Some people may believe that a cat is a low maintenance pet. All they do is eat, sleep, and use their litter tray, right? Wrong! Cats are unbelievably complex fur babies who each come with their own little personalities and hilarious quirks. Many cat owners have been sharing an insight into all the weird and wonderful perks of life with a cat, and we thought it was only right to share 43 of the best pics with you.
1. A Solar Eclipse: Cat Edition
This rare solar eclipse can only be viewed at the beginning of the 11th month when the clock strikes twelve, so we’re blown away that someone managed to capture this phenomenon on camera. Share for seven years of good luck.
2. When You Finally See The Light
Every cat owner will tell you that no matter how hot it is in your house, a cat will always favor that one sunny spot. This fluff ball seems to be regretting all of those extra kitty treats he scoffed as he stares in dismay at the thin strip of light coming through the window.
3. The Three Stages of Grief
Here we see a perfect example of grief: Acknowledgement, disappointment, and acceptance. These kitties’ owner has just informed them that he’s run out of cat biscuits- and he forgot to buy some more. It’s the biggest betrayal you can ever give to a cat.
4. Ultrasound or CAT Scan?
This little mama-to-be is reflecting on what life is about to be like as a new mom – and this mood is something that all of us can certainly relate to.
“What do you mean, there’s six of them?”
5. A Tragic Love Story
Ah, unrequited love. We can feel the pain through these pictures, and we can only hope that this love story goes on to have a happy ending.
“I thought you loved me, Clive. We even shared the same litter tray!”
6. An Artistic Accident
We’re not sure whether this cat is trying to show off his artistic skills (truth be told, it’s a purrfect circle) or simply attempting to summon a demon into the house. But either way, this plant pot certainly wasn’t knocked over by accident. We’d recommend cleansing the area with a bit of sage, just to be on the safe side.
7. Cats Or Moths?
These five kitties seem to have had a Freaky Friday moment and accidentally swapped bodies with a load of moths. Why else would they all suddenly decide to worship a lamp?
“The world’s most interesting lamp according to 5 cats, a stuffed pig, and 2 guys on the TV”
8. The Underwear Thief
Someone call Crimewatch, because believe it or not, this reckless little thief has been stealing men’s boxer shorts and socks for weeks! After his collection grew impressively large, the poor owner had to post notes in her neighbors’ letterboxes, asking who the garments belonged to. The family moved house shortly after that.
9. The First Trip Outside When Lockdown Is Over
It’s actually a special day for this indoor cat – as it’s the first time he’s ever been outside! But truth be told, lockdown has been going on for so long that we now feel like indoor humans. Is that what the sky looks like? I can hear birds! Is that another human?!
10. Giraffe Cat
This cat has one of the longest necks in the world and we’re honored that we were able to envision such a record-breaking picture.
What do you mean it’s two different cats? Don’t ruin the illusion!
11. #No Filter
This majestic beauty needs to teach us The Art of The Selfie because try as we might we’ve never been able to achieve anything near as pretty as this. Life really does suck when your cat is more beautiful than you.
12. The Betrayal
He’s spent the last 40 minutes watching the juicy roast chicken cooking in the oven, but instead of being given even just a mouthful, this poor kitty has ended up being presented with his usual bowl of cat biscuits. How could the humans be so cruel?
13. Told the cat “We are going to the vet.” This is his face.
The golden rule with any pet is to never tell them when they’re going to the vets, as the owner of this kitty has now found out. Good luck getting this traumatized little guy into his cat carrier. Anyone got any oven gloves?
14. Eye See You
This kitty has found the perfect lookout spot, and she has no idea how terrifyingly hilarious she looks. Anyone else think this cat would make a great spy? She’s got her disguise all figured out.
15. Recharging Before A Night Of Attempting To Murder The Humans
One reasonable explanation for why cats spend so much time in the sun is that they are actually solar-powered, so a couple of hours in the sun gives them that much-needed energy-boost needed for chasing shoelaces, scratching the furniture, and planning their owner’s untimely death.
If the sun is the answer for fur that shiny, then we’re never going inside again!
16. “Human, I Need Attention”
It’s been exactly two minutes since you got into the shower and stopped giving your cat attention, and it’s been two minutes too long. Besides, your kitty is wondering what on earth you’re playing at..
“You realize that’s WATER, Steve you fool! Get the heck out of there!”
17. “Did Someone Order A Cat Burrito?”
This cat still hasn’t quite grasped the concept of a towel, and seems to be of the belief that it’s meant to be used in the bath, not after. We’ve never seen a cat willingly get in the bath before, so that in itself is a rare phenomenon. But we have to admit, this looks cozy as heck.
18. “Pretty Pleassssse Mom?”
This cute kitty has a master’s degree in Puppy Dog Eyes, making it virtually impossible not to give her whatever she asks for. Whatever the little floofball wants. Give it to her. Give it now.
“Hello? Yes, I’m sorry I can’t come to work today, my cat is too cute.”
19. “If I Fits, I Sits”
Object number one in ‘Random household objects that cats like to sit in’ is the bag. Warm, dark, and perfectly cozy, it makes an ideal lair for any kitty. Just don’t try and pick the bag up!
20. “If I Fits, I Sits” 2.0
This is a great example of another item in the famous ‘Random household objects that cats like to sit in’ list. There’s nothing like a good cardboard box for curling up in, especially when it’s slightly on the smaller side and a bit of squeezing has to be required. Next time you’re thinking of getting your cat a gift, don’t bother. Simply treat yourself to something online, and give the empty box to the cat. It will be like Christmas for them.
21. The Newest Kardashian
This poor little guy will forever regret the day he thought he could take on a bee. A sting like this could have easily wiped out a couple of his nine lives. Not to mention, having lips this big makes it impossible to get anything done – but on the bright side, at least he got some free lip filler.
On a serious note, we hope this poor baby is feeling better now!
22. A Christmas Miracle
In the greatest Christmas gift ever, one cat decided to give birth to four beautiful kittens right under the Christmas tree. If these babies weren’t named Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen then we see it as a wasted opportunity. At least it will be easy to remember the kittens’ birthdays!
23. “My kitten likes to ‘hide’ in this jar, and her brother is confused!”
Both kittens are having a hard time understanding the concept of glass. Kitten A thinks she’s invisible, meanwhile kitten B can’t get his head around how he can see his sister but not touch her.
One day the cat is going to juuuust fit inside, then she will grow a tiny amount in a couple minutes, and be unable to escape.
24. Dreaming About Food
There’s nothing better than those dreams where you’re tucking into a great big tasty pizza – or in this cat’s case, an all-you-can-eat cat food buffet. Kitty heaven!
25. “He’s the only one who came when I said dinner was ready.”
Why is it that when you’ve spent the last hour slaving away making dinner, the only one ready and waiting is the one person/cat that you didn’t cook dinner for?
“Quick, Mom, just give me a bite. I won’t tell the others.”
26. “It’s Not What It Looks Like!”
This sneaky guy has been caught in the act – just wait until Tabitha finds out! His guilty expression says it all. Who knew that cats were such Anime fans?
27. “Don’t talk to me or my son or my son’s son or my son’s son’s son ever again.”
Does anyone else look at this pic and get reminded of Russian dolls? There’s a clear family resemblance here, and it’s beyond adorable! We’ll take them all, please.
28. Sibling Love
The problem with older brothers is they just don’t know when to cut it out. They always have to take things just that one step too far, and now it’s time for the sister to plan her revenge.
29. “It has taken my cat a full 5 minutes to arrange himself so that all 4 feet are on this envelope.”
When we say that cats have ambition, this is what we’re talking about. Being able to fit themselves on/into the smallest object possible is a talent that cats are most proud of, even if it takes a bit of time. Bad news if you needed that piece of paper – he’s going to be sitting here for the next hour at least.
30. Demon Flour Cat
This kitty may have accidentally got into a bag of flour, but what he didn’t expect was for his inner demon to come out. These pics are going to be in our nightmares for weeks. We hope someone called an exorcist!
31. Just A Cat In His Square
So it turns out cats don’t just have a thing about sitting in boxes – they’ll also sit in anything that’s shaped like a box. There’s actually a rumor going round that if you draw a square on the floor, your cat will sit in it. We think this pic is evidence that that rumor is true.
32. All Eyes On Me, Please
Even when you’re sweeping the room, the cat decides that he still needs every ounce of your attention. So how else is he going to get that, than by sitting in your pile of swept up, dusty gross-ness? It worked, didn’t it?
33. Boy, What A Handsome Fellow
This cat has just discovered the bathroom mirror – but to him, he’s met another kitty who’s identical to him. Creepy! The two cats got along smashingly, and they’ve already arranged another meeting tomorrow. Social distancing done the right way!
34. Liquid Cat
We have so many questions about this pic, like how did he fit in there? Can he breathe okay? Is that really a comfortable spot? Cats don’t abide by the rules of nature, but whatever the story is behind this snap, this is the only kind of salad bowl we need in our lives.
Either this cat has just pulled off an epic photobomb, or he was the one taking the selfie in the first place. We wish the cat in the background was also looking over, but maybe there’s only one cat, and he was just really fast. How’s that for a plot twist?
36. Caught Out
This greedy puss had been secretly searching for a snack before he got caught in the act. The guilty expression on his face says it all.
37. “Let… Me… Down!!!”
Let’s face it, most cats hate being picked up, and when you’re almost the same size as your human, there really is no need for them to subject you to this torture. What a chunky guy!
38. How’s it Hanging?
The problem with these pesky claws is that they can often get stuck at the most inconvenient times, leaving your fur baby in a bit of a situation. Rumor has it, he’s still hanging there to this day.
39. “You Bought Me Flowers?”
They were meant to be a present for the wife, but the cat claimed them as her own. She’s now deciding how best to burst them.
40. A New Perspective
Why do we feel like we’ve swapped positions with the cat? After all, it’s usually them staring up at us through the glass as we drink our coffee. The tables have turned, so to speak.
