Science has discovered what everybody always knew:
Dogs are better than cats.
I feel compelled to quote P.J. O'Rourke: "It's easy to understand why the cat has eclipsed the dog as modern America's favorite pet. People like pets to possess the same qualities they do. Cats are irresponsible and recognize no authority, yet are completely dependent on others for their material needs. Cats cannot be made to do anything useful. Cats are mean for the fun of it. In fact, cats possess so many of the same qualities as some people (expensive girlfriends, for instance) that it’s often hard to tell the people and the cats apart."
My daughter's cat is biting my foot right now. Why? Maybe it is bored. My daughter would do something similar, though not actually the same, if she was bored. My daughter is telling me this is cute; a sign of affection. Next time I will buy her fish. I suspect if I bought her a dog it would also annoy me.
I did step on a mouse's head one morning last week. I don't know where the body went, though I can guess. Yes, I was barefoot, as it was morning. Yes, it was an unpleasant experience. However, we knew we had mice and we finally have proof that the Antigone is earning her keep.
Science just proved what Kipling told us more beautifully.
