Welcome to TCS, and congratulations on joining in on the Wonderul World of Cats! I agree with ChiChisMom about cats. My cats are very social - if I call their name, they answer me with a small meow; if they come up to me with tail raised, I always pet them or at least talk to them; it's just good cat manners. My cats also like my laying hens; there is a fast-food commercial advertising a grilled-chicken sandwhich that features a rooster cackling. The cackling is the alarm call of a chicken, and when my cats hear it, they run to the TV, then look at me for a reaction; it really distresses them to hear that. In fact, the other night, at 1am, they woke me up & lo! 5 raccoons were at my hen coop, and had grabbed one hen thru the chickenwire, and were biting her - I drove them off, fortunately, but I didnt even hear the commotion till I was fully awake and my dogs never barked either. And if I don't feel well, my cats stay close with me, to keep me company.
I've never met anyone from the Middle East before - I really look forward to hearing about your life in Kuwait, as well as all about your new kitty! See you in the forums! Susan
