Right now I do NOT like cats very much. My next door neighbors cat comes over and pees on any mat I hae by front door. A few times when we ahd the garage door open he has gone in and peed in there. He walks along behind my lighted snowmen and knockes them over, he digs in my flower bed. And we have suddenly devloped fleas for the first time in years. It all started with two feral cats that walk our back fence stalking the squirrresl and birds we feed.
Cant swear they come from those cats but the fleas showed up shortly after the cats started coming in the yard all the time. I usually got 2-3 months or even longer between having to give Honey Comfortis for a flea or suspected flea--but now she has had to have them 2 months in a row and it is isn't a flea or two, but dozens on her.
On the other hand we had and adroed Pippi for 17 years. She loved all dogs and would run right up to any dog she saw. When she was about 3 or so she started not using her litter box, only the bathtub and closet. We tried changing litters, even got a new box, but she refused, so had to go outside. We built her a "cat house" she could get in, and also left the garage door up just enough for her to come in. she followed us around the yard like a dog, and if you sat down,s he got in your lap[. And she was like 10 before she was ever around small kids--and she LOVED the grandkids. they could carry her by her hed, tail, upseide down and she just purred. They would put her down and she would stay right them . She only ever ventured into the yard on either side of us and only time she went into the street was to follow us down to mail box. Her "best friend" wa the 3 pound chichiua net door. We adored her. But the cat next door and the feral cats--i wish they would go elsewhere.
