Default Cat person?

I have a hard time admitting this on a dog forum... I mean I've always "liked" cats but lately with the crew I have now they are right up there with my dogs in how much I enjoy them....

I never thought I would be a "Cat person!" LOL

I hear you there. I'm always trying to tell people I'm not a cat person, but now I want a bengal cat more than anything.

And my cat, Whiskey... while he is a total turd sometimes, he is SERIOUSLY cool and he's a total love bug. He actually enjoys hanging out with me and is lying next to me right now while I browse Chaz.

I don't consider myself a 'cat person' either, but admit sometimes I wish I was, LOL... so much easier, in a lot of ways, than dogs. But I just can't get myself to have that same bond or connection with a cat. I think they're cute and all but that's as far as it goes. lol.

Hannah said one day while the dogs were barking (which she hates)... She says "mom... I just never wanted these dogs. I like cats and bunnies" lol sometimes... I can't blame her. The dogs drive me NUTS

It's funny, I think my dogs are the quietest pets we own. The cats are pretty mouthy, and the birds can make my ear drums vibrate when they really get going. Jack rarely barks and if Sally barks it's only a couple of barks at a time--they mostly grunt and Jack snores.

That's how I've always felt, and Bob and Marley are more like that (I think them having each other may be part of that) but Nuts and Minnie? I'm as bonded to them as I am to most dogs...

My cars are mostly quiet, though when the youngsters decide to play at one am its a bit much....

And the parrot, yeah shattered ear drums at times!!

You gotta meet my boy. It's hard for me not to have a strong bond with him. My bond with him isn't much different than the dogs honestly. There are some cats that I just can't stand, but cats with Whiskey's temperament and personality I tend to be drawn to. I like cats that are talkative, high energy, playful, snuggly, in your face types that actually like to spend time with their people. He seems to really enjoy cuddling up with us and wants to be involved in everything rather than just do his own thing like some cats I've had in the past.

My cat is an asshole but I think hes the coolest cat ever lol.

I'm definitely not a cat person though. I'll own them again, but just one at a time and I won't mind not having one. I do like bengals though. We've had a few come in at work and they've all been really sweet and good to work with.

Maybe I'll get a cat one day that 'clicks' with me!

I do love my godmom's two Tonkanese cats... sooo full of personality. Honestly, they seem like more work than a dog sometimes though. Always climbing up the curtains, on top of things, on doors, and then they jump on your head and meow all the time lol.

I love both dogs and cats

Growing up I always wanted a dog, but my father did not like dogs so I ended up having to wait until I was a teen to get my first dog. When my parents divorced that was the first thing my mom did...she got me a dog.

We did always have cats though
