5 things that prove your cat really is the one in charge

If you haven't already worked it out, your cat believes they are in charge of you, your household and pretty much the entire universe. And they may be right.

While you may like to think that you are the boss of your household, in reality, it's more likely that it is your cat who is in charge.

Don't believe us? Here are five things that prove your cat rules the roost in your home.

1. They sit/lay where they want    

It's their house, after all, so of course, they are going to park themselves wherever they fancy, even if it means the dining table. While you may prefer that your furry friend didn't spread out on the surface you like to eat on or knock over your stuff that's on there, you aren't actually going to do anything about it, are you?

2. Cuddles and strokes are only on their terms

As with most things cat-related, strokes and cuddles are on their terms, so when you stroke them and they nip you, it's not that they have a behaviour problem. It's simply that they aren't in the mood, and you should wait until they are.

3. Their stuff fills your house

While you may have always aspired to fill your home with beautiful furniture, the reality is that the first thing people see when they walk into your home is a massive cat tower. And the furniture in your home that is yours is covered in their fur anyway!

4. They drink from your glass (and you let them)

They have a fresh bowl of water every day, or you may have even 'splashed' out on a cat fountain for them. But for your cat, there's nothing that tastes better than your drink. Well, it's their drink now.

5. Your bed is their bed

As far as your cat is concerned, your bed is their bed. So while your cat may have a top of the range cat bed of their own, you find that most nights, you must fit around your feline friend while they sleep because, after all, your cat must always be as comfy as possible.

The thing is though, we wouldn't have it any other way!
