Things Cats Are Really Bad At

March 15, 2021

Kitties are v ery curious little pets. In addition to catching mice, they have some rather unique talents, such as being able to sleep almost all the time, and in odd positions. However, there are a few things that Fluffy isn’t quite so good at as she may think. In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet clinic, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, a local vet lists some things Fluffy isn’t that skilled at.

F  ollowing Orders

Fluffy is quite intelligent in her own way, and she certainly can learn the do’s and don’ts of being a good kitty. However, she may not be all that interested in being a good kitty. Cats do what they want, when they want, and how they want. We suspect that most of our feline buddies have heard things like ‘Get down from there’ or ‘Get out of that’ quite a lot!

Being Serious

Cats really are fascinating pets. It can be easy to forget that these cute, cuddly little furballs are actually fierce predators … especially when Fluffy is doing something that makes her look rather silly. Actually, cats somehow manage to become more hilarious when they are trying to be serious. For instance, it’s hard not to giggle when you see your furry friend ‘clacking’ at a squirrel through a window, or stealthily trying to ambush that little red dot.


Have you ever heard an amorous feline singing in the moonlight, hoping to attract a lover? If you have, we sympathize. Fluffy’s ‘caterwauling’ is reason enough in and of itself to schedule spay or neuter surgery!

Helping With Housework

Cats really are grateful for the love and care we give them. Fluffy may try to repay you by ‘assisting’ with things like changing the sheets or folding laundry. Of course, your furball really isn’t much help.

Not Being In The Way

Kitties like to stick close to their humans … sometimes too close. We suspect that many of you are constantly telling your feline pals to move, or perhaps just picking them up and relocating them yourself. Fluffy does have a knack for running out in front of you, or hopping into boxes, cupboards, or suitcases.
