They are bastards, that is true, but I love my fluffy friends, half of the fascination is that they are so disdainful.

SweetieDrops Sat 20-Feb-16 10:41:02

Reminds me of this grin

And yes cats are dickheads that give no fucks about your feelings. When they're not being fluffy, cute and hilarious that is, whereupon you immediately forgive all misdemeanours.

It's the same as women who fall for the treat em mean keep em keen bad boy type. The thought that they can tame the beast, the flattery of being chosen when they could have fucked off with anyone.

I love mine because they are like that! No soppy worshipping of humans... they are furry demi gods and I love their attitude!

And when they DO show love... I feel special grin

(next time don't leave your phone on the edge of anywhere... rookie mistake!!)

I've owned a shithead cat who barely tolerated me only because I fed her.

But I now have a very friendly cat who greets me when I get home, loves nothing more than spending family time having cuddles on the sofa, tries very hard to make friends with my DDog and has taken to grooming my husbands toes. She's awesome.

It's not just cats. Our dog knocked DH's netbook off the sofa and twatted the screen. grin

She's lulling you into a false sense of security Drop.

Our cat is the princess of hauteur.

Love that picture!

If cats were human beings they would be pretty reprehensible ones. Like certain kinds of men, they manage to charm their way into our hearts while doing very little to deserve it. The way to look at them is as enchanting wild animals who have chosen to share our living space. Your reward for the mess, breakage, expense, smell and occasional loss of blood is to be allowed to look at them. Any affection or compliance with house rules is a rare bonus. (I have one affectionate cat and one mostly compliant one. They are both assholes in their own way. But adorable assholes.)

YABU for leaving your phone on the side, btw. If it's important to you, tuck it away.

I love my cats but their behaviour is unreasonable at times.

Boy cat 1 brings in half eaten wildlife.

Boy cat 2 hisses and growls at everyone.

Girl cat 1 tries to sleep on my head.

Girl cat 2 is just mental.

But they do have lovely moments.

A few years ago one of DH's senior colleagues was in the house to discuss his new contract. Colleague wasn't blessed in the hair department - rather thin on top.

My loyal house cat appeared and jumped on the back of the sofa. I watched mortified as he slowly stretched forward and licked the colleague's bald head.

Howling at Sweetie's chart. grin

Cats may be dickheads but puppies are absolute twats. My parents puppy has destroyed everything, barks constantly, jumps up at you, 'nips' you 'playfully' and runs away at every opportunity. Quite why anyone has ever got a puppy completely eludes me. How they still exist completely eludes me. (however i also think that of babies but seem to be continuing to have them confused )

MrsBee55 Sat 20-Feb-16 10:59:55

My cat has been trying to kill me for 5 years, yet I still feed him everyday and make sure he's comfortable at night. No idea why.

Sparklingcat sits on my bedside table and pushes everything off one by one. And chews my headphones. I love her. grin

givemushypeasachance Sat 20-Feb-16 11:04:10

One of mine specialises in weaving in and out of my legs as I'm walking down the stairs. I point out to him that if I trip and fall and break my neck, there's no one else here to feed him. But I suspect he'd be nibbling away at my corpse in fairly short order...

The cat sounds goady. And kind of funny.
