Everyone should know when your cat is asleep in the sink, because it's adorable.

They must not be disturbed.

4. Feeding your cat some human food just because they look so cute eating it.

5. Talking to your cat and almost forgetting that they can't actually understand what you're saying.

And when they meow in the right place, you ~know~ that they're listening really.

6. And using a funny voice specially reserved for them.

Talking to humans: "Hello."

Talking to your cat: "Hellloooooooooooo000ooooo you little poof of joy."

7. Taking a picture of your cat whenever it does something slightly out of the ordinary.

Or just looks particularly cute, or there's good lighting, or you're just bored.

8. Mainly calling your cat by a name that is not actually their proper name.

What you call your cat: Charlie Poo Poo, Mr Floof, Friendly Cloud

"This is the last time I open this door, Floofkins, this is your final decision." Five minutes later you know you'll let them back out again.

16. Convincing yourself a bite is a sign they love you.

They're not doing it as hard as they possibly could, so that's an act of kindness.
