why I like dogs better
Most of the time anyway. I don't like the concept of animals defacating in my house. Then again you don't have to walk cats but truthfully, walking Gryphon Madison and Chloe is about the only time in the day when I get to relax. Except when a cat is chilling under a car next to the sidewalk and Chloe and Madison lunge at it, jerking me back to consciousness from whatever I was plotting or daydreaming about.
So the moral of the story? Animal-love definitely is not a cakewalk all the time, when you have an animal, you sign on for the duration in my book. There is no dropping off an aging animal at the SPCA that you are tired of seeing throw up on your rugs. You take the unconditional love and affection they give and in return you take care of their (usually) simple needs. A lot simpler than with children, as the animals never grow into teenagers and tell you to go f@#$ yourself. I'll take cleaning the catbox any day over that.
