We're cat people. You might call us crazy, but we might call you lonely. You haven't experienced the good life until you've walked into your bathroom and found your cat in the sink or woken up to a tiny nose against your cheek. We're sure you have plenty of good reasons to hate cats, but we have infinitely more for while we'll always be cat people.
