30 Things We Say To Cats…And Kids!

Some people say cats are their kids, and I’ve written in the past about the similarity between the two. We thought it would be fun to look at the things we say to our cats that also apply to human kids (or would if we had them).

I must admit we did a bit of crowd sourcing and got some of these suggestions from our Facebook Page. Enjoy!

1. Aunt Deb is visiting and bringing you snacks/treats/a surprise.

2. Who’s the cutest in the world?

3. Who made this mess?
WHO made this mess?

4. Why are you whining? I have cuddled you, fed you, entertained you, brushed you. You have nothing to complain about.

5. Who loves Mommy?

6. Leave your sister alone.

6. Don’t whack/bite/hit your brother.

Siblings Fighting

7. Where did you get that?

8. What’s that noise?

9. No I don’t want to see your bottom!

10. Go back to sleep, it’s too early.

21. Finish your dinner or you’ll be hungry later!

23. Stop whining!

28. Go to sleep

29.  No, it’s not time to eat yet.

30. Stop it!


31. No you can’t have that. Because I say so. Because I’m your Mother.

    These are so funny and so true! LOVE the illustrative photos (especially “What’s in your mouth? Spit it out!”). The only once I can add is “Ouch! Your nails need a trim.” I can totally relate to “Leave your brother (sister) alone!” You hear me, Kipper?!!!

    • yes! that’s a good one! Thanks! =^^=

    These are adorable!! I would add “Go ask your father, (or mother)” whatever the case might be!!! and….”you are going to have a time out”, “go poop!!!”, “what do you mean you won’t eat that, there are starving kitties all over the world”, “give me a kiss”, because I have a cat AND a dog, if I am mad at my dog, I say to Cody “YOU are my FAVORITE child” catchatwithcarenandcody

    • OMG a CLASSIC – go ask your dad/mom! ha!
