As a cat lover who once trained a mongrel from a dog pound thoroughly enough for her to pass the AKC “Companion Dog” obedience test, I would like it very much if the internecine “dog versus cat” war would cease. If the Catholics and Protestants in northern Ireland can give it a rest, then so can American dog and cat owners. I prefer cats, but enjoy the occasional company of well-behaved dogs. After ten straight hours of copyediting, good luck getting your cat to go out in the yard with you and chase a frisbee, to blow off some steam. Mind you, the cat will stay by your side the whole time you’re at your desk, displaying her beauty and otherwise implicitly urging you on. To borrow from that disgusting movie “Pulp Fiction,” one can love the Beatles, and like Elvis.
