“You know where you are with cats. They don’t pretend to be your friend. They don’t promise one thing and then disappoint. They never offer you loyalty or friendship. All they promise is that, if you give them unconditional love, regular food and grooming, they may spend five minutes a day sitting on your lap, scratching the shit out of your best clothes.
“It’s hardly the best of relationships.”
He shrugged. “True, but it is the most honest.”
