Updated on May 31, 2021

I have owned cats for over 60 years. Between them and their vets, I have learned a great deal about how they tick.

Did You Ever See a Cat

I love watching cats when they do silly stuff like run into something while chasing a laser then look at you as if to say "I meant to do that!" Cats will jump at things that are totally harmless and they will dance in circles chasing their own tail. If you need someone to entertain you for hours, and want attention just as much, then a cat may be right for you. I like that I don't have to bathe them or take them for a walk. While they often stink up the house with their poops, they will try (or at least most will try) to bury it to hide the scent. I know dogs are great and have owned many in my lifetime, and I know that the love of a dog is absolute. However, I feel cats have more of a personality. So, if you have never seen a cat do any of the things below, you might want to take a moment to watch, because they are sometimes very silly creatures.

Additional Facts About Cats

  • Cats are one of the cleanest animals around.
  • Cats, like dogs, love unconditionally and give many second chances.
  • Cats will sleep with you, on you, and against you, but never when you want them to.
  • Cats have their own personality. Some will play fetch and carry with you and others will look insulted when you try to get them to do it.
  • Cats have great facial expressions. You can look at their face and almost hear their words.
  • Cats can help relieve stress, ease pain, and cause you to laugh (which is great for you).

Allergic to cats? Try getting one of the fur-less cats or using a medication that slows down or stops cats from shedding. It is the shedding and the dander of cats to which most people are allergic. Want to learn more about cats? Your vet is your first and best source of information.

      FloraBreenRobison, thank you for stopping by and enjoying my poem, cat lovers rule (if their cats let them of course)

      Vincent Moore, cats are wonderful creatures aren't they? I love all animals as well, but I think cats have my weak spot.

      thank you both for stopping by and commenting. :)

      Your Tiger looks just like my Sabrina ginger Tabby. I love cats, she owns me and won't let any other cat near me without a fight. LoL...I love most all animals, I'm very partial to cats and dogs though. Great hub, loved your choice of words.
