In polls, there are typically more “dog people” than “cat people” in the world. Reasons cited are generally along the lines of “Cats are mean, they’re indifferent, they don’t listen.” But as a person who’s had cats most of my life, I respond to that with a hearty “You are absolutely correct.”
HOWEVER. That’s not the end of the story. As any cat owner will tell you, they can also be sweet, and cuddly, and playful, and adventurous, and hilarious, and also, yanno, incredibly cute. That’s probably why since the dawn of the internet we’ve been using this amazing technology to show each other unsolicited pictures of our cats. Let’s look at some of those from around the web now!
12. Thunder Buddies
“Watching a friend’s cat. There’s a thunderstorm outside. I’ve been like this for an hour.”
11. Throw that cat in a circle
“I just threw my belt on the floor.”
10. Closer to sun = better naps
“My cat managed to climb through the skylight and just proceeds to sit there, 70 feet above the ground.”
9. If only he could read
“Loafing on his designated chair”
8. The heat miser
“Kieran sitting right above our heating unit, blocking the warm air… Don’t worry, I made sure it wouldn’t burn his little toe beans!”
7. “Am loaf. Close door.”
“There’s a loaf in my fridge! He climbs in every time I start to cook, and I let him hang out there because it’s hot and he’s always wearing that thick furry coat.”
6. It’s dangerous to go alone, take me
“First day back to work in a little over a week of hanging with him every day, he wouldn’t stop meowing until I let him climb up my body to be my scarf.”
“During yoga I look up and see this! My cat watching me… ”
4. He’s just letting it all sink in
“Took my cat to the vet.”
3. Showered with affection
“My cat’s favorite place to sleep is now the shower, right after we use it. But i have to put a towel down first so she doesn’t get her polydactyls wet!”
2. Is a space suit
“I think someone’s got the wrong bed…”
1. Fill the bowl. I’M the bowl.
“If Dash fits…”
I think I read somewhere once that looking at cats lowers your blood pressure. I don’t know if that’s true because after looking through that gallery I’m actually feeling super anxious not being able to PET THE VERY CUTE CATS.
Do you have a cat? What’s your favorite thing about them?
