Just a cat - how insulting that sounds! Someone walking over your feelings with big dirty boots.

I've always wanted my cats to live like cats, they shouldn't be dressed up or treated like humans, but they behave like family so they ARE family!

Purr-Dee was loud & sometimes we felt he was being murdered he'd holler so loud. I'm sure half the neighborhood heard him through the closed doors!

Kipps did nothave a quiet voice; when he had something to say, he made sure we all heard him. 

When we would take him to the vet, he would wait till we stopped at an intersection, and then holler, "RAPE!  FIRE!"  When we got back home, I'd let him out of his carrier, and he would run into another room hissing and cursing over his shoulder at me.

They are better people than most people, & they are family!

Wisspurr is becoming quite chatty & its getting so cute because she will always answer when spoken to as well. She has this little tiny voice that seems so odd for her size.

Kipps used to love to "talk" to anyone who would respond.  One night he came in the kitchen (his favorite place except for dad's recliner) yakking as though something had really annoyed him.  I said, "did you get his license number?"  "Noooooo.  Nawt this time, but it was some idiot kid."  You know you're supposed to stay in the house."  "I doan wannnnnaaaaah!"  And blah-blah.

I once asked him who used to live across the street from us, and ha said, "Howwwwelllll!"  That was amazing because the Howells moved away before Kipps was born.

He got out late one night when he was about 15, and would NOT come back in the house no matter what we did.  I found him in pieces all over the yard the next morning.  I was so devastated (having hysterics) that I called in sick at work.  (And got the usual, "But he was just a cat."  Damn them all.  I still resent that. He was a member of our family.)

Kiri opens the sliding closet door to get in there. We tell her 'no' when she reaches for the door now & she backs off until we're asleep. Then when Rick gets up, the door is open & they are both sleeping in the farthest corners.

Comment by Plinius on May 13, 2015 at 12:04am

Two of my cats - MauMau and Luna - showed that they knew what I wanted AND that they made their own choices.

Like this - sleeping in the wardrobe is not allowed in this house, but it is what Luna wants. So she gets into the wardrobe in a quarter of a second when I open the door.

"Luna, get out of there!"

"I can't hear you, I'm sleeping."

"Get out Luna!"

So she gets out very fast and runs rings around me, to show who's boss.

It could be a conditioned response, & some are just quicker at it than others maybe.
