Here is a short story for you all. (and unfortunately true)
I went to my friends house the other day and we were watching a movie on her couch. After about 10 minutes, her dumb cat walks downstairs and jumps on my lap. She starts laughing, overly amused by the situation, and starts ranting on how her cat was feeling "protective of her" and "demonstrating its dominance" because I was around. So I was thinking to myself, "you assume all this cuz some dumb cat jumped on my lap? Im pretty sure he just wanted some damn food or me to rub his head." However, I didn't say anything because trying to convince a "cat person" that a cat is just like any other animal is like trying to convince a pot head that pot shouldn't be legalized. (btw it should)
So anyway, the cat soon leaves, and comes back about 10 minutes later. It then continues to meow consistently for about 15 minutes while scratching the carpet and the door to the basement. So i ask my friend if the cat needs anything and she keeps telling me no and that the cat is just acting weird because I am around and its "territorial" and stupid stuff like that. Like she knows exactly what this cat is thinking. The fn Sigmund Freud of cats!
So after meowing and scratching crap for 20 minutes, this cat goes into a corner, and takes a pee right on the carpet while looking at me dead in the eye the whole time. So i go, "wtf i told you your cat needed to go out." And she replied, "omg, he must be so stressed that you are on his favorite couch, you should leave."
So i left her and her dumb cat and haven't talk to them since. So now I ask you guys, am i right in thinking that this girl is absolutely crazy and I should never talk to her again? (btw that's my plan right now) Or, am I over reacting, and she is right in doing what she did because the cat was there first and cats do have feelings just like people? So please let me know what you think about the situation and what I should do about it
