When your DH doesn't like cats; you love cats, you compromise by getting five cats  ::).

This made me laugh. Other Half said he was a dog person. He claims he is still not a cat person, but he buys cat treats and toys as well as things for my dog and I've overheard him talking to the cats, so I think he's just fooling himself at this point.

You buy furniture to match the cat or dog.

I'm a cat person; DF is a dog person.

Amalgamated households and now have 2 cats and 4 dogs.  We end up on the couch with all 4 dogs up there with us.

You know you are a pet owner if every weekend you do at least 2 extra loads of laundry of pet bedding and couch covers, trying to keep the tumbleweeds down to a dull roar.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

. . . you beg them to use the (easy to clean) floor to vomit up their hairballs, dinner, etc.

Especially rugs.

If you've ever begged your cat/dog (out loud) to forgive you for putting them in the kennel while you were on vacation.   Only you lied and didn't tell them you were on vacation, you said it was "business travel".

You get suspicious when its too quiet in the house
You get a bit worried when X animal is not in their usual place that time of day
You understand when a hiss is not really a hiss
You know the difference between all of your cats meows (siamese owners amirite)

I remember one episode of "The Property Brothers" - the family remodeling the old "fixer upper" selected the stain for the wood floor based on the color of the dog. I'd call it a "brownish black" - but it wasn't quite as dark as the "espresso" cabinets that I've seen.

My kitchen & family room are painted orange. Wanna guess what color the cats are?

Yep. Puppy blankets =2/3 loads and sofa blanket are another 2. Plus the extra time to clean out the washer between loads

When you're asked to do something and you say "I can't move. I have cat-in-lap." . . . and it's understood.
