25+ Photos That Prove Cats Are Adorable JerksBy Dannis H. Newman
The timeless feud continues between dog people and cat people. An unbridgeable gap, perhaps! The division is real, but it seems kitties have their own loyal niche. The charge: Felines don’t have the same emotional attachment. The defense: They just have a special way of showing it, whether you like it or not!
So whether you are on the dog or the cat side of the debate – this is one discussion you have to take part of. Will it change your mind?
Purring on the Pooper
One might expect that a gal could use the John in peace, in her own home. But cat owners know that personal space means purr-sonal space, even in the bathroom!

Sure, it’s an invasion of privacy. But these two friends have decided to say hi in this foul room, even with their super-strong sense of smell. True love, it is — no matter what the Fido fanatics say!
It’s the Thought That Counts
One shocked cat mama decided to share her experience with the world. Posting on social media, she revealed the latest gift her pet brought home. But in the middle of the night, Diva the cat had some trouble getting her attention for the big moment!

A close look at the note reveals the horrid details, for all to see. A half-dead rodent was dropped in the owner’s mouth while she snored. It must have been confusing, in the dark. But every cat lover knows this was an act of affection! Thanks, kitty.
What’s That Flavor
Cooking is a daily ritual for many, and a passion for some. But can this skill really be cultivated with an animal poking around? One owner revealed her challenges with a pet photo online: ”Turned my back for a minute and she peed in 20 cups of uncooked rice.”
Reddit / TheLoxFoxReport
Many cats urinate all over the house to make their territory. But this little guy? His excellent training meant he saw a litterbox and jumped right into action. It’s a good thing he was caught in the act, of course!
Sure, missing underwear happens from time to time. And urban legends have persisted for years about that black hole that swallows up matching socks. But who would have guessed that there was a very simple explanation, all along? If the problem is on St. George street, the mystery has been solved!
Reddit / benji
Posting a sign to confess the crimes, this neighborhood got an important update. Perhaps they thought a serial killer was terrorizing the place. Who would have guessed it was a pet with a passion for panties? Verdict: Guilty, as seen here!
After a night of drinking who-knows-what, college kids everywhere hit the toilet. And not for number one or number two. It’s the place to empty their guts, mouth-style! Here, a nearby cat decides to observe as a barf buddy. Just for safety, of course.

As she leanes over the seat, her furry friend sees an opportunity for his own seat. The back is warmer than the bathroom floor, of course! Will the purring encourage a bit of movement here? The jury is still out on that, like swio many cat mysteries on the net. Meow!
Master of His Castle
Imagine receiving this note from the handyman, after a long day at work. The pipes are loose and the toilets are falling apart, but nothing can be done. Why, was the wrong maintenance requested? Nay, they say: “Black cat said no”’ to the strange men with tools!
Twitter / @quiet_ellie
The note doesn’t go into great detail, but it’s easy to imagine the harassment. Hissing, scratching, and even peeing might have gotten in the way of a good fix. Plumbers already have plenty of stinky occupational hazards. This was just too much, in the end!
Getting into a regular workout routine is hard enough, with the busy lives people lead. Sometimes it’s impossible to make it to the gym, and that’s understandable. One girl decided to pursue fitness at home, opting for pushups. A decent plan, but what happened next?
Reddit / cats_never_die
In the middle of good form, the attack began. Jumping right on her head, this flying furball went right for her eye and scalp. A one-two punch, and hard to beat! Some friends just don’t want to see others succeed. Apparently, some pets don’t either!
Cafe Au Kitty
As the old slogan goes, “The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup.” There’s just no better way to jumpstart the day! Whether filtered or fancy, caffeine is always there to do the job. It’s hard to imagine how the elixir of life could ever be spoiled. Never fear, that’s where cats come in!
Reddit / ExtensiveNegligence
Felines love to dangle, tease, and swish their tails all day, every day. But here, for whatever reason, the temperature sensor is broken! Delayed reaction? Passive aggression? Either way, it’s very unappetizing!
Cats in the Cradle
Forty winks are easier said than done. Millions have trouble sleeping, and that’s a big deal! Whether it’s sleep apnea or a case of blue light late at night, docs say it’s worth investigating the source of the problem. One man decided to do exactly that with a camera. What did he find?
Twitter / @stluis_htx
Explaining that he often felt he had trouble breathing, the footage explained a lot. No underlying health problems, just an overbearing snuggler? With the grainy pics, he could see that no cat scan was needed. Just a cat ban!
It’s Just More Comfy
Pet beds are a nice way to encourage cats and dogs to stay off the furniture. Usually, the trick works! Sometimes, though, there is a bit of competition between the four-legged members of the house. It looks like Mister Meow won the battle, right here!
Instagram / @cats_being_jerks
Dogs are man’s best friend, but it seems that this one is a cat’s BFF here. So selfless, for all to see. Even though his size could have intimidated his lil’ buddy out of the big bed, he took a loss. Sweet canine, crafty feline. Nothing new today!
Wet and Wild
When it’s time to wash off all that stress from the workday, many people really enjoy their shower time. It’s release and refreshment, in the best way. Add in a loofah and a little aromatherapy, and it can be a real lifesaver! What about introducing a cat, or two?
Reddit / kenlayne
Honestly, it sounds a bit chaotic. Here, it’s tested: One cat leaps into action and attacks the curtain. The other watches, keeping guard. And the poor victim inside? All he can do is spray water as a defense. Luckily, most kitties hate the stuff!
Sharing is Caring
It’s not easy having multiple pets if they don’t get along. Humans may love the idea of filling a happy home with fuzzy creatures. But truthfully, in the wild, cats and rabbits would be mortal enemies! How is their relationship going here, all things considered?
Reddit / redwarp10
Little bunny foo foo has been fooled, yet again. As soon as he hops away from his cozy cage, a visitor trespasses. It doesn’t look like the guest is going to leave soon, either. It’s time for a catnap, and that might mean all afternoon!
Here Comes the Meow
Weddings are full of quirky traditions, and that’s unlikely to change! From the role of flower girl to the tossing of the bouquet, there’s a certain order to things. Even if no one remembers why, it’s the big day — and as they say, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something furry.” Don’t they?
Reddit / das_cthulu
The bride has that covered, with a cat accessory — on the train of her gown, in fact. She doesn’t who judges her along the way, on her special day. Not even the photobomber on the right!
Puss in the Pie
Yogi bear made his name sneaking around windows and stealing pies. Delicious, steaming, and ready to eat, he did it unimpeded for decades right on TV. Today, it looks like there is a new culprit in town: A pawed, pastry vandal! What was the plan here?
Reddit / WashCapsFan
It appears there was no real effort to run off with the dough. Perhaps that is because the crime was too early! Leaving a clue behind, what kind of creature tried to interfere here? Looks like a cat. But unless this was mincemeat, it’s doubtful more would have been munched!
He Steals Meals
Sure, it’s wrong — but sometimes, it’s hard to blame a thief for thieving. No one would put a fox in charge of guarding the henhouse. Why did this owner put a cat in charge of watching the takeout? When there are eggs involved, all bets are off!
Twitter / @bbykaat
Truthfully, even some people would be tempted to snap up one of these! It’s not every day that whites and yolks look like such perfect delicacies. She probably let her pet enjoy the loot. But a selfie was in order, at least!
Cat and Mouse Game
Thoughtfully selected gifts are part of any loving relationship, in between cuddles. Pets love to do it, too! One social media user decided to share the highlight of her day with friends online. She explained: ”Cat left my husband a present this morning.” How charming!
Reddit / anashayg
It’s a laugh, this way. But imagine if he didn’t see it! Getting dressed in the dark, early in the morning, many husbands might be in a rush for work. A squish in the shoe is never a good feeling. Whatever it is, it was probably once alive!
One Man’s Trash, Another Cat’s Treasure
Cigarette boxes, empty cans, and shredded bags don’t sound exciting to explore. But looks can be deceiving when it comes to a mysterious, full can of garbage. What’s really hiding inside? One bored cat decided to check it out, and he’s not sorry he did! A quick flick of the paw and it all came tumbling out for an afternoon of fun.
Reddit / pickles-and-mayo
It’s a disaster, from a human perspective. But this bad boy probably knows that someone will clean it up after he slinks away. For now, he’s guarding his work and hissing at trespassers. Stay away, Mr. mop!
A lot of things could benefit from a fresh paint job, once and a while. Cities included! With so many feet on the ground, the old marks get worn down, over time. This crosswalk, for example, was due for a fixer-upper. How did that go?
Reddit / mars-is-green
It looks like all the lines were painted correctly, the first time around. A success, by any standard of crosswalk! But at some point, a city resident decided to ignore the warning cones and try out the new path. By the looks of it, the culprit is a kitty!
Cat vs. Cake
The tradition of cake and candles is an old one, dating back to ancient Greece. At some point, people started making blowing them out, making wishes, and singing songs around it, too. There’s no doubt about it: Birthdays are a happy time, frosting and all!
Twitter / @Yeefi
These days, it’s even an office norm. But as startups trying to be hip begin to keep office pets, there are bound to be some mishaps. Fun fact: A simple housecat can vertically jump five feet or more. Who thought this short shelf would help? Cakes and cats collide, in this workplace!
Worldwide quarantine for COVID-19 meant that many students had to learn how to learn again. This time, a lot was virtual. Home high school was a challenge, at times! Here, one girl decided to let her kitty join in on the fun. How did that turn out?
Reddit / devofatherofchar
Why it seems her entire got an eyeful. And a butt-full! Cats definitely don’t have the same sensibilities, when it comes to cameras. It’s like they don’t even care who sees their business. By the look on her face, though, this teen sure does!
Look What the Cat Dragged In
Yes, housecats are domesticated. But they used to be ferocious killers, out in the wild! Their instinct to stalk and retrieve still kicks in, on occasion. Here, one social media user observed it all in the act. She explained: ”My cat just came back from one of her evenings strolls with someone else’s keys in her mouth.”
Reddit / robrobxD
Good thing someone noticed before the next stage. Was the idea to bury these for a rainy day? No one quite knows why this keychain was a target, but it certainly made a good Reddit post!
Internet videos galore show that cats and boxes are just meant to be. Can’t have one without the other, if puss has anything to say about it. Here, one owner probably didn’t think the issue was in play. After washing lettuce in a small carton, this scene was hard to anticipate!
Imgur / Burritoworld
While the lunch may need a plan B, this nap does not. It’s cozy, people! Maybe it even reminds a domestic animal of the past, in nature. Sleeping on fresh leaves is normal, if anyone bothers to ask the cat!
What a Weiner
Summertime means barbeques across the great fruited plain. And that means a whole lot of savory meats! One innocent family decided that sausages would taste better grilled outside, charcoal style. Little did they know that the apex predator of the neighborhood was lurking, and ready to pounce!
Reddit / Cats_Rulez
Anyone can see the appeal: It’s a giant, fat, brat. A better question is, how could anyone leave this unguarded? There’s only so much time before the wind gets to work, wafting the scent around the block. And then, all bets are off!
Let the Cat Out of the Bag
Sure, cats love boxes. But who knew that they also loved bags or bread? This little creature decided to let his owners know the truth, hiding away with the buns. Hopefully, after a good brush. No one wants to cough up furballs from a sandwich!
Reddit / kingonxhe
Soon, he will be banished from the bag. But for now, this little fluff thinks he is out of sight, out of mind. It can be hard to get privacy with roommates, truth be told. But the bag is plastic on one side, kitty. Everyone can see you, clearly!
Super Like, All Night
Many would assume leaving a smartphone unlocked around a pet would be no big deal. After all, they don’t even have fingers to get into trouble with the device. The idea makes sense, in theory. But how wrong one guy turned out to be, with a curious cat!
Reddit / keopidor
On Reddit, one user explained how he was blocked by many of his friends on social media. Was it something he said, while drunk? Nay, it was his pet, who had achieved the impossible. With just a paw, it figured out the like button — times a thousand!
Don’t Tell the Brawny Man
It’s managed mayhem: Dogs and cats alike love to get into the toilet paper cabinet. Once that roll starts going, there’s no stopping it! Something about all that light, fluffy paper just intrigues pets. It’s time to accept that reality, and lock the stuff up!
Reddit / Miquil
Caught in the act, is this kitten ashamed? It sure doesn’t look like it, that’s for sure. Chances are, this is just the beginning of a long career of shredding when no one is watching. Today, it’s half a roll. But tomorrow, anything can happen!
Bad Hair Day
Gals with long locks know that beauty can be hard to manage. Shampoo, conditioner, blowdry, and more — sometimes those tresses just need a break. That’s where the old braid comes in: With frisky felines, it can be an invitation for a little yank and pull!
Reddit / pantiesUpinabunch
Maybe this owner actually thought this style would be manageable with a frisky friend in the house. How wrong she was! It’s all consolidated into the perfect chew toy, and now the chomping begins. Thankfully Rapunzel never had a cat in that tower, right?
Setting a sandwich down on the counter can be a risky endeavor, with cats in the house. They tend to enjoy dairy and meat, to no one’s surprise. It wouldn’t be the strangest thing to find them licking a slice of cheese. But this situation captured on film is quite odd!
Imgur / Alexandru84
It’s clear that this recipe has it all: Bread, butter, and cheddar. It would seem to be the perfect treat for a housecat. But this pet does not need a snack. He needs a seat! Open-faced sandwich, take two.
The Secret Stowaway
With a tank full of gas and snacks packed away, dad was hours into a journey across the state. But suddenly hearing a strange sound, he decided to check on the situation. Was it a meow? Yes, indeed it was. And there was a source for all the noise, too!
Reddit / makenzie71
For whatever reason, this little guy decided to take a catnap in the big van. Maybe it seemed like a private place to get to some Z’s, at the time. As the old song goes: The cat came back, the very next day. Dad will just have to check, from now on!
Cluck, Cluck, Meow
What kind of chicken is this? A housecat with an instinct to keep eggs warm? Generations of farmers know felines terrorize the henhouse! Internet users were pretty confused, overall. The Reddit victim explained: ”Five beds and ten chairs in the house. He sits on the eggs.”
Reddit / chaosgirl93
Just like a kitty to find the one spot where no one wants him. Few would hold the owner accountable for this coming mess, though. It’s a world first to find a feline that thinks it’s a mama bird, but the internet has it all!
Best Thing Since Sliced Bread
Here, a busy cat lover stepped away from the bagels all day. What happened next? He explained: ”The cat was mad we weren’t home to feed her dinner, and got back at us by ripping apart a pack of bagels and taking a tiny bite out of each one.”
Who knew that cats even had an interest in bread? Most are picky about which brand of canned food they are willing to eat. They’re spoiled! Maybe that’s the point, though. Leaving this boy alone all day required a new cry for attention!
A Puzzling Cat-titude
Jigsaws are a timeless way to keep the mind sharp. These brain teasers can be enjoyed by all ages, but they do require commitment. The more complicated ones can take weeks to do properly, but that feeling of accomplishment is like nothing else. Here, a cat collides with the hobby. Was he into it, just like his humans?
No, he really wasn’t. It seems his own passion is still cleaning himself. Can a simple puzzle get in the way of a bath? Anywhere and everywhere, it is a lifelong project!
Meow, Right Meow
Sure, cats may have a reputation for being semi-social loners, or independent personalities. But today, an exception has been found! The owner explained on Reddit: ”My cat just bit the corner of my MacBook and now my screen is cracked.” What could have led to this electronic tragedy?
Reddit / bengalguy
Depending on the breed, some cats can actually be quite needy. Evidently, this is one of those cats — and he’s not beating around the bush! Browsing the net seemed innocent enough. But when snuggles are requested, it’s not a suggestion!
The Cat Came Back
There are outdoor cats and indoor cats, and people decide early on how things are going to flow. For those kitties that are allowed to explore the world, they have a remarkable ability to find their way home. When it doesn’t happen, it is quite worrying!
Reddit / teenracer22
The owner captioned her photo on a feline forum: ”Went missing yesterday. Came home tonight about two hours after I’d printed the expensive flyers. Jerk.’‘ All things considered, it’s a miracle! But does he look like he’s sorry for the scare? Not in the least, honestly!
Fighting Like Cats and Dogs
Depending on how they are socialized, pets of different species can be the best of friends — or worst of foes. The two most common choices are felines and canines. It can be a real hit or miss, with that mix! How are these two doing, as roommates?
Imgur / HeWhoPours
It doesn’t look good, at present. With injured doggo laying on the couch, it might seem like this is a time to play nice. But carefully stepping right onto his cone, this kitty is as mischievous as ever. Fighting back will be hard now — but just you wait a month, Mr. meow meow
