Things Cats Don’t Understand

February 15, 2023

Have you ever noticed your cat looking at you with a smug, self-assured expression, as though she were privy to some universal secret? Fluffy does seem quite wise and all knowing at times. Then again, she sometimes eats wallpaper, and likes to show affection by biting and scratching. A local vet lists a few things that just don’t make sense to our feline overlords in this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO animal clinic, serving Louisville, CO and surrounding areas.


While our canine patients love going on car rides, our feline ones are much less enthusiastic, to put it mildly. Fluffy seems to think that cars are evil robots that have kidnapped her and are rushing her off to certain doom.


Kitties are very cute, which is why they often get away with some pretty bad behavior. Fluffy has crashed more than one Zoom meeting over the last few years, and feels no shame in smacking small objects off our tables, getting fur in our morning coffees, or taking up most of the bed. And that’s not even counting her penchant for bringing her humans dead mice!


Our furry friends bond very closely to their human pals. That unconditional love is a truly special and beautiful thing! However, there are occasions where Fluffy could stand to tone things down a little. For instance, there’s really no need for her to follow us into the bathroom.


Kitties are remarkably graceful … at least, most of the time. Fluffy does occasionally miss a jump or roll herself off a desk. However, if you’ve ever wondered why our feline friends are able to execute those gravity-defying jumps and twists, well, wonder no more. Cats clearly have their own theories about physics!


If you like taking baths, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen an inquisitive, furry head pop up beside the tub as you’re relaxing. Fluffy may even stick her paw into the water … only to immediately regret it.


As more and more of our lives revolve around online stores and interactions, kitties have also taken to spending more time online. However, they do it by actually lying or sitting on computers.
