Disrespectful Kitties
March 15, 2021

March 28th is Respect Your Cat Day ! Of course, for many people, every day is Respect Your Cat Day. These little balls of fur certainly do  have a way of getting us to pamper them. However, Fluffy doesn’t always show us the same respect we show her. A Wichita, KS vet lists a few examples of this below.

Refusing Orders          

Have you ever called your cat, and then begun to worry when she didn’t respond … only to find her relaxing somewhere, looking quite smug? In case you were wondering, yes, Fluffy actually does ignore you sometimes.

Love Bites

Cats have many quirks. One of the most ‘purrplexing’ ones is the fact that they sometimes attack their owners playfully and/or as a way of showing affection. Your furry pal may gently nip at you while you’re brushing her or petting her. Or, she may pounce on you out of the blue. To teach your kitty to play respectfully, tell her ‘No’ or blow in her face when she does this, then ignore her for a while. (Note: if your cat is actually attacking you, consult your vet.)

Chair Theft

Kitties are very opportunistic, and they’re always on the lookout for warm napping spots. It’s probably safe to say that at some point, you’ve gotten up for something, only to find Fluffy soundly sleeping in your spot a few minutes later.


Kitties just can’t resist knocking small things off of tabletops or counters. Fluffy has certainly broken some fragile nicnacs in her day. That’s pretty disrespectful! (Note: keep small and sharp objects out of paws’ reach.) 

Back Talk

Just like people, cats all have their own purrsonalities. Some are chatty and talkative, while others don’t have much to say. There are also times when Fluffy just wants to argue, or at least get the last word in. If you have to move your pet mid-nap, you may get a little annoyed meow in response. You may also get an earful if your furry friend doesn’t like what you offered her for dinner!

Sleep Interruption

Fluffy takes her morning meal very, very seriously. If you sleep past your kitty’s breakfast time, she may very well take it upon herself to wake you up, perhaps by smacking you, biting you, or walking over you.
