I think I've realized the reason that I love/hate our cat, all at the same time.
She has a mind of her own.
Which I actually think is kind of fascinating/entertaining/interesting. Dogs - you almost always know what they're thinking. They love you, they want to be with you, or they want food. It's one of the three - take your pick. Which is totally awesome, don't get me wrong. I just think cats are so much more interesting.
Like my cat in this picture, "what the 'h' is she thinking?" (yes that was the edited version for blogging purposes ;). But that's partly why I love her.
So feisty and so irritating, yet so adorable.
