Hi! I’m a cat and I’m here to tell you what it’s like to be me. Only joking, I’m a human, and I fucking hate cats. They’re arrogant pricks. But, if I had to come back as anything in the next life, it would defo be a house moggy.

They have literally no loyalty at all.
And, if they’re really in a bind, they can just live in the wild for a bit. They don’t give two tiny cat shits. Obviously they prefer the warm, but if needs must they’ll be outta there.
