    I love how independent they are. How wild some can be. How when you bring one home they automatically think everything in your place belongs to them. And how they hate almost everything, well a good number do. Your thoughts about cats?

    I love and hate cats. The hate part, it makes me remember when I made steaks for dinner, one of the last times if not the last time I had steaks for dinner, and my cat very quickly reached up and tried to take my steak. She succeeded in pulling it off my plate, and having it drop on the floor, but my shouts made her take off running to quick to claim her prize. My dog was very happy about the incident though, as she got to eat the steak. And I hope she rubbed in my cat's face how delicious and awesome it was! I love them, because even if their motives are selfish, it is impossible to be lonely if you have a cat because when they want attention you will give it to them. They will not take no for an answer.

    Once I fed my cat steak scraps. The next morning she wanted more but there was no more. So after she sat at her food dish for awhile she wanted out, without eating her dry food, so I let her. I look out the kitchen window 5 minutes later and she had a squrial (I know it's misspelled but my spell check is horrible). I went outside to throw it in the grass, I had a plastic bag over my hand, and guess what? She was chewing on it's head.

    Another reason I love cats, is there was a mouse problem when I moved into my house. Key emphasis on "was." My cat, she is awesome she will camp out in front of their hiding spots for days at a time. She knows they are there, and she will have them for dinner (or lunch or breakfast). I had a cat who was so awesome at hunting she would patrol my yard, as well as the surrounding fields, from the roof of my house. She would eye anything to kill, spot her prey from a mile, I watched her dive off my roof to catch birds in mid-flight, and she even brought me a baby bunny one Easter Sunday. She also did some really weird crap, where one night I was with a friend running her paper route, and her dad called to say he saw one of my cats dead in the road, and me and my friend went to my house (we weren't too far way anyways) and could find nothing. The next night, she "greeted" my friend's dad by winking at him. Then sadly the next night she was hit by a car.:( On a positive note, even though people say cats do not know their names, I have one cat that does know her name, and even is she is in another room, just by saying 'Lilith," (when I first met this cat, how she got her name was I was thinking of different names, and when I thought of "Lilith," she began to stare at me) she will run into the room you are in, and expect something in return for summoning her. Lilith is not the cat who tried to steal my steak. That was her daughter, Shadow. Shadow, you do not ignore. If she wants to be petted, you will pet her. Even if you try to make it look as if you are busy, she knows you have that second hand that isn't doing anything, and she does expect you to use that hand to pet her.

    I prefer dogs. They all love me (often more than they do their "owners"), I can grunt and moan to them (which makes them love me more), and I've not met a single dog who doesn't approach me, give me lickings, and make very quick friends with me. Even the dogs who bark at me, they give me that friendly approach and look, and then bark at me because that is what they are supposed to do. But even hunters with their loyal dogs complain that their dogs love me more than they do them.

    Cats are the Aspies of the pet world.
    Dogs are the neurotypical social butterflies.

    Lo! I wasn't the first to realize this.....

    My cat Sara is a Communist. I held up my Little Red book to her and she rubbed face on it.

    Our cat, Lucifer (Lucy) Stinknagel, is a welfare queen.
    She's very entitled, but won't catch mice.

    All cats feel entitled. However my cat hunted often and was very good at it. Mainly because she likes to kill and torture. I honestly feel that she was a tiger in her former life or she was suppose to be a tiger but someone messed up and made her a cat instead.

    Isn't that how every cat is? At least mine realize the "equal obligation to work," and they know if they want me to give them the food and water that my money provides for, they had better do their cat thing and provide a rodent-free home. Which they do. And because they do their labor, I do mine to provide them with a supply of water, a constant and reliable source of food when the fields yield little, and a clean litter box to use. But if I see or hear a mouse in my house, I will tell them to go catch dinner. And they do. And I'd rather not think of the bones from the mice I've seen Lilith swallow whole. It was kinda horror-movie-ish one night I let Lilith in, she brought a small mouse in, she paraded it around in front of her kittens, and then tossed the mouse in the air, the mouse gave it's final shriek, and Lilith caught the mouse and swallowed it whole. She then went and got another mouse, trapped it, and brought her kittens to it to fight over it.

    Our visiting cat, White Kitty, eats food I set out, but returns the favors.
    He (she?) regularly leaves mice, chipmunks, & pieces thereof at our door.
    (We must look first, before stepping outside, lest we squish a gift.)

    Dogs are too sociable & high maintenance.
    Even cats aren't quite aloof enuf for me.

    Their independence I can see, but what makes you say they hate everything?
