New York Times - "Sorry, Fido, It’s Just a Guy Thing"

"As a writer on adventuresofacitygirl.blogspot.com put it: “Single men and cats are like a burger and broccoli. Separately they are okay, but together it just seems off.”"

"Stacy Mantle, the founder of Petsweekly.com, a magazine for pet lovers, said that men are becoming more “cat literate” because they themselves are evolving."

"“Only intelligent, aware, caring men love cats,” one reader said" (Exactly)

"They are quick to point out other well-known macho cat owners: Ernest Hemingway, Mark Twain, Victor Hugo and Marlon Brando, who reportedly found a stray cat on the set of “The Godfather” and incorporated it into a scene." ("What's the matter with you? Is this what you've become, some Hollywood finnochio that cries like a woman?")

"Single men were also almost as likely as single women to break a friendship rather than lose their cat, and would consider choosing their cat over their partner." (Later, Helena Bonham Carter!)
