These cats require plenty of me-time

Capricorn cats do like their alone time, so they may not be the best suited to a household that’s full of children and/or pets. If there are other beings that may tire them out, make sure there’s ample space for them to wander off on their own when they need to. They also like to show you they’re boss. They may do so by hanging out on high shelves and the top of furniture, as, for cats, being literally higher in altitude than the other members of the household means that they hold more power than everyone else. If you test their patience, they will remind you that they’re boss by testing yours in a much more annoying way. If they don’t get their way, they will disturb your sleep and even make a mess when you’re not there.
