We adore cats.
And I don’t even have to list the reasons because there are too many. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some things that a person needs to get used to which we don’t realize before getting a cat. I mean when I got a cat, I didn’t realize that it involves so much care each and every day. Also, the fact that they will jump on everything no matter how many times you stop them. And also the fact that you can never eat in peace because they will stick their nose in everything.
Now, I am not saying it isn’t worth it just to see them booping us with their noses to show affection. I am just saying that one needs to think carefully before getting a cat. Because it is not all rainbows and fairy dust. And that is what the following people realized too late. They clearly don’t regret getting a cat but these behaviours can be quite the surprise once your kitty starts getting used to you.
You can see what I am talking about by scrolling below.
#1 You will soon learn that blackout curtains are useless when you have a cat.
#2 And also the fact that you can’t ever have privacy.
What do you mean by, ’What did you do?’ The shower curtains were like this already!
#3 We don’t get any personal space or the right to breathe anything but cat butt anymore.
#4 You only live to serve cats and that means no hobbies such as crocheting.
#5 They will always try to climb you to get as close to the ceiling as possible.

#6 They also love bathtubs but no water.

#8 You will learn to adapt your schedule to your kitty.
Slept in past normal breakfast time…
#9 You will never be able to eat food in peace.
Even though all of these things make them sound bad, having a cat is one of the best feelings in the world. because they are actually very loyal creatures and will show their care for you in their own way. Whether that means ‘petting’ you on your head when you feel sick or cuddling up with you and sleeping right on your stomach.
#10 They will do the weirdest things to get the jump on you.

#14 They do what they want even if it doesn’t make sense.
My cat sits up here all night meowing for attention, even if I bring her down to spend time together, she runs back up immediately and keeps meowing. Why cat, why?
#15 They are hunters so that means they think of your hands and feet as prey.
#16 Some cats are especially loud when they don’t get their way.
