How many people are willing to admit that your best friend is a cat?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Just wondering how many other members here will honestly admit that their best friend is a cat? I am owned by 6 indoor cats. My best friend is a cat. I find that their love is unconditional which IMHO is unheard of in the real world with people to people love. Cats offer love that does not matter what you look like physically.....how much money that you bring home.....where you live in the world...... and.....how much of a dirty past that you come to the plate with in a relationship Cats are always honest and generally are trustworthy animals unlike many human beings today Who is willing to admit that their cat is their best friend in the world?

I'd rather be home with my cats then with most people. I have few friends and I love their company, but after waiting on 90% morons all day, I'd rather just be home in the company of fantastically smart felines!

oh yeah ill admit it, they become like "little people" to me. Id have to say sabastian is my bestie, hes been with me since i was 18 and moved from apt to apt with me and was always there for me when i needed a cuddle buddy or when i needed someone to cry to, gives me unconditional love and i love him back just as much

Well, some people wouldn't really consider a spouse a "best friend".

I must admit that as the day wears on at work my thoughts normally drift to "I can't wait to get home and be with my fur babies."

My SO is defiantly my best friend but I must admit that my little Max is one of my best friends too. There is nothing better in the world than the way he waits for me to come home and then races to the cat tree to get up to the level where he can head butt me when I walk past. It's become our daily ritual. He is also my TV watching buddy as well as my teddy bear at night. He doesn't just snuggle next to me at night, he needs to be held and I always oblige.

My other cats are all great and sweet and love bugs (well except my girl but that's okay) but Max is just in a whole other category.

Absolutely. The last 8 or 9 years have had me seeing enough of that which is so unimpressive about human relationships, that the balance of my concern and compassion is directed toward my cats. So much so, that I will find myself stressing out over new ways to keep them happy and content.

In some ways my life has become more empty, denying myself as much human contact/concern, but in other ways the feelings that I do have are more rooted in that which is genuine; instead of all of the BS that goes with human interaction, everyone feeding their egos, posturing themselves as victims, and the like.

And my cats are much better listeners.

Mizzy is by best friend, even through sometimes she forgets and you see her wild side, were she bites me for no reson, but i still love her to bits. Becauase when she is nice she lovely but when she bad she is reallt bad.

You do not state if you are married or not. My wife is my best friend but Persi certainly comes in at number two (sorry, Alley).

ABSOLUTELY!
Maia is with out a doubt my best friend! If I had a boyfriend, she would probably be pretty upset about it............She doesn't like strangers at all, and is glued to my side, sleeps on top of me! I am fine being single for now, but if and when I meet the right guy, he's going to have a challenge between the two of us excepting him!
post #14 of 29
Hmm, probably not.

I get teary eyed at the thought of maybe having to put Kitty to sleep someday. She is my best friend probably, in the truest sense of the word. I have a fiance and three veryt very close friends, so no shes not my best friend but i would do just about anything to be with her and Holly

oh heck yeah... Bodhi will always be my BFF. I really think we are soulmates and that he was reincarnated as a cat to come and be with me. I mean, I LOVE Siddha to pieces too, but Bodhi and I have something special.

My husband is my soul mate, but Thor is my little buddy. I love Pandora dearly, but she's more my husband's cat - he picked her out even though she stays with me throughout the day (and Thor stays with him) - we have a special bond with each of our cats!

Yes, may cats have always been my best friends, as I'm a bit of a loner. There's this "love song" by Colin Hay with a few lines that make me think of my feline friends:

I never feel alone when I'm with you
I never have to talk when I'm with you
It really is a lonely world
It helps if you have someone to hold
I want that someone to be you

I enjoy spending time at home, with my pets then out partying with friends. I do have a social life, but with one friend who is a dog lover, pretty much everything we do is dog related.

For many many years my cats were my best friends. I would come home from work, open the door and had little smiling cat faces looking up at me saying, "We are so glad your home". Kitty hugs all around.

Haveing gotten married later on in life, Now i have the cat and Harry that greets me when I come home. Life is good.

Monti was totally my best friend. My heart still aches because my best friend is gone.

I'm hoping that Poppy will become my new best friend.

I'm sure he will be, just look at that sweet little face!

I will glady admit they are my best friends. Unfortunately most two legged friends and family don't get it and give grief with comments like "you need a life" I Have one thank you very much!
post #26 of 29
Yep, I confess.

Kitty was my best friend


'Unfortunately most two legged friends and family don't get it and give grief with comments like "you need a life" I Have one thank you very much!'


I get that all the time. People are so rude!

I'm divorced and boyfriendless at the moment. Yes, I will admit that Maggie is my best friend! I love my dog to pieces but cats seem to understand emotions a lot better. My dog greets me at the door but it's a quick hi and outside she wants to go. The cat will stay by me when I get in and not leave my side all night. She mews at the window when I leave the house which makes me feel so guilty. When I'm sick or sad, it's Maggie who lays by my side and comforts me for however long it takes. She also tries to humor me when I'm in one of my quiet moods. Cats are God's angels
(Unlike humans, she isn't opinionated or judgemental)
