The 10 Most Annoying Things Cats do to us Humans

Cat

Cats are great pets, but they’re really annoying. Anyone who has ever owned a cat or spent any length of time with a cat at all will tell you this is the absolute truth. Cats are irritating and annoying, and they really do know how to drive you crazy at times. On that note, however, we do love the concept of having a cat because they do make great pets. But just in case you’re not sure how annoying it’s going to be to have a cat of your own, we can tell you just how annoying it’s going to be.

They Chew You

For whatever reason, cats love to chew on people. In the most inopportune moments they find a way to come to you, stick one of your fingers in their mouths and make it all about them. They love the concept of doing this, and it’s really one of the most annoying things we’ve ever encountered. My cat does this all the time, but only when I’m in the middle of doing something else – like sleeping at 3 in the morning. Why, cats, why?

They Lick You

I love a cat purr, and I don’t even mind the cat cuddling in my lap when I’m in the middle of drinking my coffee in the morning. I do, however, mind the fact that my cat seems to find this time as good as any to make me a licking board. With such a sandpapery little tongue, this is something that drives me absolutely insane. And it’s even worse when they decide they need to lick your face or something that you just do not want their tongues touching – ever.

They Crawl all Over You

My cat does this all the time, and it’s something that almost all cat owners complain of at some point or another. Cats are just irritating in that they always want to be right on top of you. They want to be in the middle of your face, they want to paw at you, they want to sit on you, they want to be close to you. They do love you very much, but they have a really irritating way of showing that they love you so much.

They Interrupt Your Sleep

Cats love to get in the middle of the bed in the middle of the night and find a nice, comfortable spot in which they can lie down. And it’s usually right on your face. And it’s always something that makes you feel as if you are going to stop breathing at any given moment. No, it’s not a fun moment in life. But it happens and there is nothing we can do about it short of shutting the cat out of the bedroom, in which case they will stand outside the door and just meow for hours.

They Play Hard in the Middle of the Night

They play so hard in the middle of the night. They play so hard that you might want to give them away in the morning; or right then and there in the middle of the night. They play with whatever they can find, whether it is a water bottle that someone left on the kitchen counter, a hair tie that came off the floor somewhere, or just a piece of paper or dust or an imaginary friend they found somewhere. Cats are so annoying and so irritating in the middle of the night it’s not even funny.

They Meow Only at Nap Time

When you’re sleeping or the babies are sleeping or someone is sleeping, your cat is certainly in the midst of meowing at someone or something. You want peace and quiet and suddenly the cat is hungry or in need of something that he or she does not feel can wait even a second longer. This is what happens when you have a cat and a moment in which you need life to be quiet. It’s life with an animal in the house.

They Stare

Cats have staring problems. And while some believe it’s cute to see their cats sitting down staring at them, thinking that the look on the cat’s face is one of love and admiration, it’s not. It’s not cute, and it’s not love or admiration. In fact, it’s actually disdain, anger and completely creepy behavior. The look cats have managed to perfect is a little bit scary, and we just can’t help but think that this is what they look like when plotting our demise.

They Bang Their Heads into You

When your cat wants attention, he does not just ask for it. No, he actually takes the time to use his head as a battering ram by slamming it into your body repeatedly no matter what it is you are doing. It does not matter if you are in the middle of a nap, cooking dinner or feeding your newborn baby. If your cat wants your attention, your cat is getting your attention and you are just going to have to deal with the pain of your cat’s head being slammed fiercely into whatever body part the cat can reach.

They Put Their Bottoms on You

This is so gross, but it’s what they do. Your cat loves you and wants you to pay attention to it. And when it wants attention, it wants to be in your face and it wants to rub all over you. In theory, this is fine. However, in real life it’s a bit of an issue. It’s something that they do by rubbing their bottoms all over you, and it’s gross. They’re going to put it on your head, your face, your hands and anywhere else that they can put it, and that’s just disgusting in a way we cannot even describe to you.

They Stick Their Paws Under Doors and Freak You Out   

You can’t do anything alone when you have a cat because they will find you. They will hunt you down and they will find you. They will then spend the duration of your time in a locked room sticking their paws beneath the door in an attempt to freak you out. It’s probably more like they’re just trying to find a way in, but we think that they are actually trying to tell us they’re out there and want you to open the door. But it doesn’t make it any less creepy.
