There’s a reason
cat owners are sometimes referred to as “staff.” Cats have a way of burrowing in and taking over not only your heart, but your home too. Take a look at your house for these telltale signs that a cat is running the show.
A sure indicator of a home where cats rule the roost is litterboxes in unexpected places. Corner of the dining room? Sure. Smack dab in the middle of the home office? No problem. In the master bathtub? Easy-peasy — just lift the litterbox out when you need to use the tub or shower. Such an arrangement may seem ridiculous to people whose abodes are not run by cats, but cat owners know: Move the box and prepare for a piddle puddle somewhere you don’t want it. It's better to have the box where the cat likes it.
Once your cat finds a spot he likes, it’s hard to deny him the pleasure of returning there. Often, that spot is a pillow that sits on the couch where the afternoon sunlight hits it just right. You know better than to move the pillow, which typically sports a meatloaf-shaped indentation from your cat’s body and a growing amount of cat fur. Incidentally, such pillows are no longer used by humans.
Have a work deadline or an important email to send? That’s all fine until your cat decides the warm computer keyboard is just what he needs at the moment. Cat-ruled humans know that removing the cat from the keyboard sounds much easier than it is. Your cat will keep returning to claim his spot — or force you to abandon your computer.
