Worked for me. I don’t need no stinkin’ man I got me a baby kitty…..Ozzy. Let’s see, what are the advantages? Snuggles on my neck every night, doesn’t go out “catting” around, always happy to see me, and never leaves the toilet seat up for starters. Clean as a whistle, doesn’t leave dirty clothes hanging everywhere, doesn’t take up much room in the bed. Doesn’t have any bad habits, like smoking, drinking, or doing drugs. Likes reality TV shows and Animal Planet. Gives you hugs and kisses whenever you want.
Any disadvantages? Sure, as in any relationship, you have to take the bad with the good. Ozzy expects food and water in his bowl at regular intervals, and expects me to clean his waste every day. Also uses me as a springboard for his nightly gymnastics. Chews up all my strings that dangle. Occasionally has bad breath. Gets a little carried away with smurf bites. Tongues a little raspy on the face. Likes to try and trip me. And, yes, he is an animal, not a real man, who does have an occasional use. There are obviously a few men out there who could trump my cat, but they are just
delusions illusions of reality for me, lol.
But overall? For unconditional love? Please, no contest. A cuddly kitten or puppy will win every time.
