If cats were people, and they pulled half the crap they do, no one would speak to them again. That's not even a joke.
Picture your cat as your BFF. Would you still be friends with someone who throws up on your carpet and ignores you unless they need something? I don't think so.
But for some reason, we let cats get away with everything because they're just too damn cute.
Cats know it, too. They know we won't really do anything to them because somehow they have cast a spell on us with their kitty magic. They just decide to be jerks. Loveable jerks. But jerks, all the same.
Here's some of the most annoying things cats do juuuuuuuuust to test our patience.
1. Screeching like a banshee in the middle of the night.
It starts small. A tiny meow to see if you're ACTUALLY asleep. When they hear no response, they enlist the power of their entire lung capacity to get your attention. No, no. It's fine. I don't actually NEED sleep. You just keep meowing. I love it. REALLY I DO.
2. Purposely knock things off the table (that they aren't even supposed to be on)
Firstly, get off the table. Second, that was an antique vase that costs thousands of dollars. You better believe that's coming out of your treats allowance.
3. Scratch up the furniture that happens to be next to their scratching post.
It's like buying a toy for a kid on Christmas and having them only play with box. Or telling someone "don't push this button" so it makes it way more appealing. You try to stop them at first, but at some point it's just not worth the stress.
