Happy National Cat Day!

Posted by Richard on October 29, 2014

Yes, there is indeed a National Cat Day, and rightly so. There are countless ways to celebrate this auspicious occasion. Many involve wasting time on the Internet.

A lot of people, guys in particular, prefer dogs. They consider cats aloof, standoffish, too independent, and not loving and affectionate. They’re wrong. But here’s the thing: it takes more effort to bond with and gain the affection of a cat than a dog.

Dogs are easy. They’re the pet equivalent of the woman who’ll sleep with anybody (except you won’t need shots after being licked by a dog).

You have to earn the affection of a cat. You have to work at the relationship. They play hard to get (except they’re not playing). Once you’ve built that bond, though, you can expect the cat to curl up in your lap, follow you around, cuddle next to you in bed, groom you (my Coco likes to lick my beard), etc. And you’ll feel good about yourself for being worthy of that trust and affection. Isn’t that better than the cheap encounter with that tramp cockapoo from down the street?

Well, enough praise of cats. Coco and I are going to go take a nap together.
