Dogs are awesome. I haven't had a dog since my collie died. He had this ingrained need to nip us if we ran around..
So do you know what he started doing? Whenever someone started to run he would first get excited and then stop and look around. He would find the
nearest stick or toy and put it in his mouth, then he would just ram us with that instead of biting.
He also knew different peoples names.. Where's Joe? He'd look around the room and count people with his nose.. "Where is Joe? Berrrr?" Haha.. The Look
on his face one day when I walked in the kitchen to see the whole floor white with paw prints all over.. His face was completely powdered up.. He
looked so guilty that I couldn't get mad at him.. didn't want to hurt his feelings..
My cat I have now thinks he's a dog.. He never had a mommy cat, so he almost died. We rescued him, so he was never very cat like. He only recently
figured out that his burying instinct was meant to be inside the litter box for it to work.. Little goofer.
He has a bunch of different meows. He only meows to talk actual words. He doesn't ask for food, and he knows a bunch of words.. He even knows
sentences. He has a favorite song.. It was his bedtime song when he was weeks old.. "Falling
. Whenever I play that he smiles at me. He really loves music. Has good taste too.
I talk to him all the time, and he talks back which is probably the main reason he knows how to talk so well. If I could understand his meows in more
detail we could have full blown conversations. It ends up I am better at talking and he is better at hearing.
The funniest thing is that we have an extra "office" that we told him was his room. He waited till he thought we were not looking and he sat there all
happy smiling at it. I hung up all our artwork in there and he'll spend hours staring at each picture separately. Do you like the art? "Yes
He likes to be near me, but he's not a clingy cat. He's more like a party cat. He's gotta be where all the people are. Especially if we play loud
music. He likes to lay on the couch where he has his back up against me and his arm and head wrapped over my girl's leg. He used to only be able to
sleep if he was touching both of us.
It sucks when he gets in trouble though.. He gets back at me, usually right away, and he is a fast flying ninja kitty, woah.. When I had to teach him
not to get on tables we had a couch backed up to the kitchen table (college living haha).. He would sit on the back of the couch and reach his paw at
the table and stare up at me.. "I'm not touching it.. hehe" Hey man don't touch the table.. "I'm so cwose look.. But I'm not touching it.. heh
Funny little dude..
My girlfriend was sick the other day and he kept asking me if she was ok.. And he knows when she's getting off work everyday too.
I could go on and on and on...
But, I'll leave yall with this:
Can't wait to get a doggy friend for him.. I already tested him and he loves dogs and hates cats, so we're all good to go.
Dogs are the BEST.
