Welcome back to another Tuesday and another question posed by the hostess whose tour for Charade kicks off this week, Cambria Hebert. If you want to take part, go to her blog answer the question and link up. This week's query:
If you could be any animal what would you be and why?
I quickly pondered over this question and knew the answer. Yes, there are many many animals that I admire and adore, cuddly koala and panda bears, cheetahs, jaguars, hawks and whales, but they have a hard life. Let's face it, Nature is cruel and it is survival of the fittest out there. While I would love to soar through the skies and swim the oceans deep, I am a wuss and hate the thought of being preyed upon. Plus, I am a creature accustomed to comfort. So it was easy to narrow this down to two choices: dog or cat? I have a dog and two cats, whom I absolutely adore. Do I want to be my dog, Bruno or
cats, Rex and Smokey. Well, it wasn't too difficult to decide. Definitely a cat. The reason is, while Bruno has a great life, dogs are kind of gross. My dog eats almost anything and everything, I am going to spare you the nasty details but I will say litter box=snack. He probably looks like the dog in the photo when he is salivating over anything, including the nasty stuff. Need I say more? Not to mention for whatever insane reason he purposefully rolls around in really smelly stuff. I would want to skip the smelliness and the unpalatable meals.
Now being a strictly indoor cat is the way to go. My cats spend hours curled up on soft
comfy pillows dozing the day away. All they have to do is stroll to their food dish and litter box. At night they curl up on my bed. Whenever they need attention, they climb into my lap and contentedly lie there purring while getting their fur stroked and their ears scratched. That is the life for me! What about you? What animal would you be?
