Reasons I need a cat:
1. Holy cuteness. I find cats extremely adorable; they’re so soft and lovable. They’re furry, small, dependent, sassy, and just incredible creatures.
2. Holy loveliness. I know a lot of people, including my parents, are hesitant to ever get a cat because “you never know what you’re gonna get.” Isn’t that true about anything in life? Kids? Dogs? Teachers? Coaches? Movies? Books? Yoga instructors? You just never know, so why let a poor little innocent cat be homeless another day just because you “don’t know what you’re gonna get.”
3. Holy dependentedness. Cats are 10000x easier than a dog; they don’t require being let out every few hours, they (usually) don’t pee all over, and they can go a few days with the same bowl of food. So much easier than a needy, dependent mutt.
4. Holy happiness. Every time I see a cat, my heart lights up and I get all smiley and just ugh. I need a cat to keep my sanity, I just do.
