Cats on steroids, but most here seem to despise them. Especially FE;)

I'm not a lover of cats myself, but I know there are some on here who are. I am thinking of one of our female journalist types. Anyway even a non cat lover would think these are funny.

I have nothing against either of them in principle, and I've had dogs for most of my life, although not at present.

What gets me going is people who seem to think that cats are capable of higher thought processes, and possess special powers of some kind. I've lost count of the times I've heard people talk about their cats as if the animal was almost human.

Cats are animals, and will rapidly desert you, once you stop feeding them. Anyone who pretends that a cat is capable of 'loving' its owner is living in Lala land as far as I'm concerned. Cats want food and warmth, and as long as you provide both you'll have a contented animal, and that's that. It won't 'love' you at all. Humans are the ones doing the loving.

I'm no cat lover either although their antics can be funny as in your video link.

Unfortunately on many a night we get this kind of cat nuisance in our back garden - click here

Then they are not so funny!

'The special powers' aspect I agree with - but I have to assert that Cats and Dogs do think and work things out. One only has to see them at play, perticularly cats who will spend time with their play things 'setting up a game'
This is not to say they think on a high plane any more then say a cricket out fielder counciously indulges in trigonometry as he runs to the spot where a high ball will descend and gets his hand is place to pluck the ball from the air - but that is exactly what he is doing.
And so it is with predatory animals - they set the trap- and that takes thought.

What about love and affection
Can you see it here?

Much the same as people, then.
