Things non-"cat people" dont get - Page 2

post #31 of 55
Non-cat people don't get it when you call home to talk to your cats through the answering machine!

Non-cat people don't understand why I spend so much time in the food isle, picking out different flavors of food for my cat. With anything new I always ask myself "Will they like it?"

Non-cat people don't understand that cats are priviledges not a right. If your kitty wanted out and away from you. I assure you they would figure it out.

Most importantly, Non-cat people don't get that pure joy a feline friend can bring you when you day is blue. When cats pay attention to you it's because you truly are the most important person to them at that time. lol. And that alone can make anyone feel special.

Cat farts are almost a better gift then something dead at the foot of the bed! At least it goes away on it's own, you don't have to touch it, and trust me, the cat wants to get it out of there just as bad as you do!

Non-cat people don't understand that our cats have to help us read the newspaper every day. When I have the paper spread out on the table in the morning Fluffy or Kolohe come over and plant themselves on the exact page I'm attempting to read. And non-cat people don't understand how sweet and loving a kitty can be. They think all cats are always aloof and unaffectionate. They just don't understand the wonderful, multi-faceted personality of a cat.

But I have to ask: when you are both catlapped and both want something at the same time, do you argue about who is more catlapped? E.g. You have 2 cats but they are both sluts and will return if you get up and I have the skittish one that so rarely settles in so I win? In the rare event that we share these stories with our non-cat friends, they give us that "you're weird" look.

And btw.....I love the term catlapped! Will need to start using it here.

Non cat people just don't understand the joy of the head butt. I mean really what other animal head butts as a sign of love?

Non cat people don't understand the need to de-fur ones feet before putting on socks and shoes.

Non cat people don't understand the joy of getting ones head kneaded at 3am. Hey, she is just combing my hair so I don't have the dreaded bed head.

Non cat people don't enjoy half hour of laughter everyday when the laser pointer is set loose.

Non cat people don't have the pleasure of having their cat watch TV with them. I mean yeah he is sitting right in front of it but he is also pointing out the interesting things on the screen with his paws. I mean if that is not specialized service then I don't know what is.

Getting invited to a cat person's house as a friend, date, acquaintance or whatever and right off saying something like "I hate cats"...is NOT a good way to get into a cat person's good graces.
Or going out on a date with a cat person and being a noncat person and saying I hate cats is a sure way out the door and a ticket to singlesville.

Things non-cat people don't understand is the high honor of waking up and having a bed covered in feather toys, furry mice, and crinkle balls.

Giving up a cup on your bedside table as an extra water dish.

Non cat people don't understand that the cat would rather drink water from your glass than his bowl. They also don't understand that when he does it, we think it's cute and say 'quick, he's doing it again - go get the camera'

They don't understand that the most comfortable chair is not our chair, if we sit there we are simply warming it up for the cat.

Non-cat people will come to your house at christmas and think you have ten kids because you have stockings up for all the cats too.......they don't understand this

My neighbors don't understand that when my husband and I come home from a day out one of us must assume the catchers position, and the other unlock the door. The gray kitty who's rent we pay likes to dash out into the hall way and climb the carpeted walls.

I can see him doing this too!

On the same note, a non-cat person would immediately try to get a cat down that was climbing the curtains, instead of grabbing the camera and laughing at the look on his face......

No, we just suffer until one cat or the other decides to have a snack or bathroom break.

My mother is not a cat person and one time, she ended up with Carly on her lap. Carly give the best head butts. She will just lean into you and hold it. My mother had the weirdest look on her face when Carly gave her a head butt. I had to assure her that it was a sign of affection.

This is a great thread!

Non-cat people don't get that every chirp, purr, growl, gesture and facial expression means something different

They also don't get that our cats "take care" of us when we're sick or sad.

They also don't get it that these furry things are just another member of the family.

That is so true and that they are like your children.

That you couldn't possibly do a crossword puzzle without kitty laying on the paper so you have to move little body parts to read the clues.

It keeps you from looking to the back of the book for the answers so its more challenging.

Non-cat people also do not get the difference between "aloof" and "discerning" -- the former being their assessment of cats, the latter being the reality.
