There I go generalizing again... Amber's right, cats are too idiosyncratic to stereotype.

Their energy cycles are some-up, then a lot-down. When I'm driving for the hoop in a late night session, the cats might ask for attention, but it's the kind (sitting on lap, occasional petting) that fits into my needs of the moment.
That, to me, is the great thing about cats. When we are homebodies, a cat, also a homebody, is a great companion.

Not only dog man, but golden retriever man. The last of the line died two years ago. Broke whatever heart I have. She was a loyal and unwavering friend and my constant writing companion (though she left something to be desired as a lapdog, especially when I was trying to use the computer... ).
Now I'm racing to complete the current book, so that I can take on and train up her successor(s).
