In the grand design of life, the differences between the sexes becomes quite apparent. Take for instance my cats. One female, the other an affable and sparky tom-kitten. (The female his nurturing mother) She is cautious and very compliant; a universal feminine trait I believe.
Whilst the tom, well not so much. There is a bookshelf above my computer which he has quite arbitrarily decided is going to be his bed. PERIOD !! After knocking down my pc tool box, shredding the kleenex box, and clearing away various other non-essentials, he snuggles in, keeping a watchful eye on my PC antics.
When I replace the items cleared out, why he simply returns and rearranges the furnishings to his delight. After the 3rd or 4th such scene, I realized his masculine traits of dominance and adventure where to be reckoned with.
Did I mention he has accompanied me on a lake kayak outing.
Well I rest my case ... and thoroughly enjoy my new friend.
