Why do i hate cats

For those who consider cats family members, it is almost inconceivable that some people dislike cats or actually may even hate them. But even though we may not understand why some people may dislike the traits that most cats share, there are still some logical reasons for cat avoidance.

Cat Allergies

It is understandable why people with allergies to cats refuse to be anywhere near them. They may not “hate” cats per se, but they may justifiably hate the way cat dander triggers their mild to severe allergy symptoms.

Cat hair and other pet hair are actually not the culprit; the triggers people react to are the coat-protective proteins secreted by the cat’s skin. People with cat allergies may also be reacting to protein molecules that are secreted into the cat’s saliva or urine.

Unfortunately, there is a widespread belief that cat allergy stems simply from floating “physical dust and hair.” The general public lacks awareness of the true cause: a reaction that is chemical in nature, capable of inducing very strong reactions. Cat allergy can be so severe that it causes anaphylactic reaction much like the life-threatening allergies to nuts and other foods. It can even cause the closing off of airways, requiring emergency medical attention.

Territory Ranges Beyond the Household

Given the chance, most cats will opt to defecate outside in rich and deep garden soil, even if that soil is in a neighbor’s yard. Outside cats will leave their droppings uncovered as a territorial marking to relay information to other cats in the area. Nearby households will not be spared, as cats do not understand property lines or other yard boundaries.

Cats will also prolifically spray urine against outside walls and doors of other dwellings in the neighborhood to mark their outside territories, especially if cats are known to be dwelling inside. This causes two separate problems when the indoor cats either observe the cat outside through a window or smell the acrid odor of the urine spray:

  • Redirected Aggression: When a house cat sees a stranger in its yard, it may reflexively act aggressively toward the closest available cat, maybe one of its innocent housemates.
  • Territorial Spraying: By the same token, if a strange cat is bold enough to spray the outside of a door, the cat who lives there will instinctively mark the inside of the same door.

Killing Birds

Cats, being obligate carnivores, are predators. Whether the cat is indoor-only, free-roaming but owned, or feral and stray, birds and mice are a cat’s favorite prey.

National groups such as the Alley Cats Allies and Alley Cat Rescue have established protocols to support feral cat colonies in managed care. The cats are trapped, neutered or spayed, and then released back into their colonies.

A vital part of all managed care for feral cats is feeding the cats, which precludes their need to kill wild birds for food. Alley Cat Rescue goes a step further in setting aside the kittens and partially tame young adults in their adoption center.

But cat owners can also do their part. Songbirds and brightly colored wild birds bring both audible and visual joy to cat owners’ lives, and many will go to any lengths to protect them from their cats. Think about adding birdhouses and bird nesting material to your exterior surroundings, while at the same time providing more activities for the cats to engage in other than the wildlife. Cats do enjoy watching bird feeders through the window.

Biting and Scratching

Cats are able and willing to communicate both their ​likes and dislikes. They often communicate quite vocally, and sometimes even physically, with a swift swat of outstretched claws when too much petting overstimulates them.

Aggressive scratching and biting behaviors are learned very early in a cat’s life, during kittenhood. Cats that are taught that human hands are playtoys will often bite their owners’ hands when they become adults.

It may be that people who dislike cats had a bad experience with a young cat when they were young children themselves; an adult should always be present to teach both child and kitten about the safe limits of play. Many young families even give up their first cat because of this misunderstood juvenile scratching or biting behavior.

When you teach your cats that scratching and biting behaviors are not allowed, it may just serve as an example to your wary visitors that cats can be re-taught how to not scratch and bite at any age.

Tricky Relationships With Humans

Some people dislike cats because they are fickle and aloof when it comes to relationships with their human housemates. If someone makes a cat uncomfortable or frightened, a cat will be sure to make it known with a hiss or a swat.

In comparison to subordinate and fun-loving dogs, cats may seem unappreciative. In nature, though, cats and dogs evolved very different lifestyles. Dogs evolved to live in family packs, as teamwork was needed to hunt large prey. Wild cats eat smaller prey and evolved to be lone hunters and fishers. And yet it is that very same independent nature of cats that makes them very adaptable to our changing environments and changing daily routines.

As long as cats are socialized to humans as kittens, cats can form close bonds with their humans. But when a self-directed independent cat acts in a standoffish manner, it is most often due to a new person coming into the household.

Even the shy cat is observant and assesses the relative safety of newcomers. Given time to learn, a cat will usually come around to accept them as a friend and trusted caregiver.

I have Igbo relations from Asaba. When asked why they dislike cats their most common response is that cat are most likely used by witches and wizards. Those are the elderly anyway, maybe this generations of Igbos are putting superstitious believes aside.

Southern Nigeria with Christianity just reiterate the common belief in the Middle Ages in Europe when cats were believed to be Witches’ familiars. By some estimates, hundreds of thousands were killed during the great Witches persecutions across Europe. Many regions sought to wipe cats off completely.

Northern Nigeria on the other hand with Islam respect cats because Mohammed had a pet cat. In fact, according to legend, one time the Prophet wanted to go for prayers and his cat was napping on the sleeve of his robe. Rather than disturb the cat, the Prophet instead cut off the sleeve of his robe and left the cat to have a nice sleep.

When I bring up the subject of cats on this blog, as I so often do, it’s party because, well, I’m a bit of a fan. But it’s also because I know it confuses and irritates the misogynists who read this blog, inveterate cat-haters all (or almost all). I’ve never quite understood the depth of the animosity the guys in the manosphere seem to have towards cats.

But now one of these cat haters has provided us with a theoretical explanation for his catphobia. In a post with the suggestive title “Limp-Wristed Cat Lovers, Beautiful Dog Lovers,” the guy behind the PUA blog LaidInNYC explains why real men — and real women — hate cats and love dogs instead.

Dogs are loyal, obedient, and affectionate.

Masculine men love these qualities in our companions, and they are qualities we want in our women as well.

Cats are selfish, independent, and alpha.

Masculine men hate these qualities in our companions. This is because masculine men are the owners, not the owned.

Huh. It’s weird how these descriptions of “alpha males” often read like confessions of massive insecurity. So “masculine men” are so insecure they can’t stand being challenged even by their pets? They’re so threatened by the independence of other creatures that they can’t tolerate a pet that might sometimes wander off into another room to take a nap?

But according to Mr. LaidInNYC, it’s the cat-loving dudes who are the sissies:

95% of men who love cats are either gay or have sub fantasies*. If you like cats, you like not being in control.

Well, all except for a small-percentage of super-alpha dudes who are so manly they can tame even the mighty housecat:

There are a small percentage of straight alpha seducers that like to own cats. The reason is they love dominating an already dominant living thing. They like to stare down and dominate their cats just because they can.

Welcome to my world.

Well, ok, sometimes the cats stare me down.

But what about the women? If masculine men love dogs, shouldn’t feminine women love cats? Then why do manosphere dudes so regularly hurl abuse on women with cats?

Well, LaidInNYC has an answer for that: it turns out that truly feminine women actually prefer dogs to cats, but for a totally different reason than men.

While men love the loyalty and obedience, girls are much more likely to coo over a dogs unconditional love, furry cuddles, and “look how cute he looks when he does that thing with his paw” type stuff.

Feminine girls love their dogs but they don’t enjoy training them, letting them run in an open field and feeling pride when the dog comes right back when called, punishing them when necessary, etc. …

Most of the feminine dog lovers I know already have strong male dominance types in their life, be it a strong father, boyfriend, or husband, and they just like the dog as another source of love. … cats are superfluous when you have a man to obey.

It’s a different story indeed for “the masculine, ugly, old, short-haired, barren feminists who end up being cat ladies.”

Ugly masculine girls, on the other hand, cannot find a male to dominate them in their social life because they lack the beauty. Since being dominated by a strong independent entity who doesn’t need her is so important to a woman, she must seek out that domination. Ugly girls find this in either a career, feminism, cats, or some combination of the three.

A job, a cat, some feminism: the holy trinity of MISANDRY.

I’m not not exactly sure how any of these things “dominate” women, but since Mr. LaidInNYC doesn’t actually seem to know anything about anything, I guess I’ll let that one slide.

In the meantime, I would like to treat you all to pictures of some of the evil independent creatures that make alpha males tremble in fear:

Ok, Koreans, as a general rule, hate cats. Also, they tend to hate the Japanese. I believe the two are connected.

I have been told by a number of my students that cats are considered to be thieves. They raid garbages and stored food, etc. This is main reason given for the Korean dislike of cats.

Koreans dislike the Japanese for more tangible and historically recorded reasons (repeated invasions, a brutal period of occupation and forced assimilation in the early 1900’s, a recent and ongoing attempt to claim a couple of rocky islands between the two countries, etc.).

Now to connect the two:

Why do i hate catsIn Japanese Shinto religion, there is a god that is sacred to shop-owners because it brings in customers and their money. This god, Maneki Neko, is depicted as a cat whose left paw raises and descends repeatedly, drawing in people. Almost every Japanese store or restaurant has a small figurine of Maneki Neko, with moving left paw, in a conspicuous place in their place of business.

The Korean mistrust of Japan, bred from centuries of invasions, has transfered itself into a distrust of cats through this god. The god takes money from customers to the profit of Japanese businesses. The left paw can, if you are in the proper mind-set to see it, the appearance of pick-pocketing hand.

Thus, the Japanese have always been trying to steal from the Koreans. The Japanese cat god, Maneki Neko, is known for taking the money of the unwary shopper and takes the form of a cat. So, to Koreans, the Japanese are epitomized by their thieving cat-god. Cats in general are disliked for being thieves by association.

That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it (unless someone gives me some evidence to prove otherwise).


I hate, no abhor the Japanese. But I was not aware of such connection with Japanese and cats.
I do not think there is that much of known connection to cats, as I see cats are not illegal in Korea. Nor should Koreans care so much about the Japanese gods.

I don’t think Koreans do care about Japanese gods, I was simply making a connection between my observations of a general dislike towards cats in Korea and the well documented dislike of the Japanese. That said, I am curious about whether you “abhor” all Japanese people or just the atrocious acts commited by certain Japanese people in the past and the continued, but veiled, Japanese imperialism in NE Asia. I, also, “abhor” imperialism, whether it is Japanese, America, Chinese, German, or whoever, but I don’t blame an entire nation for acts commited by those in charge.

Well Koreans don’t care about Japanese religions and cats. Cats considered to be food scavengers or stealers, Koreans generally see Japan as threat because of their back stabing nature.

But many ancient Koreans did kept cats & dogs as their pets, we even have ancient grave sites containing cats remains.

Koreans are AFRAID of cats – because they think cats have “scary” eyes.

Cats also used to have rabies in Korea (some wild homeless ones still do) and Koreans were afraid of getting bitten by the rabid cat – as most homeless wild cats in Korea so hiss and spit.

Also – just like eating dogs in Korea – some Koreans also eat cat soup (apparently they believe it cures asthma).

Don’t believe me? – just go to Moron station in Seoul and you will see the cats being made into cat soup (right next to the dogs being turned into stew).

Japanese were the people who introduce small “toy” dogs and Koreans have copied them – now many Koreans have “small toy dogs”.

Koreans just refuse to copy Japanese on the “loving pet cats” – because of being uneducated about cats.

Looking for an answer to the question: Why do cats hate water? On this page, we have gathered for you the most accurate and comprehensive information that will fully answer the question: Why do cats hate water?

Another reason why most cats dislike water is because it weighs down their fur. This is an important survival tactic, because they need speed and agility to avoid a potentially dangerous situation. Finally, most felines simply don’t know what water feels like, so they avoid it altogether.
