just like mine . . .
And mine haven't improved as they've grown older!
I'm still missing part of my scope mounts. I had the mounts sitting there on the table, screwed together so I wouldn't loose the screws. Somehow the cats managed to unscrew it and make off with part of the mount. This was a month ago lol.
Cats are tyrants, dogs are citizens. Dogs will defend your territory as if it is their own (because it is). Dogs will be loyal to everyone within the family, because it is their family - they're a part of it. Cats do none of these things. The only loyalty cats seem to have is to feeding time. They've more affinity with welfare queens than with citizens.
That said, I do love our kitty. When she dies, however (and possibly before), we're getting a dog.
You can now surgically remove the cat's bladder without breaking the whole animal permanently? Interesting.
Most of the time when an animal goes outside of the areas it's suppsoed to (outside or liter box) it is normally for three distinct reasons. They aren't housebroken, they are ill or mad, or they are advertising/marking. The first one is obvious, and the second is due to certian health problems or being ticked off. The last I find to be the most common, a male animal will often times mark its territory to both keep other males away and to advertise to females that there is a strong male in the area. Less known is females will do this for the same reason, they will urinate near a male or in a place they know a male will come across it in order to advertise their status. My cats did it often when they were in heat before I had the money to fix them and is very common. If you have male cats they will often do it in places the male animal frequents, and if there are none human males will have to do lol.
So, cats are liberals, consumed in self-interest?
I haven't seen the cat in a couple of days."
Hattie (the one I referred to) is only 3 years old. It's really not a age thing. She just gets so happy. Hehe... you're making me do this. Here's a pic of my little princess, Hattie. I'll leave it as a thumbnail for the sake of those who would like to bludgeon me for posting such a large pic on a thead.
Josie is the fiesty one (as long as I am there to take up her slack.)
PS: Leave it to me to find a way to post pics of my girls on a thread dealing with cat pee.
It's called "submissive urination" -- and is a rather common problem with hyper females. Get used to it and DON'T lick your lips.
Cats Are Like Footballs
it's Up...it's Good
However, if the cat peed on my range bag I'd hold out for a whole new range bag.
My range bag stays locked inside my safe~!
I have a 25lb male Siamese* that I love very much, but I wouldn't think
too kindly 'bout him peeing on my range bag~!
*FootNote: His name is Chunky Monk, and he definitely fits it too
cat = bait
cat that pees in my range bag = science project
I agree with the first part. Only. Cats do not belong to anyone, except they like the person who feeds then the government um owner. They only give when they must, or when it benefits them.
Dogs are not subjects, dogs are members of the family. They are part of the pack. They are loyal but not subjects. A dog in a pack will listen to the leader, and do what he says, most of the time. Sometime he will try to resist and see if he can lead. He will protect you with his life, even if its after you just yelled at him.
Dogs rule, cats pee.
When you feed a cat, he looks at you and thinks, "I must be a god!"
Dogs look up to us, cats look down on us, but pigs think of us a equals.
Don't remember the exact quote.
Asimov is credited with this one, though I have need seen it verified:
"There are many intelligent species in the universe, and most of them are owned by cats."
If a dog jumps in your lap, it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing, it is because your lap is warmer.
Alfred North Whitehead (1861 - 1947)
Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
Ann Landers (1918 - 2002)
I loathe people who keep dogs. They are cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves.
August Strindberg (1849 - 1912), A Madman's Diary, 1895
Yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
Bible, Matthew xv. 27.
Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There's so little hope for advancement.
Charles M. Schulz (1922 - 2000), (Snoopy)
It's funny how dogs and cats know the inside of folks better than other folks do, isn't it?
Eleanor H. Porter (1868 - 1920), Pollyanna, 1912
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
Fran Lebowitz (1950 - )
When a dog runs at you, whistle for him.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
The dog was created especially for children. He is the god of frolic.
Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)
A dog owns nothing, yet is seldom dissatisfied.
Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.
Old age means realizing you will never own all the dogs you wanted to.
My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.
When a dog bites a man, that is not news, because it happens so often. But if a man bites a dog, that is news.
John B. Bogart (1848 - 1921)
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
Josh Billings (1818 - 1885)
If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)
We are alone, absolutely alone on this chance planet: and, amid all the forms of life that surround us, not one, excepting the dog, has made an alliance with us.
Maurice Maeterlinck (1862 - 1949)
A door is what a dog is perpetually on the wrong side of.
Ogden Nash (1902 - 1971)
On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog.
Peter Steiner, cartoon in The New Yorker, July 5, 1993
I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.
A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down.
Robert Benchley (1889 - 1945)
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives.
And my favorite:
Every dog needs a boy.
Ann Landers (1918 - 2002)

"Excerpts from a Cat's Diary"
Day 983 of my captivity. My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.
Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet.
I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. Bastards!
There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.
Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now...
I love cats....
They taste just like chicken...
