Life with cats, although very rewarding, can also be challenging. Let’s not call it a bad challenge. Let’s call it a funny challenge. These “challenges” happen daily. And, as a result, cat owners eventually start forgetting what “normal” really is. They start to think “normal” is whatever their cats have molded “normal” to be. Hats off to the psychological capabilities of cats!
1Trying to hold hands with your cat even though they never really like it.
You just can’t resist their soft paddy paws.
2Regularly stepping on cat litter while trying to go to the loo in the middle of the night.
You swear your cat is actively trying to make the whole house into a litter tray.
3Holding on to your pee for an uncomfortably long time because you couldn’t possibly disturb your cat.
You have been blessed, and you must not disrespect a cat blessing.
4Sharing your human food with your cat, and sometimes having to properly defend your meal from sneaky paws.
“I need the loo. Can you make sure Fluff Face doesn’t eat my dinner?”
5Talking in a weird, high-pitched voice you only ever use for your cat.
Because if you used it on humans you wouldn’t have any friends.
6Never calling your cat the name you actually chose for them.
Just a series of elaborate and adorable nicknames.
7Holding your cat up to the mirror and trying to get them to recognise themselves.
This never works.
8Putting up with being violently attacked on a regular basis.
And convincing yourself that this is a sign of love, or that they definitely did it by mistake.
9Compromising your sleeping position so as to not disturb your cat who sleeps for 18 hours a day anyway.
If you upset your cat it feels like they may decide to never show you any affection ever again.
10Being mildly amused when you and your cat go to the toilet at the same time.
And apologizing to your cat for disturbing their privacy.
11Spending hours of your life standing in open doorways trying to reason with your cat to make a decision.
Cats just love a threshold.
12Loving a very annoying, extremely destructive, snooty ball of fluff more than most humans.
How could you not?
If you’re a cat owner, you’re probably hysterically laughing right now, saying, “omg, soon true..”. Share with friends!
