Five Feline Traits

Dailymail ran an article on cats' personality mirroring their owner's and it led to a link to a personality quiz for my kitty. In a nutshell there are five feline traits: Skittishness, Outgoing, Dominance, Friendliness and Spontaneity. Her results come across as mostly accurate, but I'm also the person who filled out the survey so it would be very strange if they didn't. She's typical on most, a high outlier on Outgoing and Skittishness and low on Spontaneity. They mention indoor cats tend to rank Friendlier, but taking a closer look it also impacts the Spontaneity score. She's lower than I would have guessed from my survey responses, so there's a weighted variable factor in play of the indoor/outdoor hours per day, FYI. 

Figured I'd share the links if anyone is interested, you get a report emailed to you that explains the characteristics and has a graph showing where they fall compared to other cats!

I'm awake because of the cat and her made up games, this is first time she's had stairs and the novelty of sprinting them in her made up obstacle courses hasn't worn off. Her speed racer trilling is loud, but I appreciate that she cheers herself on. I don't know if that's one of the mirrored behaviors discussed in the article and project, because I too actively encourage myself and did so while cleaning out the fridge (whole other bucket of self examination there). 

She's a sweet cat, for the most part just wants to be wherever I am and opens door handles to get her way, bathroom included. She brings me toys to play with her, brings me her favorite bottle caps when I have a migraine and puts them in the bed to cheer me up. 

I'm a bit nervous about our future, my ex is really wanting her to come live with him or fly her out for a visit. I've got to do more research on it, he paid all of the adoption and vet fees, but also let me bring her when I moved. He can get very stubborn and currently has the upper hand financially, but I don't think it's good for her anxiety to start flying her about.

If you take the survey let me know how your kitty ranks and how accurate you think it is!

      “Allow him to grow up as he leads”?

      Umm, I would prefer that my husband already be grown up before we get married, thankyouverymuch, Kenny-boy.

      I know, right? If I wanted to raise a child, I'd birth or adopt one, not marry one. Anyone who is an adult sharing a house with me better be an actual adult who pulls their weight and is an equal partner. If I feel the need to constantly feed and clean up after someone I'll get a cat.

      I could not see her coupled up with Jesse Maxwell.  I doubt Jesse could land a fundie princess like Allison. 

      Why not!  :mouse-shock:  His big bro landed that ultimate fundie princess Chelsy, after all.   The lad could try. 

      Poor Jesse.   We all dismiss him for his lack of hotness compared to John.   I have a soft spot for him but my hopes of his doing a runner from Maxhell are dwindling.

      Allison is probably one of the few single women (other than his sisters) he gets to meet under the age of 80.  I'm sure he is pining after her.  And don't forget he had the initiative to clean up the woodpile all by himself and owns a house debt-free. 

      He's a catch.  A catch, I tell you!  :laughing-rollingred:

      I was perusing the RC-Lisa facebook pictures and all of a sudden I realized that RCjr and Mario Batali look freakishly alike- especially now that Jr has grown himself a mullet!  Does anyone else see it?

      I wish her critical thinking skills were as functional as her uterus.

      I think too much emphasis is put on Josh wanting to specifically be a lawyer at, what, 16? I did too at 16! (Spoiler alert: I'm not) Your average 16 year old isn't likely to know what their occupation will be in ten years. Most people I know changed majors a few times. And that's fine and normal.   I have exactly two friends that did what they said they were going to do career-wise in high school. 

      Yes it sucks he didn't truly have realistic options, but my sympathy for Josh was dried up when he assaulted five girls (that we know about). 

      I wasn't even 16! I took the LSATs, was a paralegal for 3 months and quit. I HATED it so much. 

      The rest I totally agree with you.
