They're all ugly. They're cats.

Oh great, my eyes are starting to get itchy just from that.

It was cute. For about the first 50-60 cats, then you wonder, don't they whittle it down to 10 finalists, like Miss America?

Cardinal, cats aren't only for girls.

Someone once sent me a snap showing a gun pointed at a kitten.
Lemme look for it. 8-!

Hmmm, why is it there is this strong gender association with cats = women; dogs = men? I think we see this best illustrated when looking at unmarried folks. I'll bet there's three times as many single women that have cats than single guys that do.

What is it about cats (apart from an unsavory premium they put on tidiness) that screams 'female'? :m: Or conversely what is it about dogs that screams 'male'?

Dogs are usually bigger. They bark, they "protect" the family, the can do rugged things like hunting with their masters.

Cats are aloof and mysterious with a mind of their own (which seems to be how many men see us women).

For the record, I have always owned a dog but have 3 cats, too.
