Named Karl and Jason after two guys in my class because they are always fighting. This picture was taken about a month ago, they aren't yellow anymore and are much much bigger. We have a load of animals chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, cows but aren't farmers we just have some woodland that we fenced off and the animals walk around eating grass and turning themselves in to food. No dogs either I'm afraid :( . I hate cats.

In another couple of months they will be in my lunchbox.

I used to hate cats too, no rational reason for it, just did but then I had a girlfriend who had a cat, when we split up I found I missed the cat but didn't miss her, so I got my little pal Íosa :)

I just see them as superficial animals. Any affection they seem to show is so they can be pampered by their owner. Besides their range of emotions is limited to smugness or holding animosity. They also creep me out, I don't like the way they move.

A dog on the other hand will guard his owner, wrestle him, play games and permanently seems to be happy just to be in your company. Cats are independent while dogs are social/pack animals.

Sorry chemicals, I'm sure you love your cat. They just aren't for me.

Dogs are too needy, I like a cats independant spirit. I also like their cleanliness.

No, I don't have any pics of Íosa and my sister has my digital camera in Spain with her for her holidays, I'll take some pics when she returns.

Cleanliness?! They lick their butts same as dogs.
The only difference is that they wash their paws straight away if they get mud on them, compared to a dog who only gets down to cleaning up after the fun is over.
That said, I adore both.

This is my now very old dog, who sadly lives in another country.
