WHY ARE PEOPLE CAT OBSESSED?

  1. They are gorgeous. You can’t deny this, even if they’re not your thing.
  2. Kittens are irresistible levels of cute. I dare you to meet a kitten in person and try not to smile. No human can resist that level of charm, even if they’re not a fan of cats in general.
  3. Pretty much every cat is quirky and odd. Cats quite frankly have such unique personalities from one another that we “cat people” find it hard not to treat them like tiny humans.
  4. When they’re being antisocial and don’t want your attention, it sort of just makes you crave their attention more.
  5. And then when they do want your attention – for a cuddle or a belly rub or anything along those lines – it makes you extra happy because they chose to come to you on their own.
  6. Scientific research actually shows that cats lower the risk of heart attacks in their owners. As Laura Moss put it, “A 10-year study at the University of Minnesota Stroke Center found that cat owners were 40 percent less likely to have heart attacks than non-cat owners.” We don’t know exactly why this is, it may be down to the fact that they purr, but either way, seems like there’s some sort of biological reason why we love ’em.
  7. People who obsess over cats – well our obsession is like an addiction with us. Cats to us are like chocolate to a chocoholic – a perfect way to get a quick and easy fix of happiness. Though luckily for us cat-o-holics, there’s no downside of weight gain.
  8. Many of the things people love about having dogs – the fact that they come to greet you at the door, that they desire your attention and love, that they are happy to have you around, and that they will go out of their way to seek out your cuddles and affection – are true of cats, too. You may think most cats just mind their own business the whole day and don’t bother with humans, but those of us with cats know better – they’re not as anti-social as their reputation suggests.
  9. Cats are really cathartic to talk to. Honestly, you may think cat people are crazy when they talk to their pets, but don’t knock it ’til you try it.
  10. Cats and other pets can feel like children who never grow up, which is nice if you like some of the many things involved in having a child: having someone who needs you, who wants your attention and affection, who’s life is made better and happier by your existence and care. You may not care for these things, but there are many of us who love the feeling of being needed and appreciated.
