Weekend Assignment #148: Cats or Cheese?

There's only enough room on the planet for one of them -- and you have to decide which stays and which goes. Which do you choose and why? Now, you ask, why cats and cheese? Well, why not? People like cats; people like cheese. They're generally considered to be unrelated. Having to choose one over the other sort of gives you insight into your soul, about what's really important to you. Or, alternately, it's just fun to consider. Really, let's not pretend we're doing anything too deep here.

For charity's sake, when we say "cats" we mean domestic cats; lions and tiger and cheetahs and such will still be about, so you don't have to worry about taking out a whole bunch of endangered species. When we say "cheese" we mean all cheese, even the stuff that comes out of aerosol cans and/or is spelled "cheez." It all goes.

Extra Credit: what's your favorite breed of cat and/or type of cheese?
 
It's no contest !  Cat's paws down.   Cheese doesn't look up at you longingly, winding in a circle 8 pattern thru your legs.....cheese doesn't try to snuggle with you in bed...cheese isn't soft and warm when it lays on your lap....cheese isn't waiting by the door when you come home after a long day.....and cheese doesn't love you unconditionally.
 
My Extra Credit:  my favorite breed right this moment is the Exotic short hair and that's because I have one.  But in the past I've had a very loving 25 lb Maine Coon, several Siamese and some just plain cats.  All have been sweet natured and brought a lot of love, enjoyment and comfort to our home.

 
Exotic Shorthair cats are featured in the March 2007issue of Cat Fancy magazine, on your news stand now.

Hi Linda and Gabi Lin!  Cats are better I think too because they don't constipate you.  LOL Barbara

Well not being a cat person, I'd say keep cheese, I mean....how else would you make macaroni and cheese.  LOL Gabi Lin is adorable. I'd hide her so she wouldn't have to go anywhere.  Who dreams up these scenarios? LOL
