They also pounce on bugs and play with them. I once saw a cat press down on a bug's body until it was completely flat. I love dogs too. They have smiling faces, wagging tails, and nice fluffy flanks for petting, patting, and stroking. However, too many of these beasts are crazed with foam rabies -- and that can turn a party into the petting zoo from hell." [via Flavorwire]
