My girlfriend has six of these. She moved in and brought her pets. I frankly don't see the point of having animals, but her eyes shine every time she gets to talk about her "litter". Even when she is not interacting with cats, she has cat accessories and cat-themed clothes. Honestly I don't see the hype. Your house smells like cats, they just sleep all day and grow fat. Unless you have a mice issue, they are just a bunch of free loaders.
I don't want to tell her that I dislike them, but it's been getting hard to lie.
