In honor of Memorial Day (weekend) here are some patriotic cat pictures and 7 reasons why cats love America. Enjoy your weekend, be safe, and remember all the living and fallen soldiers who fought for your freedom! (I will not apologize for ‘Merican Nyan Cat at the bottom of the page.)
1.) The Food
What cat doesn’t love food!? And if you live in America, you know it is known for its wide variety or foods from all over the world. They don’t call it the melting pot for nothing! Have you looked at the cat food aisle in your pet store lately? SO. MANY. OPTIONS!
Being able to walk the streets or stay in doors is true freedom. Most people are more than willing to feed a stray cat and care for the ones without homes. So even if a cat doesn’t have a home, it more than likely has someone who feeds it. Living as free as the birds! And if you are a cat who wants a home, there are shelters all across America who spend thousands (even millions) caring for stray cats and finding them forever homes.
3.) The Lazy Lifestyle
Hours in front of the magical light box, weird yet interesting TV shows, pizza on Friday nights, sleeping in on the weekends… What is not to like for a cat!? Most people live a relatively secondary lifestyle and if you know anything about cats, you know they sleep most of their lives so being able to sleep and snuggle their owner most of that time is a real treat.
4.) The Options
Us humans waste thousands on furniture over the course of our life times. This gives one single cat the opportunity to enjoy destroying may different items! I know it can be a pain in the butt when your cat destroys your new $2,000 sofa, but he would have just been as happy destroying a $200 one. Spend less and have more! 🙂
5.) The Weather
From Cali to Maine, the weather changes dramatically. This is great for ALL cat breeds. Some cats require cooler climates, while others (like the Sphinx) need hotter climates. Be sure to take into consideration when owning a pure breed what climate you live in. Have I mentioned the sun? All cats need and love sunshine! Also, in the warmer months, our cats get to enjoy peace and quiet in the home while we are out in the yard enjoying the pool or the garden.
6.) The Animal/Plant Life
Each state has numerous small and large animals in the wild. They also have tons of different plant life. Cats love watching and interacting with both, it is after all part of their nature to be curious. Be sure to bring the plant life indoors if your cat is not allowed outside. Heck! Take it a step further and get a small fish tank for your cat to watch and enjoy. Just be sure to get one with a lid! (I won’t make that mistake again!)
Thanks to Youtube, cats are more adored than ever! The internet alone is fueled by a good percentage of cat videos, pictures, and humor. Not to mention all them crazy cat keepsakes like T’s, slippers, mugs, and beyond! A cat video a day will keep the doctor away! Maybe it is all part of their plan for world domination, if so, they are sure winning in America.
