It never fails, I read comments from cat owners and invariably after describing the attributes of their feline friends, a comment is made about how much like a dog their cat is. And they seem proud of this fact!
Why is it desirable for a cat to be like a dog? If I wanted my pet to be like a dog, I would have adopted a DOG. But I didn't! I chose cats! I love my cats, love how they act, (well, for the most part ) how they react to me.
You never hear a dog owner say that his dog is "just like a cat"!
Sorry, it just makes me nutty.
