You know why you love them, even if no one else understands.
It's the little things cats do that make them unique,
like the way they drape one paw over their face when they are sleeping.
They want to shut out the world and simulate the darkness of night.
How about the way their body parts twitch, like the kitties are in the middle of a fun dream?
Or maybe it is a scary dream.
Either way, we almost feel disappointed that their dreams will remain a mystery to us.
Don't you love it when your cat rolls around on the floor?
It's almost as though he is trying to entertain you.
Or maybe he just craves attention.
Cats are more like people than we give them credit for.
How about the fussy way they clean themselves?
They lick the side of their paw, roll it over the side of their face, then repeat the steps.
They care about personal hygiene just as much as we do, maybe even more so.
Sure, cats may not always be as friendly as dogs are, but they are independent--just like us.
They want things the way they want them.
They don't like anyone to invade their personal space.
They do things the way they want them done.
That's the way it is, and if we don't like it, then that's just tough you-know-what.
But we can all relate to that emotion sometimes, can't we?
What about the intent way they watch a tennis match on TV and how they swat at the ball?
They want to get in on the action.
They want to feel a sense of belonging and to be part of the world, the same way we do.
Cute little furry creatures they are indeed.
But there is so much more to them than that.
Cats are kindred spirits to us.
That's why we love them.
But I didn't really need to tell you that, did I?
