For the Love of Cats!

My cats are my happiness. Cats are my favorite animal, actually. I have two of them. I love having their furry little bodies roam around the house, day and night. Even when they try to trip me at night when I get up to use the bathroom. They are just precious to me, I couldn’t live a life without them.

I’ve had cats my whole life. I’m never without one. I had 3 at one point. Three isn’t a lot but I’m going to be the crazy cat lady when I get older. I see it in my future. It’s my plan, in fact. There isn’t anything wrong with that either. Why should I be ashamed of my love for kitties?

I don’t understand people’s hatred of cats. Is it because cats remind people of their own faults and shortcomings? Is it because cats demand respect? Is it because cats don’t take crap? There is nothing about cats that deserve the hate. They can make messes when they get angry, but don’t people do the same thing in a way? People are just capable of using words and insults instead. Cats can be finicky, but aren’t we all? Don’t we want attention or space and as soon as we get it we want the opposite sometimes? Cat’s eat until they throw up. But people eat until they can’t move all the time. Cat’s like to remind us to keep our egos in check. As the quote above says “nobody owns a cat”. Maybe that bothers people.

Cats have taught me so much about life and in some ways have helped me understand myself. Like, it’s okay to want to be alone sometimes. I need to be alone a lot and people will try to guilt me for that need. My cats need to be alone often times, and it doesn’t mean they don’t love me or that they don’t ever want to be loved. It just means that they too need to decompress. They just don’t need constant attention. Maybe someone else has a cat that needs constant attention. That’s fine too, because it shows that everything, just like everyone, has different personalities and needs. Each difference, and cat, should be respected.

I love my babies. They are my life. They are sweet and annoying and mean and loving. They know I feed them and love them and they give me back everything that they can give, just like me. I need to go cuddle my cats, if they let me.
