Cat person

I am a cat person.

Not in the sense that I like cats more than dogs,

but I see myself more of a cat than a dog.

I am gentle and fluid and smooth.

I do not care about food.

Yes, I can be hungry, and I can eat your food.

But I will not love you more just because you feed me.

I don’t care about that, and I will never will.

I perceive love differently.

Can you stay with me while I have my mood swings?

Can you stay with me when I am snarky or making punchy remarks?

Can you stay with me when I don't want to see anyone and be by myself?

Can you touch me and hug me when I need it?

And accept that there are times when I can't receive touch?

I am not a dog.

I am much more complicated.

I have a multitude of paradoxes inside me.

I can crave for distance and closeness at the same time.

I love and despise smartness at the same time.

I can look at you with admiration,

but I can also be completely detached.

It is that simple.

You wouldn't see full-time adoration in my eyes.

I am not a dog. My love is not unconditional.

It can be, sure, but not exclusively.

I don’t accept you the way you are, because you feed me.

I know you can be better.

It’s about future for me too. Not only now.

Now is beautiful and powerful but it's not enough for me.

There can be more. I am demanding.

I care about details too.

I care about my looks, my brain, my body, my emotions.

Everything matters. Not just food.

I am a cat. Everything matters to me.

I am a cat. I am gentle being.

My touch gives you pleasure.

But beware, I can bite and scratch your face.

I am an intelligent being but I'm a wild animal too.

Be genuine, pay attention, listen, care, and we will be good.
