The old man liked cats and d*gs, but was a product of his generation and
upbringing. I like to think that with a different time, therapy, and a
lot of conditioning, he'd have made a really good cat slave.


My mother and father were totally stupid over cats and dogs
and just about every little living thing, including us. These
outwardly reserved and elegant looking people made
utter idiots of themselves in the presence of cats, dogs,
and babies, cooing and ahhing, speaking strange languages,
etc. Like me, they did not do so well with people all of the time.

How were your grand parents with small living things? It may have been
genetics, just passed a generation.

My idiot sister had a siamese mix named Bill after the cat in opus. The
only reason IS had her was because she was more scared of mice than
willing to do without a cat. I have concluded that I didn't get my cat
slave genes from my mother's side of the family (same mom, different
dads).

The old man liked cats and d*gs, but was a product of his generation and
upbringing. I like to think that with a different time, therapy, and a
lot of conditioning, he'd have made a really good cat slave.

My Mom was a softie for anything in need. We always had a menagerie.
We acquired, over the years...

Quite a few dogs (mutts, a Dobie, a great Dane, a Weimereiner, a Golden
- all rescued); umpteen cats; a raccoon; a duck, a thrush, a dove, a
parakeet, a rabbit, 6 or 7 mice, gerbils, hampsters, a guinea pig, a
snake, turtles, crayfish, crabs, a clam, tadpoles, frogs, toads,
lizards (a couple varieties), fish, seahorses, sea monkeys, and a pet
land snail. It was great as a kid - I lived with Doctor Doolittle.

That's probably why I have 7 companion animals now - including snakes
and a turtle.
