How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You

oatmeal cat plotting to kill you
Is your cat showing you love or secretly plotting your demise? Our friends at The Oatmeal have the answer.

Think your cat loves you? Is she always laying on top of you, kneading you with care and affection, or bringing you gifts of dead animals? Obviously, those are all signs of everlasting devotion, right?

Ha! No. As our funny friends at The Oatmeal cleverly point out in their newest viral comic, How to Tell if Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You (click here to view), these are all indicators that your cat is, you know, plotting to kill you. Other warning signs include excess shoveling of kitty litter (which is really just practice for burying bodies, like yours), and sleeping on your electronics (in order to keep you from communicating with the outside world with your superior technology, of course).

Okay, we admit, this isn't the best news we've heard all day, but you know what is good news? This is just a teaser to an entire book on the subject of ways your cat is trying to murder you, which is currently available for pre-order. And if a little list of nine ways made us laugh this much, imagine what a 136-page book will do!
