Cats are a bunch of self-absorbed fuzzballs. Would we have it any other way?

Cats were once worshiped as gods, cats have never forgotten this....

This is important to keep in mind, they will do as they please, it's our task to serve them. We do get many sweet benefits.
They help me type on the computer, keep my feet warm, even when my feet are not cold. And....they give great snuggles.

Yes cats do have bit attitudes as I have observed. (can't have one due to allegries - darn).

I only regret I can only have one cat now in my apt. I am used to having a pair but my year old Tache keeps me busy

I have 3 cats. They all have a personality of their own and listen to me if they want to : )

The cat food has to be moved from one location to another so they don't rip into it or even dive head first into the bag : )

I live in a 6 room house. Open a newspaper in any room, and immediately its an invitation to "read "with me.

My feral cat has shown me who is boss. He meows when I show up with the food and I understand he's telling me to put the food in his house and that I can leave now. He's enriched my life even if he won't let me touch him after eight months. But, someday... he will.

I can identify with all of these. Nothing like reaching into a panty and finding your cat sitting on the shelf.

It's because they're so much wiser than us!

Yep, don't ever think you are the boss if you have a cat. They may allow you to believe that from time to time but that is only if they want a treat, a chin scritch or a warm lap to snooze on. After that-the attitude is-why are you bothering me? I am trying to get my fur in order!

Love the kitties. Without them a home wouldn't be a home.

They know no matter how much we object to their demands we will eventually give in.
