I never much liked cats until recently. I'm a dog and horse person -- I get them and they get me. But my husband likes cats and wanted one, so I've had on-the-job training with felines over the past couple of years. (We adopted my dads after he passed away, then got another as a kitten.) So many things about them are so very different from dogs that it took me a while to even begin to figure them out.
I may not be completely comfortable with all cats, even now, but I've come to love mine. They grow on you. (That's the "baby" of the family, Roan the ragdoll, above.)
