Something you might need to tell us?



"Getting in the bathroom before the Fila puppy" became a sport with all three of the grrrrls. They did grow out of it, although it took Shiva the longest, and I did learn it was better to go ahead and let them in after they'd learned to open the door.

Shiva would get IN the shower with me. Buffy and Kharma were content to "guard" me, lol.

They want to know where you are pretty much all the time, but as they grow up and gain confidence they're fine with checking on you every now and then.

I haven't had alone time in the bathroom in over 13 years.


As for my rescued Fila, she was sooo scarred from the emotional neglect at just 7 1/2 months of age. She bonded to me like cement, which was awesome. But she also felt the need to protect me from everyone, and this included my children, but especially my then 9-month-old (whom she literally went after on multiple occasions). She never felt she could rest, and as the days went by, her anxiety and her over-protectiveness of me got exponentially worse. It was awful to watch her become worse despite the training, socialization, and just trying to let her "be". I have NO doubt that those early months of neglect and abuse cost her life. I still cry over what could've, and should've, been if only someone didn't feel the need to get some "rare" and "cool" breed and then neglect and abuse it.

Just had to poke in and say that noise reminds me of the raptors from Jurassic park. Freaks me out.

Even if it was only a short time, Jazz had exactly what is most important to a Fila with you. She had everything. <3

What Yoko said. I have one very dignified cat, and one dumb cat who is all over me, all the time, never shutting up and always wanting to be cuddled.

But I totally get that cats have no need for long hikes, obedience classes, dog sports and other outlets, etc. Though I take one of my cats for walks. Well. . .more accurately, I put a harness and leash on her, she takes me for a walk and decides she wants to roll around on the ground and sunbathe for about an hour.

I usually get a cream and white fluffy tail under the door of my loo and occasionally a nose through the door (our door doesn't shut completely).

This morning Abby went out to the loo and I stayed in bed and apparently Grace, thinking that I was up and going straight to the loo, walked right in had a look, couldn't find me and came into my room. My mum was amused, apparently she was standing there for quite some time?? She must've thought I had escaped from the secret exit!

Mine are, too. If I leave the apartment for more than 5 minutes, my Bowie follows me around until I sit down and then jumps in my lap and purrs. He also sometimes follows me into the bathroom and jumps on my lap. I went away for a week this summer and when I got back, Bowie cuddled me non stop. He would sit on my lap with his paws on my shoulders and his head under my chin, purring:


He needs me and I love that he does! Ziggy, on the other hand, just loves everyone and follows people around purring until they pick her up, then she'll ride on your shoulder:
