Remember the cats that don’t care about their owner’s personal space? Who could have thought there’s more of them! I’m kidding, of course. Sitting in the toilet and staring at you trying to take a poop or climbing onto your face in the middle of your nap is what felines specialize in.
Bored Panda compiled a new list of hilarious photos to reaffirm you that cats are absolutely nonchalant when it comes to violating our privacy, so if you’re thinking of getting one… do it. They’re awesome.
The First Day I Got My Kitten, I Took A Bath, She Somehow Managed To Hop The Tub And Take A Snooze On My Shoulder
Months later she still likes to snooze in the tub… Can’t get a moment alone… and I thought cats hated water.
However, don’t take these photos as evidence that cats can’t grasp the concept of personal space. On the contrary, like most animals and people, they’re surrounded by this invisible bubble, too.
Amy Shojai, certified animal behavior consultant for cats and dogs, and award-winning author, said that every cat is an individual, and “just like people, attitude may vary from day to day,” adding that in feral cat populations, the normal territorial range might be more than two miles. “So when we truncate the cat’s territory by confining them to a house or apartment, many cats get their tails in a twist.”

A cat’s tolerance regarding personal space, according to Amy, also has to do with how confident or insecure the animal is.
“Age influences c’attitude,” the expert said. “And so does the weather. Cloudy [and cold days] seem to prompt some cats to be more accepting of sharing beds — maybe for the warmth.”

Experts at Animal Behavior Associates said that cats have a bigger personal space than dogs of the same size because they are more solitary species.
When someone invades their personal space, their response depends on the situation and the relationship between the individuals. “Some of the fightings that occur between cats living together seem to be caused by invasions of personal space rather than dominance issues, possessiveness, or even territoriality. Many, but not all, cats are tolerant of other cats if the others don’t come too close.”
So there you have it, folks. Cats know the value of privacy. They just choose to be jerks!
