That's pretty much what I was going to say!! I'm always amazed at how much love I have for them. It's such an awesome feeling!

... there really WAS a cat person pent up inside me for 31 years despite growing up with dogs all my life!! You know how they say that people resemble the dogs they own? Well, I think I've got a cat personality? I'm finicky and sometimes wanna hiss when people irritate me!!

Just thinking about it, makes me tear up. And I think my cats find my expressions of that love quite embarrassing. I guess sort of like the 7 year old boy, who's a baby one instant and "all grown up" the next, with no time for Mum's mush.

There is nothing better at being a cat than a cat.

That they are all totally unique in their own way.

That they are all special creatures and none of them should ever be taken for granted or treated like "property".

That if I could learn to live with and handle the Demon Cat without getting hurt, then I can learn to handle the real world without getting hurt either.

That individuals (whether feline OR human) come in all shapes, sizes and colors and to be tolerant of those who are different from me - some individuals are nice, some are not so nice but just like me, all have needs. It may be more difficult to know what those needs are at a glance, but with patience, tolerance, acceptance and respect, most individuals will reveal their true nature and I am normally bettered for the experience.

Cats taught me the exact same thing that they did to Heidi. They taught me that I could love more than I ever imagined I could.

Like everyone else, you took the words right out of my mouth
I've also learned good parenting skills.... what it's like, for instance, to sit up all night with a sick baby, just to make sure that they are comfortable and sleeping OK (did that Sat. night)

If having a cat has taught me nothing else, it's taught me....

That I like cats more than I like people (unless it's people who like cats).

That I cannot take a shower or be in the bathroom alone without one of them with me to keep me company. If I try, it just feels weird.

That sometimes, it's just fun as heck to run through the house making weird noises, even if your only purpose of doing so is to lie down & sleep afterwards.

That fake mice with little beads inside of them are more fun than real mice.

That cats are very good listeners who will never judge me or make fun of me.

That when I wake up in the middle of the night and see my cats surrounding me & purring cuz they are happy to be with me, I am a really lucky gal to be loved by each and every one of them!



Great Thread.

That my cats like to make me twitch!!! Like when I come home, and they are all hidden and scare me, thinking something terrible has happened. I think they conspire and do it on purpose!!!
