  1. I already have two cats, thanks Month. One of them even likes to cuddle.

    I’m not watching POI until it’s done, then I can do all my sobbing and sniffling and such all at once. Something tells me I’m going to need to stock up on Kleenex ultra soft.

    1. Me, neither. I’m recording it, since I’m in a house where no one else has watched it. I don’t want to explain it while I”m watching it, or hear that it’s too much shooting, etc. So when I see the PoI reviews, I avert my eyes and cover my ears and sing LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU. Until I’ve watched them.

  2. I’m not allowed to adopt any more cats. I’ve got three indoors (two rescued from my yard, one adopted from a local shelter), and two feral/semi-feral outdoors (part of a Trap-Neuter-Release program) who are almost as spoiled as the indoor cats.

    Although, I have to say that my lottery-winning dreams tend to be more in line with setting up a cattery than buying a mansion.

    1. I have similar “retirement” type dreams of buying land with a barn that gets turned into a home for any and all cats.

  3. We had cats with dogs for a long while. Then as they and the dogs passed on and we added more dogs, we didn’t add cats, and now I have three that would probably chase them, so I can’t. But I loved them. Wolfie was the last dog we had that was fine with cats.

    They’re so lovely. I’d get another one in a nano-second if Veronica wasn’t such a diva about her personal space; she’s not even sure she likes Mona and Milton.

      1. Judy–I live in a place with coyotes too. My cats just don’t go outside. You don’t have to give up cats, just indoor/outdoor cats.

  4. Well no cats, but 2 extra dogs this weekend so lots of cuddle time. Now I just need an extra arm so no dog is left un-pet. (un-petted?)

  5. I have 2 indoor cats and a feral one I feed. One of my indoor ones needs to have surgery Monday to clean out an abscess on his paw. Of course that means nothing to eat after midnight on Sunday. I predict a revolt.

    Cat related, I highly recommend a free and addicting game called Neko Atsume. You buy things to put out in your virtual yard to collect cats.

  6. My Siamese Lindoro puts his ears back just like that when he wants to be picked up and it isn’t happening as fast as he wants. I have have explained that he needs to sit at my feet and gaze up with a sad, hopeless expression like Aubrey. The ears back just does not translate to “I am a sweet baby”. Although no one is getting to many hugs today because I am busy rereading Going Postal for the book club on Monday.

  7. I’m living on a bit of an island for the summer, so there little traffic. I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep the cat indoors with the dog going in and out, I just try to get him in for the night. It can be a bit like having a kid home from college. He’ll be out all night, come in around 4 a.m., eat, sleep like a log all day, and then go out again. He’s a quite attractive tuxedo, he looks great in the green grass. Also, he bring home little trophies and leaves them on the welcome mat.

    1. The welcome mat would be lovely.

      Mine brings his in through my bedroom window. He also has a special, Loud, call to announce them. – mostly very large bugs, lots of feral cat competition and he is very well fed.

  8. I love cats. I want a cat. I miss having a cat. I miss cuddling and hugging a cat.

    Husband dislikes cats. Strongly dislikes.

    Alas…no cats 🙁

      1. Unfortunately, until I can figure out how to make the kind of money he makes, fairly important.

        Of course, if I had a really bomb cat and a paying instagram account…

        j/k

      2. Here’s hoping your husband comes to understand how wonderful cats are! My husband and his whole family are cat people. Among us all at one point we had 12 cats in the family. Sadly about half have passed and even worse, none have been added.

  9. I had five. Lost one a year and a half ago. Got another one a few months later (not my idea, I swear). Lost another one March 1st. The one I adopted isn’t getting along with 2 of the three others and I may have to give her up (to a lovely woman who is a friend of a friend). Angus, my yellow guy, has had an eye issue since February that seems to be resistant to all the stuff they’ve tried on it. (Probably some form of a virus, and of course, he’s the nervy one, so putting goop in his eye 3x a day has been Not Fun for both of us.)

    So lots of ups and downs with cats around here. Still couldn’t imagine my life without them. Lots of hugging.

  10. As I am constantly being reminded, 3 cats in a house with 2 people are enough. Or more than enough. The only time I have lived without feline companionship was the 4 years in a college dorm.

  11. I had a cat while growing up and when I moved out my Mother sent me a letter that said, “After 35 years something has come between your father and me and it is YOUR cat!” Evidently he decided that the warmest place to sleep in the winter was between my parents and they were too tenderhearted to kick him out of the room.

    Now that I have lived alone for decades and could let a cat sleep wherever it pleased, I am too allergic to tolerate it. Sigh….. I miss my 15lb toe warmer.

    And my parents celebrated their 73rd anniversary in November.

  12. Cats are gorgeous. My lungs do not like them at all. My dogs are my life. My cat-lover friends’ lungs don’t like my dogs. It all comes out even in the end. (Mostly, anyway.) The humans end up meeting on neutral ground where no one has to sneeze or wheeze. I have this fantasy that as soon as we leave our houses, our animals are on Instagram complaining about their humans and rejoicing in their free time away from us! They probably play poker, smoke cigars, drink all the beer in the place, then scatter as soon as they hear us coming in. And don’t bother to clean up.

  13. My granddaughter has allergies. Hence the choice of dog breed-Cavapoo. Who goes to the groomers on a regular basis. It works.

  14. Am currently down a cat after losing one of my two in March. Am holding off the new cat decision until August as have a couple of longer trips before then. But I miss having two. Am tempted by the thought of kitten silliness having adopted slightly older kitties the last few times.

  15. Cats are powerful creatures, my friend’s mum fed a stray one biscuits and it now owns them and sleeps on their beds even though it isn’t very cuddly or friendly.

    She fell so in love with them when she went on a holiday that it included volunteering at a cat shelter.

  16. Both of my current cats are cuddly and I love it. There is nothing more relaxing than a cat purring on you, unless it is having a cat get all comfy on your lap, and then giving that little contented sigh.

  17. Ran errands yesterday so the cats had to wait for their huggins until later in the day. Well, that’s not entirely true because Sophie is my alarm cat. She wakes me up every morning, multiple times. There are pettings because as far as she’s concerned, the master bedroom is the pettings room. For Zep, there was lap time in the evening though. Lots of belly rubbing.

    @JenniferNennifer I totally know what you mean by the sigh. It is so awesome.

    Also, cats owners live longer: http://pets.thenest.com/cats-increase-life-expectancy-humans-10783.html and an infographic on the healing power of purring even though it is likely to cause my comment to be put in moderation: http://www.dailyinfographic.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Thehealingpowerofcatpurrs_51367583d074d-640×1653.png

    So, I feel sorry for all who are allergic to or unable to live with a cat. As someone who is allergic to dogs, I understand. I also don’t blame the dogs. Not their fault.

  18. It’s been cat month for me! I put together a self-introduction for school that includes my two kitties being emotional (well, cold, hot and sleepy). And then I get to come home and snuggle them (-:.

    Also, our barn is full of unnamed and unnumbered cats that my husband’s aunt is feeding. There’s a very nice, very well-fed black Tom who is wandering around, m’rowing at the doors and windows, but he’s a bit shy and won’t stay to be petted by Those Without Food.
