I've come to the conclusion that the reason my cat can be so pissy is because she's nature's perfect killing machine but, she only weighs 6 pounds and I keep picking her up and kissing her.
I have a big tom cat, indoor and out. He has caught and ate everything from tiny mice to bats and large rabbits (he loves their ears). I'm waiting for the first coon, though it probably isn't in his best interest to pick a fight with one.
Occasionally he will sleep on my lap. He was born under my bed, and I've been his dad ever since.
I love my kitties! I got a cat last February that is approximately two years old now. And two weeks ago I got a six month old kitten. They are still settling in, lots of hisses and spitting. They're getting better. I will always live with at least one cat. When I can't have a cat I don't want to hang around.
