No Kids, Just Cats

cats, counterdependency

I have no problem referring to myself as a cat lady.

In fact, I wear it as a badge of honor.

Independence is one of my core characteristics, and having a cat in my life reinforces this trait. Every time I want to squeeze a cat and never let it go, it squirms to get away. Cats, after all, like their space and want love on their own terms- much like myself.

I definitely know better than to try and put a cat in a box, because I would never want someone to put me in one.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful female caregivers out there- whether it’s to felines, canines, or (gasp), humans.
