Things cat owners know

During the summer of 2017, I went to the local Humane Society and adopted a cute black kitten and named him Sullivan. He drives me nuts quite often, but he also brings me so much joy. Being a cat mom is something I am proud to be.

Here are 16 reasons you know you're a crazy cat mom (featuring pictures of my adorable cat, Sullivan):

1. You have absolutely no privacy.

If your cat is anything like mine, your cat feels the need to be all up in your business. On the toilet? In the shower? Your cat will be watching you!

2. You have to cat-proof your home.

Cats enjoy getting into everything possible. My cat particularly likes getting into my kitchen cabinets, drawers, and refrigerator. I have literally had to buy child proof latches because my cat just won't stop!

3. Leave something out?  Your cat will get into it.

Your cat gets a kick out of doing this on purpose. Mine will look at me while knocking my vitamin containers off the counter. Sometimes he also has fun unraveling a whole roll of toilet paper just because he feels like it.

4. There's cat hair everywhere.

Vacuums are your best friend when you are a cat mom.

5. Your significant other and your cat battle for your attention.

You love both your cat and significant other..but if you give one of them too much attention, the other one will try to change that.

6. You always get woken up in the middle of the night.

Its 3am. You're asleep. All is peaceful. Then out of nowhere your cat decides to run all over the place and destroy everything in its path. Awesome.

7. Your cat is always hungry.

8. Your kitty gives you attitude.
