LOL, I see. Can't use the word 'hate' because it is blasphemous in my faith concerning the feline species but I really don't like Garfield, and lions. I have no idea why. I mean I can't help but love Greebo?

"Greebo is a cat in Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. He is first introduced in Wyrd Sisters. He is a foul-tempered one-eyed grey tomcat whose human, Nanny Ogg, insists against all the evidence that he is a sweet, harmless kitten." ... Garfield is an asshole, not even a lovable one.  Once at the zoo, outside the cheetah pen, I heard the cheetahs meow ... adorable if you aren't running from them.  Scary short story I read years ago.  People develop virtual reality too well.  Parents go on a walking tour of the Serengeti ... they forget about the big cats there ;-(  This was written long before the always malfunctioning Holodeck on Star Trek.

Greebo is not lovable. He is a serial rapist and a killer who chases wolves and bears because nothing is around when he is out. I think the only live organism he exercises some self awareness around is Esmeralda Weatherwax. LOL, like the rest of that world.

My mom's orange tom cat, back in 1960, the dogs on the street went to the opposite site of the street to avoid him ;-)
