Misunderstandings make the world go round—but only when they happen to other people. Remember that time you mistakenly asked if that lady was pregnant? No? Well, I certainly do.

The cat, man’s greatest friend. Not best, like the lowly dog, but great. Consider yourself lucky if you have one of these feline friends, frolicking around your home. As you can see, I love cats.
