Babies are great. They just laugh and grin and clap indulgently while you dance around like a squid having electro-shock and sing off key at the top of your voice.
Cats, however? They sit there staring at you with no limit to their undisguised contempt. “Stupid Humans.”, they think.
Then they scratch you when you try and dance with them.
Babies are a much better option, I think.
