I always wanted a hairless sphynx. I would name him "Fleshy" and in the dream he's hyper friendly so when friends and family come over they are greeted by a purring little alien that freaks them out.

The Sphynx breed is friendly/courious by nature. We have had Bela 6 years.
Tobias was a retired breeder that we had for a year before liver cancer took him.
Bela will be at the front door greeting people with the dogs if she is not under the bed covers sleeping. If someone comes in the house and sits down she is straight into their laps.
It is alot of fun to mess with people who have never seen one in the flesh.
We have had some people scream and move away which only makes Bela come towards them again to see what's up.
I'm an auto tech and have told people that the cuts on my hand are from holding the cat down to shave it. That gets some great looks from people that don't know they are born hairless.

For the past eight or so months there's been a cat hanging around my office. I tarted feeding her but she wouldn't let me get any closer than about ten feet. The past couple weeks she became much friendlier and let me almost pet her. Today I finally broke the petting barrier and within 20 minutes of the first pet she was inside my office laying in my lap. Never buy of scratched me, just purred and loved all over me. Guess I have a new pet.

The Turd
I've had several cats, but none as connected to me as this guy. He's my buddy and tends to be wherever I am. Very in-tune with my emotions, too, never intrusive but always present and usually doing his own thing, too. I love this guy. His "real" name is Keowyn, but his actions defined what we actually call him. When polite company is around, he is "Turdle".

The cat will literally jump into the box and just sit there with a bemused expression on his/her face, until deciding, "ok, enough of that," and then hop out and go on with their little kitty life.

Sorry, jrstacy's last picture just made me think of this...

Meet Brewer's Assistant Lola. He's an outdoor cat we have had since 2002. He has worked faithfully in my brewery for the past 11 years. Obviously, there was some confusion in his gender when he was named. But if you know the Kinks, it works.

And everybody has a cat walk right?
Shelfs about a foot down from the ceiling covered in carpet with holes cut through the walls. The dogs and cats get along great. It's just a blast for the cats.

That is just awesome! I built my cat a 7 foot carpet covered pole with a perch on top. It is placed next to a window. Will post pics tomorrow.

I am looking so much less crazy now.

We emptied a hall closet, cut a hole in the door, kilzed the closet and put the litter boxes in there. We were using wheat but just switched to walnut. Wheat was good. Real good. Better than any clay. Sales rep gave us a coupon for the walnut. May as well try. Pine and newspaper pellets sucked royal. Crystals cost way too much.

I made a cat house from an 80s style end table, some misc wood and burlap. They like to pull down the burlap and hide on it on a shelf by the window. They won't use the box house though. I think they want another opening in it.

And they like hiding in the coffee table and in the secret drawer of the sofa.

We bought them a rope covered scratch post but they won't use it. They like the real split log.
