    18 Reasons Why Cats Are The Only Pet You Should Ever Have

    Cats don't get stinky and they don't wake you up at 2am because someone walked past the house.

    1. First things first, cats are way cuter than dogs.

    2. And sometimes, they're BEAUTIFUL.

    3. I'm not here to say that dogs are bad, but we need to face the fact that cats are way, way better.

    4. Cats are more cuddly.

    5. Cats are softer and fluffier.

    6. Cats are extremely low maintenance.

    7. And cats are hella chill. Dogs are way too thirsty for love, and get all up in your business.

    8. Cats understand personal space, they don't slobber and jump all over you.

    9. Cats don't go crazy and bark at every person who walks by your house.

    10. Cats are very intelligent, and dogs are, sorry, kinda dumb.

    11. Cats don't get stinky because they know how to clean themselves.

    12. Cats purr, which is the cutest thing on the planet.

    13. Cats will kill and eat bugs that you don't want in your house.

    14. Cats don't need to be taken out to pee when you're in the middle of doing something important.

    15. And they don't need to be walked every damn day.

    16. They're also really funny.

    17. Oh, and their eyes when they're in the sun? Breathtaking.

    18. In summary: cats are better than dogs. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
