Did you know that June 24th is Cat World Domination Day? Of course, if you were to ask Fluffy, she would probably insist that every day is Cat World Domination Day. She wouldn’t be entirely wrong, either. Many of our feline pals have their humans firmly wrapped around their adorable little paws! What are these cuddly little furballs up to? Here, a Brandon, FL vet discusses kitty domination tactics.
We’re suspect that cats know full well that we have a hard time resisting their plaintive meows. Actually Fluffy may have started meowing specifically to boss us around. Kitties rarely ‘speak’ to one another: they use body language and facial expressions to communicate with one another.

Cats can sleep up to 20 hours a day, and may rotate from spot to spot for their morning, midmorning, noon, afternoon, and evening naps. (This will help your pet ensure that she’s evenly distributing her fur throughout your home.) Kitties certainly are adorable when they’re snoozing. They do this on purpose, so we’ll feel bad for moving them mid-nap. Many people stay in their chairs when their cats are on their laps, just to avoid disturbing them. Well played, Fluffy. Well played.
Though there have been no official studies, we guestimate that cat photos, memes, and videos take up about 65% of the worldwide web. People just can’t get enough of watching cute kitty videos! Is Fluffy slowly brainwashing us? Is that why she likes to sit and sleep on our laptops and keyboards? One has to wonder.
Settling down to read with a good book and a purring cat sounds very relaxing. In actuality, Fluffy isn’t always the best reading buddy. Kitties like to paw at our books and magazines, and sometimes use them as beds. They just hate it when we pay attention to anything other than them!
What if cats are plotting world domination? What are their plans? We suspect that Fluffy would demand catnip and cat grass be planted in every yard. Stocked fishponds would also probably be required on every corner. You may even be required to spend a certain amount of time every day playing with or cuddling your pet.
