He's alright, I guess. We got him not too long ago. He's cute, but he could care less about people. All my other cats have always been really cuddly and affectionate. He just wants you to feed him and leave him alone. Try to pet him and he gets all bitey. Oh well, at least we were able to give him a home. I have three other animals that like to snuggle up with me, so it's no big deal. At least he's not destructive. He's just kind of "there." Maybe someday he'll bond with us more. If not, that's okay. He'll never be as good as his predecessor(Pictured below), Thomas. He was the sweetest cat of all time.



He loved the dogs:

Re: post your pet picture thread

My in-laws have a cat that sounds kind of like that. They said right from when they got him as a kitten, he was never cuddly or anything like that. He's really smart, but not really a people cat. My husband loves that cat but I could never warm up to him. We ended up with a cuddly kitty, but that other cat (Jake) is really affectionate now that he's older. He rubs up against me, hops up on the couch to snuggle, etc. I don't think he'll ever be the most affectionate cat, but we joke about how if young Jake could see what old Jake is like, he'd beat himself up.

Re: post your pet picture thread

My sister took in a cat like that as well. This cat apparently doesn't like people or other cats and prefers to be left alone. Her original owner was forced to give her up when the cat didn't get along with his new wife. Her next owner gave her up as well because she didn't get along with the other cats. And at age 15, if she went to a shelter, she probably would get put to sleep. That was too much for my sister, so she adopted her.

Re: post your pet picture thread

My cousin had a cat like that. She was a Persian cat, named Chia, that didn't like people until she got very old. She would always look out the living room window and when I'd pull up in the driveway she'd stare at me like I was trespassing on her lawn.

Toward the end though, she started to approach me more and cuddle up with me. She'd lick my face with her little scratchy tongue and I thought she was just the sweetest cat, and I'd throw her little plastic grocery bags and she'd bat at them for hours, she loved it so much, wouldn't do anything else. It was terribly sad when she passed (she was 17), and I'll never forget that flat little face with those crazy, out of control whiskers. She was a good cat.

Now this one, Gracie, on the other hand, I raised her from just a few weeks of age(The mom was a feral kit, and she'd built her "nest" in my mother-in-law's shed, and she's got about 6 German Shepherds, and the kittens were starting to wander out, and we had to take them before they got eaten.) bottle fed her and everything, so she's unusually attached to me. She wants to be with me all the time. Doesn't care much for anybody else.

Re: post your pet picture thread

Okay, I don't know what my problem is. I thought I posted this a couple hours ago, but it's not here now.

Anyway, my boys saying hi to their pal, the mail lady



and wondering what daddy's doing with that thing attached to his face

Our cat is part Maine Coon, I think, but I don't know much about cats. We just got him because he was cute, outgoing, and needed a family!

Gizmo's pretty awesome. He's dealing with the heat better than I thought -- all that fur!

Post a pic here; the Mrs., who is the cat expert in the family, can probably tell if yours is part Maine Coon or not. OTOH, what diff, if you love him...
