You know your cat owns you when.............

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
You walk around looking at the floor because you don't want to trip over a sleeping cat.

You always open your front door slowly because you don't want to bump your cat's head.

You are constantly picking up little bits of string, paper, and other stuff.

Cat hair has become part of your wardrobe (and diet).

You consider it normal to wake up with a tail (or whisker) in your face.

The first item on your christmas list is catnip mice (or similar).


....Just a few ideas, anyone got anymore?

Here's a few more

You know your cat owns you when. . .

You are sitting at the computer and if your significant other calls you you say "I'm busy" but if the cat meows, you get up to see what kitty wants!

You feel guilty going away for the weekend because the kitties will be lonely.

You step over the bathmat (where the cat is laying) and dry yourself off on the cold tile so you don't dribble water on the cat's head.

You get p***ed if you have to buy clothes full retail, but you will spend $50+ on the cat without blinking. (Yes, I just bought them an $80 cat dome)

You decorate your living room to match the color of the cat condo.....

You adjust the way you are sleeping so that you don't rollover on or accidentally kick your cat.

Your schedule revolves around their desired feeding times, play times, etc.

You are more careful about what you buy them food or toy wise then you are concerned with what YOU are eating or what kind of toys YOU play with.


I'm sure I could think of more...those are just a few

You only buy certain colors of clothes that disguise cat hair well.

You save the milk carton tabs off the lids for your cat to play with.

I know I have more but I can't think, and some are similar to the others.

You get used to sleeping at the very edge of the bed.

You lose all circulation in your legs because the cat was on your lap.
You don't move the cat, you get used to the tingly feeling instead.

You tell cat stories to your friends and family.

When your cat does something cute, or you get a great picture, your first thought is, I can't wait to post that on TCS!

When all the cats have taken over your bed, & you end up taking out a sleeping bag & sleeping on the floor.

When you go on vacation, you call home to check on how the cats are doing first thing every morn & before turning in at night.

When your cat wakes you up with his face in yours, before the alarm goes off, so he can be fed; especially on your weekend days.

When you are typing away at the computer, & 1 of your cats comes up to you, meows up a storm & stares at you, so you stop what you are doing to follow him.

When you pull out a couple top desk drawers, on both the left & right sides of where you are sitting, place a thick pillow on them, so your cat can sleep there.


As I was reading everyone's posts of how their cat(s) own them. I was laughing up a storm! Thanks so much!! All 5 boys were in here sleeping just a few minutes ago. Oh my, I just heard something fall on the 1st floor. I have to go see what they did.

I thought we were the only ones to do this! I can't imagine how many are under the kitchen stove!

Oh yes, we can't open up a new milk carton without getting yelled at for the tab!

You plan extra time in the morning to give kitties their morning loves before going to work.

Along the same lines, you think "But kitty needed extra attention this morning" is a valid excuse for being late to work.

You have one picture of your S/O or spouse on your desk, but about 10 of each kitty.

Chixyb - Don't give up on Princess; please don't think negative, always think positive!! She is in our prayers every night to return to you!

When our Charlie took off, we started to think he would never be back. Even with us posting flyers everywhere, putting ads in 3 local papers, following all the leads we got via phone. But Charlie was always in my prayers & other people were praying for his return as well. It took Charlie 3 months, but he finally returned! So, just to let you know, that Princess is in this families' prayers every night. And I believe that every animal has an angel; so her angel is with her too!

Thank you very much cat spirit, I am still hoping, but we had a storm today and I figured she would be back. Although the food for Mia in the garage has been being eaten, and Mia doesn't eat a lot, so eaither princess has been coming back to eat, or we have a new kitty.

You know your cat owns you when you actuallly let her/him have a lick of your ice cream!

Your eating, your cat cries and headbutts you because it wants a couple of it's favourite treats 'NOW', and you stop everything to give it what it wants!!

Here's mine:

You know your cat owns you when.....


You have cat treats stashed all over the house.

You buy things that come in boxes, just so your cat has something to play in.



(I like the bathmat one, its so true!!!)

You learn to type around the cat.

Those aren't typos, they're your cat expressing him/herself.

Your grocery shopping list is as follows:

- Indoor dry cat food
- Feral cat food
- Wet food
- Litter
- Cat brush & toys
- Bread
- Something for dinner
- Diet Coke

OK, so why do I bother with a list when it's the same each week?? Oh yeah, the cat brush only happens once in a while. LOL

...you're gone for more than six hours and you call home to "talk" to the cats through the answering machine.

...you start thinking about aquariums so your cats have "TV".

TOO TRUE!

...and BTW - the milk rings (ours are the rings from gallon water bottles) are most of our cats favorite toy!
post #23 of 28
...You stay up allmost all night, just because your kitty had decited to enjoy the fresh night air OUTSIDE. It is not possible to go to sleep untill the kitties have sluggled up safely and gone to the adventures of dreams.

I´m sure I´ll think of more...

I love this thread! Those things are so true!

.....when you find if normal to throw crunchy candy wrappings on the living room floor, because the kitties like to play with it!

You sure have that thought down pat!!!! I seem to spend more on litter, food and vet bills than I do on myself. Although I have to admit I don't need videos or movies, since the in-house entertainment is different every day, and I never know just what to expect. They now are playing soccer with Sonic wrapped candies, and coke bottle lids, and are chewing the foam off my model layout to pieces. Someday I'll actually get it all vacuumed up at one time!!

Just thought of this one as I was doing it tonight.

You tie the shoelaces of your shoes after taking them off so your kitty doesn't chew them off overnight.

friends/relatives ask you what you want for your birthday, you tell them your cats need a new cat tree/toy/treats/whatever new products for cats are in the market.
