Kitties and Woofies, I have a question for you if you care to let me know. Your pawrents too.
Long time ago when mom was casting about looking for another kitty to love and care for after finally not grieving quite so hard for Hopping John, she mentioned her quest to a friend. That friend had two female woofies I might add.
Mom said she had always had boy cats and so she was setting about the neighborhood hoping for some kitten families. One such family was found across the street! Mom's friend stressed that mom should get a girl cat. She said that girl cats tended to stay in their established territories, that the territories were smaller than with boy cats. AND she said that the girl cats were just kinda girly in a cat sort of way. The boy cats are loving of course as are the girl cats but that girl cats did tend to stick closer to home.
Mom DID get a girl cat, Robin, and Robin was truly a cat among cats. She is the girl that mom mentioned a few times that helped mom rear her three sons, who nursed the whole family through illnesses, and who was the true matriarch here. Robin was the last cat allowed outside. Everyone else is strictly indoor.
The poll I mentioned? Mom and I want to know if you kitties and your pawrents think girl cats tend to be more homebodies than boy cats..the territory thing I mean. Robin had a territory of three houses in either direction and she came home when called. We also want to know if you think girl cats have female personalities distinct from the boy cats personalities?
