Think You Have “Pet” Peeves? We Cats Are Even Peevier Than You!
I always thought that the human term “pet peeves” was kind of rude. It sort of implies that their pets annoy them, and we all know it’s more likely to be the other way around. To prove this, I went to the cat community on Twitter and asked them “What are your human peeves?” I got a flood of answers (in fact, some cats needed more than Twitter’s 140 characters or had several peeves), and I’ve reposted them below.*
My human peeve is having mai ears cleaned….hate it! Don’t touch mai ears!
I really hate it when my humans close doors! Any doors! (Except when @ThatStripeyCat is on the other side.)
my pet peeve is when I have to wait to eat
being picked up. Being forced to swallow medicine.
Wow, where do I begin… Being late with dinner, being picked up for longer than 30 seconds, not having clean blankies…
cont’d. not having a clean litter box, not having the heater blowing my way
my human peeve: he often plays computer games after work and not with me. Sitting on his laptop gets the point across…
plays with the computer and not me after work
When humans insist on vacuuming when I want to sleep. They know it makes me get up and move to another room. No consideration.
I don’t like it when I’m all cozy next to Mom and THEN SHE MOVES. Mom, that is NOT cool. I was comfy.
Pet Peeves – I don’t like it when the staff puts lotion on their hands and then pet me. Yech. It takes hours of fur laundry.
human peeve: whai dooz daddy alwais goota beez puttin dropz in mai eyez??? I like the boogz just faine!
human peeve: howz come when iz get my nailz nizan sharp m&d gots to go and cutz them????? they callz them “needles”. pashewww
My human M likes to pick me up and put human smooches on me. Brrrrrrr!
My big peeve is the apartment buzzer when they forget to tell me they are expecting company….LOUD HURTFUL SCARY
my pet peeves are when my humans try to make me sit on a lap or a chair when i dont want to, little kids, loud noises and …
when mummy sings & it awful but when we sing she tells us it a bad noise! how that work??
My human peeve is when Mama returns my efforts to courteously awaken her (with my claws) by pushing me off the bed!
im Missy when my human doesn’t give me her leftovers but just throws them away!! its such a waste and so rude!
my mum cradles me and makes kissy noises. I am a MANCAT!
How bout when mom picks the pen I’m playin with on the floor & puts it away. She should wait till I’m done, then put it away…
My p-peeve: When ur biting ur human & she starts petting U so good, that U forget what ur doing & stop biting her. Its just wrong!
Dirty litter boxz. It should be cleaned after EVERY use. If SHE didnt find my last gift Y should I put another in the same place
How about when SHE stays up late & then moves you from ur resting spot in the center of the bed late @ night. Hello… Dibs!!
I hate it when SHE puts down a dish of food 4 me & then leaves the room. I then have to pick it up with my teeth & carry it (P1)…
(P2) to wherever she went off too. I prefer not to eat alone.
mine is that I think I should get to eat when I want and what I want, why do they all eat dinner without giving me some of it?
mai peev iz i shud be aybul to go warevur i wanna go. cownturz an cubberdz an owtsyd shud be mai playegrownz!
human peeve – she’s always pouring oil down my ears!!!
human peeve – she’s obsessed with my butt!
Human Peeve: When Mom won’t let me thoroughly inspect the food she’s eating by letting me sniff closely and put my paw in it.
My hooman peeve iz when they takes all mai fur off their clothes. Hao will othur cats know they haz mai protekshun wifout furs?
We get annoyed when Meowy or the girl are eating something INTERESTING & won’t share.
I hope I’m not too late! I really hate it when Mama closes the basement door when I’m still down there! >^..^<
* Note: I’m not going to translate any of the LOL catspeak tweets for you. Frankly, some of these cats have such thick LOL accents, even I have a problem understanding what they’re trying to say.
