    Red face A proud Father...

    ...of sorts! Yesterday, I picked up this little fella! His name is Dexter, and he is an 8 1/2 week old Blue Point Ragdoll kitten!

    A proud Father...-380789_10150906421735045_641250044_21535856_115425974_n.jpg

    Copying @Little-Miss on the pet name?

    I got a cat a few months ago...tiny little thing, they grow up in record speed. Mine is a looney and my daughter loves her :-)

    This one is already loopy! He has no interest in balls, toy mouses etc. Instead, he seems to love socks! Even more so when they are on peoples feet!!!

    My two cats are about 3 years old now, and are as crazy as they were 3 years ago, but 1000 times more affectionate.

    When I got them they hid under a table permanently for 3 months except for toilet breaks and food, and even then only when noone else was watching. They never meowed, never purred, and only played from a distance.

    This morning my cat woke me up by jumping on me and whining in my ear, chased my wife down the stairs to race her for food, then came back up and played silly buggers with me in her cat bed while I poked her through the bed and she pretended to chase it while exposing a belly that desperately wanted a tickle! The other cat waits for me to get home, follows me upstairs, and within minutes of me sitting in my desk chair, climbs up the back of it already purring, nudges my head till I get out of the way, and stands in front of me demanding my full attention. If I don't give it, she headbutts me and neads my shoulder while meowing.

    Aww, looks like the cat is pleased with its decision to own a new human... As it is cats which own their humans, not the other way round.

    I got a kitten recently and she keeps disappearing with my five year old sons favourite cuddly toy, much to his disapproval.

    My cat is strange. I suspect possibly a russian spy, maybe even a dog disguised as a cat....
    He comes in, checks the food bowl, if it's empty he proceeds to the dogs bowl and checks that too. If there's anything in it, he'll help himself whilst holding the dog at bay using various techniques such as hissing, making strange (almost barking) noises, or biological warfare that is his gas.....
    Once he's finished he then helps himself to a roll in the dogs bed, before locating one of his human children and hassling them for yet more food.
    Once finished he has a good ol' roll and a kip on the rug.
    And he doesn't wash - he's like the tramp of the cat world!!!

    Last night was a bit restless! We thought we would shut him in the hallway and give him free roam of the kitchen for his food and litter tray, but when we closed our bedroom door, he started meowing really loudly. In the end, we had to let him in and he slept between me and the missus all night long. He did wake up in the middle of the night and insist I play with him by means of clawing my shoulder!

    Keep them busy, don't overfeed them and keep them indoors as long as possible.

    I have two cats, cat number one stays in and is cute and cuddly and cat number 2 is anti-social, always wants to go out and has been caught stealing food from neighbour's kitchens!

    a good few years ago (before kids), we went to get a cat and ended up with 2 (Moon and Shushem). This pair were as mad as a box of frogs; no part of the body could be exposed during sleep. Use to take them over to Dublin with us on our regular trips. 1 went awol when we were over there ;-( Back to the UK, and a bit later to get another cat and again came back with 2 (Ickums and Boo). Our errant cat then returned to the in-laws house in Dublin after 3 months; rejoined us to bring the final total to 4. They all came with us when we made the move from London to Swindon, though one did decide to cause trouble on leaving (he popped into the house after I'd locked the door and given the keys to the estate agent, having forgotten to lock the cat flap); one just sat in a corner staring at the wall for the first day at our new house.

    Sadly all deceased now, joining the long list of animals and birds that they brought into the house. We now have a rescue dog and a re-homed cat. The cat is the boss.

    Only tip I can offer - make sure you get pet insurance!
