According to this article, 90% of the women surveyed think "men who like cats are nicer, more caring, and more sensitive than men who don't have cats." Well, maybe so, but I think a man's ownership of a cat is more detrimental to his getting a date than owning a copy of Gone With the Wind. Bad boys don't own cats.
I like cats a lot. Growing up, there was always at least one cat in our household at any givent time. My brother's cats are really cool (my sister's cat is not, though). But I'm not planning on getting one until I'm married. I've got enough strikes against me as it is.
