8 Things Humans Do That Cats Hate

Cats are generally fairly placid pets, easy going, affectionate, entertaining and simple to care for. However, there are some things that you may do (or not do) that can really tick them off. Some things just really don’t make your cat very happy, and it is likely that you want to avoid these things with your feline companion.


Belly rubs

Dogs usually love belly rubs. Cats, well, not so much. Your cat is a hunter, a predator, and exposing his sensitive underbelly goes completely against his protective nature. His belly is where he is least protected. So, if you are attempting to rub your kitty’s belly, you are likely to get a strong reaction, on that involves paws and claws. It is complete instinct for your cat, so don’t be offended.

Riding in vehicles

First of all, most cats get motion sick very easily according to Livescience, so car rides are unlikely to be a favorite for your feline companion. Plus, with their love of routine and consistency, the car ride is a huge change and not likely to make the cat happy at all.
