There is a stray cat living in my communal garden. She greets me and communicates with her sounds, eyes and body language. She is playful and affectionate. I call her Pussy Cat.
We are both mammals and interact well considering she is a carnivore and I am an omnivorous primate.
Personally I don't like having pets inside, I don't really mind them outside or in their own area... that said I'm not really a big pet person, and if I had to chose, I would definitely have a cat over a dog... cats just seem to have more 'sense.'
My favorite potential pets right now:
A pair of domesticated foxes from the famous Siberian researcher center
A pair of cheetah cub's
Cheetah cubs!!! How cute!!
And as a matter of fact: the cat's brain is more structured like a human brain than a dog's brain.
I love all animals! I have 6 cats, 3 dogs, 1 rat and 6 fish :)
But I do understand what you mean though.
When i moved to this rental house, i took a calico (a stray that just darted in my apartment one day) cat, and one kitten that has the wobbles (hypoplasia, i think?). The wobbly cat is healthy, she's just a messy eater, and can't run away fast enough; so i can always catch her. Alot was going on during the move, and i planned to get momma cat fixed, but she got pregnant. I tried to adopt out the four kittens, but i only found one family that took the black kitten. After this, i couldn't split up the rest of the team and decided that i'd take care of them. I guess i got too attached, and i didn't think anyone could care for them like me. I have 5 cats! I keep them out in cages alot of the time so they can look at wildlife. I never planned on having a cat, it just happened.
Except for those who are niether.
I'm a rodent,bird,rabbit person.
I love rabbits, preferably extra crispy.
No offense intended Goz. I think think they're cute as pets also.
