People who think cats are just like any other pets have got life all wrong. In fact, if you’re under the impression that you own your cat, you have no clue what you’re talking about. Your cat owns you. It owns every second of your life from the minute you decide to adopt or buy one.
When you bring home a cat, you’re ushering a monarch into their kingdom, where you do everything you can to keep them happy. And they do everything they can to make sure you keep them satisfied as long as they exist.
For those of you who think that you’ve just read an utter load of bovine droppings, here’s what having a cat actually feels like.
- You’ll Never Find Them Where They’re Supposed To Be
Cats have a knack for making themselves comfortable in spots where they fit as snugly as possible. No matter how many times you try to get your cat to utilise that expensive, colourful, padded cat bed which the pet store lady convinced you to buy, this is where you’ll probably find your cat-
- They Will Take Over Your Computer
No, we’re not talking about the internet’s obsession with cat pictures. We’re talking about your cat literally taking over your computer. Cats love anything that’s warm and can be occupied. Which includes your extremely comfortable laptop keyboard. It doesn’t matter if you need to pay your bills or finish off work. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of a high-intensity MMO deathmatch and your team needs you. A cat’s gotta do what a cat’s gotta do. Which is to sit on your system.
- Cats Don’t Believe In Privacy
There’s not a single cat in this world that understands what privacy means. If they feel like it, they will follow you everywhere.
And they stare.
Chopping vegetables? ‘I watching you closely.’ Taking a leak? ‘Hey, whatcha doin?’ Bad case of diarrhoea? ‘I like the faces you make when you do that.’ Eating some ice cream? ‘Well, hello there, glutton.’
- They Don’t Care About Your Things
Cats display utter disregard for anything that you own. They will scratch the life out of your sofa sets. They will find a precariously perched glass, and knock it down. If you let them strut into your bathroom, be prepared to deal with aggressive meowing and the sounds of bottles toppling over as they mutilate the toilet paper roll. If they see you keeping something you care about, they must pee all over it. Yes, they must.
- You’re Nothing But Furniture To Climb On
Don’t be fooled into thinking that your cat is only trying to climb onto you because it actually likes you. Cats don’t care. They climb whatever they can climb. To your cat, you’re probably no different than the chairs in your living room. It doesn’t matter to them what you’re doing. If a cat wants to climb you, it will climb you. And they will stay there as long as they feel like.
- Catnip Drives Them Crazy
If you thought keeping your children off drugs was hard, wait till you have to deal with regulating your cat’s catnip supply. This otherwise harmless looking herb is the bane of every cat owner’s existence. For some odd reason, cats have no control over themselves in the presence of catnip. They literally eat their way to catnip oblivion. In fact, their mouths start to froth, and they even roll around like delusional lunatics when they’ve had too much. Don’t believe us? Take a look at this.
Whatever said and done, there’s nothing quite as endearing as having an intrusive, egotistical junkie as a pet. Looking for things to keep your cat happy? You can get everything your cat needs at Quikr. And if you don’t own one yet, you can find your very own furball there too.
