    Feel free to share pictures or stories of your pets in this thread, if you like. I think especially @wayneh will enjoy having a look.

    *****

    This is the story of Luca, who was one of 4 kittens born in my backyard a little over 2 years ago.

    Cat 01.JPG


    Luca was abandoned by his feral mother, taking with her the other three kittens, since he was a late bloomer that couldn't walk nor open his eyes when his other siblings could.

    So we adopted him, and fed him.

    He couldn't open both eyes at first.

    Cat 03.JPG


    And was so small that he could fit in a glove

    Cat 04.JPG


    But soon he was able to open his other eye and roam the place...

    Cat 05.JPG


    He definitely didn't like his first bath...

    Cat 06.JPG


    But he knew how to have fun, like going treasure hunting...

    Cat 07.JPG


    Or playing Xbox games.

    Cat 08.JPG


    And he finally grew up to be a big, fat, lazy, irresponsible, but happy charm of a cat...

    That grey kitteh has a good camouflage suit!

    I used to have a wife, and she wanted show dogs so she could feel prestigious. This is my favorite of the bunch. She was so cooperative that I could literally fence her in with a piece of chalk! All I had to do was draw a line on the floor, point to it and say, "No!". She wouldn't cross that line until I wiped it off. Very handy when I was repairing the back door. :)

    my adorable canine, as soft and docile as they come unless he thinks we are being threatened when he becomes a Guard-dog - unfortunately a cuddle counts as threatening behavior in his books, as for giving the grandkids a tickle - forget it.

    Like any good parent, I have lots of photos of my furry children. I'll dig through and find the favorites. Here's a start.

    Meet FuzzMo. I chose FuzzMo as a kitten from a litter. The owner said he was the only boy and I liked his looks better than his sisters. When it came time for him to be neutered, the vet informed me that he was a she and wrote up the bill as a free sex change! I had never thought twice to question what the owner had told me. Lesson learned.

    She's in the tree because she was evading a fox. Smart cat.

    Catnip time! The big tabby is Porky, aka Pork Chop. He's ~15 and was a stray that claimed us. He has the attitude of gratitude and may be the best cat I've ever met.

    First of all, rednecks are just as much animal lovers as any other ill-named group of people. The peoplr in the pickup truck were just plain evil, cold hearted bast ards. Arbitrary and derogatory names for groups of people are never indicative of behaviours, excepting perhaps those who perpetuate the stereotypes themselves :)

    This is Baker. So named because he was found at a Baker Hughes facility, starving and covered in oil and metal shavings. Coolest, chill in est cat I have ever met

    I'm most definitely a cat person... don't get me wrong, I like dogs and other pets. But cats are cleaner than most, and they come in a range of extremely different personalities, all the way from cuddling to obnoxious and to rough players... And what's best about them: they don't bark.
    I Just hope I don't get crucified by the dog people in this forum :confused:

    They kill birds whenever they can, and they make faces at them when they see them on the roof.

    That's true. Feral cats have become a pest in some places, and destroy the local fauna, like birds and squirrels. But my cat is an indoors cat, so much that he's become a little agoraphobic. He doesn't like to go outside too much.

    Here is a bittersweet pet story.

    It was late in the evening and we received a phone call from a neighbor. She thought that our cat had been hit by a car and was lying in the middle of the street. My wife and I ran out to see the sad sight. It was our cat and he wasn't moving. She ran back in the house and grabbed a box, which I used to drive him to the vets Unfortunately, the vet said he had passed, so tearfully I arranged for a cremation and burial at a local pet cemetery.

    The next morning, a little foggy due to sleeping poorly, I was making a cup of coffee, when OUR CAT BRUSHED ACROSS MY LEGS! He was alive! I screamed and the rest of the family came running down, hugging the poor, clueless cat. I don't know whose pet I buried, but at least we know he is resting peacefully in the pet cemetery.

    True, you don't have to wash a cat, but the obnoxious dog behavior stems from people that don't know how to deal with dogs. They can be taught not bark incessantly or "defend" against every person that walks by. It took me 14 months to get that bichon to bark, and she only did that because she had her first litter, and so became protective. The only thing I have taught a cat to do was respond to the sound of a can opener. :D

    Ever listen to Car Talk? One of the most popular episodes was about Max and the Schnauzer. It's worth a listen.

    And birds eat spiders, and make faces at them when they see them in takao21203's window sill.

    We have doves here which sometimes rest on window sills when it rains or just giggle around even make noises, as well seagulls (mostly interested in rubbish bins). They dont see the spiders inside.
