Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

Just To Update

Still just the Daphne and me. No picking got done. Sure got close, though. I'm sorry that I turn into such a basket case as I stare into the eyes of each of these little creatures. I really had myself 100 percent convinced it was going to happen tonight. I really got closer.

Both Toby and Bronson seemed to have a good time with me. Then some other person searching for a new cat walked by, stopped and visited with me, pet both boys, and then made a comment about boy cats. "Surely that can't be true?" I thought. Anyway, then I went to look at Casey, a girl cat. And then nothing felt right again.

My heart wasn't "crushed" that Tammy was gone. I liked her, but wasn't certain. Maybe I was leaning toward one of the guys. They are both so loving. The volunteers told me an older lady came in Tuesday and spent about 30 minutes with Tammy before saying, "she's the one." Sounds very exciting for Tammy.

Please don't give up on me quite yet.

XCUZE ME!!! Nothing wrong with boy cats!! Mum can tell you I am a fine, handsome male, minus a few little bits. Boy cats who are minus our bits are just as good as girl kitties.

Plus, I wented and looked at the waifs. I saw some mighty pretty ginger kitties! I thinks you should get a ginger kittie!!!

But pick one, or two, maybe three???. hehehe. Open your heart and see.

Last week at PetSmart, I saw a couple of fine cats and in their description it said they were brothers and must be adopted together. Maybe that is what is waiting for you. Whichever cat or cats chooses you, they are going to have a good life.

Cowboy, we will never give up on you. I know it's hard. But, you have the weekend, and maybe a little more time to visit with the kitties.
What did that woman say was wrong with boy cats? There's nothing wrong with them - I've had 5 boy cats and 2 girl cats in my life, and actually the boys were more loving than the girls. We looked at the site to see Brendan and Toby, and we really thought Brendan was a character, but the boys sure thought Annabell was very purrty. But Casey looked very lonely - poor girl. It's a good thing I live so far away, I'd probably end up with about 4 of them. - Meezers Mom

What did that woman say? My mom was anxious about her first boy (my bro Eddie) because of things she'd heard, but that was a million years ago and it was all wrong anyway. My mom loves little boy cats. Especially me! Even though we've had two girls come to live with us since me, I'm pretty sure my mom secretly loves us boys more.

Derby, I'm a cowboy, so let's don't be talking about missing bits. :) Cowboys are too tough to know about stuff like that. Except, there is something called calf fries. Do you know what those are?

It might sound selfish on my part, Kelly's Cat Human, but I really just desire/seek/want to focus on one cat. But, I won't rule out more later.

Meezers-I will have to take a look at the others you mentioned. While lying in bed last night I kept thinking about one of them in particular.

On a different point, I think you're right about Casey. She was very talkative and purred. Believe it or not, that was one of the things that left me just slightly uncertain about Tammy the other day. I never heard her purr the whole time I was petting her!

William-She said something like "Boy cats spray, you know." Now, I was sitting on the floor with Toby and Bronson, while she was standing up. Maybe I misunderstood her.

My Ep was so tame. She was an observer. I think that's why she loved blogging so much. Finally a place to talk about all she observed. But earlier this week a friend reminded me that Eppy likely wasn't always that way. I probably have forgotten how active she was 15 years ago. You know, I think that could be true.

we won't give up on you cowboy. what about bojangles? he's got a silly name, for sure, but in his pic he looks like he's got personality! what did the person say about male cats? my boyz are, obviously, boys, as were my two previous cats. i've also had girl cats. neither scruffy nor either of the new boyz EVER sprayed in the house, nor did or have they taken to peeing indiscriminately, which is what i suspect you were told.

you'll know when the time is right, cowboy.

Just my two cents worth...neither of my boy cats have ever sprayed, especially if they're neutered young. Believe it or not, it's my elderly female that will spray on occasion! I think she's just getting a little cranky and possessive in her old age but I could hardly believe it the first time I saw her do it.
I have no doubt you'll know "the one" when you find him/her...have patience and remember to be gentle with yourself.

Cowboy, none of my boy cats ever sprayed. Anon is right, if the are neutered before the behavior starts, it never will start. However, it is also a behavior that can be eliminated.

You will know the one, and if you were thinking about one in particular, then perhaps that one was thinking about you too!

Cowboy - we would never give up on you... The time just isn't quite right yet for you. You will get picked soon. Purrs & headbutts...

Mia & Ghost

Cowboy - don't worry about not being able to decide. It will all work out. I'm with the Meezers Mom though - I'd want to take them all home & take care of them. Not enough time, space or money so I'll stick with my two for now.

i am insulted by that comment 'bout boys. i am a boy and my Mom says i am the bestest kitty she has ever had. so there! (actually, my Mom and the Dad said they'd never get another boy 'cause they did have one that sprayed, but that was one and they've had 'bout five boys over the years. if i ever tell the real and true story of how i got picked you'll hear all 'bout it). Cowboy, don't worry 'bout boy/girl. just get one that likes you! you'll know.

We won't give up on you, Cowboy.

Mum says one day the right one will just creep into your heart - like we did :-)

You're destined to have a poodin, you just haven't found him/her yet!

When the time is right you will know - don't push because you feel you have to. There's another furr-friend out there for you. When you least expect it he/she will make themselves known.

I can honestly say I've never had a problem with male cats. As long as they are neutered you shouldn't have a problem with spaying or aggressiveness. I've found over the years that boy cats are complete mushes. I've had seven males over the years and five females. The boys were just complete attention sluts, loved having their bellies rubbed, and were just big lovies.

Don't let the sex of the cat determine if you'll adopt him/her. Let the personality shine through.

And I have to agree that multiple cats is the way to go. Don't go as far as me, but a couple of siblings is a great thing to have. We have two brothers that are best of friends and I couldn't imagine them being separated.
