Things Cats Don’t Care About

September 1, 2021

Cats are very curious little furballs. While Fluffy is quite loving and cuddly, there are some things that she can’t be bothered to care about. If you’re fascinated by these feline quirks and want to delve deeper into the mystery of their unique personalities, check out our article on Cattitude. A Salem, VA vet lists some of them below.


Kitties are very emotional, and really are happiest when they are close to their humans. For the most part, this is a very adorable trait. However, Fluffy may sometimes go a bit overboard with this. She may follow you into the bathroom, or get underfoot at a bad time.

Your Sleep Schedule

Our feline friends are definitely creatures of habit, and they like to stick to set routines for all of those 37 daily naps, 8 meals, and 3 yoga sessions. If you’re late with your kitty’s breakfast, she may wake you up to demand that you feed her right meow.

Your Furniture

To be fair, Fluffy isn’t trying to ruin your things. Cats depend on their nails in the wild, so it makes sense that they have a strong, instinctive need to keep them sharp. That said, your pet probably won’t lose any sleep over that rip in your sofa. Offer your furry little diva a good scratching post or board. If her scratching behavior becomes problematic, consider consulting our Behavioral Counseling services for strategies to redirect this natural behavior more appropriately.


One thing we can say about cats: they really don’t have expensive tastes. Fluffy will be just as content in a cardboard box as she would a fancy kitty condo.


Cats are remarkably lithe and flexible, which is one reason they enjoy sleeping in positions we normally associate with knots. Fluffy is also quite an acrobat, and is capable of performing some pretty amazing jumps and spins.

The Cost Of Cat Things

Have you ever bought your feline pal an expensive bed, only to have her sleep in an old shoebox instead? There’s no accounting for taste!

Your Computer

Fluffy often instinctively seeks out warm napping spots to curl up in. Because computers and laptops generate heat, they often become prime targets. If your kitty can’t seem to stay off your computer, you may want to set your screen lock time to 30 or even 15 seconds. This can help keep your furry friend from accidentally messing up a document, or worse, posting a status on your social media page.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if ever we can be of assistance. As your local Salem, VA animal clinic, we are here to help!
