I like some cats. Some of them I just can't stand. I've got a cool Siamese, and a 13 year old-3 legged pit bull. They're buddies, and also my bench mascots, lol. The cat likes to play with my small hobby brush I use for dusting interior parts though! And I can never find it.

Her name is Cuda.
And the cat's name is Smallblock.
LOL, not a Mopar family at all.

Thanks man.
I'll hurry, not trying to hijack your thread.
She got hit by a car in front of my Grandpa's farm at highway speeds, 65 to 70! The JERK didn't even stop either. Half the family, including 3 of my 4 kids saw it happen. She's been without it for 6, almost 7 years now, but does incredible. Up n down stairs and everything. We are VERY blessed to still have her.

Right on man.
Yeah I'm tellin ya. To tell you how much nonsense it is though that some people say that pits are ALL mean and viscous, that it's the breed and not the dog. We all thought she was gone for sure. My grandpa and I took the truck over to pick her up, and she was still. I called her name, and she came to and got up. MOST animals will be somewhat aggressive when they're hurt really bad. People too, often times. She let my grandpa, and the vet both pick her up, and stayed calm the whole time. She has been raised around a very large family. Other dogs, cats, birds, a guinea pig. She's just a good example of the kind of dog that you can have if you just show it love and affection. They get a horrible rap because of people who treat them poorly, and inhumanely.

that whole "pits are bad dogs" thing is BS!! it all depends on how you raise them, my buddy Vince has 2 pits, and "shadow" is my buddy, she loves me to death......she is such a sweet dog, when i go over there she gets up on the couch with me. and when we fight, and she knows not to bite hard, shes alot of fun! shes a big baby!........ now if you would come in the house in a threating manner, she would rip your face off! shes very protective.....

Youre absolutely right about that. They are a very good judge of character. They know when there's a threat around. Very loyal, loving companions. I'm gonna hit the sack. Didn't get anything done today buildwise. MIGHT have tomorrow off. And if I do I'll be at the bench all day.
Have a good one man.
Corey

We had a beautiful male pit wander up on our doorstep a while back so we took him in and got him all checked out. We all loved him a bunch and named him Max, but poor Max needed more space and exercise then what we could provide for him, so we had to give him up to another family. He really was an awesome dog. He was about 60 lbs and thought he was my lap dog. =p

Nice work on this build Bryan. I like your cat too. Just be sure he doesn't use your model box as a litter box ! I have a couple of cats and one is a normal acting cat but the other is like a puppy dog and follows me around the house even if I go to the bathroom.
