I used to be a dog-guy, until a stray cat showed up at our door a little over a year ago. This cat is awesome. It acts a lot like a dog but is more independent. When we first got it, it was shy, "caved", lots of scratching, etc. Now none of that. It is big for a cat, 14lbs and not fat. Its constantly running, hunting, or playing when awake.

It's smart. It can open some doors. It understands handles (but hasn't figured them out yet...soon I think). I can literally take it on short walks like a dog. It greets me when I get home. I can leave and it takes care of itself (unlike many dogs that freak out or need to be "caged"/kenneled). It has one of the most playful personalities I've ever seen...AND...

It is a ladies man. I wish I had had this cat when I was in my 20s. Whenever I go for a walk the cat will charge for any young woman it sees and immediately goes "belly-up."

The above pic was take a couple months after we got him I think. He's much too big to fit in those type of boxes anymore.


that reminds me of one of our old cats when he was a kitten, he looked exactly like that and LOVED boxes

Yeah but aren't you the one that calls smaller breeds of dogs rats?

I got a dachshund mix about a month ago and aside from his severe separation anxiety, lol, he's a fucking CHAMP.

I have two cats and they're the most wonderful cats I've ever had the pleasure of sharing a home with.

This one, without fail, comes to the toilet any time I'm going for a poo and she offers her belly up for a rub. It's never when I'm going for a piss, shower, shave... just when I'm sitting down and she knows even without sight exactly when that is. I guess she waits for the plops. So smart...

:D

Some cats suck, some are meh...

I value my dogs life more than that of nearly any human, and would die defending him.

The worst part about dogs is knowing that im going to have to out-live mine in all likelihood, thats a reality i dont want to face.

My cat loves belly rubs too, she waits for me to come out of the shower. She refuses to walk on the bath mat. This cat is LOUD as hell in the mornings too. Yells at the top of her lungs until she either gets fed or a belly rub. I walk in from work, she greets me at the door, meows, follows me to the alarm panel, then flops over on her side, paws up waiting.

This is also the only cat that won't accept human food, won't grub at the table either. She sits on the floor next to my wife's chair patiently waiting for attention.
