The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

I like the 'Mean Kitty' videos better.

Re: It takes a manly man to own a cat

everything he says it trueeeeee, i wont look at another man if he doesnt like cats.

And (possibly the reason my relationships break down) i always make sure a prospective partner knows my cat comes first.

Cats are not for wimps.

Think of it this way: which would you rather tangle with, a dog or a dog-sized cat? There's no contest. Cats are ferocious.

Just look at Gizmo. That is the face of danger .

Is that what his avatar look is? I thought the look on his face was more: "Oh, hello, I didn't see you there. Whatcha got for me?"

Re: It takes a manly man to own a cat

I have two sons, both of whom are 6'4", and one lifts weights every night. They are absolute suckers for anything that purrs! My husband is 6'1", and Nina follows him everywhere, crying to be picked up. He loves her.

They are real men! When I was breeding Siamese kittens, my weight lifter son picked up the couch after I told him where Precious and Blueberry had the kittens. He couldn't wait to play with them. It touches my heart.

Re: It takes a manly man to own a cat

My 6 year relationship with my ex didn't work out and I think that was partly because we were in totally different places as far as pets/animals went. He did like the cat we got (Samson) but Sammy was never allowed to sleep in our bedroom.

After we broke up, Sammy slept in my bed everynight, somenights when it was really cold, he'd sleep under the blankets with me. When I met the guy I'm with now, I was living with a friend who also had a cat. My now boyfriend would give the cats so much attention when he came over and he didn't care about Sammy sleeping in the bed with us!

I later found out that growing up, he lived with his aunty who brought stray kittens home all the time and they often had upto 11 cats living with them.

Now, we're living together with Samson, and the crazy little Meeka (who we adopted early this year) and he absolutely LOVES them! I often tell him off for giving them more attention than he gives me. Hehe.

It's so much better being in a relationship when your partner shares your love for your pets.

I also think that alot of men that don't like cats feel that way because they didn't have them growing up, and they were 'taught' by their parents not to like cats. Alot of my family disliked them until I got cats and they've realised they actually are loving and fun animals.

Re: It takes a manly man to own a cat

My Partner is a man's man - works on building sites and plays rough n ready rock music. (tho not at the same time )
He is such a softie with the Tiddlers, it is a joy to behold. He is always picking up Margaret Tiddler and kissing her. She lets him do it - but she doesn't like it if I try it!
I think its been said here before, but its the men who are comfortable in thier own skins who aren't afraid to show affection to a cat
