There are few things more relaxing than settling down on your couch or armchair with a good book or movie and a purring cat. At least, until you need to get up, but hesitate because Fluffy looks so cute and comfortable. Sound familiar?
Have you ever found yourself relegated to the edge of the bed, while your kitty sprawls out in the middle? If so, your furry pal may be in control!
Did you know that kitties may have started meowing specifically to manipulate us? Once past kittenhood, cats don’t meow at other kitties: they communicate among themselves using body language. Fluffy has, however, perfected the exact sound that will pull at our heartstrings. This often results in our furry friends getting a special treat or some cuddle time. Does your furball get snacks, playtime, or attention whenever she asks?
The Dinner Complaint
Kitties are known for being a bit finicky when it comes to dinner. If your furball begs for food, then turns that cute little nose up at your offerings, she might be a bit picky. Have you ever returned your cat’s supper, and replaced it with something more to her liking? If so, Fluffy might be pulling your strings! It is important to note that a loss of appetite can indicate sickness in kitties, so contact your vet if your cat isn’t eating.
Furry Alarm Clock
Our feline friends take breakfast very seriously. Every morning, countless numbers of cat owners are awakened to the gentle smack of kitty paws as their hungry furballs demand breakfast. Do you crawl out of bed just to feed your cat?
If any of these things sound familiar, take heart. Cats can only control people who love them, and whom they love in return!
