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.

Cheryl: It sounds like you have many neighbors who enjoy Ozzy's visits and look out for him to make sure he stays safe. Kudos to you for raising such a friendly social kitty.

It is not a question of cheating as more she was getting her dues as she did protect the neighbors from such pests as mice, rappers, moles and underwear thieves. Since she retired to my Aunt with her Aga range things have not been as quiet.

Ozzy, pictured sacked out after a night out, definitely loves to share the love with my neighbor, but I can't blame him, she's a sweetheart who gives him lots of love and treats! All the neighbors know him and he goes to all the homes nearby for ear rubs. I know he shouldn't go out, and I tried so hard to keep him in when I got him from the shelter, but apparently he was used to his nights out and he insisted on going- he literally dug the carpet up in front of the doors! After a while I gave in, and he looks so blissful running around outside, up and down trees, stalking leaves, playing with squirrels, etc. that I've made peace with it. Even though I worry about him, Oz-man is such a smart cat, I think (hope/pray) he will be ok.
