Most people believe that women are the catty ones. Well, meow, I beg to differ. Our furry feline friends have much more in common with the males of our species then women do. These traits may be observed by the categories of felines including the fat cat, the play kitty, the hunter, and the cat’s cat.
There is always-cute roly-poly fat cat. So cute and fuzzy, never does this pussey cat mind if you scratch his belly or behind his ears, in fact he’ll encourage the pampering because as his human, it’s your job to make sure he gets his cream. Lying stretched out in the most comfortable chair, he opens eyes only when disturbed, or a partially interesting happening is within his view range. The feline expects meals to be on time and served appropriately, god forbid you serve dinner late. Most of al you cannot forget to groom your lazy friend, for the dear cat can’t reach on order to clean its own back so dandruff is often the case, and bathing must be done for him.
Everybody loves a play kitty. They are the fun ones, always loving to play games and run around. These hyperactive cats like o be petted and adored but please don’t pick them up or grow over affectionate because lickity split, they run only to come back when they hear the treats being served. They are completely finicky, only in it for the games. People, people, people, they can never get enough, nor will they ever hold a favorite for over a day. Anyone willing to throw that jingling ball or run around with the yarn is a new friend son discarded when the nest ball thrower arrives.
Ah, now the big macho hunters come to our attention, the feline who can never get enough competition. Chasing that mouse, pouncing on that bird, proving to that human they won’t go into the cage, it’s always about being the top cat. Most of the time, they don’t have the time or the ability to be very affectionate. They love their sporting activities coming home for meals or perhaps a bed to sleep in. The feline predators, even with faults are great protectors. You would tempt a furry fury if you dare threaten the one who provides the gourmet meals. Sharp claws and a cruel bite will be you payment along with high blood loss. These tom cats show their battles scars proudly, never worrying about their rumpled sate, who do they have to look good for? Sometimes they may even bring you home a trophy of their efforts which, of course, you must oooh and ah over while giving them a pat on the head, or they will, inevitable, sulk.
Last, but of course we would never say the least with this particular feline, the cat’s cat. We all know them. The cold stares of contempt, the turned backs, the evil grins, even the yowls of pain if we step on their tail 9of course we did it on purpose). We must always be grateful that they allow us to sleep in their beds, live in their house, and eat at their table. They hiss, they scream and they scratch if we dare pick them up when they don’t feel like it and if the dinner is acceptable, they condescendingly eat what we give them. However, no one can ever call them unaffectionate because deep down, they don’t mind out incessant chatter or reading the morning paper. In fact, they love sitting in laps, sleeping with you in their bed, and being scratched behind the ears. Secretly the tenderfeet purr at your attention and play favorites quite readily. If only the snobby fur balls expressed their feelings more often, made you feel a bit more loved, life with them would be easier.
Fat and content, playful, macho, or snobby, cats and men can make wonderful pets, that is if you can stand the attitudes. Cats at least are so cute and furry, you will forgive them for almost anything, men on the other hand, can’t always claim the beauty and grace, which comes with the feline territory. Therefore, he next time some one calls a woman catty, tell them no, men are the ones who identify with the felines.
