Culture Cats: Big Assholes

| Wednesday, 13 May 2015 14:00

I’m not one for BuzzFeed posts but sometimes they are right on point. Take for example anything related to cats. Golden material. That crap gets shared 1.7 million times. I’ve had cats all my life so I’m more inclined to seek the snuggly comfort of a bipolar fuzzball than a dog.

Sure, dogs can double up as a best friend. You can take them with you everywhere and never feel like a loner with no friends. Nice day at beach? Go by yourself and play fetch with your dog buddy. Immediately, you’re a cool, caring, animal lover. Try that shit with a cat, and you’re an instant weirdo, a weirdo who may or may not have a body buried in the backyard. Nobody puts cats on leashes and when you see someone that does, we all judge them.

Equally, no one ever comes up to the said person and gushes about how cute their cat is, asking if they can pet them, and how old they are. There isn’t a cat Meetup at the park, but a pug Meetup is totally acceptable – and attracts even non-pet owners. I myself have creepily stalked a baby French bulldog in the hopes that his owner would let m pet him.

So why are cats viewed as such assholes by people who don’t own one? Maybe it’s because of these photos:

And finally, maybe if cats didn’t pull stuff like this, they’d be more loveable than satan.
