Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Yeah, I got one too. Name's Fluffy. Now I wouldn't have given her that name, but it came with. I knew we were gonna get a cat when at a dinner party Our Hostess asked Missus "Do you guys want a cat?" Missus replies "Oh, maybe." Translation: "Sure thing." I don't have a picture of her, but for years, we thought she might be a Norwegian Forest Cat, but she's too small. Then we thought she might be a Main Coon; again too small. Turns out she's actually what is called a Domestic Longhair. Durndest thing I ever did see. She's got two coats; the long hair on the outside, and a sort of fine, wooly one underneath next to her skin. She has to be fed about a half teaspoon of plain yogurt at 9:00 PM sharp, and must be brushed at 10:15 PM and woe betide me if I'm late with the brushing. Her favorite thing? Going outside, eating grass, coming inside and barfing all over the livingroom carpet. Nice cat though. Even if she refuses to be picked up and cuddled. Won't sit on your lap, either, unless she thinks of it before you do. And then only IF you're wearing her favorite bluejeans.
