Cats seem so fond of computers in front of the screen is their seat, they walk all over the keyboard such fun when they hit that 'delete'! They think we humans are servants to pander to their slightest whim. They can't resist empty boxes they see one and have to get in. They like to trip up their owners, just love to get under our feet, then bring a mouse with it's head off and expect that we'll think it's a treat Dogs growl and bark at intruders, the mailman and squirrels they chase, but they are frightened of thunder, no bravery then, not a trace. They drool when food's on the table they're faithful and know their own place, but sniff at other dogs' bottoms then slobber all over your face! Both cats and dogs are so precious and here is my personal view, a cat may love on it's own terms, a dog's life revolves around you.

@jaboUK I don't mind cats, but I gravitate more towards dogs. They are just so much more affectionate in my mind.

@jabouk My that’s a lot of responses you have. Let me add another — I have a spare cat if you want one, but don’t tell my wife I said so.

@jaboUK Certainly they do bring a lot of joy in our lives, just looking at the picture in post made me feel so nice just imagine how would it feel to have the moment in reality. Your poem is worth every word it says

@jaboUK Well, he doesn't bark. But he is a character. He can be very needy and his life definitely revolves around me. The other one is as fickle as can be ... very much her own terms for everything!

Wow! beautiful poem or should i say beautiful heart. I think the love towards cat and dog is the reason you have created a beautiful version of poem. and yes i agree cat think we are servants and they are the queens or kings of the house, oh not only the house the neighbour, they have their area divided. but i have to say my dog is cute little baby. even he doesn't cross my cat. he has agreed to have peace and not to fight for the kingship. I love them both. thanks
