I'm definitely a dog person, but I feel strongly for all animals. I wish that more cats liked me, but in truth, I don't really understand them. I probably treat the three ferals I care for more like dogs than like cats, but what that means exactly, I can't say.
Anyway, I'm not hurt when they don't like me. I probably smell too much like dogs for them, or have the wrong nature or something. If they don't want to be friends, I'm okay with that. I'll still help them if they need it.
Dogs and nature abhor a vacuum.
