I thought....

Figured this would be a fun thread about what you thought about how a cat should be...and how yours are...


I thought...

cats should always be able to keep their balance
They are always graceful
They always land on their feet...

Hana...has prove this to be otherwise

Shes the most uncoordinated cat Ive ever seen...she tries to follow oliver everywhere he goes, hes a lil ballerina on anything, he has been known to just stand at the top of the door...her on the other hand, anything less then 5 inches wide, and shes toppling over...its like...when her brain says go left...the rest of her goes....huh?...wait...she said left right? or was it right...hmmm *falls*

I hate it when computers decide to erase posts just to spite me. LOL

I was expecting Gabby's personality to be the same as she was at her former human's house. But I have to remember she went from being a part of a 3 kitty household in a large house to being the only kitty in a smallish one bedroom apartment and is eating totally different food (dry Science Diet to high quality almost all wet). I've only had her for a month so I'm sure there will be additional changes.

I always thought cats were mighty mouse hunters; playful and constantly active. Azalia is none of these attributes. She is a big kitty with a tiny little meow. She is also the daintiest eater and a big goofball overall.

I also always thought that cats were very fastidiously clean...not Egypt. She's a stinky one. I have to give her a regular bath about once every other month or so or else she reeks.

Hmm.. I was always told that cats are solitary aloof animals... Mine practically live on my lap.. or in a sleeping pile of fur.. Nope no solitary behavior here. Even our newest, who is getting used to the other rabble prefers being at least in the room with people.. and is showing he is actually highly social as he get used to the rest.



I was also told that cats sufficate babies.(no I never believed that, and yes when i announced i was pregnant people harassed me about getting rid of the cats). and my children have reached the ages of 7 and 12.. if they don't see their next birthday its because of their own behaviors not the kitties. And most of the cats are older then the kids and were here first....

My husband is a cat guy, but I had never had a cat or dog until 2008. I thought everything my mom had drilled into us as kids -- you won't want to scoop a litterbox, they shed, they're expensive, forget it.

And when I started thinking that having a cat is an experience I ought to be open-minded to, my husband said in reference to the amount of work involved, "Having a cat is only one step up from having a houseplant." Well, that was a little stretch too.
