I'm going to let you into a small bit of a cat's mind; we don't believe there is any difference between us and what you call humans. To cats, humans are just bigger cats.
When I was born, I allowed myself to be adopted by a nice bigger cat called Chris. I decided that he needed a cat name and so I called him the Big-Cat.
A couple years ago, the Big-Cat met someone with the human name of Josie. Since I already owned a big-cat, I decided to call her the Middle-Cat.
The Middle Cat and I did not get along at first (I like to be distant when meeting someone new and make them work for my affection).
Over the years, she has worked hard to get me to like her and as you can see, she has learned to pick me up and carry me around our new house.
The Middle-Cat is almost tied for first place in my heart; and if the Big-Cat cuts my claws one more time, his stock will fall and the Middle-Cat will be #1.
