  1. we once had a long-haired cat called "Queenie". she would be this limp, loving, purring ball of cat adoration except when she was needed to chase mice. then she was an A+ #1 ace cat ninja with mice hunting skills rivaling those of a greater cat. it was awesome to behold and fun to watch!

  2. Well, I once had a cat named Roary. She was actually my daughter's cat, but she decided she was my cat. Roary was a cloudy grey tabby, and her fur felt like chinchilla fur, with a pink undertone. She was pretty much a loner - not overly cuddly, I think she thought she was a watch cat. When we first got her, we had a dog named Princess. Princess was only about 60 lbs, and when Roary was a kitten, she would stalk her and play with her. Princess didn't mind - in fact, she hardly knew Roary was there. One day, I watched Roary stalk her from under the bed. As Princess laid there, Roary lept out, and attached herself to Princess' tail. A big, long plume of a tail. She wrapped all four legs around the tail, and started biting it. Princess looked up at me, wagging her tail. Every time she wagged, she thumped Roary into the carpet. She had no idea Roary was there, and Roary wasn't giving up... Finally, I detached Roary from her tail, and she dashed off to climb the curtains... Roary was a charmer, and I miss her.

  3. I actually have never had a cat, but I do have a cat story. I was in the Air Force and had just about a week left before I got out. I had out processed base housing and was staying at a friends home to house sit while they visited their family. They had a cat and I swear the cat loved toying with me. Whenever I least expected it, he appeared right next to my head scaring the dickens out of me. I'm not sure if I could say I was fond of him or not, but he certainly left an impression on me. Thanks for the 12 Days of Christmas Jo! I hope things are going well.

  4. I never had a cat, but my in-laws have them. One of them was named Trouble. He belonged to my wonderful father-in-law, who passed away a few years ago. Trouble lived up to his name, and was always getting into trouble. But he was a loving, loyal cat to my father-in-law, and watching the two of them together was a very entertaining show.

    Trouble joined Dad about a year ago. I'm sure they're up to their antics again now.

    1. I've seen/read that blog. I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your kitty. They get so close to our hearts, don't they? Thanks for sharing, Becky.

  6. My father was allergic to cats, so no cats growing up, and now my daughter is, so no cats in my near future. Just guess I wasn't meant to be a cat lady. :-)

  7. We have a cat named Boo that we just love. He thinks he's a little boy, I swear! He stands on his hind legs and loves to look out the front windows.

    1. I've seen your cat a couple of times on your blog. He's adorable. I have photos of a friend's son standing at the window looking out with their cat, BooBoo, just like that. SO cute! Thanks for sharing, Beth!
