A cat is on his head. Via Inquisitr
No, seriously. Especially in winter, having your cat take up residence on your head at night can be a problem in hyperheated, poorly ventilated Brooklyn apartments. So simply closing the bedroom door to shut out the cat can inhibit air circulation, causing many a Brooklyn apartment to become overheated. Not good.
Other approaches you might try:
- If asthetics are not an issue, install a mesh wire door on your bedroom. Advantages: Keeps cats out. Lets air circulate. Disadvantages: Makes potential sexual partners fearful. Landlord unlikely to pay for.
- Keep a spray bottle of water next to the bed. Give them a quick squirt. Which is worse, cat-head or a damp face? With a spray bottle nearby, the cat’s Pavlov reflex develops quickly – just pick up the bottle and their scamper stops, right quick.
- Make surfaces uncomfortable to sit on. Use foil, bubble wrap, or those knobby floor mats. If it’s a texture that feels weird or bad to them, they won’t go where you put it. Unless they just evolve and learn to jump over it. But then, you could train them to jump hurdles, and then you’re ready for the circus. PROFIT.
- If all else fails… Give up. The cats are your masters.
