The Cat's Meow


I've never been very much of a cat fan. Not sure why...maybe cause I grew up with dogs and I always been more partial to the warmer, more "I love you no matter what" nature of dogs. They're always excited to see you, want to be played with and are just so loving. Compare that to the I could take you or leave you, or better yet, "why do you insist on boring me with your presence?" attitude of a lot of cats. The choice was an easy one in my book.

In fact, my friend's cat scratched my leg all up last week at our Cinco de Mayo fete and I'm still feeling the effects of the attack. OK well maybe that's a bit dramatic. It doesn't really hurt anymore but there was a huge amount of blood pouring down my leg after the event. Vi.cious!!!

In any case, I think I'm going to put my feelings aside and give cats another chance. It's not their fault that they're solitary creatures and I'm a love me, love me, love me type of girl. Sammy & Trooper (my friend's cats) I love you just the way you are. Get used to seeing a lot more of me in the future :)

Is it bad that I don't like cats either? I am definitely a dog person. Thank you for your heartfelt comment. I am so sorry for your best friend loss and sick friend. I will keep her in my thoughts.

Hope all is well with you!!!

Hahaha - I had to laugh at this post because I totally agree with you about cats. Yet, somehow I found a tiny homeless cat outside on a cold day a year ago and brought her home with me. Now, she (Louise) has my heart! But, she's nothing like any other cat I've ever met. She's more like a dog, than a cat...She actually plays fetch!! ;)

You would have loved my cat... he hated being alone, he followed me everywhere, even slept on my pillow right by my head and my favourite part about him... he played fetch with me!!!! He was so cute!

I always said he was like a dog!
Hope your weekend went well!!!

yeah, i kinda cannot decide, if i like cats more tyhan dogs or is it the other way around, because i really think it changes with every pretty cat & dog that i see :)

BUT, is it just me, or could Brigitte Bardot hair (darker version, not the blond one) be having a fierce comeback? plus some cat's eyes.

i wouldn't mind, that's for sure :)

I love cats! I had one that had spent its 'childhood' with a big dog so it thought it was a dog, too - that was really cute. But not all cats are nice...

Thanks so much for checking out my blog and following!! Talk to you again soon.

Haha, your first comments are so funny and yet so very true! I have a gorgeous kitty cat at home in the UK (my parents are looking after her) but I know exactly what you mean!
