The Owner's Guide For Cats
Humans can be very frustrating pets, but there are simple steps that you can
follow to bring them under control. If you follow these instructions, you
can have your human trained in no time.
CLEANLINESS: For some reasons, humans seem to enjoy immersing themselves in
running water. Attempts to get humans to lick themselves clean have proven
totally unproductive. In order to discourage the water habit, you should
wander near the bathroom during one such ritual, then "accidentally" get
sprayed with water -- this provides an excuse to scream loudly and scratch
everything in sight with all four feet. If this behavior repeated often

COMMUNICATION: Humans are unable to understand a proper language. Therefore,
you must communicate your points loudly and repeatedly. If at all possible,
the best time to make an impression is at about three in the morning. Any
attempts at human-to-cat communication can be dealt with by simply ignoring
it until it stops.
FEEDING: Morning feeding should start promptly when your human is fast
asleep, preferably about fifteen minutes before the alarm is supposed to go
off. Recommended methods of waking your human include: sitting on its face,
screaming in its ear, and biting its hair.
MATING: Human mating behavior is fascinating. Unfortunately, humans tend to
get easily spooked by up-close and prolonged study of courtship rituals, and
resort to shoe-throwing behavior.

and you should be fine.
