    Are we being conversational?
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    My neighbor has enough cats for a neighborhood. I always have the pleasure of hearing the domestic cat argue with the stray cat over food. Not to mention the cat fights that sound as if they were screaming, "bloody murder"

    My cat is quite big, all the other cats are afraid of him and so we don't have problems with other cats.

    These cats are a tad expensive

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    My Dad hates cats to such a degree that he throws cold water/soft potatoes at them when they come into our garden!

    I had a cat until about a year ago - I can't believe it's been this long already.

    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    That's so sad...

    I've always wanted a kitten but I've been allergic most of the time. The kittens linked in Salem's post would work really nice! But that is more than I can afford. A lot of my pet allergies have gone away or faded, so there is hope for me yet! Maybe a shorthair cat would work best.

    I don't know. Shorthair cat isn't so fluffy anymore.

    Once I saw a nightmare where my cat died. Woke up with tears in my eyes.

    My nabers' nabers have a little dog. Once he came to our garden and my cat started chasing him around the house.

    Max used to kick the ........ out of our dogs. He'd claw them all over and chase them around, but they never did anything back. He actually used to sleep with them.

    My wife is allergic, so I don't have any. She never had a pet growing up, so she doesn't really understand what having one is all about. I think she's warming up to the idea, especially if it were a cat/dog that wouldn't bother her allergies too much. Too bad I don't have a ton of money to drop on a hypoallergenic kitten. Too bad I wouldn't spend that on a kitten even if I did.

    >Max used to kick the ........ out of our dogs.
    Reminds me of the toughest cat ever.
    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.

    So your cat's name was Max?
    My cat is Max too
