Life Hacks for Cats

Catshmere Cat Blog Cat Life Hacks You Tube Video

Hello Cats!

I came across this video on You Tube on Life Hacks for Cats and I must say I found it quite inspiring.

Basically it explains how to make you Cat Life even easier, in five simple steps:

  1. Learn to open doors
  2. Get a clean litter box by not cleaning
  3. Wake the Human to feed you
  4. Sleep better after a safety-check
  5. Be cute to get away with anything


Personally speaking, I find point 2, 3 and 5 very useful.

I’d like to add my own piece to advice to the list: to grab the Human’s attention you can use point 2 to your advantage. Whether you’re hungry, want cuddles or you just want to annoy your Human, keep on scratching. Apparently, the resulting sound is terribly annoying for Humans. If you keep on going, they’ll eventually come and see what’s going on and there you go, well done Cat!

For instance, I like my sand to be always nice and clean and after going to the litter box I enjoy a light snack. This because I hate having an empty tummy and my tummy gets terribly empty after I use the litter box …

During the day it’s not a problem, but at night my Humans are fast asleep and no way they’ll get up to clean my mess and feed me. So, I noticed that if I do a lot of scratching, they eventually wake up and do what they are supposed to do: clean my litter box and give me gnammy food.

Yes, they do a lot of swearing and call me all types of dirty names but the important thing is that I get what I want, always! Smart right?

What other nasty tricks have you Cats come up with?

Tell me all about it and keep on purring! Meow …
