Five Things That Prove Cats Are Total Brats
1. Knocking Things Off Counters/Tables
I can't tell you how many times I've been relaxing and had to jump up to see what a loud noise was just to find out my cat had for no reason at all knocked whatever it may have been off the counter, If she can push it with her paw and make it fall she will. Although it may seem cats do this just to get on our nerves the actual reason isn't quite as much of a slap in the face, it's actually a way for your cat to express their predatory instincts as well as a way for them to get your attention.
2. Laying down In Front Of The TV
I have two different little beds set up for my cat and there are countless other comfy spots for her to lay down and chill out but where does she choose to lay down most of the time? Right smack dab in the middle of the TV stand and then she gives me a look like she's saying "I'm nicer to look at then that big screen". I couldn't find anything online explaining why cats do this and honestly don't know if maybe it's just my cat that does this but I do know that it drives me crazy.
3. Climbing Screen Doors
One of the first things I do every Spring when the nice weather returns is put in my screen doors so I can get some fresh Spring air into my house but my cat has somehow turned that into a constant battle to keep her from climbing it and tearing holes in it with her claws, I used to think she was just chasing bugs she saw but soon realized there were no bugs for her to chase, it turns out cats do this because screens help them sharpen their claws pretty well compared to most other things and hey they get a nice view of outside while they do t.
4. Laying Down In Front Of You While You Walk
There's nothing quite as annoying as trying to walk around your house and get things done and constantly having to either step around or over your cat because they keep deciding laying right in your way is the best place to be, sometimes my cat does it right at the top of my stairs, swear she's trying to take me out but in truth it is just her being playful and wanting attention, although a female cat in heat will behave in this way as a form of foreplay.
5. Lick Your Hand When You Try To Pet Them
I love to pet my cat, she's pretty much the softest thing in my house but almost all of the time if I do go to pet her she turns and starts licking my hand, It's not the worst thing in the world but when you just feel like petting your cat and end up with a wet hand, I couldn't find any concrete reason why cats do this but my best guess is they smell oils on our hands that they do not want on their fur, cats are picky clean animals and just don't want our dirty mitts on them is all.
