9. They talk to you.
Did you know that cats meow exclusively to humans? Cats don't meow to communicate with each other (with the exception of kittens who 'mew' at their mothers). Our cats meow at us for a variety of reasons, but pretty much all based around getting your attention. If you have a cat, chances are you are actually able to distinguish between your cat's meows. How cute is that?

Fun fact: Cats can make over 100 different sounds. Dogs, for comparison, can only make 10.
