There’s a Thing About Cats

  • They’re dirty. They are probably the cleanest animals around. Knowing that some people give their cats baths, I asked the vet if I should bathe my cat. He said no, cats do a good job of keeping themselves clean.
  • Cats will suck the breath out of babies. You don’t really believe that old wives tale do you? Your cat might purr that baby to sleep, though.
  • Cats aren´t playful. Have you ever seen a cat bat a wadded-up piece of aluminum foil around the house? Probably not; you hate cats.
  • Cats aren´t smart. You don´t think so? Well, that cat got you to clean up the glass of water she shoved off the table.

How cats show love

Cats show love in many different ways; cat owners know this. I had a cat that would bring me a twig every time she came in from outside. One time, she brought me a live baby bunny and gently put it down at my feet. I loved that cat, but she got hit by a car. I no longer let cats that own me go outside. That was a hard lesson learned.

Don’t Mess with Cats; They’ll get even

As I said in the beginning, my brother is a reformed cat hater. When he was in his twenties, he decided to get a couple of cats to give them a try. Guys in their twenties aren’t that mature. One morning before going to work, he was vacuuming the carpet and thought it would be funny to chase the cats around the house with the vacuum. When he came home from work he discovered the cats had pooped on his vacuum.
