My cats have things they do the same time every day regardless of the weather or time of year. One example is my cat Precious perfers to spend the entire day in the bedroom, usually from six in the morning until seven at night. Regardless of the weather, Precious will "ask" to get in or out of the bedroom at thease exact times. No matter what I'm doing if I go anywhere near the counter where the cat food is stored. My cat Chinnia likes to meow and just "has" to be in front of the food bowl as if asking to be fed (even if the bowl is full) Do your cats have habits like this?

Moomin will always tell me it's time to go to bed. Between 11pm and midnight every night, without fail, he will meow and pat at my legs, saying *Mum, it's bedtime* and as soon as I get into bed he's up and onto the end of the bed to settle down for the night. You can see my lovely Moomin, he was chosen to be the photo for the *cats* sction here and I am truly flattered :-D

Cats are strange sometimes. One of them may be plotting world domination. I'd be wary if I were you.

I don't think cats are like that. I love them and they have their retuines that's for sure, but world domination don't you think you're going a bit overboard with that? Are you not a cat person or something? Or can you back up your statment?

Cats are definitely strange. My cat used to trip my dad if he didn't feed her fancy feast, but ever since he moved in with his fiance she'll eat anything. I guess if she doesn't his fiance's cat will.

Hate cats? It's funny that you would make such an assumption after reading my original comment.cats tend to have their own little quirks. It's like they are tiny, fur covered humans with tails, who speak a primitive language(Kinda like domesticated spider monkeys, with the frame the size of a lemur.) I wish lemurs were domesticated. A member of my immediate family had a cat who was extremely moody, didn't like my older brother at all(which means we were on the same wavelength for the most part), and tolerated everyone within leering distance, only when it was feeding time. When people act like that, you reserve the right to call them out as being users. If a feline can take on those characteristics, what makes you think they wouldn't be able to take over the world. It started already with the lolcats meme. All I'm saying is, phase two could emanate from under your bed.

when i had cats for many years, yes, they were very set in their ways. stubborn little things. they did what they wanted whether you liked it or not. but they are such smart and wonderful creatures you just cant hold it against themnow i have my little coconut girl dog and she likes routine things to, but will conform to my way much easier then my cats did. i do miss having kitties tho.

Yes, we have two cats and they both have heir little routine. They sleep on the same bed in the same bedroom most of the day. They sleep close to each other but they never cuddle. After dinner they go into the separate bedrooms of their favorite human family member. My cat is Humphrey (the cat in my avatar) and he always comes with me at night. However, they both leave their bedrooms sometime in the middle of the night and go downstairs for an hour or so and run around and play. When they get tired they both return to their favorite person's bedroom. I've caught them at this little social hour more than once.
