If you have cats, you probably know very well by now that kitties can and will play with just about anything! This is certainly true with my own kitties, as they play with a numerous amount of mundane household objects like they’re actual cat toys. These items include socks, bags, boxes, strings, and pom pom balls, all of which my cats absolutely love.
If a person in your life is having a negative affect on you, as in they consistently leave you feeling down, stressed, anxious, etc., then it may be necessary to spend less time with them or completely cut off contact with them. Please don't feel guilty for doing this. You have to consider your own health and well-being, too. You have to do what you can to protect yourself from negative and toxic influences.
