The Cat



Log in to see fewer ads
About 2 yrs ago, my dog passed at 17, about a week later the wifeís cat had to be put down at 18. The wife then declared no more dogs or cats, about six months later she said, she might take an older female cat, if it needed a home, but she did not want a male cat or a young cat.

About 5-6 months later, I went to Vermont for 2 weeks to install a new burner on a boiler, when I came back home, there was a 10 week old male kitten living in the house. She mumbled some vague excuse, but there he was, here to stay.

While the wife was in Hospice, she asked me not to get rid of the cat, he needed a home, I said I would not get rid of him. Now it just the cat and me, Iím now got a yr old male cat, living in the house. Iím not truly a cat person, we have had them for almost most 30 yrs, they are just her pets. The cat does not like me, he tolerates me, he knows Iím his food source and his litter box technician, but he is not real friendly. We live in the same dwelling, but do not live together.

Maybe things will change, over time

So you must like him a little bit. Because he is definitely being fed.

You will grow on him. He may not ever get to point where he wants your lap but you will see a tendency to be in the room you are in.

Good on you for honoring your wife's commitment to him.

Cats are pretty similar to people, you can provide everything for them and they seem ungrateful. Which is partly why I like them, Dogs are lovely but they are programmed to hero worship the Alpha.

Eventually given time you may well get on with this cat, he looks like a handsome beast, Try catnip or a lazer pen and he'll soon be warming to you!

Nice looking cat Boilerjack and it's good to have a warm body in the house after all you've been through.

I'm not particularly a cat person but I've fallen in love with a few over the years. Even married a Kitty

Thanks Pipestone! I filched that off the interwebz for our Evil Cat Lady and then forgot about it until I saw Boilerjack's post.

A day late and a dollar short but here I am

You and the cat may both be happier living apart.

Dang Ross, those poor underfed babies remind me of our family motto.

"Better a belly busted than good vittles wasted!"

Boilerjack, that is a nice looking cat. Whether you think so or not, you likely mean more to your cat than just a food source or litter box tech. If you show the cat affection, I'm sure it will be reciprocated in time. Not all cats are lap cats but they show their friendship in other ways and can still be great companions.

Now, if you want to see a real companion cat, try this link:

I love that ad. Especially when he tells him to go get some firewood. It is such a good ad you almost forget what the ad is for.
