Matchmaker, Matchmaker....

I was just reading Help me! and Cats and Dogs. Got me thinking about my kitties.

An internet friend of mine, just a couple days ago, asked to speak with Tasha (my older cat). Said she needs to get busy finding me a mate, since I'm obviously not doing so myself. The thought makes me laugh... Tasha is so terrified of people, the moment somebody knocks on the door she runs and hides under the bed. Sassy, the young'un, on the other hand... usually runs too, but will hiss and attack anybody walking in the door. And sometimes even people she knows after she's allowed them in the house.

On the other hand, animals and babies are supposedly the best judges of character. Would you consider introducing prospective partners to your pets to get their opinions?? I suppose it's a totally crazy idea. So far, of all the friends and family that have ever visited my apartment... only one has passed muster. lol. Congratulations, shyknight2005! lol.

Cats are good like that. Dogs on the other hand like everyone and she will except anyone who will pat her head. <

oldmt: i suspect you're right thinking of my family's pets (they're golden retriever ppl)... the biggest threat from them is that they'd lick any intruders to death. lol.

I've always been a cat person myself, so I know how they can be sometimes.
I agree with oldmt - cats think they really have no need of you, and so if they like you, it's on their own terms and they think you're a likable person. They're pretty hard to win over if they don't. Even if you feed them, or give them treats - they're as likely to consider it as an offering to not be smitten as a pact of friendship.

This seems rather odd to me. Then again, I'm rather odd myself...

That reminds me of someone I used to know. She told me about a past relationship that was really bad for her. Apparently her dog knew it was not good and would actually push the guy out of her bed. I think that if your pets react differently to someone than they normally do to other people that should be a clue. People tend to pay to much attention to their conscious thoughts and what they want, and tend to ignore intuition. Pets do not seem to have such mental blocks.
Some friends of mine have a cat named Stanley. Stanley used to be afraid of everyone and everything. He is getting better with people now. I think I was probably the one person Who's lap he actually climbed into. apparently I had something he wanted and he could tell that I was not going to do anything unpleasant to him.

Feed those guardians of yours well, Tips. Extra liver is in order. The most nise I get from the dog here is if family is visiting or if she's hungry. I could be robbed blind by consecutive robbers and various crackheads nad she still wouldn't make a peep. Let a feeding go by and the neighborhood thinks I'm torturing her.
Would you like to trade?

hahahhaha KMA: no. thanks though. i love my kitties And sassy is so funny... my mom walked in the front door once (knocked on her way through) and sassy came flying from the opposite side of my apartment, hissing and growling, and almost launched herself off the weight system i have sitting by the front door. i wonder what would have happened if it was somebody she didn't already know and like. she doesn't need any extra food though she's a little fatty. hahaha. (tasha is too skinny but not underweight).

I wouldn't be too quick to judge but I have noticed that most dog people don't understand that cats prefer a soft-spoken approach rather than the tail-wagging enthusiasm they generally give a dog.

BigGirlz: I only have 2 cats, obviously... one does the 'hide till hours after ppl leave' thing... the other may hide, may attack... but also bites.

PK: ummmm... you're not tagging me *again* are you??? (just making sure... i'll go glance at your blog in a few minutes to make sure)

charlieff: that's an interesting concept unfortunately (??) most ppl i know with dogs also have cats... so they know the difference.

OK, a few animal stories for you.
A while back I ran into a friend I knew from when I was a kid. We hadn't seen each other in a while. Our dog took an immediate dislike to him. Would start growling before he even got to our driveway. Turns out he turned into a real jerk. The dog was dead on.

I have a friend who had a cat that hated everyone. And like yours would hiss and swipe at people when they came in or walked too close. Knowing the cat wanted to be left alone I would say "hi mark" just to say hello and then be about my business. One day we are watching a movie and all of a sudden the cat is eating pop corn out of my hand. Was nice to me ever since.

My aunt has always been good with cats. She was over someones house for the first time where they had lots of cats. After a while she said oh, you haven't introduced me to the cats. The woman went about giving her the names of all the cats and finished with and the one your holding is the one that doesn't like anyone.

So yes I would have the pets meet someone new and I would trust them.
