It's Respect Your Cat Day, but don't expect that your feline will show you any appreciation in return
March 28 is Respect Your Cat Day. This is good advice. You should always show your cat love, appreciation and reverence. There is a reason this animal was worshipped by ancient Egyptians.
But just because we’re expected to show cats respect, that doesn’t mean they are going to return the favor. In fact, sometimes it seems like they take our devotion as permission to behave any way they please. They get away with it too, thanks to their precious, smooshy faces and too-perfect toe beans.
This is just a sample of the ways that felines disrespect the people they love on a daily basis, yet still manage to be adorable and lovable while doing so.
No Respect for Your Belongings
Never show a cat you care about something unless you want it to be subjected to your kitty’s mischievous whims.
Actually, Just Don’t Show Interest In Anything Other Than Your Cat
Even if the object of your attention is yourself, most kitties take great offense to losing your interest (even if they act like they don’t care) and will find ways to thwart your efforts to explore other projects.
Catkind Does Not Get a Free Pass
Take comfort in the fact that felines have a blanket, base level disrespect for all things, including other cats.
Your Cat’s Schedule Is Your Schedule
You mean you don’t want to wake up at 4:30 in the morning to watch your pet eat breakfast? Too bad!
Computers Are Nothing But a Heat Source
Thankfully, crafty cats have not yet learned how to harness computer technology to their advantage. They have learned that it really annoys their owners when they sit on it, though.
