Pets are great....and what we wouldn't do for them?

WOW! I am hoping that I can get my Dog and cats to do this.

Over the years have had several cats and dogs. Used to train dogs in a past life. No pets right now but the neighbors cats come over almost every day to be combed. They know I don't comb them in the front yard so if they see me out they get my attention and then run to the back. I figure it helps to lower my blood pressure.

The Cat that Walked by Himself

All dog lovers (me) and cat lovers should re-read Kipling's 'Cat that walked by himself' from his Just So Stories. It's a quick read and will tickle many a rib! I'll bet more than a few of you read it to children in your life...

What a wise little story! Thanks for pointing it out, I have never read that one.

I always say that if you are stressed you need to pet a cat a few times from head to tail. Somehow the worries / stress seems to fly away each time your hand reaches the end of the tail. Of course it may take a few repeats of the action to be totally relieved.

Don't you just love that same cute look a cat has.... whether it's a swirling fall leaf or an Axe Murderer?

Yep, there's just something about a cat at times that makes you wonder "okay, what the heck are you up to now" as the little fur ball suddenly becomes extremely affectionate and out of character. A quick check around the house doesn't show any signs of fur balls, or other surprises like a dead meese dragged in from outside, so then what could it be.... . Heavens, it couldn't be that "someone" is needing attention could it?

I've always said that cats are God's favorite animal - just look at the life they lead!

btw - we have both dogs and cats, and our home would feel empty without them.
