Fluffy’s Pet Peeves
October 15, 2021
October 15th is National Grouch Day. This one applies to quite a few of our feline friends. Fluffy can be very sweet and lovable, but she can also get, well, a bit crabby, especially if something annoys her. A local Lewisville, TX vet lists some things that irritate kitties in this article.

Nap Interruptions

Kitties take their napping schedules very, very seriously. Understandably, Fluffy can get quite upset if you wake her up—or worse, move her—mid nap.

Baths

Our feline friends are very good about keeping clean. However, some people like to bathe their cats. Fluffy may also need a bath if she were to get something spilled on her fur. Suffice it to say, most kitties are not going to be very happy about this.

Car Rides

While there are a few furballs out there that enjoy going for rides, the vast majority of our feline buddies are definitely not fans. Many of our patients complain all the way in to the clinic and all the way home!

Being Ignored

Fluffy may have a reputation for being aloof, but she’s actually very cuddly and affectionate. If your kitty wants attention, she may meow at you, rub against your legs, or hop into your lap. Some cats also try more dramatic tactics, such as knocking things off tables or pouncing on your ankles.

Too Much Attention

On the other end of the spectrum, paying your cute little pet too much attention is also a serious transgression in the kitty book of laws. Keep in mind that Fluffy can change her mind about whether or not she wants to be held or petted at any given time, and without warning.

Improper Attention

Some cats like to be held, while others prefer to curl up in their humans’ laps. If you don’t give Fluffy the right type of attention, your furball might be a bit purrturbed.

Other Cats

Few things will get Fluffy’s temper like spotting a strange cat crossing her yard. And if you come home with another kitty, be prepared to deal with some cattitude!

Slow Service

Another huge faux pas? Being late with Fluffy’s breakfast! If you’re late with any of your furry pal’s three breakfasts, you may find yourself with a cranky kitty on your hands. Do you have questions about your pet’s health or care? Call us, your Lewisville, TX animal clinic, today!
