The best thing about cats is:

Their all-round furry cuteness/cuddliness
The fact that they are mini tigers
Their independence
The fact that they are not dogs
Their total disregard of what you want them to do
Keeping you warm in an armchair/bed
Smell of their breath
Mouse-catching ability
Bionic hearing
Another option I will tell you about

Lol...I agree with all the options !...but felt obliged...nay bullied by deano to vote with regard to their total disregard !...This is all part of their ability to own the owner. My training is coming along very well and I am happy to be dominated by my cat !.. [;D]

Thanks EP !!

Best thing is the cat next door. Very friendly, comes over to be petted and stroked, but is self cleaning and self feeding.

Here she is in a slightly more dignified pose.

She's quite the "babe magnet" too  [;)]

Mind you, she's not to be trusted. She met a Yorkshire Terrier while we were walking recently. All was going well until Shona sussed out the Yorkie, decided it was probably a rat, then proceeded to grab it by the scruff of the neck. If I hadn't hauled her off the Yorkie PDQ, I'm pretty sure she would have broken its neck with a couple of swift shakes. She's not very big, but she's built like a tank.

We should never forget that dogs are really slightly domesticated wolves.

Geezer, you know all the old jokes but only obliquely refer to them. Is this the one...

I met a bloke the other day who castrates camels. I asked him how does he do this. He said he gets two bricks and slams them together about the camel's gonads. I asked him "Oh heck, doesn't that hurt?". He replied "Nah! Well, only if you get your thumb in the way as you slam the bricks".

Is that the one? :-)

Yes - at least a variation of that. The purpose of "bricking" is to ensure that the camel is full of water so it will make it to the next oasis. You wait until the camel is drinking at the water hole, then sneak up behind it and brick it.

The punch line is the same.
