This cat and dog found the meaning of life. What they did next was amazing…

Jesus, what have we become?

My Facebook is littered with dogs fetching beer (admittedly cute, and handy if you like beer + you’re lazy) and barking along to one of the Biebs’ many hits…

…and cats – like when they’re surprised by another cat/electrical device/their owners coming home early, or when they do something that shows people who’s boss (I’ll give you a clue – it’s the cat – guys, cats are the boss, OK?) or, hell, even when they’re just playing with wool (aww cute)…

All this is fine, but it seems that people can’t be arsed endorsing or linking to anything substantial anymore. A quick scroll down my Facebook feed reveals countless ‘likes’ for these beer-fetching, wool-chasing pets and little else. Occasionally I’ll see support for a written piece – sigh, it’s on ‘how to tell which city you SHOULD have been born in’…

Hey guys, I like cats, dogs and general variety pap as much as the next person, but are we already finished with the pursuit of something better? Are we done thinking? Are we done reflecting on life and what it actually means to be alive? I hope we’ve not resigned ourselves to the ‘junk food’ of reading material because life is amazing. It’s not perfect, but it’s such a mysterious mess of good luck, bad luck, sadness and joy, for which there is no sure-fire recipe. Best of all, we get to make it up as we go and dream of better things.

But that’s the point, we should be dreaming! Thinking. Laughing. Cats and dogs are great, but they can’t be the wallpaper of our lives, surely? Yeah, I’m having a whinge here – and rightfully so. Where’s our fucking passion? Why can’t we talk about things that matter? Real things!? Hell, let’s just talk about ‘things’ in general (anything!), even the embarrassing moments of our lives that we could only possibly laugh about afterwards?

Make no mistake, I love the cute things in life, but life isn’t just cute. It’s agonising, glorious, hilarious and at times terrifying. Let’s talk about all that stuff, too…

For now though, I leave you with my family dog, Rocky. What a cutie :-)
