Marvin is completely obsessed with Tallulah. She can't click into a room without him remarking on her. "Look at my Lu!" "Hello, you cute thing!"
Sometimes I'll be sleeping and I'll hear him come in, and kiss the dog. Irritating.
I asked him yesterday, "Do you like the dog better than our cats?"
"Yes," he said.
"Even Winston?" Winston is perfect.
"I like Winston quite a lot," he said, "but I like dogs better than cats."
This bugged me, because all my life I've been a cat person and when people say they don't like cats I kind of look down on them. Kind of like how I judge people who say, "I liked that movie, but it was too long." Geez, grow an attention span.
When I'm being less judgy, I figure you don't like cats because you've never lived with one, so you don't understand them. You have to know how to approach a cat. It takes time.
Anyway, it occurred to me I talk a lot more about that dog than I do my cats, don't I? Could I be becoming a dog person?!
Which do you like better? Why?
