I AM NOT QUALIFIED FOR THIS.
I am not qualified to give you advice on anything. I have no psychological training. This whole blog is just my thoughts and is based on my reality. If any of it works for you, run with it. If it doesn’t, find something that does and forget you ever read this. Or just be entertained by my silly ideas. Just don’t assume I know what I’m talking about.
I am also not qualified to speak on the true nature of any other mammal. I have no veterinary training. I will spend a great deal of this blog ridiculously oversimplifying the nature of dogs, cats, and squirrels and assigning them anthropomorphic qualities they don’t, actually, possess in the interest of amusing myself and, with any luck, you. I may very well insult your favorite species in the pursuit of humorous anecdotes to support my silly theories. I mean no harm or insult. I’m not talking about your dog, don’t worry. Or cat. Or squirrel.
I DO NOT AIM TO CHANGE YOUR LABEL.
Nothing I tout here should be construed as an attempt to convince you that you are not a “dog person” or a “cat person” or a “squirrel person” (really?). Love the animals you love. This ain’t about that. I am using those phrases differently here.
It’s about a perception of the world, and I use cute, fuzzy animals to illustrate it. If what you do would make me call you a Cat Person, I’m not suggesting you give up your Retriever for a Persian. I’m playing with mammalian analogies for fun, not claiming you should change who you are because of how you think or anything. I wouldn’t dare.
