YOU KNOW YOU'RE OWNED BY A CAT WHEN.... by ibjennyjenny


You won’t get up to go to the restroom or make dinner because one of them is laying on you.
You’re more than willing to allow several hours to pass and often times skip a meal all together

You and your spouse sleep on the edge of the bed because you don’t want to disturb them…even if they have over half of it

You know exactly what each “meow” means, and they’re not always nice

Your um…cough cough “private time” has to be rearranged to accommodate their sleeping arrangements

You get up to let him out without being asked

You work on your computer standing up because he’s taken over the computer chair

You DON’T work on your computer because he’s laying on the keyboard

Your friends receive e-mails saying “Hi! How are you? Things are glkehtliuglf0”94haklhr67097yQ$^Y[

You keep anything breakable in places where you know the cat won’t be walking (which doesn’t leave many places left for such things)

You put comfortable fleecy throws in his favorite sleeping spots in the winter so he won’t get cold

You take your computer and/or iPhone in for servicing and the technician tells you that “there appears to be cat hair inside”."

You sleep in the guest bedroom because the bed in the master bedroom is too high for your elderly cat to jump up on. (this one made me cry)

    OMG, I just about fell off my chair reading the “ownership” definitions, they are just soooooo true! I think the writer forgot to add one though:

    . . .You know you’re owned by a cat when . . . you get woken out of a sound sleep by a loud purr in your ear in the middle of the nigjht, in the depths of winter! You blindly fall out of bed to let him/her out the door. You know that as soon as you get back into bed, you’ll only have to get up again, so you wait, in the freezing cold, for that demanding meow on the outside to be let in again!

    Mikey is a beautiful catand you’ve captured him so well – love the light and shadow. Thank you so much for posting this, it’s made my day!

  • Well thank you very much, I am so glad this post has made you smile, that makes me smile.
