    1. Two words: vacuum cleaner. The cat avoids it like the plague.

    2. A friend's Yorkie was terrified of being locked in his little room
    one night. He didn't mind being put in there provided the door
    was left open -- that way he knew he wasn't trapped. But one
    night when they shut the door the dog actually chewed a hole
    in the door. (I like to think the family was smart enough to get
    up at 3 a.m. after hearing hours of scratching and investigate,
    but you never know.)

    ^^ It could've been that there was a hole in it already, from one
    of those door-stopper things. All I know is how they told me the story.

    I once had a purebred Great Dane, Chester the Molester. Stupidest dog EVER! We had a large dog run we would leave him in when we went to work. It was made out of 2x4's and chicken wire and we would have to replace 2 or 3 2x4's weekly because the dumbass would chew through them. And the 2x4's were wrapped in chickenwire.

    I hated that dog, I hate all big stupid dogs that won't obey, my ex finally got rid of him when he chased him literally for 3 miles before he caught the idiot.

    First and last time I ever bought a purebred dog.

    Didn't Chester get injured from chewing or scratching at the chicken wires? (bloody gums or something...)

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    My Siamese cross Bryn is afraid of a lot of things: loud noises, strangers, other animals, especially dogs, but we have bears, coyotes and raccoons here, too. He hates the vacuum cleaner. Both cats, but especially Bryn, are terrified of children and always hide when our granddaughters come over or the doorbell rings. They will stay there for hours, and can't even be tempted out by food.

    Apparently, it's not that hard if they're real determined. My friend had a little male poodle, he was a stud. They brought a female over for him one day and they put her in the bathroom in the basement while they were talking and figuring everything out. I guess she figured time was a wastin' because she put a hole into the door about the size of a dinner plate. It didn't go all the way through but she wasn't in there that long.

    They can be because they're intelligent and high strung, but he's not afraid of everything, just some things. He absolutely HATES children tho -- it's actually kind of embarrassing because our grandkids are starting to take it personally!

    I've had so little acquaintance with siamese cats. The only one I can remember was when I was about 10, and everyone warned me not to pet it because it hated everyone. They're just mysterious to me. And then there's this:



    We are Siamese if you please
    We are Siamese if you don't please
    We are from a residence of Siam
    There is no finer cat than I am

    Do you see that thing swimming round and round
    Maybe we can reach on in and make it drown
    If we sneaking up upon it carefully
    There will be head for you and a tail for me

    We are Siamese if you please
    We are Siamese if you don't please
    Now we're looking over our new domisile
    If we like we stay for maybe quite a while

    Meow.......here kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty

    Do you hear what I hear a baby cry
    Where we finding baby there's milk near by
    And if we look in baby buggy there could be
    Plenty of milk for you and also some for me

    We are Siamese if you please
    We are Siamese if you don't please
    Now we're looking over our new domisile
    If we like we stay for maybe quite a while

    We are Siamese if you please
    We are Siamese if you don't please
    We are from a residence of Siam
    There is no finer cat than I am

    There is no finer cat than I am

    There are no finer cats than we am

    Well, they ARE the best and they know it, so they tend to be a little haughty. Bryn lets us know when he's pleased and when things simply aren't up to snuff. But he is incredibly affectionate and good-natured -- he is a cross, after all!

    They are quite dog-like in nature and get very bonded to their humans. Most do not like to be alone, and they like to be quite warm -- must be their Thai heritage.

    I think it'd be easier to list the things Chesney ISN'T scared of. He's really skittish for some reason. If you rustle a bag or crisp packet loudly he jumps or if you turn the hoover on, open a door suddenly, drop something, raise your voice. He's even scared of our pet cockatiel, all she has to do is waddle towards him and he backs away.

    He is scared of most strange men in general, like the window cleaner, he shakes in the corner when he comes, I think its because he's quite boisterous and clatters his ladders alot. Chesney also gets scared of people wearing hats, even if its me or someone else who he knows really well, maybe he doesn't recognise us??
    No man is worth your tears, but once you find one that is, he won't make you cry

    None of my animals are really afraid of anything. Even Cinderella, the bunny, is laid back. However, the cats make it VERY obvious when they don't like something (like when I clip their nails - they hiss!).

    My Jake hates the hoover (ahem sorry - vacuum cleaner) He goes beserk when it's switched on, barks like a mad dog and lifts the head of the hoover up with his mouth. It's really annoying.

    He likes fireworks thogh. Strange dog

    Storms and other people!
    I felt so sorry for her this past Thursday! We had severe weather that day, and our weather radio sounds this really obnoxious noise for a warning/watch. It doesn't turn off until you push the button to hear it. I bet my poor kitty had to listen to that awful sound for hours!!! When I got home she was in the closet (her fave hiding place) and it took me forever to coax her out!
    She is not a 'people cat' so when we have company she heads for higher ground (her closet)
    THE EASIEST WAY OUT IS THROUGH....
