Cats are creatures of habit. The territorial felines absolutely live for routine, which anyone whose cat treads on their face at the same time every morning to wake them up can attest to.
In fact, cats love routine so much that they can become stressed out even to the point of getting physically ill if their schedule changes, one Ohio State University study found, according to Conscious Cat.
So it should come as no surprise to proud cat owners to see their pets fall into certain habits and have strong preferences for repetition, however quirky. For example, some cats enjoy hilarious yet annoying destructive behaviors that they'll do throughout their entire lives, no matter how much you try to dissuade them.
Others love odd lounging spots, even after they've outgrown them.
Check out these sweet yet hilarious photos of cats growing up in their favorite spots.
