This is my girlfriend's cat this morning:

Flo: Meow. Meow? Meow. Meow! MEOW! MEOWW!!!1!
Me: *trying to ignore her outbursts*
Flo: Meow! Meow!!
Me: *finally giving up* Jeez, what?!
Flo: Meow? Meow. Meow?!
Me: You're being really loud, you know that?
Flo: Meow.
Me: Are you bored? Is that your problem?

At which point she jumped up into my lap and is now vying with the keyboard for my attention.

Saff's cats tend to be named after geological terms. This kitty is aptly named after the destructive 'pyroclastic flow'.

She's super adorable, though. I'll have to leave a pic of her in the pet pictures section.

Yeah, Pita does that, too. Sometimes she jumps up on the keyboard and adds immesurable value to my posts. *grin*

Want her in your lap? Tell her to go away and then fire a squirt gun at her. Pita knows that it's me squirting her, so she jumps on my laps when damp so I can share in the bounty.

Sounds nice...

My friend's cat, Jonathan, hits people when he wants attention.

sweetpea, our mighty blind sockhunter drags mostly socks, but any game will do, around the house yowling in a raspy voice at the precise moment the baby starts to drop off to sleep. uncanny that.

at least he practices catch and release.

One cat we had did that... then she figured out she was done learning and started to teach her family.... us... That heant many half-dead rats, birds and other small animals in our livingroom. Of course, after giving us our game, she paid no intrest to it at all

i prefer the laundry as offerings i think. our cat's aren't allowed outside at all, except on a leash.

haha! the cat I was telling about thinks of leashes as an insult... really. The only time we used it was on cartrips when she had to go outside because of natural causes. She would take forever though.

I don't think cats sould be allowed to walk around in a leash like dogs... but then again, I live in norway and not even here are cats allowed free passage in cities, if you could call our modest cumunities a "city"... :tongue:

not all that modest, trondheim has over 150 000, oslo 500 000....

cats kill thousands of birds every day, which is why ours aren't allowed to roam. they can also get into fights with racoons, skunks, dogs, foxes, cayotes and other cats. and i'm actually talking about the city of toronto, where i've seen all of the above.

furthermore they can pick up worm eggs and toxplasmosis, which is a parasitic infection carried by mice. it causes no distress for the cat, but makes people sick and causes serious birthdefects if the mother contracts it while pregnant.

i don't get why leashes shouldn't be allowed? if trained early, cats would take to it just like a dog does. which means either yes or no.

I wasn't that serious... I mean that I think cats are like kings and queens, or should be... it is a reason why they say cats do what they want, and a leash kinds of put a damper on things... Every cat I've seen put on a leash goes nuts, and most just refuse to move until it is taken off.

I guess it has much to do with habbit.

... and Vandal... all though I share your facination of flopping cats: shame on you!
