Tonight, it's all about cats. Cats--you either love 'em or you hate 'em. (Almost no one is indifferent to them!)
And I happen to love them. All of them. Male or female, long-haired or short-haired, exotic or commonplace. And I found this totally awesome website called "Cats in Sinks" (follow link in title). The whole purpose of this website is to display random pictures of cats...in sinks and/or basins. Everytime you refresh the page, you get a different cat. Isn't that great!!
Most of the people who say they hate cats really don't hate cats, they hate the aloofness and independence of cats. They feel that any animal which we invite into our lives should be appropriately meek, docile, and submissive in order to show its gratitude for our care and attention. People who love cats value the spirit of an animal which has learned to behave in a somewhat civilised fashion, but which refuses to relinquish all of its personality, instincts, and independence.
Okay, so here's a picture of my cat. "Cat" (yes, that's his name) is a 4 year old Balinese cat. He's not much into sinks, but he LOVES boxes--even if he's too big for them, as you can see. And he "nests" in Wal-Mart bags by scooping them all under him, when there are several on the floor, so he can lay down on them. He's a good cat. A little weird, but still a good cat.
