Why do people own cats?
@I Are Lebo, they’re fluffy and do ridiculous things for your entertainment. ive always liked how you have to earn their affection, i love dogs but dogs’ll love anyone or anything. cats you gotta earn that shjt
@Hoban Washburne, with dogs you gotta earn discipline and obedience. With cats you straight up can’t get that most of the time.
I hear so many cat owners bitch and moan about their cats. They describe it quite similarly to an abusive relationship and it just never made sense to me. Sure, there’s some good cats, but by and large they’re friggin assholes.
@I Are Lebo, I’ve always liked cats because dogs are extremely needy and sometimes won’t leave you the fvck alone. I still love dogs immensely but I don’t think I could ever get one. Cats are quite respectful of personal space. Plus you can earn their respect. They do love their owners, it’s just that they don’t blindly love them like dogs do.
@I Are Lebo, ever hear about crazy cat lady but never of crazy dog lady? Why is that? Cats suck!
@I Are Lebo, not always true. Most cats have discipline by default. They clean themselves if they get dirty. They poop in a box with minimal training. They respond well to being given food. And depending on their personality they will come when called and even play fetch all by default with no training at all.
But yeah, some cats are absolute hell demons unfit for domestic partnering.
@sonofafishtaco, that’s not discipline. That’s just cats following their instincts. As for coming when called or playing fetch, very few cats do either. That’s you pointing at the exceptions and claiming they’re the norm.
@I Are Lebo, easy sailor, not trying to argue about cats on the internet rofl literally my first sentence makes it clear I'm talking of the exception.
@sonofafishtaco, you said something dishonest and I called you on it.
@I Are Lebo, I love my cats! They’re really sweet and loving,sometimes even more than my dogs
@I Are Lebo, they are much lower maintenance than dogs
@Nudity Industries, yeah, so are fish. Doesn’t make them better pets.
@I Are Lebo, cats, when compared to dogs, require less training, less maintenance, can handle themselves when left alone for a few days if given enough food, and they bathe themselves. They are the superior small to midsize furry companion, at least by my standards.
@Nudity Industries, no way. Cats don’t love like dogs do, they don’t play like dogs do. They don’t give affection the way dogs do. They aren’t useful like dogs can be.
If you want to have a pet to have a pet, maybe go for a cat. If you want an addition to your family, you get a dog.
@seeUpee, I think that’s where the crazy part comes in...
@I Are Lebo, semantics at best brother. I thought you were asking an honest question and I gave you an honest answer.
@sonofafishtaco, its not semantics at all. You’re conflating cats self grooming with discipline. Those are wholly separate. It isn’t discipline when cats get happy while being fed. It isn’t obedience even cats crap in a litterbox.
And I’ve never heard of cats playing fetch and most do not come when called.
Your answer was not honest.
@I Are Lebo, it is semantics. While not technically discipline because for cats it is inherent, when compared to other pets it resembles discipline. And I was only ever answering the question. An opinion based question. Not sure why you so adamantly question honesty. I honestly have the opinion that cats act disciplined compared to other pets. You're being super rude, defensive and combative.. where is this coming from?
@I Are Lebo, wait a goddamn minute.. are you mad at me over my seemingly conflicting array of unrelated opinions shared else where on funny pics? I'm only here because my hate for Nazis supercedes my misanthropic nihilism, bro.
@sonofafishtaco, I’m not mad at all. I’m simply pointing out that you are misusing the word discipline. Doing something because you are compelled to by instinct is the exact opposite of discipline. It’s not semantics. This is like someone who is lazy forcing thenself to get up early to jog versus an athletic person who loves jogging doing so. The action may be the same but one is an act of discipline and the other is not.
Cats aren’t disciplined. They do what they want, when they want to. That’s the opposite of discipline.
I’m questioning your honesty because you are dismissive of the fact that your argument is false. You’re claiming that cats are ‘instinctively disciplined’, which is a contradictory claim. Discipline is force of will acting against instinct. Which means you are either ignorant of what discipline means or you are arguing dishonestly.
If it makes you feel better for me to not assume you’re being dishonest, I can always simply assume you’re just ignorant.
@I Are Lebo, I don't feel bad tho kiddo. I didn't claim anything. I gave an honest opinion to a question that was a rhetorical and a joke. my mistake.
@I Are Lebo, I do honestly hope I've helped you overcome whatever difficulty has led you into this tirade (against cats?) of yours. Sometimes getting it out of your system is this first step. :)
@sonofafishtaco, you’re a condescending dick that refuses to acknowledge even the possibility of having made an error. I’m done with you now.
@I Are Lebo, I know. Sorry you feel that way. But I still think cats are pretty dope. but for the record I've had arguments on funny pics plenty of times where I acknowledged I was wrong. I just wasn't this time.
@sonofafishtaco, the discussion was never about whether or not you like cats. I was talking about how the vast majority of stories from cat owners about their cats paint the animals as horrible little monsters that hurt them and abuse them on a regular basis. You said “most cats have discipline by default”, which is not true. You followed it up by attributing several behaviours to cats that are all not about discipline. Being clean isn’t disciplined if you’re only cleaning yourself because it bothers you to be dirty. Being pleased when fed isn’t an issue of discipline. Pooping in a box isn’t discipline if you naturally are compelled to do it.
You made a false argument, based on a misunderstanding of the word discipline. Then you dismissed me pointing this out to you as if it didn’t matter. It’s not discipline, and you continuing to argue that it is (while also saying it’s “just an opinion”) after the flaw in your argument has been pointed out to you is dishonest debating.
And calling other users kiddo, especially when you have no idea how old they are, makes you a condescending asshole who lashes out at others when your ego refuses to allow you to acknowledge your own mistakes.
Too early to know if it is worth the read...
@3345Stewie, It's alright I guess.
@3345Stewie, its a solid eeeeeh
Can’t relate my cat is a push over. I open mouth with left hand drop in pill and hold his mouth closed till he swallows, ezpz
Where does one get one of these kinds of cats?
Please, I'd line that shjt up and hit it like I'm going for field goal from 50 yards out
