Bad Reputation

We knew what kind of behavior that the cats had, especially when it was about small animals. Some of us might prefer dogs, and it might be a pity since cats could be adorable too. A lot of people who loved dogs would reason out the bad reputation of the cat. However, people who owned cats would debunk that ill reputation and give us a better reason to have them.
