All about cats

What do cats teach us

What do they know that we don't? What do they know that we can't?

These are questions that I've struggled with for years, and I'm not alone. They've been asked by philosophers and psychologists and scientists, and they've been answered with the same tired platitudes: "They love unconditionally," "They're selfless," "They're empathetic," "They're gentle."

But we're wrong. Cats aren't any of those things.

In fact, they're very much the opposite.

Cats are not nice. They are not loving. They are not selfless. They are not empathetic. They are not gentle.

And they're not very smart, either.

That's the thing about cats. They're not people. They're not human. And that's the thing about us. We're not cats. We're not cats. We're not cats.

So let's take a look at the ways cats are not people.

1. They don't want to be your friend.

I've always known that cats are not people. But I didn't realize that they don't want to be friends. They don't want to be your friend.

When we're young, we don't realize that other beings have their own separate personalities and interests. It's only when we start to make friends with other creatures that we start to realize that every creature is different.

Cats have no interest in being your friend. They have nothing in common with us. They don't want to play with you or bond with you or become your friend. They don't want to spend time with you. They don't want you to think of them as your friend.

Cats don't want to be friends.

2. Cats don't care what you think.

Cats have no interest in being your friend. They have nothing in common with us. They don't want to play with you or bond with you or become your friend. They don't want you to think of them as your friend. They don't want you to care about them at all.

Cats don't care about your opinion.

3. Cats don't care about you.

Cats have no interest in being your friend. They have nothing in common with us. They don't want to play with you or bond with you or become your friend.

Easy: A Jellicle is a cat. Specifically, a scruffy type of cat that was first introduced in T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats (a book of poetry originally published in 1939 that inspired the musical). They are nocturnal, hang out at something called the Jellicle Ball, and—as you can plainly see—are the stuff of nightmares. Read more
