Unlike popular belief, women are not really like cats at all. Men take a lot of buttering up before they’ll come close to you and let you pet them. Dogs, on the other hand, are quick to communicate and party along with other dogs while taking in the attention of their owners.
Some men won’t give you the time of day because they’re too busy in their own thoughts while basking in the sun.
Men are loners for the most part but if you get these men or cats together you’ll see that they can get themselves into mischief. Once the fun is done the cats then disperse and it’s time for alone time again. Cats understand this idea and respect each other for it. I come to realize that so do men.
They don’t crave attention, they don’t need direction, and they don’t need to communicate all the time. That’s the way cats are and I’ve come to realize that a lot of men are the same way.
Now I’m writing this from a woman’s perspective. I’ve been with the same man for 8 years and if there’s one thing I learned is that my man enjoys his moments of silence.
He enjoys his meals, and his time to play and even enjoys going out to work and coming back home much like a cat who enjoys hunting down mice and bringing it back to their owners.
After a hards day of work I find that my husband can keep his day to himself but after a meal, some cuddling, he’ll then begin to purr.
This is the only way I can have him discuss deeper things like his feelings, his hurts, history, and family. This is the way I can get him to connect with me.
I love it because, like a cat, he chooses when to open up to me instead of always being open. It also means that another random woman cannot enter his deep psyche without intimacy and trust.
Some people believe men can be like dogs, and in a sense, men can be like dogs amongst other men, but to a woman, a man is a cat.
