Yet another argument for cats over dogs

To all the dog owners out there with dogs yarking obsessively in their yards and windows, lunging at anyone anywhere simply because they're so "friendly", and trying to generally eat strangers I say this: The problem here is not with the dog, but with the dog owner. Dogs are trainable. And the only way to love a dog is to train it properly, probably in a series of exhaustive courses that your dog will love but you won't.

It's called sacrifice. It's called the greater social good. It is caring.

On the other hand you can get a cat. Short of being wildly irresponsible, or a monster, you can do whatever you want as far as cat management goes and still freely claim to love your cat without being a liar. And no one will care. 

Least of all your cat.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
