I love my dog. I don't "take-him-to-restaurants-or-on-vacation-or-to-the-grocery-store" kind of love him. But he's okay. And he & I are okay with that.
They have made a kitten café where you would bring your cats and give them a treat while you drink coffee with other people who also think their cat is important. I suppose it's not a bad thing because at least now I know the place and the people to avoid. Sometimes it's a crapshoot as to where all the d-bags are whereas in the kitten café you know exactly what you're in store for.
