I knew and lived with a German Shorthaired Pointer for a while. Best darn Pointer for hunting. Although I'm not fond of hunting, I can appreciate a dog doing what it's best at.

At the gun range he would sleep calmly while guns of all types were going off around him.

Let the tiniest roll of thunder sound way in the distance---- he became a quivering mass of dog, sitting on laps, huddled under the covers. Poor thing; I felt so sorry for him.

When he died his ashes were scattered over the gun range at the 200 line, a fitting place for him.

They can be as naughty as they want and their owners just coo: Oh, isn't that SO like a Siamese? and then cuddle them (if they can, because Siamese don't allow cuddling unless it's their idea!)
Yeah, I've been stiff pawed many times. Every once in a while I can pick Latté up and she welcomes it as long as I stand still and let her down within 30 seconds.

Meanwhile, our mutt of a cat rubs your ankle if you aren't headed to your chair fast enough. I can almost see her tapping her foot as I try to get myself settled in so that I'm comfortable when she hops up on me. After all, it's all about HER comfort! Some nights I have to push her off after a couple hours because my legs have fallen asleep.

Siamese cats invented the phrase It's All About Me.

Remember this?

Oh yes! My Aunt had Siamese that were horrible cats. It wasn't until I got Latté that I appreciated Siamese cats...mostly because they are not people cats, they are a person cat. And I am Latté's person...it's taken her almost 5 years (since he retired) to allow Shrek to pet and scritch her.

That seems to apply to almost all cats.

I have two cats that are all that. They own the house or so they think. Mitts and Spankie really feel like they have the rights to anything in the house.

Say, cat folk -- need some advice here, please. One of my kitties has had a very stuffy nose for several days now. Short of a vet, what can I do at home to help relieve it? I suspected an allergic reaction to some new dry food, but that's been gone for 5 or 6 feedings with no improvement. He seems to feel OK -- eating & litterbox use fine. Thanks for any suggestions.

Springtime allergies? How is the humidity this time of year in Florida?

I have 2 coughing kitties right now, but I suspect it's a change in the litter I was buying.
