Hello Fweinds! My name is Simon and as your resident cat, I must tell you humans that cats are the best!

Now as if you already didn’t know that, dogs seemed to have earned the title as “man’s best friend”, however, I must attest that cats can be just as loving and affectionate. Think about it, we are the best lifelong companions.

We fluffy felines are loyal to our mommies and daddies and can be emotional caregivers. As they form attachments to their fur babies, we kitties tend to do the same with our humans. In our “pawsome” way of reading our caretaker’s emotions, we know when they need a little extra loving.

Not to mention we are experts at cuddling during nap time. We love to lounge around and be lazy when we want to!

I have heard around the litter box that we kitties tend to be aloof, but that could not be further from the truth. Although we might not be the easiest pet around to read, we are used to being independent which makes us low maintenance. There is no need to take us out on a walk or have us groomed.

We cats also depend on the security of our owner in addition to an environment where we are constantly doted on. Though that should be easy because of our undeniable cuteness and adorable meows. Cats are also quick learners and can influence good behavior (aka we won’t eat your homework).

Oh! We won’t roll around in the mud either.

The best part of all is that we contribute to good health! Here at Catfluence, we are aware of the mental toll stress, anxiety, and depression can have on a human. Mental health is an important aspect of general health.

It is said by AKC Reunite that our purr alone can be medically therapeutic to people (Ranard, n.d.). It is scientifically proven that we can even have a positive effect on your physical health. We cats are very personable and know just how to make you feel better!

Now many would argue that other pets have the same qualities we kitties do, but that is simply impossible – we are one of a kind!
