5 signs your cat is the boss

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.



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!



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.



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 buddy. It’s not unusual to find yourself tripping over your cat as they get under your feet!



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.

They have you wrapped around their little furry paw…and I bet you wouldn’t have it any other way!



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!
