I have had cats (since I was a kid) for years and I have never had one that didn't mind a closed door. All of them scratched at till it was opened.
No doggie door as in the flap animals can go through when a door is closed.

My cat doesn't mind a closed door at night as long as he's on the same side of it as me. He's also spoiled and has his own pillow to sleep on.

That's great, they are starting to get along really nicely. The first thing that popped into my head was, Holy Crap there's going to be a lot of hair on that bed

I don't mind the cats being in my room, it's that I like to have the bedroom doors closed for privacy reasons. The cats get free range of the house with the exception of the powder room, and they don't even bother trying to claw that door. We're renting our spare room out to a friend right now and when our room is messy I just close the door to hide it.

^ ^ They're not shedding much right now--but I guess we have that to look forward to! As MrPurrl once said, "The amount of cat hair on your clothes shows how much you love your cats."

A stray cat ventured into our backyard this morning. Sheldon went bananas. Not like he was going to attack, he was just so excited, he didn't know what to do. He bounced back and forth between two windows trying to see the cat and where it was going. It was like watching a little kid. It was hilarious. He'd turn around and meow at me then bounce to the other window. We had breakfast and a show.

speaking of stray cats...my parents now have one. my mom saw a tiny cat and went to offer it some food, and it jumped in the car instead. so it's chilling in the sunroom until they can find out if it's lost or just a stray. it seems awfully domesticated, but bobo had a sweet personality too and he was definitely a stray.

she's a cutie:

These are my cats:

Lucy, named after the Charlie Brown character.


Finn, named after Finnegan's Wake.


They're not related at all, we adopted them separately. I think Lucy is a few weeks older than Finn. Both are around 2 now though.

Hairballs are vile. Especially when they end up all over my laptop!

Sheldon has been brushed thoroughly so hopefully it won't happen again tonight. I had enough hair left over to make another cat. Or a kitten at least.

I must have some sort of magical touch. I've had five cats over the course of my life, and I've cat-sit for various neighbors with cats since I was 11, and I've never once seen a hairball. Not once.

Wow, wanna trade? If I don't brush Miep daily there's a hairball the next day. And she's a short haired cat!
