    Once I can get a better job and get my own place I want to get a cat again. I've been around them pretty much my entire life and I miss having the craziness that a cat brings.

    My mom had a tortoise shell Siamese that was a member of the family. That cat was really smart. She'd get seriously upset if she was around me and my brothers fighting and would meow for us to stop. She lived to be 19 which is great for a cat that was indoor/outdoor the whole time.

    I pretty much had the same cat all through my childhood into my late teens. We didn't buy him or anything, he just showed up outside our house one day -- and the preceding three days, after my dad tried to chase him off -- and wouldn't go away. So we took him in.

    Now, when I say he was house trained, I mean we never once had to buy a litter box. When he had to go, he scratched at the door and we let him out. When he was done, he explored the neighborhood a bit, and returned home in like an hour (again, he'd scratch at the door and we'd let him back in). We lived in a suburban area, so all my neighbors knew him and were cool with him patrolling the cul-de-sac.

    One time, when I was about 12 or 13, he went missing for like a week. He had gotten into the habit of taking naps in the bed of my neighbor's pick-up truck, and I'm pretty sure the neighbor didn't think to check for the cat that morning before driving off to work four miles away.

    Anyway, I'm getting really worried because he's never been away this long. After about a week, I'm outside my house playing wiffle ball or something when I turn around and see my cat strolling up, just covered in dirt and grime, around the mouth of the cul-de-sac. I shout his name (Pumpkin -- he was orange with red stripes and I was five when I named him), and he looks up, sees me, and bolts right for me.

    It was a moment.

    Roommate got two olderish cats (2 and 8, roughly) that are pissers. I like cats much less when they piss. Considerably less.

    I once had a cat that went missing for a few days. It turned out she had fallen asleep in a drawer that had been closed by someone who didn't realise.

    She managed to hold her pee in the entire time.

    Looking back, it's crazy that he basically had no injuries. Just dirt.

    I like to think he embarked on a series of crazy cat misadventures on his way home.

    But yeah, he was basically the type of cat that, if you were around, he wouldn't leave your side. I remember driving home every day my senior year of high school to the sight of him running toward my car, jumping on my hood and pressing his face against the windshield because he didn't understand the concept of windshields and how they blocked me from petting him.

    The toughest cat I ever had was born a stray, and though she was really friendly she kept the stray mentality when it came to food. She ate a huntsman spider once. (You know that picture of the huge spider hiding behind the clock? One of those.)

    Another time she caught a mouse and my dad tried to distract her with some food so he could dispose of it, so with an almighty CHOMP she bit the mouse's body off, and its head and tail fell to the ground in perfect synchronisation.

    Even when she got very old and very arthritic, if she saw a mouse she would pounce on it with blinding speed and make it disappear.

    Bits do you know how your cat is to people with allergies?

    I've heard russian blues are lower allergenic but was wondering if you have seen it.

    big dogs are so much cooler than little dogs (newfoundland vs chihuahua)

    also maine coons are the best cat or at least very unlikely to be psycho

    its natures way of telling us that large fluffy pets are the best kind

    I am now imagining that that cat is called Whisky or Bourbon or something alcohlic!

    Also @Fire%20Truck I have never owned rats myself but I've handled a few belonging to friends and my god they were all so good with strangers

    I am actually pretty allergic to cats, and I get the sniffles/start sneezing if she is all up in my face as she is wont to be. my brother is also allergic to cats and he seems less affected by her than by other cats, so I think it depends on the severity of the allergy.
