I know there is a long-standing debate (which will never be resolved) about whether a dog or a cat is “better” or more desirable as a pet. I would be on the side of the dog-lovers if the discussion was strictly about unending love, affection and loyalty, but I also find cats fascinating.
Some cats are quite cuddly and affectionate, but most of them certainly put out what we as humans perceive as an elitist attitude, showing affection on their terms, when and where they want. Even when they are in the mood to show some affection, it usually ends abruptly when they decide to end the cuddle-fest with a quick clawing or bite!
A fickle and persnickity lot they are, but that makes them all the more interesting.
