LOL.

I was actually "good" today because the significant other left late for work, so I "HAD" to shower and get dressed. No Earl Grey tea in my PJ's today, I'm afraid.

Does the cat like to get under blankets and such? My previous cats did not like to be covered by blankets.

One time my cat started it's day by eating out of my dad's cereal bowl.

Oh, she does that constantly this time of year. We have two comforters - one stays on the bed all the time, and the other we fold up and leave it at the foot of the bed - she burrows her way in there. I often wonder how the heck she breathes under all that blanket.

Our new kitten gets under my covers, but with her head still on the pillow.

Cute cat.

Ours is entirely anti-social but has this weird habit of wanting to lick our legs after a shower. He has his own water bowl, and we leave a sink dripping for him... but for some reason he licks our legs as if he'd been without water for a week. Maybe he thinks he's helping us to dry off, no idea... but cute. :)

My late cat used to curl up in the bathroom sink. Was a real bitch getting her out so I could brush my teeth and shave.

My sister's cat does exactly the same. I wonder why they like it so much?

glad to see someone else with a cat of similar behavior...two of my three cats wait for me outside the shower every morning. There is a cat water bowl, and an accessible dog water bowl, however, after I open the shower door, they run in and lick the warm shower water from any place they can reach, with out getting paws too wet...:D

I have 1 cat who is addicted to nicotine. After coming inside form smoking a cigarette, she would go crazy to try and lick our fingers to get the nicotine (I guess) from them. Now that I've quit smoking she goes doubly crazy on my wife (still a smoker).

And then there's Logan, who like earwax. A lot. <gross>

I don't remember, but it was recent. He's always had a penchant for cleaning his sister's (the cat-smoker) ears.. and I think I just wiggled my finger in my ear and stuck it in his face. Now we can bribe him into sitting in our laps by pretending to stick a finger in our ears. He's very pretty and not terribly smart. :)

that's excellent...rotflmao :D

our largest male cat [gunther] isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer either...his 'favorite' thing to do is jump up and grab the door jam, then just hangs there.

I don't know if someone said this already, (to lazy to read), but it maybe that it's cooler in the sink. Like it's colder.

ugh. I'm so tired, and i'm so "out of it"

no, nobody did, but I agree, it's cool, secure like a bed, and from a higher vantage point.

My family has cats (up to three of them (and a bird) at one time). A few years ago I moved back into my mom's house for a few months and discovered what the youngest cat does. When I had lived in the house before I was upstairs, but this time I was in the basement. At approx 4:45 to 5:00am Prince would start running laps around the main floor of our house. Image the pitter, patter, pitter, patter, silence (as he jumps up on couches, sofas, tables and chairs in his way), landing, pitter, patter. He keeps this up until someone comes out of their room or until 6:30am. If someone does come out of their room he makes sure to lie down directly in front of your path so that you will trip over him on your way to the bathroom. This ensures that he gets a full stomach rub first thing in the morning before he goes off to do other catly things.

He also hates being under blankets unless he has gotten himself under there or there is something else moving underneath that he can chase (like another cat or a hand).

THATS EXACTLY WHAT MY CAT DOES!
At 5:00am EVERY morning he runs around the house like he was on crack. And plus we have hard-wood floors all over our house so when he tries to stop himself or turn all you hear is a big BAM. haha.

Aww! Pictures of cats make me smile. I have two. One of them is HUGE. The nicest cat I've ever owned, though. The other one is thin, and wild. Only let's you pet him at certain times. They both love each other to death. It's so cute to watch the two extremes get along so well.

He always jam himself into crowded places, alot of fun to look at him when i trying to sleep in the most harded places of the house.
He always climbes up on my desk and sits on my cable modem, the modem i really hot when he moves away from there ;)

I'm just across the water in Wales, but I'm in Bristol a fair amount.

She had liver problems basically she was the runt of the litter (Yeah we know not to ever get the runt but she was a real sweetie :D ) It meant that her body didnt produce any new red blood cells from birth so slowly her energy levels dropped and dropped. The mind was willing but she was just too tired to do even a short trip to the shops. In the end after the vet discovered what was wrong there was only one option :(

I used to live in cardiff still try to visit there when I can. :)
