Are you a dog or cat person?
I think that anything in excess isn’t a good thing. Twenty stray cats in one apartment complex seems like an awful lot to me. Look on the bright side, though, at least you’ll never have to worry about mice or rats!
The Persian cat looks a bit worse for wear, doesn’t she? She must be sweltering in that long coat in the summer. Is it usual for cats to have eyes which are a different colour? Have you held the cat to see that one is yellow and the other grey?
The black cat might just be the bad apple of the bunch. People often feel intimidated by animals with claws and teeth, no matter what size. In my experience with dogs, it is always the small ones who seem to have a chip on their shoulder about something. Don’t you think that small dogs are more aggressive than large ones?
The reason there are so many cats must be because of the ‘cat mothers’. Surely they are encouraging more and more cats to come to your complex by making baths for them and feeding them. I can imagine the frustration of the other residents who are being kept up all night by the cats making a racket outside. There are some cats in my neighbourhood which make loud noises like babies crying. It’s very disturbing. Have other residents voiced their concerns about the growing numbers of cats to the ‘cat mothers’?
Some people say that you are either a dog person or a cat person. Personally, I prefer dogs to cats. Dogs are more playful and loyal, whereas cats seem a bit aloof and snobbish to me. How about you? Are you a dog or cat person?
