    More Than Owner & Pet

     
    They say some peoples' pets show who they are. Others say it's not just the type of pet, but how owners choose to interact with them as well.

    So let's analyze how this picture describes me: tired, uninvolved and maybe even a little lazy.

    Sure, every person has those qualities depending on the time of day or the type of day- ahem Sunday, anyone? However, I like to think I have the opposite qualities most of the time. I'm one motivated individual. I also remain active for a large part of my day, becoming very impatient after I have to sit for long periods of time, and I enjoy being very outgoing with random people other than friends.

    How do these compare with my pet cat who sleeps next to me? My cat is funny and cute. Just the sight of her sleeping next to me for a mid-day nap is one that shows how outgoing she is for a cat. As most people usually think, cats are mostly lazy, smart, independent and boring individuals. But she is only two out of those four characteristics. What people can't see from this picture are the memories I have of her crouching behind walls, waiting for family members to walk by so she can jump out at them. Or the other memories of her ears being pressed down to her back as she goes nuts-o over birds outside the window.

    The most important thing for people to always remember is that pictures can speak one-thousand words. But the perspective of those words are multiple and varying. So while some may see my cat and I as lazy bums on a Saturday afternoon, others may see the truth: that we are possibly the most interestingly funny and refreshing people -yes, I called her a person- you've ever seen.
