Cats have many different meanings.  In the United States, cats are simply good pets, but in Ancient Egypt cats were seen as gods and even mummified.  Japanese people have thought cats were good luck for thousands of years, and invented the Maneki Neko*  which sits on window ledges and store windows to bring good fortune. Since it takes responsibility to care for a cat, in India korats** are given to newly married couples. Whereas in Korea you can find cats roasting on the barbeque.   Ultimately, if you want to get a good friend get a cat.  With a good diet and plenty of exercise, they will be with you for a long time.

  1. Yes, cats are fun. You should do a blog post sometime about why some people are allergic to cats too, and if there is any way to fix that.
