1. waltz in like you own the place, particularly if another cat lives there.

2. immediately steal food, preferably from other cat.

3. immediately score treats, preferably treats belonging to other cat.

4. leave your scent on everything, especially other cat’s favorite nooks, crannies and catnip-infused toys.

5. hiss at other cat. earn extra points if other cat hides on top of refrigerator for the rest of the night.

6. cuddle up to humans, favoring other cat’s owner.

7. challenge other cat to staring contest, while also blocking his direct route to food dish.

8.  look pretty while performing all of the above in hopes that no one suspects a thing.


I have some to add:

9. Pretend to hack up hairball on other cat’s owner’s pretty-pretty papasan chair.

10. When locked out of other cat’s owner’s room, proceed to wake owner’s roommate at 5.30 in the morning by jumping on her stomach and performing the tummy tapdance.

11. Attempt to turn new couch into personal scratching post. Ignore repeated screams of a word that sounds like “NOOOOOOO!”

12. Use roommate’s closet as daybed.

13. Go on “hunger strike” until other owner caves and gives you other cat’s dry food.
