You've entirely missed my point. I am not speaking about breeder vs shelter. I am talking about someone who gets a pet for the wrong reasons.

Choosing a pet, regardless of breed or source, should not be based on a shortcoming the human has, that the human thinks the cat will fix. That's a heavy load to put on an animal and the cat is doomed to failure.

If the OP feels s/he has bad habits, she should work on fixing them herself, not rely on an animal to do it. The cat will not cure any bad habit, but will most likely be blamed for not succeeding.

You call me presumptuous but I've been around on line pet forums a long time. The original post is a classic of it's kind.
