Cats are Cute

Actually cats aren't that cute. Kittens are really cute, and are the subject of quintillions of videos and photos all over the world wide web. I saw one recently with a line of kittens 'dancing' to some inane tune about what to do with big fat butts and wiggling. Anyway, kittens starts with K not C, and I'm up to C in the A-Z Blogging Challenge of 2015.

At the risk of offending 50% of the population of the world, I need to say that not only do I not especially enjoy cat videos, but I don't think cats are that cute, nor do I even like them very much. Gasp!

I'm not a cat hater. In fact I apologized to any cat lovers in my class today when I used the expression 'there are many ways to skin a cat." I would never skin a cat one way, let alone in any other of the variety of ways by which it is allegedly possible to skin them. It's just that I don't find felines particularly satisfying as pets. Mice kill far as their performance as pets goes. Dogs too, despite their ability to be bloody annoying at times, are much better companion animals.

I'm just not comfortable with 
any animal which thinks it's better than me. Cats are just a little too lordly for my liking. They want life on their terms. Well don't we all? But seriously, here's a questions for any cat lovers who are still reading. Do you know who is the master and who is the slave in your human/feline relationship?

  1. I have no illusions that it's the cat around which the whole household revolves…but I love them nonetheless #suckerforpunishment :-)

  2. lol the cats rule here, no doubt about that. But a savannah is just like a dog, always in your face and wanting to play.

  3. Molly the Cat is the darling of our household. It's okay by me since she managed to create peace between the Mama and the Husband. That's a pretty good feat. :-)
