Having a Baby vs. Having a Cat

Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal brings us a comic that graphically contrasts taking care of a baby in comparison to taking care of a cat. It doesn't tell us anything we don't already know, even if you only have second-hand knowledge, but it is hilarious to someone who's been there, done that, and is now a confirmed cat lady.

He doesn't mention the biggest difference: taking care of a baby is intense, but temporary, while a cat is mostly the same its whole life. Inman left out the part that spans about two decades, in which you are constantly confronting a child with brand-new problems you never encountered before as they grow and develop. No doubt Inman will have things to say about that as time passes. -via Matthew Inman
