    When I got home my cats started sniffing me like they were half afraid- not quite recognizing me totally. I had to be real gentle with them and stuff and now my one cat is on my lap pittering. :)

    It was the one thing I missed.

    I have no idea if they are ovulating or not. Maybe I shall go ask them.

    And 121, I didn't even see your post before. I love cats too. I'm so happy to see them.

    After I made this thread one of them puked and then ate some of it. It was rather gross.

    Sadly my cats eat their own puke all the time too, or eachothers puke. It so gross.
    But other than that...I love cats.

    And now I want some chinese food...

    Cats are awesome, as are dogs but its different. My family grew up with cats. Always having 2 or 3 at a time, outdoors only. We have always gave are cats food names. It fits them =P

    I've yet to see any puke eating... shudder*

    My cats are indoor. Two males. They are anything but aloof. Very dependent and clingy little creatures. My little buddies. :)
    They are very happy to have me home more right now.

    our cats are indoor/outdoor. we pick them up as strays. have you ever tried to turn a stray into an indoor cat? man, it's heartbreaking, watching that light go out of thier eyes. i think they'd rather live a shorter life than live a long one indoors. but this way we get the best of both worlds. they're well fed so they're not really hunters, except rodents, thank goodness. but they're really loving, affectionate and loyal. it's crazy.

    One came from the humane society, & one was brought up in an old folks home. They have access to our patio. I used to take the senior one out on my lawn when I had one.
    That was cool, he always kept about a twelve foot radius around me all on his own. :)

    my friend has a couple cats that have been indoor cats their whole lives. they're are brilliantly happy and healthy. it wasn't a comment on how you treat your cats, rather is was a comment on taking on a stray and trying to change it's life completely. it's so sad. our elder cat was a half feral kitten when we caught her in our garage. she's such a sweet lovey now. dishes was a half starved PREGNANT kitten (well, at least six months old, but so tiny)...she's a huge cat now and completely devoted to us.

    That is very sad.
    I do get sensitive when folks take the stance that my little guys must be miserable.
    To be honest, I really didn't get that from your post so much as thinking others might take that as a green light to go there.
    It blew my mind the first time I sat the younger cat outside. He was the one raised in the senior facility. He looked up at the sky like it was gonna fall on his head, sheer terror.

    yep. totally changing an animals entire universe is the hard thing. our next cats we'll get younger and raise indoors. there's pretty strict leash laws here. but since our cats don't hunt the local birds or such, i feel more comfortable paying the fine than imprisoning them.

    You're supposed to leash a cat? :stunned:

    I can now happily say that he's much more well adjusted now. He loves being outside on the patio. I think that little bit of restriction suits him. We've managed to socialize him as well. He isn't scared of everyone like he used to be. Lays around all belly up now. :)

    yeah, there's a leash law here for cats. loads of people ignore it, unless the cat becomes a nuisance. but that hasn't been a problem yet.

    Hey, weird--we've named some of our cats with 'food names' too. One of them was even Snickers. Her mom was Candy. :D
