But, cats arn't the best creature to live with, as they have a free spirit and cannot be tied down without causing problems. That same cat of my childhood was an outdoor cat and was only around when she felt like getting petted, never there to give me affection. I need to get attention, I go nuts with out it. House acts tend to be nutty and destroy things, because they want to be outside.
Cats, I can't live with them, I can't seem to keep away from them.
The worst part of this is that this can be literally and metaphoricaly applied to at least one of my past girlfriends.
