You’re the one who knows how to return a cat’s slow blink, and you’d never be tricked by that tempting belly trap.
Some folks may toss around “cat person” like it’s a bad thing, but hey, those people won’t be on the guest list for your kitty’s next birthday bash! That’s what sets true cat lovers apart. Not everyone gets why you’re so into cats, and that’s fine!
From scooping the litter box to cleaning up hairballs, you know it’s a small price to pay for those nightly kitty kneading sessions. But that’s not all that marks you as a cat person.
With all the joy and fun cats bring into our lives, it’s no wonder we wear the title of “cat person” proudly. And if anyone’s still on the fence about that label, just show them a video of your favorite feline — they’ll likely change their tune.
1. You’ve Got the Inside Scoop on the Slow Blink
Ever been on the receiving end of a cat’s loving slow blink? There’s nothing quite like it, right? (You probably didn’t even need two guesses to know that!) But being a cat person means more.
You understand all the secret signs, like happy purring, playful tail wiggling, and the ultimate display of love — the head butt. But keep in mind, cats are like people; they’re all unique.
So even if your cat’s swishing tail means they’re excited, it could mean something else in another cat. That’s why it’s best to let new furry friends take the lead. That way, you’re sure to become fast pals!
2. Your Home’s a Cat Paradise
Did you build shelves so your cat can climb up the walls? Got a sleek kitty condo sitting in the middle of your living room? Perhaps you’ve even designed a special catio!
You’ve gone all out to make your home a purr-fect place for cats, and aren’t you just tickled that so many brands help you do it without cramping your style (or comfort)? And if you’re up for some nifty DIY cat furniture, we’ve got just what you need!
3. Your Vacations Are All About the Cats You Meet
When folks ask about your last vacation, do you gush about the cats you met instead of the places you visited? Come on, if you didn’t take enough cat photos for a full slideshow, did you even go on vacation
We won’t bat an eye if you chose your last Airbnb just because the host shared pictures of her cat (in fact, we might think it strange if you didn’t). After you get back, instead of chatting about the amazing things you saw, you can’t help but talk about the adorable cats you met (and maybe even got to pet!).
4. The Belly Trap? Not You!
Oh, it’s tempting, isn’t it? That soft, fluffy belly begging for a scratch. But hold on there, friend! You’re a real cat person, and you know that’s a furry little trap.
The moment you touch that tempting tummy, you’re in for a surprise of claws and teeth. And let’s face it, unless you have a (human) buddy around to pop open those cat food jars, you’re going to need that hand in one piece. Stay strong!
5. Your TikTok Is Purr-actically a Cat Channel
You’re all about following cats, cat enthusiasts, cat rescues, anything cat-related, really. Your feed? Cats, cats, and more cats, all the time. (And hey, we’re not judging; we actually think it means you’ve nailed the internet.)
Subscribed to every cat blog? Check! Talking about Instagram cats like they’re old pals? Of course! Because it really does feel that way.
Sure, maybe a dog slips in now and then, but only if it’s a genius pooch that’s made friends with a crafty cat!
6. Christmas Stockings? More Like Cat-mas Stockings!
Christmas with cats is a whole lot merrier, just ask die-hard cat lover Lara Wheless. She’s got only one holiday stocking for human gifts but three personalized ones for her kitties, packed with care, toys, treats, and catnip.
Wondering what to gift your cat for her birthday or special day? We can guide you to the purr-fect playthings, fun bandanas, and more.
7. Alarm Clock? Your Cat’s Got That Covered
Ever since your four-legged friend came home, that alarm clock’s been gathering dust. Your cat’s internal clock has you covered, with meows for breakfast and a morning game of “catch the feet.”
Sure, cats aren’t big on letting you sleep in, and they might just slip away for a sunbeam nap right when you’re making coffee. But hey, you needed to get up, didn’t you? Probably.
8. A Phone Upgrade, Just for Cat Content
Let’s face it, you needed more memory on your phone. Cut back on cat photos and videos? As if! When the sales clerk mentions gigabytes, you’re thinking in terms of cat videos.
That’s the math that makes sense to you. Just a tip, though: showing your favorite cat videos to the sales clerk might not get you a discount. But who knows? You might make a new cat-loving friend!
9. Your Pals Can Spot You at a Bash Without Breaking a Sweat
Finding you at a party isn’t rocket science. If you’re not munching on snacks, you’re surely tucked away in a corner, making pals with the host’s cat.
You’re not shy of being a partygoer, but you’re the sort who’d rather hang out with a purring kitty in a calm room instead of chit-chatting with other people.
10. You’re Wise Enough Not to Put Breakables Where Your Cat Can Get ‘Em
Someone has to test if gravity’s still doing its job, and you know your kitty’s up for the task. From your morning joe and cherished pen to that dainty porcelain figure from your youth, if it’s close to a ledge, watch out!
A curious paw might send it flying. It might get on your nerves when you return to another puddle on the rug, but hey, your cat’s habit of clearing stuff probably keeps your desk neat and tidy, huh?
11. You’ve Let Big Meetings Slide Because You Were Stuck on the Sofa
When there’s a snoozing cat on your lap, you’re pinned. That’s just how it goes! And if that’s not a rule, well, it ought to be.
There’s hardly anything more comforting than a cat snoring away on you, so don’t expect us to mess with that picture-perfect moment. Maybe keep your phone nearby when you’re in your cat’s chosen spot, though, so you can tell folks why you’re running a tad late.
