13 tweets about cats that will remind you it's totally OK to hate yours sometimes

Don’t feel bad.

AS SOMEONE WHO grew up with cats, I never understood people’s dislike for them.

When words like ‘sneaky’, ‘sly’ and ‘evil’ were bandied around, I pictured the three ridiculous furballs who called my family home theirs, and struggled to reconcile the two.

Sneaky? Sly? Evil? Those terms suggested agency and our cats spent the vast majority of their time sleeping. Takes a certain kind of evil to bring down a housing estate when you’re 16-hours deep into your latest nap.

What I found hilarious about the whole cat vs dog debate was that while there were plenty of reasons to dislike cats, those who did rarely hit upon them.

And then I realised that you needed to actually share a living space with a cat to know its true shortcomings.

Evil? Hardly. Petty? Clumsy? Sometimes incontinent? Sure.

So, here are 13 tweets that you’ll relate to if you love your cat with all your heart, but know it can be an utter asshole at times.

1. Mervin, for God’s sake.

2. Yeah Leo, get off your damn cross.

3. Yeah, they’ll do that. 

4. That’s why she hasn’t taught it to you though.

5. She probably didn’t do it on purpose, but she’ll definitely keep you guessing.

6. Who’s really to blame here though?

7. We mean, who knows?

8. And then there’s that.

9. Selfish? Sure.

10. Embarrassing? Always.

11. Seriously, get it together.

12. It’s part of their charm… in a way.

13. Yeah, what’s with this?
