Non-cat people just don’t understand cat-people. And sometimes they can be downright mean and insensitive to those of us who absolutely ADORE our feline friends. I particularly enjoyed the article by VetStreet.com that outlines the Top 7 Comments That Make Cat Owners Cringe because I can personally relate to all of them. When a colleague at work found out I had several cats, the person proclaimed “I will never visit your house! I’m allergic them!!” to which I responded “That’s quite alright, you weren’t invited.”
Here are a few of the comments I found particular amusing:
- Dogs are friendlier than cats.
- You’re on your way to being a crazy cat lady!
- I could never have a cat. I’m allergic to them!
- What will you do with your cat when the baby comes?
People seem to be very vocal about not liking cats… and I find this peculiar. While I am 100% a cat person, that doesn’t mean that I don’t like dogs or would ever say unkind things about another animal. Clearly the people that make these comments have never experienced the joy of living with a cat. They are missing out. More for the rest of us.
