Valentine's Day is a time to let the ones you love know that you care - but let's take a look at why we're hopelessly devoted to our cats on all 364 OTHER days of the year:
Because even though they sometimes act a bit stand-offish ...
... Deep down they can be major softies.
Because sometimes they REALLY want to be left alone ...
... And other times they simply CANNOT be away from you.
They are brave little adventurers ...
... Who are also afraid of the vacuum cleaner.
They are spring-loaded containers of energy ...
... Who can chill harder than anyone around.
Because they know how to use boxes for good ...
They can stretch very tall ...
... or melt into a puddle.
Because they hate bath water ...
... But, for some reason, LOVE sink water.
They can be very helpful ...
... And very distracting.
They are regal and majestic creatures ...
Because they can be mortal enemies with the dog one minute ...
... And life-long cuddle-buddies the next.
Most importantly, they steal our hearts because, for all their mischievous and baffling behavior, they're our BFFs for life.
