Do you experience ailurophilia, a.k.a an extreme liking or love for cats? And if so, have you ever walked into a fellow cat lover’s house and tried to make friends with their fur baby, only to have the cat hater in your squad get all the attention from Fluffer-Doodles?
Has Fluffy been breaking into the Fancy Feast stash, you ask? Maybe, but her lady curves are beautiful, and you love her anyway, you tell yourself. Then the thought crosses your mind. My Fluffy? No. Never. Oh sh*t, maybe. Is my little fur baby all grown up? I’m gonna kick that street cat’s ass!
If you find yourself having this inner dialogue, then there’s a high likelihood that your little, precious Fluffy isn’t so little anymore and may be expecting.
Okay, first thing’s first: Cats AREN’T dogs. I can’t tell you how many people have affirmed that cats are snobby and rude and don’t show affection towards humans like their beloved canines do. These people obviously aren’t familiar with cats and simply don’t know the facts! People constantly try to compare cat behavior to dog behavior, and this cat vs. dog mentality is rather absurd if you really think about it… These are two completely different species we’re talking about here. Although your cat may not come running up to you with a bone in his mouth, wagging his tail, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you!
