But I’m not a cat-person!
This is following a conversation about cats and dogs and cat people and dog people…..
I say and have always said that I am a DOG person….. How come I’ve ended up with 3 cats and only one dog then…..
Discussing this with Jen, the conclusion was drawn that actually whilst I’m not the cat person, my Polly-dog is!!!!
I have a dog who is a Cat-person/cat lover whatever the term maybe!! If indeed one exists!!
My first cat Frodo was immediately adopted by Polly as her baby. She chastised him when he was naughty (hence I think how he is lit trained and why he is the least of the stair clawers!!) He was allowed to sleep in her bed with her or on her…. He cleans her she generally pounces on him knocks him flying etc etc etc…
The second cat appearing on the scene was an older cat Marmalade… I first met him on my walks round the neighbourhood where I had my flat. He used to follow Polly and I on all our walks about 2-3 metres behind us if we stopped for anything he’d catch up and rub his head on Polly purring, but run if I got near (needless to say he now far more chilled out and is one of the first to jump on the sofa next to me for a cwtch. Marmalade also cleans Polly the moment she lays done on the lounge floor he’s there licking her head!
Parker…. Now when he appeared the house became a war zone between the three cats… Marmalade getting elderly was starting to think about Frodo becoming top cat, but then on seeing Parker reasserted his status… Frodo became generally annoyed at the world, but parker and Polly became fast friends, because he had a playful nature and whilst the two older cats had become more chilled and lazy, Polly, despite her age, still wanted to play, which Parker and her did/do frequently!! he also cleans her and when ever he enters the room makes sure he rubs his head on her before even entertaining the idea of seeking cwtches off the humans in the room!!
So there we have I may not be the cat person, but why do I have so many cats, because I have a dog who is!!
