Ah, cats. Must we count the ways we adore these fuzzy numnutters? What lovely little balls of fur they are, the lot of them! Is there anything more perfectly, adorably innocent than an itty bitty kitty cat curled up in a wee little pile of fluff on your lap? Anything more sweetly elegant than the gentle swish of its tail?

We think not. Let's take a moment to reflect on all the joy these wonderful feline friends bring to our lives.

Soft kitty, warm kitty...

How lovely you are.

Who would deny thine beauty and composure?

Gracefully lightfooted...

You retain an unwavering poise...

That simply comes naturally.

A clear descendant of your fearsome ancestors...

We would do well to respect your independent spirit.

Yes, you may as well be a monument to nature's elegance.

Blessed with a clever mind...

And a kind soul...

Each of your actions, a product of thousands of generation of finely tuned evolution.

But you give us no reason for fear!

Truly, you're a darling creature.

Every day, you stare down life's problems...

Yet handle them with aplomb...

Showing off your stylish precision and dexterity...

Impressive creativity...

And endearing wit.

With a downy coat as soft as feathers...

You carry yourself daintily...

Your regality exhibited both while asleep...

And awake.

Indeed, although you may embody the vigilance of a carnivore...

Always alert and ready for action...

You're still willing to cooperate occasionally with mankind.

Putting on a friendly disposition...

You greet your human masters with open arms...

Enthusiasm...

And, above all, tender warmth...

All in exchange for everlasting friendship.

Whatchu lookin at?
