Every cat has a "jogging" hour and a "knocking off" hour.

1. The cutest thing a cat can do is when they cover their face with their paw.

It's when they're sleepy but it's too bright for their lil' eyesies.


5. Every cat has a "knocking off" hour where they will push things off surfaces deliberately to get your attention.

Sometimes they even look you in the eye while they're doing it.

7. As soon as you need a wee, your cat will sense this and immediately sit on you.

And you cannot move because then your cat might never sit on you ever again.


10. Your cat will always sit on the pile of stuff on the bed instead of the vast empty space on the bed.

Cat owners would never leave a pile of clean washing on their bed unless being covered in cat hair was suddenly the hot new trend.

11. Even though cats are small, they are capable of taking up as much bed space as an adult human.

It's a talent.

12. Even if your cat doesn't actually want to eat what you're eating, they still want to sniff it, and maybe give it a little lick.

"But you don't like salad" is something you've definitely said to your cat.


13. Cats aren't generally political, but they are all staunchly opposed to any closed door.

In a cat's utopia every door would be open, you could go out or in or sit on the threshold as much as you like, and no one would pee alone.

14. It is impossible to call a cat by the name you originally gave them. Over time their true name will come to you.

sometimes I call my cat a dog just to annoy her

Usually it's either Mrs Cuddlefloof or Crapbag.

15. But if your cat is ever naughty they just get referred to as "The Cat".

The equivalent of your mum calling you by your full name.

16. Cats will happily sleep for 23 hours of the day, but they will be 100% awake in the hour before your alarm is meant to go off.

All cats are morning people.
