I have been asked many times by people, "If you could be any animal in the world, what would it be?" only for the inquirer to find it a rather futile exercise in my scratching my mind for the bird that I find most interesting at the moment. Well, if one were to have asked me, "If you could be any pet in the world, what would it be?" I most definitely have an answer for them: a beach cat. They are only the most chillar animals on the face of the planet.
