A Bad Reputation
Cats in general seem to be portrayed in books and on TV as being bad. From killing the poor little mouse, to scaring the little kids at Halloween, to leaving scars on grandma's legs. These furry purry golden eyed quadrupeds don't really deserve this bad rap. 99 and 44/100 % of cats are tame, docile friendly, soft, warm, purring, and lovable. They have few needs: a warm place to sleep, a clean litter box, nutritious food, clean water, play time and a loving person to provide these basic needs. It's the absence of a loving person that make cats go awry. I suppose it's the same for people. But, what if a cat won't let you love it? What do you do? How do you get around that? I will tell you that it takes time, energy, compassion, understanding and money. The tales are endless about people winning over a cat. But I would like to note here that it is a lot easier to win over a cat than to win over a person.
