Cat FUD

We often talk about cat fud, but what if it was cat FUD - the Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt of computer marketing campaigns? So what would cat FUD be?

"Ah, cats, they wake you up at 4.30 in the morning"
"Cats shed white on black, and black on white - it's a fact"
"Did you know hairballs explode on contact with water?"
"That cute kitten? Did you sign the maintenance contract?"
"Upgrade a cat? Fat chance!"

Hmm. Not so much FUD as the truth of living with a pride of the beasts....

Cats live how we'd like to live - and without guilt. ;)

Doing sod all, occasionally killing and licking your bollocks for entertainment, if you've not been castrated? Speak for yourself.

They are wholly admirable for their total lack of compromise, compassion and humility. They are entirely true to their nature and highly suited, despite their walnut-sized brains, to manipulating humans. Oh, and killing things.

You can see how dogs got domesticated and the value they brought; cats, on the other hand...

I often have this vision of Cro-Magnon types sat around a fire when a cat muscled in, taking the warmest spot and emoting "love me, feed me, spoil me, worship me" - and them doing so.

I get your drift, but I don't see any of those things as admirable or attractive.

Coming to you and purring at you is pleasant and AFAICS that is ALL they have going for them.

And one of Kjersti's has cut itself somehow and bled all over the kitchen this morning. I fear I may have to take the damn' thing to the vet. [Sigh]

Upgrading cats
Cats can upgrade their humans, tho'. I'm convinced when Gremlin bent the bars on his cage and escaped incarceration at the cattery he was off to a better set of owners (ones who didn't take him to a cattery just so they could go to an eastercon).

Of course, cats can be reconfigured so as to prevent replication.

Of course the manufacturer claims they catch mice, but our new Cobra technology is far superior, and will be on the market in only a few months.
