Most of you know that I am not overly fond of the dog that lives here. She was here when I arrived in October, 2002 and I have never warmed up to her. But can you blame me? She is ten times my size, and is not at all aware of the damage she could do to a small cat like me when she starts jumping around. Plus I was not raised around dogs, so I had no idea what she was when I first saw her. Surprisingly, in the years I have lived here, I have made it so that she is actually a little afraid of me because I hiss at her, and if she does not leave me alone, I’m not above taking a swipe at her.
All that said, I know some cats are just the opposite — they love dogs! Like my roommate Binga. She and the dog are best friends and they hang out together. Boodie is kind of scared of everything, but she would probably be indifferent to the dog if the dog didn’t chase her. (Part of it is Boodie’s fault for running — I hold my ground.)
So I decided to start a new poll: Are you a cat who likes dogs? Look to your right and scroll down a bit and you’ll find it. Vote. Let me know if you’re with me and are not a dog fan, or if you’re more of a dog lover, like Binga. Need I remind you — cats only! No humans and especially no dogs! That would be cheating.
