The Snowshoe cat is a “people kitty.” These cats relish attention and often like to take charge of a situation. Not sure what you want to do today? Don’t worry about it; your Snowshoe already has it all figured out. This cat breed enjoys being the boss of a household, leading their owners to something of kitty interest. Before you know it, your Snowshoe is telling you what to do instead of the other way around – leaving you to wonder: Do I own this cat, or does he own me?

To be sure of the answer, here are nine telltale signs your affectionate Snowshoe cat is the owner of you.

1. They lead you to a guitar and demand to be serenaded.
