cat signal

Having a pet is somewhat akin to becoming a superhero.

For example, you instantly develop a superpower! You are able, at any stage of wakefulness or deep sleep, to recognize the sound of pre-puking coming from your animal, as well as to race across the domicile in less than four seconds and remove the animal from the couch/ bed/ worrisome proximity to something made of alpaca or leather or suede before it is able to sully it with cat barf.

This is the only way in which having a pet is vaguely related to anything superhero-esque, unless you refer to the cat's fondness for following you around the house as "having a sidekick."
