Cats are really soft. I don't even understand why anyone would even compare them to dogs, its an insult. Cats are to be compared to humans, not dogs! In many ways, cats are even more caring than a lot of humans are. Back when I was dating and I was telling my girlfriends how much I love them, I was always comparing them to the cats. I also wrote a poem for a cat that I used to have back in Russia:
Мяу мяу му миу
Спи мяукалка миу
Мягко мягко плачет
The translation of that poem is
Miau miau moo miaoo
Go to sleep miau-sayer miaoo
She trusts me with her paw
And she cries really softly
I liked to move the paw of that cat up and down while reading her that poem. Also when I was that same age I would move my mom's hand up and down and read her that very same poem. And, much later in life, when I had girlfriends, I would move girlfriends hands up and down and read them that poem as well.
When I had my last girlfriend, I was renting a room where the landlord had cats. I would take cats to the room and skype with my girlfriend, and show her cats in front of the camera. There was that one time when the cat was trying to get out of the room and was trying to stand on two paws in order to open a door. Now the door was opening inward, so I purposely sat in front of the door in order for the cat not to be able to open it, and took the laptop with a camera with me. The my girlfriend was saying "let her go" and I was like "but she is really soft" and my girlfriend was like "but she really has to go" and I was like "and I like not letting her go when she really has to, it feels the same way as not letting you off of skype when you have to go".
Also, me and my last girlfriend were playing what we called "softy game". You see I used the word "softy" with two different meanings: on the one hand it meant "cat" and on the other hand it was a nickname for my girlfriend. Likewise I had two different meanings for the word "melt": cat melts when she purrs, and my girlfriend melts when she says "awww" and/or when I hug her. So anyway, when I was calling her a softy she was telling me that I was a bigger softy and I was telling her that no she was a bigger softy. And we would both think of reasons why the other person is a bigger softy. So one of those times she said that if she is a cat I am a tiger, because in her mind a tiger is bigger softy than a cat since a tiger is bigger. And I said yes its true that I am a tiger, but a cat is a bigger softy than a tiger since a cat contains a lot more softness than a tiger does. And she said tiger is just a big soft ball of furr. And I said that cat is a lot softer. And she was like tiger is just like a cat just bigger in size. She also told me that the only reason why a cat doesn't eat a human is that she knows that she can't, but I said no, the cat doesn't eat a human because she is really soft and caring. And she said that if I were to be put in a cell with a cat, and then suddenly either cat were to become larger or I were to become smaller I would be screaming "please help me the cat is getting unsoft" and I was like "no, the cat would never hurt a human no matter what". Then few months down the road she shown me a video of how a cat saved little kid from a dog, and I was like "see thats what I am talking about, that proves that cats are really caring and would never eat a human" and she was like "no, its God that made the cat do it" and I was like "no, the cat did that all by herself because cats are really caring".
There was one time when my girlfriend suggested I give tuna to my landlord's cats in order for them to like me better. I did that, and it worked. So ever since then I was telling her that on my next visit I would get her a tuna in order to "soften her up" (we were few states aoart and it was long distance relationsihp). She told me that she doesn't eat tuna because she only eats local produce and tuna is imported from China, and I was telling her that if I give her that if I were to give her a hug with one hand while spoon-feeding her tuna with the other hand, she would eat it because she would melt. I never actually tried it, but I liked telling her how I would.
