I'll drop whatever I'm doing to entertain my cats, but we sure have fun. How about you?

1) i strongly oppose the use of POSSESSIVE pronouns (like "your", "my") for animals

2) i often found cats really amazing company; not only entertaining, but to learn from !

well I've come to be ok with your my mine for other species. Human parents do it with their children, spouses, parents friends and other species sharing one's life are family after all. I disagree with I own a dog, cat, horse, cow, rabbit etc etc.
Time with cats is so positive. It is fact that when one touches other species ones blood pressure drops (opposite with human touching) Both parties benefit with relaxation, playing, leaving worldly concerns behind. In fact when I came across this article..well question..I was chanting Om Mani Padmi Om (stressing the Om in a long drawn out low tone) and my cat's eyes slowly closed and her paws went up in the air and she looks awfully blissed out right now! Chanting helps me aan doing it with her is an added benefit!

Oh, me...oh my,..David C is strongly protesting the use of possessive pronouns as in ownership. Well, I doth protest kind Sir. I advocate such use of ownership. It is an Entitlement from the Dawn of Time. Eons have passed with ownership firmly entrenched. You dare defy Tradition? Words like "your" and "my" to be struck down from the Ethos of The Community? The concept to be struck down, Unleashed on an unsuspecting public?

The cat that owns me says that your pawsition is untenable! She in fact refuses to give up her ownership of me. In fact, being a Human Biped Serf, I look forward to decades of unyielding and loyal Servitude to the cat that owns me. Some people are just out there to spoil all the fun and Pawsession is nine tenths of the law. Take it up with The Paw. She is angerily lashing her tail back and forth upon reading your missive.

I recently housed a rescued kitten.... I hold nothing back - I love her (Blue) and my cat Sh"asta.
No time is wasted on a family member.

Thanks :")

I love playing with my boys, except for nail cutting day. They have this amazing sense that these games are just a diversion to what is to become.
