Valentine’s Day is in just over a week, and I’m single yet again. Some may expect me to be a bit bummed that I don’t have anyone to celebrate it with, but I’m actually happy. Why? Because cats exist.
You see, I’m actually a crazy cat lady in training. I feel like I can’t call myself a full fledged cat lady until I’m at least 40. Perhaps a bit older, it’s been awhile since I’ve read the crazy cat lady training handbook. All I know is that if there is a cat around, I will devote all my attention to it. I’m also a huge fan of cat merchandise like this super rad dress! I’ve styled it on the blog before, but I felt it was necessary to share it again for Valentine’s Day. If any of my readers are substituting a boyfriend for a cat, this post is for you because I’m going to explain all the reasons why cats are better than dudes.
They don’t make a lot of noise
Apart from the occasional meow, cats are very quiet creatures. You can’t expect this behavior from a dude, as they are typically quite loud.
They will always let you pick the show/movie
Want to watch Gilmore Girls for the fourth time this week? Cats don’t care! They’ll just snuggle up beside you and happily watch whatever is on.
Cats never judge you
You could be lazing around in sweats without any makeup and your cat will still look at you lovingly. You could be crying over the Titanic (again) and your cat will comfort you. Cats rule, boys drool.
They are ALWAYS cute
Their paws, their whiskers, their nose, their tail…OMG. Not to mention the way they chase around the laser and rub against your legs and literally everything else they do!
Their purrs are therapeutic
Fact: Cat purrs are not only relaxing, but also healing. There’s a certain vibration or decimal they purr at that can soothe headaches and other ailments. Boys tend to just cause the headache in the first place.
They always want to help you with whatever you’re doing
Even though this might end up being counterproductive, they still want to help you in your daily activities! Are you making the bed? They’ll stand on the sheets for you to keep them in place! Folding laundry? They’ll keep the clothes in the laundry basket warm. Writing a blog post? They’ll walk on your keyboard to add their own addition! Cats are just so dang helpful.
At the end of the day, they will always make you happy
Boys are frustrating, cats are not. The end.
