Interesting theory. At one point I think I bought the rhetoric and TRIED to like cats more. I was going through a phase when I was confusing needing people to NEEDING people. (Yeah, that's only clear if you've had this discussion before. Some of you have, I suspect.)
I suppose one of the things that having these critters in my life taught me is that you can't expect a cat to BE a dog (or the other way around).
