Cat People: Are We Humanizing Our Cats Over The Line?  

Animal lovers around the world would surely agree that having beloved animal(s) at home is considered as family member. Our feelings and thoughts towards them is the same as we are socializing with our fellow human. Attentive, caring and loving.

Cats - as a unique creation of God among other incredible things He created - have been well equipped with every ‘sophisticated instruments’ cats needed. Cats are delicately well designed in nature to survive in this world together with human. After cats being domesticated by human, the relationship between cats and human have becoming much closer.

I regard cats are unique companion for us at home. Based on my long observations, they are the only one of its kinds among other animals. A delicate creature, in a way when they become so attached with us, it is practically a difficult task to distinct whether we copy their behavior, or they are the copy cat! They have been mingled and blended with our personalities and characters. The distinction between cats and humans become blur when people are too much falling in love and getting over attached – like stamp on envelope - with their furry companions.

The hardest part of being in love is to accept them just they way they are. Once ever said to me, what is true love? Embrace a rose, as a wholeness beauty including its thorn. This fruitful sentence is prevailing to any kind of beings.

Let’s see if this video will stumble upon you…

Can we as cat lovers accept our beloved cats just they way they are?
Let them exist, respect their rights and share the love in nature way as it is . . . . .

Love came
flowed like blood
beneath skin, through veins
emptied me of my self
filled me
with the Beloved
till every limb
every organ was seized
and occupied
till only
my name remains.
the rest is It.
(excerpt from Abu-Said Abil-Kheir)

    cats are soft to the touch but difficult as a pet. they are like queens and kings who would not bend and will only allow you to cuddle them because they need something..

    and i love cats!

    Hi Eri,

    Our pets do tend to become substitute children, and we forget they're not humans, but animals. I think it's amazing that the lady in the video trained her cat to eat with utensils, but she's feeding her too much of the wrong foods for a cat. Feeding a kitty human food will more than likely cause the kitty health problems in the future.

    Interesting post. We project our emotions onto our pets. The cat in the video could care less about meeting Oprah or Tiger Woods, but it's obvious her owner would like to! I love my kitty, but I do remember that she's a cat, not a person.

    I think we should "meet in the middle."

    Cats and people obviously have different abilities, physically.

    But I think it's wonderful to think of how we are so alike, psychically.

    We both think, feel, have various personalities, and, most of all, have the ability to love.

    That is the greatest gift we share with our animal friends.

    A cat is the BEST animal for a home: they're silent, clean, soft to touch, firendly, funny, good mates and... they keep mouses away!
    I don't "humanize" my cats, I love them just the way they are!
