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!
