People? Meh. We could take 'em or leave 'em. But if you try to separate us from our beloved kitties, you're cruising for a bruising.

OK, OK, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration — there are a handful of people in our lives we could never live without (hi, grandma!), but it's also true that our tried-and-true BFFs are our cats. Sure, they can be sassy, standoffish, bratty, territorial and a little stinky, but isn't that true for us all? Cats are unapologetic and own it — which is probably why we love them so dang much. Let's not forget the fact that they make amazing rainy-day cuddle buddies. Plus, they're cute as hell to boot. 

There's nothing like the relationship you have with your cat, and these quotes sum it up perfectly.
