    Actually, many cats enjoy canteloupe for some reason (from anecdotal experience). Cats cannot taste sweet things however.

    My mom's parrot decided it was his favorite food and asks for it constantly. Little monster.

    I think cats are actually much manlier creatures than dogs. Think about it: independent, self-sufficient loners who want to do things their way and like to be in control of their environment as much as possible. Their social ties are less deep, though the few bonds they do form tend to be very strong. Dogs: constantly social, they need attention and time alone just makes them sort of depressed. They need frequent reassurance, they have large circles of friends, and they generally play better with others. Think of it this way: assuming they were both able to use and communicate with it, do you think your dog or your cat would spend more time on the phone?
    dogs are considered masculine not because they act like human men, but for their being good companions to men. cats are not. you're just anthropomorphizing. real men don't expect their dogs to understand them and don't treat them like they are human babies or dog versions of James Dean. it's a human-animal symbiosis that can't be found with cats. how do people interact with cats? the cat ignores or abuses them and they develop stronger feelings for the cat. that is feminine behavior on the part of the human. with dogs, there's a gregarious and active kind of socializing that makes the owner behave in a masculine way - proud, confident, and physical. Do I have a cat? Hell no, never will.

    The Prophet liked cats and so do I.

    Here's Squeaky getting older like me:

    She's the last of my inside cats. Our block loves cats, and they are spoiled ( with many outside cats that belong to "the block" ). Some people get the outside cats fixed, and there is competition over who can feed them best. I've said this before in this thread. But if you try to give them something healthy like Science Diet, someone else one ups you and turns them to Fancy Feast. The cats sleep and enjoy it. Would be a great New Yorker cartoon.

    This sounds like rationalizing.

    What are you going to feed him when he steals your girlfriend?

    Why do cats hate you? If you call leaning against my legs and purring, or laying down next to me when I'm sitting on the couch and purring abuse or beign ignored, then yeah, my wife's cats abuse and ignore me constantly.

    I think you just lack the charisma for a cat to find you worth noticing. Just saying.
