see what happens when we worship them once, they don't forget. that's what the side street meowing is all about, we are their slaves we are suppose to do whatever they demand, we get scratched, it don't matter, they are the master!
uncertain if the cat is into self play toys. some cats like the alone entertainment time, others just want to be rude and see how many times they can trip you up before bedtime. I wonder if it's a sport...
They do always attempt to be an asshole, I guess it's because their genetics realize humans have very little defense again the "cute fluffy face of a cat", so it does its ruthless predator kitty some easy game.
if it helps they don't like it when they become the victim. the times I turn on the cat it's an all out war and they tend to be the one limping away. naw I don't hurt them, I have learned cats tend not to like loud noises, water or even letting them play with kids. we sure do loose a lot of cats that way, not even the food keeps them (the strays) around when the little girls want to play cat dress up.
Can relate. I have an extended family that believes a trip to the pet store is a game of pokemon. In the past I've had to take birds and rabbits off their hands. Birds weren't a big deal. But rabbits? Yeah, fuck rabbits.
I hope one day the world will come to a conclusion that getting a pet should be followed by liscencing and testing procedures (and also as a lawyer, my personal opinion is that animals must not be considered to be "goods", but be given a special new status), but we live in a world where you can make kids being a 13 year old moron, so... not soon.
Just think about how you can you look back one day and be happy with all you've done with your pet and be happy that you gave them the funnest happiest time you possibly could ^^ they wont always be around forever so try to cherish the times you can play with them. I understand it can be tiring but in the end it will be worth the time spent making memories
PS i have never owend a cat but i have a puppy who i love to death, we go hiking and play quite a bit ^^
