I have never concidered myself a Cat Person... but since we got our daughter a cat for chirstmas I have really taken to the little "nutcase"....I don't know that I would want a house full of cats but owning one has definitely been interesting!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

oops...

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

We have 8 of them - all except 2 are outside but we rotate them. I have a cat door to my workshop and a heater going in the winter for them to get out of the elements. I have a cat door to the tack room also to keep the rodents away from the leather.

When we first moved here there were tons of chipmunks and black snakes - no more! Once in a while in the spring we'll find a baby rabbit carcass on the lawn and a squirrel or two.

I've really come to enjoy the little critters but they definitely think of people as soft furniture.

A few years ago when Jody was out of town, I drove 6 hours round trip to pick up a Pixie Bob (4th generation of a cross between a bobcat and a domestic) - this is one tough cat.

Do you have a picture of the Pixie Bob??? Sounds interesting!

An 18lb bag of dry food and all that they can catch on their own!

I'll look for one for you Amy. She looks like an evil little bobcat and the pics don't do her justice.

I have 4. Misha will eat anything wether it is edible or not but Kovu is very picky. He won't even eat hard food, it must be the soft canned food or he turns his nose up and just looks at me like "You have GOT to be kidding." ;3P

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
