Being a cat-owner is not simply about having a cute little kitty running around the house. Oh, if only it were that simple. No, when we first bring home that ball of fluff, we know that our lives are about to change forever. Now, we are an obedient servants; ready to do whatever our kitty wants. For some reason, cats change our lives in a way that we just don't like to admit to ourselves. Why? Well, because they're so damn adorable, of course.
It's warm and cozy here in the cat club, but just remember that all your black clothing with be covered in cat hair. Only those in the inner circle know what #CatLife is really like. Here are some tweets that are just too relatable if you have cats in your life.
15 When they see some birds outside!
It doesn't matter what your cat is doing. They could be eating, chilling out on the sofa, or using their litter tray. Everything else goes out of the window when they hear that all-important sound. Suddenly, their ears prick up and they start to get very intense. Their eyes widen and you can see that something has come over them. They can just sense that their prey is nearby and there's no way that they are going to let it get away. Why on earth should they?
They run to the window and spend the next ten minutes staring out at the birds. Sure, they can't actually catch them, but that's not the point. The point is that they have to let the little critters know just who is the boss.
14 When it's quite clearly dinner time
If there's one thing that cats don't like it's having to wait for something. These creatures are seriously impatient. They don't care that you're busy or that you're on deadline. They don't care that you are in a rush and need to leave. No, none of that matters at all to cats. They are far too important to give a damn about what's going on in your life. Instead, all they seem to care about is the fact that they get fed... and they get fed now!
If you're not ready to whip out the food the very moment they want it, you're going to have a serious problem. That look that they give you says it all. These guys are not messing around with you. If you don't deliver the goods as soon as possible, you may well have a cat fight on your hands. And that's the last thing you want!
13 When your kitty has no time for your nonsense
Say what you want about cats but there's one thing that they are genuinely very good at. These creatures are so skilled at throwing shade and they are not afraid to use it. When they thinks something is dumb or just plain annoying, they will let you know about it. The look on their faces is like nothing you will have ever seen before. They must have worked on that look from the time they were kittens. Over the years, they've managed to perfect it and do it right every single time.
We have all irritated our kitties from time to time. Whether you've accidentally woken them up or just got in their way, you will live to regret it.
12 That time you brought a box home
If you want to give your cat a real treat, you don't have to spend an actual fortune on kitty toys. Oh no, felines are simple creatures with simple desires. All you have to do is head to your local grocery store and ask for one little thing; a box. You should find that most stores are more than a little eager to get rid of their boxes, and so you should be able to pick one up for free. It might seem a little odd asking, but you have to do it!
Once you bring that 'toy' back home, you'll see the look on your cat's face. Honestly, nothing could make them happier than this little treat. They will be so excited to play that you won't need to entertain them for hours.
11 When your cat just wants ALL the attention
It doesn't matter how busy you may be, when your cat wants your attention, they will be more than happy to let you know about it. That's the brilliant thing about these pets; they just don't give a damn what you think of them. They are not afraid to be needy or beg for your attention. If anything, they will do all they can to make sure that they get just what they need from you. I mean, why shouldn't they? They are the most important thing in the world, after all.
When your kitty starts to give you this very look, you know it's game over. There's not a person on this planet who could say no to that little face. I mean, could you walk away from those cute little eyes? I think not.
10 When you're certain that they are up to no good
Eek. Whenever you see cats sitting and staring out of the window, you know that something is amiss. Sometimes, when cats get together, they can play some serious tricks on you. Unlike other unmentionable animals, felines are actually incredibly smart. They know how to manipulate situations and get just what they want. It's just their nature! They have no problem twisting people them around their little finger. In fact, you might go as far as to say that that is just what they do best.
If it looks as though your kitty is plotting something, you ought to be very very scared. These animals have zero mercy, which means that they will have no problem taking you down in one hit. You should probably run away now. I mean, who knows what these guys are up to?!
9 That time you forgot to feed your cat at 9am sharp
Cats are animals of routine and if you screw that up, they seem to get seriously mad about it. I mean, who can really blame them? As far as they are concerned, they are the most important things ever. If you don't give them what they want right away, you are most certainly the one in the wrong. After all, there's no way you should be neglecting them in this way the entire time. You need to be sensitive to their needs as much as you can. It's the least you can do really.
When you miss that feeding time by even a split second, you're certain to get the worst reaction ever. They will pester and plague you for ages and ages. They don't care that they are being annoying AF. If anything, they're proud!
8 Every single time your cat starts to get curious
Curiosity killed the cat, right? Wrong! Most kitties are totally curious all the time and don't seem to give a damn about the consequences. I mean, nothing particularly bad ever seems to happen to kitties. They are just so cute that they seem to get away with anything they try to pull. No one can be mad at them and they know it. In fact, it's something that they very much use to their advantage whenever they get the chance to do so.
If your kitty starts to get this curious, mysterious look in their eye, you know that they are about to start some trouble. They just cannot help it. It's the way that they are and they love it more than anything else. We've all seen our cats act like this and there's nothing we can do about it.
7 When your cat wants to destroy everything
If you like your things, having a cat around your home is a seriously bad idea. These animals want to ruin everything in their path and they will do so every damn time that they get the chance. Whether it's your favorite dress or, indeed, your sofa, your kitty will do all that they can to make sure that they destroy it. They won't even wait until you're out of the room to go at it. They don't care if you see just what they are doing. Oh no, they don't care what you think at all. They know that they are in charge and you are not!
That means that they will look you right in the eye before they go ahead and ruin everything you own. We've all been there with this kind of thing!
6 When you try to do anything that doesn't concern them
As independent as cats like to pretend they are, we all know the truth. They might act like they don't need us at all, but that's so not the case. Just you watch what happens when you start doing something that doesn't involve them at all. Watch their reaction. Cats need your attention and the moment that they lose it, they will freak out and start being brats. Whether they start meowing or come right over and bother you, they won't let you relax.
Whenever I sit down for dinner, for example, my cat will start meowing. It's the only time in the day that he does it and he's just so loud. So, of course, being a great cat mom, I have to get up and comfort him as soon as possible. It's the only way.
5 When they just don't get 'personal space'
If you want some space away from your kitty, forget about it. There's no way on this planet that your cat is about to leave you alone. Most of the time, you just can't get them to cuddle you. It just won't happen. But, of course, the very second that you need a little space away from them, they will want to be around you. They have no problem following you to your room and crawling all over you. If anything, this is something that they take great pleasure in doing. It's one of their favorite ways to pass the time!
Of course, few people out there have the heart to actually move them when they need to. It seems so very wrong to get rid of them when they are cozy. So, you just have to sit there and wait.
4 When you're trying to sleep and this happens
You know those lazy Sunday mornings? The ones when you just want to relax as much as possible? Yeah, well you can forget about enjoying those anymore. Those days are well and truly over. You see, your cat is not about you lying around at all. They don't care how long your working week has been. They don't give a damn that you're tired and feel as though you need a rest. Nope, none of that is important to them.
They will crawl right up on you and so everything they can to wake you up no matter what. Some might find this really annoying, but the fact of the matter is that it's very sweet. This is how I like to look at it: Your cat loves you so very much that they want you to be with them always.
3 When your kitty is the laziest thing in the world
Personally, I would love to have the life of a cat. All these creatures seem to do is lie around all the time and live the best life ever. If all I had to do all day, every day was lie on the sofa and chill out, I think I'd be the happiest person in the world. After all, what could be better than just lazing around and enjoying the nice warm weather? For most of us, we only do that on vacation. Luckily for cats, their whole lives are vacations. It's so not fair.
When you see your kitty lying around all day, it may make you a little jealous. But then, you look at how very adorable they are, and you just can't be mad at them. These little things deserve some peace!
2 And when they just can't get comfortable
If you have ever witnessed this hilarious thing, you are a very lucky person. Without even noticing it, cats are often the masters of comedy. They might not mean to be as funny as they are, but it just comes ever-so-naturally to them, and so they go with it. When you see them trying to cozy up and get comfortable, it's the funniest thing ever. They just an't decide how they want to relax which makes them look so very cute at the best of times.
You can watch them wriggle around and flip about for hours. It seems that they are totally unaware of how sweet they are being. At the end of the day, all they want is to find a comfortable position where they can rest for a while. It's not too much to ask, right?
1 When all they want is a cuddle!
It might sound a little cheesy, but this is perhaps the very best thing about having a cat. When you have a cute little kitty, you will never be at a loss for cuddles ever again. These things love getting all snuggly and enjoying some quality time with you now and then. Of course, the one major drawback to that is the fact that it 100% has to be on their terms. There are no two ways about it. You only get a hug when they want one.
Still, when your cat is in the mood for some affection, there's nothing better in the world. Snuggling up with your pet is the best way to chill out. I mean, what's better than being all cozy with the one thing that you love the most in the world, eh?
