19 Cat Owners Who Have Been Taken Hostage By Sleeping Cats

Decisions can be hard! But when it comes to making a decision of whether to wake up that snoring little kitty napping on your lap or just skip on the most important things you have in pending, it gets harder…


There has always been a debate whether it’s you who owns a cat or the cat who owns you? Well, we would say our feline fur owns us more as we fall prey to its exquisite beauty and charm. These cuddly bears love cuddling with their owners and often ditch their beds just to choose to sleep on their person, instead. And you can’t stop them from doing that! And why would we? All we want is affection from our fur buddy and we are finally getting that!

Here are a few instances where these sleepyheads chose the purrfect sleeping spot on their person and the owners fell hostage to their cats for not wanting to wake those adorable furballs. Hereby, surrendering and choosing to stay in and skip on their daily routine, just so the kitties could sleep tight! Scroll down and check them out;

Tadaaaaa. This is how they slowly make their way into your hearts first and then your laps.

These cat parents have their priorities sorted out!

What would you do with a full bladder and a sleeping kitty on your lap? They are too gorgeous to wake up. I hope we never get in a situation where waking these felines is our only option. Pretty sure we wouldn’t do it even then. I mean, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! And if doesn’t seem like one for you, consider yourself lucky.
