7 Ways My Cat Is Just Like A Toddler & One Way They Differ

By Devan McGuinness |

My two cats have been my babies since I was 15 years old. I have known them and loved them before my husband and they were both around as we transitioned into parents and they have supported me through all of it. They are always there and never have any big surprised up their sleeve — I pretty much know their personalities and qualities as much as anyone can know their pets. Cat’s don’t really change.

It wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I noticed a surprising similarity between my cats and my children. Cats seem to be stuck in the ‘toddler stage’ of life — except with a lot more attitude and they closely resemble my youngest child — who is SO in that toddler stage. I never noticed it before, but I can see it all so clearly now. The similarities are actually pretty funny and I am sure they won’t ever grow out of it. I did notice one big way they differ though — and it’s a big one.

My Cat Thinks He's a Toddler

They Stare

My Toddler: When she is hungry she will ask for food, then stare at me until she gets it.

    This is sooooo true!
    Another similarity: Toys. My cat plays with the baby toys, and my baby plays with the cat toys
    Food: my cat eats crap off the floor. My baby eats stuff off the floor. (how is it possible that after I vacuum both still find stuff on the floor?!)
