25 Reasons Why Cats Are Better Than Children
You heard me right. Cats are better than children. After years of dealing with both cats and children, I have come to the conclusion that cats are the more superior of the two. You don't believe me? I have proof!
- Cats don't sleep in their own pee and poo. My cats won't even step in their litter box if I forget to clean it.
- Cats don't keep harping you with stupid questions. They won't keep asking you "why?" at the most inconvenient times.
- Cats can keep themselves clean. You don't need to give them a bath every single day.
- Cats don't need round-the-clock attention. They are the low-maintenance members of the family.
- Cats don't whine. Thankfully! Whining is just so annoying.
- Cats don't talk incessantly. Children just never know when you need them to shut up.
- Cats don't cry at the top of their lungs to manipulate you. You won't need to have a soundproof booth installed in your home in order to keep your sanity.
- Cats don't complain. They are the masters of cool.
- Cats don't need to go to school. No tuition fees, no PTA meetings, no phone calls from the school principal telling you your cat got into trouble again.
- Cats sleep all day so you can have peace and quiet. Ahh... relaxation when you're home from work sounds like heaven.
- Cats don't require milk formulas. Your grocery bill won't give you a headache.

- Cats play quietly. You don't have to remind them every single minute to keep the noise down.
- Cats don't sweat. Have you ever been in the same room as children who've been out playing in the sun? Ugh!
- Cats are born cute. Most newborn babies look like they could star in a horror flick.
- Cats won't ask you for money. Ding ding ding!
- Cats won't ask you if they can go see a concert of that rock band you're sure are worshipers of the devil.
- Cats won't smoke, drink or do drugs under peer pressure. Well, catnip doesn't count.
- Cats normally come when they are called.
- Cats are easier to train than most children.
- Cats can be spayed or neutered so you never have to worry about them getting pregnant or impregnating someone.
