Did I really overreact? (sorry, kinda long) - Page 2

post #31 of 39
I wonder if she would have done the thing had it been a child? Or how would she feel if you did that to one of her dogs?

Thanks for the support guys. I wanted to update you, I talked to a few of my friends today, one of them actually called me to apologize because she felt bad about the message she left (and it wasn't one of the bad ones). The other one however kind of surprised me. She's the one I've known since middle school. I explained the whole situation to her and after I finished she was still saying stuff about how I value my cats more then other human beings and so on. . . Maybe it's not too suprising if I think about it, she has a dog that she got about a year ago now and it lives in a crate (which is mine btw, she was supposed to be borrowing it for a few weeks) almost full time because she is never home to take care of it. . . . I just don't get people!

If anyone hit my cat, they would be asked to leave, then told not to come back.
Hubby's friend did that once, needless to say. he's not welcome here.
Everyone who calls themselves my friend, know and understand that my animals are my life, and anyone who threatens them are in alot of trouble. My animals can't defend themselves really, so that's where I come in. If you're big enough to hit or mess with my cat, you're big enough to leave.

Good job! Anyone who calls themselves your friend, should understand and respect what your animals mean to you.

We DO have some friends who have a large lab/mix dog that they got stuck with when their daughter dumped it on them. She was bad about jumping up on people, and when she did it to me, I gently stepped on her back paws, which is a way to train them not to do it. But I showed them what to do, and how to do it without hurting her, and they used the trick to train her to quit that habit.

The unfortunate thing about cats is that they WILL go to the one person in the room who doesn't like cats, and try to make up to them. Some theorize that this is a defense mechanism in cats...and politicians.

From what I understand, they go to the one person because they don't make eye contact with the cat which is considered "good manners" in the cat world.
Of course, who can figure out what is truely going on in a cat's mind. My mom HATED cats, and they would always find her and drive her crazy. I personally think they take it as a challenge. "You don't like me???? Well, I'll make you LOVE me!"

One person I know who knows Bill Clinton personally told me Bill was like that; he'd always go and concentrate on the person in the room who didn't like him. (We lived in Hot Springs, Arkansas, while he was governor there.) I have since heard that that is a common factor in "people" people, you know, salespeople, etc.

You, and your kitties, are better off without friends like that.

No, I will not tolerate anyone being mean to animals whether they are "friends" or not.

And if these so called "friends" took the side of your friend who hit your cat, I think I'd be finding me some new friends!
