Pissed Cat Part II

OK, here is my angry calico from last Halloween. She is quite the handful but the one picture on the left actually makes her look almost sweet. The other is more of a full picture, to give you an idea. Both are screen captures, taken in my very dark room, so that's why the quality stinks. But you get the idea.

She also looks lovely in her Halloween costume but not as cute as the othe rone.

TS, I knew you'd be like that, lol.

felis, there in lies the rub -- as to why those two do NOT get along. :) Serious rivalry.

Some funny slang trivia; but "pissed" in Oz means "wasted" - seriously drunk.

Pissed off means what you just said. :-)

Don't think that I haven't considered getting my cat drunk. It'd be nice to see her loosened up. ;)

Calicos often don't get along with other cats, or so says my vet. I have two calicos and know that from first-hand experience. However, my two calicos will double-team and gang up on the newest member, a Siamese mix, whom I've previously mentioned as "The Litter Box Police."

To all,
1. Cats rule!

2. Call a dog, and it comes to you. Call a cat and you get this response: "I hear ya. Leave a message."

Adorable. We had a very smart red tabby for years.

That's very interesting about calico cats. I had one many years ago, but she was my only cat at the time, so I never had an opportunity to see how she behaved around other cats. Now, somehow, I've ended up with five of them and most of them don't get along with each other. None of them are calicos, but one is a tortoiseshell and I wonder if it's a trait of those tri-colored cats...because she's an absolute drama queen.

Now, hopefully, I won't bring the wrath of the dog-lovers down on my head, but the way I used to hear that saying about cats is:

"Cats rule...dogs drool."

Red tabbies are supposed to have the highest IQ's. My predominantly-red calico is definitely the smartest of my four girls. She's also the shyest.

Personally, I think these pictures are hilarious.

I really don't want you all to think I am the type of person who goes around trying little outfits on my pets. Honest -- they just seem to be such big hits on Halloween so i thought I'd get them into the spirit. ;) (Gindy, I'm glad you're amused -- they crack me up too)

As for calicos, they seem to me to be highly intelligent. As a pal said, calicos need to take attendence. Mine darts in and out, smells everything, keeps watch. It's pretty funny. The best -- she loves to smell everyone's breath. Go figure.

Muse, I don't think I've ever seen a red tabby...sounds gorgeous. AOW, your poor Siamese mix. Awww! Rory, gotta love our drama queens. That's definitely my calico. Her vet even said so during her kitten escapades of pretending to have a limp, longer than it actually hurt her, cause she saw my reaction every time she limped around.
