We know you love kitten face. But cat ownership has its downfalls — one minute you're getting soft snuggles from your feline friend, and the next you're being rudely ignored. Always remember one thing, though: If you had a dog, you'd be picking up piles of warm, soft poop with a grocery bag. So yeah, that crazy cat is the way to go. You should thank her every day.

High: Watching your precious kitten sleep, whether she's all balled up or completely stretched out.

Low: Never getting to sleep in because someone in hungry.
