I couldn't find a suitable tag for this one. And as I've said before, I won't go back and correct spelling.
"He could never be a racist." is a statement my younger daughter said out of the blue regarding our 2nd eldest male cat, Biscuit. Her logic is that since he is black and white, he could never be racist. Since he has extra toes and no tail (he is a manx) he would never pick on handicapped people or handicapped animals. She says that he was just born the way he is, so why would he judge any other living creature for being born the way they were born.
Biscuit contracted an evil intestinal parasite when he was a few weeks old, living in a rescue shelter. As a result, he spent many weeks unable to keep food in his body long enough for the food to nourish him. He isn't as smart as our other cats, he is easily confused, but he is very loving.
We have six cats, 1 orange male with a tale, one orange male without a tail; 1 tortie shell female with a tail, 1 tortie shell female without a tail; one mostly black, but with several white spatterings here and there, female with a tail, 1 black and white male with no tail.
Our cats range in age from 10 years old down to 7 months old. They play together, eat together, sleep together in peace.
How about we humans give that a try?
You and me, baby, ain't nothin but mammals, but we humans are supposedly more intelligent than other mammals. I'm beginning to doubt the truth in that theory.
If the so-called "lesser" mammals can treat each other with love, respect, why can't the ones of us walking erect, with thumbs, do the same?
Let's all ponder on that.
