Your cat is purrfect for you.
20 Reasons Why A Cat Is Actually Better Than A Boyfriend

Forget about Tinder or any other dating app, your perfect life companion can actually be found at a local SPCA. I'm not talking about a dog though, that's way too much commitment. A cat is your best match! Crazy cat ladies are not that crazy after all... they might actually have found the secret to life's happiness.

Cats are awesome. If you're not yet convinced that cats are the best, here are 20 reasons why having a cat is actually better than having a boyfriend.

1. Cats are way cuter

Boyfriends have morning breath, they fart and can get really gross. Cats are always cute, fluffy and adorable.

2. Cats don't care what you look like

Cats literally do not care if you put on a few extra pounds or look like shit. They will never say something like, "You look tired today, honey".

3. Cats don't play mind games

Boyfriends are really good at playing mind games. Like not calling back, ignoring you, not being clear about their intentions... You won't have to worry about any of these things with your cat. Ever.

4. You can have more than one cat

What are girls that have more than one boyfriend called? That's right, they're called sluts. Guess what though? You're the opposite of slut if you own more than one cat. Also, you can have more than one cat and not worry about them finding out about each other... because they really don't care.

5. Cuddling your cat doesn't lead to anything

You can't JUST cuddle with your boyfriend. Cuddles always have to lead to sex with them. Boyfriends will never understand that sometimes you just want to cuddle. Cats totally get it. They're your best cuddle buddies with no strings attached.

6. Cats are in it for the long run

You don't always know where you stand with your boyfriend. Cats, however, are 100% invested in your relationship and are in it for the long run. You won't ever have to question their intentions with you.

7. Your parents will love your cat

Parents might not always approve of your boyfriend. You won't ever have to face this problem with your cat, of course. Your parents will LOVE your cat.

9. Cats don't lose it on you if you go out with your girlfriends

Your boyfriend most probably hates it when you go out with your girlfriends. More so, he will get super upset if he finds out that other guys were trying to pick you up or if you accidentally flirted with some dude. Cats. Don't. Care. Go out, have fun, your cat will be patiently waiting for you at home and won't ever give you shit upon your arrival.

10. Cats will always listen to you

Your boyfriend doesn't care about your girl circle drama. Your cat, on the other side, will want to hear all about it without interrupting you.

11. Cats never have FOMO

You know when you just want to stay in but your boyfriend wants to go out badly. Like, dude, can't we just chill tonight? Cats won't ever want to go out. Your cat loves to stay in! In fact, it's his favorite thing to do.

12. Cats will never argue with you

Arguing with your boyfriend is the worst thing of life. It can get really ugly. Excessive arguing often leads to break ups. You won't ever have an argument with your cat. How can you argue with them anyway? Cats are so freaking cute even if they kill your plant or something.

13. You don't need to cook for your cat

You'll most probably have to cook for your boyfriend. In addition, boyfriends will often make comments about your food. Like, "Honey, we ate the same thing yesterday!" Your cat will eat the same damn thing every day. Not to mention it only takes 2 seconds to open a tin of cat food.

14. Cats don't care if you want to watch chick flicks

Want to watch 100 episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians back to back? Your cat has zero problems with that. Zero.

15. Cats don't comment on your eating habits

If you feel like stuffing your face with nachos really late at night, your cat will not mind that at all. Cats won't ever tell you "A minute on your lips, a lifetime on your hips" type of BS.

16. Cats don't mind you getting drunk

While your boyfriend might have a major problem with your drunk behavior, your cat will not care about it. You can be a hot mess and your cat will come cuddle with you just the same.

Cats will stick with you through thick and thin. Literally, no matter what happens, they will be by your side all fluffy and cuddly.

19. You can train your cat

You can train your cat to do pretty much anything. Some cats are trained to ride freaking tiny bicycles. You can't even train your boyfriend to put the toilet seat down. WTF?!

20. Your cat loves to sleep

Most boyfriends love to stay up late and play video games or watch some weird shit on TV. Cats understand your need for beauty sleep and will join you in bed always.
