Everyone who owns a cat will tell you that they have absolutely no consideration for personal space. Our feline friends like to be involved in just about everything, and it’s pretty much a guarantee that if there’s a closed door, they will spend hours trying to get into the room behind it. And while personal space invasion is nice sometimes (who doesn’t enjoy cuddles with a living, breathing hot water bottle?) cats seem to go out of their way to get up in your personal space at the most inconvenient times. So here we present to you, 50 hilarious pictures of cats who shamelessly disrespected their human’s personal space.
1. “The First Day I Got My Kitten, I Took A Bath, She Somehow Managed To Hop The Tub And Take A Snooze On My Shoulder”
“…Months later she still likes to snooze in the tub… Can’t get a moment alone… and I thought cats hated water.”
2. “My Cat Got In The Way While I Was Washing My Face Before Bed And I Got The Best Picture Of Her I’ve Ever Taken”
Cats seem to be determined to outsmart us in every way possible, so of course this little beauty had to come and admire herself in the mirror to make you feel 10 times less beautiful. Are we jealous? Maybe just a little bit.
3. “Every Time I Shower He Thinks I’m Suffering And Tries To Rescue Me”
This picture is actually pretty sweet. Cats are notorious for hating water, so we find it pretty adorable that despite being scared of the horrid water, this little guy still tries his best to save his dad! Who said cats don’t care about their owners?
4. “12 Years Together And He Still Fears For My Life Every Time I Take A Bath”
Continuing on with the theme, this brave little kitty is out to conquer the second scariest source of water known to a cat: the bath. If you’ve ever taken a bath in front of your cat, we’re pretty sure you’ll know how it feels to be judged by a silent ball of fluff as you lay in the lovely warm water. The cat is wondering why you would willingly submerge yourself into such a horrid substance, but their curiosity always comes before their fear.
5. “My Alien Crew Receiving A Transmission From The Mothership”
We’re pretty sure this picture has just given us an insight into what our lives will look like in 20 years’ time. This is what happens when you insist that each of your cats needs a feline friend… If we had a bigger house, the limits would be nonexistent.
6. “I’m Not Allowed To Have Alone Time”
We have to admit that we did a double-take when we first saw this picture because is that really a cat who has willingly got in the bath??? The closest our cat has got to bath time if dipping a tentative tail into the water- and that was enough to tell him to never do it again. Where did the owner find this cat?
7. “My GF Sent Me This While I Was On The Toilet”
Whatever kind of action is going on, cats always have to be a part of it- even when that action involves private bathroom matters. Despite most cats being so private themselves about using their litter trays, for them it’s still totally unacceptable to shut them out of the bathroom at any time. There’s nothing they haven’t seen at this point.
8. “Human, What Are You Doing In That Bathroom?”
Here we have another example of a cat who just wants to join their human in the bathroom. Why does it feel like your cat never actually wants to be around until you try to shut them out of somewhere? It’s like they have a sixth sense for it.
9. “My Cat Always Sits Like This When I’m In The Shower”
This cat has figured out something that most haven’t: if he sits like this at the top of the shower, then not only does he avoid the water, but he also gets a nice, relaxing steam bath out of it. This is officially the new generation of cat.
10. “My Cat Likes To Hunt Me When I Go To The Bathroom”
Life could get pretty boring being a cat, but luckily, these felines always know how to spice things up a bit: by hunting. And when you own an indoor cat, don’t think that you’ve got out of it! In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Instead of being brought various different birds and mice, you will officially become the prey.
11. “Been Sick In The Bathroom All Night And Butterfly Hasn’t Left My Side”
Show this post to all the people who preach that cats don’t care about their owners! When this adorable kitty’s owner fell ill, she spent the whole night by her side to make sure that she was okay. What a little angel.
12. “My Cats Reaction When I Come Out Of The Shower”
After seeing these two hype cats, we’re starting to think that we need a new cat- as when we get out of the shower, our cat just sits and stares judgingly as if to say, “I can see the result of all that ice cream you’ve been eating recently, Em.” Ah well, we wouldn’t change him for the world.
13. “Laser Cat”
What is it with cats and their obsession with sitting in some pretty gross places? To you, it’s a pair of boxer shorts, but to them, it’s a fun little hammock. At least the cat’s friend seems to be dissaproving of the situation.
14. “Every Morning When I Brush My Teeth”
Cats often like to lend a helping paw with the daily activities- but unfortunately, they often end up making the job a whole lot more difficult. To a cat, teeth brushing must be an interesting activity to them, in the same way that their grooming regime is to us. Each to their own, but we’d rather brush our teeth than lick ourselves clean, thanks.
15. “Let me in!!”
Each cat we’ve come across seems to have their own unique way of announcing their presence behind a closed door. Some will scratch, while others will meow pitifully- or in the case of this kitty, stick their paw underneath as a way of getting attention. This has to be one of the sweetest things a cat has done, and there’s no way we’d be able to leave our cat outside the door after that!
16. “My Cat Is Legitimately Concerned That I Am In The Bath”
Our cats much think we’ve totally lost our minds when we willingly decide to have a bath. Water is horribly wet, and why anyone would choose to submerge themselves in that is beyond strange, to a cat. But we’re meant to be completely non-judgemental of them when they lick their bums??
17. Professional Shower Supervisor
We love that this cat has his own little perch in the bathroom, and we equally love that his owner has kept the spot clear specially for him. Considering how nosy our cats are, we think that a cat perch should be a common feature of every bathroom.
18. “I’m Extremely Blessed To Have My Own Tiny Lifeguard. Except, Instead Of Using A Whistle Or Attempting To Save Me. He Screams At Me In Terror The Entire Time”
When this cat took up the role of being a lifeguard, we’re not entirely sure that he understood the job description. He’s definitely safety conscious when it comes to the water, but we think the screaming might be taking things just a little too far. Still, he’s definitely keeping alert and on the lookout for any dangers -so all in all he’s not the worst lifeguard in the world.
19. “This Is My Cat, Who Likes To Poke You When You’re In The Bath”
“She is slightly handicapped so can’t bring us mice like the other cats, so instead brings us leaves and meows until we acknowledge them.”
20. “After A Massive Panic Attack I Decided To Take A Bubble Bath. The Kitties Were Still Too Worried To Leave My Side”
Now this is the kind of personal space invasion that we all need! After seeing these cute photos of cats who are there for their owners in times of need, we reckon that cats would actually make great service animals. What caring little cuties!
21. My Cat Likes To Take Baths With Me
Every so often, there will be a cat who doesn’t check the boxes for your average cat- and this special little guy is one of them. Despite the fact that most cats hate water, this cutie will put up with it if it means that he can be close to his owner. Aww! Now that’s true love.
22. “Neighbour’s Cat Looking Through My Bathroom Window”
When you’re a cat person, it’s pretty common for other cats to be drawn towards you. So don’t be alarmed if it’s not just your own cats who demand your attention… Cats seem to be creepily aware of your feelings towards them.
23. “The Abyss Staring Back”
A cat will always get great enjoyment out of sitting in a spot that they’re not meant to sit in- and the more inconvenient it makes things for their owner, the better. We get the logic, but we’re just not sure that a man’s boxers is the best place to take a nap.
24. “What on earth are you doing?”
If you’re looking to take a nice, long, relaxed bath, don’t expect to be able to do so in peace. Cats are inquisitive by nature and love to check out what you’re up to- especially when you’re doing something totally weird in their eyes. Let’s just hope that he doesn’t slip and fall in!
25. “Our Cat Is Very Protective Of Our Newborn. She Does Not Approve Of Her Getting A Bath”
In a cat’s eyes, the bath is one of the worst places to be- so forgive her for worrying about her baby human brother. We think the expression of confused outrage on her face is absolutely adorable. She’s going to be a great big sister!
26. “I Was Crying In The Bathroom And He Demanded To Get Inside And Get In The Sink To Be With Me”
They say animals can sense people’s emotions better than us humans can, and we think this picture just goes to prove how emphatic cats can be! Her little face seems to be saying, “Tell me all of your problems, human. I’m here for you.”
27. “That Moment When You’re Trying To Take A Relaxing Bubble Bath, But Get The Distinct Feeling You’re Being Watched”
We don’t know why, but this picture makes us think that the cat is about to rat out her dog brother for doing something naughty. And the guilty expression on the dog’s face seems to confirm this! We need the whole back story.
28. “I Now Know I’m Not The Only One. He Goes From The Toilet To The Sink, Climbs On My Shoulders, And Perches On My Head”
They say that cats always like to be perched on the highest spot in the room- and nothing gets higher than the top of their human’s head. We bet he’s feeling like the King of the world up there!
29. “My Parents’ Cat Destroyed The Bathroom’s Door Vents So He Could Spy While We Pee”
This kitty might look like he’s an extra from The Shining, but he’s actually just concerned- after all, what if you were to pass out suddenly? Who’s going to feed the kitty then?
30. “This Is Cinnamon, She Likes To Make You Uncomfortable While You Use The Bathroom”
Cinnamon is one of the cutest things that we have ever seen in our life. She looks like one of the restroom staff who sells perfume and tampons. “Beautiful perfume for a beautiful lady?”
31. “My Sister’s Cat Follows Me Everywhere, Here She Is Following Me To The Bathroom”
One thing you should know about cats is that they hate closed doors. They hate to be separated if they don’t choose their alone time themselves, and they want to have all their options open.. all the time.
32. “Every Time I Take A Bath. Never Any Privacy”
If we could read their minds, we’d say that the cat is thinking, “well human, you look at ME when i take a bath so what’s the difference?!” While the dog is thinking, “I love you and miss you human, but I’m not about to get in the bath with you!”
33. “Today My Son, Aberforth, Learned That Sometimes Humans Willingly Take Baths”
Aberforth is a great name for a cat (where are all of you Harry Potter nerds at?) and the sweet little guy clearly finds the concept of bath time hilarious. We reckon it’s pretty often that cats question just what on earth is wrong with us humans…
34. “I’ll Just Chill Here”
Ahh, the good old underwear hammock. This cat is taking, “If I fits, I sits” to a whole new level. Please tell us those are clean boxers!
35. “Urgent? Have You Paid The Protection Fee?”
The kitties have taken over the washroom, and you need to pay a toll. Are they not some of the sweetest cats you’ve ever seen, though? They hardly look real!
36. “My Cat Usually Showers With Me But Decided To Hop In With My Fiancé This Morning Instead. Some Things Can’t Be Unseen”
Bengals love water, so it’s not too surprising to see one willingly get in the shower! But this poor little guy had the fright of his life when he saw a fully naked male, as opposed to his female owner. “Something is different between y’all, but I can’t quite put my paw on it…”
37. “The View From My Bathroom Window. This Is Not My Cat”
What is it about strange cats looking in through the bathroom window? But this little cutie simply doesn’t want you to be lonely! Everyone needs a bathroom cat.
Our favorite part of this picture is how awesome it is to see such a huge variety of different cats! It shows that the owner doesn’t have a preference, and to be quite honest, nor do we. That’s why it’s dangerous to take us to a rescue shelter.
39. “My Cat Walked In On Me Taking A Dump And Was Terrified”
If this cat could talk, he would be saying, “‘ whaaaaat?! You don’t do it in the garden a bury it??!!'” Can’t. Stop. Laughing.
40. “Newly Adopted Stray Sees Bath For First Time”
Have you ever seen such a totally mind-blown cat before? “Okay so let me understand this – you WILLINGLY fill the big water dish, fill it with bubbles and then sit in it?”
