I would be okay if you left all of the cats in your will to me.

Easy to say when you're looking at pictures it's a little different when you live it everyday. It is fun most of the time though, cats are very entertaining. They do so many stupid things that they make me laugh out loud many times a day. The way they like to sneak up on each other, and the cat being snuck up on will jump straight up in the air and it's just hilarious. Or they like to hide in a paper bag on the floor and spring out at any cat that passes by.

There used to be a trained cat show at Planet Hollywood casino in Las Vegas. I have no idea if it is still there.

Deep snow to sink in. Of course, that might a light snow for that area.

LOL, you are correct. I never think about the big ones as cats but they are. They even act like house cats once they're domesticated.

My only advice would be if you're going to have only one cat get a male. They tend to be much friendlier than the females, and much cheaper to get fixed. They also seem to be more playful when they're adults than the females.

We will definitely be getting two (one for each dog to eat)..

Do your cats ever run around like they’ve lost their mind or does having lots of cats mute that kind of behavior ?

Got 20 yards of packing paper in a FedEx shipment and the cats like to hide in it and attack other cats as they walk by.

After a few days at the house...
I noticed an automated litterbox has appeared.
I noticed that my stuff wasn't getting peed on.

Hopes are high, until they get bored with a new contraption. Those automatic litter boxes are expensive, did you buy it without knowing it?

I knew cats (even house cats) can swim, but was unaware a dog can dive down around 12 feet of water and retrieve something. And this is from dog paddling at the surface first, not diving off the side.

He does get a lot of hardware store comps.
It is a model they carry.
It is exactly the type of frippery he'd spend his comps on.

I'm disinclined to look at the teeth too hard; I didn't have to do extra laundry.
