Cats are comforting. Now I’m not going to quote a bunch of studies about how cat owners live longer or anything like that. No, today I’m going to talk about the practical aspect of cat ownership.
Let’s say it is the middle of the night. You’re sleeping soundly, dreaming of how you’ll spend your lottery winnings, when you are awakened by a strange noise in your house. You wonder: “Did burglars break in?” “Do they have guns?” “Can I get to my cell phone to call 911 before they find me?” “Where is my cell phone?” “How many are there?” “Are they coming upstairs?” “Why didn’t I take karate lessons when I had the chance?” Your adrenaline is pumping and your heart is racing.
But, if you are a cat owner, you just think, “Damn cats!” roll over and go back to sleep. It’s very comforting to have cats in the house.
