What do Poles really think about cats?

The dog is man's best friend ...

And that's the problem because that friend is very demanding on your time and attention when alive and gives you a major case of depression when he dies. Most people don't have 4000 laying around when that friend needs surgery. Some of those friends kill kids.

...but spends more than your cat.

Yes, she does. But it is a good reason for me to take pride in being able to provide my wife with the resources she deems necessary to take advantage of. Simply speaking, I have nothing against. :):):)

That is pure life. We will all die one day so there is no reason why we should make such a big deal about it. Our pets go first, then it is us who follow. Simple.

Simple.

Not really...We are supposed to die before our kids. When they die first, it's the worst that can happen to a parent. Many marriages do not survive this kind of stress.

To many people, a dog is like a child or better. In your statistical 80 years, you could have six dogs and six dog funerals. Ouch...No, thanks.

But pets are not kids. Nevertheless you can buy an Ara parrot as a pet. They live 120 years and more.

A large parrot is a lifelong responsibility. They're intelligent too and require a lot of care.

Normal people settle for a lifelong responsibility for their wives, kids, and themselves. Animals at home are a major PITA.

Yet millions have them and are very happy to do that.

But when a dog or another pet dies of old age, it is normal and people accept it as a due course of events in their life.

They live 120 years and more.

That is why we also have a tortoise which is going to outlive me - he is only about 20.

When a man gets pancreatic cancer, he has to accept it as just another way of ending his life - but I still don't want it.

Get a virtual pet. It will never die.

Full of the joys of spring....

But when a dog or another pet

And many fond memories. Families need pets. They're good companions for older people too.

A pet is a crutch. Good companions are other older people. Like your own or your friend's wife. Pets can't nag as well.

Or cats. They bring a lot of joy to older people. Make them feel needed.

...but add to the sedentary lifestyle that kills both the body and the spirit. I just read that walkers live 16 years longer.

the sedentary lifestyle

Says a guy sat at the computer! It's true that walking does help, as do intellectual interests, work (paid or voluntary) and human contact. Pets as well. And cats do seem to like to be the owners of older people.

Anyway, cats have long had a strong affinity to humans without ever being fully domesticated. And people like them.

I bike, walk, and pump every day. A couple of days ago, it was 45F and raining. I noticed that the dog owners were out but not smiling.

No. They die when the battery dies.

lifelong responsibility for their wives, kids, and themselves.

Exactly. And taking care of a pet greatly contributes to developing such a responsibility, already starting in childhood. Do you think people are naturally endowed with it?? :):)

And people like them.

Yes, I like cats for their independence. Dogs` subservience and obedience to their human masters is disgusting to me.

Finally, we agree on something important.

They die when the battery dies.

...but you at least don't see them suffer. Plus, you can put them inside your PC that's running on a UPS. And they will never pee on your couch.

Cats are only loyal to whoever is feeding them.

Dogs are " mans best friend"

Nothing worse than the smell of cat pi$$! I can tell in 2 seconds when I walk into a home if they own a cat. You cant get rid of that stench either, except total remodel.

Tell me about it! Way back in Poland, our cat pi$$ed on the way home and the whole train stunk like hell.

No, it didn`t. Unless you travelled on the Orient Express train through all Europe for a week or so. Sterilised cats` pee starts smelling after longer time. :):):)

Does yours have AIDS?
Think before you press POST.

No, it didn`t

You are exceeding your competency in this matter. I was there. You were not. We were on the train from Gdynia to Warsaw known as Torpeda.

What planet are you on? Cats sterilized in Poland in 1960?

Some cats do. Think before you post.

More like a yapping chihuahua than a cat.

penchant

I always thought that "penchant" is something you buy for your wife's bd. We would say you often lie...

Some cats do.

You mean there are gay cats? How do they get it? Cat to cat or gay guy to cat?
