I know that cats are independent, active little creatures. They seem to think that if they want to eat something, then it is food. While this may be true sometimes, most of the time it is because they are hungry. Sometimes, they just want a drink of water or something to sit on. If you want to stop your pet from being on the run and roaming around your house, then you need to get them a nice place to eat and play when they are let out.
