Women take twice as long to seek medical care for themselves than they do for their pets, study reveals — 6 Comments

  1. We can call women nurturers; but, it all depends…
    I believe that women will place their children ahead of themselves. But, it would be hard to make a case for any cat. As long as a cat or any other animal is considered to be “just an animal”, they are placed on a back burner. Back burners are piled to the ceiling with dead/dying cats that aren’t considered in the same category as beloved children.
    I’m a hard ass when it comes to cats and children. If no cat ranks to the level of child, then you can’t have them. Please rehome.

    • Dee, I have no children — only 13 adopted/rescued *kids*. . and they ALWAYS come first. . . my kitties are little people to me and I love them dearly. . . (that was why I put kids in asterisks — I call my kitties my kids!! ♥♥♥

  2. Michael. . . one thing to say. . . GUILTY AS CHARGED. . . LOL!! But of course, my *kids* come first!! ♥♥♥

  3. I believe it, but it’s another study that is opposite to my personal experience. 90% of the women I’ve known from my neighborhood have been terrible toward cats, especially compared to myself. I think people are afraid of being called crazy cat-lady/persons that even the lovers/owners even avoid talking about their own, and if they do, they’re dismissive, indifferent, change the topic or even hostile about them. I know they’re kind of dumb as to cat-care. If my neighborhood is typical, our society is in trouble. I wonder if the women in the study may have been atypical in some respects… I don’t know.
