Breakup Blues? Why Cats Make Better Partners!

Have you seen this tongue-and-cheek list of why cats make better partners than men? I added a few, so feel free to add more of your own in the comment section below. Ladies, no matter who you date or marry, you will likely find a nugget of truth in this list. So, men take note, or better yet, write your own list about why cats (or dogs, horses, parrots etc.,) make better partners than women!


When a cat sleeps all day it is natural, not annoying.

You never have to spend time with your cat’s mother.

You will never get a call from your cat’s ex.



You can stroke a cat without automatically being expected to have sex.

A cat never comes home drunk after being out all night with friends.

Cats never pretend they know how to fix what is broken.


Cats can fend for themselves.

It is okay if your cat rubs up against the guests in your home.

Cats love rubbing up to your legs regardless if you shaved or not.

Dr Lawrence you are truly a blessing:I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful consultation I just had with you are a life (marriage) saver!! you helped me to see that there is definitely hope for my marriage and that my husband is clearly in a midlife crisis. I was getting totally frustrated, but you helped me to see all the positive steps my husband has been taking toward me.I feel so positive now! Thanks

Yes cats are Gods gift to lonely women.
Cats are fantastic friends ,companions , bedfellows, roommates, persons to share your life with.
For some reason not all men value cats like women do. I have often wondered why.
