I don't like cats.....Well, I don't dislike ALL cats just the two who always are meeting at two o'clock in the morning, outside our bedroom window and discussing foreign affairs.

I'm assuming it's foreign affairs because they screech at each other. I don't think they like each other. I know I don't like either one of them.

Last night I decided it was time to take action. At five minutes to two I got dressed, got a pail of water and went outside to wait for them. It was time to take back my yard.

It was cold last night and by two-thirty, of course, no cats....Only night in the last week they haven't appeared.

So, I gave up, returned to the house, pail of water with me, and clambered into bed..........No sooner had I started to drift off...There they were...Screeching at each other.

That was it! I jumped out of bed, tripped over the pail of water, which, of course spilled its contents on the floor, I did a spin worthy of a figure skater and landed on the floor with a thump. This woke up my Wife, Sue...

"What are you doing?" she asked..."And what in heavens name are you doing on the floor?"

"You didn't here those #$%$$# screeching cats?"

''What cats.."

I then noticed that it was silent...Well, except for the squishing of the water on the carpet...THAT Sue noticed....

"Doug..."

"Yea.."

"Is that water in and on the rug..."

"Yea.."

"How did it get there..."

After explaining the reason for the mess and blaming the screeching cats
I was told that we had to clean up the mess.....Didn't get back to bed till four AM......I hate cats......I am peeved....

This post reminded me of a trip to Thailand in 2000, where on the boat to Koh Tao we met a German guy who just hated all cats! We were blown away; how could anyone hate all cats? He would run away from them just like you see women running away from mice in movies. It changed my opinion of German men forever

Oh, a thread after my own heart!!!

Cats make me feel miserable. I avoid them at all costs. I've tried to give Isa my secret recipe for Cat à la King, but she's having none of it...

Mention Cat à la King in this house and these are the looks you get from Lilly, Moe, Harry and their friends. Harry may look as though he's preoccupied and didn't hear what you said but just wait. He's Harry the Howler who loves to serenade you at 2am because he's awake and you're not. Okay, Lilly isn't that small anymore either but she still gets teary-eyed when you talk about cooking her in a cream sauce.

Mmm... with a nice vol-au-vent and some crispy greens....

See, this is what you get when you blame cats (who are so sweet). Be nice to cats and they'll be nice to you.

I have to agree with this post. We had dogs from the time I was 3 until just recently. Had no use for cats. Then our neighbor moved away and left the cat to fend for itself. Long story short, Andy adopted us and now we have a cat. If you show them any affection, they know the have a new friend. Now Andy jumps on an available lap for a snuggle. How can you not like cats?

I love cats.

I had a cat for almost 16 years. I was devasted when she died.

I love cats. I also had one for 16 years and was so sad when she died - the house felt really empty without her.

Cats are serene, clean and independent, but also very affectionate. and they bury their poo - how many times have you ever trodden in cat poo? and cats never smell, unlike most dogs.

I'm with you Bex76.

Plus, what is it with self righteous people who are right "into" animal liberation yet see fit to keep a large dog that barks all day out of boredom in a yard the size of a postage stamp, yet berate those that keep a domestically bred bird in a cage?
