Cats, I like them, but I would never own one.

What i like about cats is that they are sometimes cute. i say sometimes because not all cats look cute. what i don't like about them is their fur falling off their body easily when you touch them. I would never touch a cat when i am wearing a black clothes because my attire will end up like a fur coat afterwards. there is another kind of cat that i would like to be my pet, a tiger. i am just facinated with the orange stripes on a tigers body. i think it's a beautiful art to behold. one of my dreams is to have a trained baby tiger as my pet. But i have a doubt that a tiger would be tamed or trained to become a pet. you see, tigers belong in the jungles, forest, and other wild places. they prey on other animals. if i stop just one tiger to do its job in the ecosystem, then i am creating an imbalance in the world. besides owning one means risking my life of being eaten.

I own a cat. She was a little stray that we took in because she was hiding behind the tire of my van. We didn't mean to keep her... I agree with you about tigers! I just love them! The Bengal Tiger is my favorite! I have that tiger all over my house. . . posters, little statues, stuffed animals, tiger pillow, tiger blanket, tiger coffee cup. . .I'm not Native American, but if I were I am certain this would be my totem!

I'm like that when it comes to dogs. I love to look at and pet them, but not walk them. When I visit my sister, she tries to get me to walk her two large dogs. But cats are different. While they do shed hair and poop where they shouldn't sometimes, they are highly intelligent animals who love us unconditionally. All they need is love, attention, good food, water and a cozy place to sleep, and they're good. I now own three cats and love them dearly.
