People Are Sharing Things Their Cats Accidentally Conditioned Them To Do
Our pets being so lovable and cute, difinitely find their way to condition us to do things for them, here are some cute, funny and heart warming moments.
“My cat sleeps under the blanket snuggled up to me. Even when Im at a hotel I instinctively raise the blanket a bit so he can crawl in. “
#2 ” My cat has 3 legs so he can’t bury his poop. I now follow him out when he poops to cover it for him or he gets very anxious. I’m not sure exactly when this started, but I’m officially a sh*t shoveler. “
#3 “I will stay in bed a extra hour or so every morning, doing work on my phone, purely so Gypsy can get in some prime snuggles.
When my alarm goes off, Gypsy comes running in and announces her pleasure of having an awake human to give her pets. We spend 10 minutes doling out lovies before she finds a spot to snuggle against me. Then I stay here. Don’t move. Don’t disturb the kitty.
She always looks disappointed on the days she doesn’t hear my alarm and I meet her in the livingroom instead.”
#4 “My cat has helped me with my ptsd. We had an armed home invasion a handful of years ago where they busted the door in and so whenever I hear loud banging, or noises in the house that I dont recognize, then it can make me go into a full on panic. Knowing my cat can hear way better than I can and will always go to the door is she hears someone outside of it, I’ve started looking at my cat to see if she is concerned about the sounds before my anxiety is ramped up too badly.
It has vastly improved my mental wellbeing.”
“Whenever my cat does something bad I hiss at her (not aggressively, just enough so she’ll understand not to scratch the couch, jump on the table, etc.) since she doesn’t understand the concept of no. We got a kitten about a month ago, so I’ve started to need to discipline him more often.Anyway my friend was annoying me the other day and out of pure habit I hissed at him. The people around me just turned in my direction and I felt like a psychopath lmao”
#6 “My wife just got out of the cat’s chair on our front porch after he strolled up and meowed. Crazy thing is, it’s not our cat. “
“Last summer my cat had seroius health problems, he had to spend some days in the animal hospital. My place was so empty without him and that was the time i realised basically i adjusted every aspect of my life to please/don’t scare/don’t hurt him.
I only open the windows to let fresh air in, if the cat is closed in a different room. I always watch where i step. I hurry home from work, so he won’t vomit on the carpet from stress and loneliness because he thinks i left him alone to starve to death. I always check the washing machine, the dishwasher, the oven before turning on. And so on, i’m checking literally everything and i do everything carefuly.
I really can’t imagine what will i do if he leaves me forever. I’m so used to his sweet fluffy presence : (“

#8 “I open the tinfoil as quietly as possible. My cat loves tin foil balls, and whenever he hears it he runs over and looks at it longingly (despite him having at least 24 tin foil balls already). You can’t call him with a treat bag or tin, he only comes for the foil. “
#9 “When I get up to go to the bathroom I stand in the door and wait for my elderly cat to come in before I close the door. He likes to keep me company. If he doesnt come in right away I’ll call for him and if still nothing I’ll start walking around the house looking for him “
#10 “Sleep with my legs a cat-length apart. She likes to sleep in between them. “
#11 “Shuffle my feet instead of walking when it’s dark so I don’t step on my small, black cat. “
#12 “Hide under a duvet within seconds of waking because I can already anticipate when my cat will come and insist I get up. “
