Don't worry, we still love them anyway.

1. When they shadow you from room to room 24-7-365.

So clingy.

2. When you step away from your desk for a short break only to come back and find this. #theperilsofworkingfromhome

You know the drill: If they fits, they sitsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss;lakdjf;lakd;qoie uponcqknf;qoiweprujd;lkvnaspeoir.


3. When they offer to share their catch of the day.

(But, hey, it's the thought that counts tho, right?)

4. Or partake in yours (press play to watch & turn the volume up).

His little meow at the end is pure sass. #norespectforpersonalspace


5. When they decide to hunt moths in the middle of the night ....

.... and then silently judge/scold you from their new favorite perch.

Reminder: Cats are basically just furry little house monkeys.

6. When you find them napping on freshly laundered towels less than 5 minutes after folding them.

Every. Single. Time.


7. When they knock your glasses off because they want attention and they want it MEOW.

Over & over & over again.

The third time was endearing, but the fourth? RUDE.


8. When they turn the bathroom, aka their human's litter box, into a disaster zone.

It's a toilet paper cat-astrophe (sorry, not sorry).

9. When your glass of water becomes their glass of water (press play to watch).

You have a bowl with your name on it for a reason, bud.


10. When you sit down to binge your favorite new show only to find out someone's already watching theirs.

Paws meeting pause.

11. When they decide to test gravity on all the things.

It's an important job, tbh.


12. When you buy them an expensive bed or cat tree but they'd rather sleep in the box it arrived in.

Trolling level: Expert

13. When your attempts to make the bed in the morning end in utter, utter failure.

For the record, this tic isn't entirely unique to cats.


14. When they can't decide whether they want to be in or out.

You are officially on notice because I won't hold it open forever, ya dig?

15. When you find them literally chilling in no-fly zones like the refrigerator.

Effs officially given: 0.


16. When they "snack" on things that aren't food, like, say, oh, plastic. 🤦

It's a condition others have observed and struggled with as well.

17. When they turn in place for any duration longer than 30 seconds trying to get comfy.

You might like to make biscuits, pal, but this isn't a bakery. #getonwithitalready
