Top Ten Annoying Things Your Cats Do

I currently own three feisty felines, and I love them lots, but I must confess that I hate some of the things that they do.

The Top Ten Annoying Things Your Cats Do

1 Fight

You can never have a moment of peace because your home is territory constantly being claimed and reclaimed. Just live together in peace and harmony, pussies; the dogs can do it. - PositronWildhawk

My cats-thunder and Paws- always fight! We used to only have one food bowl that Thunder thought was his! They just fought and fought...

2 Wake you up at early hours to make you feed them


As someone who doesn't sleep well, I often hear my cat howling at my parents and shredding the carpet by their door with his claws. If you're that hungry, cat, go out and kill a rat. Just don't bring it in... - PositronWildhawk

This is exactly why I dislike cats. They are so annoying. I would much rather have a dog.

Yap that's true cats are horrible

No, cats are wonderful animals, but they do do annoying things sometimes. - PositronWildhawk

3 Leave dead mice, birds, rats, etc. on your carpet

It's rare that Lilly gets away with actually killing something, (sorry, it's hard to type because my cat is pushing me off the bed) but there have been wild chases with sparrows and mice she's brought in the house. Multiple times I've been sitting at the table, drawing or something. It would be a quiet, peaceful day of fun and relaxation, when suddenly chaos breaks loose. My cat leaps through the cat door positioned on the window, soaring past me, a feathered ball wild, flapping wing sending plumage flying everywhere. The bird manages to break free of Lilly's sharp jaws, but is now fluttering all over the place, screeching in terror, bumping pitifully into walls. I quickly take the cat into the bedroom, run back, and attempt to catch the bird. Sometimes it's a sparrow, sometimes it's a finch, and sometimes, rarely, it's a kind of bird called a Japanese White-eye, which is a small, green bird with mini white patches around its beady little eyes. I race around the room, and eventually ...more - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Not on the carpet but in our ceiling.

When I was a baby, we moved in to our current house. We were checking the place out and according to my mom, we found a USED PAIR OF UNDERWEAR in the ceiling tile in the basement. Apparently the previous homeowners had a cat and it left it there.

I know, right?! It is so gross!

My cat’s getting old, but she still leaves dead animals on the mat outside. Moles, cardinals, mice, and rabbits.

4 Try to steal bacon from your breakfast plate

May not be Bacon, but every morning when I'm getting ready my cat has to stare at me waiting for me to finish my cereal... - delien

Hey, where did my bacon go?

How smart these cats are! - CityGuru

5 Demand more food when the food bowl is full

There's a stray cat in my neighborhood who every single day comes to demand food. We feed him, my neighbor feeds him, everyone feeds him! You wouldn't guess he's a stray cat if you saw how fat he is. There's times I confuse him with a dog! - DogsUnleashed

Mine are always asking for food - WinchesterGirl26

What the cat sees:
Cat: O.O I'm so hungry, I haven't eaten in days! I can barely walk, and my ribs are showing, sickly and weak. I'm starving to death.. This may be my last entry...

Cat: Meow meow meow meow meow
Me: Lilly, there's food right there; it's half way full! - Emberflight_of_StormClan

6 Settle on your chest and dig their claws into your flesh

Sometimes I'm thankful that I'm not a girl, because my cats often narrowly miss my nipples. The rest of the time, they hit them square on. - PositronWildhawk

Are your nipples okay? Aha, yes this seems quite annoying! I love cats! - keycha1n

They're alright now, thank you, madam. How are yours? If you don't mind me asking. - PositronWildhawk

Yep, my cat is doing that while snuggling right now! Oww, my arm! - Emberflight_of_StormClan


7 Play with power leads, earphones, Christmas decorations, etc. as if they were play strings

Think only kittens do this? My cat is eleven years old and still mad for them! - PositronWildhawk
