Re: OT.. cat post

It's been my experience (observation-wise) that people who don't like
and/or trust cats have never been around them. My father is dreadfully
allergic, but still likes them. It's impossible for anyone to spend time
around these wondrous creatures w/out being totally fascinated by them.

Just my opinion of course!!
