3. You know how they grab you with their forepaws and claw with the back ones?

Let's not do that, 'kay?

12. In my family of cat lovers (ok, crazy cat lovers) we call that

"Kicky-poos." Adorable but extremely painful.

5. And really, who amongst us hasn't ever wanted a large carnivore as a house pet?

A crocodile, or a grizzly bear, or a 50-foot python, or something like that

6. And you know what they say about a 50-foot python

When he sits around the house...he sits AROUND the house.

10. I think I must exude some sort of cat sedative or something... I've had cats...

.
.
.
... most of my adult life and, except for one who could tolerate about 20-30 seconds of a
belly rub before she would give me a non-painful but serious warning grab... they all loved
gentle bellyrubs.
.
Except for Graycat. She had been abused by her owner's roommate (what an ASSHOLE!!!)
and couldn't tolerate contact of any sort. I was patient with her and sometimes I could ease
up behind her and skritch her head for about 10 seconds before she realized that she was
being "touched" and dart off. That was it... until I had had her for about two years.
.
One day, I was sitting on the couch watching TV and she walked over on the cushions and
plopped down -- leaning AGAINST me. She allowed me to gently skritch her head and neck --
though that was as much contact as she could ever tolerate. We sat like that, sometimes
for hours, quite often after that.
.
I was so happy for her and I can't say that I didn't feel an enormous sense of accomplishment.
