What's with cats?

Monday, December 15, 2008







I'm not much of a cat person, although they seem to love me!

I must admit they're great when you're curled up on the couch watching a movie, but apart from that I really don't have much time for them.

Here's some reasons why...









Cats are incredibly selfish
They bring you unwanted gifts (Ie, decapitated rabbits, mice, rats, cute little birds, endangered moreporks; the list goes on...)
I'm sure it's impossible to train them
They jump onto tables and steal food
They won't go for walks with you
They demand attention and retaliate if they don't get it immediately

Dogs on the other hand are the complete opposite.

They are loyal
You can play rugby & soccer with them (if they're real dogs that is - not chihuahuas, poodles, etc)
They're good for exercise and taking on walks
You can train them to do tricks and stuff
They can find and save people in dangerous situations
They help police find drugs and catch criminals

In fact, they're so cool they have even have a dog art museum in St. Louis, Missouri (USA) where they keep all the famous paintings that have been made by various artists throughout the years. And just in case you want to have your pooch's portrait painted, they maintain a registry of dog artists.

Reminds me of our Christian walk. There are days when it's easy to be loyal & obedient to God. When we want to walk closely beside Him. When we can't wait to help people, tell them about Jesus and so effectively save them from dangerous situations. But then human nature kicks in and our selfishness shows through. We get tired, demanding and claw at people. We don't want to obey but go off and do our own thing. We bring what we think is a great offering before the Lord, but in His eyes it looks like a decapitated rabbit! Maybe this Christmas, we'll remember the real reason for season and show a little of his love and compassion to others. Thanks for the reminder God!

Dogs smell
They don't bury their poo... they poo everywhere, and eat it.
Did I mention, they smell?

Symon said...

Point taken. But, I bet your cat got blamed when the culprit was your brother ;-)

Dog's don't wash themselves... they drool, return to their vomit (I've read that somewhere), and do other disgusting things which I will not polute your post mentioning.

Cats 2. Dogs 1

Cats are more spiritual ;-D

Ok.. Fess-up time. We never had a dog growing up. Dad hates them, I've had 3 bad experiences with them as a kid (biting, chasing, and ;-&), and I had a week off work due to finger badly bitten by Paisley Jade's dog when we were going out. Maybe I need prayer... or a puppy.

Me thinks Symon needs to conquer his fear of dogs ;)

We had 15 cats once. Two of them had kittens - it was totally awesome! One male cat attacked my uncle once and ripped open his pants!!!! Now hows that for a cat being loyal to their owner?

Cats 3 Dogs 1
