Why did you pick a cat over a dog?

People don't listen to Bob Brenchley. Walking a cat on a leash and harness
is ok.

Ok, I've seen the odd rabbit on a lead, and a few goats. But a cat?
Perish the thought.

Didn't - have 2 labradors and 2 cats and love them all equally.
Incidentally, Morris the Cat thinks he's a labrador. He came to us as a
very gentle, trusting 4 month old who must have had a pretty good life
before the shelter because he had NO fears and no bad habits. Morris hangs
with the dogs, eats with them out of their dishes even, washes their faces,
goes for walks with us in the woods behind our home and stays right along
with us all the way. Lightning, the new guy cat is being trained by Morris
on how to act like a dog. Max and Cally, the labs, were very wary of this
weird cat who liked them so much. But now they all love and respect each
other (a few claws in the nose helps in the respect department). Cats are
just so darned entertaining!!

Moronic posting style corrected. You have not been charged for this

the same mistake again.

Not for the cat it isn't.

HAHAHA.... love that. i'm a cat person. my fiancee is a cat person.
but we couldn't afford a cat. then one day, in about 0 degree temps (a few
months ago), behind where we work, there was a kitten fending for it's life
trying to eat scraps. our truck crew (unloads the trucks) were being SO
kind and throwing water at her, and kicking her cause she kept trying to
come in the docking bay because it was warmer.

my fiancee clocked out of work an hour early, rescued her, brought her home,
and now she's the heathen she was always meant to be.

plus, wait......don't cats pick YOU? not you picking the cat?

Thanks so much for taking her in! Hope you'll be rewarded for that by
skittles and her friends!

Thank you for caring and adopting the kitten. She was very lucky to find
such a caring home.

What? A Cat? They are not dogs you know so stop suggesting they can be
treated like dogs.


My cousin has a cat that loves her leash!!!!! She will go get it just to go
out for a walk. I think it is the cat's decision on whether or not it wants
to be put on a leash. As we all know, the feline will do as it pleases, no
matter what we think.

Cats-V-Dogs

A dog thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide
me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me....
They must be Gods!
