12 Signs Your Cat is Cheating on You

  • 2 of 3

5. He’s Being Extra Secretive – You’ve noticed a sudden change in his behavior and he’s acting much more secretive then he ever used to be. He often chooses to go in the bathroom when you’re in the kitchen and the majority of the time you have no clue of his whereabouts.

6. He’s Getting Fatter – You haven’t been giving him any extra food but he’s piling on the pounds and is looking bigger than ever. The only logical explanation is that he’s been over indulging at someone else’s house.


7. He Pays an Unusual Amount of Attention to His Appearance – If up until now your puss hasn’t paid much attention to his appearance, but all of a sudden he’s spending an excessive amount of time grooming himself, he may be seeing someone behind your back.

8. He’s Got Lipstick on His Collar – You bent down to kiss him on the head and were taken aback when you spotted a big lipstick smudge on his collar. You haven’t kissed him around the neck recently and you certainly wouldn’t wear such a cheap and nasty color.

It certainly appears that someone knows their cats.

When reading this, thought about human cheating... also, have to agree that cats should not "roam free" ... it has become increasingly dangerous for them out there.

My Mom did have an affair with three cats, but it was because they were completely neglected and quite starved by the neighbor lady (she certainly believed that because they were more or less indoor cats they can find a proper meal outside - which was not possible there). She gave them food and kindness and medical care (against worms and insects and parasite). In the end, they were completely hers.

Seems like the author is reliving a personal experience with a human. Oh how can our pussies be so two faced as a human? Didnt think puss was capable of that!
Now that is getting to be TOO human. ;-)

Bad kitty - no cheating! :-)

As a metro neighborhood dweller, would not feel comfortable exposing my 3 cats to the dangers of traffic and not right minded people who roam the streets. However, my cats still find ways to hide and scare me to think they've run off ---> until they are hungry or want attention.

I realize the article is meant to be "tongue in cheek", but as a cat rescuer, it is my firm belief that we need to stop alluding that it is ok for cat's to roam free. Cat's need to be indoors ONLY, unless a fenced- in outdoor "catio" is provided. There are just too many way's they can be hurt or killed, unintentionally as well as intentionally.

When I go away, I take my cat to the kitty condos. Anyone who comes in contact with her, write a notation on a folder that is given to me. On more than one occasion the comments have been something like, "Has to have her loving." That's her alright.
