I was washing dishes yesterday when one of the kittens came to me wanting some attention. Seeing that I wasn't giving any, the kitten then crawled up my leg, then up my back and onto my shoulder and rubbed it's face against mine. After a bit, it wanted down, so it worked it's way down from my shoulder down my back and then it got to my belt. The little brat was stuck and couldn't figure out how to get past that point, so it crawled back up my back and mewed at me, then it tried again, and then a third time. I gave in, dried my hands and picked it up and set it down on the floor.

Only when they're young do most cats climb their staff people. It's adorable, albeit painful.


~grins~ My older cats still sometimes try, but I tend to stop them. But several of them do like me to hold them.

Blue, my newest who can rocket around the room in a single jump but hasn't quite figured how to propel herself upwards can scale me in 2 seconds.

I was fostering a semi-feral young adult queen last fall. She never even started to trust me. Mostly she crept about and hid, but when it came time to corral her to take her back, she proved very acrobatic. 4' standing jump up and over me as I bend to grab her. Leap from the floor to the top shelf in the closet.

Finally got her when she made a jump for the window - stunned herself for a moment on the glass and I got a blanket over her.
You really don't get to see what a cat can do when they're just playing. When they're really terrified, on the other hand ...

Unlike some others, she didn't cut me open though - I couldn't get close enough.

Aww, sorry to hear that.

Blue isn't feral, but she is part Bobcat.

I've got two... Xena, a very large (16 lbs and not fat) solid black shorthair, and Trillian, a rather small (7 lbs) mute calico shorthair.

Xena is dumb as a post and never got the memo that cats are supposed to be graceful. She's also afraid of mice and the outdoors. But she's a really sweet lap cat, and loves to be picked up and carried around.

Trillian is skittish and doesn't like to be picked up at all, but will hop into your lap if you're sitting down. She can also make amazing leaps that I didn't think cats could normally do... like leap from the floor to the top of a wardrobe closet that's six feet tall!

They hate each other.

I mean, they really hate each other.

The mostly avoid each other: Xena lives in the basement and first floor of my house; Trillian lives on the second floor. The staircase and landing are no-man's land. But when they do get into a tussly, Xena pretty much always backs down.

She's such a wimp. But a very cuddly wimp.


My Bengals very often made 6' vertical leaps with ease when they were younger. Now that the spouse has gone and piled mountains of stuff into our poor house, they get more exercise role-playing as mountain goats. ;)

Blue is the same, she doesn't parkour around the house so much as flail. All over the place.


The Ninjago Lego movie will have a colossal kitty in it.
Lego movies are already worth seeing. Now it's worth seeing twice.
^w^


Our deaf white ninja cat Zoe (rest her soul, she has passed on) was insane about her leaps, she loved to jump to the top of our doors without a running start, just from standing. For a deaf cat, she was REALLY stealthy too, ninja cats, there are indeed out there. (she was also really good at pretending to be a cat statue, and being pure white, occasionally people thought she WAS a statue, also hilarious!)

People who say that cats don't care have simply never owned cats.

NobodysWife had emergency surgery on Tuesday morning, and returned, sore and exhausted, yesterday afternoon.

Everything seemed normal until we went to bed.

Nefret, our little fluffernutter ragamuffin, has settled in with NobodysWife. For nearly 12 hours now. When NobodysWife moves or stirs, Nefret purrs loudly and pushes against her, putting her back to sleep and getting her the rest she so desperately needs. (For reference, normally by the time I'm up and about at 5:30 am Nefret is desperately demanding to be let outside, so this behavior is VERY unusual for her...)

Good little healer kitteh!


Several years ago, Tigger, the kitten that my mother and I saved from my dead brother's apartment, died. One day, I came home from work to find her lying on the floor just inside my room with a broken spine just above her hips. Apparently she tried to jump off my bed and landed wrong. She died the following morning. My fondest memory of her was, when she was still a kitten, coming out of my mother's room carrying a skein of knitting yarn larger than her.

Damn skippy. If your cats feel that you love them, they almost always love you back, each in their own way.

Ours get upset when we transition from a discussion to an argument, begging for us to calm down and stop, loudly. We know it's bad when Goober (the daddy cat) gets involved as he is the mellowest of the four.

Somewhat to our amusement Goober is the most sensitive about noticing when one of us is unwell, sometimes before we really know it ourselves.

Thanks, everyone. I'm over the pain, but you should have seen her with the yarn. I wish I had a photo of that. :)

Oww, cats never let you get the funniest most cute pics!

Zoe, when I got her for my wife as an Christmas present (she picked her out) the first day we had her, we already had two other full grown cats, a half-russian blue mix (Bastion) and Quinn, an american short hair tabby both go to chase her, she leaps perfectly between them, they bonk heads from a running start, looked confused and stunned, Zoe proves she is a ninja even as a kitten, grooms herself in victory!

Again, deaf all white cat ninja...it was priceless.

Tigger might have been Italian. She absolutely loved the taste of pasta sauce.

Glad to hear you are doing alright John. I know for sure it can take awhile to get over something like that. I had a similar situation with one of my cats.

I'll spoiler it just so people can avoid reading it easily, it's sad.

Sad story:

Seriously... you've been warned.

I came home from work one day and found Tuli laying on the floor near the back door and didn't even move when I walked in. I immediately knew something was wrong because she normally walks over to get petted before flopping over on the ground to get belly rubs.

Grabbed the wife and headed to the only 24 hr emergency vet in town. A few hours later, I stand next to the table petting her as I tell the vet to put her out of her misery. We later learned that she died from an abnormally shaped heart that caused fluid buildup. Thankfully I had a picture of her saved on my phone when she was laying with our other cat, Lily.

I've had pets die, buried them, watched the vet euthanize them... whatever, and it never hit me really hard. I was a kid for all those and never had a deep bond with the pet.

Tuli picked us out really. We came in, she demanded to get attention from inside her cage while the other cats just lazed about. We took her home and kept her and the other cat separated so Lily could slowly get used to her. Tuli lived in our bedroom for a few weeks while Lily had the house to herself. After that they got along alright.

Tuli ended up claiming me as her human and I provided a good warm lap to lay on with pets and belly rubs included. It worked out great.

Since she passed we got another cat, a little kitten that has grown into a cat sized kitten, named Waffle. He is a lovable little spaz that enjoys tormenting the other cat, running around the house like crazy, and laying on my lap.

That was tough to type out. Hopefully by sharing it I can heal some.


Thank you.


I have unfortunately had to bury 7 ferrets and three cats, I am not a man given to displays of emotion, but, I cried each time. My pets are family.

Thanks for sharing Wraith...could not have been easy to say the least

Thanks GM_B.

I usually have a very firm hold on my emotions but my memories of Tuli always elicit a few tears from if not outright crying.


I know the feeling Wraith...boy do I ever...

This is Tigger, the cat my mother and I rescued as a kitten from my dead brother's apartment. She died about 3-4 years ago. :(

Thanks to THIS, cats are now a PC race for Pathfinder.

Not cat people. Not large wild cats and alpha predators like lions and tigers and bobcats. House cats.

Thank you, Sandy Petersen and your take on the Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder!

:)

When I have a fever, my cat thinks I am wonderful to lie on. I am warmer than usual and don't move much.

Go healer kitt... well, you know.

HAH. Just Sunday I was running a quest in Neverwinter Nights involving a group of dream-voyaging PCs hopping on a boat crewed by Dreamlands humans and Cats of Ulthar, bound for Celephais. What lucky timing.

When I am sick, my cats bring me their toys, and pile them around my head like offerings. :)


Awww! I guess they know who the Alpha cat is.

In my case it is "Get well soon. We need the cat pans cleaned."
