and you’re a cheapskate. lol
It is true. I had TWO on my paper route as an eleven year old.
LOL Fawn, you’re so funny!
Could be, I can’t untangle cause and effect.
I am surprised how many children are afraid of my golden retriever. Perhaps they are afraid of getting yellow hair all over their clothes!
If memory serves me (and sometimes it doesn’t) a calico male cat is either an XXY (and probably sterile) or perhaps a chimera.
When dating I have the same feeling about cat women...not worth having around...they are always a few bricks shy of a full load...:o)
Three cats IS a houseful to me....
There is a chapter in M. Scott Peck’s “Road Less Traveled” about people that love pets just a little too much...it is a psychological problem...a need for control...problem with relating to humans...etc...
I had a friend who was going to have one of his cats put to sleep because it didn’t use the litter box as was getting old...he fancied himself the pet lover but was really a total control freak.
I think some kids are just afraid of big dogs. Your retriever is probably as gentle as my lab.
Yes, I guess that’s it. I’m sure there’s a reason, maybe they have been bitten or menaced by a big dog. I was always drawn to animals as a kid. But I find a lot of people who draw AWAY from my dog (I keep her leashed off my property and I don’t let her approach strangers unless they show an interest). It just surprises me how many people shrink away from her.
Almost nothing stinks worse than cat urine. Perhaps if you’re around cats a lot you get immune to the smell. It’s even gross if they just use the garden as a litter box. Every time it rains? Eau De Kitty Cat.
I have two cats.
I’m not a crazy cat lady.
Maybe a little crazy, but for sure I ain’t no lady.
I know they don't live forever, so I feel whatever we can do to help them and protect and love them for the short time they are in our lives the more they enrich ours. We now have two (6 years and 1 year - today - Happy Birthday, Beaux!)
What a beautiful cat!
I know it’s hard to lose them. We had a cat when I was a kid, she was the funniest thing. We gave her to another family when we moved away (hey, I was a kid, it wasn’t my choice!) and she later died of feline leukemia. I was sad even tho I had not seen her for a couple of years.
Nothing smells worse than cat urine? HAve you noticed your doggie breath recently?? :)
Yes, she loves to breathe in my face. But, no, I will take even BAD dog breath to cat urine. And the nice thing is, no one else has to smell my dog’s breath, but cat urine, if they make a habit of using people’s gardens for toilets EVERYONE gets to share the joy. :)
I’m sorry that you had such bad dogs! But, I wash my dogs with doggie soap, cats wash themselves with cat spit! And if you cannot smell cat urine, perhaps you have a sinus problem! ;)
All dogs are the same, some smell more and slobber more ...all over the furniture, car windows, floors and walls.... Cat spit is sanitary and doesn’t smell. Cats always smell good...dogs always smell bad (except for 2 minutes after a bath)—unless of course you smell their breath in those 2 minutes because they love to eat sh*t.
Sweetie, you continue to live in Fawnworld. It seems to make you happy. :)
I just know animals dearie.....
Not as well as you think you do. :)
I’ve owned tons of different animals through the years, traop, foster, feed and work with a shelter....you?
You know Fawn, we’ve had this discussion before, and frankly, anyone who cares can read your posts and decide for themselves. So, I will let you have the last word because it seems to be really important to you and I’m a nice person. Have a wonderful day. :)
I guess you realize that what I’m talking about is legit. You aren’t that nice of a person, since you trash me and cats alot....you have a nice day too.
