I'm not ashamed to confess that I'm a cat person. I love my cat, and I know he misses me while I'm away at school because when I come home, he doesn’t stop following me around, wanting my attention and affection. To anyone who says that cats don't care about their owners, you're wrong.
I know that dog lovers everywhere are judging me HARD for writing this article, but please hear me out: cats are just misunderstood, and the fact that I consider myself a cat person doesn't mean that I don't love dogs, too. I have both cats and dogs as pets; I love both, but I simply appreciate cats more than most dog lovers. I think many dog lovers hate to admit that at the end of the day, many of us have a lot in common with our adorable little feline friends. To prove my point, here are a few cute stories of lovable cats who aren't too different from ourselves.
1. We all just want a comfy, quiet place to nap, like this tiny kitten.
Not to mention that avoiding contact with people while trying to nap is always a plus, too. This kitten found both of these things inside this tissue box, even though her owner was scared half to death when she was nowhere to be found for several hours.
2. We get grumpy at times, too.
This cat doesn’t care that she isn't baby Jesus. This cat also doesn't care that she doesn't belong in a nativity scene. She's just tired and wants a place to rest, and nobody should try to make her get up.
3. We don't always make the best decisions when we are scared or stressed.
When we get scared or stressed out, we are sometimes not likely to make the best decisions, just like this family pet who bolted from his owners during the California wildfires. Luckily, he was reunited with his family, as you can see by the happiness of the children in this photo.
4. We love food.
If you're like me, you're probably just a little jealous of this iconic duo of kittens who can ring a bell and get treats whenever they want. Now the question is, are these cats trained, or do these cats have their owners trained?I must’ve forgotten to me
5. Even though we sometimes enjoy being alone doing absolutely nothing, spending time with best friends is pretty great, too.
This cat loves travelling the world with his owners and his unlikely best friend: a giant canine. What better companion to balance out a cat's occasional grumpiness than a happy, energetic dog? If you're an introvert like me, you are this cat, and this dog is your extroverted best friend.
To every “dog-person” reading this article, I hope the stories of these adorable cats at least make you think about reconsidering your unfair opinions towards our innocent, misunderstood feline friends. Give these poor kittens a chance, and I'm sure you will appreciate them more than you ever thought you would.
