so true.. one pat and they are yours for life depending on the cat though some hold onto their wild ways and bring you 'gifts' and one of mine an outside cat or she is supposed to be never wanders far and doesn't like affection that much and like human a bit contrary one will lay and let you fuss all day the other..bite you just by going near haha they are adorable though so you forgive them

adeline, a kind word and a pat has sometimes worked with my wife as well. i'm not really a cat lover as you seemed to think after reading my big fat cat without a hat. of course i wouldn't kick a cat down the stairs; it might retaliate! thanks for sharing. bri

I relate to this gem - a dog is man's best friend, cats tolerate us in the nicest way.

What wonderful language. Our two cats love to be petted but entirely on their schedule. As they say, 'Dogs have masters, cats have staff.'
