5. 7 actually. My two older ones are out of the frame.

Eightball has lived with cats since he was about 8 weeks old. All of my cats grew up with dogs too.

16. It's wonderful seeing compatible cats and dogs together.

More people need to realize under proper conditions they can and do relate very well, with caring people to help them.

7. I absolutely love cats, have had cats all my life, but one dog

poochy, who lived with me for about 10 years garnered ALL my love.

When he died I cried for two days, and still morn his death.

I missed him more than my mother when she died.

8. You have my empathy on that one.

I was always more of a dog person, but inherited a couple of cats from my mother in law when she passed. Then one followed us home from the dog park...then a couple of ferals had a litter in our neighborhood. I went out and bought a trap for the strays. Fortunately there's a voucher program with the Humane Society in our area. I have been getting them fixed at no charge. I always feel awful when they pass on, but I'm so glad to have them!

10. Aw thanks Packman!

I actually have 2 dogs and 7 cats right now. Our German Shepherd passed away last year. The other dog looks like a fluffy bear.

12. My Dad had a dog when I moved here many years ago with my two cats.

Lady, the JRT, was a typical terrier, but quickly learned not to bother my cats. A couple of cats came and went in the intervening years, and Dad died, too. Then, my sister moved here about 3 years ago with her 3 cats. Every time we left the house, we always announced "Lady is in charge." She was such a great dog and a great cat protector. She died about this time last year and we miss her sweet presence every day. We will never get another young dog because we are of advanced age ourselves, though we might foster or adopt a senior dog, esp. if they love cats.

Your family is beautiful. Belly rubs to Eightball for being such a good supervisor!

14. Oh Eightball does love his kitties.

Three of them are still very young at only 7 months old. We caught them all when they were only 4 weeks old. He would cry to be let in the room to play with them. At first they would hiss and all run and hide, but then they would slowly come out as curiosity got the better of them. Now they all love on him. I'm sure Lady is up there playing with my Nikki and the late Cisco. My wife and I have decided that when we get older we would foster animals. I don't want to leave this earth and leave behind and critters without a plan for them too.

15. Eightball sounds like a lovely fellow.

I have a soft spot for the cat-lovin' dogs.
