    That cat would kill you in a second if it thought it could get away with it.

    Google "domestic cats are killers"

    Savage beasts... cute ones tho.

    One of my sons won’t entertain having a cat because he says if a cat was big enough it would kill you and eat you.
    My other son has a cat that came as part of the deal when he got married: and he has the claw-scars to prove it!

    I'm a dog person, but I have fond memories of the cats we had when I was a kid.

    My wife and I have three dogs, and I really would like to have a cat around the house, as an indoor-outdoor mouser.

    The wife is having none of it though.
    She claims to be allergic to cats, though I think she's just prejudiced.

    :(

    OP: Those are soft, calm, affectionate eyes your cat is giving you.

    Aww...:)

    We used to have boxers never knew someone that had a bad of picking out dogs and dog luck in general as we have. They all looked normal as puppies. We had one boxer that had some sort of genetic/thyroid condition and literally looked like the Arnold Schwarzenegger
    Of dogs (kind of like a Belgian blue cow) And was super jacked, she had a sister we owned at the same time that had some sort of thyroid condition also and the poor thing was the opposite and was completely stockie.
    Before we had a fence in the back yard they both chased something into the road and got hit by a car together and both died. I’ll never let another dog out without a leash or fence, they went out on their own for years before this happened.

    Then a couple years later from another breeder we got a boxer that was a show dog for a while per the breeders wishes, he did okay and retired. Well one day when he wasn’t too old he started walking with his head tilted and before we knew it he was almost walking in donuts and had no balance, we took him to the vet and at the time it was a couple thousand dollars we didn’t have just to test him, they were pretty sure he had some sort of brain tumor so we had to put him down.

    We had two other dogs that were normal as puppies and ended up having adult issues, I’ve never heard of someone having such bad luck.

    Not trying to be a downer just saying you got to be careful specifically with boxers as they are prone to cancer and such. Again not trying to be negative or looking for sympathy Your boxer just reminded me of Raven the jacked one.
    And I’ve had Lois my avatar dog for 7 years this July without issue

    What are the 2 other dogs? I like that little black one

    My alarms, Arlene (Snarlene) and Thommi (Thomasina).
    They’re both very low-key.

    They both appear,... tolerant. Which for cats is high praise indeed. Dogs have owners, cats have staff...

    You’re lucky. Often cats give you the other end.

    My daughter's cat from Hollywood, somehow when my daughter went back Jazzy stayed with me. So far she's been taking her displacement from sunny SoCal out on mice, vintage amps and vintage Avion woodwork. But I can tell she's waiting for me to die.
    Fortunately my girlfriend has a pug, I go to her house and by morning I'm really glad I have a cat.

    My wife and I have to close the bedroom door when we go to bed. Otherwise, Isabella would be rousing us at 5 AM to feed her. That ain’t even gonna happen! So, she just waits outside the door and meows very politely. I can sleep right through that.

    that's been my experience with cats vs dogs. I have extensive experience with both. My mom was a crazy cat lady, and we had a huge number of cats come through the house between my 10th and 19th years. When I moved out at 19, she had thirty three cats in our home. Out of all those cats over the years, there was only one that was a loyal companion, and she went with me when I left. Otherwise, f*ckabuncha cats

    I've always had at least one dog starting from infancy, although never thirty freaking three. The problem with cats is that they aren't dogs.

    Cool pic, John
    My McGuinn would climb on my chest and go to sleep purring like no tomorrow. A deep guttural LOUD purr. I miss him
    After we lost McGuinn, Cassie would meow to be put up on the bed as she was too old, fat, and mostly blind to jump up on the bed anymore. She would curl up really close to but not on my chest and quietly purr. I miss her

    Lilou OTOH, waits patiently and only goes down to breakfast when she can escort me down the stairs.

    I think that would be easier than our dog who often suggests we go mountain biking at 3 AM. If asking politely doesn't work she'll poke at me.
