge us with child abuse.

We found homes for all 5 of our guys, but my wife had to put up with my whining for over 9 years about not having a cat. One day she looked up "hypoallergenic cat" and came across Sphynxes (spelled with a "y"). The rest is history. We adopted Splotch and Fuzzee in 5/99 and their mother when she was retired from breeding.

I have two.

ONe mackeral tabby and white - he's a fat bagpuss type.

Got stuck in next doors cat flap this weekend. We had to squirt his botty with water to get him to move.

He is on a diet but other people feed him too in the street.

Then there is a whipper snapper of a skinny malink. Black and white, death zone cat.

Who has turned our garden into death valley. The Wren may well turn out to be his nemisis and the bell goes on his collar.

He is the naughty one of the two. A real big cheese and local charmer in the neighbourhood.

Though at the moment much of his time is spent tormenting next doors girly cats, and the cows in the fields. As well as any passing dog, that happens to stray into his domain.

He may only be a thin scrawny thing, but coo he's a divil

Oh what can I do about him.

I have one kitty, Thumper, who is now 10 years old, and poor thing, nobody loves him, and he never gets anything to eat. NOT! The only way to describe him is, he's taupe. Not brown, not gray, but taupe. Like most kitties he likes to eat and sleep. He graciously tolerates our two medium-to-large dogs and sometimes actually plays with them.

We used to have Buddy, who was a stray that never left. He was a mighty hunter and used to bring us all sorts of surprises. (Thumper, I must say, is a housecat and has always been.) He had been somebody's pet, because he was neutered, and knew how to find all the soft comfy places in the house. Buddy lived with us for about 7 years. Unbeknownst to us, he had a heart condition, which led to a kitty heart attack/stroke, and we had to put him down two years ago. He was a great kitty and we still miss him.

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.

Polly, the tabby, who lives up the garden with the chickens,mostly. Bramble, the pet-shop cat, black, sickly, demanding, with very dubious mental health. Both are 11 years old, and the parents of Towser, a fat tortoiseshell(sp?)who just eats and sleeps. They all have alarm clocks set at 8am and 3pm when food is demanded. Bramble has just demanded food at 12 noon, so I suspect Jim has been slipping him the odd snack whilst I was away.
The dogs chase any cat that moves too fast, so they all walk REALLY slowly in the house.

Just the one cat, now, Emer, who's 8, and has only one fang, which she still manages to assassinate small creatures with.  Oscar the Cat (a year younger) finally picked a fight he couldn't win -with a car- and died a few weeks ago on the street where he was born.  He was well-known round here as friendly but dangerous (the vet certainly never took any chances!), and is much missed.  He hated violins, but nobody's perfect.

Rua, Bibi's brother, orange tabby, slightly chubby. He seems to think he's a dog. He answers to door to see who's there and loves his belly rubs.

Also 2 kittens, as yet unnamed, belonging to my daughter.

We have 2 feline overseers here. One is mine, well, I am her foster-human, and the other is my hubby's. After nearly a year of married life our 2 cats are finally able to be in the same room together and sometimes on the same couch as long as there is a lap under each of them.

Mine is a blimpy ginger short-hair female, about 12 years old and his is a tabby shorthair female, very tiny for her 14 years.

I decided years ago that any boyfriend/partner I had would have to be a cat person or it just wasn't going to work out. Hubby is totally devoted to his cats, past and present, so I've done good.

Sounds like the Mudcat is a veritable cat paradise! I share my flat with Fluff (or Fussel, in German) - black, with a white belly and some white tips - paws, nose, tail - and a huge ego. He came to me as a 7-week-old kitten because someone else was allergic to cats. Luckily, he can go on the prowl without much danger of him turning into 'Nobody's Moggy'. I only hope he never goes too near the motorway ... (which is a good way off). I'm trying to get him to pose for a photo of both of us for the Mudcat collection.
Up till 3 1/2 years ago I had Puss, a huge tabby who developed diabetes when he was eight. Between us, we kept him alive for five and a half years. He was a great fighter (and I don't mean other cats!), and very independent - not the cuddly sort at all. He'll always be 'my' cat.
Lovely non-musical thread. Thanks for starting it, Firecat!- Susanne

Homey Darlin', rescued from the garden as a tiny kitten, weighs in a 27#. He is a huge cat but a lamb. People who see him for the first time are terrified and usually ask "Does he bite?" He has huge eyes which either frighten or annoy people - he stares and an abnormally long tail. He suffers from depression and at times has to be hand fed. The vet asks "How do you put up with him?" He's my baby.

Ed the Runt. Small but feisty and fat. He is a tuxedo cat who looks like the day after a raucous wedding. His tuxedo is askew. He refuses to use the catbox and occasionally pees on guests if he doesn't like them.

Lizzie, atiny white kitten with two egg shaped black spots who was rescued from La Guardia airport on a rainy night when she ran under a cab. The driver wasn't sure what he had seen, pulled her out from under the car, and brought her to me at work. She is "dumber than a doorknob", has been rescued by the super several times when she accidentally closes the window behind her and gets stuck between the screen and the window.She was completely silent for two months until one day I heard her screaming and came on the run expecting the worse. She was sitting under a dresser, facing the corner of the room and crying. No reason. She amuses herself that way.

I am down from six. Old age and cancer took three over the past two years. My vet knows to call me with adult cats. Thay live out their last years in luxury, spoiled and cherished. I should be so lucky.

My white cat came to me through the good offices of my SO who found her, a bedraggled, fleabitten and very sick kitten, under her car in the church parking lot. She took her to the vets and then brought her home. The SO named her Unity but since then the cat has accumulated a series of names including Ratbrat, White Cat, Destructo the White Tornado, and SSSSSS! (That's a hiss) I don't think she's ever heard the name Unity except at the vet's. Her most common name is White Cat.

When my SO decided last February that it was time to go off with someone else she left the White Cat behind. The Ratbrat was my buddy through some pretty tough months. Now that I'm back in that same boat I am depending on her again. And she's coming through with flying colors.

She is full of energy and runs through the house when I get home, racing from room to room. She loves to play with string and toys but only tolerates being petted by me. She will not sit with or on anyone but she stays in the room with you because she doesn't like to be left alone.

We're not allowed to keep cats in our building but some tenants have crabs (hyuck, hyuck).

bIt more than that, Sorcha, let's see there's...in order of age, Heyokah-my Siamese male loves only ME; Kelpie - solid tube of black shot through with brilliant gold who will bite if you look at her wrong..she's like a small tank...solid; The Beige Brothers: Charlee and Kazell, who are, well...beige and identical except the rings on their tails start out opposite in colours; Ms. Lovee, a snowshoe Siamese, whose picture may be seen by clicking here; and, then there is baby Trystan, who is sitting on my lap telling me to stop typing and go to bed. He is on my head in my photo on the Mudcat Resources page, but he is a LOT bigger now! More later, as I really AM being sent to bed!**BG**

OOOOOhhhh, OOOOh LOL!! kat sent me this cartoon last week:
dark bedroom with 2 two leggeds and (1? only 1?) cat on the bed, caption said---"It's 3AM, you may pet me now". I told her didn't remind me of anybody I know, there were not enough critters on the bed........What are we, Saps, or what? My bed usually contains 2 corgis, 2 or 3 cats, 1 husband sometimes, and, if there is room, me........

kat/katlaughing has at least 4, Wincing Devil has Sphinxes, LOTS of us are owned by cats. Thank Gods it is not catFISH---I draw the line at fish in my bed.

ol'troll, you're lucky they sleep at the foot! Bones insists on being between my ankles - no matter what position I'm in. And Jack sprawls in the middle (top-to-bottom-wise) of the other side of the bed.

Of course the foot of the other side is taken up by the elderly Bassett hound that started living with us a year ago. Fortunately, the Lab/Dane prefers to sleep in the living room, but if he's feeling lonely, he's in there, too. He's about the same size as my ex-husband, but I think he takes up more room.

Anybody wonder why I'm on the computer instead of in bed? ;-) THERE'S NO ROOM!!!!

We have two.Smokey,a football-shaped grey is partial to my Wife.(He will have nothing to do with me except at mealtime). Orry, a yellow Manx, is mine;at least mine is the lap he can most often be found on and I am the one he bites (yes, BITES) the least.He doesn't like to be messed with. I'm the only one who dares try to pet him if he hasn't indicated-via head butts-that he wants attention. Both are quite vocal and will not use the cat door if there is a human around to open the regular one.

They both sleep on the foot of the bed. Wife and I sort of scrunch together in the middle.

Ha ha! We always say that, Fiyuhcat! "Who's turn is it to clean the cat box?" and the response is "It's Boo's turn!"

Good bye never gets easier, no matter how many legs they have or don't have. I will not stop having friends or pets just because they die. We currently have 4--Amos Moses (M'Bro)all black, well he used to be, grey now and just a little sloooow. Gretchen the Spook Cat from Hell with xtra toes, a tuxedo and an ATTITUDE! Yentl, because she is such a yentl, and Millie, the paranoid schizo that lives upstairs in her own bedroom. Yentl is a mackeral tabby, and Millie is a Holstien Cat.

The house I'm allowed to live in belongs to a 14 month old tortoishell called Moggins. She lets me live here in exchange for food - quite a civilized arrangement.

She's never lived anywhere else - her mother was one of my daughter's cats, but they all moved out last November.

My baby deserted me! And she's only 23! Still, I'm going to be a grandad in March...
