A cartoon about how to use animals to find the good guys.

Compatibility begins in the kennel. Does your choice of pet also determine who you will choose as a mate, and how you will get along? After all, we choose animals that surround us to express our personalities and dreams. And, finally, is this a cat cartoon, or a dog cartoon?

Personally, I prefer to date dog-owners, but I also have friends who are rabbit-owners, bird-owners, and, err, cat-owners, if you can actually own a cat.

What have you noticed about people with their pets?
