We're not sure what was going through our crazy cats head when we turned her ears inside out!

My wife, when we married, came with Osiris, a husky black shorthair who loved my wife and grew to tolerate me. His vet jacket was stamped CAUTION in half-inch red letters. Smartest cat we ever had. A two-person cat, he didn’t like adults and loathed children. He’d chomp your calf when he wanted food, and waited, drooling, on the kitchen floor at Thanksgiving until the turkey was ready. No one dared approach him. He lived to be 21, setting standards for all our future felines. We had some great cats, but none matched Osiris.

This cat was almost a dog. It knew the sound of my truck & would run out to greet me when I came home from work! When i was home it would check in with me every 20 minutes by rubbing up against my leg.

She would alert us to anyone around our place & was really interested in dogs.  Good mouser that would growl on the hunt!

Dogs were created to serve you. You were created to serve cats.

I'd really like to have another cat, a mature one, 8+ years is fine.
I'd even take two if that was their circumstance.
I'm no longer prepared for the 3 AM enthusiasm of kittens.

I tried one a couple of weeks ago.
He hid beneath the basement stairs for 4 days (no food/water/litter box).
So I had him caught and taken away. Met him = really nasty, hissy claws.

Just hang out with me. Tuna time is 5 PM and a slurp. Maybe some beef/bison/chicken/fishy raw.
Prowl around where ever you like. Snooze, nap and sleep anywhere you please.
Try not to claw up the furniture any more than it is.
Don't poop in the big tree pots or climb the trees in the living room.
There are several litter boxes.
You can sleep on the bed with me. The new electric blanket is magical.

bubbalouie I had two Manx brothers marked just like your cat. I worked late shift welding until about 2am. I would come home to "gifts."
Manx gifts: corn on the cob, cinnamon rolls, big ones, and baked potatoes, all things that I would eat. I always wanted to see them hauling corn home for me. I slept in the backyard that year and they would keep me from what? Owls?
When they were kittens, they were too small to get on the counter top, so they would do bank shots off the wall to get up there.

Then in Arizona, I had two more manxes, they climbed ladders, dribbled bumblebees, ran the rooftops and caught snakes we didn't even know were there. They made friends with two widows next door who would wait for the morning paper together and purr for them.

I heard of a bulldog and a manx becoming neighborhood patrol partners, every day, they worked together.

They needed a study for this? I'd be much more interested in a test that tells me a cat is NOT psychotic.

Cats are just trying to figure out a way to eat you without getting themselves hurt in the process

I’m convinced that the cat whose house I’m allowed to share is a snoropath.

Our little Shelby (a.k.a. Schlubby) was always easygoing and tolerant. On the vet's table the most she did was a little mew when the thermometer went you-know-where. But she's been a good mouser (this fall she caught four in one day - two in about a half-hour). And she's ambitious. The Mrs. heard her growling like she'd just seen prey. The Mrs. looked out for a chipmunk or squirrel and didn't see anything, then looked farther and saw a deer! Seems the kitty has problems with scale.

After the dog died she seems to have taken on a lot of his characteristics and become more insistently needy. She especially "needs" us to turn the tap on so she can take a drink - whichever tap it happens to be.

We adopted one that had been fully declawed (I know, super cruel). She would insist on going outside and many times returned inside with a live mouse in her mouth. This, in turn would interest the dogs and often she would just drop the mouse and the chase was on. Once, I relieved her of a mouse and was holding it by the tail when the basenji dog came up to sniff it and the mouse grabbed the dog's nose. She flipped her head, pulled the mouse out of my hand and sent it flying only to apparently disappear into the air. Several hours later I found the mouse on the counter (likely where it was flipped) hiding behind the blender. That cat caught and killed many a ground squirrel too, again, despite not having any claws.

Thankfully, of the 5 cats I've lived with, none was a psychopath.

Nah, I'm catless at the moment but I've met plenty of psychopathic cats with which to make the comparison. wink

I think most cats are merely sociopaths. angel

When my wife was a kid in the 1970’s their family cat permanently decamped next door when the neighbour had central heating installed. And to rub it in the cat would sit there gloating at them from next door’s lounge window.

Isn’t that more a propensity to take the p**s rather than a diagnosis of psychopathy?

My cat "Dave" is 22lbs. He is very friendly, but don’t cross him.

The book entitled "How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You" explains everything.

I think psychopathic pets are animals residing with psychopathic owners. Our attitudes affect out pets, just like they do our children. The increasing number of mentally maladjusted pets reflects the deteriorating social conditions in our society.

Here is another "when I was young" story, so if you are adverse to this type of conversation, leave this post. Many years ago, you would see animals traveling with groups of youngsters. They were considered mascots and receive attention and affection. You don't seem many groups of youngsters traveling together outdoors today. Especially when being accompanied by one or more friendly dogs. I think the companionship of some animals can have a positive affect on individuals social/mental attitudes.

In ancient Egypt, cats were worshiped as GODS.


A recent scientific study reveals that the majority of cats think that this system should be continued in modern times.

Ted Kaczynski and his brother were raised in the same household, by the same parents, and both got higher education degrees.   Ted got his from Harvard. 

I'm really tired of the "It's the parent's fault" argument.  Parents have really very little influence on their children, compared to all the other influences.  Peer influence is the highest.
