here is the cat. look at those ears :P
he is very short haired, almost like microfiber cloth / velvet, which is nice,
he doesnt have issues with hairballs, and there are no cat hairs on my clothing.

No? Why, how disappointing! A "cat person" simply must have a little fur on their clothing!

/////, your cat sure seems literate. i also like that you protect its privacy online, by only showing it from behind. very considerate.

DavidMcCann: i said "cute", so i guess i deserved that....

There are times I have to stop typing because I am about to be attacked by a "kitten" (she's got to be 9 by now!) Who just wants me to die so that she can eat my bacony flesh.
Oh, I'll dote on her but I have no illusions of what I mean to her -- cats just want to eat us.
I'll try to post a pic later, if she hasn't eaten me already...

It's because cats know they're not chameleons. They can't make themselves look like every background, so they shed to make their environment look like them.

Here's a picture of one of our two cats chasing a mouse: http://pineviewfarm.net/weblog/wp-co.../01/mouser.jpg

Here is the other one helping me watch a video on the other computer: http://pineviewfarm.net/weblog/wp-co...ot-helping.jpg

@//////: I hope you're not tempted to use this four-legged microfiber cloth to clean your display

PS Watch out for the sharp scratchy bits!

Mine has her own room/bathroom. Otherwise. The dogs think feline litter box tootsie rolls are tasty treats. Licking their own butts. I can understand why they think so.s

As far as jefro's warning/
I probably just have minor infection. Because this describes my usual behaviour in the real world.

Groundbreaking research showed that infected men tend to be more prone to breaking rules
< I left out the other crap that don't apply to me and my behaviour >

Because this is:

How I look on scientific studies


My lone cats name is Miso. I borrowed the name from this scene in the movie " Full Metal Jacket "

She catches mice,scorpions,tarantulas,cockroaches..... if it moves. It is hers. She takes no crap from the dogs. They are respectful of her. She is very affectionate. Just like the hooker in the movie scene I linked to.
