Cats are known for their attitudes and sass, not for being "man's best friend" like dogs are, but cat people appreciate them for that and love them even when they're being a royal pain. Everyone knows that there are certain "Classic Cat Moves" that are relatively universal for the entire cat species. Here are some of the classics:

1. The "My Child"

This is a wake-up call and a bath all rolled into one.

2. The "Gotta Catch 'Em All"

The Cat Oath: "I swear that I will not rest until I catch everything whether it is a ball on TV or a laser."

3. The "Bloated Raccoon"

4. The "Mmmbopper"

5. The "Oxygen Suppressor"

"You didn't need to breathe, right? Good. I'm just going to lay on your windpipe, then."

6. The "This is Not the Bowl You Are Looking For"


7. The "Rapid Fire

8. The "FML"

The look of pure disgust says it all...

9. The "I Can't Feel My Face When I'm...Drinking Out of Your Glass"

10. The "Hanging Out" and the "Slipping Through the Cracks"

11. The "Sneak Attack"

It's almost like a reverse Whack-A-Mole game.

12. The "What's Yours is Mine"

13. The "Oh, You Weren't Working on That, Were You?"

14. The "Clearing the Table"

15. The "Don't Question Me"

16. The "Slip Sliding Away"

17. The "Don't Stand So Close to Me"

"You think I'm just going to sit here for your ridiculous picture? Think again!"

18. The "Anything Can Be a Bed If You Try Hard Enough"

19. The "Failure to Launch"

"The rocket boosters are failing! I repeat, the boosters are failing!"

20. The "Too Lazy to Walk"

21. The "Don't Push Me"

"You're lucky my human would be upset if something happened to you..."

22. The "Slipping Through the Cracks Pt. 2"

23. The "I Like Your Face"

24. The "Hold Me Close"

25. The "Professional Sleeper"

26. The "Stay With Me"

"My human has returned from college. I will never let her leave again."

Only cat people can truly appreciate these sassy felines. Cats have such attitudes that most people don't see the love they really have for those that take care of them and show them affection, and those cat people will find these classic cat moves all the more relatable.

8 Struggles Of Being 21 And Looking 12

The struggle is real, my friends.

“You'll appreciate it when you're older." Do you know how many times my mom has told me this? Too many to count. Every time I complain about looking young that is the response I get. I know she's right, I will love looking young when I'm in my 40s. However, looking young is a real struggle in your 20s. Here's what we have to deal with:

1. Everyone thinks your younger sister or brother is the older one.

True story: someone actually thought my younger sister was my mom once. I've really gotten used to this but it still sucks.

2. You ALWAYS get carded.

Every. Single. Time. Since I know I look young, I never even bothered with a fake ID my first couple of years of college because I knew it would never work. If I'm being completely honest, I was nervous when I turned 21 that the bartender would think my real driver's license was a fake.

3. People look at your driver's license for an awkward amount of time.

So no one has actually thought my real driver's license is fake but that doesn't stop them from doing a double take and giving me *that look.* The look that says, “Wow, you don't look that old." And sometimes people will just flat out say that. The best part is this doesn't just happen when you're purchasing alcohol. This has happened to me at the movie theater.

4. People will give you *that look* when they see you drinking alcohol.

You just want to turn around and scream “I'M 21, IT'S LEGAL. STOP JUDGING ME."

5. People are shocked to find out you're in college.

If I had a dollar for every time someone had a shocked expression on their face after I told them I'm a junior in college I could pay off all of my student loan debt. It's funny because when random people ask me how school is going, I pretty much assume they think I'm in high school and the shocked look on their face when I start to talk about my college classes confirms I'm right.

6. For some reason wearing your hair in a ponytail makes you look younger.

I don't understand this one but it's true. Especially if I don't have any makeup on I could honestly pass for a child.

7. Meeting an actual 12-year-old who looks older than you.

We all know one. That random 12-year-old who looks extremely mature for her age and you get angry because life isn't fair.

8. Being handed a kids' menu.

This is my personal favorite. It happens more often than it should. The best part of this is it's your turn to give someone a look. The look that says, "You've got to be kidding me".

Looking young is a real struggle and I don't think everyone realizes it. However, with all the struggles that come with looking young, we still take advantage of it. Have you ever gone to a museum or event where if you're under a certain age you get in for a discounted price? Yeah? Well, that's when I bet you wish you were us. And kids' meals are way cheaper than regular meals so there have definitely been a couple times when I've kept that kids' menu.

So, all in all, it's not the worst thing in the world but it's definitely a struggle.

Cat Cafe Neko Heading To Bellingham Winter 2019

Look no further for feline friends. Seattle-based Neko Café is branching out to Bellingham and offering cat coffee, adoptable kitties, and a safe place for animal lovers all over the Pacific Northwest.

If you enjoy the company of animal companions and live in the Bellingham area, you're in luck. You may have heard of “Cat Cafe" from the Japanese where animal cafes have been around for decades. Fortunatley, cat cafes are expanding across the globe—even to Downtown Bellingham! The trailblazing NEKO is opening late 2019, offering adoptions as well as wine and a heck of a good time.

A cat cafe's primary goal is to spread awareness for animal adoption, rescue, and care while providing a haven for like-minded souls.

The rate is currently $11 per hour with the cats. Proceeds go to keeping the business running, and the kitties healthy and happy. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and reservations are recommended (because all of the cats are very popular and busy).

The founder of Neko, Caitlin, says she was inspired by the cat culture of Japan and Vietnam. Their love, innovation, and compassion toward animals pushed her to bring that light with her to the states. In their mission statement, she expresses the benefits of such an establishment:

“We've got coffee, beer, wine & light nibbles all in the company of CATS! We've partnered with RASKC to bring you adoptable cats of all shapes and sizes and personalities. Whether it be a happy hour after work, a private party in your very own room, or Sunday morning coffee, we've got you covered! When reservations are full in the kitty room, don't forget the cozy bar & cafe is always a great spot to chill."

Services offered include cat themed pastries, sandwiches, coffee, and games. The growing industry of cat and animal cafes decreases shelter crowding and euthanasia risk! Bellingham Humane Society is partnering with Neko to provide and care for cats in need. As Bellingham grows as a college and port city, so must our businesses. There is little doubt that Bellingham Neko will be a commercial and personal success.

Not all cats will be adoptable, as some are employees! They get paid very well in treats, so no need to worry about unfair working conditions. The cats get more vertical and horizontal space to luxuriate in and get the benefit of a community without the dangers of suburban colony life (cars, disease, overpopulation, freezing conditions... etc). The kitties are well loved and socialized and look forward to meeting you all in the late fall of 2019!

If you are looking to adopt a cat sooner than late 2019, please check out the shelters in your area before seeking “milled" animals. Although animals from kitty mills do need warm homes, they are not always at high risk for euthanasia or neglect.

NOTE: it is better to get two cats/kittens at once, and always advised never to separate a bonded pair. Consider the personality of your cat and notice signs of needing attention or apathy which could signal depressive feelings — and remember that animals do speak even though it is in a language we don't usually take time to understand.

Even if a cat appears aloof does not mean they wouldn't ask for a friend, or more space, or time outside, if they could. Animals are smarter than we give them credit for. Be vigilant. Cats can get bored, lonely, and sad. Cats need other cats just like we need other people to survive — so this cat cafe is an excellent idea for both cats and people everywhere.
