Things Cats Just Don’t Care About

April 1 2017

Cats all have their own characters, and their own purrsonal preferences. However, kitties do share some likes and dislikes. For instance, most of them love snuggles, treats, sunbeams, boxes, catnips, and comfy beds. Of course, there are also some things that cats simply don’t care about. At all. A Crown Point, IN vet lists some of them below.


Cats like to monitor their owners very closely. Your curious—and nosy—little pet may follow you from room to room as you go about your day, carefully supervising your every move. Some kitties even follow their humans into the bathroom!

Your Sleep

If there’s one thing our feline overlords take very seriously, it’s breakfast. Fluffy may wake you up when she’s ready for her morning meal by smacking your face with her paw, or meowing loudly at you. Chances are, your furball simply won’t care if it’s your day to sleep in! Cats also don’t see anything wrong with batting their toys down the hall in the middle of the night.

Your Furniture

Fluffy’s nail care station is often a source of exasperation among her human pals. Your pet isn’t trying to ruin your things. In fact, she’s really only obeying her natural urge to keep her claws in good shape. That said, it’s probably safe to say that your furry little diva just doesn’t care about your furniture. (Tip: get your cat a good, sturdy scratching post that is tall enough for her to stretch on, and offer her treats, toys, and praise for using it.)

Your Comfort

Isn’t it convenient how cats seem to fit purrfectly into our laps? Kitties love curling up on their humans for a nice long snooze . . . and may protest with an adorable meow if you move her to get up. Fluffy also enjoys snuggling up with her owners at night. It isn’t uncommon for people to find themselves pushed to the edge of the bed, while their pets sprawl out in the middle. Your furball may also try to sleep on your pillow, or even on your head!


Does your feline buddy sometimes twist herself into strange contortions when she is napping? Fluffy can sleep in some very awkward positions, and she certainly isn’t afraid of heights!
