30 Things Only Cat Lovers Will Understand

30 Things Only Cat Lovers Will Understand

Yes, we talk to our cats. And yes, they understand.

If you're a true cat lady, you probably know this already, as does everyone around you. But there's nothing wrong with a little reassurance that you're actually a cat whisperer.

1. Your cats are your fur babies.

2. You miss your cats more than your family when you're away from home.

3. In fact, you make your family members put the cat on FaceTime with you.

So you can tell them how much you miss them, and that you'll be home soon.

4. You always say goodbye to your cats when you leave the house.

And tell them that you'll be back soon!

5. When you get home, the first thing you do is announce you're home to your cats.

6. When you get invited to someone's house for the first time, the first thing you ask is whether they have a cat.

7. The first thing you do when you get to that new person's house is look for their cat.

That's why I came over!

8. Every time you hear about new kittens, you want to adopt them all.

And then you get sad when you realize you can't, because you already have too many.

9. Making the bed is always an adventure.

10. As is cleaning the house.

11. You constantly have to refill the cat food bowl because if it's not full, it's basically empty.

12. You frequently find your cat just hanging out in the sink.

13. And other weird places around the house.

14. You're a pro at getting your cat out of situations it got itself into.

This includes getting them out from under the couch, and getting their claws un-stuck from the curtains.

15. You're used to coming home to things broken.

And your cat trying very hard to look extremely innocent.

16. You know the only reason you would buy cat beds or toys is so your cats can play in the boxes they come in.

17. There's no such thing as privacy in your house.

What is it with cats and bathrooms? The world may never know...

18. You actually get into fights with your cats.

19. You own at least one laser pointer.

Endless entertainment.

20. You know the difference between the "right" and "wrong" cat food.

Non-cat owners will never understand.

21. Your cat tends to change up the kind of food it likes.

22. It's impossible to read without being interrupted.

23. Or work on the computer.

Every time.

24. Or do anything really, without being interrupted by your fur babies.

25. That includes sleeping.

26. You don't even try to bring plants or flowers into the house.

The choice is yours.

27. When you finally give into your cat begging, and you give it a piece of your food, it goes untouched.

They only want food that they steal from you!

28. You consider a night hanging out at home with your kitties a night well spent.

29. Even though your home is covered in cat fur.

No matter how frequently you clean it. At this point, it's embedded in your clothes and your furniture. It's fine. We're fine.

30. You own at least five of these.

And you wouldn't have it any other way! You wouldn't give up your kitties for anything.

I Never Thought I'd Be A Cat Person Yet Here We Are

Pepino came along and everything changed...


It all started about a year ago, my great grandma became sick and was unable to stay in her apartment at the assisted living facility. She had to leave her cat behind. My sister stepped up and would go to her apartment every day to feed and pet the cat. After 3 days of being with Pepino, she came home an emotional wreck and told my parents that we absolutely had to take the cat in.

My dad is NOT a cat person at all and was very skeptical of this idea seeing as though we already had a dog. After a week of begging, it was decided the cat would come live with us "temporarily". He was very shy at first and didn't leave the small room that was once used as our playroom. As weeks passed he would venture out into other rooms downstairs and became more social with the family.

Now, I have failed to mention that when we were given this cat, he was 22 pounds. My Nanny had dementia and would forget she fed him, so he ate a lot of cat food... and bacon. He has since been put on a diet and has lost weight. He now roams the house like the king he thinks he is. He loves my sister the most out of all of us and when she moves out, he will be going to live with her.

Pepino has quite the personality, which I didn't think was possible for a cat. My great grandma used to tell us that he was a special cat, that she had never experienced a cat with this much attitude and character. We never really understood what she was talking about, but now we all get it. He always wants food, he knows 10 p.m. is treat time, he knows my sister's morning routine, and he will have full on conversations with people. I have a video of Emily cooking soup. Pepino is meowing like crazy and she just keeps telling him that cats can't eat soup.

If Emily is late for 10 p.m. treats, he will walk up to her, meow, and paw at her until she gets up to get the box of treats. Pepino also thinks he can eat the dog's food, which has become quite a problem and now they both need to be monitored during their dinner time. If you know my family at all, you know that we all have a ton of nicknames, Pepino is no exception to this rule! Within weeks of living with us, he had developed a list of nicknames, the most popular being Pino and Ween (which stems from Pino Weeno).

This cat has come to mean the world to me. When we lost my great grandma a few months ago, Pepino was a great source of comfort for me. I spent a lot of time hugging him and even crying near him. It was nice to still have a piece of her heart with us... even if it was in the form of a cat. Being at college I find myself missing the cutie, especially when I went to a cat cafe close to campus. Receiving pictures of him sleeping on all the pillows or standing in the window sill reminds me of how excited I am to see him in just one short week. I never thought a cat would make such an impact on my life, but Pepino snuck his way into my heart and he is here to stay.
