I have two cats, Dusty (grey medium-length hair female) and InkSpot (or just Spot, solid black shorthair male). Both are about 13 years old, but they *HATE* each other because they were adopted separately (Spot was trapped as a stray). We try to keep both cats indoors, but occasionally one will escape for a couple of hours.

Spot thinks he is a dog. He growls whenever someone walks up the driveway. He carefully looks around the sofa when we open the door. Then, when he decides it is safe, he runs out purring and makes a nuisance of himself being too affectionate. If friends come over, he knows them and doesn't growl, but he will leave the room, then come back regularly to check up on the guests and get a good butt scratching. Spot loves to go through the door, in or out, "just because he can". What is funny, though, is he will beg to go out and escape if the door opens for just an instant. But he never goes more than 5 meters from the door and he comes in to use the litter box -- he likes it better than the great outdoors. :-( We have lots of cat toys, but Spot prefers my 6-year-old son's toys best -- they share -- it's so cute.

Dusty is a real bitch of a cat -- foul tempered. But she has some *really strange* behavior. Dusty dislikes all wet cat food except tuna; she prefers dry crunchies. Dusty LOVES chopped cabbage, and will beg for it whenever she can. We always give her some for dinner if we are having it. Dusty never drinks from her water dish unless she really has too; she prefers the shower. She will get into the shower with the water running to get a drink, getting soaked in the process. Dusty is turned on by the smell of chlorine bleach. When we spray cleaner on the inside of the shower, and close the shower doors to keep the cats out, Dusty rolls around on the floor of the bathroom, purring wildly, for up to an hour. It's crazy.

I won't even describe what laser pointer make these cats do.... :-)
