As long as I can remember, there has always been at least one cat in the house- they are practically fixtures. Fixtures with fur and an attitude, of course.
Cats are, without question, my favorite domesticated pets. They are clean and soft with beautiful markings, and they all have unique personalities. When I go to someone else's house and I see a cat peacefully napping or lurking around a corner I'm always like:
Dogs are fine pets, but I wouldn't choose to own one at this point. I just can't get behind the whole house training-walking-barking-jumping-licking thing. And also I get really freaked out when dogs growl at me.
Of course, there are downsides to owning cats as well. They can have terrible attitudes...
Also, doing normal things like reading sometimes become complicated when there's a cat around.
I think I just kind of ruined the point I was trying to make.
I'm going to be done now.
Have a great rest of your Labor Day weekend!
