One of our cats inspires a similar love-hate relationship. He’s into everything, constantly yowling to be let out, pees in shoes and on other things left on the floor when denied admittance to the outdoors forthwith, and uses our baseboards to sharpen his claws. Still, we let him live. Indoors. Even cuddle him. Like Poki, here.
All animals except man know that the ultimate of life is to enjoy it.Samuel Butler
