You know that thing where you do your laundry and then you get it out of the dryer and tell yourself, "Oh, I'll fold it and put it away later," but then a cat jumps in the basket, shedding fur all over it, and you're kinda upset but mostly you're like, "Awww, that's so cute?"
If the cat were awake right now, I'd be confused and a little frightened. If I manage to sneak four hours of rest in tonight, I'll be ecstatic (part of this is because I have too much to do and part of this is because I'm a mild insomniac).

There's a reason people don't mess with cats.
4. Sleep on expensive electronic equipment

When someone hands me a laptop, they expect me to get to work. For a cat, sleeping is a job and a laptop is just a really solid electric blanket.
5. Be adorable -- no matter what

My cuteness is conditional, and those conditions are not often met. When I've had a full night of darting in out of bedroom doors, I look like hell the next day. When a cat does it, she still wakes up looking squee-worthy.
