Things I Have Learned....About Cats

I've had my kitties now for just over a year, and being a dog person, there were some surprising things I've found out about my babies with fur. Here are some of them:

Cats are quicker than the average two year-old. Ever try to catch one when he was doing something naughty? They are like lightning incarnate.

Don't ever do that noisy sniffing thing that dogs do near their ears- you get a look of utter disgust and possibly a swat.

Cats can land on as small of a space as one inch.

(Some) cats like to have their bellies rubbed!

(Some) cats like beef. How can they like beef when there are no cows their size??

Cats have different tastes. One may like plain tortilla chips, and the other might like the nacho cheese flavored.

Cats have no problem climbing right over you if you're in their way.

They can love you very much, but will still dig their sweet little claws into your arms if you try to put them down before they're ready.

Cats do not like their nails clipped- especially if you wrap them up like a mummy in a towel so you don't get shredded.

Cats are polite- they will sniff your food, then look at you in thanks before they take it from you.

(Some) cats do not like ice cream.

When you dress one cat up in girly bows and bangles, the other cat won't recognize him and act accordingly.

Cats get very embarrassed when wearing girly bows and bangles, and walk funny until you take them off.

Cats love windows, and will trip you up in the middle of the night, the moment you open your bedroom door to go to the bathroom just to get to them.

Cats will scare the crap out of you by jumping on the banister right as you pass by in the middle of the night.

The moment you decide to take the cats out of the bedroom, they run under the bed.

Cats are a lot friendlier to visitors of they dip their hands in catnip first.

This is what I've learned so far, and I still haven't listed everything- that would take too long!
They still have a lot to teach me, so I'll keep you posted as events warrant. God bless, and have a great day!

From a former cat owner - bingo! You nailed it. Very descriptive post. I was giggling and nodding my head the whole time. Loved it. Looking forward to more insights and observations as your relationship continues.

About the beef: I once read a book by a Cats Only vet who said he recommended all his clients serve their cats only beef baby food, since beef is a cat's natural food. We laughed our heads off! Of course we see cats bringing down cows to eat every day!
Cute post, Beth!
