How have your cats transformed your life from the moment you've met them till now?
They definitely transformed me into a responsible adult. Of course, I needed to carefully care for them, so I had to reschedule my daily routine to ensure I could give them the best. This made me become a much more sensitive and kind person.
What do your cats mean to you?
They mean a lot to me. They always make me smile. I know they will brighten my day whenever I feel sad. So they are definitely a source of love.
How did you and your cats first meet? Tell it to us in the form of a short story.
When I was younger, I always wanted a cat. My father never liked cats, so it was hard to convince him out cute cats are, that they have a caring nature and how they would be a great addition to our family. We then found a breeder very far from us, but we managed to persuade him to go there. So that was 8 years ago, and we got Cuki. Of course, my father immediately fell in love with her, and we were soo happy! 3 years later, we wanted to share the unconditional love with other cats, so we mated Cuki with a red cat, and suddenly our family grew from 1 cat to 7 :) She had 3 boys and 3 girls. Unfortunately, we couldn’t afford to provide the necessities for 7 big cats (as they grow up) so we gifted the three wonderful girls to our friends. So we now live with 4 cats: a mommy and three boys. :)
What do you think your cats think of you?
I think they think of me as a great partner. We share a lot of love for each other. Obviously, they can think of me as a giver of food, but I believe it’s not the first thing they think of when they see me. Just a love bomb :)
Your cats are part of your family. What are some things they do that make you think that they consider you part of theirs?
I think they trust me, which I've noticed from their body language. For example, rolling, licking me, or looking me in the eye and blinking slowly. As I mentioned they always share some love with me, so I truly believe I’m part of their feline family. :)
What are some accounts your cats like to follow on Instagram?
Why do you feel that it is important to show the world that Cats are Family?
Often I feel like I can appreciate cats more than people. They don’t hate us, show just as much love and their personalities fascinate me. They deserve to be a part of a family because of their gorgeous qualities and the care they show their humans.
