Cat Paw is all about fun, so I thought I’d share these four embarrassing cat stories in honor of National Cat Day. If you have a cat, I’m guessing you may relate to some of these. Please share your best cat stories in the comments!
Michael Cervin and his cat Jasper
Michael Cervin said his 1-year-old cat Jasper has a bit of an embarrassing habit.
“Jasper will occasionally jump on the bed, you know, when my wife and I are using the bed for sex,” he said. “Not embarrassing for him I don’t think, but frankly no one wants a cat, or dog for that matter, to stare at you.”
He did find a solution to the problem, though.
“The louder we get, the less time he stays on the bed.”

Kim Pezza and her kitten Poe
Kim Pezza recently adopted a kitten named Poe, who is about 4 months old. She calls him a very cute, black tortie with one embarrassing trait:
“For such a little package, he is a big gas tank,” she said. “When someone picks him up, they have a 50/50 chance of extra aromatics accompanying him.”
So far, Poe has not shown any health problems or worms, Pezza said. This has everyone stumped.
“And does he stink when it does happen!” she said. “I’m about ready to hand apology cards out at the door as people come in, and put a warning sign on my little guy!”
Linda D. and her cat Olive
Linda D. and two of her friends used to rent an apartment from a “very sweet, almost innocent, Christian, old man, about 75.”
“When he finished, he left really quickly, almost rudely, which was not at all like him,” she said. “We got a letter the next day asking us to move. We were shocked and confused until I looked behind the fridge.”
There, her cat Olive had been gathering used condoms out of the garbage – “for a long time” – and “there was a ton of them back there.”
“The landlord must have thought we were insane!” she said. “We moved out quietly.”
Joy Schneider and her cat Bert
Joy Schneider refers to her cat Bert as a menace.
“Every day he is into something new and causing trouble,” she said. “He eats his own cat toys, steals from the dogs, jumps on the table during meals, just food obsessed.”

When Bert is not chewing stuff up or eating, he is trying to escape into “the great outdoors.”
Last May after Schneider returned from a pet-blogging conference, she said she left her “swag bag” filled with dog treats and other goodies on the floor.
“Within fifteen minutes, Bert had chewed a good-sized hole in the bag and was working at getting treats out of it,” she said. Her dog Emma let Bert know it was not his, but he did not care.
“He would die before giving up anything edible!”
She said she also left a big, femur bone wrapped in plastic on the counter, which Bert “managed to carry to the floor and rip open.”
He also found a dog-training treat/product called a Lickety Stik, carried it around and bit holes in it “leaving stain droppings all over the carpet.”
