@carwinew@tinamarie1974 In general, I like Neil Diamond. But he had some of the lamest lyrics (in otherwise enjoyable tunes) out there:
“No one spoke at all, not even the chair”
“Songs she sang to me, songs she brang to me”
There are some TV commercials like that for me. If I can’t sprint across the room to mute them I stick my fingers in my ears and go *la-la-la-la-la" until they’re over.
Whether I am a cat person is entirely dependent on the cat in question. We have one long hair that basically avoids people except when it’s time to eat and pukes pretty much once a day. That cat could run away and I wouldn’t look for it.
Our other cat is fun and loving and currently is guarding our chickens from a new cat that just moved in. Our cat weighs in at 26 pounds so he can take care of himself. I like that cat.
I’m a cat person and people knowing this is not an issue. I have nothing against dogs but I think the level of effort to properly care for one is beyond me on my own. Taking them out for shits and walks every few hours.
However the fact that I just allowed this to occour may also make me undatable.
@callow the 4 kittens and mom were caught a few days ago because they were under the garage. Idk if they are staying. They are not really causing a problem since they are staying upstairs away from the two resident cats and I have both security cams on them. And other than some hissing at me they are fine.
Kittens will become cats and 7 cats must be approaching crazy cat man. But I have volunteered at one shelter and been to the other and the people there are great but they also regularly had up to 100 cats/kittens. I’m reluctant to turn them in. They at least need to be friendly so they get adopted.
I like cats, I really really do … I prefer dogs, but I do like cats. I just don’t have one because I don’t live in a place where they can roam free without becoming roadkill and I just can’t be ok with having a litter box in my teeny-tiny house. But I really do like cats … even though dogs are better.
I’ve had so many cats over the years that I figure my DNA is about 50 percent cat. (Though luckily most of my cats have lived long lives, so I guess not that many cats.) Currently, four run the household, along with one dog. I’m secretly hoping a fifth one will adopt us soon.
I am a complete cat person to the point that I don’t even have to tell people. I advocate for TNR, wish to win the lottery to fund cat rescue, am making plans to foster, and have two adored furballs in my home now.
I love most all animals. There was a snake once; got into the house and I wasn’t allowed to love it but, I did help it to leave the house unharmed. I regularly catch and relocate Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes from my workplace. They just can’t hang out under people’s cars, or hide in the shrubs next to the front door, and wait for the sun to go down.
But cats; yes, I love cats. I’ve always had a two cat limit rule but about five years ago I adopted my daughter’s cat when she moved to a no pets allowed apartment. He’s 14 years old now and is starting to get old cat issues. One more cat than two is exponential. They do behave nicely and bring much love to our home. That is an exponential factor too. One of the cats, the adopted one, likes to craft. He makes toys out of his feces and bats them around the house. His hobby subtracts from the love.
I guess I’d be considered a cat person. We have a couple of cats. The oldest is 21 years, the youngest six are four weeks old today. And a few more in between.
My website that I started back in 1997, is “lisaviolet’s cathouse”. I have a youtube channel with lots of cat videos. (The kitten in the logo is the original Lisa Violet, graphic drawn by a graphics person from a photo of baby Lisa.)
I’m allergic to cats. I have no interest in nurturing a pile of fur and needles. Domesticated cats shouldn’t be allowed to roam free outside killing for fun. And the thought of having a litter box in my space is extremely unappealing.
However, if you could ask cats they would say I’m a cat person. They often show me a level of affection that infuriates their ignored and bloodied owners.
