    3. And knowing the difference between what is too much and just enough attention.

    4. Having a one-way conversation and being completely fine with it.

    5. Sneezing in the most discreet way possible so you don't scare the living daylights out of your cat.

    6. And eating your food strategically so you don't have to share it with incoming cat paws.

    7. Making peace with the fact your bed is no longer your bed.

    8. Convincing yourself that a bite means they love you.
