Thank you! Yes, that does sound like a very fitting caption. They look so funny when they squeeze their eyes like that!
To be honest, kitties don't usually like me because I like to nuzzle. Dogs? They'll run right up to me. Cats? They know the deal and they're running away.

You just need to find the right cat. If you watch a cat's behavior when you go to the shelter or rescue long enough, you'll find the outgoing, very tactile ones that really want to be near you and be held and petted all the time.

Well, I don't plan on adopting a pet until I have my own place, but when I do, I may have to find a nuzzle kitteh!

Yes. My cat likes to nuzzle, too much.

I've similar problem with my cats. An hour or so ago I had two of them on me, making typing a bit difficult. Not enough room for two cats and a laptop.

Re: Feline Follies

When I took my second cat from a shelter, she was the 'don't touch me' type. She's changed and likes being near me.

Colder and distant kitties also need a home!

Awwww...KYOOOOOOOT!

And yeah, it's true that more distant kitties need a home. I don't argue that. But if someone wants a dog substitute...then there are really clingy cats you can get for that.

Not necessarily. Dogs are sloppier, more dangerous, harder to care for, and far fewer landlords are willing to allow them. So if you're not into all of that, then a very personable cat is the best choice.

Oh, I love doggies and kitties both, and would be happy with either. I usually consider myself a dog person, but more and more I've been thinking about being owned by a kitteh.
