What are cats?
Cats are nature's way of saying "I want to reward you. I will give something for you to pet until you get hand cramps, and in return, you have to give all your attention plus more, feed, pamper, and clean up after for 14 years."
As said in a Dilbert comic,"Petting is for the benefit of the cat, not your hand."
So why bother?
Allow me to waste space so I can add a picture.
OK. Done. Let's see what the pic is.
What? What is this? I CAN'T RESIST! D'AWWWWWWWW!!!!! :3 :3 :3 :3
Now I must go and buy 50 cats. The plan worked. :3
Wait. ONE OF THEM JUST CRABBED ON MY CARPET.
