I always said that I prefer male cats, and female dogs.
No reason for preference of male cats.
Both my boys seem to want more human companionship.
Our little Miss Phoebe is Calico - guess Calico's have real personality issues from what the Vet said when she met her - something like she's gonna give the boys a tough time.
Well, she sure is a cutie. When I hold her, she has to have all her feet pushing against me - she's just now beginning to settle "in" a little ... and, asking for more and more scrubs - maybe after two years she's seeing more of a need for human attention.
I think she does drive our older male a little to the edge, cause he's always after her - think she might be attacking him and running, then all I see is KiKi on top of her when I go to see what all the growing and hissing is about - it's her. She "play fights" on her back - curious that's her favorite defensive move -- usually she can get under the china cabinet where KiKi can't.
Not sure what to contribute her actions to - female, Calico, or just her personality?
Love the differences - they fascinate me.
