Hey, Bear, some people might like being batted around by a monster-size cat. In fact, some people say that they take drugs to achieve this feeling. What bothers some guys about cats is that they aren't instantly in charge of them. Cats are truly loveable creatures; I bet that, if we had to decide on either a world without cats or a world without dogs, the latter would be chosen.
a cliche-ish argument for cats. cats stink, they piss everywhere if they get angry, and forget how to use their litterboxes. They don't respond to requests and commands, not because they're independent, but because they're not smart enough to understand you.
If I wanted to have something around the house that I poured money into and received affection and companionship in return for it only when the receipient felt like it, I'd take on a second wife.......
