3 Reasons Cats Deserve More Credit

They might be assholes, but they're your assholes.

There are dog people and there are cat people. Personally, I think both are great, but there are so many people that hate on cats. Reasons being they won't save you in a fire or they are assholes and knock things off the table just to make you frustrated. Yes, cats are assholes, but they're the chillest animals to have.

1. They Don't Require Attention Constantly

Not to bring down dogs, but if you go to the kitchen, they go with you. You have food? They sit there and wait for a scrap to fall. Or you have to get up in the middle of the night to let them out. Cats do what they want.

They don't need to constantly be around you. They'll come take a nap in your proximity, but you'll barely ever see them in your face begging for your pasta. Sometimes they do want your food but it's cute because they're cats! Though they don't normally like human food! Also, they go to the litter box. "That's gross," you might say. Okay, but if you clean it everyday it won't smell.

Personally, I'd rather clean a litter box and noon than get up at 1 a.m. for a potty break.

2. They're Caring (shocker)

While they might not save you in a fire, they do care about you. Cats will purr when they're happy, it's a common fact. But did you know they purr when they're healing or when they're nervous? Not only does it soothe them, some say they can actually help themselves heal by purring. So, when you're laying in bed sicker than a dog (pun intended), they will come purr and rub themselves on you. They are trying to make you feel better the way they make themselves feel better.

3. They're Assholes

Yeah, they will knock your decorations off your coffee table so they can have a new lounge spot. Yes, it's annoying. Have you ever watched a cat take their paw and gently push something off the table? It's adorable. It's even funny when you tell them "don't do it" and they'll act like they won't, just to push it off the table a minute later and act like they didn't know how that happened.

All animals should be given a chance. We can all have bad pets in general, but don't keep your heart closed. You might rescue a kitten one day and fall in love. My mom said, "The only good cat is a dead one." Now, we have three little tigers that run our house.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.
