If you've been considering a career change, now's a great time to consider becoming a cat. That's because Lisa Swerling and Ralph Lazar, the creative artists behind Last Lemon, have created a simple and funny guide full of cute drawings for 'How To Be A Cat!'

The two calls these cat drawings the Internet's first “user-driven guide,” since they've been taking drawing ideas from their followers. The general gist of cat logic seems to be that you must strike a fine balance between apathy, neediness, and infuriating obstructiveness. If so, it would seem that my adorable cat is an expert.

Be sure to visit Swerling and Lazar's site, Last Lemon – they've got more funny drawings from this and other cool ongoing projects as well!

Our cat did just that, leaving no evidence whatever. She was only discovered when my mother decided to check the case for something she'd mislaid.

I've got FIVE cats & they ALL do it. One of them has trained me to feed her at her favourite window seat where she will then ask for the menu & then the wine list before deciding on a nice little Catarratto Chardonnay. On a sunny day she will refuse the table at the window & insist on eating her meal al fresco (on the wall...)

My cat always tries to eat my food as if he were a dog. I never give him human food, but he likes to grab all kinds of vegetables. Since the moment I got a cat I haven't been able to eat in peace, because it's war

I woke up one morning to the sensation of my cat chewing my hair. Upon realising I was awake, Button began tapping my face repetitively. Once she was bored of that, she stood up on my stomach, turned around and farted at me.

Mine prefer to "help" make up the bed by continually jumping up on it while I'm putting on the fitted sheet, top sheet, blanket, etc., then yowling like I'm beating them within an inch of their lives when I pick them up and put them in the floor. Of course as soon as I'm done with the bed, they are no longer interested in it or in me ...

Or just sit on it, if possible, or get between human and book. Nothing is more important than looking at you!

With the paw also. Then lick your paw to taste. Then again with your paw. Your human will appreciate your dedication.

If it was only under the sofa it would be easy. But they like to kick all the toys, small objects, even food under the big furniture parts, which are extremely hard to move.. :(

My toddler used to tell this story about the "ghost" in his bedroom. It would come out at night to cuddle him. Then I discovered the white cat was hiding in his room until he fell asleep and going to lie down with him.

Always! Then kick them under the sofa or any other big furniture piece. Take some in the middle of the bed too.

I know it's not probable that all domesticated house cats stay indoors and I also know that in rural areas they love being outside but I agree with Elena to an extent that in cities and densely populated areas cats should stay inside. My neighborhood just has so many cats wandering around outside whose owners don't bring them in EVER no matter if it's snowing raining or 10 below. I know not everyone is like that but personally if you live in a city I think your cat should be indoors or at least monitored while outside.

Very recognizable, my girlfriends 2 catladies did this several times, first with Whiskas, then with Royal Canin, cost me a small fortune 🙄. Hopefully they like Gourmet for the rest of their lives 😄.
