How often have you heard a man say, ‘Oh…I'm more of a cat-guy than a dog-guy?’ Hmmm…. I do recall hearing that phrase in the 2009 movie The Ugly Truth. But people, Hollywood ain't real!! The reality is, everyday cats are being understated by our male companions in preference for what is referred to as ‘mans best friend'. Due to this macho title bestowed upon the ownership of a dog, many cat-loving men are keeping themselves hidden in the ‘Cat Closet', too embarrassed to declare their affection for these feeble felines. But cat-loving men all over the world, you're not the only one who's best friend is a kitty-cat called Mittsy instead of a pooch called Fido.
So why is it that men will often choose a macho, German Shepherd over a cute, fluffy Ragdoll, even if it’s the kitten their heart secretly desires? Could it simply be denial, or does their decision stem from a primitive compulsion to prove their masculinity to their family and friends? Women have fought for equality for many years, so all you men out there....it's your turn to stand up and fight for your right to be a cat-lover without the fear of prejudice.
As a single woman in today’s society, I think a cat-loving man is…..‘Raaargh!’ To me it exemplifies that he is Intelligent! Confident! Affectionate! and Mischievous! In fact, men could be using their love of cats to their advantage rather than shying away in denial. I doubt there would be many, if any women out there who would doubt a man's masculinity because he is a Cat-Guy.
Boys! Men! Gentlemen! Leap out of that cat-closet in which you're hiding…. Jump on that Cat Lovers bandwagon.... and most importantly, don' be afraid to say it loud and proud….
