As much as we love our furry little felines, there is absolutely no question that they are much more clever and cunning than they let on. I firmly believe that they are, in fact, preparing now to take over and rule the world. I can’t say when it will happen...but just know - it WILL happen. I have provided proof! Read on to find out what your fur baby is plotting (& don’t forget to check out the giveaway at the end, because god knows we all need to keep on their good side)...
Want to sit down and relax on the couch after a long day of work? Don’t count on it. Taking our seats is just practice for taking over the world. They’re starting small, trust me.
2. No one can win a stare-off competition against a cat.
Try it - I dare you. You’ll either be there until the end of time, or spontaneously combust. There’s a hilarious video here about big tough guys trying to have staring competitions with cats - spoiler alert - the guys fail miserably.
3. No matter how good the reward, they will ALWAYS do whatever it is THEY want to do.
4. And then when they’re annoyed, they are the masters of passive aggressive behaviour.
5. Cats are totally down with technology.
This is where things start to get a little freaky. In today’s digital age, it’s 100% necessary to be technology savvy. Cats are starting to get the hang of things far more quickly than I’m comfortable with.
6. We are definitely, without a doubt, outnumbered.
Okay - so speaking locally, studies suggest that there are approximately 1.4 million pet cats in NZ, 196 strays...and 14 million feral cats. Our human population in NZ? 4.5 million. Gulp. Scared yet?
7. Cat cafes are on the rise, and it’s starting to get a little too close to home...
Cat cafes have been around since 1998, with the first one opening in Taiwan. Japan went nuts over the concept, with approximately 58 cat cafes in Tokyo alone. We now have several in Auckland…and they're only going to increase in popularity - I know it! What’s next? Cat nightclubs? Cat mini golf courses? I don’t know, but I do know it’s a takeover.
8. Not only are they starting to impersonate us, they openly mock us via memes..
So there you have it - just SOME of the reasons why I think that cats will rule the world one day. I’m not sure if we’ll be around when it happens - but just in case - keep your cat happy by entering this giveaway.
