A TIMELINE OF LOCKING MY CAT IN MY ROOM WITH ME

Ah, forced affection. The best kind.
  1. This is Maggie
    Or, Maggie the Ferocious Beast.
  2. Maggie often runs into my bedroom
  3. I always ask her if she wants to leave
  4. She never responds
  5. I shut the door
  6. She jumps on my bed
  7. She pretends to love me for 12 seconds
  8. She jumps off the bed
  9. She scratches at the door
  10. I am forced to get off the bed to let her out while: reevaluating my life; wondering whether or not my cat loves me; wondering if any cat will ever love me; and wondering if Taylor Swift's cats treat her the same way.
