Cat-tastic

I received an email from Lissa T., a zombie from Cincinnati, Ohio. Lissa wanted to let me know that since she died her cat is her only friend other than her little sister Tracy is her cat Gumball. After she died Lissa was no longer allowed to stay in her family's house, but her parents let her stay in a sheet metal tool shed at the edge of their property. Apparently Gumball likes to visit Lissa on the nights he gets locked outside. She said that in January and February Gumball liked to be wrapped in a blanket and sleep in her lap, but now that it is getting warmer she'd rather play.

So it appears that cats are not inherently prejudiced against zombies. It may well be that Gamera is just a jerk.

All the names in this post are changed except for Gamera's, because "Tracy" would be in major trouble if her parents knew that she was letting "Lissa" in the house to watch TV, use the computer, play Wii, etc. with her when they weren't home.

Gumball was the best I could come up with, sorry.

Does anyone else have any zombie-loving (or hating) animal stories?

no animal troubles here, but then again im not dead. theres a little deadpan humor for ya! hardy har har...anywho, do you think there would be a reason for animals being repulsed by the undead? maybe they know something we dont, i mean they seem to know other stuff like when a storm is coming, so what if they can sense something about the undead that we cant see? just thinking out loud, or typing thoughts or whatever floats your boat.

a friend of mine is "living impaired" though she just likes being called a zombie, (and frankly i see nothing wrong in being called a zomebie...but im not dead so i wouldnt know...) anyway, her parents are very supportive of her and she lives near me so whenever she comes outside, my dog will literally try to tear her apart. (i asked her if it hurt and she said...kind of slowly...that i hurt like hell

alot of my friends have cats, and they hate their owners.
but when i got my cat, Fang, he never was hateful or anything...though he does like to bite me alot.

Keira said...

Well i have two dogs and the one loves my DB friend he is always with her no matter what and then my other dog cant stand her i dont get it but hay its good that one of my dogs like her

Jamie said...

I bet the reason some animals freak out around DB kids is because DB kids, from what I've heard, do not sweat. Animals like dogs and cats are used to picking up emotional states and scents and stuff from sweat, right? Maybe some of them just get unnerved by the lack of smell in a moving, sound-emitting thing. Kind of like how the vast majority of them also freak out around vacuum cleaners when you turn them on. I have a pet skunk that once freaked out and stomped (which is how they threaten things before the tail-lift that they do before they spray) at a table that we had put on end between one of his circuits around the house and the next one. Heh.

That, or some of them really are just jerks.

Tommy Williams said...

Bless the fallen--he bites you, and isn't hateful? How does Fang show the love?

Fugitive Queen, Jamie--interesting theories--although I still like the "just a jerk" one the most.

Pet skunk?

my cat can be mean sometimes he will pee on all my stuff all the time then he will go and be as sweet as pie i dont get it

Fae said...

my cat and dog both love me and everyone they meet except for my grandma (bcuz she smells like IcyHot and it's very disgusting. i think i'd prefer keeping my nose under my armpit after gym, but that's just me) but my pets do hate each other. the other day they got into a hissing/growling fight and knocked over a cup of chalk. not a fun clean up, i must say. i punished the both of them, i was so mad. why cant they just get along? my cat does the bullying tho. so, i understand ur problem with ur cat. they're so tempermental. pleh.

bless_the_fallen said...

naw, hes just a kitten, and teething...on me lol.
alot of times after he tries to attack me he'll curl up on my lap and purr.

Tommy Williams said...

Fae maybe your cat and dog are fighting over you. Nice image re: your grandma, btw.

hayley said...

my dog ,tater, loves to chew on people's wrist. idk why but he loves to just sit by you and chew on your wrist. but if another dog like... licks you or something and you don't wash your hands he'll eventually end up biting you. he's a pit-bull/boxer mix so it hurts cause he's so bigg = [

carrie said...

my dog will make me do pet tricks and then bite me and he's chow and husky so he's a bit big that thing hates me

Camilla Price said...

My cat's are either idiots, or really don't care about me, because they act the same way they did before I died.
Which is kind of sad because the black one see's you and then runs. Which always happened to me. Even though I'm probably the sweetest to her.

Minerva Rose said...

My cat Coco [[Ohmygod, I used her real name!]] likes sitting on my gaming [[D&D and VTM]] books all day, and those are some really expensive bookage. She likes torturing our family. O-o

My "living impaired" friend and her cat Georgie live in the nearby woods around my house in Ohio. Twice a week I got out there to check on them. My "living impaired" friend's parents left when she died. They have no idea that she is now a "zombie". Nor does she want them to know. She would rather live in the wilderness than live with once abusive parents...

I know dogs aren't Zombie (1/3 zombie) prejudice, I have 3.

I think my cats (I have 6 of them, 4 are kittens about 6 months old) would like zombies. They are very friendly and aren't afraid to climb all over you if you let them. They are all black with long fur and green or yellow eyes except Darling, one of the grown up cats, who is a dark calico. My kittens are named as follows: Elf, Hobbit (because they look so much alike and I thought of Elf first), Joker (he looks so mischievious), and Night. Their mother, who is also black, is named Midnight. Not orginal I know, but I didn't name her.

My cat is an attention whore .
It dislikes sharing the spot light..one time I found an injured bird and tried to help it . My cat Nalla scratched at the bird determined to get at it so I thought , her scratching made me drop the bird but she didn't go for the bird like I thought she would instead she peered at my hand and did that cat move .
but i hear that a pet will act according to there masters feelings....

My cats and dogs like me, but the cats seem to hate me ex boy friend (he's a grim reaper, not a human). But they also like my best guy friend (also not human, he happens to be a demon, not a joke). But I don't know any living impaired people but I don't think the would mind. My dads a arch angel, my moms a witch, my 1st sis is a vampire, my other sis is a monkey, and I'm a trad. Messed up right?

My cats and dogs don't mind my friends (which I'm not sure are human). But I don't think that they've met any zombies but I think that they would just treat them like normal people, they don't really care.
