Reader Stories: Men and Their Cats


Men and the cats they love share a special bond which is like no other on this earth. You are the guys who are so secure in your personas that you don't feel threatened by the perceived "independence" of cats. You don't need a pet who will fall all over you to seek love, but one who will appreciate you as you are with no false expectations. You love your cats unconditionally, as they do you.

Since you are already so secure, you'll certainly be willing to share your relationship with your favorite cat. Read other stories by guys who love cats, then post your own, along with up to two photos, with this easy form .
