I love cats. There are so few animals that can match the cat's beauty, power, and grace. Nobody can own a cat. It is the cat who really chooses his pet. With his coat of many colors, shapes, and patterns. His yellow eyes gleem in the night, searching for that mouse. What's that he hears in the dark? A squeak! He can smell it. And he can hear it! He spots it hiding in the grass. The cat gets ready. Slowly, he stalks the mouse. When he nears it, he freezes. Not a single muscle moves. All except for the tail. Suddenly, he pounces! Success. The cat is the king of the pet world. He does whatever he pleases. He listens to no one. He can sleep where ever he wants. Unlike dogs, who are governed by the human, the cat will govern only himself. Only those lucky humans will be lucky enough to win a cat's love and affection. And when a cat finds love in you, he is all yours. Whether to warm you during cold nights, to cuddle with you when you are blue, when the cat finds his home with you, its until death do him part. The cat can be a clown, a friend, a therapist, child, and playmate. Any other thoughts?
