I just like the meme. I actually despise cats. They're useless. Sorry, cat people.

Dog person for life.

Cats are NOT useless.

They're perfectly useful and perfectly suited for keeping mice out of your shit. They are awful creatures that don't hide how much they hate you though.

The Labrador Retriever is one of mankind's 3 redeeming achievements.

Yeah I have no beef with cats, and in fact very much want one to accompany my two dogs. But I want a dog-cat. Not a cat-cat.
Not all cats and unfortunately, you won't know when you get one, can be trained like a dog. My last cat was and rode in the car etc just like a dog. Came when I whistled for her. Getting a kitten is obviously best.

How about a cat-dog?

yeah I think when the day comes for me to get one, I’d take a 2, 3 year old one that I have had the chance to become somewhat familiar with the temperament, or at least have a friend who can vouch for its temperament.

I have no cahonies to “train” an animal - my methods are almost entirely based on simply exposing the animal to a “lifestyle” - aka my lifestyle. And with time, they become used to that lifestyle, and don’t act like an ass when exposed to “that lifestyle.” I am mostly talking about walking off-leash, going camping, going to parties, etc.

I obviously wouldn’t be taking my cat to parties

I had a cat as a young kid that would come running when you whistled, and played fetch a little.

A local guy's cat Gary is Reddit famous, because he takes him skiing, kayaking, hiking, etc. The cat seems to like it, and even has a ski pass with his picture on it; the guy doesn't seem to realize that a dog is better for all those things LOL.

No judgement as to people loving their pets and familiars though. Hell, some people even keep birds as pets, if you can believe that.

Get a Serval, lots of qualities to admire:

-other cats and dogs don't scare it.
-makes funny noises that dictate its mood
-if you hear it hiss at you, you should probably run.
-fences don't matter, it can jump over them.
-can eat chicken faster than any human
-has a purr than can be heard from across the room.
-can lunge at you from across the room
-its preferred car to be taken to the vet in is a GTI

My coworker brings his parrot Clyde to the office quite frequently

I guess I was a little hasty in my expectation to install the Vortex this weekend. I'll have everything hardware wise, but apparently it can take 1 - 3 weeks to receive the base map for the custom e-tune from EQT. Which doesn't make sense to me, but hey, it is what it is. I'd think the starting base map is just like their canned OTS tunes; they have a large library based on what options you check off while purchasing to use as a starting point. Without any data logs, how is my car any different (to them, at least) than anybody else who checked off "Intake, HPFP upgrade, downpipe, intercooler, exhaust, Vortex"? Obviously, once they start getting logs for revisions, it gets custom tailored. But they've probably tuned over a hundred cars with the same base set of mods, and I'd think they'd already have that base starting map ready to go?

This isn't a complaint or anything, just really thinking out loud about how it seems like it would work to me. Which is probably completely incorrect, since I don't know what goes on in the backend over there.

Yep, we have 2 feral cats we took in as kittens. One of them actually barks, or as close as a cat can get to barking, when someone comes to the door. They grew up with our now deceased Doberman as a mother.
