Rare Footage!

One morning, I was sipping coffee outdoors. . . . Enjoying paper lanterns hanging from our tree like earrings. . . . When my husband joined me, SUDDENLY, Rex, our adopted outdoor cat jumped on Doug's lap begging for attention! I ran for my camera to take these RARE photos of my-husband-the-canine-lover, feline-hater! I was able to capture this rare footage before Doug started sneezing and repeating his diatribe about how cats are finicky, flighty, and temperamental! One day I should devote an entire post to Rex. He's an ideal companion and he thinks he's a lap dog, maybe for Doug's benefit!

Yes! An entire post!! He is a doll!
It always cracks me up how they just seem to have that "kitty radar" and head straight for the
"hater's lap"!!!! Too funny!

M ^..^

My husband claims to be a cat hater too; but I think he secretly adores them. I know they really like him and are always happy to see him. He says he "tolerates" them for my benefit. Yeah, right.

Same goes here. DH hated cats until on named Patches took up with him and now he likes only her!!

However they are not on my good list today, nope, no good felines around my home today. They got up on a table on the patio and dumped out a bucket of white paint on the concrete patio. OMG! See why they are not my friends today!!

Great shots of yours though, he looks innocent!

Your kitty is beautiful ;) and I am not a cat lover myself, I prefer dogs but I wouldn't say I hate them, I love, love, love animals.

He's gorgeous! Reminds me of my George. Is he part Maine Coon? Looks like he is. George is part Maine Coon, big with markings similar to your cat's. He is quite the lap dog. LOVE the photos! Your porch is lovely! It's made especially warm and cozy with a sweet cat lumbering about.

We just adopted our first cat
about a year ago. He was supposed to be my dd's cat but soon adopted my dh and I...neither of us liked cats. But he wormed his way into our hearts. I say this little guy has done the same with you all.

WHAT! How could anyone hate that little face? You know your husband loves Rex. He is just trying to act all manly. He is just an ol' softy at heart.

Rex is darling!

Hugs,
Joanne

What a sweet kitty.
They seem to go straight to the supposed cat haters - maybe trying to convert them
