I like to have conversations with my pets. Tonight I had this conversation with the Little Dog …
I just want you to know that while I like dogs … a lot, I prefer cats more.
Dogs are kind of like, I love you the way you are, you are perfect, don’t change. Which is great in an unconditional love kind of way, don’t get me wrong, but cats are like, Is that the best you can do?
Cats motivate me to be a better person, to try harder.
Dogs? I can just wear my sweatpants and they won’t even notice. That’s a beautiful thing, but you know, I like to be on my toes, be motivated to doll up a bit? Get it?
Don’t get me wrong, unconditional love in amazing, but I like being motivated to be a better person, even though it makes zero difference to a cat.
So if I had to choose between cats forever or dogs forever, I choose cats, because I want to be the best person I can.
