I love cats. I had a cat when I was growing up who was incredibly chill and loved being a pet and didn’t knock stuff over or in general do jerky things. It kind of spoiled me, because the cats I’ve had since then have been more normal: Cats who demand attention at inconvenient times, who insist on sleeping with you, who have weird quirks (my current cat, Dexter, refuses to drink out of any bowl. He will only drink water out of a glass on our coffee table.) Cats generally are usually vocal, or feisty or energetic– and they often enjoy knocking stuff off tables, counters, or anything, really.

Check out some of her comics below, which so accurately describe life with cats.
This also happens at night in bed, or going from the floor to the back of the couch…your stomach is constantly a launch pad.
Having a cat (much like having a toddler) means never being in the bathroom alone again.
Sleeping kitty > your need to sit. There are other chairs in this house!
This is basically my fiance every time he works from home. He sends me pictures!
The belly is ALWAYS A TRAP! A tempting, fluffy, soft trap, but a trap nonetheless.
It’s not the same!
