Wow that cat deserves medals and big meals!!!

Both cats and dogs can be aggressive, it all depends on the owners who should be responsible to take a good care of their pets and prevent them from attacking people and protected wildlife. There are several human death / injury cases caused by dog attacks here in Australia. A lot of native animals are dead because of attacks by feral dogs and cats.

With cats, it depends on the type of cat one has. Some cats like Devon Rex or Siomese cats are very dog like in their interaction with their owners.

My 13 year old niece has recently adopted a cat and now, she wants another one and her dad is really upset about it because my niece keeps her door tightly closed so that the cat wouldn't wake her up too early in the morning. So the cat goes and wakes my brother up and as he travels a lot, whenever he's home, he prefers to get as much sleep as possible. He keeps his door closed too but the cat tends to scratches the door and it wakes him up. The only thing my niece does is she dresses the cat up and posts pictures everywhere.
There's this thing I want to buy, a spraycan of just compressed air, with a sensor on top of it- any time you get close to it it will release a little hiss of compressed air. Cats hate it, and you can leave it next to door or any other areas you want to protect.

I've never encountered a cat that attacked me. Dogs were trying to attack me while I was on bicycle several times, can't even count how many times they were running along and barking at my car. Once even on foot a stray attacked me in the middle of the street and bit my pants and even my leg a little. When I threatened him and he backed off some dumb girls came to the dog's rescue, scolding me for harming the poor mutt (I didn't touch him, just yelled and threatened to kick him). After I continued on my way and got about 15 m away, "doggy" attacked another person.

I love dogs btw (had Giant Schnauzer before), but they're definitely more aggressive than cats on the whole. Cats are more specific in the way they let people touch them and can scratch you if you're doing something they don't like. Cats are also braver than dogs when they are alone. I remember when my dog was chasing them, if cat stands it's ground, dog will just start pretending like he's sniffing the ground and look the other way. Pathetic. :p

My niece actually called me half past midnight last night and talked about her cat the first 20 minutes and I was like 'oy'. Such torture, really. I really think the cats control their owners than the other way because I am not seeing any exception to the rule so far.

Anyway, as a sweet tit for tat, I've started calling my niece 'catlady' and she really hates but I said, tough because you know, that's what you're going become eventually. lmho

Thanks for the tip. I'll let my brother know to buy the spray can or better yet, I will bring one to him. He really needs his sleep.

So did you or didn’t you understand my post?
I wrote it last night before I went to bed, and I’m not sure if I do understand it at this moment.
Well, at first I didn't get it and then I thought you might have meant that if they have the dogs taking care of the babies, then why have babysitters?

I used to shop at Tower Records on the Sunset Strip, which has a cat history.



The building was previously home to "The Classic Cat Strip Club," which was before I lived in Los Angeles.

I will eventually have to kill Mike. He's having too much fun at my expense.

I really don't know if it's everyone's dream but I feel a lot of them actually aren't aware or they are just not passionate about things. So they end of doing the daily grind. I do think it's ridiculous the way we've built our society. If I had kids I would have given them ample time to figure out what they truly wanted without spoiling them of course. I showed very early on signs of the things I really loved doing but my parents both wanted me to finish the typical education and get a job (more so my dad as my Mum thought I'd make a great housewife as she was one) etc. And then things happen in life where you have no control and they tend to take you from one place to another and next thing you know, you are just floating around trying to survive (not financially though that play a part too - but, mostly mentally for me at least).

No, you are not in my personal space and I don't mind sharing at all but it's just so complicated and there are just so many elements to it. I think the way I observed my mum and dad relationship (my dad cheated on my mum and yet, my mum accepted it like an obedient wife - something that I never understood as I am a very just and fair person - though that was her choice I get it) when I was a little girl played a huge part in general. I also feel I am quite intense and impatient in a relationship. I feel I want to be in one and then I go sabotage it. And also, I like my freedom very much and a relationship doesn't really give you that. It also takes up a lot of space that I am not so comfortable with as it doesn't allow creativity. I don't know if it makes any sense to you as you seem to be much more stable and consistent.
But to be fair to your parents, I feel them wanting you to go for higher education was what’s hey thought was best in terms of stability. Youre able fall back upon that if it goes wrong. Do you think you’ll ever end up pursuing that dream? I’m lucky in the fact that my ‘dream’ requires a degree and is recommended to have even more so. I like my creative hobbies here and there, but have never really been interested in doing those as a career.

Do you think your disinterest in the relationship had something to do with your dad?

Edit: Damn. I think I’ve perhaps gone to deep in a thread about hating cats.

Also sorry for the late reply. I’ve been on holiday

Hey, I don't hate cats. That's a bit too strong, isn't it? Just don't like them as much as I like other animals. It's just something about them that rubs me the wrong way.

My dad maybe partly responsible (as it showed early on that perhaps men aren't trustworthy). I mean my dad wouldn't be the first to cheat on his wife and it's just normal these days or so it feels. Even women are cheating on their husbands far more than ever.

I feel if a relationship is going to be based on trust, then it really should reflect that. If one of them feels otherwise then they should be open about it and see how the other reacts to it, because you really don't want to hurt their feelings, especially when you've made a vow. I can forgive but I won't be able to live with the same person mostly because I'd lose interest and if the interest is gone, then there's no point keeping the relationship.

Relationships are also a lot of work given that I've experienced both and I can safely say that I am far more happy as a single person as it allows me to pursue a lot more other things that I wasn't able to do when in relationship. I also don't like the idea of getting attached to the whole family when I only want to be with that person but I suppose that comes with it.

It's just no longer for me and I think that's alright because what matters the most is whether I am happy or not and I am.

I pursue my dreams in my spare time and that's a start. It may become something bigger or may become my next phase of life. Not sure however if it's waiting for me to decide or I am waiting for it to happen to me. Time will tell.

My parents did the best they could, absolutely but I feel I should have changed guards at some point. But then again, I didn't have any control over some of the big things in life. It goes in circle, you see.

Dogs appear to be more intelligent as they can be trained to be very valuable service animals to the disabled.
I have never seen a service cat.
:(

It’s the other way around. You will have to provide her majesty the services she requires.

Daria and her cat were in a great mood until they read your cat-hating thread.

Progression of Daria's moods as she reads Zara's anti-cat rants:



At least you are creative in your expressions. :p

Cats can look really mean. Do women prefer cats more than men?
