    To be fair, that’s not a complete picture.

    Add the automatic massage module to the middle bed, and you’re a bit closer….

    Humans are not a bed with hard, inaccessible headboards. People are beanbag chairs.

    My only pedantic quibble is that I think cats only see the color blue.

    Not quite: the red bed should hold a can-opener for it to be purr-fect.

    Seems about right.

    But, I do think cats love people. They love people to feed them; love people to open doors for them…

    Cat love is fickle and self-centered. Cats are the cow birds of mammals, taking advantage of our sloppy maternal/paternal nurturing instincts.

    Regardless, I think they are great, even if I feel I know that it is just my misplaced instincts making me say that.
