For all intents and purposes, I am a g0d to my cat. My level of understanding of the universe around me is so much greater than hers that I worry all the time, yet her ignorant bliss regarding the safety and nourishment she is provided leaves her rarely ever shook up.
She must have a thick ass cortex.

Hopefully this is one of those times.
That's what breeding is for.
AKA: Artificial selection?
Doesn't it seem like maybe they went one complimentary adjective too far?
Cheese and frickin' rice. There is nothing sadder than a group of tribalist asshats who believe in Zip Code superiority.
you're shooting for a first post that's impossible to child under without painting the off-topic bulls-eye right on the front of my shirt.
