Cats...Who Needs Them Anyway?!!!

Cats….who needs them anyway!

That’s what I thought until I rescued Scratch from my local animal shelter. He turned out to be one of the best pets I’ve ever had. And this is coming from a dog guy!

Snowy (left) and Scratch

Scratch has been a faithful companion to my little girl, Laura, and me throughout the years. We’ve enjoyed him so much that we decided to rescue another cat, Snowy, from the same animal shelter.

Together they have provided us with lots of laughs and friendship throughout the years.

Last night we were looking at some pictures of Scratch and Snowy and then while surfing the Internet we came across this hysterical YouTube video:

An Engineer’s Guide To Cats.

With a huge population of engineers in the Unites States, and especially here in the Raleigh/ Cary/Apex area, I’m certain you’ll be able to associate the characters in this video to one of them!

Enjoy!

Kenny - thank you Kenny! And thank you for stopping on by and taking the time to comment!

Bill - You taught your daughter well! I've never owned a pet that wasn't rescued from a shelter. My sister though takes it one step further....She only adopts pets from shelters that have some sort of issue. One is missing a leg (Tippy), one is mising an ear (Van Gogh) and one has breathing problems (Wheezer)!!!

Lorrie - Since the disclaimer was that none of the cats (or engineers!) were harmed during the making of that video, we decided to give the yodeling effect a try on our cats......It works!!!!

Angelia - So glad to have brought a smile to your day. My work is done here! Come back tomorrow if you need another reason to smile!

Bill - Similar to your Cougar story, when I adopted Scratch, he kind of adopted me. He was the only one of the bunch who came right up to me and decided he wanted my attention. He was incredibly friendly and it seemed he knew he wanted to get out of that place!

Cecily - Scratch and Snowy say Meow right back at ya Lola and Ruby!

Charlie - That's quite the history lesson! Thank you for enlightening us on a topic most probably didn't even know about.

Gene - You know the answer to that question.....They own us!!! Thanks for dropping on by!

Li - If this Real Estate thing doesn't work out for you, you could always charge admission to the Li Zoo you've got going on over there!!!!

Craig, I like you even more now that I know you are a cat person.  I think you know that I have 5 cats (8 years of working as a vet. nurse).  We have "Pugsly" who is very mean (except to us) and should be on kitty prozac.  we also have a dog who likes to torment the cats, which provides hours of endless entertainment for us.  Thanks for sharing the video, I am still laughing.

Linda - Yeah, I need a life! This one's not working out so well! Maybe I'll go run off and join the circus...again!!!

Amy - Pets are great fun. And provide more than just entertainment...pet owners live longer than non pet owners!

Craig, One thing I can say for sure about cats, you either love 'em or hate 'em. I have had a few cool cats in my life, some I liked even better than some dogs I have had...

~~~Merry Christmas ~~~~

Cecily - That's a good one. Some cats, if nothing else, THINK they own the house. But stop feeding them and see how humble they get!!!

Bob & Carolin - Thank you! And all the best to you and your furry friends this holiday season...and always!!!

I Just had to send you another picture of Ruby....she is such a sun girl and loves to lay in front of the sliding glass doors and get a tan every afternoon. I think you should ask everyone to post their favorite pic of heir feline friends. Good idea, right???

Cecily - Ruby is one lazy cat! You probably laugh at some of the sunning positions you find her in when you come home each day!

Maureen - I thought that quote, "corporal cuddling" was pretty funny way to put a disciplinary action! Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment!!!

Patricia - Glad to have made you smile! My work for the day is done! Come back soon!

Leesa - I thought it was a good video to share with my AR buddies and the rest of the world. Everyone has (or should have) a pet they love and can see the humor in how we react with them.
