LOL, that petting chart SOOOOO does not apply to one of my cats.
Some cats, including one of the ones I have now, love a gentle belly-scratching.

But Life with/out a Cat is right on target.

Re: Feline Follies

A friend has a cat that'll fall flat on her back at anyone to have them rub her belly.

I think it's because she's too fat and lazy to jump up on a chair to attract attention and then has learned that people will bend over all the way to reach her lying on the floor

No seriously; my friends cat is fat... but it's an outdoor cat during summer and an indoor cat in winter so I'm hoping it's just a winter thing. Anyone here have experience (or advice) with this sort of thing?

Yeah...actually, most cats I've owned have liked their bellies rubbed. The other cat, though she only really allows me to pet her when she's in my lap, will let me rub her belly during that time too.

Thanks! We knew right away what to name them when we saw two twin brothers with yellow eyes at the rescue shelter. Had we not gotten them, one of the employees was going to adopt Data and we couldn't bear to let them be separated. They're very clearly brothers and are quite inseparable, as you can see.
That's awesome. It would have been horrible to separate them.

Oh, and we think there may be hope for Banshee to be out of the diaper someday. After I took off her diaper yesterday, she went to the litter pan and squatted for a minute. Nothing happened, but shortly thereafter I had to clean off some "Klingons". So we think she knows when she has to go, but doesn't have the muscle control yet.
That's great. Hopefully she won't be Diaper Kitty for long!

^Same with our cat. She even loves it when I grab her muzzle, pull her around with her legs, and all that.
Reminds me of the Welsh "damn good cat" test.

Re: Feline Follies

I can never seem to get a good photo of Holly, now 12, the cat we've had the longest. We adopted her and her sister in Canada in 2004, and they moved back to England with us in 2006. I must stalk her (which will go down really well) and see if I can get some good photos of our oversized furball.

Last summer we adopted two other elderly cats. Lucy is 13 and her mother, Lizzie, is 14. Looking at them you'd never think they were that old. They may be small, but they're packed with attitude and are very much lap cats. My younger son is often stuck in the position in the photo. I couldn't tell you if that's Lizzie or Lucy on his lap, because they look so much alike.

She's doing fine. She seems to have settled into the routine of going into her crate while we're gone during the day, and into her diaper when we're home. She really doesn't like us having to put it on her, so it usually takes two of us to change her. But she does get around just fine with it on, running around and chasing her buddy Phantom and climbing the furniture.

Her scars are slowly healing and the fur is starting to grow back. She does try to use the litter pan, but nothing happens on command yet, although we're still hopeful! The vet did say that it would probably take several months before she'd get function back, if she does.

Re: Feline Follies

My female, Chance, craves attention at 5:00 in the morning on a very regular basis. I barely notice it anymore and just give her a few scratches while I am more than half asleep.

This morning Chance had another surprise in store for me though. At about 6:30 I heard the unmistakable sound of a cat regurgitating. I have hardwood in my bedroom so it wasn't so bad. I got up, cleaned it up and went back to bed in the hopes of getting a bit more sleep before my alarm went off. Unfortunately about ten minutes later I heard the same thing again except this time Chance was sitting on my dresser. She managed to vomit over a pair of clean jeans I had folded and put there the night before and all over my Toy Story 3 Blu-Ray disc which I had taken out of my PS3 and neglected to put back in its case.

You gotta love cats.

^I had a box of that size (canvas over cardboard though) ½ filled with soft cat-toys... I hoped my Füb would find it a comfy place to lie -I even put it in a perfect cat-hideout place (high up, warm and with a 'ceiling' of sorts) -but she never took to it My laundry baskets of the same size however

I think it's in their DNA. If it's a piece of your clothing they have to lie on it.
