20+ Situations That Perfectly Show What Having a Cat Is Like

At first sight, it might seem that being a house cat is easy because all they need to do is sleep, eat, and agree to be stroked. However, these fluffies have way more to deal with than we think, like searching for a proper box, for example, which is no easy task. And making sure to spare enough time to analyze their life and ponder on their psychological condition is on the to-do list too.

We at Bright Side believe cat owners who claim that the daily schedule of their pets is more than just sleeping and eating. That’s why we’re eager to show you a series of photos that prove this to be true. And at the end of the article, there’s a bonus feature that reveals several stories about the unbelievable boldness of cats.
