What Is the Character of the True Cat Lover? — 10 Comments

  1. I don’t think I have looked this deep into the character of of cat people. I love this. I have to read it again. 🙂 I love articles that make me feel good like this. I love your writing.

    • The reason why I wrote it is because there are about nine thousand pages on this website which forces me to explore every possible avenue ;). I think of new ideas in the shower or when exercising. It is a strange life running a cat website 😉

  2. Yes good cat caretakers are caring and sensitive people who feel empathy with their cats and want them to have as good a life as they can give them.
    I sometimes wonder why people who don’t look upon their cats with gratitude for the pleasure of having them in their lives, have a cat at all.
    I hate those people who say the cat is lucky to have a home, especially the people who think that being declawed is a fair price to pay in exchange.
    There are ‘owners’ and ‘caretakers’ and there is a huge difference between them!

    • I came to the conclusion at the end of the article that cat caretakers, genuinely good cat owners, were good people. This was in some ways an unexpected conclusion having written the article and gone through the characteristics and personalities. Of course I knew that all the people who regularly visit this website are good people but it was quite nice to have that confirmed having worked my way through the sorts of characteristics that excellent cat guardians have.

  3. Excellent piece, Michael,

    I think you nailed the character of a true cat lover! This is the character of a “guardian” as opposed to an “owner”.

    Understanding the true nature of felines is essential- and providing them with compassionate, empathetic care is so important. I really enjoyed reading this. Bravo!

    • The content came out of my head except for the main personality traits which I got from Wikipedia. That said, I think it is more or less common sense, really but I also think it is quite nice to analyse it a little bit and try and figure out it is that makes some people excellent cat caretakers.

  4. Agree with this 100 Percent im definitly this it gives me great joy reading this like a peaceness in my heart. Esp the openess and im more of an introvert than extrovert. Another great and wonderful article by michael. 🙂

    • I am pleased you agree with me Kylee. You are very tender hearted. I can tell. It is that which makes you a good cat caretaker.I believe that there is one other thing which makes you a good cat caretaker. You have had some hard times. You have told us that. We all have had hard times actually but I feel you have had some difficult times and it has made you very aware of how other people and other animals feel. That creates empathy and when a person has empathy for their cat companion they will be good at caring for the cat.

      • yea from my early life as a child life wasnt easy but i learned alot and having cats as certainly made my life more better. Without cats i dont think i would be here still, i know thats prob sad but they have made my life better and ive learned alot from them. their unconditional love and understanding.
