Cats get an unfair rap; they really do. While dogs are busy stealing the limelight with their apparent easy-to-please nature and their desperation to be around you all the time, cats are over by the windowsill suffering from a misconstrued reputation that they are standoffish and hard to please.

The truth of the matter is, the reason your cat appears to be this way is actually all your fault. Is it too much to ask that you rub your cat's belly the right way, are up before 5 a.m. to feed it something other than dry food for once and actually say "thank you" when it's been slaving away all day to bring you that dead bird? No wonder your cat is judging you. You're just not meeting any of its very simple and reasonable needs.

And, in case you were wondering, yes, cats do play it cool when they've been gossiping about you and they see you coming, and yes, they always want that tuna treat. Obviously.
