Personally, I'm a dog person.

But go ahead, talk kittens if you want. :-)

Oh dear God, it was just a passing comment!


You don't like kittens...

For the record, I have no intention of burning it down I'm just curious if a thread about kittens can survive on it's own.

Judging by my own dog's clumsy interactions with cats, I think they'll do just fine. :-)

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!

A cat 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... I must be a god!

Well, that's because they are gods. Or at least supernatural protectors.

Somewhat like this.

YES! I have a Crystal-Frasier-signed copy of Secrets of Cats. (She did the art.) I've played it once (at PaizoCon 2016). I may play it more in the future.

KITTIES.

Grumpy Cat is my spirit animal.

I continue to be disappointed by the non-release of Kittens of Golarion by Paizo.

Yay, kitties!

I frequently will show this video early in astronomy classes I teach. Often I will introduce it with a brief video to help them understand what they're looking at when they see the beautiful processed images that come from the HST.

We now have rules for Dreamlands' Cats in Pathfinder though :3

Oooh! Just had an awesome character idea. Since cats are supposed to be guardians of the dead, how about a Catfolk Cleric / Inquisitor of Pharasma?

Makes sense.


the original Palace of the Vampire Queen, Dungeon Adventure featured a room on the first level with a madman and his 15, 1 hp House Cats...

Neat idea!

Mine is doubling down on the Ancient Egyptian angle and go Catfolk Shaman/Inquisitor of Bast with a cat spirit animal.


I've always been more of a cat person than a dog person, but I have two pooches I rescued and they are the loves of my life. I wish I could have a cat so bad, though. But one of the dogs really doesn't like cats and I don't want it to be hurt. But if I outlive my dogs I'll not replace them with more dogs but with a cat or two.

I, for one, welcome a thread devoted to our awesomeness!

Now bow down and bring cat toys!

I think it might be reasonable for Catfolk Clerics / Inquisitors to have circumstance bonuses to Intimidate vs. Undead. Perhaps Charisma modifier plus 1/2 Character Level. Thoughts?

Or a multi-denominational order of paladins, clerics, inquisitors, monks, etc. Maybe a PrC or "divine order" feats where, say a paladin of Pharasma, could get a Bast-granted/-themed ability(s) and vice-versa for other deities? Not polytheism--everyone still has a specific patron deity--but all the deities and their followers in the org work collectively toward their common goal.

Perhaps thematic-based bonuses? Or a feat with racial prerequisites?

But how do cats play RPGs?

I can't see them having enough focus, attention, or energy to be able to sit at a table for four-five hours?

But they'll lay in the middle of the gaming table swatting rolling dice for that long.

You must have some really patient cats.

Mine just give me this look, say "Pet me, love me, feed me" then wander off if they don't feel their needs are being met...

If you like watching cats and kittens, I highly recommend the Kitten Academy YouTube channel! They foster momcats and their kittens until they're old enough to go up for adoption :)

Don't forget about Prowler At World's End Bloodragers, they and their spirits are very anti-Evil.

Spirit wrote:
The favored locations for these spirits are altars, churches, sacred groves, and shrines, and their taboo requires the prowler to strongly revere nature and attempt to either destroy or incapacitate evil wherever he encounters it.

They play dragons, of course.

I was running a High Fantasy campaign (using home brew rules) and the PCs had an encounter with a Dragon. I put their miniatures on the table, lifted up my reasonably large cat (she was part Maine Coon) onto the table and pointed out that she was about the right size, proportionately, to them.

I don't think that I have EVER seen those PCs be quite so polite to a NPC :-) :-)


Giant tortie attacks are common at my table...

"Oh gods NO, the mega dire cat of doom has returned...!"

My older normally sedate adult Maine Coon would turn into smack-happy spaz the first couple times we tried to play Shadowrun 4e around her. As soon as someone had to roll a large dice pool, she'd come flying out of her hiding spot slapping them around like crazy. When I picked her up, she'd grab one or two d6s in her mouth before I stuck her in the bedroom and closed the door.

If we have my Chessex megamat on the floor our Beagle feels compelled to lay in the middle of it and rolls over for a tummy rub.

I don't think there's anything in the universe that can resist a Beagle begging for a tummy rub.

That seems to be how you can tell if you have a cat or dog. A dog exposing its tummy wants tummy rubs. A cat exposing its tummy wants only 1d3 ⇒ 1 tiny rubs, and then it is biteys and kickies time.

I have a black male, not sure how old he is. Not sure because he showed up nearly starving to death on my back porch one day. I fed him and he ended up ridiculously friendly, so he was obviously someone's pet at some point. After a trip to the vet he became an indoor cat. Hasn't been outside in years - doesn't seem to care. He does this stupid thing where... eh, easier to show than tell. He lays like that all the time. It's embarrassing.

While I agree that's usually the case, one of my cats (the weirdo I just posted about above) loves tummy rubs. He's very dog-like in his behaviors actually.

Back in Second Ed. D&D, my cousin and I had a running joke that anyone who played a 1st-level wizard could be easily dispatched by a standard housecat. They had a THAC0 of 20, an AC of 6, 3 attacks, and could do up to 5 damage in one round. So the joke was it wasn't a joke at all.

He is remembering his early years as a famed dancer, and is secretly working on new choreography to stage a revival.

Awesome, thank you so much for putting that song in my head again.


Is this thread actually safe for me?

I mean other than the fact I'm, for all intents and purposes, immortal should I even be here?

My tubby black male cat (Pitch) sprawls on the floor in that same way as your boy Generic Villain...and is also very dog like.

Weird

Our cats do it all the time, we call it cat-sizing, after which they'll float around on the carpet like that. (I swear every time I look at them they'll have moved slightly.)

We love our dog and all my brothers have cats, so no big deal. :-)

Plus he loves to bat s&*% around like a cat, he'll even try to get his dog friends to do it and they just give him weird looks. :-)

Guenwhyvar;grumpy old black female hates all other animals. Used to be my little ninja until she got fat on me. When she was young we only had one other dog and no other cats. She would attack any exposed flesh hanging out, especially when your shirt and pants would separate when you sat in a chair and couldn't see it coming. She secretly enjoys being petted but only when in a room alone with one human and no other animals. (from a friend's litter of barn cats)
Twilight; fat male orange tabby, has had a bladder stone, teeth pulled and now has thyroid issues. Still one of the most loveable lap cats ever, loves his tummy rubs and being brushed. Loves any ladies that visit. He is 100% my wife's cat. She swore we would never have any cats. (stray wondered up to our porch, showed up every morning and evening at the "twilight" hour for a month)
Tink; little grey and white tabby with a bright pink nose. We found her while I was out back burring a ferret. She followed us to the porch and when we went inside she knocked on the door and cried to come in. So in she came and never left. She likes to lay on her back and do what we call her "dead tink bug" move, to get tummy rubs. Won't leave me alone while making my tuna for my lunch.
All three are indoor cats, they love to sit in open windows and will walk up to the door when it is open but only Twilight will venture out, and then only to the porch. Twilight is the only cat I have ever had that will come to the call of his name and he announces himself as he runs to you, meowing his fool head off the whole way. Though he also announces himself when he enters a room as well.

Ah, Shadowrun. The only game I know that requires more than 10D6.

So true. Half that if the cat is male, minimum zero. I had this kitten once, where lying on his back was simply an invitation for a fight.

I 'cat' my cats when they really want pettings and belly rubs and such.

They get a couple, then I stop, then reluctantly pet them when they force their head under my hand to be pet'd, then stop again and give them a look like 'what?'.

This usually results in a very confused response from the cats.

But... but... you're supposed to pet me until *I* tell you to stop, two-legger!
