10 Honest Reasons People Are in Love With Cats

No one is a stranger to the fact that cats are cherished animals worldwide. Every time you’re upset, a cute cat video is bound to turn that frown upside down. While all animals have unique antics, a popular online community shares several reasons they specifically adore cats.

1. Beauty Runs in the Family

Cats are breathtaking when it comes to their divine beauty. One person compliments their big eyes, which are full of expression. Complement that with a small button nose and a round face with whiskers; you get a creature that God put in extra hours to create. 

2. Cuddle Buddies

Cats are the ideal creatures for cuddles, thanks to their irresistible warmth and fuzziness. They are small, soft, and furry. Put their soft purrs in the mix, and you have the best cuddle buddy ever! With cats around, you can kiss your embarrassingly large collection of plushies goodbye. 

3. The Ultimate Meditation Gurus

Most cats do not readily react, no matter how silly you get with them. To prove this, one user shows how their pregnant cat remained zen despite the fact they put a small crystal on her perfect little head. Not to mention, the crystal remained balanced for about five minutes straight!

4. Feline Panache

Cats are elegant in how they walk and communicate through body language. As someone describes, there’s a sense of fluidity in how they carry themselves about. While they may appear soft in motion, they can be assertive when needed.

5. A Rare Sight

While cats are generally sophisticated in their demeanor, they can occasionally entertain you with a goofy act. It is fun to see your calm and collected cat have the zoomies at 3:00 am and bump into things for no reason. Such clumsiness can be entertaining due to its stark contrast with their otherwise elegant behavior.

6. Personality

Cat owners tend to find how their cats have unique personalities. Since they are partially wild, there’s only so much you can control about them.

Each cat has a distinct way of showing affection and acceptance towards their human friends. All this variation allows cat owners to build distinguishing bonds with these feline creatures. 

7. The Trust Fall

Compared to dogs, cats treat you more as a friend than a master. As a user points out, building a connection with your cat can take time, as if you were trying to make a friend. You need to earn their trust through time, and they’ll only show you affection after their acceptance towards you.

8. An Introvert’s Friend

A clingy pet is unsuitable for people who enjoy their personal space and want to keep it that way. In such a case, cats come to your rescue. Since cats are not typically aggressively social, they make excellent roommates.

9. Strong and Independent

While you may have a pet cat, it’s not entirely dependent on you. Cats have wild instincts, which make them capable of surviving in the worst scenarios. As someone shares, even the unfortunate abandoned kitties learn to hunt and survive. They can mark their territories and safely return on their own. 

10. Low Maintenance

How intensively one cares for their cat comes down to personal preference, but these furry friends don’t ask for much overall. As an individual says, they are capable of cleaning themselves. Once they are grown up, they may not even require you to babysit them.

Their small size makes them easy to keep indoors even if you’re short on space. Plus, they don’t need to be taken out for walks. I bet this makes the couch potatoes happy. Do you have another reason to add to this list?
