Well... this was cute...

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
We had an emergency repair man come up last night because there was a leak in our wall.

He went to work trying to shut off the pipes in our back bathroom (thank goodness we don't use it), and this is the conversation that I overheard.

8-Bit: meow?

Him: I don't like cats. Shoo...

8-Bit: MEOW! Burrr? ::::he rolled onto his back::::

Him: Well, that was kind of cute.

8-Bit: Burrr...

Him: You've got a soft belly. Okay, as long as you don't get in my way you can watch.

8-bit converted him huh? I think most people that "hate" cats just have never been around one, or had one bad experience. How could anybody resist that cutie! Now, did 8-bit just watch, or did he try to "help"?

OMG, I love it!!!!!

We have two spokes-cats as well. Scotty does the belly thing, and Oscar just headbutts everyone and chirps.

The only one they haven't converted is my grandma Alford, but she claims she's "afraid" of cats. I think she just doesn't want to give in. I bet whenever she visits and no ones around, she's all gooshy with them.

8-Bit is a boy... as well as my other two. I live in an apartment with four men.

He just watched for once. I was shocked!

AWWW, that was sooo cute! Why is it that cats always pick out the 'cat hater' of the group, and just try to win them over? It's sooo cute!

What's going on with that boy of yours!? Is he growing up or something? Being all Mr. Hero, now being nice to a repairman...

Do you think the change has more to do with the new apartment or the new Dr. in your life?

I think that 8-Bit is growing up. He has a flock to attend to (Scratch and Dr. Claw), so he's busy.

He's also started curling up in our laps, and purring much more often.

How sweet. Of course if you confront the repairman he would never admit to it.

Good for 8-bit!

He probably wants you to think he's growing up & he's really planning some massive attack!

Maybe he realised that:
a) he had an important job to do (convert the repairman into a cat lover) and
b) the repairman didn't have any sandwiches in his toolbox...

Awwwwwww how sweet!!!!! He sounds as though he's very happy Maybe the addition of Dr Claw has just balanced things out, and keeping Bit too busy to be naughty?

Well done, 8-Bit!

...undoubtedly translates to something like "YOU HAVEN'T MET ME. HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU DON'T LIKE ME! I'm cute, aren't I?..."

Proving once again that people who think they hate cats just haven't really met one -- or had a bad experience.

Awww! Bless!

Yeah for 8-Bit!!! It sounds like he's becoming a good cat...maybe he'll make up for everything he's put his meowmy through so far.

Forest is our spokescat. He's just so funny with his wobbly gait and friendly ways that NOBODY can resist him...even avowed long-time cat haters.

That is great!!
