Cool... I didn't know this forum was hiding on the board!

Add me to the list of folks who live with a dog but are partial to cats. Our Mickey is the first dog either of us has had in years. My family had a poodle when I was a kid, and I had an Irish setter back in the Seventies. I've had room mates with dogs, but we still always seemed to have cats in the house.

When I got married almost five years ago, my husband realized that I missed having a cat in my life. When I'd moved from FL to WA to be with him, I'd left my senior cat Harlequin (aka Momcat, because she'd been a feral kitten-making machine before deciding to hook up with me, and everyone in the neighborhood just called her "that ol' wild mama cat") with my mother. (I'd already moved her from TN to FL, and she'd hated the trip. Gave me the cat cold shoulder for almost a year afterwards.... I couldn't do that to her again, and Mama, who'd never been a fan of cats, had fallen hard for her, even warming tuna for her: "But, Carolyn, she doesn't like it out of the refrigerator." LOL) Jamus planned to get me a kitten for my birthday from the shelter, but fate intervened. His oldest daughter -- the girls live with their mom -- had a cat, and, when they moved into an apartment, her mom said the cat had to go. Knowing that the child was worried about the cat, whom she'd had from kittenhood, Jamus asked me, "Hon, would you mind if I got you a 'used' cat instead of a kitten?"

Of course not!

So we took Minnie in. She'd been an indoor/outdoor cat, but stayed out more than in (at least they'd had her spayed,) and she had become all but feral. As we say down south: wilder'n a bessie bug! Jamus told me that, when he'd still been with his ex, he always thought the cat hated him, but, after moving in with us, she soon decided that, while Mama Human does the food and litterbox duties, Daddy Human must have hung the moon. She adores him! Me? Besides being the cat servant, I'm good for pouncing on in bed to demand ear-luvin's. If I play possum, she head-butts me or gently paws at my face until I give in and rub her ears. She knows I'm always ready to pet her, but she loves playing the game.

She's a funny cat, a sworn hater of dogs, and we -- and the dog -- definitely get along with her on her terms. Except for her addiction to ear-luvin's, she's less demonstrative than most cats I've known, and I've lived with some pretty stand-offish felines. But when she does decide she wants petting and attention, there's no escaping her! Not that we want to.... Most of the time, though, she just wants to snooze, preferably in one of her hidey-holes. What amazes us is that when my husband, who's diabetic, is about to have "sugar trouble," Minnie hops up on him and starts making bread on his tum. She knows before he does, and she won't stop until he's feeling better. We call it "kitty CPR." She's getting on in years, now, and she's definitely lost her kittenish figure. We call her the Plumpalotapuss! Here's a little animated gif I made of some of my favorite Minners pics (a couple of them, I'm afraid, were taken with my first digital camera, which was awfully lo-res):

Our first pet was a cat. Patches was born from a stray cat under our deck. I worked for 6 months to get him to trust me and come up to me. Well worth it. I brought him inside, had him neutered and decided he would be indoor only. He is now 7 and I love him to pieces, he's my first baby. He's black and white with mint green eyes.

Then a cat at my husbands work had a litter, so we brought in Lucky. She is female (and has been spayed), she also is indoor only. All the guys at my husbands work chipped in and had the mama cat spayed, so no more litters. Lucky is now 4 years old and rules the roost. She doesn't even let the dog bully her. She's also black and white with yellowish eyes. She's a tad overweight, cause she loves her treats.

Last year, someone dropped a pregnant cat and of course I started feeding her (she was solid black, and just a sweetheart). We named her Sassy and when I took her to the vet, he was concerned that she was too young to have the litter, so we decided to "take" the kittens (please don't bash me on this, I couldn't keep the kittens, and our local shelter puts many to sleep everyday, so they would've died anyway). So at the same time I had her spayed, so we wouldn't have this problem again. At the time we were letting her in and out of the house, with the intention of making her an indoor only cat like our other two.

Before we could get her in, the neighbor's dog next door (who just runs loose, but that is another issue) ran her in front of a car and she was killed. Never again, will I allow a cat of mine outside.

Now we just adopted a lab/border collie mix (we've had her 2 months), who is 4 months old. She keeps everybody in the house on their toes

Cats are definetly more easier than dogs, but I love them both just the same.

I love this thread. And I love seeing all the photos!!!!!!!!!
We have 5 cats. All fixed since 1 year old
Tommy - our first and oldest. Rescued from H/S. He is now a she thanks to a stone stuck in his urethra. He is 14
Hollie - Xmas gift from brother. She is 9
Dharma - She is 8. When I moved form STL to SLC I had to stop at Wally World. A man had a box of free kittens outside. I said no on the way in and on the way out I peeked, grabbed and ran to the car before I changed my mind. She is our orange (red) tabby with real long hair. Named her Dharma for "a time and a place for a reason".
Tiger - 8 Other half started to feed a stray cat. One day he opened the door and well, she never left.
Gizzie is a pure persian. She is 4 white with red tip and blue eyes. She is deformed and breeder couldn't paper her. Breeder gave her to a girl I work with whose son was too young for an animal. So, I brought her home.
My cats bring me so much peace - when I need to relax I go to their room (yep they have their own room at our house). My furbabies aren't spoiled at all!!!!!!!!!!!LOL No, not spoiled, just blessed

That is so cute, Akaspaddero! Our cats have their own room too!! My husband built a knee wall at the door to their bedroom. This gives them access to the whole house, but the dog can't get in their room. Now, when they've had enough of the dog, they can go to the "Sadie Free" room. I must admit, I go there to get away from the dog too, sometimes.

We also built a screened enclosure off their bedroom window. Now they can go out and get fresh air, but I still know their safe.
