Hahahaha Pyewacket....you don't know ALL of my kitty sources! Teeheehee! I hope all you cat lovers get a kick out of this one. I think I resemble every single one! LOL ..you refer to going to the bathroom as "using the litterbox." ...you do not consider an outfit complete without some cat hair. ...you consider cat hair in your food as extra fiber. ...you apologize when you step on a fuzzy cat toy in the dark. ...you snap your fingers and pat the sofa beside you to invite your guests to sit down. ...you sleep on one edge of the bed because the cat is sleeping in the middle looking soooo cute! ...you accidentally put your child's dinner plate on the floor. ...you spend more money on toys for your cats than on the kids or grandkids. ...you decorate your Christmas tree with dangly cat toys. ...your neighbors refer to you as "the crazy one with all the cats." ...you have more pictures of your cats than your kids in your wallet. ...you refer to your cat as your furry child. ...your parents wind up with a four-footed, furry "grandchild." ...you plan your vacation around the cat show schedule. ...you accidentally call your spouse by your cat's name! ...you set a place at the dinner table for your cat. ...you have a set of towels with "His" "Hers" and "Kitty's." ...you call home and leave a message on the answering machine for your cat. ...you have the cat meow on the outgoing message of the answering machine. ...you and kitty have matching outfits. ...your spouse says, "Me or the cat!," and there's no hesitation. ...you never go to the door unless it's to let a cat out. ...your favorite friends have fleas. ...you chose a house to buy based on it having a good location for the catbox. ...you think cat fur makes a wonderful garnish to any meal. ...you own 17 varieties of kitty-nail-clippers. ...you are lost for conversation with non-cat people. ...you meow so well, you confuse the cats. ...you bore the neighbors with discussions on the exact nutritional differences between 9-Lives and Amore...at length.

That's not me a 100%, but my mom doesn't expect any children from me & refuses to call my cats her grand children. My bro provided her with one human child. I call my 2 bottle babies my sons & my c-section boy my grandson. I do meow well enough to confuse cats & do so frequently! I sleep on the edge of the bed, because of the 4-9 cats sharing the bed with me - and its a TWIN!!! Since I don't have any kids, my pix are off of my cats (well, there is a shot of my neice & my mom & sis.) And there is no spouse to say - me or the cat - tho I got 3 cats that way last fall!

LOL You sound like me! My hubby originally refused to be considered a 'cat parent'. But he finally came around. Now when I tell the cats (dogs too) to go find 'Daddy', he gets a great big grin on his face. As for the bed, I have a California King, but do the cats give me any room? Noooooooo! They hog my whole side of the bed, along with the pillow. Nothing like waking up to a cat tail curled around the nose. LOL

Pong & Ping - As still pretty young cats
Ping & Pong vie to be the closest to my face. When they were younger, Ping would come up, bump my nose with his head - he still does that. Pong, on the other hand would lay down between Ping & my face & if my face just happened to be UNDER him, too bad!

We can honestly say that our cats like to share their fur coats quite willingly. LOL I don't even put decorations on the Christmas tree anymore. We have a fake one with the lights already on it, and that's bad enough. The cats are constantly trying to pull them off, plus I got tired of searching the whole house for decorations that became cat toys. So now what do they do? Try to claw open every single present! They are such brats, and I wouldn't give them up for anything.

You know you're a cat person when: You know every meow of each cat in your life and you speak to them only in their own individual meows... 1. Riaaaangggg? 2. Meooooowwwwwrlll! 3. Manghhh! Manghhh? 4. Rehl? Rehl? Rehl? MmmmmmM? 5. (my personal favorite( T-Anghhh?! These are sooo god! I always apologize when stepping on cat toys in the dark! And yes, food must have at least one cat hair to be considered healthy. Cats or Hubby? No contest. ;) I sleep with two or three cats, each had his own spot. One on my feet, on at one side of my hip, and the other against my back.

Don't forget Rrrrrooooowwwwwrrrrrr. Or the little silent whispery meow. It's funny, but there is even cat fur in our vehicles from the cat fur coats we wear out of the house. LOL

I will have to email this to my brother they are going to get a new kitten on 23 of may, Zack left a big hole in their lives that the new little one will be more than welcome. I was delighted when He told me. he was so apologetic and I said the Zack was the very best cat, and his new little brother or sister will be a delight and I can hardly wait to meet him/her After all why would you not adopt a new family menber.

This is way too much like me, my cats, and dogs are my life, and I build al my decisions around their needs. I even have a cats meow as my cell phone ring. Every time it rings at work, somebody thinks I have a cat in my office.

I used to know a guy who would phone his home number and leave a message so his cat Daisy could hear his voice and not be lonely for him if he was out for a long time.

That's too funny! My former boss and dear friend didn't have any cats. But she does have two dachshunds, and she will call and leave a message for them. Or she will call while her hubby is home, and he'll let the machine pick up just so he can watch the dogs get all excited over mama's voice. LOL

I don't know them all pal but they were a brilliant read , I love all animals had dogs but never cats because my Mum has always been scared of them , Years ago she was asleep on a deck chair and a lovely tabby cat jumped on her ( i told her he was being friendly and just wanted to be close ) but he really scared her and she won't go near one , I think this is a real shame but I can understand her getting a fright , as I said pal good discussion thanks xx

Awwwww...that's too bad that she's scared of them. But I can understand her fright at having one jump up on her. They do tend to sneak up on a person. Thanks hon.

I only know that one is a "cat" person from the way he eats his fish. If this person polishes up all the flesh leaving only the bone intact without any scraps for the rats, he is a "cat" person. "CAT" in my native dialect means petty and calculative :P
