MY CAT MADE ME DO IT—Tales from Regular Folks & Celebrities about Feline Super Powers

Our fascination with felines is hardly new.

Cave paintings of cats date back 10,000 years. And, today, “cats” is one of the most-searched-for terms on the Internet. Moreover, YouTube videos starring felines account for more than 26 billion views, making them the single most popular category on the platform.

The reason is obvious, cats have “super powers” like leaping tall heights—the world record for the highest feline jump is ten feet, and they always land right side up, even if falling from 30 stories. Hello, none of us could do that!

But one of their most amazing powers is the control they wield over us humans. Come on, you know what I mean. With a look, they can make us slaves to their every whim. They can make us love them, and treat them like gold. In effect, they can make us do things that they want.  

So, I’m working on a project called, MY CAT MADE ME DO IT. Here’s one true life story that recently happened that briefly explains those super powers.

My New Cat Made…others adopt fellow strays

Cats rule, okay. When a New Jersey-based pet adoption centre posted photos of one of its many kitties waiting to be adopted, the sad face of abandoned kitty “Fishtopher” went viral after his picture was posted on social media. His sad, sad visage inspired hundreds of people to inquire about adopting him and they were waiting in line the next morning. Fishtopher, a cute chubby Tabby, was scooped up and when his new owners posted photos of him adjusting to his new home, his own Instagram page immediately attracted over 14K followers. Moreover, his story inspired several other of his former stray partners to also be adopted by the people waiting in line, including these cute kitties: DiGiorno, Dingus, Eggplant, Lobster, Olive Oil, and wait for it…Catwoman.

Stay tuned for more stories from people: My Cat Made Me…commit insurance fraud; My Cat Made Me…uncover a homicide or so I thought; and from people like  pop superstar Taylor Swift whose own cat Benjamin made her into an official “cat lady.”

I know, MEOW!

    My cat loves disturbing my sleep. I was pissed for a while, now I am used to it. I love my cat to death.

    James, cool story, how did the kitty disturb your sleep, what was his/her point? Trying to control you, hahah?

  • James Miller

    In reply to: ashley collie

    My kitty is possessive and jealous of my partner.

  • ashley collie

    How and why does your cat do that, James? Any specific stories on he/she wanting something from you? Cheers

    People say a cat doesn't have feelings but l strongly disagree

  • ashley collie

    In reply to: Rob Ernest

    Rob, how has your kitty expressed its feelings to you? Mind control or something? ;)

  • Rob Ernest

    In reply to: ashley collie

    I don't know mate. I can feel it. My cat follows me everywhere I go. Some cats are more affectionate than others.

  • ashley collie

    In reply to: Rob Ernest

    Hey, Rob, how has your cat expressed its feelings, in what ways? Thanks.

  • John Wallace

    Getting hugged by a cat is one of the greatest and cutest things. Cats > Dogs

  • ashley collie

    In reply to: John Wallace

    Hey, John, why is it better with cats, as dogs can be pretty friendly, too? Cheers

  • Alex Danileson

    There are two escapes from the misery of life: music and cats.

  • ashley collie

    In reply to: Alex Danileson

    Alex, great answer, but why cats and music specifically, how do they bring escape? Cheers

  • Sunil Patel

    My cat showed me more love than my family and exes combined

  • ashley collie

    In reply to: Sunil Patel

    Sunil, great answer, but also a tad tragic, LOL. How does your cat show more love, in what ways? Cheers!

  • Tammy Webb

    I will be honest. Being with cats melt my heart!

  • ashley collie

    In reply to: Tammy Webb

    Tammy, how many do you have, and can you give an example of how they melt your heart? Cheers

    Unconditional Love For Cats

  • ashley collie

    In reply to: Sasha V

    Why unconditional, Sasha, what do they give back to you? Cheers

  • Sasha V

    In reply to: ashley collie

    I recently broke up with my boyfriend. That was the most painful experience I've ever had. Having a cat changed my life. I don't need a boyfriend to feel loved. Just playing with my cat provides me more comfort and happiness.
