“My cats murdered my plant and danced on its grave” – a usual phrase of a cat owner who tells his colleagues at work about his cat. Nobody warned him that cats can do such unbelievable and unspeakable things.. and at the same time look like a usual fur ball. Let’s go through little details you probably don’t know about living with cats.
1. Nobody tells you about the secret second life your cat will lead when you’re not around.
2. Nobody tells you how easily startled they are.
3. Nobody tells you how much joy it gives them to knock your shit onto the floor.
4. Nobody tells you that once you get a cat, you’ll probably never be able to own a plant again because they’ll find a way to completely destroy it.
5. Nobody tells you that the second a bug enters your home, your cat will find it. Immediately. And possibly eat it.
6. Nobody tells you how wild they get at the most unexpected times.
7. Nobody tells you how much they enjoy lying across keyboards and notebooks, especially when you’re using them.
8. Nobody tells you how cuddly they actually are, despite their antisocial reputations.
9. Nobody tells you how delightfully weird they are — this is one I can’t explain. You’ll know it when you see it.
10. Nobody tells you how good they are at hiding, and how many times you’ll crap your pants frantically trying to find them.
11. Nobody tells you about the funny way they rotate their ears and point them backward like fuzzy little satellite dishes.
12. Sure, maybe someone told you cats love boxes, but you can’t even begin to fathom just how much until you witness it yourself.
13. Nobody tells you how many worst-case scenarios you’re capable of thinking up that involve your cat escaping or getting injured when you’re not home.
