The Difference Between Cats and People

My reaction when I notice a possibly-serious symptom in my cat:

"ZOMG Lut my cat is dying we have to get her to the vet NOW!!!!!!!!!1!!!11" *cat is taken to vet in under an hour*

My reaction when I notice the exact same symptom in myself:

"Huh. Well, it's probably nothing."

*six weeks later*

"This is still happening.  I should probably call my doctor."

*two weeks later, finally calls doctor*

There are reasons for this beyond "I hate making appointments", but the moral is still that I should probably take at least as good care of myself as I do my pets. -.-
