We've recently moved into a very tiny village, two doors down from my in - laws. (moved in December)
We have a dog and a cat. (no kids)
FIL said the other day that my cat was pissing off their neighbour.
Apparently neighbour is absolutely furious and the cat is causing all kinds of hell.
What hell, you ask?
Well, she sunbathes on his dustbin and sits up when he comes out in the morning to stare at him getting into his car.
Apparently the ragey shouting we hear most mornings is him screaming at the cat, who just looks at him whilst he does so.
FIL, I think, expected me to do something about the cat's "rudeness".

AIBU to think this is actually quite funny and neighbour is a little unhinged?

Remind him that a cat may look at a king.

Or something.

No - you are definitely not being unreasonable, if all your cat is doing is looking. But I bet that is not all it is doing. I bet it is silently JUDGING your neighbour, as well...

I can just imagine your cats expression wink

Oh this has really cheered me up.

Your cat sounds adorable.

Does the cat lick her fanjo whilst winking at the neighbour?

I bet your cat is shitting all over his lawn

or if it isn't some other cat is and he thinks it's yours

I'm sure your cat knows perfectly well that the neighbour doesn't like cats & is going all out to annoy him by looking at him.

Cats always know grin

Aw ffs. Typical pfc behaviour. Teach your fucking cat some manners. grin

Yabvu and so is your cat. If i were your neighbour is be calling the police ASAP!

mrsjay Mon 17-Mar-14 18:34:42

oh your cat should show the man his butt means he lieks him even more stupid man

Objection Mon 17-Mar-14 18:34:50

Nope, no shitting on his lawn - I asked!

You know your cat is saying to himself, whilst watching your shouty-purple-with-rage neighbour:

"What a fucking arsehole...who is he shouting at?"


Objection Mon 17-Mar-14 18:35:43

(the neighbour not the cat, no point asking her - she's a compulsive liar)

I don't like cats, hate them but even I could handle a cat looking at me.

I think cats do look at me funny-like because they know I don't like them. Fair enough.

vestandknickers Mon 17-Mar-14 18:36:59

That's hilarious.

Can you get your cat a little T shirt with the neighbour's face on it for her to wear?

Your cat sounds brilliant. grin

(the neighbour not the cat, no point asking her - she's a compulsive liar)

...And a rude,stary bitch wink

Famzilla Mon 17-Mar-14 18:37:16

Hahaha. Your cat sounds brilliant. I wish our neighbours 5 cats (yes, 5) would do something cute like that instead of using my tiny garden as their litter tray.

Objection Mon 17-Mar-14 18:38:17

I am tempted to draw raised eyebrows on her to increase the judginess of her look.

Mothergothel99 Mon 17-Mar-14 18:39:48

Your cat knows! My dog makes a beeline for every dog hating person he meets.

Tell him you'll have a word with said cat.

crazynanna Mon 17-Mar-14 18:41:49

Like this? Does she stare like this?

SmashleyHop Mon 17-Mar-14 18:42:14

Sorry this thread made me think of this..

cozietoesie Mon 17-Mar-14 18:45:12

Well I can quite understand his position. That cat should be inside getting ready for school! Be prepared for the report to Social Services.

Objection Mon 17-Mar-14 18:45:50

I didn't know we could get photos on AIBU now!!!

And she does suffer a little from RBF (resting bitch face]

OurMiracle1106 Mon 17-Mar-14 18:46:18

Personally I would stroke the cat as I walked past it n say morning kitty (or tabby or similar) and think no more of it. I once woke having left ny back door open to a white cat laying on me. She used to come in a far bit after that. Was nice to have a cat about but I grew up with animals so doesn't bother me

But, from what you say, it's not just the neighbour, it's also your FIL who is unhinged, no?

What did you say to your FIL when you heard about your cat's "rudeness"
