I am really sad that so many people do not know anything about cats. People who say they don't like them are people who have never had a kitten and raised/socialized it to adulthood. Cats are among the most useful creatures we humans have on this earth...and in many, many ways. They are absolutely AMAZING little creatures. I grew up with only dogs all my life and, in fact, only got my first cat 12 years ago. I didn't want one then but a miracle happened in my life and I ended up keeping a tiny, feral, 2 week old kitten we named Kiki. Now, my husband and I have 6 cats!!! All three of our grown children have cats and my parents who thought they hated cats, now, also have 5. When a person learns about the nature and intelligence and self-reliance and loyalty of cats, they become insanely in love with these special animals. I wish I could tell EVERYONE how incredible cats are. There are good reasons for why they are now the worlds most favorite pet!
