Cats have a reputation when it comes to protecting their personal space and there’s not a thing we can do about it.
“Cats definitely value their own personal space,” explains Natalie Cady Bishop of Cat Behavior Solved. “If it is ‘invaded’ they may even resort to swatting or biting you! They prefer interactions to be on their terms.”
So when it’s time for them to respect the private space of others, you would think they would have at least a small amount of understanding, but no, they just don’t care.
They particularly like to invade your space when it’s time to have a bath or shower, or when you’re on the toilet! For some reason our cats are fascinated by what goes on in the bathroom and they just don’t understand that sometimes we really just want to be alone.
From staring at you in the bath to climbing into the shower with you, these pictures prove that when your cats crave attention they have no qualms about invading your personal space to get it. Because you liked part 1 so much, we thought it was time for more. So sit back and enjoy this latest collection of cats totally disrespecting people’s personal space and remember to close the door next time you head to the bathroom!
