All points of view should be heard! Unlike humans, we animals listen to all ideas.
With that in mind, this post features the feline point-of-view as expressed by my house mate, Oreo. My interview was a question and answer session. Some of his wisdom is expressed below.
Sandy Q. – What is your defense for those people who say cats are lazy?
Oreo A. – That’s completely unfounded. Our species just really enjoys doing nothing.
Sandy Q. – Do you believe that personality and attitude are impossible to divide?
Oreo A. – Ridiculous. My personality is who I am. My Attitude depends on many things: What food you put in my bowl, how many tummy rubs I get a day, if you have a broom in your hand, if you pet the dog more than me … I could go on.
Sandy Q. – Do you take responsibility for opinions you express?
Oreo A. – Absolutely. But … not for your lack of intelligence to understand them. Gee, maybe I should run for office.
Sandy Q. – How do you settle bitter arguments you have with others?
Oreo A. – Its a 4 step process. 1) I suggest a cooling off period. 2) I insist we stay silent and hold our breath for 20 minutes. 3) I cheat. 4) I call for a hearse.
Sandy Q. – Do you believe that we can read each others minds?
Oreo A. – No. If that were true I’d be slapped and punched much more often.
Sandy Q. – Are you in agreement that we carnivorous folks should change our eating habits because we kill living things?
Oreo A. – Hell no. Aren’t plants alive? Whats that leave? Rocks? Give me a break.
Sandy Q. – Do you doubt that humans are the mentally superior species on earth?
Oreo A. – Yes. Proof in one word answers. Bush. Clinton. Obama. Ryan. Pelosi. Romney. Want more?
Sandy Q. – Do you have a suggestion to create more world peace?
Oreo A. – Just as we animals are subject to … forced neutering. Less humans, more peace.
So speaketh the feline sage.
