Well, we made the plunge and got a new kitten. This is Bill (named for William Shakespeare - or Bill the Butcher, according to me).

Good for you, I hope you enjoy it. I made the mistake of letting my wife get one. I am on the road a lot and it keeps her company. (Better then the UPS Man) She is gone this weekend and the thing is driving me fricken nuts. Do cats really taste like chicken?

Cool. We traditionally keep two cats. My wife and daughter occasionally bring up the idea of getting another one, which no dobut would be follwed by another and so on. One of the great accomplishments of my life is keeping my family from going over the edge and becoming crazy cat people.

Cats are low maintenance. Ours definitely have personality. They like water, sleeping under the covers and being as high up as possible, plus very little shedding. Bill looks like a long hair.
My daughter wants a dog but I don't know that we're ready for the commitment.

Here's a pic of the cat that came home as a kitten a year ago. I've never seen a cat sit like this but he'll come into the living room and plop down like this and actually even fall asleep sitting up. He's got a messed up tail (not a bob-tail, just badly deformed to the point that it is only about 2 inches long and curles at 3 different 90 degree angles - we call him Curley).

Bill has a TON of personality... what a little nut job. He's a "semi" long hair. Our other cat is a long-hair, so we're used to the fur and the shedding. I think he's going to grow up to be a good looking cat.

My wife and I had a dog, and we loved him a lot. When we moved to KC, we weren't able to have dogs - certainly not one of Sonny's stature (110 pounds). Luckily, my parents decided they wanted him, and frankly I think he's better for it. They have more time to devote to him, and I know he's well taken care of and just loves it with them.

The cat we had to euthanize a little bit a go, Mille, would sit like that, but it was always in a chair. It was almost like she saw Kim and I sit like that on the couch so she thought it was normal.

Dogs a OK, depending on the dog. But I'm partial to cats because I feel like when a cat loves me it's because he really loves me... he chooses to love me. When a dog loves me it's because he doesn't know any better.

And cats have moods... I like that. I have moods, too.

Generally speaking, the reason a lot of people like cats is the exact reason a lot of people don't like cats. They're independent. Personally, I love that about them.

This morning, I'm very sad.

We had to give Bill up yesterday. We've tried over the past eight months, but Bill and our other cat (Rosie) cannot get along.

Bill has to be an only-cat house. He's very aggressive, and over the past couple of months has caused two infections from his bite to our other cat. He was constantly trying to dominate her, as both have a bit of an Alpha-male mentality.

We found him a good home, where he'll be the only animal in a house of four waiting to dote over him.

It's very rough to deal with the loss of a friend, even if it's not in death.

I have four cats and they all get along pretty well.3 males one female. The only time we have problems is when they see the male cat across the street. One of our cats is a Siamese and he is a one person cat. He only seems to like my husband.

Really sorry to hear that, man. My sister just got a male kitten (named Gus) in November and wanted to get it together with my parents' cat (named Louise) while it was young so they would at least be used to each other, and Louise (fairly old... 11 years) wouldn't see it as an intruder.

Problem is the old cat is a maine coon. Big. Ass. Cat. Also not very active, though she used to be. We waited awhile for Gus to get all his shots and declawed then we brought them together. Bad idea. Louise was alright with it but Gus is still an energetic kitten and pissed her off pretty severely. We probably waited too long, but we just wanted to make sure all of Gus' shots were taken care of. Needless to say, these cats will remain in their seperate homes and combining them when one house goes out of town is not an option.

As a cat lover, you probably understand the reasons you had to let Lenny/Bill go. As you said, you appreciate that they both have personalities. That's kinda just what happened, I guess.

Dare I say try getting a new cat and trying again? Or maybe Rosie is just the kind of cat that won't let it happen?

I remember when I was younger, about 8, we had to get rid of our cat because he got a urinary tract infection and couldn't re-learn to use the litter box. The little son of a bitch was pissing all over the place and cost me a very good (and popular at the time) bean bag. We ended up giving him to the SPCA. I never found out if they had to put him down or if someone was able to pick him up.

When my wife and I first moved in together, my cat, who was a very old calico and had never been around other animals, absolutely refused to adjust. Fought with the other cats, pissed all over the house in protest, until we finally had to give her to Jen's parents. She didn't live much longer after that, but at least spend her last few months in peace. Some cats just don't work and play well with others. It seems odd, though, that yours never bonded since the second one came in as a kitten.

Bill was really the problem, not Rosie. I honestly think part of the problem was Rosie was too patient while he was smaller than her. She had the opportunity when he was 6 weeks old to exert alpha dominance, but she never did. Then he got bigger than her.

Truly, he was always the aggressor. She'd be laying on the couch and he'd jump up and attack her. It got where she figured out if she'd sit between me and my wife she'd be safe because Bill wouldn't attack her then.

Rosie's 10 years old, and perfectly happy being in a one-cat household.

We had a cat a couple years ago for a couple of weeks that she wouldn't accept. Would. Not. Accept. Over the two weeks he was there, she got more and more aggressive to him.

Then we got Mille 7 years ago, and Rose was not happy, but warmed up.

Well, we got Bill in June after we had to put Mille down, and while Rosie was accepting of him, he was just too aggressive towards her. We thought he'd calm down after we got him neutered, and for a week or two it did. But not long. He was soon back to instigating fights, biting and attacking her at random, bullying her away from her food and water...

It just wasn't fair anymore, to either him or Rosie.

I guess my current situation was aided by the fact that our older cats are about twice the size as our newest one. She tries to fuck with them occasionally but they beat her down quickly, even though they're 14 and she's three.

She just never would exert that dominance over Bill.

When it comes time to deal with Rose dying, which I hope is a very LONG time away, we'll get two kittens at the same time, possibly from the same litter.
