Do cats like being chased?

I’m going to be blunt here. Do you know anything about cats? Because I really can’t seem to find a site that tells me how they feel about all of the above, so please do tell.

In the last week or so, I’ve had a few conversations with friends and a couple of my cat-owning family members and I’m trying to sort out whether or not they’re “normal” or “abnormal” for their reactions.

When I say that they were “concerned” about all of the above, I mean that they didn’t like it. They didn’t seem to like that they didn’t like it. And the more they didn’t like it, the more concerned they became.

At the same time, though, they didn’t like me calling the cats “brutes” and “monsters” because they couldn’t stop running. They didn’t like it when I told them that the cats were chasing them around the house, which they thought was a form of mental torture. (They’d been very, very quiet all of a sudden and they were concerned for my sanity, they were very clear about this.) They didn’t like it when I told them that I wouldn’t feed them, because they needed the food. They were also very concerned for my mental health, even though they know I’m not crazy. They didn’t like me being locked up. They didn’t like being locked up, especially when the cats were trying to get into my room through the door (which had been left open to try and get them to come up). They didn’t like me trying to close the door and not being able to because the cats were hanging onto it, even though they knew I wouldn’t hurt them.

They also didn’t like when I told them they were going to have to deal with the cats for the next week or so and they didn’t like the cats. They especially didn’t like it when I said they were going to have to learn how to be friends with the cats. They didn’t like the cats, they didn’t like me being locked up and they didn’t like the cats being locked up.

I thought about doing a cat-owning family member’s website on the subject because I’m not at all sure how to describe what’s happening to us. What’s worse, it seems to me that the person we’re speaking to, who is very concerned about the cats’ well-being, can’t really explain their own behaviour.

There’s also the little issue of my parents not really getting why their kids don’t like the cats. I’m pretty sure they can’t fathom it and I can’t really explain it to them either, except to say that “the cats are scary and they don’t really want to be around them.”

So here’s my question. Are cats supposed to not like cats? What can I tell my parents that will make them understand?

Oh boy. It would make the cat-owning folks around here look like they were just plain crazy, if they found out.

I’m also curious if there is a website about how cat owners act and react to their cats. I did find one that talks about how cats and their owners deal with separation anxiety (see: I’ve got you, kitty). But that’s only because it was the first link that came up when I Googled “cats,” and I don’t think it really goes anywhere into how people feel about their cats.

And before anyone accuses me of bias, this is not about me. It’s about how cat-owning folks are expected to act around the cats, and they’re not acting like cats.

As a cat owner who can’t seem to get the cats to stop running and has to put them in the cat carrier to walk to the vet, it seems to me that it’s not abnormal to be concerned about your own mental health. The cats are chasing you around the house and that’s clearly a stressor for you.

You can say, “it’s ok, they’re not going to hurt you” but to someone who is terrified of the cats, it sounds like a threat.

That’s exactly what I said, in fact. To the owner of the cats, that’s a threat. To me, it’s what I expected of them and it’s what they’ve got me expecting, so that’s the kind of “threat” that it is.

I can understand why you have to keep the cats in the carrier when you go to the vet. I did that too, because I don’t think it’s good for them to be out in the cold, and because it takes them a while to settle down and I don’t want to have to leave them in the carrier while I’m out. The vet seemed to think that I was overreacting and told me that the cats don’t like being put in the carrier
