Ya, cats and dogs all have their little oddities. I miss all the dogs and cats I've ever had. I just recently took in another stray (haven't done that for at least 6 years now), I haven't even had any pets for the last 5 years. This cat, well, she's got her own issues and she's starting to relax a little more every day. I think she was abused, so she's coming around quite quickly considering.
I do miss having kittens around, I love to raise them right from birth. My favorite cat by far was one that I had raised, she was an outdoor cat and she used to guard the house like a guard dog. Best cat ever.
