About This Quiz

Many people own a cat for their cute face, fluffy fur and adorable personality traits. And what's not to love about cats anyway? Nevermind their scary glares, mischevious tactics to getting food or knocking cups and pencils off the table, because we all know that cats mean well on the inside. If you're shaking your head in disbelief right about now, then your cat is probably trying to take over your life!

It can be difficult to tell whether or not a cat is really trying to take control of one's life, as they can be very smart, sly and deceptive animals. One thing that you can do is reward your cat when they are behaving well. Give them some treats, pay them a few compliments or scratch the top of their head. On the flip side, if your cat is behaving badly, then you can discipline them in constructive ways. Place them in a quiet room, like a separate bedroom, as a timeout for 10 minutes or spray them with a little bit of water (using a water spray bottle). This will discourage bad behavior, which will allow you to regain control of your life again! So no matter who the leader of your household is, tell us more about your cat in this funny quiz!
