Bonus points for waking you up.

9. Sometimes they make sure their hair is JUST RIGHT before they say anything.

Lookin’ good, kitty.

10. Sometimes they strategically position themselves in between you and chores.

Laundry is definitely second to CUDDLING.

How about “purrs with friends”?

13. Sometimes they just go with the tried and true “if-you-hate-it-then-you-probably-should-just-sit-on-it”

All the single kitties.

14. “Oh I’m sorry, were you reading and not scratching my head?”

15. “Mmmm yes, important email messages can wait for this epic back scratch you’re about to deliver.”
