I accept the beauty & danger of cats!
Signing this waiver demonstrates that:
I understand that cats are wild, majestic and unpredictable creatures. By interacting with any cat, I accept the possibility that they may scratch, claw, and bite - even when they like me. Sometimes ESPECIALLY when they like me.
