I understand David I couldn't think of anything good that's why I asked for sugestions for a week
After two weeks of good food and care my husband is leaning toward devil cat , she has definitely gotten her energy back. she will be mischievious and then go love all over him. It's so funny to watch LOL
It's either Sweetie, Sweetheart, or Mia for me I know Stumpy fits the cat more since it has no tail, but this lack of tail reminds me of the event when someone cut it off and was being mean and cruel to the cat, so I'd rather name it something else. Something that does not remind me of the lost tail. And she's so sweet that I'd rather name her Sweetie (and I like Mia as well ).
I love the name and just happened to vote for it too. I think she is a darling little thing. Maybe between you and Isabella you can let me live vicariously through your kitties. Mine around here are all wild and won't let me near them and I am a little afraid of them as they are mean. I just put the food and water out and watch through the window and then they leave.
LOL Rose If you catch or adopt a very small kitten, it won't scratch but it will be completely pliable and dependent upon you. If you raised it, you'd have a kitty that would love you
As for fear of being scratched, this is something - I suppose - one must overcome through frequent contact with cats, even the not-so-nice ones. I've been scratched so many times by my cats (usually as a result of playing with them) that I got used to it and it doesn't bother me anymore. I could try and touch a wild cat even if it were to scratch me. It's only a fear that can be overcome
My father's friend has a huge dog, a Great Dane - you do know how large and heavy they are, right? (up to 120 lbs.) When they stand on their hind legs, they're as tall as a human being, even taller than many people (not kidding). So, my dad's friend knew this man who always boasted that "he's not afraid of even the biggest of dogs" and that "he could easily put any dog down". He actually was a dog trainer. And one time my dad's friend took his dog to see this man. He told the dog to attack the man. So the dog run like wild toward the man ... and guess what? The man grounded the dog with as little as two moves! I think it proves that it's all in the mind (with regards to fear of a particular animal). Besides, animals can sense fear in humans - and the more afraid you are, the more likely they're to attack you.
P.S. If you think the Great Dane is heavy, check the weight of St. Bernard: up to 200 lbs. !!!
