Ann Marie, our dog was a black lab, shephard mix that we rescued from the pound. Do I ever know about how hard it is, we had to put down our dog and our cat within two months of each other and I vowed I would never go through that again. So no more pets for me.

I'm a newbie here and was looking around the forum and just had to read about talkative cats. These are all so funny. My part Maine Coon cat
chirped at the Blue Jays in Oregon. He'd sit in the windowsill watching as they teased him from the railing, and then he's work his jaw in a really weird way and out would come a chirp lol Now he's taken to talking to himself! Or so it seems. And he's only 4 y.o. He goes in the bathroom, perches on the counter and meow and meows We sneak up on him to see if he's talking to his reflection in the mirror, but he's almost always facing the wall or closed window. Our Simba meows really loud in the mornnig if he's out of food in his dish. He then goes in and out of cubboards, and the doors slamming gets me up lol Shadow, our black, part Siamese is our psycho kitty. He's very affectionate, but the slightest thing can spook him and then it's all claws and run! His back claws don't retract so if you're barefoot get outta the way. He caught my big toe once running to escape goodness knows what. Ripped it up pretty bad. So we're very careful around him. They do each have their own personality. Oliver would never scratch us..very mellow..except for all the talking to himself lately lol

This is very unusual for a cat to get that near a tub of water? I had another part Siamese years ago that jumped in through a neighbors open window straight into the shower with him. Startled the heck out of him. Coco used to play with running tap water too. No baths though!


Do any of your cats ask for cake? Oliver sits in front of me and stares till I let him taste a scrap or bit of icing. He knows not to beg out loud, but boy can he stare! Buttercream, made with high butter content's his favorite of course.

If I take a bath, Rory will jump in the tub with me and lay on my stomach, just out of the water with his tail draping in. He falls right to sleep.

Hi BakingwithAloha - thanks for posting! Smile And welcome to BakeSpace...

I have the same situation about taking a bath. Now the cats won't come in, but "Gracie" has to get on the edge of the tub. She somehow manages to forget that she has fallen in almost every time she does this... she loves to look at the water so I sometimes mess with her and pretend my hand is a fish... hahahaha makes her go crazy. "Fluffy" has to wait next to the tub... It doesn't matter if I go in for an hour.. they are both in there the entire time. It's pretty funny. One day I'm going to get video of gracie falling in... the best part is watching her walk away... shaking one leg at a time... hahahh

If M&M hears Jim's voice on the phone, she gets up in my lap and starts rubbing her face on the phone.

One night she did that and I held the phone out for her to hear him, and he was calling to her - - her eyes got big and black. Was so cute, wish I had taken video!!

had a striped nuetered tomcat for 18 yrs..he rarely shut up...i used to toss pennies at him in the middle of the nite to shush him..at the time, we had a dog, the cat, and 2 parakeets. i had a friend over who didn't like cats, so i shut sobriety (that was his name, we adopte him for an alcoholism tx center i was a nurse at, then got a new director who threatened to take him to the pound, so i ended up with him, i like cats, but i'm not really a "cat person") up in my room..he hears the company, and starts BANGING on the bedroom door, yowling, "YELLO!!!" over and over..my friend asked,"nan, have you guys added a PARROT to this managerie?" he would also yowl "mom" at me on command from my husband who thought that was just hysterical...and would "fetch" q tips for my bh also...me? he'd climb in my dresser drawer and pee on my clean undies...i had to always make sure my dresser was closed...never did it to my bh's clothes...when his kidneys failed @age 18, and i had to put him to sleep, i cried for days about that damned cat.

stillakidrn - amazing how we humans get so attached to our pets. My cat will be 18 in July...and she has been having problems with her kidneys. But she has been having the same problem for years, plus she has a small kidney stone. She is on a special dry food diet from the vets. Seems to help. She is a Tortoiseshell Calico. And the BOSS of the house. Smile
