Do You Think I Hate Cats?

Updated on March 16, 2011

Do I really hare cats? I don't think hate is a good word to describe my feelings towards felines.Hate is too strong. I'll go with dislike. I'm an animal lover and animals gravitate to me. So my thing with cats is disturbing.

First is you can't train a cat. I applaud their independence, but you have to conform at little to fit into society. Cats just don't. You can train elephants, tigers, lions even birds, but not the cat.

Cats will eat small furry animals. Even if it's part of the family. Imagine telling your little child the cat ate the hamster. Heartbreaking stuff. If that's not bad enough, they will bring you a rodent of your own to munch on. Try and take you dog's bone away.

They bury their poo. Now that's not a bad thing, but does it have to be in the wrong spot? Flower beds and sandboxes should be off limits. At least if a dog poos in the wrong place, he'll get rid of the evidence in a better way. He'll recycle and eat it. Think about that the next time your dog licks you.

Cats have claws that they just have to use. The side of the furniture, the curtains, cats don't care. Why they will even come into your lap and bury their claws into your leg. Worse part is I know they are smiling the whole time.

Then there is the appearance. They look sneaky and act the same way. One minute they are lovey dovey, the next minute you're at the Emergency room bleeding from everywhere.I'd prefer my pet to be a little more predicable.

Last, but not least. Cats can't catch a Frisbee. Won't even try. Maybe they can' t. They should be good at it. They jump high and always land on their feet, but alas, they stink at it. However, I will continue in my efforts to train a cat to catch a Frisbee. If successful, you see me doing the talk show circuit.
