The other night, Steve and his female were watching a new show on Animal Planet called Housecat Housecall. The premise of the show is an Australian animal psychologist (is everyone on Animal Planet Australian?) goes to peoples’ homes and resolves “problems” with their cats.
On the particular episode I saw (from my usual perch on the back of the couch behind Steve and the female), one family was upset because their cat was paying too much attention to their porcelain figurine collection, which took up a whole wall, but the way. Geez, what a surprise! A cat is interested in a wall of glistening, moving objects that also happen to be breakable! And then another family was concerned because when strangers come over, their cat runs and hides. Madre de Dios! Another shocker! A cat is wary of newcomers in their territory!
The underlying theme here is that these cats are just being cats… it’s the humans who have the “problems.” And personally, if the truth be told, I was hoping to see that one cat do a “bull in a china shop” thing with the porcelain figurine collection. Now THAT would have been some REAL entertainment!
