Cats and Dogs (we still like cats more)I'm driving with Eli 13.10. We've been discussing the various merits of cats versus dogs.
"Can you image explaining why we have pets to aliens?" I asked. "We have dogs as pets because they're loyal, and they protect us, and all they want to do is serve us. Plus, what they can do is incredible. A dog that can act as a companion and service animal for the blind, or a dog that can smell when a diabetic needs insulin? Dogs are amazing! The list could go on and on."
"Then," Eli said, "we have cats."
"Hmm," I said.
"Well," he said.
"They purr," I said.
"And we're done here," he said.
