There are two types of people in this world: Those who like cats, and those who should have Dave's Insanity Sauce poured into their eyes.

My favorite cat breed:

I guess you best pour away. Actually, I have a reason for not liking domestic cats - they make my face swell up and I develop a nasty sneeze/runny noise. It's hard to love something that has that sort of an impact on you.

I do, however, love big cats. Just the athleticism and abilities are something to be admired/respected, something like this:

We have three Hemingway cats and they are so cool. They could kick some **** in a fight with all those extra claws(I don't believe in de-clawing).

+1. Tigers are my favourite big cat, closely followed by Mountain Lions and Snow Leopards.

I am a cat person 100%. Here are my two cats. Both are well traveled having lived on a farm in Australia, flown from Melbourne to Colorado, and then again to Toronto. They don't like the Ontario winters too much either!

Cougars have a beautiful shape along with panthers, tigers, and lionesses. Cheetahs, not so much.

A guy I know was marking the course for a trail running race when there were still snow fields covering the route up high. He looked back at one point to find a cougar following his tracks in the snow. :eek:

The rare Urban Cougar is my favorite. They can be found in their "natural" Habitat of Orange Country. I would post some pictures but I am sure Susan would not like that.
