Cat again [Sep. 28th, 2004|10:13 pm]
I am beginning to be nicer to my cat, actually caressing her some times, when she quite simply goes in my way and rolls on the floor so that I may caress her. Yup, she is quite aggressive like that. Cute.

I had some reflections on how many men actually think of women as pets. That works the other way around too I guess.

That is to say: too many relationships do not involve intellectual exchange from equal to equal. I think the ambition of too many is simply to live nicely with another person who will fulfil their emotional needs. But real exchange between humans is about much more than emotions and feelings.

This is why I had the strange thought that many people would be better off with a pet than with an human as a companion.

I am not really kidding.

Though of course reasoning on my perception of how people feel is quite a stupid thing to do. There is, and I am becoming aware of this more and more, a lot of hidden beauty in people.

People are very complex.

Quite amazingly so, and you never would guess.

You are completely right.
This is why men are "dog people", usually, while most women I know prefer cats to dogs.
A cat is independent, you never own a cat.
A dog sees itself as your beta, as your subordinate, and is completely pliable to your whims.
I am always more trusting of a cat person than a dog person...

I was looking at his user info. I like it. "I am male. I have a cat."

But I couldn't see any photos of his kitty. ;-(

(I will post photos of mine soon. Even though she is mine only for 4 months.)

"Even more remarkable - to me at least - than that is that people who know all this still treat their pets as if they were pets."

I love being petted ;-P

In fact, I don't really understand what it means to treat a pet as a pet instead of an honorabe sentient being... when I see how sentient beings are treated, I don't see how worse you could treat some"thing" you do not consider as a sentient being...

Unless you are alking about experimentation on animals, but those animals are not pets...

No, really, I think treating people as pets would actually be an improvement.

Which is why my first reaction was to say I love being petted. I would prefer being a pet sometime.
