No but my cat is utterly uninterested. He knows its us playing with it and looks at us like we're retards. He loves his remote control mouse car like its kitty crack though.

Thanks
housecats are an invasive species. they really should remain indoors.

my cats growing up were in/out

current cats are indoor only.

Do you feed your cats wet food at all? Our cat eats one maybe two tablespoons a day and it does great things for his fur. Our cat has only puked on two occasions and both times it was a little bit of foamy liquid like perhaps he drank too much water.

Here's my lazy *** cats. The stupid one is the white one.


I bet the white one is def in one ear. It is genetic white with blue eyes = def.

I don't think that's true 100% of the time. There might be some predisposition, but my friends had a white cat with two blue eyes and he would come running in from the other room when he heard the shake of the Friskies treat bag or if you called his name, so he had at least one good ear. He was a bit sickly when he was a kitten though, and he died at only 9 years of age. Vet presumed it was some undiagnosed heart condition.

Actually my friends had both cats at the vet for a routine visit and the white one just suddenly died right there in the waiting room. This was two weeks ago and my friends were quite upset. The other cat, which was less social and didn't play much with the white cat while he was alive, has suddenly become affectionate and needy. She will sit and stare at the cupboard that he used to get into and hide, as if she's hoping he'll pop out of there. It's cute and sad.

Eh, my cat is pretty indiscriminate about what it throws up on my ****. Wet or dry. This is almost a weekly goddamn thing. Hardwood / concrete floors here too, ~4700 sq/ft in fact, and she still has, HAS, to puke ON my ****. Aside from that, she's the smartest cat I've ever had or seen.

No it can hear out of both ears fine. Apparently the cat has to be 100% white in fur and my retard cat has some dark hair in spots.

As for wet catfood, neither of my cats will eat it. My black intelligent cat (her name is Chainsaw) doesn't throw up undigested catfood.

I had a def white cat with blue eyes. It was a small skinny but nutty cat, liked the vaccume cleaner, several times while I was working in the garage it would hang out on top of the air compressor while I was grinding making all sorts of annoying noises. When the compressor kicked on the cat would stand up and look down at it while it was vibrating it feet pretty hard and wait for it to stop then it would lay down again on the nice warm compressor housing. It was an indoor cat but it got out one morning and Iím pretty sure it got nabbed by a coyote, I saw a coyote zip across the yard the very next moring after searching to find the cat. Very sad to loose that cat.

I do not recommend letting your cat outdoors ever. If you do it once, they will forever try to run out the door. Outside, they will get run over, tortured by people that need to be executed slowly, get killed by dogs, killed by racoons, kill all the birds in your neighborhood, and BREED. There are a ******* bazillion cats so the first thing you do, please fix it.

I do recommend kitty partners, preferably from the same litter. Some cats are "only cats" though and they hate other cats. There's not that many of those kinds though.

People would be less likely to get killed or injured if they never went outside too. Can you imagine how shitty life would be if you never went outside?

We encourage our cat to go outside and be social with other cats and also to catch birds. Unfortunately he sucks at catching birds, only brought back one but he got rewarded with lots of attention, treats and wetfood for that one so he should be more motivated to do better.

If you didn't know there was an inside my guess is you'd be pretty content.

**** the birds. Noisy **** machines. My cats go in and out as they please, but are in at night (around 9:30) for their own protection. Racoons and such will mess up a cat bad, and I don't need the vet bills.

ALL cats should be fixed, as a matter of course. But not letting them out is cruel. We have prisons for a reason - it's punishment.

Birds do eat stuff like bugs that bite you. Just FYI

I thnk that went pretty far over my head.

I've been thinking about pet insurance too. I bet it costs more for an outdoor cat like health insurance costs more for a smoker.
