Who is the Boss, You or Your Cat?

Cats are the boss at home

It’s time to work out once and for all, who is the boss in your home?

Cats are known for being aloof and mysterious, as well as the ultimate companion and family member. But when do you know that your favourite feline is really the boss of you? Online pet store, Fletcher of London gives us 5 signs that your cat wears the (fluffy) trousers in your relationship.

Here at The People’s Friend Online, we adore cats and are paying close attention to see who is the real boss!

Hogs the Covers 

The minute you sit or lay down, do you find your cat appears from nowhere? Even worse, you turn over in the middle of the night to find that your kitty has occupied your space, leaving you hanging off the edge of the bed!

Empty Plate

At meal times do you find yourself unable to resist those puss-in-boots eyes and end up giving most of the ‘good stuff’ to your furry friend? We’ve only got ourselves to blame when your cat won’t eat their Felix, in favour of whatever you happen to be eating for dinner.

Personal Space

If you find your cat using you as a nap cushion the minute you sit down, it’s clear you’ve been over taken by your best It’s not unusual to find yourself tripping over your cat as they get under your feet!

Make demands

When cats want something, they don’t stop until they get it. From asking for a snack to crying to be let out, chances are you won’t get a minute’s peace – even less if you’ve got more than one cat.

Shopping Spree 

Gone are the days of shopping just for yourself, soon you’ll find that you’re automatically buying treats, food and accessories for your cat without even realising. When that happens, it’s guaranteed they’ve got you under the thumb – or paw!
