Visiting a house with cats might not seem like a big deal unless you have allergies. Cats are small, after all, and they are not nearly as intimidating or attention-demanding as dogs are, so there really isn't anything you need to worry about, right?
Wrong. Visiting a house with cats is full of unforeseen hazards. Here is what you need to know before you set a foot through that front door.
Including your yoga routine.
Your host's cats will always be center stage, no matter how funny, important or emotionally moving your story is.

Grabbing a drink is always risky.
Once you get a drink, never leave it unattended.
Never leave your food unattended either.

Look twice before you sit down.
Wear protective shoes at all times to prevent against unwarranted cat attacks.

You never know what will be waiting for you in the shower.
You will see things you don't understand. Just laugh and move on.
