Hello, fellow cat and dog lovers! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, my new book Kitty Hearts Doggy is here to bring kitty and doggy relationship wisdom to us mere humans. I am happy to share some now. Remember, if a dog and a cat can find a way to put aside their differences, then you can forgive your partner for incorrectly folding a towel.
Bailey says: The best way to keep romance in your relationship is to make every day feel as exciting as your first date — which is quite easy to do when your average memory span is 45 minutes.
Sam says: I try not to compare his previous relationships, because it would only make me insecure. But Bailey’s first love was a metal fence, so no matter how much we lick, I know I’ll never be cold enough for him.
Gunter says: He’s a very tolerant tabby, and let’s be honest, you want someone who knows that you love them even if you occasionally try to bite their head off.
Creamsicle says: What I love about Gunter is that he’ll whine at the front door when I’m stuck outside. I used to be with a cat, and he would just stare at me blankly though the kitchen window.
Mara says: After my last cat left me for a long-term relationship with the heating vent, I wasn’t sure I could ever love again. But Mitten loves me so much that even after I get up she stays on my bed.
Mitten says: I’ve learned that love truly does mean never having to say you’re sorry, even if your partner occasionally dreams about running and kicks you in the head.
Chip says: My last relationship was with a teddy bear. But after the human said it stank like puppy slobber and washed it, we somehow just lost our connection. That’s when I noticed Duke sleeping peacefully. I love him. He’s like a chew toy that can play hard to get.
Duke says: I know Chip’s young, and that someday, he may meet an expensive pair of running shoes that he likes chewing on more than me. But let’s just see how loudly those shoes can howl at the humans whenever Chip accidentally gets locked in the garage.
