How To Identify A Cat Lover?

Enthusiastic cat lover can be identified easily after you finish reading this post.

I have been under the love spell of two fluffy kitties since 2010. That's about a decade and in cat years, I'm way younger than these cat bros. They love me to bits and I don't know why. And I am glad no reasons are needed when a cat adopts you. Technically, they were born here and that could only mean they were born to love us. Enough about my cats' endless love for me and the other three human members of our clan.

Since you are still reading enthusiastically, I'm betting you're a cat lover yourself or that you find my writing utterly addictive.

What do cat lovers have in common? And what are the things that might give them away as an avid cat lover?

Some clues you will find below in between adorable photos of my fluffy felines. Enjoy!

🐱 They talk in cat language. Far from feeling strange in public, they will allow themselves to be befriended by a cat.

🐱 Cats often sit near them. But this could be because they're dispensing food to hungry felines or that they have mastered palpable tranquility that cats can't resist.

🐱 Cats do the slow squint to show they love them.

🐱 Cats are everywhere in their social media feed. Cats may also be their profile picture.

🐱 Cat-shaped ornaments and cat-printed things are everywhere in their homes.

🐱 Cats poke their heads effortlessly in their leg region asking for a loving pet.

🐱 Cats use their shoes or legs as scratching posts. Cats sleep on their slippers, sandals and various footwear of the lucky human.

🐱 These humans also have the tendency to find their homes being overtaken by the cat population (neutering and spaying of your cats can help with the overpopulation of stray kittens and cats - if you're in Malaysia, do support this cause). It's often advised that we adopt stray cats and rescue those that are in need. To natural cat lovers though, they know deep inside that a house is not a complete home without the presence of furries that happen to drop by one day and decide to stay.

🐱Sometimes, they go somewhere and find the cat that is the one. If the cat is healthy and happy, they have to refrain themselves from taking him or her back!

🐱 Some cat lovers have a face like that of a cat.

🐱 They dream of cats. They also dream being cats themselves. If there's a costume party involved, they come as a feline.

🐱 The might talk about cats forever if the subject opens up in a conversation.

Fun fact about the cats that adopted me: Tidus and Aiden came from a kitty named Smurf my mom adopted in 2009. Smurf was a friendly Siamese mix female cat that stole our hearts as well as our sweet senior female cat, Chirpy. Smurf and Chirpy were besties and both of them are in cat heaven along with countless cats at present.

Over to you: How did you become a cat lover? Do you know any other quirks of someone who is made about cats? Perhaps, that someone is yourself. Do share your thoughts down below. Let us all amuse ourselves!

To end this entry, here's a quote by Alan Watts:

“Although the rhythm of the waves beats a kind of time, it is not clock or calendar time. It has no urgency. It happens to be timeless time. I know that I am listening to a rhythm which has been just the same for millions of years, and it takes me out of a world of relentlessly ticking clocks. Clocks for some reason or other always seem to be marching, and, as with armies, marching is never to anything but doom. But in the motion of waves there is no marching rhythm. It harmonizes with our very breathing. It does not count our days. Its pulse is not in the stingy spirit of measuring, of marking out how much still remains. It is the breathing of eternity, like the God Brahma of Indian mythology inhaling and exhaling, manifesting and dissolving the worlds, forever. As a mere conception this might sound appallingly monotonous, until you come to listen to the breaking and washing of waves.”
