What do Poles really think about cats?

I like pvssies too, doggies ar for people who need to be loved because they have low self esteem and kitties are for people who don't need that

Jon, and all cat lovers. As I told you, I was planning to see the black cat which one of my students wanted to give away. I paid them a visit and took the cat - it is 2 months old, all black. My student called him Diego - tomorrow I must ask her if she was thinking about Diego Zorro. I quite like that name, though first I intended to call him Koks..

Our two old cats are stupified, they are shunning a closer contact with the novice, I feared some violence but for the time being it didn`t occur.

As usual, I made a surprise to my family - all our cats have been one.

all black

Lovely. A lot of people don't like the black ones due to superstition; they're the type most commonly euthanised unfortunately.

a surprise to my family - all our cats have been one.

The nicest sort of surprise.

Black seemed to me the most exciting colour when I got my first cat in early 1990s - a female cat who later gave birth to another black one which I kept. They lived for 18 years.

Today I have changed my preferences - I consider ginger ones the most attractive.

I like the tortoiseshell they're the most underrated. Most people think they look too dirty/ferral.

That is an extremely interesting coincidence coz when I was taking the little one, I saw and even played with his tortoise shell mother for a while. She wasn`t afraid of me and that convinced me even more to take the decision.

yes, I have always agred with that opinion. People who have a lot of love to offer prefer cats.

A new bed for Diego. Instantly occupied by envious Ginger.

I am still wondering why I decided to adopt that black baby so out of the blue.
E.g.,
-crazy times we are living in now require crazy actions. I thought it would be a good idea to divert my family`s attention from the virus threat.

- our two cats are getting old - they need some new blood. I read that the best way to prolong the cat`s life is to provide it with a mate.

-besides, they are constantly cuddled, snuggled, kept on knees, held in arms and kissed by all of us. I think they might be a little tired of it at their age - Greyfus is 12 Ginger is 11.

- everything we do is God-ordained. It was pure God`s will that I overheard the conversation about cats between my female students who were showing each other photos while in class. I meddled and demanded to see the photos and that`s how the idea was planted in my mind.

It means they have certain deficiencies with olfaction. Dogs smell like hell. :):):):)

Your cats are all so cute! Mine are sadly deceased now :(
I prefer cats, but I also had a chocolate labrador.
Your house must be like a small zoo.

Yes, that is why we kiss them a dozen times a day each.

Mine are sadly deceased now :(

Yes, our pets live shorter than we. But getting a cat is very easy. I got my first one in 1992 and since then our homes have always had at least one cat - mostly two, twice three.

Your house must be like a small zoo.

Yes, it has been my little predilection to be living in LIVE-ly surroundings. I acquired it decades ago when I worked as a grave digger for a few years. hahahaha

Oh great for you! I'm unfortunately allergic but would love one. I met 2 tortoiseshell cats and both times I had great things happen to me in life so I consider tortes especially lucky. But all cats are good for a home for metaphysical reasons. For cuddles, too.

The baby cat is gradually adapting. Everybody loves him - he is cuddly, sociable, clever, playful, curious. Elderly Greyfus is still stiff and indifferent but 11 year old Ginger has become juvenile again and gladly plays with the kitten. And he is very clean - on the first day he used the litter box - I made one from an old drawer.

We were lucky - today I thanked my student for getting me such a wonderful pet. It was God`s guidance.

He'll get used to him.

Yep. And you saved a black cat!

A banner from today's demonstration in Warsaw organized by farmers dissatisfied with the latest bill on the protection of animals, the so-called "Piątka dla zwierząt":

"Dosyć mamy dyktatury Kaczyńskego i kota jego". [It doesn't rhyme in English, so I'm leaving it untranslated]

This cat of his is the only positive thing about him. What if he isn`t so evil after all? :):)

pawian, do they respond to English or Polish? Do your kitties react to both languages?
pawian 173 | 13,530

Neither. I use Catlish when talking with them. I had to teach myself how to speak it but now we can communicate freely.

A domesticated Ryś [European Lynx] could even protect the house like a dog

I have always dreamt of cuddling and kissing a lynx. I find the smell of wild cats very attractive.

You know that lynx eat pawians. :)

Of course not. Pawians stand up to much bigger cats like leopards and often win.

I'm afraid that lynx would not survive your cuddles and would rather embrace Elmyra than you



pawian 173 | 13,530

I don`t know Elmyra. The last time when I watched cartoons Bolek and Lolek were trendy. And is it a lynx or an ordinary cat?

Every day the kitten displays amusing behaviour. So, one day he got fascinated with the tortoise which had left its home for a while. The tortoise was marching across the floor, and Diego was marching close behind, at the same pace. Funny as hell.

Today, Diego recalled he is a baby and did his best to suck Ginger. He pushed and pushed until he got under Ginger and actually sucked his belly.. Amazing. Ginger didn`t mind. Greyfus is too old to bond with the kitten - he either leaves or scares Diego off with a raised paw.
