So... are your pets allowed on the furniture? My cat tends not to ask. If anything, my cat allows me on the furniture sometimes, since obviously, the bed belongs to her, and the couch belongs to her, and the table... you get it. In my naivety, during the first couple days that I had her, I tried to keep her off the bed for fear of crushing her itty bitty self, but she persisted, and she won, because of course she did.
And apparently, my cat is not the only one with such purrsuasive abilities. Twitter users have been sharing their own funny stories of (dis)allowing their pets on furniture, and we're both laughing because relatable and crying because relatable. Much as we want to keep our pets off our furniture, we're apparently all too weak for them.
