If there is one thing that my home makes evident about me (aside from my love of Zelda) it is the love I have for cats! My feline friends are in picture frames and I have statues of their brethren. I even have a self-designed mug of a cat. I always pick this mug when I drink tea or hot cocoa. I’ve been considering making a few more to make up a bit of a collection of cat mugs. Thoughts?
Anyways, cats are a wonderful pet to have. Though I am sad to announce that I currently have none since my landlord doesn’t allow them in my apartment, I have grown up with them. My family has always had cats. I vow to have a handful of fluffies again soon enough!
Cats are quiet
Our felines can lurk around your house without you even knowing. They move on silent paws. They are the true hunters of the night. These little ninjas make sure you can still live in peace and quiet. Though some will occasionally meow incessantly in order to be obeyed. So I suppose we ought to keep them happy!
Cats are cuddly
Of course, not all cats are cuddly. It depends on their personality and the way that they have been raised, whether they will like human contact. The cats in my life like to be affectionate. Tintel likes to sit or sleep on my lap. Mike likes any kind of cuddling and wants to be as close to your body as he possibly can (going so far as to plop down on the floor in front of you so you will pick him up). Gabber doesn’t mind lounging on people too and being petted. Should I get more cats in my life, I will be sure to raise them to love cuddling since it is an absolute delight! Tintel would often crawl into my bed with me at night and sleep with me until morning. I miss that still.
Cats are clean
Cats tend to be neat animals. They will clean up after themselves and will even clean themselves. What little people might need to do is clip their nails (if needed), shave them or brush them. Though the former two activities might not make your cat too happy, the latter is often a bonding experience.
Cats are independent
Unlike dogs, who need everything to be done for them, cats can live out their lives with little attendance. Feed them, clean out the litterbox, give them some attention now and then, perhaps brush them and make sure they are healthy by observing them is really all you need to do. It leaves time for other activities (or just more cuddles).
Cats are generally soft
Let’s be honest, the simple fact that most cats are fluffy is absolutely alluring. Even random cats on the street make me stop and attempt to pet them. I do this even when I should be rushing off to class. Cats will be the bane to my grades.
Cats have amazing eyes
The variety in color and shape of said eyes does not take away from their brilliance. There is such depth in them. I always feel like I can truly see a cat’s soul when looking at the creature’s eyes. For example, Tintel has a very strong gaze but she can look at you with kindness and love too. Mike on the other hand, always carries sweet, twinkly eyes on him; a sign that he always wants to be hugged. Gabber, the more introverted of the three, has calmer eyes.
The bond with cats can be magical
I can honestly say that Tintel is one of my best friends. I don’t go out and party with her. I don’t ask her for advice about life. I confide in her though and I confess to her. No matter what I do in life, she will still love me and enjoy being around me. I might not be pretty or perfect, but she only cares that I care. If ever I was sad, her being near me always made me feel better. Her love has always been a divine gift, in my eyes.
