    Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.

    •  They're the best companion animals (1+ / 0-)

      I can imagine.  Funny, bright, interactive in the extreme, and so much who they are!  I had to learn about parrots in the wild before I could live with them in harmony.  Much of what seems like irritating behavior or random noise is an outgrowth of life in the canopy or life as a colony breeder/ground feeder.  I have both types, very different personalities, very different levels of independence/bonding behaviors and needs.  

      Pudge and I became best friends when I got it that he was driven to defend himself from threats, no matter how I perceived my actions.  It's how he sees things that matters.  I only get bit now when I'm not observing him carefully, watching his body language, or if I accidentally hurt him somehow.  I bumped a delicate new tail feather during a bath and got NAILED.  Of course.

      He learned to say "I love you"  from my daughter and me.  He uses it appropriately (as a seductive way to get what he wants or just if he thinks I'm sad and down.)  How can you not be entranced by such amazing fellow creatures?

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
