    When we first got Gypsy she would bark at my OH and I if we were "bonding" and we would have to assure that I was okay and Daddy wasn't hurting me.
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    This is the same cat I used to wear gum boots around the house to protect my ankles from.
    If that was a dog it would be classified as a Dangerous Dog.
    But being a cat we all seem to allow this sort of thing to go on.
    But a dog has to tow the line all the time.
    This is sort of one reason why I am no cat fan.

    And no Hyacinth this isn't me having a go at you, just an observation on the difference of a dog to a cat.

    I guess the difference between a cat and a dog in this circumstance is that it would be possible for the dog to unman the man in one quick surprise chomp. But it's much more rare for cats to do as much damage before they get removed.

    It's the same deal where big dogs get into more trouble for the same deed as a SWF.

    Pretty sure the man could still have a case for assault. But imagine trying to bring the charges - Your honour - I was attacked by the cat.

    Pretty sure it does happen but doesn't usually make the news or the courts.

    jenr,

    she is probably in the bed with your scent during the day... nothing to worry about. if you dont want her in there during the day just close your door.

    my boy malts like crazy, he has his own bed next to ours which he sleeps in but if the door is left open during the day while we're at work he lies on OUR bed and gets hair everywhere *sigh*... he already has run of the couches, lol.
    A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself

    Any cat that attacks me unprovoked goes flying! Same might happen if they try to steal my food. Something you can't really do with a dog.

    I've had cats who loved to attack my toes under the doona though. Great fun at 3 am.

    being brought up on a farm, dogs were stricly outside only. my old pop would be turning in his grave when Jack shakes himself to wake me up in the middle of winter to get under the doona with me. He doesn't smell, sheds almost nothing(except for about twice a year) so i love having him snuggle up to me

    LOL hya at the cat attack.

    I used to have this wee cat called Echo. When me and OH would be in bed "together", you could gaurantee she would be there too. She would position herself right by our heads and just stare at us purring the whole time LOL
