If you’re my friend on Facebook, you may have noticed I have a certain
obsession fondness for a particular cat–Grumpy Cat. She is absolutely my favorite. I love her cute little scrunched-up face, and her big round eyes, and her adorable sour expression… Isn’t she just the best? Now, I know some of you are dog people and I get that. I love dogs too. But, cats hold a special place in my heart. Maybe it’s their bad attitudes, their sense of entitlement, their ability to take over an entire bed while you’re hanging off the edge for dear life because you’re afraid to move them.
Why am I blogging about cats? Because Grumpy Cat–and cats in general–can be easily compared to our favorite bad-ass vampire romance novel heroes. How? Let’s explore the qualities we like (or at least tolerate) in our feline companions:
- They are territorial
- They are fearless
- They possess unmatched hunting skills
- They are stealthy
- They like to play with their food
- They appear to be emotionless until they’ve decided to lavish affection on the person they love
- They are nocturnal
Now, think about your favorite paranormal romance heroes? Can any of the qualities on the above list be used to describe your favorite bad-boy vampire?
Do you have anything to add to the list? Do you love Grumpy Cat?
