feline confessions

I think its strange how I don't have one friend who likes cats. I even think all my friends hate them over most any creature. I always told my brothers to "be wary of girls who don't like cats." But now I'm wondering if there are such girls at all (my brothers couldn't find them).

I love them so much. My house didn't feel like home until Winston jumped out of his humane society box onto my kitchen floor and meowed like mad.

We had an incredibly sick family last week with everyone but Josh in bed with the flu. I picked up like the most ridiculous hobby in bed during my on-line reading; the cat classifieds on KSL. They read like a novel. Its a whole new level of lameness, trust me I know. Here are a few fun ones I found:




Big, Handsome, Single Guy Looking For Love!
- Jan 30, 2009
Hi, my name is Tuffins but everybody calls me Tuffy - except my foster mom who insists on calling me 'Tuff Guy'. She's just making a joke, though, because I may look like a 'tough guy' but I'm really just a super sweet, shy bachelor looking for my soul mate!

I'm a very handsome black cat and I lived my entire life with my father, Boots, my sister, Callie, and our very best human friend, Steve. Unfortunately, Steve went off to the hospital and he never came back to us. I was rescued by No More Homeless Pets in Utah and now I'm looking for someone new to love.

I'm seven years old, very healthy, playful, well mannered and affectionate when I get to know you. I love to snuggle in warm laps and gets lots of brushing. I'm a little scared of new people and places so you will have to be patient with me at first. But, of course, all special relationships take a while to develop! I get along with most other cats, especially my dad, Boots, who is also looking for his forever home, but could be your only love. So if you're looking for a loyal, devoted friend, I'm just waiting to go home with you!

Free,PLEASE help give him a new home so he doesn't have to go to the shelter(Last Resort)! He is a great cat, behaves very well, great manners, awesome with children, lets my little girl play with him to her hearts content. I wish i didn't have to get rid of him but we are in an apartment. Thought i could get away with it but the landlord found out. I have two weeks to find him a new home so if your interested please let me know! He is gorgeous! Blue eyes, he is a long haired but i didn't want him to shed so we shaved him like a lion so indoors is a MUST! He is Declawed and Neutered.

Stewart-Beautiful Boy- Sweet ( most of the time!) $75
- Jan 26, 2009
Hi,my name is Stewart.I am a beautiful Black and White Single Male. I was rescued on the last day(on euthanasia list.) So lucky for me I'm still around. I need a home. Preferably the mature, advanced cat owner is best, NO small children, or other pets especially Cats please! I do best on my own. I am fully Vaccinated & Healthy. I am Neutered. I am a real stinker sometimes. I don't need to cuddle. If your independent, that works good for me. My rescuer CANNOT be liable for any damage I may inflict on my new owner..(I like to play rough) ..

I love these, Alisa! I think the last one is my favorite; the price is right. I think the owner is trying to get some money for a new couch, bed, carpet, etc.
I also love cats. Something about how they act like the couldn't care less whether you like them or not makes me want to prove to them that they need me.

Amy said...

I may not love cats, but I do like them better than dogs. Because of Mike's love of cats, I'm sure we'll end up with one someday.

Also, I loved all the cat ads. Stewart sounds like such a loveable cat...who wouldn't pay $75! for such a nice cat.

lindsay said...

this is great alisa!! we found a sad little cat dying in our window well during Christmas and now I AM OFFICIALLY a cat person... I love it (still don't know if it is a girl or boy) we call it abe but... who cares, love is boundless.

Natalee said...

That is absolutely hillarious.

Sonja said...

Okay, that is the funniest thing I've read in a long time.

Bryanna said...

That was pretty entertaining!

People really do love their cats! My brother Andrew's cat Chippy is the most violent, mean spirited cat I have ever encountered. She would just as soon bite you as look at you, but Andrew ADORES her, even when she attacks his face in the morning. I've never understood his devotion?

I don't hate cats, but I can't ever see their advantage over dogs? Maybe one: They're quieter!

mamabear said...

There's nothing I like more than laying on your couch with a child on one side and Winston right smack dab in the middle purring as if he were the most important part of that scene.

Karlet said...

Those are awesome! Did Winston curl up on your lap while you looked at them?

lou said...

Winston curls on your lap at every opportunity, so I wouldn't be surprised if he did.

AnneMarie said...

who shaves their cat like a lion?

Mandy said...

Those are some awesome ads! I have some pretty fond memories of our cat days. Remember Grey Socks and the Lady incident? Sad, sad day.

I also love cats and have a big fat cat named Mitch who curls up on my bed each day. Maybe he needs a friend. Maybe the one shaved like the lion?

Sonja said...

I had a thought last night--why couldn't these be the start of our great novel? A chapter about each one, for instance and we start out the chapter with the ad in italics.. . I think there might be something there.

Doc said...

Not all your brothers married cat haters - Brittany is a big fan. In fact, we have two nephews named after family cats.
That Stewart ad is amazing. I want to call to see if he is sold...

SSBenjamins said...

I LOVE CATS... my husband does not :(
I want to have a cat in our home and he will not allow it. So, I have a confession as well, we have had them growing up our entire lives even with my brother (jeremy Veenendaal) being allergic to them.

Jewel said...

Sounds like cat owners have good senses of humor and are sensitive to how others feel, humans or cats. That is good.

Jessica Marie said...

Hmmm...that actually made me consider getting a cat. It's about time we had a pet around here.

jennie said...

It's not that I don't like cats, Alisa... I just want to wash my hands immediately after touching one. That goes for dogs too. Actually, that goes for people too. See? I'm the weird one.

I have 4 cats and we had a Dog when Daniel was small he came to us in Wayne County when we were camping on our land (grover Utah) we asked every one around us if this was there dog and they all said No but we think he must had belong to a couple because when they drove by he got a angry bark like he new them and they were mean to him. we had him for about 5 or 6 years he had to be put to sleep he was blind both front & Back legs were turned in he had a lump on his back it was so hard to have him put to sleep he was so much part of the family. Daniel and his dog would play tough a war with the garden hose. We now have 4 cats but as long as I can remember being married we have allways had one cat the one I remember was a male cat sometimes you would be walking and he would grab you pant leg he took off and we never saw him again then we had two other cats one we got as a baby she got cought in the fance and we had to niurse her back to helth this took a wile then she had kittens we keept one she was Black but a sweet kitten / cat she got hit on the frontage road and that took alot out of all of us. The Mom cat was white, with Orange tips on ears, tabby tail she was beautiful she was about 12 when she took off to die. by that time we had 2 other cats as well Screamer she is black we had her 12 years now we let her have one set of kittens then got her fixed then we got Patches (regina) cat she was living at the High school under a trailer when Mari came home with her the end of her Jr year didnt have the hart to let her die she had a set of kittens here when we got her fixed then last summer we found two kittens at the creck someone droped off they are black with wite paws they are boys and they have been fixed and also for sale if anyone can take them they are litter boxed trained and like people. a little shy but come around after they get to know you
