10 Moments Every Cat Owner Experiences

June 1 2019

Kitties have some very special qualities. They’re cute, cuddly, and highly entertaining. Fluffy is also full of adorable quirks. And, while every kitty is unique, cats do share some common habits and characteristics. Here, a McHenry, IL vet lists some moments every cat owner will experience.

Fluffy Got Stuck

Cats depend on their claws for survival in the wild. That doesn’t prevent them from having occasional mishaps, however. Sooner or later, Fluffy will get her claw stuck on something, and you’ll have to rescue her.

The Ungraceful Feline

Kitties are usually very graceful. Usually. Fluffy has been known to miss a few jumps.

Helping Paw

Fluffy is actually a very helpful little pet. Your kitty will offer her ‘assistance’ with making the bed, wrapping gifts, or folding laundry.

Chair Theft

At some point, you’ll get up from your spot to get something. When you get back, you’ll find Fluffy in your place.


Does Fluffy sometimes meow to demand that you feed her right meow, even if she just ate? Many cats have their owners wrapped around their paws!

Box Obsession

At some point, you’ll bring something home in a box. Fluffy will immediately hop into said box, and it will be her new favorite thing for the next week or so.

Being Ignored

Have you ever tried to call your cat, and started to worry when she didn’t come, only to realize that she was blatantly ignoring you? If so, you’re not alone!

Being Nagged

On the other end of the spectrum, some cats want to be held or petted 24/7. Fluffy will eventually jump into your lap at an inopportune time. She may also follow you around, rub against your legs, meow incessantly, or run out in front of you.

Furry Voyeur

Fluffy likes to keep a close eye on her humans. Your cat may follow you around like a little shadow, and may even try to accompany you to the bathroom.

Pure Love

Cats offer us unconditional love, and have a way of knowing when to snuggle up with us. At some point, your kitty will be on your lap or maybe just sitting beside you, purring and content, and you’ll just smile with contentment. That’s the magic of kitties, and how they fill our lives with love!
