Black cats are elegant forever. This is proof.

    1. True. I remember this photo session in vivid detail: I spent an hour crawling around on the ground, trailing my two cats’ and waiting patiently for them to assume a photogenic pose. I shot hundreds of pictures, about a dozen of them good. So yes, pets are a tough nut to crack.


    1. Very regal. That’s a perfect match — and it matches the personality of this particular cat too. She is as regal as is she was doing it on purpose. If I were to name her now, I’d call her Queen Elizabeth II. But I already call my computer Elizabeth. It’s complicated…

        1. Perfect! It isn’t scary to me either, the cat indeed is a strong and vital one, which is a quality I admire. Of course, she isn’t cuddly, and I’m sorry about that, but she is incredibly independent. By which I mean, for example, that she disappeared for several weeks in summer, for the second year in a row, and lived apparently only on what she caught. She returned as autumn drew near, well-fed and fine. I mean, I would have been dead…

          1. Mine isn’t cuddly either, but that is the way we trained her, not to get on the bed and couches etc. But I do wish I had a cuddly cat ! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

            Lol about her disappearing, your cat got some rad survival skills! ๐Ÿ˜€ Mine is too pampered to live by herself like that. !


          2. My other cat is as pampered as yours and she never disappeared, much to my delight. She would probably die out there… You successfully trained your cat not to get on furniture? That sounds quite like an achievement! My cats are both outdoors, but in future, I’m looking to get a home cat and I was of course wondering how much damage a cat at home can cause and to what extent you can train a cat like you describe.


          3. Well we never had any kind of damage to our house. I have the same cat since 8 years now and had few others in the meantime too. I don’t remember any kind of damage except the pooping! lol

            But if you train them well enough they won’t even poop inside. I love cuddly cats !! ๐Ÿ˜€


          4. Oh, this sounds perfect! It does look after all that cats are capable of learning things. My husband started to train my younger cat to go to her place in the garage — he lets her in when he is there because it’s warmer than outdoors and she likes it there. She has a spot there under the heater. The cat does obey him, sometimes, but when I’m there, she’s too excited to follow any orders. Anyway, I’m glad to hear that you have the best cat ever who does no damage to the house. If she’s not cuddly, try to hold her while giving her treats… Maybe it could work?


          5. My cat is too old to learn anything now, it works best with kittens. Train them since the beginning, that’s the only way it’s gonna work. It’s very hard to teach old cats. Maybe I’ll get a kitten someday and I’ll make it a cuddly one ๐Ÿ˜€


          6. True. You won’t teach an old dog new tricks. Or an old cat, for the matter. It’s most likely that you would be able to bring up a kitty to a cuddly cat, that’s what I managed to do. No special effort needed, except just cuddling the cat a lot, and she got so used to being held so that she now climbs on my lap and demands to be cuddled on her own accord.


          7. Haha, Typical cats, They want what they want. They don’t care if you are in the cuddly mood or not, when they wanna be rubbed and cuddled you just gotta do it. They are selfish just like that ! ๐Ÿ˜€ lol


  1. Leave the kitty alone and go to sleep already๐Ÿ˜ฒ
    It’s Sunday morning over there, isn’t it??๐Ÿ˜‹
