Since I am very allergic, the princess has not seen too many cats in her short life. However, she has not met a dog that she didn't LOVE.
Recently we went over to a friend's house for dinner. He is a major cat person and has a kitty. When Fiona first spotted the cat she was very interested in this furry creature. I'm sure in her eyes it looked just like a dog and dogs are fun to play with. A little later she was sitting on my lap and the cat walked by, looked at Fiona, and meowed.
You would have thought the cat looked like this.
Because Fiona did this and climbed me like a tree.
She was scared silly and wouldn't remove her face from my shoulder anytime the cat was near. She would settle back down and then the cat would walk by or meow and Fiona would start crying and freaking out all over again. I know I shouldn't be as amused by my daughter's terror as I was. Honestly, I didn't think she would really discriminate much between dogs and cats. She LOVES dogs, so I figured that love would transfer to cats. Not so much.
Apparently, the girl has no love of cats. It is a sad day for her Daddy.
