Cats! And What They Don’t Have To Worry About

TinnyTo make sure your day might be better or stay better, here is a cat post. These fluffy things deserve a spotlight now and then, even though they’d probably hide in a sock drawer if we physically tried that. Instead, I will write about them. Here are 6 things cats don’t have to worry about; accompanied by that depiction of a lovely fluffy.

  1. Shoe sizes

Or any sizes of clothing, for that matter. Even though some people dress up their cats, something I do not do, there is little to worry about when it comes to sizes. Even if there are size worries, that’s because we insist that they need to wear things. Silly humans.

  1. Paying rent

Many cats live in homes that we pay for. We pay all expenses that they need. Cats don’t even understand the idea of trade or monetary systems. They don’t need a salary, a job and they don’t have bills to pay.

  1. Bedtimes

The lucky fluffballs just sleep when and where they desire. One cat I know (she’s basically my cat but lives with my parents still) who sleeps in the weirdest places and on weird objects. Of course, there are the mainstream boxes she uses. But she is also found sleeping atop plants, in fruit baskets and the ultimate oddity; in the dishwasher…

  1. An education

Cats don’t need a university, even though a cat food company disagrees as they published commercials called ‘Kitten Kollege’. I highly suggest watching them for entertainment purposes, even though they don’t align with my point here. Cats don’t need to figure out what they want to do with their life. They just ‘are’. All of them are cats and that’s all there is to it. Their mothers teach them everything they need to know and instinct tells them the rest.

  1. Cleaning up their room

Cats don’t own things. The most they may ‘own’ is a certain windowsill that the dominant diva cat declared her own. They don’t own toys and such that they keep in a separate room like human children. What little they do interact with, we clean up for them. There are no mother cats that tell them to go clean their room.

  1. Interior design

Even if cats do decide a portion of a place is theirs, they don’t have places such as IKEA that are trying to tell them what their home should look like. They don’t need to install bathrooms and kitchens and then buy matching paintings, plants and blankets for literally everything in there (the bane of my wallet’s existence).

Why You Should Date A Cat Lady

First off, I’d like to quickly explain why I wrote this piece. I admit, I am indeed classifiable as a cat lady myself. This article is not here to try to persuade some lonely man to come to my front door because he thinks a cat lady seems like a great thing now because of this post. No, no. I’m simply trying to send such people onwards to my single cat lady friends. So here’s a guide for men that are contemplating dating a cat lady!

1. She’s Responsible

A cat won’t feed itself! Well, that’s not entirely true, but in modern society, many people keep their cats indoors. That means the owner needs to provide water and food for their feline companions. There is also the litterbox that needs cleaning and various cat breeds require regular brushing to keep their fluff optimally fluffy. If a gal can care for a walking ball of fur then she can likely take care of a man, too.

2. She’s Independent

They say that pets reflect their owners or vice versa. Cats are very independent creatures, unlike canine creatures. Cats are well able to take care of themselves. The lady that adopted one of these beings is likely to be very independent herself. She can provide for herself and organize her life.

3. She’s Full of Love

Have you ever noticed a cat lady looking at a cat, whether it be her own cat or just a random cat on the street? There is an endearing look in her eyes. I can guarantee you that if you manage to steal the heart of a cat lady, she’ll give you an equally loving look.

4. She’s Affectionate

This one is possibly a ‘hidden’ trait. I, for example, would not admit this one too easily to the world but even I agree. One of the things a cat lady enjoys is cuddling her feline friend. Likewise, she’ll like to cuddle her man. Just remember that you’re going to have to share this love with her cat.

5. She Keeps Things Clean

Cats are very clean animals. As stated above, cats and their owners often share traits. Most cat ladies I know (including my perfectionist self) like to keep their home tidy and clean. In my case, I don’t make even the carpets shimmer, but I make sure it’s very welcoming and livable in my home.

6. She Won’t Mind Being Alone

Cat ladies have their furry friends for company. Therefore, it’s fine if you leave her alone with her cat. Many of us will actually appreciate an evening by ourselves once in a while. So go ahead and go out now and again. She won’t mind.

7. She’s Probably Creative

Introverts are more likely to have a cat than extroverts. Extroverts will look for the company of other people while an introvert finds a cat just as pleasant if not more so. Many introverts are creative or exclusive thinkers because they don’t spend all their time and energy on interacting with other people. They tend to think about situations when they are alone. This causes them to develop creative thinking patterns.

8. She Doesn’t Mind Silence

I have those friends that feel that they have to talk to me all the time. By that I mean; all the time! When I feel that a pause would be very appropriate, they fill it with something. Personally, I like people that are able to be comfortably quiet with me; just like my cat can be.
