Herald homework: Cats have many advantages

Why I love cats: The reason why I love these little critters is because they are just little balls of fur you can hold in your arms while they purr.

Though, as they get older, they get more unpredictable. For example, my cat Fizzy was a little poof ball that mewed for some lovey snuggles. Now, she is a little fireball, giving the stink eye to everyone.

My other cat, Ariel was a cute little cross-eyed kitten. She slept with me and we snuggled all the time when I was five years old. Now, she still purrs and rubs against your legs, meowing for you to pet her. Once in a while though, she will bite you just to see how you taste.

Some cats are friendly and some, not so much, but all and all, I love them very much.
