Re: Cats, good god y'all, what are they good for?
I was bludgeoned into having a cat, against my better judgement as although I like cats its the damage to the songbird/garden bird populations that I hate. The birds are under considerable pressure and cats can tip the balance right over the cliff. I'd prefer the birds everytime frankly.(I have a blackbird that sits on my boot while I am gardening, waiting for the worms...no jokes please)
That apart..our Daisy, otherwise known as "Catastrophic", or "The Disaster Monkey" is a delightful creature most of the time and we enjoy great play fights together. She is independent, but waits for me to get home and rushes out to greet me..usually bats me with a paw and rushes off into the shrubbery again.
I much prefer dogs (aka **** machines), but with both of us out at work its not on really to have one.
