I really enjoy my cats. The kitten keeps bringing me her toys and hard candy that she likes to play with. The adult cat nuzzles my face if I make kissing sounds at her. They're soft, cuddly, and fun, but can also entertain themselves very well if I have shit to do.

Cats are like children to me, they're ok and I can pet them as long as they're someone else's.
>>2058348 >>2058348 >live trap This is a good long term solution if you don't mind calling animal control or taking them to the control center in the event they won't pick it up. In some areas, by local ordnance, you're not even allowed to have 'outdoor' cats because the threat they pose to local wildlife (mostly birds, but really to almost all small animal life).
But you can also get a dog, use a low powered pellet gun, get a motion censors that activate a loud noise/flash, or use an automatic sprinkler system.
I think cats are literally the perfect animal. All felines, wild or domesticated. I'm not trolling. I'm not a crazy cat person either. But cats are genuinely perfect in my eyes. I don't hate a single thing about any of them. Not even the threat of getting toxoplasmosis gondii.
>>2058533 You've obviously never met a cat that didn't like you. Not trying to be an ass but all animals have traits that aren't becoming. Cats can fuck you up if they want too. Hope you don't get bitten and end up in the hospital with an infection. ;)
>>2058421 >not being able to take them for a hike I've seen cats on hikes before, and walks. I believe they were called Burma adventure cat or something. I don't agree with most of their actual pet care, but it's possible. Almost all cats are perfectly capable of being leash trained if you're actually willing to take care of one. If you acquire an adult, it's less likely, but still very possible. >biting for no reason Just like dogs, this isn't true. It means you've fucked something up or you're making your cat mad. >UTI's Again, probably your fault. If your cat gets frequent UTI's, you're not feeding enough wet. >spitefully pees/poops outside litter box Cats need multiple litterboxes, especially in a multi-cat household. If you only supply one litterbox, again, your fault. I've found this behavior is almost always easily remedied by more frequent cleanings and more litterboxes in different locations. >random dead gifts First of all, they're not gifts. They're bringing their prey to a safe place, which is the home they're supposed to be contained in correctly. However, they don't actually want it so they leave it. Second, keep your cat inside you fuck.
Continual proof cat owners are fucking incompetent. I love cats. I hate almost every cat owner I've ever met. The standard in cat care is so absurdly low, it baffles me. With dogs, I still hate about 50% of the owners I meet.
Cats in general feel really gross to touch. I hate how the grease sticks to your hands. Feral/outdoor cats have cost me quite a lot in property damage so I've built up quite a strong dislike. I can't can't say I hate the species as a whole.
>>2058822 See, all that's well and good, but the concept of owning an animal that NEEDS multiple places to shit in your house, thus terraforming it into a biodome of catshit-smell isnt something I feel like accepting in exchange for the occasional purr or cuddle.
I dont think many cat people realize just how horrible their house/apartments smell.
>>2058276 They can be cool. I had one that was a great ratter even though she was tiny. The other cat I had was retarded. I had to smear hotsauce on every wire in the house that she could reach because nothing else would stop her from chewing them in half. She escaped overnight one time . My dogs found her the next day hopelessly tangled in the honeysuckle. Poor stupid thing. She died last year. cancer
>>2058822 >keep your cats indoor yeah sure, imprison it I want to treat my cat as I would want to be treated. Have a life of knowledge and adventure, but don't care if I die sooner because of it. I don't have the right to decide the life of my cat
Help me /an/ I don't want to make a separate thread for this, so i'll hijack this one.
In short, I used to have the litter box in the laundry room next to the noisy machines. My room mate complained that the cat peed eveywhere, but since I moved to a dark, quiet place she started using it again and has not peed elsewhere. My room mate's stupid fucking bitchy sister in law came in to stay for a week and she heard us talk about the cat pee situation and out of the blue one day she complained that she smelled cat pee. She's never had a cat, she doesn't know what cat pee smells like, she's smelling something else but doesn't know what so she jumps on the band wagon and says it's the cat. Now he doesn't want her on the furniture anymore, so any time he sees her on furniture he fucking manhandles her off, and won't listen when I say it's okay.
How do I convince my room mate that the cat is fine now? He's almost thinking of getting rid of her.
I like cats. They're soft, like to be handled, don't really smell, and most aren't as needy as dogs. they're pretty low maintenance house pets. feral cats are a bit of another story but as far as people owned cats i like them
>>2060873 Funny how nobody says anything like this about dogs.
Dogs smell putrid no matter how often you wash them. Dogs have no regard for their own cleanliness and would gladly eat poop out of a litter boss and drag it all around the house. Cats on the otherhand don't smell bad at all unless you're a lazy piece of shit who doesn't know how to clean a litter boss. You cat shouldn't be walking on it's own shit ever and even if it does then it's completely sucked dry of any moisture, covered in a layer of litter, and any litter stuck to their feet is removed by the litter mat outside the litter box. Cats instantly clean any foreign smells they get on them which rarely happens because cats don't walk through messes without a care unlike other animals. My grandma has a house with Carpet and her cats lay on the furniture all day but she cleans the litter box. Half her family doesn't even know she owns a cat until it comes up in a conversation because the cat hides and her house doesn't smell like a litterbox.
like them. no interest in them as a pet, but I always get on with it whenever I'm around one
theres one that keeps sleeping under my car though and thats annoying as shit cause I literally have to crouch down and scare him off every morning, otherwise I'd probably accidentally kill the poor little fucker
>>2061035 You scoop it every day. A litter box with 1 pile of poop or piss in it does not smell. If it does then that means you should stop using 1$ bags of cat litter from the dollar store or change it because you haven't in the last 5 years.
i'm looking after my aunt's two right now.. i go every day to feed, water and scoop litter..
every day i'm appalled at how fucking gross and disgusting the shit boxes are
being covered in clay doesn't help - the whole house smells like cat piss and shit
my clean freak grandparents just got a cat
i used to visit them at least once a week.. now i try and get them to go out because their gross new cat walks on the kitchen table and eating food on it makes my physically ill
their condo also smells like shit because that is what happens when you keep a box of shit in your house
i put an envelope with $20 under my neighbors door with a note asking them to use the money to buy the $.20 extra "heavy duty" garbage bags because every week on garbage day they track cat litter all over the hall when the welfare bags they buy fail .. every fucking week
i have to use the back door or else i'll track cat litter into my house AND I DON'T EVEN HAVE A FUCKING GROSS GOD DAMN CAT.. their apartment smells too.. especially in the summer
