Thanks for that T. You have to admit they certainly know how to chill out! Purdy's favourite spot at the moment is a plant pot saucer full of grit, on the shelf in the greenhouse. The others just like to sit whenever I am planning to sit! Rolling Eyes

BTW a rat (or two?) Decided to take up residence in the compost bin again. Big mistake - the kitties are taking it in turn to harass them which gives the birds and mice free reign over the rest of the garden. Everyone's happy (well they would be if it would STOP BXXXXY RAINING!!!!!!)

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never say it's not quite as good as his mothers'.....



..then adopt a dog!


If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour, for as long and wherever you want .....



..then adopt a dog!


If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies.....



..then adopt a dog!


If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores.....



..then adopt a dog!


If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves you unconditionally and perpetually.....



..then adopt a dog!


BUT, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness.....



..then adopt a cat!


You thought I was gonna say... marry a man, didn't you?

My cats come when I call them, they all come running (in Gracie's case waddling) when I get home. My dogs could have out-haired the cats any day!

Two might go out for an hour at night, but mostly want to find somewhere cosy in the house. Granted they don't like going for walks, but then, neither do I. Also, with the cats I don't have to keep cleaning piles of poo off the lawn and I get the sofa to myself (mostly) and don't have to share it with a huge, hairy hound.

That's not to say I don't miss my girls, Bonnie, Katie and Rose RIP.

That was an e-mail that was sent to me so I recycled it.

My terrier absolutely adores me. He is so obedient and biddable it has to be seen to be believed. A more gentle and kind natured dog you wont find anywhere. Great around children. Hates anyone in a uniform. He curls up in the cradle of my arm in our armchair in the evenings and nuzzles his head into my shoulder and sleeps away. Where he does his business I don't know. He has a soft mouth too. A great guard dog as he reacts to every stir. Never a mess anywhere in or around the house. The celtic cousins who come to sell their wares wont even get out of the van anymore as he savages them so they blow the horn until I choose to go out or not. He is my constant travelling companion, I don't even lock the car anymore as nobody will get into it with him in it, very protective. Woe betide anyone who steps into my personal space.

You never said what your cats do for you.

Who says an animal has to DO something for you? My Koi carp DO nothing for me, I still think the world of them. They are beautiful and fill me with joy every time I look at them. And before you say anything, the pond is set up in such a way that the fish are more likely to be taken by a heron than any cat - that and the fact they are so big now that they would probably pull the cat in! Laughing

After we lost our Lurcher, Katie, it did take us a long time to get used to locking the car/van doors. She was an excellent car alarm. Dave once got back to the van to find the back door ajar and tools on the pavement. He picked them up and opened the door to put them back, only to be met with flared nostrils and a full set of pearly-white gnashers! Shocked Kate was waiting for the would-be thief to return. Laughing She would even protect the cats.

If I had to answer your question 'what do the cats do for me', you would only have to look at the photos you posted - they provide me with endless amusement. In this sad world that has to count for something.

A comment about cat litter on another thread has just reminded me of something.

Yes sometimes the cats do like to roll on newly raked soil or leave unpleasant 'deposits' - usually on seedlings!? But all my cats combined could not inflict the damage that my friend's, son's young dog has done.

She told me last week that the four mature evergreen ferns that I planted in October were dug up, not once but three times and have been reduced to two moth-eaten balls of roots (they can't find the other two). There are mountains of cxxp all over the lawns, holes dug in the lawns and borders, mature heathers smashed to pieces, gaps in the box hedges where he takes short cuts, I could go on ..... The feral cats who used to live in and around the garden have fled - to be replaced by the mice and rats that they used to control.

So, owning a dog is not all sunshine and light!

You answered your own question Sue, twice over, amusement and joy. Sure what else do we want from them? But I will take some convincing that having a cat around the place serves more purpose than having a dog.
Even in the governments eyes a dog is of more value through needing a licence.

Ah yes, the government, that bunch of useless, self-serving eejits (both Irish and British)

And with that license dogs have some protection, cats have none.

Why Some Men have Dogs and not Wives:



1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.



2. Dogs don't notice if you call them by another dog's name.



3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.



4. A dog's parents never visit.



5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across..



6. You never have to wait for a dog; they're ready to go 24 hours a day.



7. Dogs find you amusing when you're drunk.



8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.



9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, "If I died, would you get another dog?"



10. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.



11. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.



12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad. They just think it's interesting.



13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck.

And last, but not least:

14. If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff.

We were dressed and ready to go out for the New Year's Eve Party.

We turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered
our pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard.

We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house.

As we walked out the door, the cat we had put out in the yard, scoots back into the house.

We didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird.

My wife goes on out to the taxi, while I went back inside to get the cat.

The cat runs upstairs, with me in hot pursuit.

Waiting in the cab, my wife doesn't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the night. So, she explains to the taxi driver that I will be out soon,
'He's just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother.'

A few minutes later, I get into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long,' I said, as we drove away. 'That stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her ass with a coat hanger to get her to come out!

She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her fat ass downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!

She better not sh1t in the vegetable garden again!'

The silence in the cab was deafening.
