50 Cat Parents Shared What It’s Like To Be Devoid Of Personal Space When Living With A Cat

50 Cat Parents Shared What It’s Like To Be Devoid Of Personal Space When Living With A Cat

Sharing is caring!

There are some people who feel like their cats don’t care about them. Some even claim that they’re only there to serve their cats and to be honest, I’ve felt like this occasionally too!

However, this just isn’t true. We do serve our cats, but they do appreciate it. And they do it far more than we think. All cats are affectionate, and some might even be a bit too affectionate. 

I know my cats love me because, similar to the ones in these photos, they are always with me. Cats are hilarious, and their lack of understanding of personal space never fails to make me laugh.

However, trading in your personal space for a pet cat is the best swap you’ll ever make!
