Cats, Dogs and Men!

In some weird scary way, I have come up with traits in cats and dogs which would compare to my ideal and not-so-ideal man respectively:

INDEPENDENCE: Cats have a life of their own. They don't want to do *everything* together. They play around the house with their toys, and they happily bask in the sun all alone. I get to do my own thing while they play. Dogs are demanding. As soon as you come home, they pounce on you. Their only form of play, is when you go out to the park and throw them a frisbee.

ASSERTIVENESS: Cats love to be pampered. But they don't need to be pampered all the time. Infact, they will let you know clearly when they need to be pampered. And if you don't pamper them, they will demand it. Dogs on the other hand, are a little wussy(no clue if that's a real word). They will wimper and look all puppy faced(aaah!), but will never put their foot down. They will bear the torture of 'not being pampered' cause they imagine thats what their master wants! *Boorrring!*

SELF-CONTROL: I can leave out 3 days worth of food when I go on a weekend trip and my cats will only eat what is required. Dogs on the other hand can eat a whole 15 lb bag of food in one sitting and kill themselves, if you keep pouring their bowl.

WELL-MANNERED: Cats never have to be litter trained or given a bath. They religiously spend hours cleaning themselves up to make their whites whiter and colors brighter. My 4-week old kitten, never once littered outside its box. Before he knew where he was, he knew where to potty! Dogs on the other hand, will get dirty as soon as you give them a bath and then will make it a point to roll over your new persian carpet. Ofcourse, never on purpose, just pure stupidity.

PREDICTABILITY: You never know what a cat is thinking. They love keeping you guessing, keeping you wanting more. They never let you have too much of them and that keeps your desires at peak. Dogs are too busy wanting to please. They will stand, sit, roll, shake hands at the twitch of your finger. They never go out of the box & once they learn the tricks you have taught them, they hardly ever surprise you.

This post is dedicated to my 2 beautiful kittie-kats.

Disclaimer: I love animals and have nothing against the canines.

    dogs trust their master to do the right thing, cats just do their own thing. consequently the former are trustworthy while the latter are self-absorbed.

    Zaph, maybe this lines up well with my pursuit of guys I shouldn't pursue! :)
