I'd rather sit next to a cat than a kid anyday.

Have you ever done so on an airplane? I have. I would ban this in an instant if I had the power to do so. The plane hadn't even taken off and the cat started howling and voiding. It didn't stop until the plane landed three hours later, the entire area reeking of cat feces and urine.

Lol, oh dear. I'm sorry but I am just not a fan of kids so I really would prefer to sit next to a cat. Plus, I have a cat so I may be biased.

Amen!!

Many years ago, I flew my cat from Houston to St. Louis.... I knew she would be nervous, so I had the vet give us some kitty valium and she was just fine once it took effect....

My cat is a horrible traveler, just horrible. I've never taken him on a plane but whenever I drive up north he comes with me, it's about a 4 hour drive. I try to keep him in his carrier for as long as possible but he's so pathetic that I eventually let him out. Then, he insists on laying on my lap while I drive. Then he drools. Inevitably he pukes. Oh, and he always poops right in the beginning of the trip, when I'm driving to pick up my friend. So, I know now to bring along two towels, lol. He eventually settles down. Poor guy. But, once he gets up north he loves it up there, he just hates the car ride.

Lol. Ohh... the danger involved! Do we really need to go code red on this one? Is this the equivalent of some deranged maniac waving a knife or gun at the passengers? Yes, in fact, it does appear that the folks on the bus are more amused than apprehensive, as I would have been.

That poor dog's tennis ball is one absolutely filthy tuft of crap. Is this guy so poor that he can't even afford a clean tennis ball for his dog? And this happened by accident because the dog couldn't wait for this man to finish his cigarette before getting on the bus? A smart dog with a really stupid owner.

I hate cats, I am allergic to them and I think they are pretty pointless (not to mention being a huge dog fan). However, I would much rather sit next to a cat than a kid. All day, any day.
