Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

My two cats are my family too...

My cats have given me a lot of joy and laughter.
Tigger is a brown tabby with light green eyes and J.J is black/white with golden eyes.
Tigger I adopted as an SPCA rescue cat. J.J I adopted from the animal shelter where I live.
Tigger, I swear he's got a motor in him. He's got to have the loudest purr I've ever heard.
J.J's purr is really unusual. He grunts and purrs at the same time.
Early in the morning they talk to each other. It's like they're saying. "you wake her up" "no. you wake her up"
I've seen them sit across from each other on my bedroom floor and just meow at each other. It's really funny.
They're both about six years old now and act like kittens.
They know when a can of tuna is being opened. As soon as I open the fridge door in the mornings, there they are. They like their cat treats too.
I feed them mostly dry food, a little tuna and cat treats. They do like some strange things. Tigger likes ginger ale and J.J likes froot loops. I don't let them eat a lot of people food. They have to take a sniff of everything I eat. Not a close sniff. Both of my cats are indoor cats. They have lots of room in my house. And they love to lounge on the window sills. I don't believe in declawing. They have a nice chunk of wood to scratch. They also play tag. I often watch them do this.
They sleep with me at night. I often go to sleep listening to them purr.
They are not just my pets, they're my family too.
I think I'm their pet.
They give me unconditional love and I love them too.

    I just don't know what I'd do without my babies. They are worthy of worship, cats that is. In ancient times, especially in Egypt, they were worshipped and their high role of "Guardians of the Underworld" was such an esteemed title that hurting any of these beautiful animals was punishable by death. The world was good back then. Any world that worships cats is indeed a good world.

    With panic attacks and dealt with a great deal of stress for the last five or so years of my life, my babies are everything to me. Like yours, mine have loud purring. One's a tabby and one's a bobcat breed, and he's so docile that an elephant could charge by and he'd just look. My tabby short-hair though, he is skittish (like me) and jumps at shadows. I've been moulded into being a very nervous person...

    You might wanna look into the Tuna Fish factor, vets say that it's really not good for the feline urinary tract and the acids in Tuna can cause health problems. Unless they're getting a great deal of other ingredients, like cranberry extract and milk it's probably not a good idea to feed cats too much tuna from a can. That's what vets say, anyway and I tend to go with their advice.

    Your cats sound purrfectly wonderful. We also have 2 cats.
    Samantha is 10 1/2 years old and black with a little white under her neck and belly.
    She is a skinny minnie, but she can out eat our other cat.
    Heratio is our newest member...he is just about 1 and he is part siamese and hymilain....he is crazy!
    Drives Sammy nuts; sleeps with me; but he is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time...very unique sleeping positions.
    He usually burries his head so far into the couch or chair, that you can't tell how he can even breathe.
    They are a joy!
    It is true what they say:" I was nobody until my cat adopted me."..lol
    Have a great day!

    Wonderful story! And one I can relate to. I have a 15 year old red and white cat. He ran away from his home six years ago, and though we found the family he belonged to they were okay for me to have him and didn't want him back. Can you believe it?? Nevertheless, he has, of course, been ruling the house ever since.
    After all: dogs have owners, cats have personnel.
