An adorable little domestic animal of the feline persuasion, which "cat" is usually referred to.
Can be obnoxious sometimes, but mainly in a playful/cute way. Intelligent, independent, demure, cuddly... and viscious fighters should a fight build up. A mainly carnivorous animal, cats keep your home free of pesky animals, and especially rodents.
Birds, for better or worse, won't build their nests near your house.
As adorable as they are, cats aren't as sweet and gentle as they may seem... they look rather annoyed when they hear themselves called "pookums", "widdle cutums" and other similar names.
But it is fun watching them bat at insects or dangling strings, attacking your blanket-covered toes in the morning, one or more kitties curled up on the couch...
Taffy, a big orange tabby, and Nite (night), a smaller "tuxedo" cat, are cuddle up in their basket... suddenly an owner comes in.
Owner: "He-wo! Good morning my widdle diddymses!"
The cats look up, rather indignant.
Owner: "Did my widdle poi tats sweep o tay, did 'em? Did 'em? How's my widdle kitty pusses?"
Taffy and Nite look at each other and puke simultaneously.
Taffy: This is one disturbed girl, isn't she?
Nite: Darn straight. Somebody tell her to shut up.
