Thousands of years ago, in lands far far away where the sand was hot and the buildings were triangular, cats were considered gods. The ancient Egyptians not only worshipped cats, but they allowed them to join the royal family, buried them ceremoniously, and revered their prowess, beauty, and general amazingness.
Even nowadays, in your mid-city apartment building, where house plants go to die and Uber Eats has the door code, cats are still considered semi-godly. Cats don’t care that you’re having relationship drama or if the neighbor’s bathroom sprung a leak again, they still demand the same respect and high level of care that they recieved when they were the ancient ones. It doesn’t matter if you’re asleep, busy, or just not giving them enough attention, cats always come first. B.A.E.
