Hello there human,
I really don’t care how you are doing, and I refuse to be polite enough to ask. Unlike a dog, I won’t greet your presence by wagging my tail and will just get on with what I have to say.
Many people have false notions about cats and cat lovers. If a cat has never owned you or if you don’t really appreciate us (as if we care), then there are high chances that you already think these few things:
– Girls who own cats are crazy cat ladies and psychotic in nature.
– Guys who own cats are wusses.
And you couldn’t be more wrong. Cat lovers are expressive in our own ways and sometimes it is too subtle for others to get them.
After a lot of contemplation about my humans, I have come up with 10 wonderful reasons why it is awesome to date a cat person:
1. Expectations = 0
I might not eat the new cat food my human got me and there are high chances that I will not pose for a good picture for their Instagram feed. But my human doesn’t mind. He/she has no expectations and never complains. They know how to love unconditionally.
2. They don’t require constant attention.
Me and my race like having our own space. And our humans have learned a great deal from us. They are independent, they can do their own thing. You don’t have to take care of them or nag them constantly (also if you nag them, they will ignore you, we teach them well). Staying in and chilling with no bullshit is their favorite thing to do.
3. H for Hygiene
Unlike other animals who play in their own filth, we like being clean ALL the time. You might see us licking ourselves after you have patted us, that’s YOU we are cleaning off us. Our humans follow our steps and like to be neat and clean all the time. We won’t EVER stink!
4. They are intense creatures.
Me and my human might just sit and stare the walls for hours. Thinking about the mysteries of life and contemplating. We won’t always share what we are thinking, but they are profound thoughts. You want to bark non-sense, find someone else, my human is an intellect who talks sense and science.
5. They are used to mood swings.
While serving us, they get well versed with how our moods change. I might want to scratch their sofa, but I might not want to scratch the expensive scratch toy the human got for me. And my human gets that and never complains. In fact, I think they kind of adore it.
6. They are game!
You want to chase laser lights (yes they are real), my humans are game. You want to eat more than you can and nap on the couch, they are up for it. You name it, they will do it. As I said, no complaints, no expectations, cat people are fun!
7. They can tolerate a lot of shit.
Both figuratively and literary. My human can wake up at 5 am to feed me and then at 7 am to clean up the mess I have made with the food. Their tolerance level is very high, courtesy – me!
8. They have a diploma in understanding body languages.
From arched backs to the flicker of an eye, our human read gestures quickly! We don’t need to weave stories for them, they observe us and they know what’s bothering us. If you are dating a cat lover, you know it is very true!
9. It’s scientifically proven that they are smart!
You know it is true but if you still want to bother me with a proof, a survey done on 600 students in Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, showed that cat lovers are smarter and sharper. Now who doesn’t like that?
10. They are committed.
My human never abandoned me when I was sick and I don’t know any cat lover who will do that to you. If they are in it, they are in it for life. They won’t get cold feet and run out on you. You can never trust us, but you can definitely trust our humans.
Okay now, go find yourself a cat lover – they are going to change your life. Meanwhile, I am going to wreck my human’s bean bag and then I will take a long nap on her keyboard.
