What is a breakfast cheese?
The cat is lovely. It reminds me of an old friend of mine, another black cat with green eyes.
Cats in particular tend to be far more self-sufficient than human babies. Anyone who thinks keeping a cat is good preparation for having a baby is in for a rude awakening, indeed, repeated rude awakenings in the middle of the night.
The tiny creature who lives in a perpetual state of dependence toward me can be analogized to a baby for obvious reasons; referring to them as “it” is far more insulting.
