We were talking about Cat Ladies at work today, the ladies that have 57 cats and she loves them all and never has children because “the cats are her children”, when someone mockingly said “you’re being sexist”. My brain, kinda mushy from the day anyway, decided to explore.
What it came up with was an observation that I don’t know any single guys who have been living alone who owned a cat. None. Dudes just don’t need cats. I have no reason to account for this, but an informal survey at the office quickly supported my observation.
Sure, single guys will take care of someone else’s cat for extended periods of time. Guys might even verbally assert “I’m thinking about getting a cat, it’d be way easier than having a dog in my apartment.” But I think at the end of the day you’d be hard pressed to find a guy who owns a cat of his own volition. Girls are crazy.
