I love animals, especially cats and dogs—I have both. Dogs look into you with a longing focus that says, “I’ll follow you anywhere.” “Do anything.” And do it all over again!”
Cats, on the other hand, look at you and seem to say, “Are you sure you want to stick your hand out there?” “I might lick it… but then again…maybe I’ll scratch it, instead.” “I’m not moving off this chair…you move!”
Cats rub against you–walk off…like they did you a favor.
Dogs attack, kill and eat— pronto.
Cats play, and torment their prey.
In the end, pet owners are very specific and vehement about their choices. You’re either a cat lady or a dog person. Lady or person…I guess I’m both. They love me in their own way. A little like us humans.
