Things That Confuse Cats

Does your kitty often look at you with that smug, self-assured look on her face? Cats certainly are very proud of themselves! However, Fluffy isn’t necessarily as all-knowing as she would like us to think. In fact, there are some things that have our feline buddies completely stumped! Read on as a local London, ON vet lists some of the things that confuse our furry pals.

That Pesky Red Dot

Does your feline pal like chasing the dot from a laser pointer? Fluffy may never really figure out her elusive prey!

Car Rides

This is one area where Fluffy and Fido simply couldn’t disagree more. To Fido, a car ride is like a trip to amusement park: fun and exciting. Fluffy, on the other hand, thinks of moving vehicles as evil robots hurtling through space.


Speaking of dogs, they also don’t make a lot of sense to our feline friends. After all, Fido doesn’t use the litterbox, never bathes himself, gets ridiculously excited at the prospect of walks, and actually likes car rides.

The Concept of Privacy

Kitties can be rather nosy little furballs. Your curious pet may follow you around the house. She may even trail you into the bathroom!


It’s probably safe to say that visiting us isn’t your cat’s favorite pastime. First, there’s the dreaded car ride. Then, Fluffy will find herself in a strange environment, which is another pet peeve. Your furball may get more nervous about the smell and sound of other pets, who are just as nervous and sometimes sick. The exam itself is also a bit perplexing to our feline patients. (We do everything we can to make appointments easy for cats, but so far we haven’t been able to successfully explain things to them.) Of course, no matter what your furry friend’s opinion on the matter, she’ll be much healthier—and therefore happier—with regular veterinary care.


Cats are very clean, and spend time every day caring for their coats. While there are some kitties that don’t mind being bathed, the majority of them are not exactly happy about it. The water, the soap, the extra work of sorting one’s fur out … none of this makes any sense to Fluffy!

Please reach out to us, your London, ON vet clinic, for all your pet’s veterinary care needs. We are dedicated to providing great care!
