coming up with Japanese ship names, and one of the names translates to "Girl", "Maiden", or my personal favorite, "Virgin".

HMIJS Shojo (Virgin) was commissioned on this day...

How would Stalker Girl translate?

(I tried Google Translate, which gave me this: Sutôkâ Gâru.)

Your guess is as good as mine. What if Sutôkâ Gâru turns into Batto tawagoto kureijī (バットたわごとクレイジ)...

The cats wake you up at 0530 in the morning. All of them are rescue cats, but one has a very bad anger issue and attacks all the others - but the male regularly kicks her butt and ends that act. Anyway, Kimo (named because of chemotherapy) launches a vicious attack against Comet (fast and beautiful and about a year old), I arise out of a night's slumber. get out of bed (grabbing my pee bag due to bladder removal), get a grasp on what is happening and notice Kimo using escape and evasion tactics in front of me. I decide to teach her a lesson and this tough old Marine takes a mighty swing with his right foot, connecting with the dresser.

Result: one cat that got away. Me standing there holding my pee bag in considerable pain with the toe nail on my right foot removed by the impact with the dresser. Blood in significant quantities from the scene of the retribution kick to the toilet area where such pee bag is unattached from my body, and considerable blood on the carpet in the bedroom where I finally realize the extent of what has happened.

Memo to myself: Do not attempt to kick mean cat upon waking up. Keep on pondering how to handle cat with aggression issues, but maybe it is best not to reflect aggression issues back upon cat.

So, I don't thing I am really that smart..................Sob.

We have five cats in our household. I will take the blame for getting TWO of those five. The rest are Paula's AKA...Lorena's.

She is upstairs and I am sure she SENSED that I just wrote. Maybe I better leave for inventory early tonight!

Four cats here. Guess I'm getting to be a soft-hearted Marine. Who'd of thought there could be such a critter as me?

Two cats here. I have learned not to try to use any body part to punish them. What I do is strategically place a number of squirt bottles filled with water all around the house. I have not found a cat (and I have had four before these two) that can continue a course of action after a squirt or two.

I had 2 cats, both of them I had since they were kittens. One died at age 13, the other at age 17. I can't go through that again. I had to put them both to sleep.

Pets, can barely take care of myself, much less pets. Kids have them and they're great. Have sat for them on occasion, and they survived. Besides I spend too much time out of the house, and I don't like to leave animals alone all the time. Don't think its a good thing. Although I think my sons' dog would appreciate a bit of alone time these days. Grandson is a real terrorist, and only age one.

Five cats (2 girls & 3 boys), all rescues.
Wife fosters kittens for the local cat rescue group.
Totally surprised she does now want to keep every kitten she fosters.
She is an excellent candidate to become a classic "Cat Lady".

Yes, I like them also.

You guys are warming my heart.

Have dedicated my life to caring for stray and injured cats.

Currently have 4 with a sometimes visitor as number 5.

Once had as many as 9.

Have raised 4 amputees. They had wonderful lives.

I like cats, they like me but that is probably because they sense I am allergic to them.
Really badly allergic, to dogs also but only a minor reaction so I've had dogs as pets.
Want to get a malamute at some point, not the right time though.

I'm allergic to dogs, so the very first person any dog that walks up to in a room is me. Never fails. But in my case, at least its only a moderate allergy. I'll get stuffy and sneeze a lot, probably end up with a headache, but that's about the worst of it.

I am however not allergic to cats at all. I'm kinda odd. Cats are essentially the only animals I am not allergic to. So naturally I have a cat in the house.

I wasn't really trying to hijack a thread. The title "when you think you're really smart" just seemed appropriate at the time of the incident and the results thereof.

Kimo is really a sweet cat. Climbs up on me and purrs loudly when I pet her. Then out of nowhere she tries to bite me and had does it consistently for over a year and a half. I just can't get a handle on her. One second loving and purring, and the next is in full attack mode, and it is true when around the other cats.

The lost toe nail hurt like hell for many days, then I got smarter and removed the bandage (lordy, what pain!), and let it ooze and heal. I love my little critters, but i can't stand one attacking another for no viable reason. I do use squirt bottles, calming portions, and showing the aggressor extra love and attention, but still the aggression goes on.

So. yeah, I'm not as smart as I think, and I apologize the the Admiral for this lowly Marine Staff Sargent hijacking his thread. It just seemed appropriate at the time.

Cats! What you gonna do? The answer always eludes me.

You are rewarding the aggressive behaviour and ensuring that it will be continued. To the cat, the way to get attention of the alpha male (you) it to attack other cats lower in the clawing order. Cats do not understand spreading the love you shower on them, they understand and respect power over them making them do what they don't really want to do. But if you see the aggressive cat nuzzling another cat, that's the time to reward it with more TLC.
