Things Your Cat Can’t Be Bothered To Care About

Kitties are quite opinionated little furballs. We know they have very strong feelings about naps, baths, catnip, and loud noises. However, Fluffy isn’t quite that opinionated about everything. IN fact, there are quite a few things that she just really couldn’t care less about. A Smyrna, GA vet lists some of them below.


Cats definitely like to keep their humans under close supervision. Fluffy will monitor you as you go through your daily chores. She’ll even follow you into the bathroom!


One of Fluffy’s more purrplexing quirks is her habit of knocking things off tables and counters with her paw. We suspect that more than one of you have lost small glasses or figurines this way. Keep your collectibles in spots your pet can’t reach.

Your Schedule

Fluffy definitely lives on her own terms … and her own schedule. Your pet may sleep through most of the day, and then decide to start batting her favorite toy down the hall in the middle of the night. (Cats also have their own sense of time, but that’s another topic.)

Food Costs

Kitties can be a bit finicky. Fluffy has certainly irritated some of her owners by refusing to eat what was put in her bowl. We get it: cat food isn’t cheap these days! But to be fair, there is some justification here: in the wild, cats always eat their prey fresh, and will turn away from anything that smells even a little bad.


You can’t really blame Fluffy for wanting to keep her claws sharp. This is an instinctive behavior, and one that she would depend on in the wild. That said, it can be frustrating to find your pet using your chair or sofa as a manicure station. (Tip: make sure your fuzzy diva has a suitable scratching post.)


Here in the South, we take manners very seriously. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to get that across to our feline friends. Actually, it’s a good thing that kitties are so cute, because they can be a bit rude. Fluffy often refuses to come when called. She may suddenly decide to bite your hand or pounce on your shoes. She’s also been known to groom herself in the middle of a crowded room. Yikes!
