Re: Show Me Pictures Of Your Pets!


Cats have their moments. My BIL used to have one that was the sweetest, most cuddly thing. She would play fetch for hours too.

But if he broke routine and didn't come home for a day or two, every single time he would find the roll of TP in the bathroom completely unrolled and shredded to pieces.

A roll of toilet paper is a cheap pet sitter.

Re: Show Me Pictures Of Your Pets!


BTW: If you want to train a cat, use a spray bottle with water that will shoot a stream. When they do something that you don't want them to, say "no" sternly and squirt them. They will stop immediately and eventually learn to stop just when you say "no". Using this technique they don't get mad at you because they are not sure what's happening. IMO with dogs you can use positive reinforcement, but with cats you need to use negative reinforcement because they just don't care.

Re: Show Me Pictures Of Your Pets!


I've had very limited success with training cats with respect to general behavior. The spray bottle does work well if you're in the room to use it. But the majority of my experience is that as soon as you're absent, your wishes are pretty much irrelevant and the cat reverts to its own moral code.

Some day when I'm bored, I'll relate the saga of my attempt to teach one to use the toilet.

Re: Show Me Pictures Of Your Pets!


Our old black lab died several months ago. Soon after, deer started coming right up to the house and I knew they would destroy my garden this year. I needed another dog to keep them away.


The people that own the cabinet shop I install for every week had this pup, and I could tell someone was beating her. I made friends with her and she would come running to me every time I pulled in the drive.


One day the shop owner said they had too many dogs, so I immediately said "I'll take that one". She's doing a great job. No deer even near the yard since we got her. When I'm working in the shop, she waits outside the door until I'm done.

I think that's like the cutest dog ever.

Don't tell mine I said that.

Cleo is like my dogs. Give them 30 feet and they'll keep 5 feet of it. Usually the other 25 are in the flower beds or wrapped around a tree.

My mutts as I sit on the porch tonight. Adopted the black one 6 years ago from a shelter. Rescued the brown one 2 years ago from the local pound when he was 10 weeks old! Both have been great pets for our family.

This pretty much depicts everything you need to know about how our cats feel about each other. Close, but not that close.

This is my sweet Keiko. I folded up a drop cloth and threw it on the chair in the shop. Keiko thought I had made her a little nest and she hopped up and stayed there for at least five minutes.
