Ever felt really awkward when a dog jumps up at you to ‘make friends’?

You secretly pray for it to just leave you alone while you smile awkwardly at the owner as they praise their beloved pet for pretty much ruining your favourite pair of jeans.

Yeah. It sucks.

And then you can’t even be honest and just say you’re not keen on dogs, because it’s become socially unacceptable to not be a dog person. Like, if you don’t like dogs there must be something wrong with you. Meanwhile, cats are often associated with loneliness. More than two and you’re classed as ‘that crazy cat lady’.

But actually, here’s why it’s totally okay to be a cat person.

1. They’re much more easy going

They just like to sleep and eat. Just like you.

2. You can relate to them

Again, like you, they just like to sleep and eat. You don’t feel like going out to exercise? Neither do they. Ever. It’s the perfect arrangement.

3. You don’t need to waste money on toys

Cats can literally find the fun in anything. Chances are you’ll buy them a super expensive toy and they’ll ignore it for the cardboard box the toy came in.

4. They don’t make unnecessary noise

There’s nothing more annoying than a dog barking repeatedly at a dog on TV. Cats don’t even like other cats half the time.

5. They’re straight to the point

There’s no guessing with cats. If they want feeding, they’ll make it clear. If you need to change their litter, they’ll let you know. You can trust a cat.

6. You don’t need to worry

There’s usually not the worry of wondering where they are. They know where they live and they’ll come back when they’re hungry.

7. They’re incredibly snuggly

Cats love to be in enclosed spaces, so spooning under the covers is perfect for your beloved pet. Especially when you’re single and don’t want to be reminded that nobody loves you or wants you and you’re forever alone.

Sorry.

8. They have personality

Cats are hilariously confident in their personalities. If you annoy them, they will literally ignore you for hours on end.

9. They’re self sufficient

You never have to bath them or brush them (unless they’re majorly dirty) because they take care of all beautifying themselves.

10. And unlike dogs, they don’t get themselves in messy situations

Cats tend to think about what they do. There’s no way you’d see a cat rolling around in a muddy puddle only to tread it all back through your cream carpet.

11. They make great feet warmers

They’re light enough to not crush your toes and warm enough to save you from buying slippers.

12. You can blend them in with your decor

You can camouflage your own cat. Especially if you have a black and white one – there’s nothing more chic than a minimalist monochrome touch with a cat as the centrepiece.
