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!

      I recently discovered this family and just saw that it is on FJ, so thought I'd join the chat.

      I agree with most of the opinions on here. First of all, the names are just 🤢. Actually most of them would be pretty acceptable if it wasn't for the ridiculous spellings and the weird, random capital letters in the middle of the name - is that even legal? 🤔
      Regarding changing their names after adoption, I guess people have different viewpoints. Personally I think if the child is old enough to know their name, they should at least be able to choose if they want to change it. It is a part of their identity in some way. Also, since they were fostered for some time before the adoption, I'm guessing they were calling them by their original names? It is a little strange to suddenly have a completely different name after adoption. 

      I'm guessing their channel is catered to a younger audience (teen/pre-teen) based on the click-bait titles, cringey, over-top enthusiasm and patronising voices. Its just too much for me 🤢

      Apart from the typical YT family channel  exploitation of minors, there's not really much to snark on 🤔. They obviously have the financial resources to take care of all these children instead of cramming them all in one room and feeding them sub-standard canned junk. The children seem genuinely happy and well cared for. I like that they actually get to go to school and interact with other children their age. The parents also seem to encourage them to develop their interests, which seems to be rare in the fundie world. One of the boys (Luke) is interested in theatre and dance and Delaynee? I think is a more 'tomboy', sporty type. They are both encouraged to participate in activities which are associated with the opposite gender - another rarity in the fundie world. 

      Someone mentioned that they shouldn't be allowed to adopt so many when they already have a lot of biological children. I personally think that there shouldnt be a limit as long as they are able to adequately provide for them. Plus, they adopted a rather large sibling group, which had a very low chance of being adopted. They would have either been separated or stuck in the foster care system permanently. 

      There may be more going on in the background which we don't see, but compared to some of the families discussed on this site, the seem like parents of the year 😅

      Sorry for the essay 😬

      Bridger’s adoption story posted Friday 

      something Russian that begins with K Vladimir Alexandrovich.  His New middle name is Alexander.  He likes having two names.  I like that his patronymic is his middle name now.

       

      I was a bit confused by Bridger's name. I'm pretty sure that Kuzotzskin is actually a surname, not a given name. His actual name was probably Vladimir (given name), Aleksandrovich (Patronymic name) Kuzotzskin (surname). I'm just confused why it was given in that order 🤔. Maybe he remembers being called by his surname, rather than his given name?It would be a little bit worrying that they don't know what his name was.

      So many of these fundy patriarchs have to be the rulers in their own little bubbles and they set up their family and a few other loyal retainers (i.e., sons in law) as their subjects. 

       It's...almost...as if...it attracts a certain type of personality.

      I wash my hair daily, especially in the summer. In the winter I sometimes wash it every other day, depending on wether or not I have to go somewhere that day.
      I sweat a lot, and I sweat a lot on my scalp. I also excersize daily. After a work-out routine, my hair looks and feels like I have just taken a shower. It's completely drenched in sweat because my scalp gets super sweaty. Therefore, I wash it everyday. In the winter, on days that I don't wash it but do excersize, I still rinse it with water because of the sweat that gets in my hair.

      I have long hair (breast length), so if I would have to blow-dry my hair after every wash, dat would take up more time. On warm spring days, on rainy days, and during the summer, I don't blow dry my hair. I just wear it up and it's dry at the end of the day. (From March onward it's too warm for me to wear my hair down, so I just always wear it up, until the end of November, when it's usually cold enough for me to be able to wear my hair down again). During the winter I do blow dry it when I have to leave the house. If I stay in I just let it air dry.

      Oh man, ear piercing is a controversial issue in my family. 😂

      My mom had hers done as a baby which was normal in her country. 

      My older sister traumatised our mom when she started senior school (age 11 over here). She begged and nagged constantly because all her friends had pierced ears and she wanted them too. But my mom said she had to wait until the school holidays so they could heal. I didn't find out any of this until a few years ago. 

      When it was my turn to move up a school, my aunt came by at the beginning of summer, sat me down and pierced mine with one of those old fashioned guns. It hurt. 

      A couple of years ago, I went with my mom to get hers re-pierced. Only then she told me the story of my sister's ear piercing and how she couldn't go through all the harassing and tantrums again. I thought it was funny that my sister had been that aggressive to cause such pre-emptive panic since she was always the good, well behaved one.

      I never wear earrings and find if I do, my ears react really quickly/badly.

      I think it's fine to pierce a baby's ears, they won't remember it and you could save stress later in life!

      I have longish, thickish curly hair-- not quite as much as Braggie's but I still have a lot of it. I also live in Texas and exercise daily, so I wash this mess every day. Unless I'm really sick, which thankfully hasn't happened in months.

      Quit being gross, Abbie.

      What will she say us with her hairwashing routine while the rest of her seems well washed and groomed?

      I have the same hair, thick and curly, just chin lenght. In the summer I wash it 3 times a week, the rest of the year 2 times. Washing, combing and grooming takes 5 minutes, since I don't use a blow dryer. If she has the time to shower daily, washing her hair doesn't take more time than the rest of the shower.
