We have a cat. No, they have a cat…my wife and daughter.  She (cat, not wife) is old and getting senile but she still rules the house.  I have tried. I play the allergy card, the hairball and germs card…even the “suck the life out of our daughter while she sleeps card” but to no avail.  The wife says she’s known the cat longer than me.  And now this!

A study from the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis shows nine lives or not, your cat could help you live longer. People who have owned a feline are 40% less likely to die of a heart attack, perhaps due to the pets' anxiety-easing powers.

I wonder if I could get a Dave sized cat door.
