Confession: I do not like cats

A lot of people don’t know this, but it’s true. I really, really cannot stand them. I’m not allergic. I just don’t like them. I don’t like the way they look at you. Or the way they spring up on stuff. Or the way they smell. I can’t go into someone’s house if they have cats. In some cases I can’t even be around people at work who have cats at home, because I can smell the cat smell on them.

Dogs I’m not crazy about either. Basically I don’t want any kind of animal in my house or hanging out with me. Gerbils, hamsters, whatever. Not even fish. But cats? Cats are on a whole different level. Every time I see one of these stories about cats taking over a house, or some old crazy lady with 100 cats in her house, I almost want to vomit.

There. I said it.
