    The cats broke my St. Francis statue in the middle of the night!
    St. Francis, being the patron saint of animals, would forgive them; but Mama is going to stay ticked off for awhile. [​IMG]

    HEHEHE. Sorry, but there's no end to annoying things those durned cats will do. [​IMG]

    There was a mouse left inside the house once, right at the top of the stairs. For prime 'viewing.'

    Quote:Yes and DH isn't too thrilled that his collection of antique oil lamps has had to be relocated away from their favorite nighttime "racetrack", but what are you going to do? [​IMG]

    We have cats....

    We no longer have "nick-nacks", pictures hanging on walls, or a chandaler. God forbid you leave a pen/pencil unatended for a split second and it disapears. We've also learned we cannot leave any food out that's not in secure containers as they will chew through anything (just for the fun of it!). [​IMG]

    There was also that phase where we had to hide all paper products--toilet paper, paper towel, kleenex (thankfully they got over that)

    I love my cats dearly, but we the humans have had to make some compromises on our side.

    I still manage to bring home a stray kitten about once a year from work though! [​IMG]

    Dogs have masters, cats have servants?

    Dogs come when you call them. Cats expect you to leave a message and they'll get back to you when they feel like it?

    I keep telling ya'll cats were kicked off an alien spaceship because the aliens couldn't take it anymore. That's how cats ended up on earth! [​IMG]

    The joys of having a mostly outdoor cat [​IMG] Mine only comes in to eat, sleep, or come in whenever she wants. If she's bored she may get on the counters and tables and stuff, but nothing with decorations. The world is her playground! [​IMG]

    Quote:I don't doubt that theory one bit.
    Kitty spends at least a half an hour a day licking DH's hand. She's being doing this since she was three weeks old. If he tries to pull his hand away she'll grab it with her claws and hold on.
    Took us awhile to figure it out, he's a smoker and right-handed. She's addicted to nicotine. [​IMG]

    Try having one that really doesn't 'get it', or mentally off. Nod is 16 months old now, still tries to suckle your fingers, aluminum foil is like cat nip for him, he turns the faucet on just to watch the water, every once in a while he'll look up and see the ceiling fans running and totally flips out about it, doesn't help that he's deaf in one ear, hasn't met anything he doesn't like yet and if he's really spazzed out he'll take his brother and Onyx on a wild ride....... all out curtains are on the floor, chairs are turned over everywhere, nothing is left on the table, coffee table or end tables, the dishwasher usually gets knocked open somehow, the shower curtain is in the kitchen, pictures all askew on the walls, all the DVDs are on the floor, all my books are scattered and the computers are usually turned off.

    This happens about 3 times a week, we don't have anything breakable anymore and we screw our pictures to the wall when possible.
    Wanna borrow a super sweet cat that answers hand signals?? [​IMG]
