He did. I'm both. I always thought I was cat-only until I married a dog
person and learned to love dogs. Now we have an antique spaniel
(Ace-the-Snout) and an young JackRussel X (Tess Toad Tummy) and the cat you
have when you're not having a cat - Rose. She eats and leaves to spend the
rest of the day lurking under bushes and snoozing. Ungrateful creature! She
really doesn't like people at all and I think it must be genetic since
we've had her since kitten-hood and she'd never been mistreated. About once
a month she'll suddenly register my existence and say "Wow-oww?" I stroke
her, she claws me. And that's that.

Beatrice Brandon is a Dog person too. Monica Edwards was a Cat Person.

I watch 4 hours a week at the moment; - BUFFY and STARGATE and THE BILL.
When they're on, I watch HEARTBEAT (sometimes) and SEACHANGE (always). My
favourite TV show was DR WHO, but they seem to have lost it.

does he know that?”
