1. Cats will never lie to you.

2. Actually, they can’t even talk so you never have to listen to them say anything dumb.

3. Cats will never argue with you about what to watch on Netflix.

4. Cats won’t ask you for a bite of your food, instead they’ll just steal a little nibble when you aren’t looking.

5. They’ll give you kisses on your forehead without you asking.

6. Your cat will never hook up with your best friend.

7. You won’t be disappointed by any gifts, because cats don’t have money to buy you anything.

8. Cats won’t fight with you when you want to take a picture.

9. They won’t call you fat.

10. They’ll never ask you to change your outfit, because cats don’t care what you wear.

11. It’s cheaper to feed a cat than a boy.

12. Your cat will never steal the blankets in the middle of the night.

13. Cats won’t fight with you.

14. They’re always ready to cuddle.

15. Cats don’t work out, so they won’t urge you to work out as well.

16. They don’t have jobs, so they’ll always have time to hang out.

17. They won’t get mad when you’re feeling needy.

18. Cats don’t have friends so they’ll never ditch you.

19. Your family is their family so you don’t have to impress anyone.

20. You don’t have to update your cat on your plans.

21. Cats won’t ignore your phone calls or texts, because they’re cats and don’t have cell phones.

22. Cats will never fall out of love with you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
