Thanks@Jason, fair dinkum, I'm los'n it, I couldn't see it for the life of me.
For the record, Tania & I are dog lovers, but our vet has a couple of resident cats that have the run of the place, & they're super cool.
Our dog was sitting on my lap waiting for the call up, & Tuna Breathe (the cat) slinked along the back of the bench seat, then glid from the armrest & snuggled between Lochie & me. Lochie didn't bat an eyelid, so we were all pretty cosy.
I have both a cat and a dog, but if I could only have one, I'd have to say that I am
In my opinion, dogs are predicable, whereas cats -you never know what kind of attitude they are going to give you.
@Deanna, you dump on dogs because they're predictable???
May I ask what's your favourite day?
Anyways, I've worked you out, you hate paying dog registration, having a house trained pet that doesn't use a putrid inside litter box, your neighbourhood birds make too much noise & poop on your windows, you have an invasive mouse problem, pet walking & the drudgery of pooper scooping is inconvenient, & the bliss of a pet that contributes to the proliferation of ferals, that don't rely on social welfare.
@Andy_Mann My favourite day is payday, which I hope to be replaced with the day I won the Lottery day LOL
My cat has his own uniqueness. Winston is a rescue cat that thinks he's a dog. Before we moved in June, when I walked Penny (Cavoodle) he would follow us right up to the sandy path down to the beach. He would wait at the toilet blocks for us to come back, and follow us back home.
Winston has his collar with a bell to warn the birds, and Penny, that he's approaching. His litterbox is outside, as he think's he's to good to be confined to a box. There is a box for emergencies when he's in overnight.
When my three green tree frogs croak, he runs to their tank - OK admittedly he swipes his paws on the glass
If Penny is out back, Ive seen Winston stalk her, run up and swipe her on the behind, and take off and come back and do it again because Penny hasnt worked it out LOL
This cat is too cool not to side with - just dont tell Penny LOL
If they ever make another Cats v Dogs movie, my Winston should audition.
@Deanna, well done, I didn't see that Payday & Lotto win coming, & I've been chuckling about it ever since.
Funny thing about bells on collars, Darcy (our current older dog) had a bell on his collar to warn Lochie (our gentle older dog at the time) that trouble was approaching. Thing is, we left the bell on Darcy's collar, it was a reminder of what he was like, but by neccessity, Connor our new pup has a bell too, but it's to warn everyone.
