Men. Men who own cats.

My roommate, the Jiggaman, will be out of town for the next few days and has asked me to take care of his cats. This is not normally a difficult task as cats can be low maintenance creatures. Well this would be true if his felines were normal.

My parents owned a cat who in his old age decided the litter box wasn't a good thing to use. The Jiggaman's cat, who he named Monkey, has a similar problem in the fact that he poops bigger than I do. To keep up with his bowel movements one has to clean the litter box twice, even three times, a day. If you don't the miserable beast will crap all over the side of the litter box.

What's worse is the smell. Never has such an odor reeked out of your average African Rhino much less a house cat. The next few days should be fun.

My roommate does love his cats dearly, but I was always under the idea that single men should not own felines. When I think about it almost all my single friends own cats. Even the Jiggaman enjoys using those stupid cat 'lol' pictures as a desktop and IM avatar. Am I the odd man out here? Did I miss a fad? Should I just trim my mullet and get with the times?

I think not.

Cats should not be pets. And the really nasty cat stink actually comes from a male cat's urine. When a male cat is horny and not getting any, his piss stinks something fierce and should he piss on something like a sofa. You HAVE TO buy a new sofa, you'll NEVER get the smell out.

I think anyone and everyone should own cats...they are so cute and cuddly :)

So, the Jiggaman overheard me calling Monkey a dumb cat and he told me I was not allowed to come to his house and insult his animals. I told him not to have stupid animals. Typical conversation between me and the Jiggaman, really.

I loathe cats. To me, they are nothing more than moving targets.
