My sister has a black belt in karate. In her younger days, Sis was a sensei, a teacher or instructor of Japanese martial arts. Sis still works out every weekend at the martial arts studio owned by a very good friend of hers. Apparently, Sis's kitty, Miss Murphy, was bound and determined that my sister was either staying home or taking her along in that backpack to the martial arts studio. When my sister started gathering her martial arts attire, and whatever else one who dabbles in martial arts needs, Miss Murphy plopped on Sis's backpack and would not budge. Sis stayed home.

She looks really good for a 19-year-old kitty cat.

@Corbin5 Mindy got mad at me, for something she didn't like. So, she moved into the condos, one block over from our house! Mindy casually walked past our home, like she had no idea who lived there!

lol That is pretty typical bossy kitty behavior, probably a good idea to just stay home.

At age 19, Miss Murphy does seem to rule the house.

That is an adorable photo. My cat Sid thinks that he is the only one who has the right to eat in this house. I feed him in the morning then I get food for myself and as soon as I come upstairs he is meowing to see what I have. Cats always want to have their own way.

Sid is a wonderful kitty cat. Kitty cats do have a tendency to rule the roost, it seems.

For being age 19, Miss Murphy does really well and is quite bossy.

Cats do rule. Molly the dog says, "Dogs rule, cats drool" but I bet Miss Murphy would scare the daylights out of Molly.

By the way Miss Murphy looks like my Sophie. I can see a cat doing that, but, in order for me to take Sophie with me I would have to put her in one of her carriers or she would jump out of something and then run away and no more Sophie. I believe my Sophie is very happy to stay at home while I go out and do whatever I have to do. Does she take Miss Murphy places with her? Does Miss Murphy go into the backpack and stay there?

Miss Murphy does OK in the car, but she complains a lot in the carrier, as do all 4 of my sister's cats. My parents had a cat they could never get into the carrier unless we came over and helped. Miss Murphy, and the other kitties, have made their way into the backpack for a nice, peaceful nap every now and then.
@Hannihar (44331)

@Corbin5 Deborah, do they stay in the backpack? My Mitzi that I had before Sophie hated going in the carrier. I had to pick her up and put her in and make sure I closed the door right away or she would get out. She would go hide when she knew I would be putting her in so would have to find her and then put her in.
