I'm the Mayor of my own Crazy Town. Sheriff, too.
Dogs. That's how society has progressed, the genetic manipulation of wolves into docile house pets who show affection.Maybe this constant distraction from your kitty is due to Toxoplasmosis. Or--Gasp--Maybe you have the dreaded Cat Scratch Fever that Ted Nugent tried to warn us about 30 years ago! AAAAHHHHHH!
Being slaves to our cats' every need, whim and desire IS the height of civilization. At least according to cats.
I love that you've waited so long to get a cat and you really enjoy your time with her :)
Ah yes, isn't it fun working out around a cat? Nothing beats trying to do a situp with a cat curling up on your chest, rubbing happily against your face.
I love my kitty, but she always wants to hang out with me at the WORST times... when I'm blogging, when I'm trying to watch something, etc. Like... excuse me feline. Where were you when I was bored and lonely an hour ago?
My entire house is literally arranged for the pets. Dog needs something to lie on in front of the window? Sure! I don't need that otteman for me feet, now way. Cats want to be able to look out one of the windows at the back of the house? No problem! I'll just squeeze an ugly cat tree into my bedroom. Sheesh.
My cat is half on my lap and half on my laptop. One of us is very comfortable.
I can't have a cat because my husband is allergic, so I tell him that he has to be my kitty, but he's not a very good replacement. He can't purr, he doesn't sit on my lap (he'd squash me), and he won't play with string. All that he does reliably is shed.
What cracks me up the most is that you said the "invention" of cats. Mine all know when it's bedtime. They all have a spot. My favorite is when Roxie sleeps on my back. Best feeling ever.
