My pet is so cute.She has such adorable and need eyes.Sometimes I wish she was a person so I would be able to talk to her and ask what she need.It's crazy but sometimes I feel sad because of it.

I had a cat that I kept dreaming could talk.

If they could talk then that would open a can of ethical questions. Would they be oppressed as pets? Would they require citizenship (and the obligations of it) to be protected from how cats are treated now (experimentation, euthanasia, etc)? Would your cat really stay with you then, or even need you? It could happen in some sweet way I think you're imagining it, but I wouldn't assume it would, and I'm sure it would radically change the place of cats in society in any case, for better and worse.

That aside, you might find this interesting:

One guy shared how he talked with a cat when he was a child. It sounded like the magical thinking of a small child (probably about age 10 or younger) in which he'd make meowing noises as he thought intently to ask where his friend was, and the answer was so unlikely (the cat didn't meow back, he just got an impression, and the cat DID turn to stare at the house) he asked again with the same result. So he went and there he was, and that's the only reason he believes something truly paranormal happened there, though whether it was some crude telepathic contact or something more complicated isn't something he can know. He can't even remember why he tried it in the first place.

I had an odd experience myself, though nothing like contact. For context: I was in a room with closed door (didn't want the cats to disturb me while I practiced occult techniques), and door opened directly to the kitchen which was also directly be the stairs to the basement. There was a landing halfway down which had a door outside that the cats would like to come and go from.

So anyway, I had a brief but intense out of body experience, and as I left my body I first passed through the landing area (as if following the usual route to leave the house that way, like habit) and I saw one of the cats there who looked right up at me and followed my movements with her gaze as I passed outside the door. Once outside I quickly went to the nearby beach before pulled back and I doubt the experience lasted more than a full minute. It was so vivid, but I couldn't be sure it hadn't just been a dream, especially as I wouldn't see why the cat would see me then.

So I instantly went to check to see if the cat was indeed by the door wanting to go out (which wasn't that common for her) and she was there. That time she let me know she wanted out. That helped me accept the reality of my out of body experience. I'd guess that because she didn't react to my astral body other than to look that she didn't recognize me as she didn't make any motion to be let outside and may have just "seen a blur" or just "felt something" that she was trying to find but was unable (or possibly realized an astral form couldn't handle the doorknob any better than she could). In any case, I've always wondered what the experience was like for the cat as I passed over her astrally.

Randall, there are breeds that are
hypoallergenic. Some pretty intellectual and cute to boot!

That was a search one but this past Mother's day I adoped two new sons from a rescue location. By chance they are probably half Oriental (we think) but they are virtually easy to care for. So far no shedding.


To answer FatedCinderlla, yes!
I do feel telepathic with animals
often but I need to fine tune it. Being
able to hear words from them, especially
the ones who have passed away, would
be truly a wonder.
Your pet probably mostly wants
you happy because they are so giving.
They really only want is unconditional
love. Which is why you're together.

The Egyptian ones are hairless.
They look like little nude babies,
Or old folks . depending on your interpretation. lol
They are known to be very personable.
Less the freakishly independent loner
Cat. Which I adore ALL cats but
certain ones make better companions.
Depending on your location- winter
time sweaters might be important ..
But how darling.

It's not just hair that people can be allergic to. I've heard there are good medicines to suppress the allergies, but they cost more than someone I knew could afford.

Yes, it is the saliva and not the hair! I have 3 cats and must wash my bare skin that comes in contact with their wet saliva.
Dry cat saliva is not much different than house dust. But if you touch or hold them after they groom themselves you can get an allergic reaction.

They will still groom their skin; so saliva is still an issue.

Cats are for everybody

I was allergic to only one of my five and allergy meds kept it in check.

To answer OP , no. I adore my furfaces for who they are. Dogs and cats have a special place in the cycle of life.
If my Labs were people, they couldn`t lick my face , stretch out on my lap or chew my shoes :
