Do Your Cats Sometimes Act Like Brats?

If I'm late with their food, my cats let me know it. Do your cats get bratty like mine do?

Nope. They don't act like brats, but my youngest has her days when she wants cuddles at 3:00am and she doesn't mind waking me for that.

Kirby was my biggest brat-bully. My Princess Ezzie-Wezzie--her actual name was Ezmeralda not Ezmerelda!-would be eating her food when Kirby'd come over and nudge her out of the way so he could eat!! I'd get so mad at him; I took that opportunity to spend some time alone with my Princess Ezzie and we'd lay on the sofa and 'make snuggles' while Kirby-King-of-the-House-and-my-Heart, ate.

My cat is 23 and she is a wee bully at times,especially when she wants my company,she dictates what room etc and is quite happy to wake me up regardless of time if she so desires,but worth every heartbeat.

Too many similarities for me to want either one. They can both be amusing at times.

What? My cats? Just because they're pampered, spoiled, arrogant, demanding, conniving, destructive, catered to hand and foot.....that doesn't make 'em brats, does it?
Oh, okay, I admit it. My cats are world-class brats...and the bloody lil moggies are PROUD of it!

My cat makes herself understood very well, meows in a different way every time she wants something, food, attention or something else. Sometimes also makes the 'ambushes', hides and suddenly jumps on you, almost makes you realize that it's time to play with her!!!

The beginning of a new school year is just hell for all of us. My boys, over the summer are used to eating eating around lunch time. During the school year, I get home about 4. Lord, is there hell to pay!
It's not as if they don't have dry food, it's the canned they are missing. I have a 7ft. bay window in my living room. Nearly every day, they are sitting in that window wondering where that 5'7' can opener is.
There is no hello, there is only "where the hell have you been!"
This does get better as the school year goes on; I'm not as much afraid to enter my house....

My last two cats ahd a hard time adjusting when each of the boys went out on their own. Each cat had his/her own boy and when my oldest left Little Bits, female, would start meowing after everyone went to bed - she missed her bed partner. She finally condescended to sleep with mon. Same with my youngest. Big Guy kept going into the small BR and seemed lost. He'd just sit there, sometimes curling up in the spot where the bed used to be. Of course they both ended up sleeping with me. Brats never; sweeties always.

Are you kidding my cats are the role model. Role model for brats that is.

Well, of course, they are only human.

haha, I don't think brats is the right words, cats aren't human so I don't define them that way even if my cat is family. Mine's fussy, loves attention, loves me to follow her around, etc but I wouldn't call that a brat

I agree more with Vicky. I'm not sure i've ever called my cats a brat. Not the correct word but little silly names. I have one that a head butt for attention literally knocks me over... every day if I don't hold on to something. he has to get his attention and he's had a hard life. Not an outdoor cat and someone must have thrown him out and he was hit by a car once or twice at least. Def has some brain damage but a lap cat . That head of his could kill. It's so strong.... So before I can even get his food down it may fly up in the air along with the water bowl all over us. He just wants attention first and wants to lie there rolling while I just talk.... So many could wonder if he is a bit bratty I suppose .The word brat des not come to mind with any of my animals/cats. I love his language. It's the most unique and pushy I have ever heard .....

I have a stray that is kind of bratty and a shelter rescue that is a prima donna.
