Here's my Ellie dog. She is an Austrailian Shepard and I drove a 1000 miles one way to get her. She's way smarter than Lassie. My wife and I planned to make the trip a 'special' one if you know what I mean and we booked a nice room in a swank hotel and paid extra to have the puppy in the room. Ended up the dog had to sleep with me otherwise she whelped continuously and the clerks wanted to throw us out of the place. At 2AM she peed in the bed and started crying so we hit the road as they say. So much for a romantic weekend.

That's Ellie on the left and my wife Bev on the right just in case anybody wanted to know.

Awwww thank you so much everyone so far who've contributed to this thread, I'm having a feast here!

Tantybi, I learned so much fascinating stuff from your posts! I had always wondered, indeed, why cats always focus on me, when I'm precisely the one who doesn't pay attention to them.

Kirska, you were lucky to get that lovely dog! Who's the handsome man in the photo and is he single :wink:

Tweety, why does he yelp? For attention/sympathy?

I had a beautiful Lynx point Siamese girl named Samantha. She loved to listen to music. She would come upstairs with me when music was playing. Samantha started my lifetime love of Siamese cats. Among my current group of nine cats is another Lynx point, Prince. I just love those kinds of cats!

You have a Siamese???? :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
I love Siamese. I probably would have one if my Dad didn't hate them so much.
Instead I have fluffy ragdolls and rough moggies :lol:

Ragdolls are beautiful! I love moggies (mixed breeds) too! I have Siamese, tabbies, tortoiseshells and a Calico among my group of nine. Lynx points are a cross between tabbies and Siamese. In England, they are called Tabby points. My first Siamese, Samantha, lived to be 20. Prince and his striped brothers, Peter and Paul, will be 11 in May.

KingdomOfRats,

It definitely sounds as though your cat has AS traits. My Siamese, Samantha, used to love music and water. There is a book, "All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome." I'd like to read it.
