It's required that you have cats if you're a homeowner. Why, you may ask? Well, the word MEOW is right in there. You're welcome. Good luck saying hoMEOWner or hoMEOWnership again without hearing that.

Before the pandemic struck and was not fortunate enough to work from home full time, I used to joke that, "If possession is 9/10ths the law, my cats must own mine, since they spend more time in (possession of) it than I do". As soon as I started working from home and it looked like it was going to be awhile, my cat announced that it was by virtue of the fact that MEOW is in the word that really gave them the claim to the home. I am, however, invited to stay and provide for their needs. Somehow I think that buying a house for my cats seems like a BWM decsion. The dogs are much more grateful.

So, let's have some fun (even at my expense, this IS the BWM forum after all):

Is possession 9/10ths the law?

Should we rename HoMEOWnership to correct the gross oversight?

Do the cats have ANY legal standing in this?

Is that before or after he realized that smoking might not be great for his lungs?

If I had a dollar each time my cat coughed up a hairball, I would have zero hairball-related dollars

I feel strangely compelled to agree completely and entirely, however that may just be the toxoplasmosis speaking.

That’s one pretty kitty!

My tortie girl always wants to go outside, but what with living semi-rural and not wanting the felines to be carried off by a raptor or any number of things that could harm them, I keep them indoors. On a few occasions she has managed to scoot outside and almost immediately she freaks the hell out. Hunkers down like what the actual gently caress this is one BIG rear end room!! Then she bolts back to the house and is content to stay inside for a few more weeks. My orange cat? Could have the door wide open and he’d sit on the inside of the threshold, nose up, eyes mostly closed, enjoying the smell-o-vision.
