Was thinking about how silly it would be to say that a cat or a dog was a failure. We could say that a cat failed to catch a bird, or a dog to catch a rabbit, but the cat is still perfectly successful being a cat.

Why are we so much harder on each other, on our kids, our friends?

Why are we so much harder on ourselves?

@Jorah searching for CatFails on Youtube tells me that no, we're just as judgemental of our pets
