Dog people

I'm not a dog person. I think dogs are fine and friendly and all that. I've owned a dog and absolutely adored him. But dogs are time-consuming and smelly.

I much prefer cats. I love their independence and their dominant nature; their absolute acceptance of their superiority. According to David, my cat, Bridgit is very dog-like. She comes and tells me when she's hungry - usually every 10 minutes - and waits until I get up. Then she walks in heel position, checking on me constantly until we get to her bowl and I give her more food.

I can't see what's dog-like about that. She's not the one in heel position - I am.

She looks possessed with her eyes like that.

As you know I'm not a cat person. As a child we always had a dog and I love the companionship they provide, their loyalty. To me cats always have an agenda and always seem like they're hiding something :)

Hmmm, maybe I could write a horror story involving a manipulative cat, or something like a psychopathic Garfield.

What a great idea. It's that level of unknown control about cats that I like. I like knowing I'm not the most important person in their lives; they are. I like that they hide things from me and I have to discover them like layers of rock revealing the history of the world.

Cats definitely lend themselves to horror stories.

Have made some notes already to write something down the track.
