can i have a cat but not be 'into' cats.


Like im not dressing mine up or taking him for leash walks. Hes basically a friendly houseplant.

I'm pretty sure my cat has gotten me laid several times. The cuteness makes the girls less nervous after ive lured them to the apartment.

Dogs were bred specifically to love us. Dogs that didnt take to humans were usually drowned. The "love" is hardwired into their brain and only systematic extreme amounts of torture from bad owners can break it. Its shallow and meaningless, like having a broken little gimp following you around.

Cats and humans came together for a mutually beneficial exchange and love and companionship arises from that. I wouldnt want a person to blindly love me. Id want a person to realize we make eachother happy for our personalities (or huge tits) and the love come from there.

this is really only half the truth b/c the first dogs were wolves who benefited greatly from living with humans. they love us because we've bred the individuals who tolerated humans the most true, but it's unclear which species too the first step.

dogs are the second most widespread and well, succesful animal on this planet.

Why do they look so cat like? Convergent evolution I'm guessing? The Wiki says they've been isolated in Madagascar for 20 million years.

I swear it look like the first successful genetically engineered combination of a cat and a dog.

Cats are designed by God to be the ultimate killing machine but he hosed up and made them 5 pounds in weight and covered them in fuzzy fur.

They're giant south American rodents related to guinea pigs and basically everything eats them down there. You can technically keep them as pets but they are social and swim a lot so you need a running water source (they poo poo in the water) and a bunch of them so only exotic animal breeders keep them.
