Huh. From an e-mail:
I’ve never understood why women love cats. Cats are independent, they don’t listen, they don’t come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, come home and expect to be fed and stroked, then want to be left alone and sleep. In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat. Hmmm doesn’t sound like my cat entirely. Mind you, I have a great little cat.
