So.. do you guys like cats?

I know this might seem weird asking about cats on a form about dogs, but im curious! haha. I personally do like cats. I own three and two of them are my absolute cuddle baby love bugs. Their names are Ozzy, Miesha, and Frankie. Ozzy is about 8 or 9, we arent sure. He has been in my life since he was just a kitten and I love him to death. He sleeps on my pillow every night, and he always has to put his paw on my head too. What a silly guy =P He is the most affectionate cat you will ever meet, he gives hugs, and he willl come to his name being called. My other baby is Miesha, she is about 5 months old and so so cute. Everyone that meets her thinks she is so pretty! Frankie is more one of those ill do my own thing, you leave me alone type of cat. Cats like that.. I do not like. haha. So do ya'll like cats!?

RIP to my Golden Boy Cruz; <3 Gone but never forgotten. "My old friend this song's for you
Cause a few simple verses was the least that I could do
To tell the world that you were here
'Cause the love and the laughter will live on long after
All of the sadness and the tears
We'll meet again my old friend"

Our kitty thinks he's a dog, and thinks he's leader of our dog pack. So yes, I like cats.

We've come close to adopting kittens a few times. I really like the big Maine Coons. I've never lived with a cat, but my wife is more of a cat person than a dog person, or at least she was until Cookie came home. Still not sure about the litter box though, that's my only hangup.

We think my cat has some Maine Coon in her. She looks alot like one! I wish cats didnt require a litterbox, too. My best advice is keep it fresh! I never really have any problems with the room smelling because of the litterbox, but I know all too easily it can happen.

We have three cats. All our cats come when called. One kitty, Claire we think is autistic...no I'm not kidding, but she is special and we love her the way she is, right now she is with our son and it looks like she is doing well so he may keep her. Our old lady is 18 and dealing with renal failure and our youngest, Grace is 3 years, sweet as anything, loves my husband the best, but if he isn't here I am good enough to sit on.

I will always have a cat. I don't find the litter box to be an issue, we use scoopable litter and just scoop the poop everyday. Takes a couple of minutes. We also have a litter room, we cut a door in the door of our basement closet and only the cats fit through so the dogs don't get the opportunity to snack...works great, we never deal with smell scooping it everyday either.

I like cats! I am definitely a "dog person" but I have had multiple cats growing up that were awesome. The last cat remaining at my parents house is a young cat that I found abandoned and adopted, but to be honest, she kind of sucks. She just never developed a friendly personality. She's not mean, she is just kind of a dud. She just sits there and isn't really interested in being petted. Oh well, I get enough petting and love from my boys!!

Yes, although I've never had one. If I get to a point where I can't have a dog I'd consider a cat.

I want to like cats but...they scare me half to death! The way they look at you, like they're thinking "soon"

I love cats! I always had a cat growing up. My Mom used to say "A house is not a home without a cat" I still live by that rule. I currently have 2 cats. I used to have three, but two years ago someone stole my Bandit cat. :-( He was very sweet, not a mean bone in his body, just a love, I had him for 7 years. I miss him dearly. The two I still have are Squeege (Solid black) He's 9 years young, he's a great cat, he's never raised a paw to anyone in the house, His fangs are too big and stick out. OJ is our orange cat, he's 7 years old now, he was ferrel when we brought him home, now he's just a big suck, lives to be held and snuggled, he likes to rub his chin on us! lol
