Top 5 Reasons Why It's Great to Be a Cat Mom

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Whether you have human children or furry kids, this day is for you!

My two boys are both furry, and I wouldn't have it any other way. For me, cats are the perfect kids, and here are my top 5 reasons why I love being a cat mom:

1. No diapers.
I don't know about you all, but I'd rather scoop poop and flush a little litter any day over changing stinky, smelly diapers and wiping dirty butts.

2. You rarely need a babysitter.
I can go to work, to dinner, to the mall or even on a weekend getaway and leave my cats at home alone. All they need is some extra food and water and they take care of themselves! Maybe you come home to a shredded roll of toilet paper or cat toys spread all over the house, but overall you can bet they mostly just slept like angels. (That's what I tell myself when I'm away, anyway!)

3. They are softer.
You know that saying "Smooth as a babies behind," right? Well, who cares about smooth... Cats are nice and soft and fluffy! Soft as a kitten's fur. Now how do I go about making that a regular saying?

4. No giving birth.
The are my sons, there's no doubt, but I didn't have to actually birth them. Sure, sometimes kittens are tiny and you have to bottle feed them like a baby, but you didn't actually have to pop him out. Plus, you can't disagree with me that newborn kittens are way cuter than newborn babies.

5. They take up less space in the bed.
This one is arguable, I know, but technically cats take up less physical space in the bed that kids would. Your kitty might weigh, what, 20 pounds at most? Compare that to a human kid who can't sleep and crawls into your bed in the middle of the night -- the kitty definitely takes up less space! (The human kid might be more cooperative, though. We all know cats make you move so they're comfortable.)


Bonus reason: Cat names are way more fun!

You can name cats silly things like Pimp and Moo and no one looks at you like you're crazy. In fact, they think it's extra cute and love them even more!

Happy Mother's Day to all the cat moms (and ALL the pet moms!) out there!

  2. They're easier to feed. I never was blessed with a picky eater, or maybe, my cats had just trained me well.

  9. I have some future-oriented reasons why furkids are great. Like they will never want a driver's license or college tuition, or grow to think that Mom is uncool. They're just as loyal in their teens as they are when their age is in single digits. ;-)

    They all rock in their own ways, though. Happy Mother's Day to ALL who have human or fuzzy kids! :-)

  10. You forgot reason No. 6: You don't have to pay for college! That's what I tell my brother and sisters every time they get on my case for "only" having cats.

  23. This is so true!!!! If I'd known cats were this great, I'd have started out with them sooner!!!!!

  24. And we still have all the mom stuff, picking up after them, making sure they eat well, cleaning up when they get sick, taking them to the doctor's, breaking up fights. And just like with kids, I can't go to the bathroom by myself.

  25. Haha! SO true about the bathroom!

  26. Happy Mothers Day! Momster loves having us as her kitties. She also loves the fun Daily Cute brings to her life!

  27. The publicist and male person would argue the bed comment. With all four of the Farm cats in bed with them there is not much room for humans
