I have never been a fan of cats, no hatred towards them, I just don't care for a lazy "roommate". I have owned a Senegal parrot...never again, ho them buggahs are f-n noisy and mimic everything they here. For the moment my love is my Shiba Inu, Nani. She is the oldest breed of hunting dogs in Japan. Shiba (brush) Inu (dog). However, she has "cat-like" qualities, irony at it's best.
