I's Fickle

I've discovered that I really am a fickle bastard. Never thought it would be, but it is.

You know that I was house-sitting for Ma this weekend. What I didn't mention was the fact that I not only was sitting house, but cats. Yes, you read that right. CATS.
"But you hate cats!"
No, I just can't stand them. Actually, should there be no more small cats upon the face of this earth, I would not weep. Not a tear. Well, if a certain two were gone, I might be a bit shook up...

My mother has two Rag doll cats. These cats think they are dogs... they were following me all over the place, just hanging out with me. She's had the oldest one for awhile now, and he's always been pretty cool, but she's got a "kitten" (this thing is bigger than most full grown cats) that's only a few months old, and was a riot. I've gotta admit... I really like that cat. Hell, I like them both.

After spending a couple of days with them being my buddies, I started to rethink this "I hate cats" view of mine. Perhaps they really ain't that bad, and I've been misguided, being a dog person and all. I found myself seeing cats in commercials and thinking, "Wow... that really is a pretty cat. The colorings are awesome!" I about made myself sick... That came to an end last night.

When I got home last night, I realized I was being duped. As I pulled up to the garage, I could smell the cat piss from the feral f*%ckers that run in our neighbourhood. That's with the windows UP, and still outside of the garage!!! When I got the car parked, and got out, my eyes were watering from the ammonia stench. Any good that my visit with those two cats had built up was gone in that moment.

I still like those two cats, and a fairly cool cat named Fred... maybe one or two more. But let me make it clear to you; the only cat blogging that's going to be done here is bitching about the worthless critters. And the only cat pics you will ever see will be of amusing roadkills...

'Course, that could change.

Ha! the irony... I too was "cat sitting" this weekend (and dog sitting for the neighbors).

And I discovered that really, I don't *hate* cats, it's the litterbox I can't stand. Yuck.

I'll stick with fur friends of the canine variety, thanks.

I like cats... most animals... but I'm allergic to them. So I stay away. Seems they know this little thing by instinct and come running to me. Glad you found some that don't drive you nuts.

Aw man, I LOVE cats! Especially the crunchy ones...with Tobasco.

This is why I own a dog. A Dog who finds small furry animals; small and therefor insignigant and worthy of being a fine after dinner snack.

Cats are a delicacy for him.

I never have had a love for the feline species. However, the one 'Necksis drug home, had grown on me. It shits in her room, so, hey, that's her gig. The dogs, hell, they're more like big brothers. They'll stick there faces in where they don't belong, and this little dude will flat out wack 'em. That little cat, he takes no shit.

The dogs don't either, but I assume that havin' you nose ripped by claws can become a pain in the nose...
