    Cat Silliness

    Ditto on that. My poor girl still cowers every time someone makes a quick upward movement, but she's still the sweetest thing ever.

    Cat Silliness

    That's insane, rokytnji. My mom had a similar experience with a dog that she "rescued" from certain death on a highway (being tossed from a car) dog she ever owned.

    I don't understand people who do stuff like that. It's one thing to attempt to do harm to an animal that is capable of defending itself, but a fuzzball kitten? I don't get it.

    Cat Silliness

    Crash, who I scrapped off of a freeway about 15 years ago. A male.
    Has seen better days. He sleeps mostly. I Think he has 1 tooth left.
    I still remember him as a scared kitten hiding in my shop. Healing up.
    Took about a week for him to come out and look at me and cry out.
    Crash is a black and white sylvester cartoon looking cat.

    Miso. My over weight female (fixed). She is a princess who is not afeared of nothing.
    She IS a human lover. Not a fighter. But. I have seen her throw back a feral cat going
    for her feed bowl.
    Miso is a snowshoe cat. Google will tell you.

    Mine serve a function keeping critters from the desert taking up residence in my M/C shop.
    I have no field mice, ground squirrels, rattle snakes, or kangaroo rats in my shop because of this.

    My 5 dogs keep the skunks, porcupines, bobcats, coyotes, and mountain lions at bay.

    As you can tell. I am not a city boy.
    My wife has connections with the animal control division in my county.
    So all my cats and dogs are throw aways that were to be put to death
    any ways. They live a natural good life with me and are happy campers.

    After crash passes on. I will be on the look out on the freeway again to pick up his
    successor. I saw crash thrown out of a car window doing 70MPH on a Texas freeway
    while riding my motorcycle. I inserted the busted up kitten inside my leather jacket and took him home.

    Pizza Night!

    Cat Silliness

    The cat we have now is a lot like your orange cat. He's average size, very friendly, and you wouldn't expect him to get involved in a fight ever. When we moved to Washington, there was a neighborhood cat that was used to using our back yard as a highway to cut across the neighborhood, and Stewie shredded our screen door so he could go beat the snot out of the invader. I'd never seen Stewie do anything like that before, so it was quite a shock.

    A completely uninteresting, self-centered whinefest

    Welcome to Hell, married life. (Just funning)

    Owning 5 dogs and 2 cats myself because the wife is a soft touch. One of the reasons I love her so much.
    Losing sleep can make one a bit cranky.

    Thankfully for me a I am a biker with my own business and when times get tough.
    I use biker prozac and all frustration lifts off my shoulders like magic.
    My grin makes me easier to bear in company.

    Better you post here than beat your loved ones.

    Hope things work out for ya. Sometimes one has to bite the bullet. Think of all the poor souls worse off
    than you and then you might shake your head and grin your self.

    linuxquestions is as good a place as any and better than most for a late night rant. Hopefully today will be better.
