Most men seem to want to bend the world to their will. Cats, as we all know, couldn’t care less and will do whatever their want to.
Living with a cat and a man can sometimes be difficult (and hilarious). Here are some things my cat does that really irritate my boyfriend.
#1 – He will bite my boyfriend in the elbow
We’re not talking about a nip. No, we’re talking about a real bite. Usually it happens after Mr. Cat meows for attention for a while and when he doesn’t get it, he’ll bit my boyfriend’s elbow. I tell him that he just wants to get attention, but my boyfriend still gets annoyed.
#2 – He won’t clean his bottom
This doesn’t happen very often but sometimes Mr. Cat won’t clean his butt after pooping and since he has white hair it is out in plain view. My boyfriend is annoyed every time this happens.
#3 – He’ll expose his belly for petting and then attack
This one is a classic! Even tough every cat does this, there are still people (like my boyfriend) that get indignant about this. He gets upset about the way that sneaky Mr. Cat lays a trap for him with that fluffy belly.
#4 – He’ll leave cat hair in my boyfriend’s fresh clean underwear
No matter how much cleaning, vacuuming, or dusting cat hair will get everywhere. My boyfriend should know and accept this by now, however he still gets annoyed when he finds cat hair in his boxers.
#5 – He’ll sleep all day and then go absolutely nuts at midnight
What specifically annoys my boyfriend is my cat jumping on the walls because he’ll leave paw marks all around the house.
#6 – Even though he has a fresh bowl of water he’ll insist to drink from the bathtub
This means that when he comes out of the bathtub his paws are wet and he’ll leave marks all around the house.
#7 – My boyfriend bought him an expensive cat tree scratcher but he still prefers to use the kitchen chairs as a scratching post
This means that the kitchen chairs are completely ruined and we really need to buy new ones (preferably made from a material my cat can’t destroy).
#8 – The word “No” is completely foreign to him
No matter how much my boyfriend says “No”, my cat will do whatever he wants to.
After reading this you must be thinking that my boyfriend hates Mr. Cat. Well, the truth is that he loves him! He’ll give him back massages, pet him, and buy him yummy treats. But sometimes he’ll freak out with some of the weird and quirky things Mr. Cat does (and I have a laugh).
What about you? How does your partner react to your cat’s quirks?
