Hilarious Cats Perfectly Defining Cat Logic
While we as humans pride ourselves on developing our own rich cultures, we often forget that cats indulge in rules all their own. This is important to understand when bringing a new kitty into your home, as cats are notorious for operating on their own unspoken rules.
Here you'll meet a collection of cats who’ll introduce you to the ways of kittykind by demonstrating the unique and celebrated customs of their people.
This Peeping Tom...Cat
Every relationship has its compromises, and that between a fur-parent and their cat is no different. Upon bringing a feline into your home, your privacy will be among the first things you must be prepared to part with. For your own safety, your cat will insist on knowing your whereabouts at all times.
Cat vs. Computer
The history between cats and computers is a long and complicated one. Most cats are initially confused by the existence of a warm, cat-sized item that humans insist cats must resist the urge to sit on. Unfortunately, their frustration in the face of this paradox often grows into anger.
Taste Test in Progress
If you’ve ever shared your home with a cat, then you possibly know about the taste test that cats expect all food to undergo in their presence. First and foremost, any item you plan to ingest must first be thoroughly sniffed by your feline companion.
Interior Design Kitty Shakes Things Up
When it comes to gifts, cat owners everywhere are encouraged to keep them coming on a regular basis. The purchase of expensive cat toys, beds and other items is a most appropriate way to keep your pet in a constant supply of the boxes these products arrive in. And we all know cats prefer the boxes, right?
Sound the Alarm
Fear not; once you add a cat to your family, you'll never endure an ambush from a completely non-threatening event again. This particular unsuspecting homeowner might never have known about a drop of water that dared drip unbidden from her bathtub faucet — if it wasn’t for her trusty cat.
The Taco Cone
While dogs may wear cones of "shame," the language of cats has no word for the concept. Instead, wearing a cone may bring on a variety of other, more cat-appropriate emotions. In some kitties, this may take the form of rage, fury or an all-out refusal to acknowledge the offending object.
Revenge Kitty’s Retribution
These photos tell the cautionary tale of an owner who somehow missed the memo that cats are self-cleaning. The misguided fur-dad attempted to give his cat a bath after carefully removing his shorts in an effort to avoid getting them wet.
She Pleads the Fifth
So long ago that the exact date has been lost to time, an unshakeable agreement was struck with members of kittykind. The provisions of this universal law state in no uncertain terms that no cat shall ever be convicted of a crime. This especially applies to offenses that the cat in question blatantly committed.
If you've ever found yourself wondering whether you've spoiled your cat, then rest assured that you're on the right track. If the sight of him enjoying his personal iPad within the comfort of his yurt concerns you, take it as a sign that you're pretty much nailing cat ownership.
This Present Wrapper
Adopting a cat means that you'll never again have to undertake any activity alone. Whether you plan on wrapping presents, writing emails or attempting to do a jigsaw puzzle, rest assured that your cat will always materialize out of the mists in order to lend a paw.
The Kitty Cabinet Convention
Every now and then, you may accidentally stumble upon cats who are conducting official kitty business at the highest levels. The cats you see here are clearly engaged in an important group task, and they’re the only ones who know the end goal.
Liquid Cat Does Not Care
While we as humans understand the limitations of small spaces well, cats are universally and morally opposed to accepting such concepts. In fact, cats everywhere see small spaces as nothing short of personal challenges and have become wildly adept at conquering them.
An Amazing Vantage Point
Another of the infinite advantages of being a cat is the ability to make literally anything into an impromptu perch. Always be aware of your cat's need to know everything that happens in your household. Selecting the highest possible perch is often the most effective means for a cat to achieve this goal.
This Priceless Maintenance Report
Over the years, dogs have managed to gain the reputation of being four-legged alarm systems. Many a cat has found itself disturbed by the idea that its kind has been labeled the less-faithful guardian. Some have even decided to set about doing their best to correct this erroneous thinking.
This Rampaging Kitten
For years, cats roamed the untamed wilderness where they bravely faced off against a wide variety of enemies. Though many have now decided to accept positions as house cats, their proclivity for attacking indoor dangers remains faithfully intact. What enemies does the average indoor cat face?
I'll Just Lie...Here
The many freedoms that cats enjoy are perhaps nowhere more unrestricted than when it comes to lying around. Among the most sacred duties of kittykind, you must allow the lounging to commence anywhere your cat deems appropriate.
A Bat Revoked
Among the other most important activities cats do is the "bat." The bat is achieved when a kitty randomly smacks, touches or otherwise places its paw upon another object. Among the biggest misconceptions among cat-lovers everywhere is the idea that some objects are off-limits for batting.
Ain't Nobody Got Time for Tap
In case it wasn't immediately clear the first time you ever laid your eyes on a cat, kitties were made for the finer things in life. The fact that their kind were once worshipped in Egypt has never been lost on them and is a standard they still encourage humans to uphold.
Water Bottle Cat Does What He Wants
While you may be tempted to believe this is yet another protest from a cat presented with tap water, this photo actually teaches another important lesson. Anyone who really understands the laws of kitty-dom knows that there’s no cat in this photo at all, for the kitty in it is brilliantly hidden.
A word about bringing a new kitten into your home: While you may be tempted to chronicle every adorably fluffy moment of your new friend's kittenhood, take care to shower just as much attention on any existing cats.
This Kitty Requires Your Assistance
As we all know, cats are incapable of making mistakes of any kind. This does not, however, mean that some of their perfectly plotted antics don’t require your assistance. The kitty you see here has undertaken a random and brilliant adventure into the uncharted territory between a sliding glass door and screen door.
Partners in Crime
If you're expecting a new child, rest assured that your cat is already prepared to teach them everything a new human should know. The responsibilities of a baby and a cat are wildly similar, and your cat will instinctively be ready to share its wealth of wisdom.
Christmas Kitty Crashes the Party
Though occasionally considered aloof or judgmental, you'll never find a bigger fan of Christmas than the cat. Cats everywhere faithfully await the approach of December, when their humans finally realize the wisdom of constructing them tiny, cat-sized houses filled with other divine beings.
It's Not What It Looks Like
Upon returning home earlier than expected, you may encounter what at first appears to be a questionable display. The cat here assures you that everything is not only under control but is also exactly as it should be.
Camo Kitty Goes Stealth Mode
Kitties have been known for centuries to possess many strange and magical powers. Their ability to achieve ninja-like levels of stealth in an instant is one of the most celebrated. Masters of disguise, cats can use everyday objects to render themselves invisible at a moment's notice.
Just Hangin' Out
Cats always have your best interests at heart, and it's therefore essential to them to make sure that everyone you encounter knows that you belong to them. After careful consideration, cats decided that one of the best ways to achieve this outcome is decorating every piece of clothing you own with fur.
Kitty vs. Christmas Tree
One of the reasons that cats are notoriously festive around the holidays comes from the yearly appearance of Christmas trees in their owners’ homes. Cats insist that they invented this tradition and still assume that people uphold it each year for their pleasure.
Catnip Kitty Raises the Roof
If you know the feeling of coming home after a long day, then you already know how your cat feels when you bust out the catnip. After a hard day of lying in various places, shredding toilet paper and staring out your front window at falling leaves, cats too are ready for a break from it all.
Here we have a rare photo that shows a variety of cats’ many gifts all being displayed at once. First of all, this cat has clearly chosen to help his owner with the cooking. Yet he's also invoking the art of lying around — in the most elegantly random of places.
Among the most convenient skills of cats is their ability to multitask. The little guy you see here has defied all expectations by managing to get his claws caught in not one but two items at the same time.
