… let me make this perfectly clear; cats are not pets. They are vicious apex predators that crap in the house, shred your furniture, vomit up hairballs on your bedding, and urinate on your bath towels. They kill smaller weaker animals and leave the corpses for you to find as gentle reminders or how vicious and evil they are.
A cat will never save your child when it falls down a well or drag your listless body from a burning building. Hell, they won’t even fetch or come when they are called, but they will sit on your chest while you sleep and slowly crush you.
