IMO, cat's are kind of the original individualists.

They're like, "Fuck you, we do our own thing."

Most cats are self-respecting, and they don't give a shit what their humans do. Because the cats know they are above all of that.

As Kipling wrote, "I am the cat who walks by himself, and all places are alike to me."

Trump is like a big cat, like the jaguar or tiger. Goes where he wants. Does what he wants. Don't get in his way or he'll fuck you up. I'd say he's like the lion, but that comparison is reserved for Ted Cruz.

The little cats in your house? They're like mini-GEOTUSs. George Carlin said it best: if a cat does something embarrassing, that cat will look at you as if to say, "I MEANT to do that."

My cat, he's a fat fuck. I feed him because he's awesome, doesn't bite when I pet him, and he makes me laugh. One time, i was making fun of him and joking that he was too corpulent to catch mice and rodents, let alone birds. The VERY next day, he dragged a freshly killed bird into our house. A very direct way to say "Fuck you, I'm a badass." Bastard understands English, let me tell you.

Dogs, they hardly have standards at all. I love my dog. He's loyal. But he's nasty motherfucker. Doesn't care to stay clean, would probably eat a turd off the grass if I let him, gets into shit and then acts guilty as hell.

Cats, they are above standards. You don't own a cat. THEY tolerate YOU, not the other way around.

EXTRA POINTS You quoted Kipling.

I am down to one now. My Bubba died last summer just a few days after his 17th birthday. My girl is upstairs practicing spatial-geometry by taking up enough of a queen size bed that I have no room. Impressive skill for a 12 pound cat. She is 18, nearly blind and still independent as hell.

That confidence they have is what makes it irresistibly funny when they do screw up from time to time. Especially since they know it too. With the cats we had growing up it was usually when they misjudged a jump and crashed into something. I think George Carlin did a routine on this.
