It’s not too uncommon for us to be with friends or co-workers and someone mention something silly or mischievous their kids have done recently and we respond “Our cats do that too!” So, without further adieu, here is proof that our cats do things that make them just like children.
They spread their toys everywhere and never clean up after themselves.
They would rather play with the boxes their toys come in than the toys themselves.
They love playing with bubbles.
They scratch themselves in public.
They hold your things hostage and demand your attention.
They love watching the same shows over and over.
And they always fall asleep in front of the TV and have to be carried off to bed.
They love playing hide-and-seek.
They’d rather eat from our plates than their own.
They love blanket forts.
They like wearing dad’s shoes.
They’re always fighting.
They’re always putting their elbows on the table.
They climb all over you while you’re on the phone with the credit card company.
They sleep in the weirdest positions.
They insist on sleeping between us. And hog all the covers.
And sometimes all reasonable forms of discipline fail and we do things we know we shouldn’t do. But it’s pretty effective at keeping them out of trouble.
