Cat's aren't especially manly pets, and that tends to (unfairly) reflect on the owners. They're not "man's best friend" and they don't have that kind of manly duty of defending hearth and home (not that I've ever actually seen a dog do that, unless you count giving the mailman a hard time, or running into the front hall when someone on TV rings a doorbell). Worse, I've heard from more than a few women that they look with a weird kind of suspicion on single men who own cats. I'm not cat person particularly (I'm allergic, and so they seem magnetically drawn to my stuffed-up face), but as the owner of a not-very-manly small white fluffy dog, I can empathize with guys who happen to have a potentially emasculating feline pet. So I thought I might share this video, that I dug up over on The Cat Blog. The amount of swooning that any of you female readers do or don't do over the guy in the video is entirely at your discretion. But he's certainly a "real man" (whatever that means) and he appears to have a pet cat. It's part of the Much Love Animal Rescue's "It's Okay to be a Cat Guy" campaign. Maybe man just got himself a second best friend.
