Id like to know more.
Wait, did it actually set its own title to bot?
CATS WAS MY FAVORITE ANDREW LLOYD WEBER PLAY EVER
girlfriend really wants a cat, i would rather not have one, but her little heart would smile if I got her one.
I work 14/14, so I don't have to deal with it all the time, but I'm looking for feedback for my fears:
Do they really spray cat piss everywhere/stink up your place for eternity, suck the souls/breath from your babies, or what? I feel as though cats are evil when I look into their souls, but maybe I've just never given them a chance. Any suggestions?
Fuck cats. Fuck them so much. My goddamn cat broke his hip a few years ago, cost me a ton of money. He claws and chews fucking everything. Like charging your phone? Not in my house, shitcat will chew your charger. And somehow he doesn't die, I don't understand it. Motherfucker chews through big ass power cords and never dies. And his new thing was shitting in front of his litter box. Pristine, perfect, untouched cat litter in the box, big pile of shit in front of it. And he vomits everywhere from the shit he chews up. I hate him with the fire of a thousand suns and the only reason I haven't put him down yet is my goddamn wife. Fuck cats. fuck them.
Had a cat for 13 1/2 years, she was a stray kitten when we got her. Didnt randomly meow at all hours, didnt claw/chew up anything, didnt shit/piss in the house, didnt jump all over the place or get on counters. Seriously was the perfect cat that had the temperament of a well trained dog.

Cats tend to get a bad reputation from insecure wanna be tough guys that feel they need a co-dependent organism to validate their existence.
The thing I like about cats is that I don't have to fucking worry if I am not home at a specific time. I have even gone on vacation for a week and just made sure to put dozens of water bowls out, a big container of food, and fresh litter. You can't even leave for much over 12 hours with any dog no matter how awesome it is. I love dogs too, but being single and not wanting to be tied more to an animal's schedule than mine means cats win right now.
EDIT: karma posted while I was, didn't see him say basically the same thing I did. And on the matter of clean cat boxes...I actually purposely got mine used to a semi-dirty litter box. If you clean it every day the little fucker comes to expect that, and then when you skip a day or two, it might go outside of it. But if it expects it to be kind of dirty all the time, it will be a lot more tolerant when you go away for awhile. Or get a self-cleaning one, but you don't have to, as long as it is someplace the smell doesn't bother you.

Get a male cat and cut his balls off early, females stick their asshole right in your face.
Watching TV, here's my asshole.
Wake up in the morning, here's my asshole.
Eating dinner, here's my asshole.
Get out of the shower, here's my asshole.
Come home from work, here's my asshole.
Midnight snack, here's my asshole.
It's not good shit either. Looks more like cow shit. Traces of blood sometimes too. We know something is wrong with him, but we can't figure it the fuck out. Have taken him to two vets, nothing. Second vet was like "want to pay $800 to run a bunch of tests that might tell you what's wrong with him?". Not $800 to fucking fix him, $800 just to sorta maybe kinda know wtf is going on. Who knows if it's treatable.
Scoop the litter 3 times a day. We've got him on hypoallergenic food. We've tried prednisone. Had him tested for parasites. He's an indoor cat. We have two litter boxes. Just fucking infuriating. He'll piss in the box just fine though.
After he dies, which will probably be forever from now, I'm fucking done with uninsurable entities that don't speak english.
The breeze litter boxes are great too since you rarely have to do anything with them. You just have to shovel the shit out once or twice a day depending on your cat because that does stick, but it uses a pad below for the piss and it really does block the piss smell. I just switch out the pads every two weeks on garbage day and the pellets every month and voila done. Oh also, cats are assholes.
We been using breeze for about two months, solid system.

Cats are awesome. I wish I could have one, but not cool in this apartment.
Its been mentioned before, but like any pet, you get what you put into it.
Cats are spiteful, though. Pretty sure they know if you hate them, and they'll find ways to annoy you further.
Be the one to feed the cat, brush it, or play with it using a laser pointer or string every-so-often...and it will be cool with you.
They're great because they don't need constant attention. They'll fuck off and do their own thing.

Cat Genie looks cool but my cat ( a very large main coon, seriously...not fat, just huge) pee's like a gallon at a time so it's not something that's really scoopable. I end up just changing the litter every 4 days.
I wish he pee'd scoopable piles, seriously looks like a fire hose went off in the littler box sometimes.
I like my cat because he is such a jerk and I think he does things like puke on the carpet and push things off the table because he hates us.
It's fun to impart evil motives on him when in reality he is just an idiot who doesn't clean himself properly and derps around the house.
My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet is great for watching evil Satan cats and how they address behavioral issues. Nothing better than seeing some chick crying about having to kick her boyfriend / husband out of the house because the damn cat just won't get along with him. Meanwhile my cat is awesome. He doesn't get on counters, scratch up the furniture, or wake us up at night, etc... We got him at 3 months old and basically just made sure he had enough of "his" toys to play with and scratch, so he didn't feel compelled to scratch up our stuff. Then I built him this six story cat tower with scratching post, danging toy, and he lives up there. At night he sleeps on the end of our bed and when the alarm goes off in the morning he moves up top and curls next to whoever's is going off earliest that morning.
But I will have a dog dammit... I will...
Just like the other posters have said, you get what you put into your cat. I also suggest getting a kitten and going from there. It's much easier to train your cat if you start young.
Currently I have one cat, thinking about getting another to keep her company. She is a Maine coon. She's a talkative cat, follows me around the house most of the time, sleeps under my bed and wakes up with me and my alarm. I have no problem with her spraying but I got her fixed early.
Oh and the best invention ever is the electric cat box. Virtually no cleaning necessary, just empty the recepticale on a regular basis.
I totally understand your pain. Once this cat dies, which may be any day now if he chews up one more fucking power cord, I am NEVER, ever getting another cat. I may go for a dog, it has been a while since I had a dog and I always had one growing up. But that will be a while from now, I need a break from animals.
Cats are awful. Being extremely allergic might color my opinion but I don't see why you would want this pest brought into your home. Choose a pet that doesn't have complete disdain for your every thing.
Honestly, the main thing I hated about cats was the litter situation. Now that we use the breeze system it doesn't bother me at all and is super easy so we'll probably have cats forever as my daughter loves them.
Any ideas of how to keep cats out of a garden?
yea, that ain't right.
I have 3 cats, but this is my little girl Goose:
How are hairless cats for people with allergies?
Not everything on the internet is true - Abraham Lincoln
Now I live in a house without a garden and I feel I can't keep a cat because of that.
Seriously, they are the best fucking things in the world and I will never go without one again. No litter box smell, no dumping litter. It uses these washable granules instead of litter and automatically cleans itself out and washes itself. The only work you have to do is replacing cartridges when they get low and flushing a toilet if that's where you have the waste pipe going to.
Crossover from the science thread!
mechanisms behind allergy are obscure to modern medicine. Fuck you, Mr. Party pooper, it's a chance cat lovers would take 100/100 times - especially since price on specific therapy is much lower in recent years than when it was discovered (duh).
Insert random cat :-)
Fucking AMAZING, Ben.
Also hairless cats are an awesome excuse for this:
My wife won't let me put our horrible fucking cats outside because we have a lot of strays in the area that she claims will kill him. A giant 18 pound cat. I said "Good" at first but of course she wasn't having it.
$300 on a litter box? Fuuuuuuck.
You can also get it from the site for like 150 + a year of payments and you get a years worth of supplies sent to you with it.

Here's a picture of the Cat Tree I built for him. Was maybe less than $100 in materials and not too hard to work out. He loves it and it helps to keep him off the tables / counters b/c he can get up high. Would like to get some shelves to kind of create him a walking path up high as well, just not sure how to do it without it looking tacky.
yeah I am planning to build my fuckhead a new scratching post, but I have a lot of shit on my plate right now. I found some pretty good plans online and have a few ideas on my own.
Also YMMV of course with citrus. Here is what it looks like when they dislike the smell:
Video is loud for some reason, turn down volume - it's not my upload, just a random demonstration.
Built that over last weekend from lumber I had left from some jobs. Made the 3 cushions from bed foam/material from walmart. Total cost:$17.36
Anyways I got a problem. I've always had cats up to 6 for many years, currently 4 and although I know a ton about their behavior I have never had a issue that I do now and am hoping someone else has had something similar happen.
I rescued a cat called Poppy last fall. She is super loving and is overall a excellent cat with one exception.
She poops and pees outside the litter box. Thankfully she no longer goes on carpet/wood and goes to the shower. She gets in litter boxes, looks around , sniffs and then goes outside it.
I have used brand new boxes only she had access too( locked in room for weeks at a time ) 8 in fact in total. Open top, closed top, top entrance, different sizes and shapes.
I have used 11 different kinds of litter, no scent, scented, pellets, paper, wood, even the cat attract brands.
If the litter and box is BRAND new she will use it, for about a day then never go back to it again.
I have never returned a pet to a shelter but she has got to learn to use the box. I've had her 7 months now.
I've never had one so stubborn but otherwise she is probably in the top 3 cats I've had out of 14.
That is actually pretty good for the price. Most of the time they are outrageously expensive.
That site still says its roughly $33 a month after the buy in, which is still silly imo.
The buy in for the unit + supplies for the first year is 150 + 33x 9 or 39x 9 depending on how big of a supply package you get, you only pay 10 months out of the year, not all 12.
Still way more then $2.25 a week. 5 minutes worth of work doesn't equal the cost to me. -shrug-
No, but if I don't have to spend money then I don't.
Also after 10 years of kids, nothing in a cat box is worse then what I've faced in a diaper.

Gross. Cat pee lover.
I have that same 'cat tree' that Sean has. They love it. Here are my two cats. Arnold(grey tabby) and Willis(torty). This was a few months ago, so they are a bit bigger now(and a lot more annoying - nothing is safe in my house now!).
Just going to post this again because it seems I haven't since we moved boards, but if you have a store that carries it near you (typically a feed store, but some Petco/Petsmart stores have them too I think, although I can't guarantee it will be anywhere near as cheap), chick start (literally baby chicken feed) is the best fucking cat litter you will ever use. And the cheapest. I pay $15 for a 50-lb bag, and it is comparable to the highest quality clumping litters you can buy. I'm not kidding, google it and you'll get dozens of sites where people say the same thing. I learned about it when my sister went to a rescue on a farm where they had 30+ cats and used chick start because litter was eating up way too much of their budget. And it works better.
I've got two cats, one of which is a fucking 29-lb monster that pisses like a firehose, and this stuff works great. In theory you can dump it in the toilet if you want as well since it is all biodegradable and doesn't have any clay in it to fuck up your pipes (unlike most other clumping litter), but I bag it and throw it away in the hopes that the bums digging through the dumpster in my complex tear it open when trying to dig out soda cans.
I haven't ever precisely measured it but I know that 50-lb bag lasts me at least 3 months, probably over 6 months if it were only one normal sized cat. For $15. Why people still use regular litter after hearing about this stuff, I really don't understand.
EDIT: Granted, I let them mess it up more than most people so they don't get too finicky, but even if it only lasts half as much for someone else, that's cheaper than anything else you can name.

Hah, one of my two 14 year old grumpy bints will come into any room where I am and yowl at me until I change the cat litter if its not to her standard. If I don't do it pronto she will then proceed to either piss in the bath or shit on the floor in front of the litter tray as a gentle reminder.
I go through an 8l bag of litter about every week and a half or so. Still it only costs about 3 bucks (1.69 in UK money).
Yeah, what is he a lion cub? Holy fuck. When my big cat was 20 lbs most people said he was the biggest cat they'd ever seen.
Last edited by Sean; 04-13-2013 at 05:38 AM. Reason: We don't post dead animals, asshole
Anyway, I don't have any good pics to show his size really, and I'm not going to pick him up and let him hang or stretch him out like some of those other big cat pics you see around the internet. He would fuck me up with his frantic struggles, and probably have a heart attack as well. So I took a picture of both cats in their favorite spot...which is my favorite spot too, of course. They both grab that spot whenever they can, and I practically have to push them off to sit down when I want to watch TV.
For comparison, the smaller white one (Amira) is about 10 lbs. or so. The big one is Rocky, and that is a 12" ruler/paint stirrer laying next to him so you can get an idea of size. And yeah he needs brushing. He can't lick all of the spots he used to so I have to keep him brushed, but I wanted to grab this pic while he was in the right spot, so he's a little dirty from rolling around under my bed (he barely fits, but loved it when he was a kitten and still thinks it is awesome I guess). He'll lick Amira, but she sort of hates him and only tolerates him because he just avalanches her when they play/fight, so my hope of them cleaning each other isn't going to happen.
Yeah we had a huge tomcat that was a badass and we named him Arnold Schwartakitty and he would beat up coyotes that came on the back porch.
One week we found him next to his water/food dishes with his head swollen up 3 times as big and drooling. He had been bitten in the face by a snake or stung by a scorpion is all we could figure. We put him in the garage with his dishes and he laid there for three days and then went back to being a badass. He was about as big as that black cat in your pic and was also black with the same white accents, maybe he was reincarnated?

change in the inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations' (!). How do you judge him stronger from tissue damage and severe pain? No other creature is better of with serious pain, not even ourselves :S A vet can do something about the wound / swelling / inflammation and ultimately ease the creatures pain. Taking him to the vet does not mean putting them down in my book - quite the opposite
I don't disagree the evolution comment was snarky. We never took an animal to a vet ever in our lives. If we saw it was in too much pain we put it down. The coyotes did in most of the animals eventually though.

I am thinking on buying this cat. Before I hear tons of bitching about shelters and all that bullshit as an American here in Germany shelters don't adopt cats out to us. They think that every American just leaves and abandons their cat at the runway.
I love how angry he looks.

Awesome, love the race, fur is super soft, gentle temper.
