Cat People are Good People

I am a Cat Person.

PyewacketInstinctively I like cats, and I like people who like cats.  As for dogs ~ a bit of a nuisance at best, a damn nuisance most of the time.  And, some of the time I actively hate dislike dogs.

One may think that’s just a matter of taste, or have something to do with my not being brought up around dogs.  However, following some recent research about cats and their liking for boxes, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s far deeper and a lot more interesting than that.

If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.  ~  Mark Twain

I firmly believe there are Cat People, and then there are Dog People, and the two groups have very different psyche.   And it turns out that all the stereotypes about cat people are true.

Cat people like to nap a lot.  They are also smarter, more sensitive, and less conformist than other people.  Cat people don’t believe that rules apply to them.

Cat people prefer to have a small safe place they can retreat to when they feel under stress.  Cat lovers prefer solitude.

Cat people stand out from the crowd and have very distinctive personalities.

Cats and cat people are very bad when it comes to resolving conflicts, they are sensitive, neurotic, independent, and don’t obey rules.  Instead of working things out they tend to run away and hide.

Like real cats, cat people are ambush hunters, liking nothing more than lying in wait for their next target.

If cats looked like frogs we’d realise what nasty, cruel little bastards they are.  Style.  That’s what people remember.  ~  Terry Pratchett.

Van-Gogh-Starry-NightsFelines and feline people like to be cozy and warm, hating to sit around in the cold, go out in the cold, sleep in a cold bed.

And it seems that cats love circles.  In my case I much prefer spirals to circles, but circles are good too.

Perhaps the most important question to ask on a first date isn’t all that crap you get from people like eHarmony ~ instead just ask; ‘Do you prefer cats, or dogs?’

Time spent with a cat is never wasted.  ~  Colette

I know which type of woman I’d prefer.

  1. Mmmm. I never have it a thought. Until I was told “you’re just like a cat.” I hate cats. I was told “cats are territorial, you don’t like other cats in your space. It’s all normal. I love dogs. The more I read about cats I know I am one. Yes, a wonderful question to ask on a first date!!!! 🙂

  2. I KNEW you were a good man! We have 7 cats, not by design, but rather by chance, as they were all rescued from life-threatening situations. It is a challenge at times, but I wouldn’t trade a single one. And as for the boxes … yes, our fattest manages to squeeze himself into the tiniest box he can find. Boxes are part of their toy collection, as are the plastic rings from milk bottles. Good post … I enjoyed this! 🙂

      1. If they had all come at the same time, that would have been a great idea, but as it is, they range in age from 2 to 16. We even have one, the 2-year-old, who has a form of feline autism, and another who is blind. Keeps life interesting!

  3. Cute picture. I love spirals too. Not sure which animal I prefer as I don’t have any pets. But these traits sound like myself in some cases.
