As many of us have discovered, today was day of Cat World Domination.
How might we peacefully co-exist with our cat overlords?
- Reward good behaviour. Positively reinforce desired behaviors with praise, treats, and cuddles. Build their trust.
- Play and enrichment. Tire them out with wand toys so they won’thave the energy to plot further takeovers. Do not use hands or fingers as toys.
- Deweaponize. Trim those claws every 2-3 weeks. Short nails are much less effective in human-cat battles than long, sharp claws.
- Pet your cat. Some cat overlords prefer only hands-off interactions with their people, and that is ok.
- Comb regularly. Combing loose fur off of your cat overlord will decrease their ability to form projectile vomit. Combing can also remove small mats before they combine into big mats. Matted fur is painful, and you do not want an unhappy cat overlord.
