8 Things Humans Do that Cats Hate

Cats Hate Dirty Litter Boxes

Using a filthy toilet is disgusting whether it's in a public or private setting. Cats also dislike having their litter boxes unclean.

Cats Hate Feeling Lonely

It’s true that you can leave your cat alone for longer bouts than you could a dog, but kitties crave attention, companionship, and love just like any other furry friend—or human.

Cats Hate Spoiled Food

Not only does raw or spoiled food taste bad, but it can make your cat sick, too. Bacteria such as Salmonella and Staphylococcus can grow in food that’s been exposed for too long, especially in the warmer months.

Cats Hate Yucky Medicine

Whether your cat needs medication for a cold or infection or has a chronic condition that requires the ongoing administering of medication, it’s vital to make the experience a bit more palatable for kitty.

Cats Hate Loud Noises

From thunderstorms to arguments to fireworks, lots of loud noises and commotion can seriously stress your cat out.

Cats Hate Competition From Other Cats

Whether battling over food, space, toys or their humans’ attention, cats can become jealous of one another.

Cats Hate Overly Aggressive Petting

Cats can be extremely sensitive to tactile stimuli, so it’s important to be aware of where and how you’re petting them.

Cats hate car rides

Felines often hide under cars when they’re afraid, but most of them do not like car rides at all, and some cats are terrified by vehicles.
