I've been away from AW for a long while, and so a bunch of the people I used to chat with here are gone. It seems like I don't really know anyone from this new crowd, although some of the handles ring a bell. Anyway, the point is this: even though I am completely unfamiliar with the basic demographics of this current group, I propose and postulate that at least 60% of the members of this forum own cats.

(But you can't own a cat! You are right. 60% of the member of this forum are allowed to service a cat's basic needs while it chooses to make residence in their home).

Edit: I just realized that I could have created a poll! But now that I'm back in edit mode, I have no idea how to do that.

The count in my house is 4 dogs (1 is mine) and 2 cats (1 is mine). We're both writers.

Dogs are okay. They make great pillows. You can test out your latest martial arts moves on dogs, too. Plus, sometimes they help clean the litter box, but for some reason they're not supposed to do that.

One dog two cats. Almost had only one cat- so glad we have two!

We have 3 kids, and we rescued a puppy from a local shelter, and I wanted a kitten for the kids too.

I went to rescue a kitten from a shelter, but went alone without hubby- a mistake he sometimes regrets :) I saw 2 adorable kitten sisters, and the nice lady let me hold both of them. How could I choose? After all, we do have 3 kids, so 3 pets... Called hubby, he thought hmm $200 instead of $100 no way. Guess what? She said they were 2 for the price of one. I also said I would handle the litter box, since he was a dog person, not really a cat person. I sent him pics then, and he knew my heart couldn't leave without them both (the price save was just a nice bonus).

After a few months, he got to take over the litter box. I am very happy with that arrangement. Sneaking around, hoping he forgets I promised I would do it...

T Robinson - haha ours will type walking across our keyboards too.

Kylabelle- eww that reminds me. For the longest time, we had to put up a baby gate where the litter box was, so the kittens could climb there but our puppy would stop trying to get to the litter box and uh, feast :tmi... I know. Finally she stopped trying to get through. It is like an invisible gate now- she never enters the area, even though the gate is down. Whew! Ok is there any credit for grossest comment of the day? :)

Haggis- our doggie still rules the place, or at least that is what the cats let her think...

Two cats. One is very stupid, the other one is fat with stumpy legs and a crooked tail. They are sisters. We think they're inbred.

as they say Dogs have owners, cats have staff...
My two (one elderly old lady, the other a young punk) have a staff of one crazy lady, one insane man and two small grubby all to be avoided things.. but they love us and occasionally allow us to stroke them as a reward for feeding them.

Never used to love cats then we had one temporarily - which became permanent till he had a fight with a car. Then I missed him and ended up with two more cats who also lost a fight with a car- we moved away from anything car related and the punk and the old lady are loving being safe.

It's probably a blessing our townhouse complex allows no pets. No cows, no chickens, no dogs, no cats, no rodents, no birds, no snakes, no goldfish. However, if you like spiders, you can have as many as you want. :D

The blessing is I live with a lady who likes dogs, and I've always been a cat person--used to raise Siamese.

When my brother and his wife (two huge dogs, one yappy little dog, two cats--all spoiled) recently visited, they were aghast I didn't sneak in at least one cat, despite the rules, as I used to have a hearing-ear cat.

Who needs one when you have a hearing-ear significant other?

The only difference between cats and dogs is that cats like to pretend they aren't clingy and needy. No, no, it's a coincidence that they're in the same room as you most of the time. They're only sitting there for the warmth. The pathetic mewing when they can't find you is because they're worried there'll be no food. No, no they don't love and need you at all, stupid human... where are you going no don't leave don't go mroooooow mroooooooow mrooooooow

I adore cats, that's no secret. But, I also love dogs too. We had a shepherd-collie mix that passed away in 2011, and he was an awesome dog. He'd let Amber sleep on top of him or they'd chase each other around the house - when my son wasn't playing with him that is.

A close friend of mine has two Pembroke Welsh Corgis, and they're wonderful boys. She's into photography, and will be taking photos of me for my author's page, etc., and asked me if I want to have one of the boys in a few of the photos with me. Since I think corgis are awesome, I said yes. The one that will be with me is a fluffy red and white teddy bear, so I'm going to be in cuteness overload that day. :D

Cats got the evolutionary memo that they are not tigers. The dog was lucky it wasn't trampled or kicked under a car.
Besides, he/she probably does the same with the mailman. ;)

On a serious note, yes, dogs are more devoted and useful to their humans.
But I love cats unconditionally! :D

I like their independence (aka easier to maintain :tongue), they are cleaner (even if that involves dried cat saliva, but at least they don't have bad breath), the fur is softer, they're agile and elegant, and use their paws almost like hands.

On a serious note, yes, dogs are more devoted and useful to their humans.



Not according to this!

I have various pets, and usually they're underfoot.

*peeks around and under*

Apparently they're all off in the non-existent mod coffee shop and lounge!

I had one who died a few years ago, old age. Poor baby. That was the smartest cat I ever met. He did not like some of the food the vet gave me for him, he took it from his food dish and buried it in his litter box. LOL

Another time, I was in my office, heard my keys hit the floor and heard them being dragged. I knew my cat had them. I came into the kitchen to rescue my keys. My cat had dragged them off the table to my locked back door, and was holding the keys to the door. :Jaw:

And yes, he was very chatty.

We have a cat but the only time it comes near me is when I eat chicken. Then I cant get rid of the thing. The only other time I get to touch it is when I have to fix it up when it comes in all mangled from fighting the other cats in the street.
I don't understand why it gets in so many fights cos we had him fixed by the vet if you know what I mean.
What is funny is seeing it use the pedestrian crossing outside my front door. Surprising the number of cars that actually stop for it to cross the road.

*adds Chase to list* You know, every time, from now on, when I hear people speak evil about dogs, I'm gonna quote Mr Flibble's cat post (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8932222&postcount=36). Life doesn't get much better than that.

Not evil, but against a Harley-Davidson motorcycle this is one badass chihuey (http://county10.com/2014/06/10/chihuahua-chases-wrecks-harley-davidson-motorcycle-riverton/).

I have 4 cats. These two are my favorites: Tadpole (a.k.a. Mr. Scoopy Pants) and Catbat (a.k.a. Captain Cling-On; don't ask me to explain).

http://polishcat.com/finder/scoopy.jpg http://polishcat.com/finder/catbat.jpg

The other two (Luna & Archibald) were born with a rare congenital defect that makes them look and sound very odd. I also had a tough time getting them to use the litter pan, so I gave up and just let them go outside. Please don't judge them by their looks: they may not be the prettiest cats in the world, but they still deserve love and affection. To avoid disturbing anyone who wants to avoid them, I'll leave some space before I post the pics...

















http://polishcat.com/finder/luna.jpg http://polishcat.com/finder/archibald.jpg

If anyone knows what this defect is called, please let me know. I can only hope that someday a cure will be found. ;)

But when a cat sits in the dog's bed he sits and goes "bambi sad eyes" cos he dare not get into his own bed. Also he dare not sniff their dead prey. Or he will die

he knows his place

Bottom of the pile, under the cats.

ETA Although I swear to dog he laughs when one of them tries to get up onto the counter for dinner and doesn't make it. But he laughs quietly, for fear of retribution
