To strangle my cat
Tobythecat · 17/07/2017 08:57
Just got home, opened the front door to be greeted by shit truffles rolling towards me under the door. The cat has shit directly infront of the front door. Now I'm going to clean the door and underneath said door. Wish me luck.

Is this a 'my cat is a twat' thread? Can I nominate my bastard cat who has taken to smacking me in the face to get me up in the morning. Or whenever she fancies some attention. With claws.
Also, she believes I should not read in bed any more. Wee bitch.

Haha My old cat was 19 when she passed away. She was still happy and purry and playful to the end but she did get confused at times and once left me a present on the mat in the bathroom. The dark dark purple mat. That I stood on at about 4am needing to pee barefoot....
Still miss her furry wee face though

ilovebanf I don't shut my own (annoying!) cat out for two reasons:
- he'd whine and scratch at the door in the night, which would wake me up anyway
- cat cuddles in bed in the morning are the best thing ever and I wouldn't stop them for any amount of undisturbed sleep!

Banff our bedroom door doesn't shut properly. And if I kick her out of the house overnight, she tends to slip in when dh leaves for work at 5am. Also, the fecker sneaks in during the day to hide, and just rises up at the end of the bed in the middle of the night scaring the shit out of you
Kittencatkins after having several nocturnal showers in bed, I switched from a glass of water beside the bed to a sports bottle.

One of ours used to lurk on the stairs then shoot his head and paw through the banister to whack you on the head as you walked past.
Same cat waited til DH was home sick from work and vomited scavenged chicken curry all over the duvet he was sleeping under, presumably in solidarity.
Grotty little fuckers

Ostentatious we also forked out at the vets to find out our cat was a dick when he piddled in the log basket. Fortunately it's a rural vet so only cost £45 but I was given a lecture on how I'm too soft on him
Same cat spends all night, every night on my pillow. Not too bad until he sneezes. Too many mornings I've worked up with cat snot in my hair his record is 3 inches

One of mine would drop a barely alive mouse on my pillow in the morning, to remind me it was her brekkie time (at five a.m.)
My dearly departed ginger tom would sit outside neighbouring cat flaps barring them entry into their own homes.
My Persian Blue sleeps across my neck. If I dare to shut him out of the bedroom he yowls like something possessed.
Watching me sewing up a patchwork blanket, that I had spent months knitting, before spraying all over the finished item was ginger tom's greatest moment.
I miss him.

When I had my old cats, we were in a flat-share. My housemate once woke me up at 3am (I had to be up for work at 5), drunk and stumbling around the house. I got up for work as normal, but found when he woke later, my cat had thrown up outside his door and he stepped in it barefoot and hungover when he got up for work

If you shut your bedroom door, they scratch at the carpet outside the door which wakes you up anyway and wrecks the carpet. If you put them outside the house, they yowl loudly which wakes you up anyway and also wakes kids/neighbours. Its easier/cheaper/less disturbing to be woken by a swipe to the face!
