If Dogs and Cats Could Talk, What Would They Say? #ShortStory #DianaMarySharpton

Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.” 
― Christopher Hitchens

I must admit to a certain level of discrimination with the pets I have owned over the years (i.e. cats and dogs). I loved them both don’t get me wrong. It’s just that, I always felt my cat pets were a tad bit more intelligent and my dog pets were vastly more loyal. Each pet of course had a special place in my heart and life.

My Cat Pets:
Interestingly or not were named Michi (6) with three exceptions Billboy, Pewee and DC (Darn Cat for short), mainly, because my sister’s cat already had taken the name of Michi. Michi is a short slang name in Mexico for CAT and I know it’s not very original but it always worked for me. I would look at each cat differently and remember their individuality and how they lite up my life.  My experiences with cat pets were that they required little attention, learned quickly where the liter utility box was located and loved to exercise their claw sharpening skills on the back of your best furniture.

My Dog Pets:
Pluto, Quissor (5) and Franky. Like the name Michi for my cat pets, I held on to the name Quissor for
my dog pets. I am really not sure what psychological connotation may or can be derived from the inability to come up with new and different names for my pets but it always felt right and it is what it is. My dog pets were always with me, horseback riding, walking and exploring the neighbor hoods. Unlike the outdoor dogs, I found my house dog to be somewhat needed and potting training was not fun. It left me needing a dog whisperer. I would have gone this route, if they didn't charge $250/per hour with a minimum of two hours to train. I was in such sticker shock that I almost considered reading up on the art behind dog whispering as a potential second source of income. This fell through due to my lack of patience in the first place.

The bottom line is that I loved both kinds of pets. They brought different levels of affection and interaction to the table. I found that outside dogs worked better for me than the in-house variety. Anyway, I have had the ability to connect with animals and I have always wondered what a CAT or DOG would say if they could.

So when I came across the below two videos, which are essentially a satirical parody on dogs and cats, I could not help myself, I just had to share with you. I highly recommend listening to them, they are hilarious and it only takes a couple of minutes of your time. I promise your day will lighten up!

Peace Diana
