You Need A Cat In Your Life | The Pro-Side Of Cat Ownership

A few weeks ago, I was at a dinner party when the subject “cat vs. dog” arose. It came up in that imminent way sensitive subjects always seem to arise in mixed company, dangling before your eyes, teasing and dangerous, Russian-roulette-style, (much like politics, religion, and race). In which, you don’t know what comment you’ll make that will inevitably offend half the guests present.

It’s a tricky game to play.

However, without the need to put down Man’s Best Friend, here are some reasons why you need a cat in your life.

Because you probably just need a cat in your life. Period.

Cats are like wild animals. When they choose you, there’s no better feeling in the world.

They talk to you. And after a while, I promise that you’ll understand what they’re saying. And you will respond.

Two words: toe beans.

There’s nothing better than coming home after a long day and snuggling up to that face.

They’ll take care of you, whether you need a laugh, or a hug, or a nice grooming. #CatsGotYoBack

They purr. (Is there anything cuter?)

They’re crazy entertaining. If only I had a dollar for every time I exclaimed to Cova, “what are you doing?!”

But yeah. Emphasis on the crazy part.

They perform cat aerobics for your benefit.

The following is one of my favorites. (Recommended to be seen while singing Tim McGraw’s, Live Like You Were Dying)

One more, I’m on a roll.

Cat’s can play dead, among other tricks like high fives and walking on a leash.

And they are indoor 24/7 pest control.

Thing is: cats have gotten a bad rep for being misunderstood, mistreated, or simply untrained.

If you give them a chance, shower them with love and guidance, you’ll have a friend for life.

Now, for the honorable GIF mentions:

  1. The sequel to this post should be “Why my cat needs a Rebekah in their life” and you “pretend” to interview your cat. Could be a great idea, could be awful. Only one way to find out!
