Man they are beautiful.
If you were to ask my daughter she would say having the cat is worth it lol
Usually, cat owners find that to be true... and non-cat people scratch their heads and don't get the fascination.

Cats don't have "pack" mentality like dogs do, so they tend to take people on a case-by-case basis - they decide if they like or respect you, and there's not much you can do to change their minds.

Whereas a dog accepts correction, or even punishment, from an "alpha" readily, cats do not. They can harbor grudges, pick fights, and even become downright hateful if handled the same way a dog is handled. A cat doesn't need a dominant force in its life to give it guidance - and any such attempt is usually met with extreme resistance. Positive reinforcement, however, typically works wonders.

For them, affection comes from a genuine desire to be friendly, not from a desire to please or obey. As someone who has treated - and owned - both cats and dogs for decades, I can honestly say that the relationship a cat has with its owner can be just as loving and loyal as that with a dog... IF the cat and the person are the right match.

Lol my wife gets mad. She brought these cats home. And they all instantly follow me. One cries if i leave or shut doors in frontbof him, his sister sits on my shoulder like a parrot. And the other is old but just waddles behind me up and down steps. My wife come home from work cats are no where to be found. I walk in and they come crawling out of their hiding places.

Lol, yup - the cats choose, and the person gets no vote whatsoever. I don't know which is funnier, the cat-lover who gets rejected, or the cat-hater who has a rolling thundercloud of cats following them everywhere they go...

Then you've got folks who are cat-neutral... and they tend not to stay that way for long. Kinda like religion and politics, cats are something about which it's tough to have no opinion.

You know it's really funny I was never a cat person until a cat decided I was going to be a cat person lol. And now I just look at dogs as needy

We had 2 cats earlier on. And didnt get them fixed soon enough. They had kittens. After about a week of them being born. the mom decided to give me all the kittens. I woke up with 6 kittens on me and 2 cats sitting next to the bed. I got no idea what that was about. But i do remember what it was like trying to go to the bathroom with 8 little cats following me in there. I said here ill turn on the water in the tub jesus christ lol. I gave all kittens away but the one and its mother and father. Last days of the father in pic. That one was like a dog. He cornered the water company lady in my bathroom and wouldn't let her out. And here I locked up the Husky :D

Lest we ever think of our pets as truly "domesticated", Robert Sijka took a lovely series of photos of a massive, show-stopping Maine Coon named Dolce Vita.

Take a good look and ask yourself 'am I gonna grab this and try to pet it, or am I gonna throw a steak at it and hope it doesn't eat me?'

You're probably right. After all, we willingly allow fur-covered balls made of razor blades come into our homes and take over. It's like a bad 80s sci-fi-horror crossover movie. And we PAY for the privilege of doing it. Makes no sense whatsoever.

Well, maybe a little sense. In exchange, we get hugs.

No offense taken!!! Cats choose the humans that they love.
Dogs act like needs to prove something in order for you to love them they have codependent disorder.

I love all animals. I have a cat now because they are easy. She will be 10 in July. I'm not home enough to have a dog. My cat is a inside cat and uses that box every time. Sits next to me on the sofa every night and watches tv with me. She will leave the room if I put FAKE NEWS CNN on. Yes she hates FAKE NEWS CNN too ... lol

Well it's 2 in the morning on Sunday morning she's been home from the hospital for two days now.
But she's suffering now from extreme nausea from all the oral antibiotics. This is a really scary situation I have never felt more powerless. My daughter's been through a whole lot. The doctors think that it might be from her celiacs disease reacting to her antibiotics so she may have to go back in form or IV antibiotics. If she can't keep them down I'll keep everyone posted.
Who would ever think something so cute could make you so sick

That cat almost got her eye ball removed. A infection will take out her eye, but no reposts yet.

Crazy how the cat got up on table to attack her more. The other cat seem to protect her for a bit.

Little kids are really taken advantage of by both cats and dogs, If that was a little kid, the kid would be in very bad heath.

I think some dogs are bred for sexual pleasures for women. But little kids are victims
by aggressive sex attracts. and people do not even know what some dogs are breed for. Some dogs I seen just start to hump my leg.

A really good ass beating for that cat is highly recommended.
