Why do writers refer to cats as " she" when writing?

Our question this week was:

I have had 5 cats and all were quite unique. But none have been female. Why do people write articles and make statements like "Ever wonder what's going through your cats head when she smells catnip?"

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email Dave. Interesting question. I have no hard data to know why but I had to guess...cats are often cute, sweet and agile. Many would think these are more female type qualities.

I don't really know for sure.

Does anyone else have a "theory"? Email me and share it with our users!
