12 Reasons Why Boomers Hate Cats

Well, let's delve into the intriguing world of cat-baby Boomer relations and explore the 12 reasons why these two groups might not always see eye to eye.

1. Allergies Galore 

Allergies are a common concern among Boomers when it comes to cats. Cat dander, those tiny, nearly invisible flecks of skin, can trigger sneezing fits, itchy eyes, and relentless nasal congestion. 

2. Childhood Traumas 

Childhood experiences can leave a lasting imprint on one's perceptions of cats. Some Boomers may recall run-ins with unfriendly or hostile felines during their early years 

3. Traditional Pets 

For many Boomers, dogs represent the epitome of traditional pets—loyal, obedient, and always eager to please. 

4."Crazy Cat Lady" Stereotype 

Boomers may have encountered this stereotype in the media, where cat owners are often depicted as eccentric, socially isolated individuals surrounded by an excessive number of cats. 

5. Prefer Low-Maintenance Pets 

Boomers often gravitate toward pets that require minimal fuss. While independent, cats need care, like feeding and litter box maintenance 

6. Noise Sensitivity
