No, I’m not making a comment about the weather (though I could be….) but about actual cats and dogs. This has partly to do with the fact that I came across a pair of Retievers last night, and in all fairness they are one of the nicest breed of dog that you would ever hope to meet. I will admit, I’ve never come across a Retiever that wasn’t happy to see you, they always seem friendly and are one of my all time favourite breeds of dog. I would seriously consider having a Retiever as a pet.
Which makes it quite funny that a lot of my friends appear to be cat people…… which I don’t understand. To me, cats always give the impression that they are putting up with you, at least until someone comes up with a can-opener that a paw can use….. They often come and go as they please and actively seem to look down on you.
Whereas dogs seem to love you. They want to be with you. If they can be in the same room as you they will be, they always seem to be happy to see you. What’s more, you can head out and go walking with them. You’ll always have a walking companion. They can be used to guard the house (though probably not the Retiever…. they’ll just be pleased to see the burguler) and are nice. I like dogs…. They are companions….
So why do people like cats……???
And for a giggle, The University of Glamorgan has started a degree course in Astrobiology or the search for alien life….. I kid thee not…….
