This is my brother Spike. When I first met him, I thought he was a dog. I had never met a cat before and I have been around dogs much smaller than him. Spike is twenty pounds. I did not realize it at the time, but Spike did not like me when we first met. I thought he was being playful when he growled and swatted at me. I pounced and bounced in front of him waiting for him to play. I could not figure out why he would not play with me. I kept thinking to myself, "What a weird dog. He does not even know how to play." My parents kept calling him a cat. Now I know cats are very different from dogs. Spike likes me now. We take naps together all the time.
