Julie the Cat

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before, but there's a cat at my new home.

I don't like cats, mainly because my dad hates cats, so he banned all cats and cat talk from our house when I was growing up.

Now I have to live with a cat.  It's different, to say the least.

I like my dog Snickers better than the cat.  Snickers always gets super-excited and runs to see me whenever I come home.  But Julie the cat doesn't have much interest in me, I don't think.  She's more interested in exploring my closet.

It's weird.  Every time I open my closet, Julie tries to run inside and explore, even though there's absolutely nothing to see except my clothes hamper. I have no idea why she finds it so fascinating.  It's like she expects to run inside one day and find that I've secretly been keeping a huge stash of cat food in there.

It's cute when the cat falls asleep in my lap, though.  That happened earlier today.  I felt kind of bad beacuse I had to stand up and leave.

I like cats. We have both dogs and cats here at home, but I must agree, dogs are waaaaay more affectionate.

Cats will get affectionate to you once they know you really well, but they never get as passionate and happy as dogs.

Dogs are all bouncy, and openly glad to see you. Not cats. They disguise it, and pretend they couldn't care less about you. Even when they secretly love you, they still act like that. Don't ask me why. ;)

Oh, and as for her exploring your closet? Our cats do that, so it's not unusual. I think they are attracted to closets because they're cosy, quiet places where they can just bunk down. :)

Dog are extroverts, who show their thirst for attention. Cats are introverts, who will be very cautious getting to know you and deciding whether or not they can trust you. Once a cat gets to know you, they will form an incredible bond. It's really hard to guess what they're thinking. It might not make any sense to you, but there's probably something fascinating about your closet to her.

I have all ways had a cat and a dog while growing up. I just think that it depands on the cat/dog. Our cat Star who we call Mr. Needy because he all ways wants your attention. He is a little wild at night/early morning, running like crazy while meowing! He well also lay on your chest and he'll roll around and act cute and that is so funny, specialy when it's not happening to you.

i LOVE cats! speaking of,there mine is! i like dogs,but my favorite breed is basset hounds,but i don't really care what the breed is. if i were to get a dog,it would be from the anmal shelter,because it would just be wrong to BUY any animal. i am strongly againts animal abuse. i will literally cry when those one commercials come on,the ones with all the poor animals,something to do with the humane society. i love animals. i care more about anmals than people. strange,but true. :)

I have 2 cats, and they are the cutest widdle tings evvvaaa! In the morning I get up and within 10 seconds of exiting my bedroom they're at my feet, rubbing themselves on my legs and purring. I can pick them up and hold them for hours if I want to. I've had a couple of dogs before but I prefer animals that aren't constantly siffing my crotch and scraping up my legs.

(oh, and I've met many a cat in my life, and have never been hissed at or otherwise warded off ever.)
