  1. I am an intuitive also! I intuitively know when June Buggie is on a tear and get outta the way!

  2. My goodness. I love routine..I love seeing that mommy adhers to routine where I'm concerned and I love to nap and sleep near or on her. I detest getting wet too. Ewwwww, and don't do that again, please and thank you, Mom.

  3. I think Charlie agrees with these survey results! LOL! Take care

  4. Cute stuff! It's funny that kitties hate getting wet so much, yet they LOVE to dip their paws in my drinking glass, play with the water in the toilet, sit in the wet sink, and stir their water bowl with their paws and make giant waves that end up as a puddly mess on the floor... is there any answer as to why they do that?!!

  5. I think I've heard her show on Sirius radio.

  6. Great idea and great post, CatChat! Bocci claims that he can't figure out what the heck Bella is thinking-especially when she swats him!

  7. At The Lounge, "Irritating Your Siblings" would prolly take first place!

  8. thanks everyone for stopping by! Sorry I haven't been around for a few days, the birthday celebration continues!! I should be back around visiting everyone on Monday (I hope!)

  9. I hate it when Mom purrposely flings water drops on me if I'm behind her at the sink. That was NOT in her training. pffffssst

  10. Oh we have Temptations over here too, Sookie and Mr Darcy come running for them! Hope you are enjoying our birthday celebrations :)

  11. I enjoyed reading this Q & A! I think my boys definitely want to be treated right now! And they like to talk with me :-)

  12. Caren, I rescuedan abused/neglected cat from a shelter. When I brought him home he hid under the bed and I had to feed him on a paper plate and slide it under the bed same with the water in a tupperware thing. He only came out to potty and went right back. It's been several years and now he is confident and cuddly. I look at him sometimes and it brings tears to my eyes knowing he finally feels safe. I often wonder exactly what he went through, and I'm just so lucky to have him be part of my life and family.

  13. I like to be CLOSE TO but never ON my Human. Also, I am definitely a main meal guy--I never met a treat I would eat. I really enjoy the fact that the Human has spent half her 401k buying different ones for me to try, MOL!

  14. Hmmmmm! It's Temptations that Austin goes literally crazy for! I had to stop him eating them lol

  15. We love to nap, eat and play in that order. We do love to go outside. Great post. Thanks for that info.

  16. I really take my hat off to Sonya - I admire anyone who takes the time to try and sense/feel/translate what an animal is trying to communicate. And they so obviously do. I love taking time trying to sense and register what a given cat might want to communicate. I guess it's been a lot of trial and error but they for sure have their own subtle ways of letting us know - if only we want to listen. Great feature!!

  17. My boys would probably agree with the survey, although Sammy would say his biggest pet peeve is being combed and brushed.

  18. Interesting! We don't roam; we snitch! LOL!
