    'My' cat moved in about ten months ago. He had been living rough at the backs of the properties where I live. He looked poorly, had some superficial injuries, and was very unkempt. I called him 'Freddie Freeloader' because, at first, he seemed only to want hand-outs. Then he would disappear for hours on end, only coming back when he was hungry. During the cold winter nights he started to stay in with me, and now I think he lives with me full time. I'm not entirely sure, because he still lives much of his life outdoors.

    He's got the best of both worlds, really. He comes indoors for food, and when it's cold, otherwise he is a totally free agent. This is Freddie, last month. He's a handsome chap:-

    Cats! I wish our landlord would allow us to adopt one. Luckily my co-worker brings her cat to the office every once in a while.

    I actually love both of them, along with other obscure pets. Cats are great because they're independent and require minimal care, since they take care of themselves and don't need to be washed or walked or anything. They're also usually not all up in your face like dogs typically are. However, I consider that both a pro and a con. Sometimes cats are too independent, and you'd rather have a dog that is all up in your face, since they're more likely to cuddle and be friendly. I feel like you can play with dogs more than you can play with cats as well, though they can be a lot more to handle sometimes. Let's put it this way, if I'm in a room and there's a dog and a cat I there, I'm playing with both of them. Now consider getting invisible fence for cats to keep them on my yard

    I have both, and then some (two birds, Blue and Gold and an African Grey nd two mini donkeys) but since this about Cats and Dogs.

    I like them in order:
    1.)Kentucky, Best dog ever. Sheds a lot though
    2.)Biscuit: Siamese cats are cool, super personalities and real talkers
    2.1)Pangor Ban( a real close tie for second Mellow as can be. A real ratter as well, just kill them before brining them in the cat door.
    3. Something
    4.) Something
    5> Blue dog cute as can be but has small dog complex always harrasing Kentucky and has no problem letting Kentucky know that certain areas are her territory. (and properly marked as such)

    Kentucky, Biscuit, and Pang are rescues.

    We now have 4 cats, they are all adopted. Here's Mrs. Hudson, an adoptee from a deceased hospice patient.

    I love cats but, after living with them for 20-30 years my wife and I became allergic. We both grew up with cats and dogs. Now we're too old to fuss with either so we baby sit the Newfoundland next door and his 3 cats. The house stays (relatively) clean if we vacuum weekly and the kitties leave presents of half eaten vermin by the back door.
    So cute!

    At least your kitty wards leave them at the back door. Mine comes in through the cat door with them, They have to have some wiggle (or more( left in them because they are much more fun to play with because that will be more fun for us, and he loves us so much he wants us to have the most fun possible.

    See I think both are awesome… I wouldn’t trade our Maisie for a dog in a million years, but I’d like a doggie as well, Schapendoes maybe.

    I think what you need to know is this.

    Cats: Completely self centred, cold hearted , utterly adorable bastards. Much smarter than you, me, or him. Also really stupid.

    Dogs: Thick as two short planks. Possibly thicker. Dead easy to train – if you do it right. Also dead easy to make into slobbering babies face eating snarlmachines.

    I'm a happy owner of Cane Corso, so of course, I think, dogs are the best pets. But it has to be noted, they require special care. I was lucky to find a good Pet Pharmacy that provides me not only with necessary supplies and meds but also with detailed info about them. And there is a good blog there. Where do you buy medications for your pets? Do you order necessary supplements and fleas protection products online?

    I do wonder why mine swats at the strings and will bite them if I let her. Does anyone else's cat do that?
    I left a uke next to kitty on the bed and she kept hooking her teeth on the strings and making them ring out!
