This could also be called “Why Engineers Should Not Have Cats.”

I’m sure this will help someone and also disturb others. I’m sorry, I just can’t stand cats. It’s not so much the cat though. It’s more the giant whelps I get when scratched and the incessant amount of hair that spills out of their bodies. Hairless, clawless cats would be fine. I would also suggest to the guys that it may help you get a girlfriend, as long as she doesn’t swell up from cat scratches.
