Cats are awesome creatures. Owning a cat is like having a mini tiger that roams around your house and cuddles with you while it purrs on your lap. They can be wonderful companions, and they make such great additions to any family. And, along with all of the above, they can also provide some much-needed comic relief. You never know what kind of antics you’ll be dealing with when you’re a fur parent, but you can rest assured that whatever it is will probably make your day. Just check out these hilarious pictures of some of the things cat owners deal with on a daily basis.
I Won’t Let Go!
This cat looks like she’s having a bad day. All she wanted to do was sleep soundly and in peace, curled up in a little ball on the top of the couch. But when her owner came through the front door and scared her, she fell off the back and was left grasping on for dear life…okay, or so she thought.
The entire scene is very reminiscent of the infamous ‘Titanic’ scene where Jack is clutching onto the floating debris after the ship has sunk. With how dramatic the cat is being, you’d think she was in a similar situation. Two minutes later, the owner unhooked her claws and she fell an entire 6 inches to the floor! What a tragedy, the poor thing…
I Can’t Go on Like This
Sometimes, a cat’s life is just way too stressful. They only got 16 hours of sleep, instead of their full 18, the food dish wasn’t full to the brim and the dog kept chasing them around the living room. This cat had enough the day this picture was taken.
To confuse the dog and avoid having to run around any circles or jump on countertops to get away, he decided to try and outsmart his canine counterpart by playing dead. It worked, because the dog got bored without the cat running away and gave up. Plus, he fell asleep like that and made up for those 2 extra hours.
Let’s Ride, Homies
Could this picture be any more perfect? Between the dog’s face and the cat’s face, it looks like a scene straight out of the most awesome animal saves the day film in the history of entertainment. Where could this trio possibly be going, and why do they look so shocked about it? Well, the cat looks shocked, the dog looks more like he’s being slightly inconvenienced.
Maybe their fur father is taking them for a trip to the vet, which would explain the sour faces. It makes it even funnier that the guy has basically the same expression as his dog, too. The cat looks like his eyes are about to pop out of his head, though.
You Did What?!
Never has any living being been as shocked as this kitty. Perhaps her owner is just breaking the news that they made an appointment for the vet, or even worse, they decided to adopt a dog.
This fluffy cat can't believe her ears, and it seems she's having a tough time accepting the news, whatever it is. We suspect this is going to take some pretty fancy treats to fix.
Dreaming of Fish
It’s kind of amazing that this cat fell asleep at the foot of the bed when they usually try to be right on the pillow. But, he did, and it looks like he’s having some pretty great dreams. The way his claws are outstretched makes it seem like he’s dreaming of being on the hunt.
They probably took this pic in the nick of time, because chances are that if he rolled over, he fell off of the bed and woke himself up. But look how adorable those little toes, even if he does think he’s using them to murder something on occasion.
Puss in Boots
This kitty is attempting to pull off the real-life version of the 'Puss in Boots' puppy dog eyes from Shrek – and she’s doing a pretty good job. How could anyone not fall in love with that face?
A kitty with wide eyes is a dangerous thing. They can get away with almost anything, because no matter what they do, their humans will forgive them. After all, would you say no to those eyes? It’s also how they’re able to blame everything on the dog. They just seem so cute and innocent! And they are, most of the time…
Help! I’m Stuck!
Sometimes cats like to squeeze themselves into tiny spaces. Okay, cats like to squeeze themselves into tiny spaces all of the time. Today, this little girl happened to stumble upon the wastebasket and thought, “that looks comfortable!”
She wasn’t planning on getting stuck, though, and she wasn’t very happy when it started to roll. Finally, she threw in the towel and decided to take a nap. She knew her owner would come to the rescue sooner or later. And she was right, but before she was rescued, they made sure to snap this photo!
Blair Witch Kitty
Even if you haven’t seen The Blair Witch Project yourself, you’ve probably seen all of the commercials, or a parody of it. And, even if you haven’t – this cat has, because he’s decided to reenact the creepy face-in-corner scene. He’s doing a pretty good job of it, too!
Maybe he’s messing with his humans to get back at them for combing him earlier. After all, he knows how terrified they are of the film – they all watched it together. Brace for the jump scare, people!
No, Thank You Very Much
This cat’s sneer says that she sees something she wants absolutely nothing to do with. It’s almost reminiscent of a young woman in a bar being offered a drink by some creepy guy that’s been hitting on her all night long. She doesn’t want your drink, buddy, back off! Just because she’s wearing a little pink heart necklace doesn’t mean it’s okay for you to invade her personal space.
Maybe the neighbor’s dog got into her yard again. This kitty obviously isn’t amused, and she’s not afraid to show it. Hopefully, the dog’s feelings weren’t hurt too badly by the icy cold glare, but hey, he should have stayed in his own yard!
Click, Click, Flash
Cats are notorious for disapproving of people with a stern glance. Sometimes, from across a room and other times, it’s your neighbor’s cat looking at you through your sliding glass door. But this cat had a good reason to be upset with his person – she took him in the car – and he did not look happy.
The dog looks ecstatic to be going along for a car ride, but the cat, not so much. If looks could kill, we’d all probably be dead from looking at this picture. This cat should get an award for the most piercing cat stare in the world.
Let’s Get It!
These two cat siblings were on a mission to catch a moth that had flown in through an open door. It teased them and taunted them, flying around near the ceiling lights. The closest they could get to their prey was by standing on this chair, so they did. They stood there and watched and waited. And the expression on the cat on the right’s face tells you how excited he was about catching it.
They probably got bored and gave up not long after. After all, cats never catch the bugs when you want them to. They’re great at catching things when you don’t, though!
Life in the animal shelter can be tough on a cat. They ‘re very territorial creatures, so they don’t like being so close to so many other cats that they didn’t grow up with. But sometimes, they hit it off with each other and make friends. These two cats have obviously started playing to keep each other company.
Let’s hope the people working there tried to get people to adopt them as a package deal! Animals are capable of forming bonds just like humans, so it would be just like you and your best friend growing up together in the same neighborhood. Or maybe that was just a sweet “goodbye” fist bump because one of them had been adopted that day. We’re sure they’re fine either way, considering how adorable they both are!
I’ve Seen Some Things, Man
This cat has been through it, all of it, and then back through it a few more times again. He’s trying to process all of the barking, the bathing and his humans ignoring him when he craves attention at 3 am every morning. He’s not going back there. He’ll do whatever it takes to avoid that situation – until dinner time, of course.
He’s just going to rough it out here in the park for the next couple of hours. No matter all of the dogs roaming around, he’s going to take his chances. He’s a strong, independent cat after all.
Look at this cat go! He’s not only dancing on top of the table, he’s actually standing on a plate and using it as a platform. Maybe the Meow Mix commercial came on and he’s so excited he just couldn’t contain himself.
This guy was probably trying to catch a moth that had flown in and was circling the light. But it’s awesome that he looks like he’s dancing. You go, groovy disco kitty, get your groove on!
Up, Up and Into the Door
This cat’s owners didn’t open the sliding glass doors for her at the moment that she first appeared in front of them. So, she decided to try something to get their attention. She got a running start and flung herself into the screen. Then, she latched on with her claws and meowed until someone came and found her. It probably didn’t take very long!
At least her owners found her in time, because just a few minutes later and she may have gotten hurt. Plus, her claws would have torn through the screen. But hey, mission accomplished, kitty!
It’s a New Day
This cat was up and ready to catch the bird that was up to catch the early worm this morning. He’s apparently a multi-tasker in the AM, because he got caught on camera in the midst of a stretch and a scratch. But that stretch looks oddly like a human’s, rather than like a typical cat pose, doesn’t it?
You can tell how ecstatic he is about starting his day, and who wouldn’t be in his position? It’s sunny outside and he has a cat door next to his house, so he can go in and cuddle on the couch whenever he wants to. But until then, he’s ready to go play with his friends. His next stop is to pick up his cat pal a few houses down.
Tearing It Up
Sometimes, a cat just has to let out some steam by attacking something. In the worst-case scenario, it means watch your back (or your toes.) In the best-case scenario, it means that your cat’s actually going to use their scratching post for scratching, rather than your couch and reclining chair!
This cat’s human bought him this little gem after their furniture was torn to shreds when they’d leave him alone during the day. Finally, they got wise and bought a scratching post. So even if it seems like he’s stressed out, at least he’s taking it out properly!
Come Back Here!
These two Bengal brothers get into play fights at least a few times per day, but their cat mom still loves them so much she’s put up framed photos of them all over the house. Like on this shelf, where they love to lounge around and wrestle. But it seems like one cat wanted to play a bit more than the other this day.
One of the kitties was ready to have his mid-mid-morning snack and decided to forfeit the fight to head for the kitchen. But the other wasn’t willing to win just because he’d given up, so he tried to keep it going. In the end, he gave up too and they both wound up in front of their food dishes.
How Dare You?
If you’ve ever owned cats before, you’re probably aware that when it comes to bath time – they are not big fans. Most cats will hiss and scratch until the cows come home when you put them in the tub. After all, cats are capable of bathing themselves, so unless they’ve gotten into something and are especially dirty or have gotten fleas and need a flea bath, it isn’t necessary to bathe them.
This poor kitty tipped the trash over and got covered in chocolate syrup, so it was into the tub with him. But even though he may have needed the bath time, he was not happy about the entire situation. His face says, “if you ever do this again, I’m going to tear your favorite sweater into bits and pieces with my claws.”
Does Not Compute
This cat had been an only child for most of his life, when one day, his owners graced him with the presence of this odd being. He wasn’t sure what exactly it was at first, the baby kind of resembled his mom and dad, but it was much smaller and unable to move around on its own. You can tell how confused he is by the look on his face.
What do you suppose crosses a cat’s mind when he sees a tiny human for the first time? You can probably guarantee that one of those thoughts is something like, is this going to have any time of effect on my feeding or cuddle time? Because if so, I am so not okay with this, people. Just wait until the kid starts to grow, he’ll probably be even more confused then.
Put Your Paws Up
This cat put his paws up in the air and waved them because he really cares…that his humans stopped scratching him behind the ears. Just because he’s an indoor and outdoor cat doesn’t mean that he doesn’t crave attention when he’s hanging out in the yard, or the park. He was content up until the moment he stopped being pet, and then he had something to say about it.
The meow that came out of his mouth could probably be heard for several blocks. It sounded more like a whine than a meow. But it probably worked and got him the pets that he wanted so desperately. Doesn’t it always?
Woe Is Me
This guy’s cat hates when he’s playing games on the computer. He threw himself on top of the keyboard and gave him the belly. Just look how dramatic he’s being about the whole thing! And since no one can resist petting the cat, he went for it. But he completely forgot that he was in the middle of a campaign when it happened – a long one.
Is the cat happy he caused his owner’s avatar to get shot so he could get his belly rubbed? Meh, he probably doesn’t care. As long as his hands are there in real life to open tuna cans, scratch his chin and refill the water, he’s content.
Don’t Come Any Closer or Else
This is not a happy kitty. From the looks of things, she’s actually an extremely angry feline at the moment. It makes you wonder what her owners did to make her so upset. Could it be that she got locked outside and missed lunchtime?
Whatever they’ve done, they’ve got some serious making up to do. May we suggest a stinky, salmon-y cat treat? She’ll at least forgive you for a few minutes while she’s eating it. And maybe just keep them coming.
Don’t Leave Me, Human!
Although cats don’t really show it quite as much as dogs do, they miss their humans when they go off to work, too. But while dogs will paw at your feet and whine for you stay, cats mostly just eye you disapprovingly from afar until you return with their dinner. Except this cat wasn’t about to let his owner leave him again for the 2nd time in the same day, so he tried something a bit extreme.
As soon as his human opened the door, he ran out and threw himself under the tire of their car and started meowing like crazy. The kitty probably wouldn’t have acted that way had he known his person was only trying to go and pick up some more cat food. Oh, the horror!
This poor cat’s home was engulfed in flames and completely destroyed in a fire. But things could be worse, because at least he made it out of there alive, thanks to the help of these brave and kindhearted firefighters. He doesn’t exactly look thrilled to be leaving his house, though. But what cat would be?
Cats don’t like change, and this fluffy little fella had been through a lot in a short period of time. And it’s not like they had time to find his carrier so that he’d be comfortable on the ride out. Hopefully, his owner was safely waiting for him by the truck with arms wide open!
Netflix and Meow
This orange tabby is obviously exhausted from his long day of being a cat. After all, it’s such a struggle to deal with humans all of the time. They always want to pick you up, and they’ve started dressing you up and the next thing you know, you’re an Instagram star.
He’s content on his couch, now that he’s got some time to himself to unwind. And hey, at least the human was nice enough to give him dibs on the remote. Oh, who are we kidding? We all know who runs the house when there is a cat in the mix!
You Want a Piece of This?
Either this cat has stumbled on something that scared his cat pants off, or he’s run into his neighborhood rival. It could be both, maybe his rival is the dog that lives a few doors down. In any case, he’s not happy and he looks like he’s ready to rumble.
The tail on the other side of the lens looks more like another cat though, so it’s more likely that this guy got caught mid pounce. Cats are super territorial, after all, so he wanted this guy off of his turf. The other cat will probably think twice before coming around to his side of town again!
Get Your Paws Off That Ice Cream!
"Don't you dare touch my Ben & Jerry's!". This orange kitty has had enough, it can put up with his food being served a minute late, with the water bowl not being absolutely fresh, with the dog hanging around...but someone taking his ice cream?! That's where he draws the line! And hey, Ben & Jerry even wrote it across their ice cream tub: "Everything But the..."
This is definitely one of the best-timed photos on this list! We don't know exactly how this one was snapped, but it turned out so perfect that it almost seems as if the owners decided to get some props (i.e. the Ben & Jerry's tub), get them in the frame and wait for kitty to do a big yawn or meow. Whatever they did, they nailed it!
Rain, Rain, Go Away
Cats are known for being indecisive when it comes to whether or not they want to be inside or outside. They’ll dance around the door for hours if you let them, poking their head out, but half of their body remains inside. Well, this cat ended up making the wrong decision on this rainy day.
Luckily for him, this happened on a weekend rather than one of the morning’s his owners left for work. Except his fur mom wasn’t very happy with him for running out that day, so she decided to snap this pic before letting him back in the house. Hey, you made the choice, kitty! Maybe he’ll remember this the next time he feels like slipping under mom’s feet to run outside.
Chip Off the Old Block
A lot of people probably relate to the way this cat is feeling. It’s almost New Year’s, which means everyone his talking about their weight loss resolutions again. Your mom asks you if that’s yours this year, for the 20th year in a row. But rather than caving in, you head to the store to pick up a few snacks.
The cat was headed for the produce section, really, but he got distracted by the shiny Doritos bags. Let’s face it, no one really wants to eat celery over chips. Do they? Well, he obviously doesn’t.
He Waits in a Dark Corner
This cat looks like he’s either about to tell one hell of a ghost story, or he’s waiting to show you a portal to another realm that’s located above your doorway. It’s also possible he’s waiting for his least favorite person in the house to walk past so he can pounce and take him out. You never know what’s on the mind of a cat.
Oh sure, he could just be standing there to guard you as you walk to and from the bathroom at night. Or maybe he’s plotting your death. You’d better move past him quickly and sleep with one eye open, just in case.
Whoever is behind the camera of this picture is in big, big trouble. This cat looks like he’s had enough of his owner’s shenanigans. Perhaps they’ve been following him around with a camera all day and he’s signaling that this is his last one – or else. Whatever they’ve done to make him mad, they’d better hope they’ve got a cup of salmon treats to make it right!
The key to any cat forgiving you is in the treats. But it’s easier if you just try to stay on their good side. After all, would you want this face staring at you from across your kitchen table? Okay, maybe. But not when it looks like he’s upset with you!
Let Me Show You My Shocked Face
This picture is more questionable than it is funny. Why does the cat look so horrified? That’s not a regular expression that cats make…in any situation. It almost looks as though something is flying towards him through the air, too. Could it be that something broke right next to him and freaked him out?
Of course, maybe this cat is just an actor who’s practicing for an upcoming vacuum commercial. “That’s it, kitty, you’re scared, work it! You can’t call cut for a snack break every 5 minutes, okay? Let’s focus, here.”
All cat owners know the joy that comes along with bathing a cat. They just love water so much! Just kidding. This cat is the poster child for all cats being put in the bath by their owners. It’s like they think the water is going to hurt them or something. It’s amazing they were even able to get this shot because you know there were claws flying all over the place!
He’s probably thinking, “Get your hands off of me, human! How dare you treat me like a child? I am 8 years old, sir, that’s like 40 in your years.” The ironic thing is, they all go bathe themselves again the moment after they charge out of the bathroom. You can almost hear the howling going on in the room, too.
But I’m The Baby!
This cat used to get all of the attention that he wanted, whenever he demanded it from his owners. But one day, they brought home this tiny human and now it gets all of the attention. Just like any jealous second sibling that’s still a child themselves, he threw a temper tantrum. “What is this thing and why is it getting my pets?”
But if the cat were any threat to the kid, they wouldn’t let him get so close in the first place. They know the kitty will warm up to his new brother over time. Let’s just hope that it’s sooner than later so he doesn’t have to bear any more teeth!
Curses, Foiled Again!
Most cats really don’t like going on car trips – unless they’ve been doing it regularly since they were a kitten and you take them somewhere that they actually want to be. Most of time, cats only end up in cars to head to the vet, and they’ve caught on to it, too. This cat has been going to the park with his human for years, hence the leash, but that’s not where he was headed today.
He got tricked into coming because he thought he was going to go chase some birds. But really, it was time for his booster shots and checkup, so into the carrier he went. He’s not going to forget this, either. Well, not until next time anyways!
This kitty’s owners are using him to teach their other two cats an important lesson. Since they’re always running out, they decided to let this little guy stay out on this rainy day. You know how much cats love water! He’ll probably think twice about bolting out the door next time. And, so will the other two…
Although, leaving the cat outside for too long in the rain and mud could have meant bad, bad things for the furniture in the house. Hell, he could get mud all over everything – kitchen counters, beds, etc. Hopefully, they wiped his feet off when they let him back inside!
Unhand Me, Hairless Ape!
Cats are finicky about how they want to be handled. Sometimes, they’ll jump in your lap and purr and rub against you until you pet them. Then, they’ll bump your hand with their head until you start again when you stop. But God help you if you pet them for 3 seconds too long. They can go from happy to hissy in less time, and your fingers better beware!
This human broke the cardinal rule and went to pet the stomach. You never pet the stomach. Not unless you know that your kitty likes it. That’s like, one of the first rules of living with cats. Better leave the kitty alone and wait until she comes to you, instead!
Don’t Even Try It
This grey tabby cat’s face is a great example of a “sour puss.” It looks like he’s been given something to eat that he’s really not a fan of. He’s trying to get the taste out of his mouth, but so far, he’s been unsuccessful, so he’s bathing to try and wipe it away instead.
Or maybe, his owner is trying to get him to eat something that he remembers being terrible from his past. In either case, he looks disgusted by whatever he’s thinking about. Give the poor cat some Gravy Train so he can get over it!
Don’t Come Any Closer!
You can tell that this cat wasn’t very happy about seeing the camera in the first place. But once it started to move towards him, he looked even more upset. His poor eyes give him the whole deer caught in the headlights look, and he genuinely looks frightened.
But no matter how crazy his facial expressions may be, he’s still pretty adorable. It’s hard to tell if his fur got any fluffier due to the fear because he’s got such a large amount of fluff already. He has to, to be able to hang out outside where it snows that much!
