Okay, I have a cat. And I love my cat. He is my furry best friend that I can’t wait to see when I get home. He doesn’t judge me when I lie in bed all day hungover like a dog would. He doesn’t require 100% of my time and attention. I can live, and he can live, and I don’t have to worry about anything except for if his food bowl is filled or not.
The worst part is that I often find myself ashamed of him because of the negative stigma that goes along with being a ~single~ girl with a cat. I shouldn’t have to be afraid to talk about my pet when I am on a date or if I meet someone new. He is my pet and I should be allowed to show you pictures of how cute he is when he’s sleeping in a little ball next to me as I binge watch Law & Order. If he were a dog, I would be encouraged to show photos of him to boys and maybe complete strangers. People would be like, “Oh my gosh, you have a dog, let’s see that little fucker!” — but nope, the second I say I have a cat I instantly get the, “Oh… I see…” And I am dead and buried. You know, like how most men would prefer my cat to be. Dead. In the ground.
Not only am I cat owner, a lot of my friends are too. And they are hot. They are hot girls with cats. Shocker! Not wrinkly old weirdoes sitting on their couches knitting while crying into a pint of ice cream. They are completely normal and hot girls. Actually they are hotter than any girl I know with a dog so whatever. Your loss, cat-shamers.
For example, here is my good friend Paulina, she lives in San Diego and is a babe. Check her out below with her bff, Jules.
Look at her. Does she look like some ugly crazy lonely weirdo hag? NO. She is a hot girl and you assholes who judge her for her cat should be crawling at her feet begging her to date YOU. K? Hot girl with a cat. Wow, alert the media, she must be a complete nutcase with a closet full of issues! Except not. She is normal and hot. She just enjoys wine more than most but whatever. You should be so lucky.
And to all of you actual single crazy girls: stop saying you are going to adopt a bunch of cats. You are giving us all a bad name. I blame this bitch:
If a girl has a cat, don’t write her off. Don’t assume she’s crazy. Don’t be afraid of her. We shouldn’t be cat-shamed, we should be treated the same as dog girls. I mean I get that dog girls are usually cool and outgoing and love to be outside but guess who will end up having to wake up at the crack of dawn to take that little shit out to pee? YOU. YOU WILL. But us cat gals, we can stay in bed all morning. We don’t have to get up to tend to our pet, they tend to themselves. We don’t have to rush home from a night out to take our cat out, they’re just straight chillin’. We don’t have to bail on a weekend away because we can’t find a dog sitter, we just leave the little shits at home with like, 10 bowls of food. They’re good. They’re chill.
Single girls with cats are not single because they have a cat. Seriously, cool it with that and let’s move on. I know plenty of single girls with dogs so this cat lady shit needs to GO. Lets #endcatshaming2016 and move onto something more important. Like why you’re single as fuck and have zero pets. Loser.
