Don’t you just wish you could be your cat sometimes? All they have to do is look cute and you feed and shelter them. Then they have no concept of earning money, trying to learn new languages, buying plane tickets or mending fabric. Their version of doing paperwork is making sure to lie down right on top of your pile of documents when they see you are concentrating.
You put a new piece of furniture in your room and all they can think of is how nice the texture is when they rub their head against it.
You think of how much of their winter coat they are leaving everywhere.
