12 Signs Your Cat Is Cheating on You

12 Signs Your Cat Is Cheating on You
  • 1 of 3

Editor’s note: This post is a Care2 favorite. It was originally published on August 28, 2013. Enjoy!

Think your cat might be cheating? Here are 12 tell tale warning signals that should raise the reg flag:

1. He Comes Home Late – If your puss is normally curled up on the end of your bed by 9 but recently he’s started rolling in around 11/12, you might want to start asking questions.

2. He Smells of Perfume – If you can smell another woman’s perfume on your kitty when he comes through the cat flap, chances are he’s a cheater. Even if he’s tried to cover it up through vigorous licking, your senses know things and he’s not fooling anyone.

3. He’s Not Interested in Snuggling – One minute he’s the snuggliest cat in the world, the next he barely even looks in your direction. If your cat is playing and getting his fill of cuddles elsewhere, then that would explain his sudden lack of physical contact.

4. You Find an Unexplained Hair on His Coat – So you’re carrying out his regular grooming routine and you chance upon a long blonde hair clinging to his coat. Problem is you’re a brunette and so is everyone else in the household.

If you care about animals, please sign these petitions to stop the Yulin dog and cat meat festival in China.

You can also look up the number and email for your Chinese embassy or consulate and tell them you will be avoiding Chinese products if they go ahead with this.

I have friends who never let their kitties outside and feel sad for them, see them climbing the windows or wanting out so bad, its instinct for them to be outside their ancestor is the Lynx and they can do fine outside most of the time, I have 2 who do and done well for 10 yrs all fixed and living in country could go anywhere but just hang at the ranch and enjoy outdoors allot and do great as hunters keeping the mice and golpher population to a minimal, never had one mouse in the house due to them except once for a present LOL after I lost my inside kitty that was the Alfa and all loved her and knew I missed her badly

C' est vrai que certains chats peuvent aller manger chez un voisin. Mais son comportement avec nous ne change pas. Je ne pense pas que cet article soit sérieux.
