Violet really enjoys sitting on the top of the machines and watching everyone play.

I love seeing these! My cats rarely hop up on the machines.

Wow - really?

My cat hears me hit the start button and comes running to "play".

People often wonder if cats climb up to high places so they can feel superior.

This is absurd.

Elevation does not affect our superiority.

When my cats hear the games powering up they usually vanish. I'd say its because of the subwoofers and loud noises but the siamese likes sitting on the sunfire sub in my office when its going.. Maybe when the games power up it means people are coming over lol.

My wife is 5'2". Her (lack of) elevation has absolutely NO affect on her superiority!

When I want the cats out of the basement I just turn on one of the machines and they run the hell out there. Scardy cats.

So I bought this pinball machine to *play*. But now it's impossible since Officer Carl Winslow refuses to let me do so now that he's found out that a shiny metal pinballs are under the glass and the sounds aren't that scary. I haven't been able to play a game since he figured out it's fun for him too. HOW DO YOU PEOPLE PLAY YOUR GAMES?!

Officer Carl Winslow...love it!

My game room is in my 2nd bedroom. I keep the door closed at all times so my 2 cats can't get in there. I won't let them anywhere near my machines.

So no pinball mirror blades for xmas but you did get them in your shiny new dishwasher.

My game room is in my 2nd bedroom. I keep the door closed at all times so my 2 cats can't get in there. I won't let them anywhere near my machines.

I just bought this house and it's rather small and quaint and I love it. There are no doors on the rooms except for the bedroom. The second bedroom was a kids' room so they took the doors off and put on saloon doors since it was their play area. The doors are in the basement so I have them, but really don't want to put them on since I live alone. The other four pins are in the basement so it's possible to keep the cat out but he whines when he's not included and that's more annoying I think.

And yeah. He's named Officer Carl Winslow. People love it when they know the reference. If they don't, they are just confused why he doesn't have a normal name like "kitty" because that's original.

Best mod ever created for any machine.........ever

I don't have a cat and now I want one just so I can get this mod.

She is always by my side.

I found this gal four months ago. She was a couple of months old and had been attacked. She lost one eye and is almost completely blind in the other which keeps her from getting atop the machines. She cost more than any two machines in my lineup and is the reason why there won't be a new pin anytime soon. This is her making sure the SoF PF goes back together correctly.

I wish I had more thumbs up to give you nerdygrrl.

#535 4 years ago

Thanks man. It's funny I've always thought of myself as a dog person, but this little one has completely changed my opinion on cats. It's crazy to think how far she has come. When I found her she was sitting in the rain and couldn't walk because she was too weak. Now she's running all over the place and is front and center when it's time for pin work.

#536 4 years ago

She just wants the glass off!

Maybe she can pal up with our "one eyed jack".
He is not really ours, but lives and hangs around our back yard deck 75% of the time.

Have to ask yourself, why the "Dog's Rule" thread is in the basement, while Cat's and Pinball have "Front Page" status Do I detect canine discrimination, hhmmmm

Quoted from RWH:

This is a cat's and pinball thread. I believe the dogs rule thread was not titled to revolve around them with pinball machines.
If it is related to pinball then it does not belong in the basement. If it does not relate to pinball then it does belong in the basement.

Quoted from RWH:

I suggest starting a thread named "Dogs and Pinball". There is plenty of love to go around for both cats and dogs.

Sir Isaac Newton wrote, "Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things."

So, no, you should not consider getting a dog.

What can we expect, a dog on a pinball machine chasing the ball? Climbing inside the coin door? The most I'd expect out of that thread is a dog taking a whiz on a leg

#545 4 years ago

Ha, my dog has learned that once the pins come on or a PF gets lifted it the no fun zone for her. She has taken to immediately going to the door and scratching to go out any time I start to tinker with the machines. At first it was amusing. Now it's just annoying. The cat, at least she tries to assist me by pulling screws out of their bins and stealing springs.
