That's not chicken soup, it's actually cat food!

15. Letting your cat's exercise equipment take over your living room.

16. Having any wall space that won't be immediately colonized by your cat.

Cats, the new books!

17. Endless hours spent building entertaining, yet completely unnecessary, furniture for your cat.

OBVIOUSLY your cat totally gets the reference.

18. Sacrificing your sanity when you create an elaborate costume for your cat.

Guaranteed, they do not like 'em as much as you do.

19. ... And again when you make them an Instagram account.
