Cow Cat?

GEORGE

Yesterday Dad told me if my spots were brown instead of grey, I'd look like a cow!

Granted, we live in Whisk-onsin, which is called the Dairy State, and there are a lot of cows everywhere, but I don't know how to take this. Is it an insult or a compliment? I mean, I haven't met any cows personally so I don't know what to think. Should I be offended? Should I laugh it off? Should I think that maybe my Dad is getting senile?

Maybe he just needs new glasses and I should make an eye exam appointment for him. Maybe I should ask Moses. Since he lives in a barn now, he must be acquainted with lots of cows.

How can I be compared to a cow? I'm smarter, smaller, cleaner, and I don't give milk. Heck, I don't even like milk!

Is this because while Dad was in Texas recently he saw lots of cows? If so, I'd like to think that maybe it's because while he was driving past them he was thinking about me.

What do you think?

George, I think you are far more handsome than those cows.

I don't know, George. I'd be careful. You know they say, "It takes one to know one."

Perhaps your dad is a cow? I'm not sure how you'd test for this, but if he says things like "MOO," it's a strong indication he may be of bovine descent.

If your dad is as old as my bro (16!), he may be getting senile. Does he forget that he's just eaten 2 seconds ago and then cry real loud in the hallway for food like he's starving to bits? You should keep your eye out for that behavior.

Our boy had a firend with a black & white spotted kitty and her name was "Cow Kitty"! No kidding! Yes, it is insulting...those things chew their food over & over then barf it up & chew it again. Deesguting!

Cows are important in Dairyland, but honestly, you are much more hansome and intelligent than an old cow in a field. You have beanpets to provide you shelter, food, and rubbies and scritchies. Do cows get that? NO! You are also furry furry hansome! Cows are just---cows.

Your dad is being rude. You are much better than a cow. Would he like to share his house with a real cow? Maybe he should try that before he calls you a cow.

I think your dad is confused, George. You wouldn't look anything like a cow no matter what color/s you are.

What's a "cow"?

I dunno...I've been told that cows are very nice and are very important for People. Maybe it was a nice thing he meant, not an insult. Or maybe he'd had one of those red drinks my People like so much...

I don't think you'd look like a cow at all. Cows don't have really long whiskers and dainty noises and you do.

Mom says I look like a cow except for my stripey tail. I guess, lookin at those cow pictures, I kinda do... but I'm not a big fat slobbery cow either!! And besides, I do NOT eat grass. Humph.

She calls cats like you and nels (whose markings are black) "holstein" cats. but some of Her bestest memories are of times on Her grandbeans' farm in adams county, whiskonsin, where there were lots 'n' lotsa cows (still are, we think). so "cows" means nice things to our She and nels doesn't take offense. maybe that's your dad's reasoning?

It could just mean that your dad was missing you so much while he was gone that he was looking for things to remind him of home. I think it shows how much you are on his mind that he sees you lots of places! And Harlie says being a cowcat isn't so bad. She likes it. Though you should as Victor about it since Bonnie uses it as an insult against him.

We think beans have a strange sense of humor and sometimes it's at our expense. Our Human just catsat for one of the guys she works with and he and his wife have a cat named Holstein. Yeah, he's black and white. We tried not to get disgusted when she'd come home from feeding "Holstein" and sarcastically ask her if she had to do the milking too. Gees.
