spent with cats
is never wasted."
Ron and I are great lovers of cats. We have often characterized ourselves as "cat people who have dogs". Some people might find it hard to believe that cats and dogs (especially such large dogs as mastiffs) can live harmoniously together. We find that our dogs have developed a great respect for and tenderness towards our cats. We also find that having the cats around helps to teach our dogs as puppies how to behave around smaller, vulnerable creatures.
Since we keep our kitties indoors as housecats, they have all grown to be very people oriented, affectionate, and not detached or aloof in the least. They look to us for their food and care, love and attention. We are their "universe". People who think that cats are only concerned with themselves haven't spent time with our cats!
