Cats are good for you. But we already know that.

+100 :)

I came across a really cute clip recently. Sadly it was of a lonely Lynx in a zoo but it had been befriended by a stray domestic cat. They were taking it in turns to wash each other - and whilst just a couple of licks from the lynx pretty much covered all the bases for the stray - the stray was utterly exhausted trying to do the same for it's new friend :) I'll have a root around tomorrow to see if I can find it :)

You're welcome. :^) One of our cats was found as a stray kitten in the winter under a highway overpass. When we brought her home we wondered if the adult male would accept her. Soon we found them curled up in the pet bed cleaning each other like this. They are certainly endearing beasties, aren't they?

I've heard yowling and purring from mountain lions, but never this kind of vocalization:

Cats know more about life than we do, as theirs is way too short.

My truest wish?
I should be the Rainbow Bridge keeper. And watch all the beloved come up and reunite them when the time is due. And keep them happy in the meantime.

Meowcry.

Give me a moment........
I think I was the first kitty person on Seti...or thereabouts.

Nobody used to talk about cats.
Never, almost verbotten.

I don't remember the watershed moment, but one day I started talking about my kitties...they were young then.

And slowly but surely the Seti kitty culture was born.

As I remember it...........
I don't recall many kitties here before I introduced them.
I am sure there are exceptions to this, but not many, as I recall it.

I believe I paved the way for Seti kitties of all types.
Jealous?? LOL. Not at all. I pet all kitties of all manner of their being.
Cats is cats. You just cannot take that away from me.
No, you can't take them away from ME.
The way they meow, the way they munch their food. The way they have big eyes. No, you can't take them away from me.
