The Top Five Things Cats Find Most ANNOYING

Okay, so this post is really the top five things I (Lilybits) find most annoying--at this moment. As any fussy cat knows, my opinions could change shortly. After some intense training of my servants—it took me a few years to break them in--they still aren’t always listening. What’s the deal?

#5 – When I’m catching a simple catnap or dreaming about chasing chipmunks, one of my humans nearly rolls over on top of me at night. Or they wake me up to tell me how cute I am and scratch behind my ear during the day. (Never mind that I lick Mom’s nose when she’s sleeping and I want something.)


#4 – When Mom deserts me, leaving me ALONE long enough to make me wait for treats or wet food. I don’t understand why she isn’t content to stay home and be ignored by me while catering to my every whim. Isn’t that her job?

#3 – Dad cutting my nails. A girl’s manicure time is rather personal and I think I’ve done a pretty good job of it by scratching the love seat in the living room. . . and occasionally my scratching posts. Of course the genius makes things more difficult by putting tape on the side of the furniture. I don’t like that sticky feeling on my paws.


#2 – I’m doubly ANNOYED with this new policy Mom and Dad are following, because the vet said not to give me ANY more people food (Did she say to give me any less?) and fewer treats. I even promised not to tell the doctor next time I see her.  So what if I have a sensitive tummy? My taste buds are suffering! 

#1 – And the number one most annoying thing that my people do is not feeding me my wet food dinner right at five o’clock every day! My fine tuned feline internal clock always lets me know at least an hour before, so I can start bugging her. But when I whine too much, Mom locks me in the laundry room! Where’s the APSCA when you need them?

I hope my humans are reading this and taking all of this seriously. My job of keeping them in line is hard enough as it is.

WHAT ANNOYS YOU THE MOST? PLEASE SHARE BY LEAVING A COMMENT. We love getting comments! Purrrr

I'll be back Friday with a special tribute to my friend, Wild Cat.

  1. Oh Lilybits. I feel your pain. I too like to eat at 5 o'clock sharp otherwise I turn into not a nice version of my human self. Try to forgive your mommy. I'm sure she was just daydreaming about how awesome you are.

    2. Hmm . . . I think that's letting her off the hook a bit too easily.
      But you are right, Miss J'nell, I am awesome!

  2. Lilybits, I'm so glad you told us about these annoying things we do. We'll keep them in mind. ;-)

    1. Well, thanks, I think, but shouldn't you be worrying about
      what annoys Toby? I heard those monkey creatures are
      fussy things! Purrs and paw waves to Toby.

  3. I feel your pain, Lilybits. Try being more vocal. Acting out more often. That can only help.

    1. Thanks for the advice, Mr. Tom. I tried attacking mom's foot, but she laughed at me. :(

  4. You forgot the other #1 annoyance of cats--human laughter (especially if it is directed at them.) My cat and I both enjoyed your post. :)

    1. Yes, how could I forget that belittling laughter?! Here I am
      a mature and cunning feline, but my humans laugh at
      my antics like I am some cute little baby. Well, I don't
      mind being the center of attention, but it is rather
      embarrassing. Thanks for stopping by with your cat,
      Miss Lisa!

  5. This post resonated with me in my darkest most being. Having suffered the asininity, that I now accept as the rule rather than exception, of my human carers for the last 12 (human) years. The grievance highest on my list is yours as well. Every morning I bellow. This is where my food is located. This is where my bowl is. How hard is it for you imbeciles to put the two together? And every morning I wait. I would add though, that deplorable litter box conditions are a close second. Really. If the species were turned, would they ever put up with those kinds of conditions? Hardly. A kindred spirit, Darth (life-sentence being served with D.L. Diener)

    1. I was a bit of a free spirit until I was incarcerated by the rescue and I have been in my current captivity for about five and a half years, so far. I occasionally try to make a break for it, when it's warm out, but alas, I have been caught every time. I do know how you feel. Did I forget to mention the litter box? Perhaps
      I should have given a top ten list of annoyances!

      Darth, it warms my heart to know I am not alone in my
      grievances. Hope you are keeping D.L. in line and you will
      both visit our blog again. Thanks for the honest comment.

      what you've learned here--a cat's happiness might depend on it. ;)

  7. LOL! Cats are good at getting annoyed. And at being annoying! Too funny. :-)
    I think I'd like you, Lilybits. :-)

    1. Well, of course, Miss Diane. I am a cat, so I totally know what I'm
      talking about! Though I do admit I get a bit of help from my mom.
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

  9. Stellar here - totally with ya, Lillybits. Those humans don't have HALF the brains we do. Seriously - all they need to do is cater to our every whim. How hard is that???

    1. And everyone one would be so much happier, Stellar.
      If we had opposable thumbs we wouldn't have to put
      up with such incompetence! Thanks for stopping by and
      leaving a comment, Stellar.
