10 Reasons Cats Are The Best Type Of Pet

If you don’t love cats then you’ve either never owned one or you’re lying to yourself

10 Reasons Cats Are The Best Type Of Pet
Emily Motta

Cats are perhaps the best pets to own, though I may be just slightly biased. After all, I do have three gorgeous calicos: Patches, Mittzy, and Callie. I don't really get why they don't get as much love as dogs. I mean, they're just as loving and full of personality.While I don't really have any issues with dogs, I just definitely prefer cats to dogs. I think it's because dogs are too hyperactive for me. Cats, on the other hand, are much calmer.

Still, cats deserve to be loved just as much as dogs. And they definitely don't deserve to be treated cruelly, like the one time someone told me he just shot them just for fun when I told him about mine (btw, that kind of unnecessary cruelty to animals is a sign of being a sociopath). If you say you don't like cats, then you're either lying to yourself or you've never even owned one. Here are just 10 of the reasons that cats are the best type of pets.

1. They’re super cute (and photogenic)

Emily Motta

I mean, just look at Mittzy. Isn’t that the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen? If you said “No,” then you’re lying to yourself.

2. They’re full of personality

You can clearly see Callie's playful personality shining through this pic.

3. They let you know what they like and what they don’t

Emily Motta

Mittzy is clearly letting me know how she feels about spoons.

4. They guard your house

Emily Motta

Who needs a guard dog when there’s Patches laying in front of the door. Obviously going to stop every robber in their tracks.

5. They like trying new things (sometimes)

Emily Motta

Yoplait yogurt is Callie’s favorite thing in the entire world. She comes running every time she sees it and will sit and beg for it.

6. They’re always down for a nap.

Emily Motta

Doesn’t it just make you want to lay down and take a nap with them?

7. They take after you in so many ways

Emily Motta

Laying down while eating? That’s totally something I would do.

8. They’re super smart

Olivia Motta

How many cats do you know that can figure out how to play with a fidget spinner. (She also knows how to “work” an old sewing machine by pressing down on the pedal).

9. They help you clean

And by help you clean, I mean lay down on the thing you literally just cleaned and look at you innocently.

10. Literally, everything they do is adorable and you love them so much

Emily Motta

I mean, a cat wearing an FFA scarf? Admit it, that’s adorable.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
