Do you secretly (or not so secretly) favor one of your fur friends? - Page 2

post #31 of 55
I love them all with the same level of intensity, but like others have said, in different ways for different reasons.

Max is always accusing me of favouring Ruby, but a friend of mine on the dog forum that I am on, who is a trainer I greatly admire with many, many years of experience with dogs put it in a lovely way - she said it sounds like Ruby is my `heart dog' and she is right. I adore them both, but Ruby just has a special place with me.

And my cats, well, how could I not love them all to pieces? I love Cairo because she is such a grump but loves me so much, Sunday because she is the sweetest, most affectionate darling thing, and Sashka because she is so full of personality and she was such a difficult, crazy little kitten, who is so sweet and cranky and skittish...

My husband favors Monte and my son favors Ben and Tai.. I truly have no favorite, they all have a special place in my heart!

Ophelia is Daddy's Girl, without question. She adores him. She sleeps with me at night, but only because Daddy rolls around too much while Mommy will wake up and contort herself to change positions in order to not disturb the kitty. Other than that, she loves her Daddy and Daddy loves her.
It's much the same in our house. Cindy attached herself to Mum, and there's no doubt she's Mum's girl, though Dad's a good guy too. Fawn and Suzy, in totally different ways, are both Daddy's girls. Suzy herds Daddy into the study, so that he'll sit at the computer, and then she gets up behind him -- good for his posture . As far as Fawn is concerned, nobody -- but NOBODY -- holds her right, or scritches her right, except Daddy.

And we respond in kind. The cats who have picked us tend to be our favourites. So when Suzy and Cindy are going at it, you know who's going to be getting each one's tale of woe .

It think it would be fair to say, though, that we both love them all equally, it's just that there's a stronger special bond with the individuals who have chosen us.

Pig is my favorite, without a doubt. i often feel a little guilty, but she is my little girl. She squeaks for her mee-acks in the mornings, and she gets a little saucer of it (I realize she's not supposed to get it, but I only give her an oz or so) If she chews my cables, other tan telling her no and tabascoing the cables, she doesn't get punished. She's just so low maintenance, really .. she's just happy to have a home, and someone that loves her. And its terribly cute when she drools and makes bread and rubs whiskers. And she stands like a prairie dog when I point at her, and nuzzles my fingers.

I am guilty of this too!! Out of my two permanent cats, I love Ginger more than Pebbles - I have had him nearly 4 years, and he has outlived 3 cats already, so he is like the steady thing in my life. However, he is very independent, and does like going to my neighbours house. I cherish every time he sits on my knee and feel awful when I move him, as it doens't happen all that much (but more so since the neighbours got a new dog so the door has been shut more). Out of the 4 in the house, Molly is my favourite, and does get the most attention, but that is her personality - she is very in your face, has to sleep under the duvet, talks to you, so it is hard not to really. Tom prob gets the second most as again, he asks for it quite a lot. My two are just happy to have a nice home and regular decent food. Pebbles only tends to come for affection when I am either in bed or on the comp.

I don't think I love either cat more than the other, but I definately favour Portia.

She was my bottle fed bub and I had her from when she was just two days old - So I feel the need to protect her a little more than Diesel.

But Diesel is my little man and I definately love him to pieces!!

My tuxedo cat, Max, passed in July. He was my soulmate cat. He was aloof, independent and only wanted love on his conditions. But he was the smartest cat I have ever seen. I wrote a story about him when he died and didn't know if there is anywhere on this forum you can post things like that.
I still have Muffin who is going on 7, and Speedboat going on 10. Speedboat has always loved me better than my other cats. There is no where he would rather be than in my lap. He tried hard to make me love him the best. I really love them both pretty much the same. Although my heart still aches for the one who is gone, I don't let them know it and they both get lots of hugs and kisses. I am trying to appreciate what I have instead of missing what I don't have, but that is hard.

I love all my cats equally, but I must admit, Poodle Kitty is my first cat, and thus will always hold a special place in my heart. But I could never say I love one more than the other. They are all special, but in different ways.

Elmo was from one of the first litters we bred. He was born in my room and he's just the sweetest cat on this earth. I swear he gets away with murder.

How can you not fall for this face and soulful eyes?

I like my one and only (and also first) cat.

When we got out two bengals Myah had spots that stood out much more than Chaka's. I automaticly started to give Chaka more attention than Myah because I didn't want her to be slighted. Without discussion so did my son and wife. Even though she hates to get picked up she gets kittie squashes the most. She's the first on the list in our house with everybody.

Hands down, Rocky! I do feel sorta guilty, but it's true.
Rocky has always needed TLC due to being sick, and he likes me the best out of the cats, likes me more than DH- that's okay b/c Zakk likes him more. Rocky sleeps next to my legs, follows me around, give me kisses and purrs in the middle of the night. He is also the least demanding of the four. He couldn't care less if he is first at feeding time, but will quietly go over and chow the left overs. He also reminds me of myself- prone to weight gain, poor eyesight, clumsy, and goofy.

I hope I don't play favorite with my children when I have them!

Of course! I try very hard to be fair and give equal punishements, etc. But Zenon seems to get away with much more than Cleo does. Probably because I catch Cleo on the counter and on the TV, etc more than Zenon. Zenon covers her tracks better, so I tend to favor her more. As long as I don't see it, I confess that I often don't care what she has done. Cleo has bigger, more pleading eyes, though, so she gets out of a thump on the head quite often, too!

I love them all equally, but in different ways (does that make sense?)
It's funny, when I talk to one of them affectionately, I have to make sure that the others get compliments too - especially if they are within hearing range!! They get so jealous of each other.

I love Molly because she is my special girl - had her the longest and she's the most affectionate.

I have a soft spot for Morrell because he's a big boy that I rescued who looks similar to a cat that I lost named George.

I love Noah because he's a sweetheart and has such a cute face.

I love Bella because she's always getting into mischief to get my attention. She is more like a dog than a cat sometimes (plays fetch).

Both of our cats are sooo different from each other, and I love them for who they are....however, that being said, Toby and Tedy actually do have their "own favorite person".Tedy`s "Favorite" is Larry and Toby`s "Favorite" is me.

Same here. They both have different personalities, and if i tell one of them their " Mummy's gorgeous girl " i have to tell the other one as well

Thats funny Susan thats what I do. Except I can say, 'who's the most beautiful boy in the world' without offending Nismo because I say the same to her. If I'm going out and I give Sleeves a cuddle I always have to give Nismo one aswell, and if the Sleeves comes back to me and demands more attention, I then give Nismo another cuddle too... I sometimes end up being late because I have to share the love equally!

I love gabbers, I really do, but CJ is my baby. I got CJ in the middle of a breakup from my boyfriend of 2 years. He was an abused kitten at a shelter who had reached the end of his stay (he was scheduled to be pts in 3 days). I went to see if a cat was right for me and he reached through the bars and grabbed my hair, and we have been together since. I helped him become more trusting and he helped through a very tough time.

We were there for each other because we needed each other, and gabbers and I have not been through anything like that to bond.
