Men with cats will cook you dinner, bring you flowers, solve the economic crisis and kick ass at Wii football …

Fun fact: You can't tell from this picture, but I used to live in a house with more cats than roommates.

This is one of the silliest articles I have ever read: More Men are Unabashedly Embracing Their Love of Cats

That is all.

Okay, not it’s not. I just read more of the article (it was so silly I had to stop half-way through and post this). Here is a sample two paragraphs:

Many women agree that guys with cats are extra special.

“They make the best boyfriends because they’re totally cool with staying home and watching a movie,” said Elizabeth Daza, 28, a video producer in Manhattan, who dated a cat-owning man for eight years. “Straight men with cats seem to be really secure and stable. They don’t need to be running around the park and proving their masculinity like the dog guys.”

Really, Elizabeth Daza, really? Men with dogs will never just stay home and watch a movie? I know we’re trying to dispel the crazy old spinster feminist cat lady image here, but I think this is just a little heavy-handed.
