Crazy cat dude

Crazy cat dude - The cat, you and us

A few weeks ago I saw this article that raised my attention. It was about a photographer taking pictures of men with their cats in order to reclaim the figure of the crazy cat dude. Since it couldn’t be more real in our case, Dani is definitely the mad in love cat guy, I thought we could add our bit to the claim of boys being as affected by cats cuteness as we ladies are – although maybe less effusive in their words and manners.

Juno and Dani have a very different relationship from the one she has with me. While I like to hug her and pet her around my arms, sometimes more than she can possibly stand (poor one!), Dani carefully respects her own space. He knows how Juno loves to inspect corners she can’t reach on her own, so they play with the box, the spaceship (remember from here?), travelling around the house and flying up high where she can prospect “new” lands. I like that we have our own different games with her, the box is Dani’s thing.

Another of Dani’s rituals with Juno is to open our bedroom door. Every time Dani arrives at home the same thing happens, Juno runs to the door to greet him for a minute and then goes to the bedroom door (usually closed) and demands him to open it for her. She jumps to the bed so Dani can pet her and then they both leave the bedroom closing the door. It’s funny how she almost never asks me to open that door, she knows it’s part of what she and Dani share together daily.

Which rituals do you have with your little furry one? Do they differ from the ones from your partner? What do you think about crazy cat dudes, maybe more hidden than us girls but definitely as big cat fous as we are?

    My husband LOVES our cats! I send him photos of them during his work day if they are doing something cute, which is always. He’s probably as big of a fan as I am!

      Hahaha I also feel the same sometimes, as I am such a hugging monster Juno occasionally runs from me, but never from Dani :)

      Great to read that your husband is also part of the crazy cat dudes gang :) Juno loves her Whiskas malt ball treats! Which ones does Yoshi favour? Btw, Yoshi is a cool name!

    Yay – this is awesome :) I love hearing fun play time Juno stories! Yay for Dani being a cat guy too! Ben actually got me loving cats so I have a lot to thank for him. Gremlin and I do a lot of grooming together, it’s definitely our thing, I like to play but sometimes I get genuinely scared when it comes to hide and seek or games involving claws, so I used toys with long arm reaches. I like to give Gremlin lots of kisses and Ben likes to carry or we say “promenade” gremlin around the house so he gets a higher perspective on life :P Ben also plays really rough with Gremlin and doesn’t mind being play scratched by him. I still have that tiny ounce somewhere inside of me, of being scared of cats :P but Gremlin is so sweet and knows I’m a super wiener so he makes sure he hides the claws from me!
