But to be able to play with a cat that big. Just walk up to it and hug it and wrestle with it like you would a big dog.

Take your cat with you and no lousy puma will dare to show up. :)

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Reminds me when my dog was in a cone. He figured out an advantage during dinner time. The cone would act as a food shield. He would gobble up his own food and the cats food like a vacuum cleaner, and there was nothing they could do.
Such potential!

Fuck me. That one looks just like my 20 pounder Max. What a fucking hoot. Never forget that one if I live to be a million. And I won't live another 10 years I'm betting.

Yeah. Lights on, filming herself.

Reminds me though of a story from back when I was a newlywed.

The first time I took my wife home to meet my parents and we stayed in the guest room while visiting.

My wife had never lived with a housecat before. Sometime in the middle of the night as we were both asleep, she suddenly felt something crawling into bed with her and lying down on her legs. Room was dark and it was her first night there, so understandably she wasn't expecting this. She screamed and kicked, not knowing that it was just our cat Leo, looking for a warm person to sleep on. Leo ran out of the room and she felt sorry, wishing he would come back, but he never did.

Heh.

I will dispense with my usual hiLARious salacious references to "she was scared of foreign pussy!" and "Gram's Mom!"

Long ago I stayed at a friend's. I never believed the stories in this Letters Column until the three cheerleaders. Normally, I would wake up much like Your Wifu-sama--*snicker! snicker!* et cetera--but I guess my friend's cat caught me at the right time--*snicker! snicker!*--between cycles, so I noticed something climbing up my legs.

So I looked to see said kitty slowly walking up to my chest. She looked at me warily, and I did not do I would probably do which is freak out. So said kitty relaxed and nestled on my chest and fell asleep.

Was kind of cute. I fell back asleep but would occasionally wake up. One time I noticed her dreaming. Her eyes were closed but she was lifting her head making mewing sounds at "something."

Yeah, I think she just reacted on instinct to something that she totally wasn't expecting.
Whenever you are sleeping somewhere other than your own house and your own bed where you normally sleep, if you wake up from a deep sleep, it takes a second or two to remember where you are. Combine that with the reason you wake up is "something is walking up my leg" and probably some kind of natural survival instinct takes over, which is what happened. I saw Leo running out the door so I immediately realized what had happened, but it was probably a moment of terror for her. We laugh about it now. This was many years ago and Leo passed away a long time ago, but we still remember that night.

Also the next morning was weird because some sheep belonging to our neighbors had somehow gotten out of their pasture and were grazing on our front lawn when she woke up and looked out the window. She was like, "Why didn't you tell me about the sheep!?" Me: "Sheep? What sheep?" I wasn't expecting any sheep either because my parents don't keep livestock. It was just a rare coincidence. Something that happened maybe a few times when I was a kid, either cows or sheep getting out of their pastures and wandering onto our land.
