This is why I love my cats.  No matter what I do- stressed out, drunk, in a bad mood, etc.- I will never be the biggest jerk in our household.

Mine loves to just knock stuff off the sink, razors, brushes, what ever. She seems to do it with intent, cause she'll look at me, knock the stuff off, and then look at me again, as if she was making a point.

It is all cute till the GF's cell phone went into the toilet.

One of ours will do that.  She'll just keep nudging something with her nose until it falls off the table/counter/whatever.  We have to be careful not to leave drinking glasses unattended.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: My youngest one just unrolled the toilet paper the other day

/not sure I found that amusing


The cats/TP bits reminded me of a cat my sister used to own. Bear would get in a bad mood and head for the upstairs bathroom (they had 1 1/2 baths), grab the end of the TP roll in his mouth and start running up and down the stairs with it. If it was one of his lucky days and someone had left the downstairs bathroom door open, he would also decorate the place with that as well. I don't know if that's better or worse than their other cat, Oreo, catching live garter snakes and bringing them inside to my sister. Sis didn't appreciate such presents.

I don't put toilet paper on the toilet paper thingy anymore. There's a towel rod above the toilet that is apparently too high for my cat to be bothered with.

Also, the toilet lids are ALWAYS kept closed.

And "no apparent reason" is reason enough for a cat. Mine bit my foot the other day. Yeah, she got a time-out for that.

Have fun all alone in the bathroom all by yourself with your litter box and a roll of toilet paper that you probably could reach but are too lazy to.

Such punishment. I'm so cruel. She looked at me liked I was throwing her in a dungeon but I bet as soon as I closed the door she laid down on the rug and fell asleep.

I think my cat's vocabulary consists of 3 words and those are 1) Food, 2) her name, and 3) GODDAMMIT!

I forgot to mention - those springy door-stop things?

Yeah, I removed all of them and hid them in a drawer. I feel bad about depriving her, but she only seemed to like to play with them when I was trying to sleep.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I'm pretty sure my youngest one thinks his name is GODDAMNYOUF*CKINGCAT!


The drama teacher at a my junior high had a cat that lived in the auditorium. It's name was "Kitty, Dammit!"

Sometimes I wonder if my cat understands words at all or just picks up from my tone or the context.

I have to load the toilet paper so it goes under and not over.  Otherwise my cats like to unspool it.

My black male cat seems to be in the mood for love lately, despite lacking the necessary equipment.  He keeps grabbing my female cat by the scruff of the neck, while she flattens her ears and looks at him like "Are you serious?"

SilentStrider: Suddenly very glad I have dogs, not cats.


The thing is, as soon as you turn your back on a dog, it will steal your food and scarf it down before you even know what happened. And it will sit there pretending like it did nothing wrong. Or maybe it will put on a very guilty expression that just begs you to forgive it.

Either way, your bacon - or your steak - or your hamburger - or even your ice cream is gone in 6 seconds (not a typo - yes, gone in 6 seconds, not 60 seconds).

Cats cannot and will not do that.. They'll do other bad things, but my cat has never stolen my food.

Also, my cat has never gotten so excited that it just pissed on the floor because it couldn't help itself. I've seen dogs do that.

And my cat has never humped my leg because it was horny, but maybe that's because she's a female cat.

My dogs are smart enough to not steal my food. In fact, we avoid giving them human food if at all possible. Accidents have happened (like the cocker spaniel getting a big piece of ham my wife dropped on the floor), but otherwise, no.
The cocker used to have a peeing problem when she was a puppy. She outgrew that before she hit her first year.
We used to have a cat (used to meaning he now lives with my father). When we had him and just the cocker spaniel, he used to think it was fun to sit on top of the couch, wait for her to walk by, and leap down, pounce, and run off.
On the other hand, when I get home, the springer thinks jumping up and smacking my crotch is a perfectly acceptable greeting. She doesn't quite to seem to understand that my being doubled over in pain is a bad thing.

I guess what I'm trying to say is... I love my dogs and sometimes miss having a cat.
And also I'm incoherent because I need sleep.

My cat likes me too. She hates being alone. But when she gets playful she turns into a little psycho-beast. Usually her wrath is directed at a tin-foil ball or this Sesame Street stuffed animal I got for her, but sometimes those aren't sufficient and I just happen to get her attention at the wrong time.

I think it comes down to a ridiculously strong predator instinct, so if there's nothing suitable to kill and you're around...well, sucks to be you!

She seriously creeps me out sometimes. It'll be dark in the house and I hear (or sense) something and look over and she's in stalker-mode staring at me with murder in her eyes while "hiding" in or around something that breaks up her silhouette. I always tell her "If you attack me I'm going to throw you against the wall", which seems to break the spell she's under, but it may just be a ruse to put me back at ease because she'll often do a drive-by on me a little later. She hasn't done any serious damage yet, but I wouldn't put it past her to try and kill me. She'd feel bad about it later of course, but still relish the memory of having done it.

Cats are psychopaths. And sociopaths. And so ridiculously freaking adorable when they're not being either of those two things.

There's a managed feral cat program at my school and tonight was my night to do the feeding rounds.  One of them is a pretty sociable black kitty (she'll tolerate being picked up and held, which is rare for a feral), but she gives these weird little bites out of... excitement?  Affection?  She'll turn her head quickly and clamp down on my hand in a grab-and-pull movement.  Crazy cat.

That's actually a smart thing to do.

If you offer your pet food off your own plate they're going to ask for it every chance they get.

The only food I've shared with my cat is tuna and sure enough whenever I open a can of tuna she expects her share.

She would probably like chicken too, but I've never shared that with her and so she generally leaves me alone when I eat chicken.

Our cat loved deli fried chicken and it was the only thing she'd actually beg for. She was usually rewarded with a few small slivers.

I, too, own a "nibbler." Adopted from the Humane Society, it's an orange marmalade cat that likes to just set teeth - not a bite, mind you, more of a nibble - on you when she gets excited. Almost an extension of the urge to rub her face on you when you're petting her (she often does that two or three times, and then nibbles.) Harmless, but can be startling to visitors.

CatSB time. There's a white tomcat in our neighborhood - no collar, not fixed, tough as nails, stands his ground to any dog. I determined I was going to befriend this cat and although it took a good 6 months, eventually he'd come over when he saw me and tolerate a short neck & head rub. When he'd had enough he would start to walk away, then turn back like he'd forgot something... and lightly bite me on the hand, just hard enough to leave 2 marks, before continuing on his rounds. It was kinda like "Hey man, thanks for the rub but I gotta keep up appearances and all." I realize now I'll never be his friend, just a sidekick, and I'm OK with that.
