I’ve always considered myself a cat person. Dogs are okay, but they are way too clingy and energetic, and I don’t like being “their” person. Plus the begging is annoying and you can’t just push them off the kitchen table like the cat because they are bigger. And they’re on the floor, not the table.
I like being AROUND the cat, and usually cats like to be AROUND me. At one point we had three cats and I think my husband thought I was on the crazy cat lady route. We only have one right now and while I’m enjoying the break from the morning “feed me” meows, it does feel a little strange. I find that I love goats too, and for all the same reasons I love cats. They’re loyal, but not obsessive, funny, but not clowns, aloof with an air of mystery, yet clingy all at the same time.
