Four of my cats are almost 12 years old now. One of them, Ziv is a sweet boy. I'll talk to him and he... "talks" back by letting out some variation of "mwwrrrr". Anyway earlier I picked him up and took him to my room. The thing is that in order for him to stay he wants me to constantly pet him, skritch his tummy or pat him on the head. As long as I'm giving him all the affection he craves he will purr and purr and stay. Ziv is such a good boy but just like the other cats he is a total attention hog.

Abby and Rory regularly come into my room, mostly to just lay on my chair or look out my big window. I've been teaching them that they can reach up and open the door on their own, and I always get a kick out of watching them lift up their front paw then use it to open the door. I aid them a little bit of course. My cats are pretty great.

Rory? She wouldn't happen to be named after the Gilmore Girls character would she? My sister has an English Springer Spaniel named Rory. And my Mom has a Poodle named Luke.

I'm more of a cat person. About 5 years ago I had a cat named Teddy. He would reach up and touch the doorknob when he wanted to go out. He was the smartest, most affectionate cat I've ever had. Sadly, he had FIV and dropped dead of a heart attack. My current three cats are siblings that I rescued as kittens from what can only be called a "crazy cat lady". She was recently evicted, and the owner of the house told me that Animal Control found 15 cats in or around her house.
