But really, how could you not love the most beautiful creatures in the whole universe??

1. Cats are not pets, but rather masters of their domain.

They rule the earth that we mere mortals tread. When you have one, you must accept the fact that it is the cat that is giving you an opportunity to live with it, and not the other way around.

2. In fact, they make rules wherever they go.

And remember: Do not break these rules. If you do, your precious kitty will not hesitate to show you his "not-so-nice" side.

6. Boxes are the best. Period.

It doesn't matter if you've spent thousands of dollars on a luxury cat bed, your cat will inevitably end up sleeping in the box that the bed came in instead.

7. These beings make their own decisions. "Training" them is an impossible dream that people have tried and failed to attain for centuries.

Just when you get started working, your kitten sits her bum right atop your keyboard.

Your excuse is so much more valid than that "my dog ate my homework" bullshit.

8. You, when your cat falls asleep on your lap and you don't want to wake him/her, so you just stay there, unmoving, until you die of natural causes.

It doesn't matter if your legs fall asleep and you have to cut them off. Your cat's comfort is the most important thing in the world, and you wouldn't dare compromise it for your own selfish needs.

16. When you have a kitty in the house, you don't need to go to the circus.

Who needs Cirque du Soleil when you have a loving being at home who is just as skilled at climbing curtains and performing incredible feats?

18. And there is no better therapy than the little massages given by cats.

Their tiny paws hold the power to cure all suffering. Well, maybe not, but they do feel great and fill us with love. <3
