A place for atheists with cats to exchange pictures and anecdotes and even ask for advice regarding our feline friends.
Latest Activity: yesterday
This group does not have any discussions yet.
I was feeling pretty blah yesterday so I decided to take a bath. Like many males, I mostly shower and only take a bath when I'm not feeling good.
So, I started running a bath and Squeaky, being a cat, and curious, became preoccupied with this unfamiliar sound. Just sitting outside the bathroom waiting to see what would transpire. I turned the water off, crawled in and laid back in the water.
Wow, this really piqued her interest. She came in and peaked over the edge and went right and left to peer in further and assess the situation.
Then, in order to see better she did the strangest thing: she stood up on her haunches looking for all the world like a jet black prairie dog, her forelegs hanging down for all the world like human arms.
Once she had assured herself there was no danger, she hopped up on the flat edge of the tub and sat, just watching me. After a few minutes she stood up, put one paw on my shoulder, and licked water off my shoulder. Then she walked around on my chest.
Back on the edge of the tub, she walked back and forth. I was starting to fear she'd fall into the tub. We cat owners know that despite their normal sure footedness and cat-like (LOL) reflexes, the sometimes make bad errors in judgment or can't see the situation they're in the way we can.
I was afraid because she's not declawed at all and if she fell in, I might get cut to ribbons in her panic to get out.
But all ended well. Another chapter in the huge book of amusing cat behavior. I always say that owning a cat is the next best thing to owning a monkey.
I haven't had a guitar amp for a while and playing an electric guitar without one is like sex with a very thick condom, so I haven't been playing. Well, I found a good deal on a small amp on Craigslist and bought it.
So, I've been starting to play, but Squeaky won't leave me alone. I'll be playing from a standing position and she'll come up and stand on her hind legs with her paws up on my thigh, looking up into my face and meowing in a pleading tone. I hope it's not a commentary on my music. I think she wants me to put the guitar down and play with her.
If I play sitting on a stool, she'll hop up on my knee and put her paw on the strings.
@Unseen - Charlie is my parents' cat. He's a grey and white tabby. He's very vocal and dribbles a lot when you stroke him, like a lot of male cats. He was shut in a cupboard for the first six months of his life, at a Jewish school.
@ Unseen - In that case you DEFINITELY have a bathroom loving kitty lol and he would probably be highly offended if you shut him out.
She spent some time in my lap and let me pick her up without fussing, so I think I'm forgiven.
Squeaky actually prefers cat treats to raw meat for some reason, and she gets those all the time.
Mabel, since I'm normally home alone (semi-retired) I don't close the bathroom door. Squeaky comes in while I'm sitting down and sometimes begs to be lifted up and held in my arms. Sometimes she unrolls the toilet paper. Sometimes she curls up in the sink. Sometimes she goes past the shower curtain and plays in the bathtub.
Raw meat? How so?
I picked Squeaky up awkwardly and I think I hurt her a little bit. Well, since then she's been moody, seems frustrated (she meows at me like I'm supposed to know to do something), and sometimes she swats at my hand or even bites, by which I mean hard play bites not killing bites. I wonder how long it'll take her to forgive me.
Are any of you cat owners familiar with this dilemma? lol (from ShutupImTalking.com)
