    I’d like to let people know you can drop them off at the SPCA or animal control instead of Dumping them in the woods or on the street because they will die suffering of starvation and alone. All you have to do is tell them it’s a stray and you don’t want it and it can Get medical attention ,food and possibly new loving people. I found a cat with Mange and dropped it at the SPCA and I gave them one hundred dollars but you don’t have to pay anything. 30 dollars will last a cat a month or more. You can chose to do the right thing and feel good about yourself.please!

    My cat prefers to sleep in my bed rather than my aunt who lives with us and provide our cat with food, water and cleans the litter and all that. But our cat barely goes to my aunt and prefers me EVERYTIME. He never sleeps or goes to my bed day or night unless I am there with him, he never sleeps with my aunt in her bed (and again she is the provider of food, water, litter and others stuff that cats need) i’m just here petting him, playing with him, hanging out with him and just overall always in his sight. I never ever heard him hiss, he never bites, that’s why I can carry him whenever I want (I’m also convinced that he’s more scared of rats and other cats or kittens and never is territorial towards meeting cat strangers in our home).
    After all that, my question is “how come i’m the one he, not so say loves more, but prefer being with than my aunt (who they say because you provide cats with what they need they love you) who is a provider and i’m just another person my cat is with, in our house?”

    I have three cats. They range in age from 5 to 16. They range in weight from 8 to 20 Lbs. They are all neutered and one is declawed ( not my fault, I inherited all of them). Two of them sleep with Susan and me. Susan thinks that one of them tries to sleep on...well..my crotch out of jealousy a possessiveness. She may be correct because the cat tends to jump onto the bed and move to a spot directly between us. There are no shortages of nasty glances if Susan turns to face me (and the cat). the cats are good for my blood pressure and general mental health

    I love sleeping with my cat. He's my best friend. A few years ago rats found a way inside of the walls of my house and I am terrified of rats. It sounded like people were stomping behind my walls, I guess they were pretty big rats. I let Tigger come in and sleep in my bed with me and I would fall asleep like a baby just because I knew he was there with me and he would kill any rat that came into my room. Every once in a while I'd wake up throughout the night and as long as he was still laying there beside me I would just fall back asleep. There were a few times I would wake up and he wouldn't be on the bed and I would sit up and look for him just to find him laying on the floor beside the bed looking up at me as to tell me everything's okay, at which point I'd fall back asleep. I love my Tigger so much.

  • Linda McIntosh
    Linda McIntosh 20 days ago

    my cat always slept with her butt facing us. sometimes her head was facing the wall so watching out for danger wasn't the reason. I always figured the reason for this this way there was more area on her body that got loving petting. I was told she was just weird. Well she wouldnt have been my cat if she didn't like weird. we fit like a hand in a glove.!!

    I’m about to adopt my first cat (I’ve grown up with cats and taken care of em, but this will be the first one I own on my own, I’m 23 and have been at my first job for a while now), and I don’t know if I want to adopt a kitten or an adult cat...I know it’s probably harder for grown cats to get adopted from shelters.

    Sometimes our cat sleep in my room and in the middle of the night he would wake me up and ask me to scratch his head. So I did. But when I fall asleep and stop, he bit me. The next minute, he sleeps outside the room and I sleep peacefully.

    My cat loved to do this. She was a very gentle and sleepy sweetheart, and such a loving one too. She passed on the 25 of May, sadly. Due to expainable complications, I do not have her remains. However, I have since rescued a beautiful little solid gray kitty and he loves to nap beside me too.

    I rescued a female black kitten once who's mother passed away one October and since there were five kittens that my friend found from that litter she couldn't hand rear all of them so she kept two and I took one and the other two went with another friend (all doing great and in loving homes now) anyway I had to bottle feed her and keep her warm so at night I would keep her next to my chest under the covers. now she is three years old but still gets under the covers next to my chest at night so I know it's because she loves me and sees me as her adoptive parent.

    My mom passed away six weeks ago. I've been absolutely devastated, yet I'm so deeply grateful for my Olive. The first night I came home, she wouldn't leave me, even if I went to the bathroom, where she would sit on my shoulders and rub her head against mine. She's been an extraordinary comfort since then, too. She's always been loving, but this is a whole other level. It's like she knows and is caring for me.

    Every night at 10pm it's bed time. This girl is known to bite you if you're not in bed. She will grab your legs if you walk out of the room, too. She has to do "lights out"; meaning i hold her and she flicks out every light in the house on the way to bed. Once in bed she demands being spooned. I'm big spoon and she's little spoon. Lol! She wants me to hold her hind legs feet and then insists on facing whatever direction my face is pointed. If i flip over she will walk around and sleep on that side. This is the only cat I've ever had that does that. So weird lol! Gotta love her!
