Cat genetics

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I have a conclusion that embedded within the gene pool of cats are the following:

1. At least one or more cats that live in the house will come running and than lounge upon the bed that you're trying to make.

2. At least one or cats will come running to attack the fresh laundry that is in the basket or laying on the bed so that cat hair will adhere to ALL freshely washed laundry.

3. Any open box or container must be investigated as to size to find out if it will hold and hide the respective cat.

4. Any and all cats will meow on one side of a closed door to find out what's on the other side.

5. ANy and all cats will drink their fill from one sink faucet and than check the other bathroom faucet to see if the water tastes different/better.

6. The volume of a cats meow is INVERSELY perportionate to the volume of the purr. LOUD purr... almost silent meow

7. Within 30 seconds of eating, a cat will become famished beyond belief and ask for more food if they have recently bathed themselves.

8. Any observed human sitting on a toilet should have a cat upon their lap.

9. The keyboard of any laptop computer is just the best place to lounge since it has heat from within.

Feel free to add to the list.

Any cupboard that is opened (especially a low down one with lots of pots/pans/crockery/other items inside) is to be immediately explored and then any cat will settle for a nap as far away from you in the corner of the cupboard as possible.

Any newly scooped litter box is immediately used by one or more cats.

An open book/paper work in front of any human is a clear invitation to come lie upon it!

Anytime a canopener is used cats will assume its food for them.

A open refrigerator means treats are coming.

Just because it's raining on the north side of the house doesn't mean it's raining on the south side, and humans must check out the situation under feline supervision.

The first sounding of the alarm clock in the morning means that you must jump upon your human's chest and force them to lay there thru at least a few snoozes.

So true

All food in house belongs to cats and humans must ask to consume

We had THREE helper kitties making our bed this last time and than we developed a moving lump under the sheets... with two helper kitties jumping on the moving lump (Tigger)

It was quite entertaining to watch them all go into flaky mode (letting their kittens out to play)

The people cats own must immediately give 100% of their attention to their kitties upon returning home. This takes priority over going to the bathroom, putting cold foods away in the fridge, or saying hello to your significant other.

All cats will be born with the unnate knowledge of whatever activity is most annoying to their particular human family in order to obtain the fastest response and attention.

Oh man, ain't that the truth. Even if they went five minutes before you scooped it!

The one about the laundry basket applies to all of mine, with the amendment that someone will manage to pee in it if it isn't put away in a timely manner. Also that Dink will get into a cupboard but be unable to get back out on his own, so will scream at the top of his lungs and bang on the door.

And if I may add to the list: The cat always has dibs on the highest point in any given room, regardless of what else is already stored up there.

Never, ever, try to be the first one down the stairs at your house. The cat WILL win, even if it means he has to trip you in doing so.


For multi-cat households: If one cat poops, the others have to as well. It's called "the poop contest" and they try to see who can poop the biggest, longest & the mostest. When you get home at the end of the day: You're the Judge! (unless my cats are the only ones who do this?)
