Reasons to get a cat.

Cats aren’t for everyone, but if you try these tactics, you can get even the staunchest cat hater to let you have one.

  • Take them to an adoption fair and point out the kittens.
  • Promise that they’ll never have to pet, feed or clean up after the cat.
  • Keep the box in the garage or somewhere out of sight.
  • Remind them that cats never need to be walked.
  • Point out that cats are independent.
  • Casually mention that cats never bark.
  • Swear that you’ll never talk baby-talk to the cat.
  • Buy a laser pointer for them (and the cat) to play with.
