If you’re a cat person, you know that cats are sensitive, independent creatures that deserve our respect. Just like any other living being, cats have feelings, and they can get hurt. So it’s important to be mindful of the things you say to them.

Here are 13 things you should never say to a cat:

1. “You’re not a good kitty.”

Cats are good at being cats. They don’t need to be good at anything else. Telling them they’re not good at being a cat can make them feel insecure and like they’re not good enough.

2. “I don’t like cats.”

Even if you don’t like cats, there’s no need to say it to one. It’s hurtful and unnecessary.

3. “You’re not cute.”

All cats are cute, even if they’re not traditionally attractive. Telling a cat they’re not cute is like telling a human they’re not attractive. It’s just mean.

4. “You’re not cuddly.”

Cats are cuddly when they want to be. Forcing them to cuddle when they don’t want to is not only uncomfortable for the cat, but it can also be dangerous.

5. “You’re not allowed on the furniture.”

Furniture is for everyone, including cats. Telling a cat they’re not allowed on the furniture is like telling a human they’re not allowed to sit on a chair. It’s just unfair.

6. “You’re not allowed to meow.”

Meowing is how cats communicate. It’s like telling a human they’re not allowed to speak.

7. “You’re not allowed to scratch.”

Scratching is a natural instinct for cats. It’s how they sharpen their claws and keep them clean. Telling a cat they’re not allowed to scratch is like telling a human they’re not allowed to wash their hands.

8. “You’re not allowed to poop.”

Pooping is a natural function of all animals, including cats. Telling a cat they’re not allowed to poop is like telling a human they’re not allowed to use the restroom. It’s just not realistic.

9. “You’re not allowed to vomit.”

Vomiting is a natural function of all animals, including cats. Telling a cat they’re not allowed to vomit is like telling a human they’re not allowed to sneeze. It’s just not realistic.

10. “You’re not allowed to have fleas.”

Fleas are a natural part of life for all animals, including cats. Telling a cat they’re not allowed to have fleas is like telling a human they’re not allowed to have dandruff. It’s just not realistic.

11. “You’re not allowed to shed.”

Shedding is a natural process for all animals, including cats. Telling a cat they’re not allowed to shed is like telling a human they’re not allowed to lose hair. It’s just not realistic.

12. “You’re not allowed to be lazy.”

Laziness is a natural part of life for all animals, including cats. Telling a cat they’re not allowed to be lazy is like telling a human they’re not allowed to take a nap. It’s just not realistic.

13. “You’re not allowed to be a cat.”

This is the most hurtful thing you could ever say to a cat. Telling a cat they’re not allowed to be a cat is like telling a human they’re not allowed to be a human. It’s just not fair.
