Advice for New Cat Owners

It is most important to not hurt a cats soul for it is the perfect balance of nobility and ridiculousness, be gentle with its finer feelings they are more sensitive than yours. Do be not laugh if it scares itself in a mirror. A cat is instinctual to the core, a bewhiskered accolade of slapstick. Clean its litter box, twice a day if need be. It will refuse to poop on its own poop unlike some humans. Your cat needs attention, it expects you to admire its coat, its signaling semaphore tail, its delicate pink tongue and beautiful eyes, failure to do so may result in fur balls in your bed. Be warned cats are not naturally forgiving.
