It must be nice to have a normal cat...

...we have a Penfold!

A-door-able :D

I started suffering allergic reactions, sneezing, eyes itching etc and visited my GP. He asked if we had cats. I said we had 2. He explained that they were probably the cause (he was right) and maybe we should get rid of them. I pointed out that if I went home and told my wife that it was a choice between me and the cats, I didn’t know which way she would choose. So I put up with it for the next 10 years until they had both passed away. Fortunately, I was working away fro home for much of the time.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Sadly Malc, I had a similar problem. When the last of my four cats died in the 1990's I was at last free of the allergy to cat hairs that had plagued me increasingly for the previous few years and persists to this day. :confused1:

My eyes water from the moment I wake until the moment I go to sleep at night and, yes, I believe it's Hookey who's the cause. I do take an allergy tablet 365 days per year to mitigate the effects but I wouldn't be without him (or another cat).
Far rather that than a wife! :hmmm:

My wife has chest issues and is mildly allergic to our two cats, I'm always worried she'd ask me to choose.

You have to be sensible about these things and look at the bigger picture. I mean, I'd miss her, but the cats spend less.

 :whistle:

I haven't posted pics of 'my' cat. She was one of our original two sister kittens we had as feral from the local vets at about six weeks old. I named them Mayhem and Chaos. I haven't been allowed to name anything since. We lost Mayhem to a car at three years old.


Chaos is 14 now and very much 'daddy's little princess', hence the wife knows better than to ask me to choose. In much the same way I daren't ask the wife to choose between her horses and me, I don't reckon I'd get to the end of the sentence.

 ;D

Well we have 2 fur balls,

Blake who is a scrappy runt and will fight anything and then there is Sirius who apparently keeps the other half sane......

She says this as Sirius chases his tail until he vomits, these days things make more sense when it comes to the other halves decision making skills!

Here is a picture of my cat, Tilly (short for Matilda). She is not interested in birds, but is a pretty good mouser. Also keen on rounding up joggers, cyclists, and kangaroos, but her opportunities for these activities have been reduced to zero by me.

The expression on Tilly's face shows exactly what she thinks of your calling her a cat.

Having been on the receiving end of a right hook from Hookey at times, I'd hate to get the same
from your 'cat' @Webbo

Surely that's neither cat nor dog, but a reincarnation of the Egyptian god Anubis? :hmmm:

This is Jasmine who we rehomed at about 2 years old and who was wary of people for a long time. She has never become a lap-cat, but she has become very affectionate over the years. We also have 3 dogs, all of whom arrived long after she did, and there is absolutely no doubt who is boss!

Cheers,

Chris

Suki is our little cutie!  Also known as "A4 cat" because she often sleeps in a cardboard box lid from a ream of paper.  Our other cat Yoshi (featured in an earlier photo) is much larger and hence known as "A3 cat".  Both re-homed from a sanctuary a couple of years ago.

I'm not surprised she bosses the dogs Chris. It might be a trick of the perspective but somehow Jasmine looks like a giant cat! :o

Also, she has those scary, potentially evil looking, eyes just like my sister. No offence to the cat, I'm sure Jasmine is lovely.

Thanks to everyone for great pics.

Cheers weave  :beers:
