Dating people that sleep with cats

20 Jan

Not like the old hag who sits in front of your local Shop Rite with aluminum foil on her head.3.

An "I got home and told my cat about my day" bond.6. In other words, don't pretend you're allergic if you just don't like when the girl you're dating has a cat.14. Seeing the guy you're dating pick up and cuddle your cat gives you the same (or more intense) feeling as when you see him hold a baby.17.

When they’re not mewing for whatever the fuck reason, cats are actually highly refined and subtle animals, and, accordingly, cat owners tend to have a heightened appreciation for the art of subtlety and timing.

Cat owners have mastered the art of discerning meaning from the faintest hints of body language and can tell the difference between a tail twitch that says, “I am intently hunting the red dot” and a tail twitch that says, “I’m about to whet my claws on the scratch posts that are your forearms.” You’ll never find yourself over-explaining what’s on your mind when you date a cat person — somehow, their warm hand will find your belly after you ate that extra-large burrito.

There are ways to mitigate these negative effects if you still want to keep kitty in your bed. Having a warm, purring cat or two in bed with you is calming and a stress releaser.

It promotes bonding with your pets and can help you fall asleep. And although they aren’t as good as dogs at raising the alarm when something’s wrong, cats have been known to wake up their people when they smell smoke.

My boyfriend Phil and his cat Crunchie have been together for many years and Crunchie has always slept at the bottom of Phil’s bed.

Last night though, Crunchie came waltzing in wearing a nice new black collar because he’s clearly sleeping with someone else. As he pointed out, if we kick Crunchie out all day when we are at work and then out all night, the cat will have no alternative than to find comfort elsewhere – hence the shiny new collar.Another reason people let their cats into bed with them is that it’s the path of least resistance.While a dog can be trained to sleep in a dog bed on the floor or in a crate, it’s very hard to retrain a cat who has been allowed on the bed.Because, let's face it, cats are often more emotionally intelligent than men. And they have personalities like any other smart animal does. So don't act like her cat is just some lump of fur that lies on the futon all day.8.
