I've been watching a lot of My Cat From Hell lately. I can't get enough of this stuff. Jackson Galaxy, (ten bucks that name is REAL) who is a cat behaviorist, says that cats who hiss have low self-esteem, because they're not confident enough of themselves and their surroundings, so when they get nervous, they lash out and hiss to protect themselves but to also comfort themselves and make them seem cooler. Or something.
Anyway, I was telling all this to my mom today, and I was telling her that I'm worried because I think Hairy has low self-esteem, because she hisses at everybody (but me) even when she has no reason to, and Mom, this stuff is SERIOUS and I want Hairy to love herself and how should I boost her confidence and what do you think about that?
And my mom said,
"Your cat does not have low self-esteem. She's just stupid. And hey, you're not going to post this on your blog, are you?"
Me: "Actually, yeah, I was going to. Why?"
Mom: "Because then people will think you're weird."
Thanks for the chat, Mom! ;D
