Life As A Cat
Ever wonder why it is a cliche about the “crazy cat lady”? I guess if you have more than one cat and you live alone you are the crazy. For some reason it is associated with hoarding, loneliness, and depression.
Cats are notorious for being independent. So I am surprised that the stereotype of having cats is not one of an independent woman who can take care of herself. Instead it means you can’t find a man or you are you can’t connect with others.
Cats are actually considered royalty in some countries. Some interesting facts about cats:
- They can be allergic to you. Since cats are more frequently being kept indoors, they’re more susceptible to inflammation of their airways caused by cigarette smoke, dusty houses, human dandruff, pollen and some kinds of cat litters.
- If cats and dogs are introduced while they’re still young—six months for cats, and a year for dogs—they’ll get along just fine. There goes the theory of fighting like cats and dogs.
- Most people believe cats were domesticated in Egypt but they were actually first domesticated in China.
- Cats spend so much time grooming because It helps cool cats off, comforts them, stimulates circulation, and keeps them clean of odors that might attract predators.
Something else I didn’t know is that a group of cats is called a clowder. So I guess we can we can change out expression to something the clowder gal. Clowder gal has a cats galore. Kitty cats are a wonderful pet. You can leave them for days with a self-feeder and water. They are not clingy like dogs either. Maybe that’s why they make such a popular pet among women. Women have about a billion things to take care of everyday so what could be a better companion than a cat. My friend, who owns Vegas Towing Service, owns about a 100 cats and refers to all of them as her companions.
Cats also tend to live a fairly long life which is another great reason to have one. They usually live around 15 years and they are asleep over half of that time. Kitties do love to sleep, and so do I.
