Cat experiences you've never had

I often read the forum posts and think, "Hmmmm, that's never happened to me." There seem to be a lot of things that are fairly common in cat guardianship world, but in my 7 years of having a cat, have never happened to me. Here are some examples.....

I've never had a kitten.
I've never had to get a cat neutered or spayed.
I've never had a cat break or destroy anything in the house.
I've never had a cat eat anything but his or her own food.
I've never lost a cat outside.
I've never had a cat fall asleep on my lap.

How about you?

I've never had a boy cat.

I've never had a big cat (like a big orange boy that I'd like someday).

I'm touching wood as I type this (meaning I have one hand on my head)...but, I've never had a cat scratch my furniture.

Never had a purebred cat
Never had a pregnant cat
Never had an older cat PTS (the only cat I've had euthanized was 3)
Never had a cat destroy anything due to being clumsy/playful
Never had a cat that jumps up on counters/higher places
Never had a strictly indoor cat; Blaze was until last year... but no more

... Wish I'd never had a male cat. Probably never will again.
... the one kitten I had, I was only 5 at the time, so in a way I've never had a really young kitten, I don't remember the experience.

I've never had a pregnant cat
I've never had that big orange boy that for some strange reason I want to have, too, just as Marie
I've never had to run to the ER with a sick cat that's already part of my family
I've never had a cat that for one reason or another has not scratched me really hard leaving a scar, got a lotta them (I even got bitten by Rulos all because of a newbie vet, ---seriously bitten)

And I never got to celebrate Christmas with my girl cat. She missed the ribbons and the ornaments and lights... I even had a silly hat for her . I guess some grief just never leave, you just learn how to cope with it.

I;ve never had a cat greet me at the door after a long day at work with a cold Diet Dr. Pepper and ask me all about my day, making sure I sat down for a few minutes and relaxed before I even thought about getting them dinner. Never had a human do that either, so I guess that's fair.
