I will never be a cat person. Their nature is too aloof, too indulgent, too cruel, and too selfish for my taste. But I do respect these little beasts. It takes an aloof, indulgent, cruel and selfish animal to do the work they do around here - which is to kill as many mice and barn rats as possible. Before I had cats I had mice in the house and rats in the barn. Now I rarely have either. A lot less voles, sparrows, and baby squirrels too! So I appreciate cats and take care of my boys, Boghadair and Yeti, but they remain employees. I think they are content with the arrangement.
