I'm a "cat person"...

So there it is, that age old question: 
Are you a cat person or a dog person?

Pardon me as I step up, clear my throat
 and announce my allegiance to cats.
Now please don't get me wrong
-- some of my VERY favorite people are "dog people".

Above, in the white basket, laying on a vintage quilt is my McCoy.  McCoy is one of two house cats - both brothers, now in their eleventh year.  McCoy definitely wears the pants in this family -- he is President, CEO, King -- clearly maker of all rules.  He likes to boss us all about -- but especially his brother, Shawnee.
McCoy, however, has found his purr since arriving at the farm -- and we call him the "miracle of Meadowview Farm" as he once was a very sick cat -- and became a sturdy, healthy cat after arriving here.

 
Then there is Shawnee -- a bit of a big boy...but oh so sweet.  When McCoy has the basket near the heater on a cold winter's night...Shawnee makes do, fitting snugly in the cat toy basket.  Shawnee is joyful and has no problem being a follower.  Shawnee lives for "bunny time" -- when the porch door is propped open with a large concrete rabbit and he can sleep on the screened porch all day.

So -- what is it for you, are you a cat person or a dog person??

oh a cat person for sure. Our pretty boy is Puma an all black long hair. In the winter he has this great thick mane that we love to fluff. He looks so regal stretched across the back of the sofa, his favorite place to lounge as the fireplace fan blows directly over him.

I am both! I was without a cat for almost a year. Our cat died of old age last year. Last week my grandaughter brought me two kittens. A boy and a girl. I haven't had kittens in years. Oh how fun they are to watch....I took pictures of them today I hope to post them on my blog sometime this week. I also have two dogs but kitties are so much fun to snuggle with... Guess it's a toss up....

I pre"fur" the household fur to sleep on my feet, and I'm not sure a cat would do that for me..... Woof!

I have always been a cat person...not only in pet preference but in my own personality--calm and still and fine with being on my own but cuddly and playful from time to time. We have the sweetest dog ever now, Booker T., and he's converted me a bit, but I have always loved kitty cats. Your kittens are precious. So precious. Enjoying your blog...
