I Love Cats

But I couldn't eat a whole one.

(JOKE! Just a joke, I promise.)

I really am fond of cats as friends. I was neglected a fair bit in my early life- before Tim and Mandy got me from the RSPCA- but I did live with a cat and we got on well. I got on better with the cat than the other dog. These days I get to socialise with people and dogs a lot but not with cats. Today, I was calm on the lead saying hello to this one. Often, when I see a cat, I, as Tim and Mandy put it, I "go bananas." To the observer and possibly the cat, it may appear that I might want to attack the cat but nothing could be further from the truth. I am desperate to say g'day and play with the cat. I only want to make a new friend. So remember; things aren't always as they seem. Someone who you perceive to be your foe could really be your friend.

Some people and dogs are anti-cats or "don't get" cats. They are different from us but that doesn't mean we can't share a lot with them. Just look at the adorable Miss Kitty. We don't have to be a person-dog or a cat-dog, we can enjoy the company of all animals. I found a nice water-dragon lizard to play with on the walk this morning. I think I might have scared him a bit as he ran off and hid. Occasionally, I am misunderstood.

Life is great when you enjoy all creatures great and small.

Aww... Miss Kitty would blush if she could. :-)

Cats are like people...OK....cats are people. Love'em as you find them and don't try to make them do what you want to do. And then everything is just fine.

I would do the same excited and only want to play but probably scare the poor kitty away.

Oh I do agree with that last line. And it sounds like Lee has it down with cats...i personally love 'em :)

Ok, we're going to get Gus to come and read this! He doesn't understand that we only want to play with him....and maybe taste him, just a little bit...ha, just kidding!

Good to see you're all cat lovers.

I think I would like a cat that lived with me, but sometimes outside cats can be scary.
