The ironic thing is that my cats' (we believe) have actual personalities. I remember I was never a cat person. Whenever I was at someone's house and they had a cat, I would think "wow, cats must be one of the most unfriendliest animals."
Not true! My mom had got me and my sisters two cats that we immediately had a taking to. They are indoors all the time, so they spend a lot of time with us. Thus, they are very responsive/physical with my family and self.
They are always rubbing against us, meowing, etc. They're fun to have. The downside is (especially with long haired cats), they leave aton of fur all over everything. It's horrible when it gets on your clothes, (especially dark clothes), it shows up.
2 black and whites that came from Ireland with us and one local moggy who we found as a week old kitten and he had really bad cat flu. He had such a bad infection that they had to remove one eye. He's fine now though, except when he forgets there's something on his blind side and turns that way.
Ive got a cat who is also half blind. He is a house cat and is so placid its beyond belief, but for some reason he really hates it when people try to put things through the letter box.
The first we ever knew about this was when I picked up a letter on our doormat only to find a small note on it from the postman asking us to keep our cat under control as he was making it impossible to deliver the mail. The note was written right next to some claw and bite marks.
I cant believe that we had to buy a new door with a higher letter box just because of our cat.
My cat is...well, a bit different. She thinks she's a dog and doesnt like other cats. My sis in law brought her cat over in a crate once when leaving on a trip, and my cat was trying to get at it the same as my dogs were.
My cat eats dog food alongside the dogs. Huge great danes, and she's not shy about letting them know to get their nose out of her way.
I can pick her up by the collar or tail, and she hangs there purring. She likes me hanging her by her tail and rubbing her tummy.
My two cats are awesome. They follow me from room to room. Sleep under my desk while I'm working. They'll steal toys from each other and then chase each other around the house. Very nice! Don't know how I ever lived without them.
That'd be nice. Mine hoard the toys; make me go and collect them all again. It does make for a good pen retrieval system. They seem to be obsessed with pens. Whenever I lose one I can be sure it'll show up under the bed in a day or two.
