I love cats and I am slightly miffed that I can't have a cat in this apartment. And now even more so, when I found out that even the internet has a cat: :roll:

I clicked on the link while proof-listening. Suddenly I heard a strange rumbling sound in the recording. Oh - it's the website! :roll:

OK I played with that for far too long and now I have fur all over me.
But gosh, I feel wonderful.

Is it weird that I feel the need to snuggle with a cat I don't have anymore? Here kitty, kitty!

It's nice to live in Japan where I can go to cat-cafes any time! :D
Cheers,

It's not a cat unless it's knocking my eyeglasses off the night table.

I love this. Sadly all the cats I've befriended have passed away so I've been missing having a kitty around. When I need a smile and inspiration I can go to this page. :)

Are you able to foster? That's what I will likely do when I am kitty-less.

Hello, tonight the family cat escaped again, but I opened the front door and it returned. Has any one ever experience this as well?

I am in exactly the same boat! My apartment is too small for a tigger of my own, and I can't wait for the day I move into a new place and can get my own furball.

I found a solution for my overwhelming need to snuggle though: volunteering at my local animal shelter!

We used to have a cat the escaped all the time. he was supposed to be indoor, but spent a lot of time getting chased outside, we usually caught him within a few minutes or hours, but once he disappeared for a couple months. we thought he was gone for good by then but he showed up, rather worse for wear, but we were so happy! Eventually he passed away of old age, but not for a long time after that. We had another cat who was so painfully shy we never got her spayed, and one day she got out and came back pregnant, she got spayed after that! Right now I have my kitty my brother has his, and then we have the family cat!

I am so glad your furry friend came back, hopefully it stays home now!

I do not know what my cat will think of this as she is not in my room right now, but my dog is very anxious! he keeps whining in his corner, while he is all curled up, funny thing is he is a big dog 100ish lb. Shepherd cross.

One of the great joys in life is to convince a cat born wild to trust you.
