I miss my kitties. I had a cat I had since college die about 6 years ago and I had to give up my other cat because my son was allergic and we could not get his GERD controlled. He seems to be doing fine with cats now so I would love to get one again. My old cat is still alive and living with the ex-husband of my friend who got a divorce after they took her in and my friend moved out and did not take her. I'm still friends with her husband so I occasionally get pictures of her though FB.

I miss having the aloof companionship. I love that cats are so independent. It makes it more special when they love on you. The only thing though that I do not miss is having to roller my clothes every morning and cleaning the litter box. I would have to pick the right cat though. My younger cat had really soft, thick, short hair and shed like a mofo which set off my allergies even. My childhood cat who had wispy long hair, never bothered me.

Grumpy Cat. Best cat ever.

I had numerous cats for my boys (and wife).
I ended up returning them to the vet or pound
or whatever it is. Their okay. My family
just does not appreciate the time and effort it takes
to have animals. I end up having to do it and I simply
cant be bothered so I return them. It sux too cause
I fall in love with the little guys and I know that is
going to happen. So I have to play the bad guy all the time.

ME:"No ...no more cats ...dogs .. I dont care . no more"

Kids/Wife "Please FBE I swear we will take care of it this time"

Me thinking: "Well who am I to quash a dream lets give
this another shot"


ME; "Ahhhhh alright, alright but you guys know this is on you. I have no time
to take care of this pet. Be warned. I know the drill you get it love it
for a week and then its sans novelty and I get stuck holding the bag"

Yep. Everytime. So I feel bad for the pets since they could be in a loving
home and I have to return them or give them away. On the plus side
I have given away some pretty expensive pets over the years and
they all had shots and what not so good deal for the people grabbing
the free pet.

Grumpy is the best. I save her movie - voiced by Aubrey Plaza - on my DVR for whenever the nieces and nephews come over. Of course I like it too because I'm a huge sucker, but I understand what you're saying about kids taking responsibility for pets. Too bad, they are fun for socializing little humans.

Grumpy Cat = Real Name: Tartar Sauce
She is a dwarf kitten which is pretty rare apparently.
I dont have facebook myself but my Wife follows
Grumpy on there. Im a pretty die hard fan.

I have Grumpy Cat plushies and her books. My wife got them for
me.

As campy as the movie is I sat through it. I also have it PVR'ed
for future.....enjoyment? My granddaughter will like it I am sure.

I have not seen any of the Grumpy/Garfield collaborations yet.
I will delve into them though. Two great cats right there.
Meant for each other really.
