Why Women Like Cats

Women love cats.
Women love cats.

As most of you know, I am a genius-level observer of humanity, or as close to one as is humanly possible to get on this Earth for anyone who is me. And, as I often do, I have once again put my conspicuous willingness to deploy assumptions and carefully omitted facts together with my bombastic and obfuscatory prowess so that I might, by forgoing any other source or resource, prove once and for all, and with clearly pseudo-scientific certainty, why it is that chicks like cats so damn much. So, that said, let’s get on to the empirical evidence, that you all may, like me, finally have the truth of it:

So there I was, having a nice piece of left over tri tip. It was delicious, right out of the fridge, just the right shade of pink and that perfect texture tri tip gets when it’s cold. It had the fine balance of brown-sugar sweetness mixed with the salty smack of the dry rub, which sent winds of flavorful aroma into the air and pleasured my taste buds with general culinary epicness. Mmmm.

Just having some lunch.
Just having some lunch.

So, yes, I'm having my lunch, standing at the counter eating with my fingers as a man should when there is no woman in the house, and my wife's cat starts meowing at me, and looking at me all pathetic and clearly starving. Now, trust me, this cat is ponderously fat and hasn’t missed a meal in its life. In fact, it is an expert at getting additional meals whenever it wants, so at first I simply ignored its plaintiff wails.

“Piss off, cat,” I think to myself as it jumps up onto a chair and looks at me, its pink nose twitching and its little mouth shaping the mews of feline want. I turned my back on it. “Mmmm, the meat is awesome,” I think.


So here comes this satin fluff upon my ankle, a soft bump of kitty skull gently butting me to the tune of so much purring you might have thought someone had just started up a motor boat. It starts rubbing on my ankle with its fluffy-ass head, and, well, I started feeling guilty about eating the savory deliciousness of my tri tip in front of it when he, the stupid cat, only had a bowl of nasty dry kibbles sitting nearby. I mean, we have a strict household rule against feeding human food to the cats, but that does not change the fact that the creature has a sense of smell. And I am not heartless after all.

So pity starts to get the better of me, and I think, "Poor stupid-yet-soft-and-marginally-adorable animal, you have only that hard, nasty kibble to eat, a vegetable derivative no less, a crunchy gravel that surely stands as an abomination against all things properly feline.” So I considered giving it a bit of my tri tip.

But then… “No!” think I. “What sort of lesson would this be for this cat? What kind of expectation would I set by doing it? In essence training it that its piteous laments and sweet vocalizations of appetite were in fact the way to human culinary delights! I would be arming it with tools of panhandling, giving it the tin cup of cat beggarhood, the very artifacts of a fuzzy roustabout!” So, unwilling to set it up for future disappointment, not to mention pave the way to incessant cat vagabondery at my house, I once more turned my back upon it and attempted to enjoy my lunch.

The attack is on.
The attack is on.

Rumble, rumble went the little boat. It circled the harbor of my feet, butting its little prow against the pier posts of my ankles and shins. Rumble, rumble. Mew, mew.

“Fine!” I say to it at last. “Fine. I submit to your fur-infused assault. The fort is yours.” I pinch off a bit of meat for it. Not much, less than a quarter-inch square, but right from the pink heart of my bit of beef. The best stuff.

“Here, vagrant,” I say as I hand the meat down onto the floor. “Take your victory you little scallywag. Enjoy.”

He sniffed it twice and went away.

And this, I am certain, is exactly why women like cats.

This explains so much.
This explains so much.

You chauvinistic beast! Am I to infer from this little bit of genius exposition that woman love cats because they're actually the only animal as smart as we are? Or is this to say that cats (like women) are shameless with the purring and rubbing when they want something?

Yes, I laughed. Tri-tip is to cats, as coffee is to me. It smells deliciously wonderful, but I don't really want to drink it.

And I do love cats, but my daughter-in-law is so allergic to them she sets up a long term sneeze session any time one is in the vicinity. Though It was a hard choice-- having a cat, or seeing my grandchildren now and then-- I have chosen catlessness.

The last sketch is great-- Your cat's license plate says zero.

Shadesbreath 4 years ago from California Author

M2C, chauvinism is just good fun. As far as that other stuff, something about women smart as a cat or something, yes, possibly. The rubbing thing, yes, that's a fact for sure!

Paradise... you darn confusing people you. Men are logic based, all of that sort of other stuff is just confounding. It's why men invented alcohol and the NFL.

I'm with you on that coffee thing, Rochelle. What is it with that? Usually smells go with taste pretty close, but blehhh! It does smell like "morning" to me though. :) And lol, yeah, I giggled when I put up his license plate, being mature as I am and all.

Ha! Well, at least YOU ate that delicious meat--and standing up too, with your fingers, which is smart as that way it doesn't count, calorie-wise.

BTW my cat will eat that stuff, and it's hell because now, between the cat and the dog I cannot so much as make a sandwich without an audience all the way through, and I have no one to blame but myself. Awesome analysis, as usual. :)

Melissa A Smith 4 years ago from New York

Vegetable-derivative? I'm actually really surprised the cat didn't like the tri tipe, they must be supremely weird animals (I've never owned one), cats are obligate carnivores and will be harmed if they don't get adequate animal based protein. I'd check the dates on that meat...I'd also recommend keeping their food moist, that's usually what leads to kidney failure down the road.

Christoph Reilly 4 years ago from St. Louis

All set was I, to hurl general but humorous insults in your general direction--just for sport, you understand--when the surprise ending caught me off guard, causing me to laugh heartily, or lol as the kids write. I just went through this cat ballet today, me tearing slivers of deli meat from my medicinal and soul strengthening lunchtime hoagie to feed to the mewling beast. Well done!

Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 4 years ago from California Author

Thanks CR. I can imagine with a dog and a cat, you are lucky to even get any meat. However, it did occur to me after I wrote this, that I was spared the odor that follows the consumption of real meat in cats, and the litter box is only one room away from my den here, and definitely upwind. I've been driven near to tears in agony more than once. I expect tri tip would have made much the same... foul wind.

Melissa, that's actually probably awesome advice. And it's my understanding that most dry pet foods have very high vegetable/cereal components. To me it seems insane, and I regularly express my doubts as to the purity and veracity of the claims by the big corporations that it's all fine. I think our last couple of cats have had kidney issues, and wouldn't be surprised if that's why. I try to stay out of it though, as its not my area of expertise , but, well, this is actually the first cat we've had in like twenty four years that likes me, so, ... Maybe I'll look into it more now that you've pointed it out. It is still my wife's cat though, and I know how annoying I can be when I go on a research kick. Probably just suck all the fun out of owning the damn thing. lol.

Mr. Reilly, greetings, and bwahahaha at you and your being nice to a cat in such an emasculating fashion. I would hurl insults back at you, despite what may or may not have happened in this article, but, alas, I guess I'll just see you down at the eunuch's club after my wife comes home and gives me my kitchen pass.

See, Flora, that's what you get for thinking. It's much better to just make reasons up like I do, especially if you use some big words while doing it: POOF... truth, as easy as a handful of multisyllabics and some funny pictures. Just goes to prove reality is relative and meaningless. :D

Last night, I was assaulted by Zuma (my senile, boney cat) while I tried to enjoy one of those single serving sized cups of Ben & Jerry's Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream. He clambered up onto my desk, yowling plaintively (and after having just consumed an entire dish of Friskies shredded tuna...his breath conflicted with the fragrance of my ice cream treat), ropey Fu Manchu mustache drools dripping from his jowls, puddling between his front paws...

I finally gave in with the last mouthful and offered the cup to him. He proceeded to jam his entire skull into the paper cup, nearly becoming stuck...so I had to hold it for him (of course). He disdained the final strawberry...but afterward, I was rewarded with more drool and plenty of purrs.

Next time I'll try the tri tip.

Btw...LOVED, loved, loved...the attack boat vs tender ankle picture. Priceless!

Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 4 years ago from California Author

Wow, Spryte, that cat of yours sounds, uh, really awesome? Who wouldn't want puddles of "ropey Fu Manchu mustache drools" puddling up on them. Just lololol @ that. I am happy he got some desert after that tuna feast though. Bleh.

Your literate hub, Shades, underscores for me the truth of that hoary saying: 'Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.' Would you agree?

Cats are logical and they THINK. Every action is well thought out with its humans fully and accurately analyzed. Sad but true. The proof of it is their disinterest in NFL stuff and preference for milk as a beverage.

Shades, I loved this! Like Christoph Reilly, I was set for an entirely different outcome when I began reading it (mostly because you'd written it rather than for the likelihoods suggested by its title) - and it turned out to be a most hilarious and wonderful romp through a quite believable experience. Thanks for the fun!

Reminded me of our two felines, each with its own tactics. Well, one of them was a female feline, one was not - so, naturally, their tactics were completely opposite.

Genna, hi and thanks for the Ups. And yes, do have a look to see (verify) that your cat is proving the science of this article. :D

drbj, good to see you! And you aren't even kidding about that staff thing. I suppose I would be fine with the concept, but I had no idea I AM the concept.

Hi Nellieanna, long time no see (my own fault of course, but I certainly won't admit it out loud... lazy reader/commenter that I am). Actually, on the NFL thing, I have to confess, my wife's cat will sit in my lap during football games, one of the few times it actually does, and I think it ONLY does that just to emasculate me. I mean, how manly can you be watching football with a stupid cat in your lap. Glad you enjoyed the fun, and I'm glad you found it and stopped by.

Bmukherjii, I think you've summed up the key attributes nicely. Plus, kittens are hilarious.

Great writing Shades, love the way you start the thought and then we are all in the little boat chugging round your harbour - in a literary way of course. Of course it sniffed it and went away - it just made a point to you. If I knew what pwned meant I might say that.

Shanna11 profile image

Shanna11 4 years ago from Utah

Once upon a time I sold my soul to the devil and promised my dad free backrubs and backscratches for the rest of his life without complaint if he would let me get a kitten. So I got a cat-- a really stupid, docile, but awesome cat.

Fast forward one year. The day after his first birthday. He gets hit by a car and vanishes.

Moving forward another three months or so, the cat returns, whole, healthy and hale with a dislocated, but otherwise healed hip. The end.

That has nothing to do with why I like cats, but it's /about/ cats and I really wanted to share. Maybe there's a moral in there somewhere about not making life long promises for something that's going to possibly get itself killed a year later....

Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 4 years ago from California Author

LOL @ Ewbie: I'm glad you don't know what pwned means because I hate getting pwnzored. Or something. :D And yes, point made. I lost, 0-1.

Shanna, it's a cruel joke, or, well, macabre joke... or something, but if you can handle grizzly, dark humor, consider Googling the image "Free Cat." Make sure you click "image' before you type it in, because it comes right up. It's been a round for a long time, but I still LOL at it. (Oh, and I imagine you keep your nails in good shape, nice and rounded and polished up pretty with all those eternal backrubs and scratching. Nice work on that promise. That will teach you.)

Stephanie Henkel profile image

Stephanie Henkel 4 years ago from USA

Those who think like cats know that it's not about eating the food that you finally give it...it's all about bending you to its fluffy headed will!

It's even better if they can get someone to give them the best part of their food...and then reject it. Oh, yeah, I'm a woman who loves cats! (and I love your hub, too!)

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 4 years ago from TEXAS

Well, I'm thinking the fault is mutual. It's just good to see and be seen now. We have to grab the present and let the other time-frames fend for themselves. So thank you for the sweet greeting here. I appreciate you, John, even above and beyond cats!

Our kitties would use absolutely any excuse to get into a lap, and football was as good as any, besides offering a nicely extended lap-sit - so long as it didn't deter the lap-owner from stroking, (as when jumping up and down, shouting and clapping hysterically when the right team scored) and so long as it allowed the kitty to prolong enjoying the setup. But there was no actual indication of interest in the game itself, or in half-time entertainment or the commercials going on up there, though when commercials featuring cats and their interests came on (not usually during NFL games, admittedly) they did perk up ears & afford those a little cat-credibility.

However, their innate intelligence comes into question as I recall my cat "Lady Blue" who would allow little Nellieanna to dress her in doll clothes and tuck her into a little doll bed, lying on her back, casting doubts on feline independence & self-aggrandizement. Then another example, a black and white male, who would actually pretend to let the kittens (which he fathered with a much too-young cat who neglected them), to pretend to nurse, while he groomed and nurtured them tenderly. Something amiss there, too.

But I've met few felines lacking redeeming virtues and some who were almost therapeutic and truly empathetic when their humans are 'down' or ill. But dogs can do that too.

LOL, this is great. My cats do exactly the same when I finally relent and give them morsels of food I am eating.

You must remember the following comparison made between dogs and cats:

Diary of a Dog and Cat…

As seen in a dog's diary:

7 am - Oh boy! A walk! My favorite!

8 am - Oh boy! Dog food! My favorite!

9 am - Oh boy! The kids! My favorite!

Noon - Oh boy! The yard! My favorite!

2 pm - Oh boy! A car ride!

My favorite!

3 pm - Oh boy! The kids! My favorite!

4 pm - Oh boy! Playing ball! My favorite!

6 pm - Oh boy! Welcome home Mom! My favorite!

7 pm - Oh boy! Welcome home Dad! My favorite!

8 pm - Oh boy! Dog food! My favorite!

9 pm - Oh boy! Tummy rubs on the couch! My favorite!

11 pm - Oh boy! Sleeping in my people's bed! My favorite!

As seen in a cat's diary:

Day 183 of my captivity... My captors continued to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from clawing the furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another house plant. Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded - must try this at the top of the stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair - must try this on their bed.Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body in an attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear in their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was. Hmmm, not working according to plan...There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the food. More important, I overheard that my confinement was due to my powers of inducing "allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird, on the other hand, has got to be an informant and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his safety is assured. But I can wait, it is only a matter of time....

How do you explain women who prefer dogs and don't really like cats? Dogs are appreciative of anything you give them.

Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 4 years ago from California Author

Stephanie Henkel: Oh, I got bent all right. Little bastard got me good. But, I am glad to see that I have properly deduced the underlying motives. Thanks for that.

Nellieanna: Wow, on that male cat. That's pretty amazing. Animals are cool like that though. You see something that changes all your "known truths" and reshapes the possibilities for people too. As for the cat liking football, I'm certain it didn't. I like to think it's because it likes me at least a little, which my insists it does, but there is still part of me that thinks it's just F-ing with me.

Nell, you are only cementing the truth of this discovery. Soon, word will get out to all men and... and... we'll have a rebellion or something.

OMG, Misty, I forgot all about that thing. That's so funny. I love how evil that cat is. I wrote a hub sort of like that somewhere that I forgot all about until you put that up. Something about Homemade Catfood and Longpork or something. I'm too lazy to go look. I do love the idea of the evil kitty. There's a funny movie called Cats & Dogs that has a hilarious evil cat too.

LOL, Shanna. Told you.

Pamela, I don't explain women who prefer dogs, because they clearly don't exist as is evident by the lack of them in my hub. One primary advantage of the internet, is the ease with which it facilitates the omission of facts and the presentation of grotesque fallacy as fact, a great trough of which the public will feast willingly and happily. I stand upon that particular variety of truth here and, because I use the term truth, I can then simply point out that I must be right given that it's clearly truth. :D

Aw, come on! Some of us guys like cats too. I happen to have nine right now. Only had eight this morning, but a neighbor kid came by with a cute little orange one and a sad story. He was given the kitten by a friend, but his dad wouldn't let him keep it. I asked him about giving it back to the original owners. Nope, they didn't want it back. What could I do? We have nine now.

Wow! I like cats too, but, like two cats seems like a whole herd of them to me already. How can you even walk around your house in the dark without stepping on one of their tails? It would be like a mine field. You walk along and, instead of a click-BOOM, you get a "MeOWRRR-bite!"

Still, we must not let on that we like cats as men, Eric. We have a stereotype to maintain.

I ain't getting any more dogs. You can call me a wuss if you want, but here's why: http://hubpages.com/animals/Why-Im-Not-a-Dog-Perso...

Ask Ashley profile image

Ask Ashley 4 years ago from California

Yep, I'd say wuss is appropriate. I read your dog stories, which were very sad, but losing a dog or anyone for that matter is a part of life...unfortunately. If your dogs provided you happiness, and we both know they did, you should enjoy that happiness again. When I was 12 I watched my dog go through chemo, lose his hair and wither away...only to beat cancer and die the next day from being overdosed on medicine by the vet...I got two dogs after that (years later) and one had to be put down due to an illness and one was hit by a delivery truck in front of my house a few months later and died...I have since lost three more dogs---most recently in November--another dog to cancer. But I love dogs too much not to keep having them in my life, so I guess in that sense, it's worth the pain and risk of losing them to have had them in the first place.

Women like cats because they know how to tease - they flirt with you and cajole, and finally get their way - then walk off with a flip of the tail. Having a cat around keeps us in good practice.

Shadesbreath profile image

Well, from a guy's perspective, and obviously strictly pertaining only to the article above, we just want to give them some meat. They act like they want it, and then don't take it. It's confounding.
