Animal conversation

A dog and a cat were having a conversation about their homes and the comforts of their lives.


The dog said, "You know, I've really got it made here. I have a master who feeds me, cleans up my litter, and provides me with a nice comfortable home.

My master must be a god."


The cat replied, "I've got it pretty good myself. I have a master who feeds me, cleans up my litter and provides me with a nice comfortable home.

You know, I must be a god!"


It appears that the dog really appreciates the good things received from its master.

On the other hand, this cat feels self-important and expects royal treatment.
