And they’re off!
We race all kinds of animals. There’s horse racing, dog racing, ostrich racing, rabbit racing, and probably gorilla racing somewhere in the world. If you’re wondering why there’s no such thing as cat racing, one look at this picture will tell you exactly why.
Cats don’t take orders from nobody. If it wants to run, it’ll run when it’s good and ready. Some human hollering, “RUN!” at a cat will do nothing but irritate it. And when a cat gets irritated, it gets clawy. When cats get clawy, we have to find a bottle of hydrogen peroxide to clean our wounds.
