CATS AND DOGS….I know it’s

CATS AND DOGS….I know it’s an old schtick that’s been mined dry, but I always get a laugh out of the whole cat people vs. dog people thing. Especially when it’s sincere, as in this post from Bill Sjostrom:

I am a dog person. I do not get cats. I do not mean that I object to them. It is just that I do not understand their appeal. All they seem to do is lie around all day.

Ah, but he’s forgetting other things. Like: they demand attention whenever it suits them and then just wander off when they’re satisfied, they love their food bowls more than their owners, and they ruin the lower reaches of Christmas trees.

So what’s not to like?
