Letter: To all the cat haters

To the Editor:

The story printed on dogs versus cats by TR Kerth was just his opinion and came across to the public as him hating cats, or maybe not even owning a cat himself. Cats are just as loving and smart, and they do know their owners. Felix retrieves milk rings, brings his favorite mouse toy to us to toss and greets us at the door when we come home. Also, cats do sense when their owners are sick.

How about the cat that saved the toddler from a neighbor’s dog attacking him while riding on his tricycle? The footage was documented by a home security camera system and later shared on TV and YouTube. The news went worldwide over Dewey, the library cat in Spencer, Iowa. I think Mr. Kerth should do his homework before printing which pet is smarter.

How about the horse that visits the dying at nursing homes? Animals are amazing, and they love back. They even sense the cat haters!
