The reality of living with cats is not what you would really expect it to be if you've never had one before. Cats are… special. They want what hey want, and they will do whatever needs to be done to get it. The reality of living with cats means cats' unexpected bursts of energy at 3am, it means your cats always sitting on your fresh laundry and filling it with fur. It means your cats attempting to steal food right off your plate right in front of your face.
And it means being woken up in the morning for food - consistently and insistently. They will wake you up no matter what. Cats will sit on your face, they will paw at your blanket, they will scream their adorable little heads off, and they will still - yes, they will - have us so whipped for them, we end up 'aww'ing as we give them the food they demanded.
