You Want Cute? I'll Give You Cute.
I'm not a cat person (or an animal person, even), but I have a soft spot for the Boyf's parents' cat. Don't tell anyone this, but I've been known to sing Sinatra's "Mack the Knife" to that precious kitty, except replacing "Mack" with the cat's name. Yes, about that professional help you've mentioned: I am seeking it.
UPDATE: Dammit, "Mack the Knife" is Bobby Darin's song, not Sinatra's. Thanks, Neil, for the correction. Harrumph, I hate being wrong.
