cute cat. read up on cat care on the internet. cats are very different than dogs and also they do not respond to scolding like dogs . One thing you should not do, is play with the cat with your hands because that teaches the cat to scratch and bite hands. Always have some toy or object in your hand if you want to play with cat.

Kitty is gorgeous! She has the same face markings as my last cat (part Maine Coon). What have you named her?

you can never "own" a cat , unlike the dog. i love dogs but like cats better. give em food and a clean litter box and they will be happy with you.

oh yes, maybe a goodie once in awhile.

A tip: Dogs have owners; cats have staff.

I love cats - can't remember a time when I haven't lived with at least one. Yeah, cats are not trainable, but if you have a talkative one, they're lots of fun. I love watching mine talk to the birds through the window. Which reminds me - is she going to be an indoor cat from now on? I'd recommend it. She'll be safe from cars (I've lost one that way), feline AIDS and other diseases, and you won't have to worry about her if you don't see her when you expect to.
