You're a person whose "shift" keys apparently usually don't function. That key between the "," and the "/" keys seems to often also have problems.

You also seem prone to doing a lot of trite and/or low substance messages, such as the very recently posted this and this.

Lite conversion is fairly OK in topics such as this cats and dogs topic, but not everywhere. Tighten up your act.

And trade in those dogs for cats.

There are hardly any more mice around in their whole hunting area. And you want me to get more cats?

No they do function i just don't press them that often, what key do you mean . it is between , and -. Again purely my fault, for some reason i have a hard time using it on forums i have no problem whit it anywhere else.

Il try no to do that.

CAT a strophic
Although I currently own neither a cat nor a dog, it has been my experience observing friends and the cats they love that cats are usually more harsh with computer keyboards than are dogs.

As for Frako, he probably is of the current generation that was never required to actually learn how to type properly (nor was I...I hunt and peck to this day at 40 words per minute...) but with all of those pets running around the house, I am impressed that all of his keys are even in his keyboard!

Is there even such a thing as a cat obedience school? I would say that cats are the epitome of the concept of free will!

The sad part is i actualy know how to write "blind" or as you say properly though for some reason i do not write capitals or dots "." on forums.

When i studied economics one of the classes was "blind" writing, it is actualy not that hard and i had a grade of 4 from 1 meaning failed and 5 being the best. Testing was on a program that gave you what you have to spell and mesured the time it took you and the number of false keystrokes you made. the keyboard was covered whit a box like thinkgy so you could not see the keys.

back on topic

Is there even such a thing as a cat obedience school? I would say that cats are the epitome of the concept of free will!

You can actualy train a cat as you would a dog though it takes much more time. And since they lack the desire that dogs have to please their master you have to use food to make him do what you want.

I had one cat trained to jump on my shoulder on command, and all the cats to "rub my chin whit their heads" if they want to get any food only one hasto do it and i give it to them. Though the strange part is that i only trained the mother of these cats a verry long time ago, she passed away, though she somehow taught the skill to her kids.

You've gotta serve somebody
6 years and pushing 9 months later we've finally gotten confirmation of my speculation.

To repeat from message 12:

Dogs think "they care for me, they feed me, they shelter me - they must be gods."
Cats think "they care for me, they feed me, they shelter me - I must be a god."

I could offer up 1 "get out of jail free" card to someone who would tally up the "owners", affiliations, and canine/feline totals.

BTW, currently 5 cats, in order of acquisition - Squeak(F) (aka "Grumpy"), Teddy(M) (aka "The Weasel"), Marvin(M) (aka "Big old Marv, the generic cat", and litter mates Punky(F) (aka "The Fluffy Pork Ball") and Munchkin(F) (aka "The Little Princess").

You know that sounds horrible, don't you?

To be as a dog is to a man, unto your god?

Does he put you down if you are badly treated and bite him?

Teddy(M) (aka "The Weasel")

That made me laugh, the kitty in my avatar (Smudge) looked like a ferret when he was about six months old. He had a growth spurt (length-wise) and looked just like a ferret when he stood up on his heels.

Even now he has a habit of biting my arm with his incisors (never his canines) and hanging on (just like a weasel/ferret).

He's such a good boy.

Teddy the Weasel
Teddy is a black and white "tuxedo" cat. While the rest of my cats are a bit on the plump side, Teddy is "the little skinny guy". And whenever there is something new for a cat to check out, get into, get on top of, or in general mess with, Teddy the Weasel the one to do it.

He's also probably my favorite of the bunch.

Now, I leave you with:

Not Teddy, Teddy's not polydactyl, but the above cat might have some weasel in him.
