 Yes Gale I really do think that our pets know when something isn't right assuming that they have been part of the household for a while. Isn't it that an extra part of them that we love? And I think that animals are smarter than some people give them credit for. Do you?

 Ann you made MY day not the reverse! Both my daughter & I are sitting here just laughing away at the pics! I saved them to show other people later. Think of two grown women sitting here saying "ahhh" repeatedly!

 I have a kitty & her name is Fuzzy. She's nine & I simply adore her. She's my bed buddy and it's so great that she doesn't snore and she doesn't mind that I do! She's a long haired Siamese with the biggest blue eyes that you've ever seen. We sit and have conversations that go on for several minutes sometimes. After all this time together I think that she's got me trained to read her mind! When she wants something I usually get it for her before she even asks me. She takes after her ma (me) and loves cheeses & for her the smelliest ones are best!

GRANA here;
Maestro has a new behavior/activity:
He sits next  to paw paw & taps hubby's  tummys if to say( "Hey you;I'm here get me...fil in the blank!
By now hubby( paw paw )knows just what is wanted( a cuddle; a cookie/treat grooming g  or prhaps it's meal time???????????; But that usually gets a more agressive tapping(Kitty punch)Laughing

 Maestro has a new behavior: When he wants something he taps paw paw's tummy& stares as if to say;"heyyou,I'm here" Perhaps attention, a cookie. a cuddle, groming or food if hubby's been neglectful/distractedThe request for food usually comes in a more forceful manner ( kitty punch, not a tap

 OurCali is less compulsive about food; finally trusts that she will be fed again soon.Maestro is still my sweet lovey boy eating more & is less patient wating for breakfast.He gets up when I go to  to the toilet;  in the middle of the night till he realizes  that a I don't do overnight feedings; he climbs onto pawpaw's back or side to encourage him to get up to prepare reakfast.    CALI   is   finally  a lap cat .... as soon as pawpaw provides a lap;[done with chores& daily 5 mile walk; Cali jumps on him to cuddle & snooze.Mestro is stll &  always has been a cudle kitty,sometimes desparate for a lap or other place t sprawl out or cuddle...They are both so sweet & loveable  bringing  so much joy into our lidailylives .Kiss
Kiss

In Response to ARE YO R PETS A PART OF YOUR FAMILY OR MERELY POSESSIONS??????????????????? : That's neat, Ann, that the majority of the votes say pets are definitely part of the family!! Our cat sure is and he's taken over the house since he moved in earlier this year after we lost our beloved cat of 14 years. I still miss him because he was so much a part of our family. I really think it is sad when people have pets and they don't really care one way or another about them. They are more like a possession to them. Why would a person want a pet if not to love and make a part of their family? And I have a question for you, Ann. Yours is the second post I've seen added with a survey attached. How are you attaching a survey???
