Lions may be kings of all animals but cats are certainly kings of all pets! They are the favorite pets in the U.S.A and no one can outsmart and trick them! So far, beside the fact that cats can really show they love you, a lot of us learned the hard way that owning a cat can be absolutely adorable, but sometimes very stressful experience. You've seen that cats can be jerks and that they can turn your life upside down just so it could fit their desires. Next pictures will show you other, a bit funnier, things that every cat owner experiences.

1. They are stubborn but also sweet

“I have to do what I intended, otherwise I will not be a cat anymore!” If you’re a cat owner, then we are sure that your day looks exactly like this… You can never be bored with a cat!

2. An item went missing?

How many times has it occurred to you that you were looking for your socks, favorite shirt and accidentally found your cat playing with it? Well, many times, I guess. Even though cats have no regard for your personal belongings or intimacy, you always have who to blame for everything missing or broken at home.

3. The grass is always greener in your plate

Yes, they have their own food, and yes, they quite like it; but there’s nothing like a good stake here and there, especially if it’s in your plate. Oh, and yes, there’s nothing like spoiling a human’s meal every now and then. Unlike dogs, cats don’t have that puppy-sad-ish look that makes you fall under their charm, so finally, you can’t help it but give them at least a bite of your tasty lunch. They just try to take what they want, because – of course – they need it!

4. Sleeping with your cat – well, think again!

I myself have a lot of friends who own at least one cat. Sometimes, I sleep over at their place and somehow I always wake up surrounded by paws. In theory, it is nice to take a nap with your pet friend, to fall asleep listening to their purring which is very relaxing. But the moment you are sound asleep, cats are all over you – on your head, on your belly, on your feet, so you become paralyzed. I believe you’ll agree with me – sleeping with cats never goes quite as planned, now does it?

5. Cats can’t stand competition

You know how people who have little children suddenly redecorate their living room, removing everything at children’s reach. Well, you should do the same if you own a cat. Once the cat walks through your door, you can immediately forget about (expensive) vases, plants, ornaments, sometimes even curtains if you don’t want to end up like the owner of this cat on the following picture.

6. Only they know when it’s been enough

Besides being totally crazy, making a mess all over the place, making you laugh to tears, sometimes driving you mad, there is always a time in every cat’s day when they’d like to relax and spend some time with you. Then they lie down and expect you to rub their belly… And just when you relax and enjoy your petting time together, they decide that it’s been enough, start scratching you and run away to deal with some unfinished business.

7. We all have our weaknesses

Some can’t resist eating pizzas, ice creams, listening to music or watching TV before sleep… Cats, on the other hand, can’t control themselves around toilet paper, balls, laser tags and many more things. You might say that they don’t even try, so leading insanity is always the wise choice. It rarely fails.

8. Home alone – cat edition

If you still haven’t seen The Secret Life of Pets, I suggest you do it ASAP! Since I have a pet, I can totally relate to this animated movie’s story. They really have secret lives when we’re not around. The fact that cats and dogs can turn your home upside down while your gone it’s yesterday’s news. But what is so irresistible is their cute/sad face when they see you. Not once have I said I was going to install a hidden camera and then spend hours watching the ‘Making of” of the mess.

9. Blackmail always works

Both children and cats can be spoiled and throw a tantrum if they don’t get what they want. Especially when it comes to treats. This cat sure showed her owners who’s the boss. It’s like she’s saying: “See?! That's what happens when you hide the treats from me. Now hand them over and we’ll forget about all this, OK?”

10. Unexpected guest

Imagine this is your bathroom and you’re in the shower. You slammed the door in front of your cat’s nose, so now it’s trying to come in any way possible. Luckily, this person had a camera to capture this paw trying to break in.

11. Can’t argue with this

People always try to make their homes better place for themselves and their pets. So, sometimes, they buy ridiculously expensive toys, clothes, and beds for their four-legged loved ones. But no matter the price, no matter if it’s made of the finest materials, cats will always prefer the comfort of their own kind to a bed. Any bed. No matter the price. Or materials.

12. The wrong timing

Cats really have an unexplained instinct of choosing the wrong moment for cuddling. How many times did you want to cuddle with your cat, and then she suddenly jumped from your lap and walked away like she was not interested? We don’t even have to mention that you are probably familiar with and the opposite situation…Well, that happens because cats perfectly know what they want and no one can force them to do what they don’t want to do.

13. Are you kidding me?!

It seems that there is never enough food for them, are we right? No matter how much you have put on their plate, they will never be satisfied. So, the next time you want to give your cat a lunch, do not embarrass yourself with giving her small portions.

14. What are you doing?!

How dare you to do that?! You’d better leave me alone ‘cause I’m not in a mood for kissing. Cats generally hate kissing and hugging and they like to show affection in slightly different ways like kneading you with their front paws which is a sign of pleasure.

15. They perfectly know what they’re doing!

We bet that cats perfectly know when they’ve done something bad because of their indifferent appearance every time you get mad. No matter how pissed off you can be, you should know that they will enjoy looking at your pale face. They can be so indifferent as if they simply want you to suffer from caused damage.

16. Nooo... it’s not the time for studying!

You’re in such a hurry with time for studying that you don’t even have the time for eating, but then…..here it comes! Your biggest helper has just arrived and wants to help you so badly. No matter how much you tried to drive him off, it will look like an impossible mission! Remember one thing: If the cat has decided something, she will do it!

17. I am the center of attention!

It’s a fact that cats really do like to be the center of attention! They might spend most time sleeping, but the hours they manage to stay awake can look like a real adventure. That means you’ll not have your own free time because it will also be your cat’s free time. Watching your favorite TV show sometimes can be really difficult but at the same time, it can be so funny and cute if you own a cat. A life without a cat would be really boring, wouldn’t it?

18. The tiny manipulators

They may be all cute and cuddly on the outside, but don’t be naive, they’re the master manipulators: “You put that thing on my plate again?! Are you nuts?! Why don’t you eat the same food every day then? I'd rather stay hungry than eat that thing again!” You cannot fool a cat, deal with it!

19. Don’t move for God’s sake!

The laws of physics become suspended when it comes to the cats resting out. They’re able to find the most unusual sleeping positions indeed. Although your cat looks like she’s just melted, don’t be afraid ‘cause she’s just sleeping in the strangest position you’ve ever seen! Do not try to sleep in a position like this unless you have a professional experience or you’re some kind of a cat. This cat brought a certain talent to the art of the doze.

20. You’ve betrayed me!

"Cheat me once, shame on you!" Taking your cat to the vet can be sometimes really difficult, right? No matter how much you care about her, she’ll think you’ve betrayed her. And, if you were thinking of bathing... you will soon become her number one enemy!

21. “Hmm... have I seen a computer?”

Always curious, always unpredictable…so, how to stop her? There is no solution! From now on you should share everything with your cat... even your computer. Forget about playing games, surfing, and chatting, ‘cause your keyboard has just become her favorite toy.

22. Look what I’ve found!

It’s a fact that cats are great hunters! They are able to bring you trophies every day! When we say trophies - we mean other animal species…So, next time you come home, please don’t be afraid of a “weird trophy” on your carpet!

23. All right guys, it’s clear! The vacuum cleaner is out!

You already know that cats can sometimes be very timid. They are afraid of the sudden and noisy sounds and the vacuum cleaner is probably their biggest enemy… and there is a dog in the second place!

24. Here is a good, old box!

The good old carton box beats even the most intricate of cat play houses. Easily. For cats, all the toys in the world can’t replace a simple cardboard box! It may seem like a trash for you, but for them, it’s worth a fortune! The box gives them a sense of security because they’re cryptic animals. Inside a box, every cat will feel it cannot be snuck up from behind.

25. Wake up!

You can’t sleep anymore! If I’m not sleeping you can’t sleep either! Every cat has its own sleeping rhythm. Since they like to sleep so much, sometimes they just get tired of it. Or maybe they’ve heard that something or someone is sneaking around the house so they’ve decided to check.

26. Here I am!

I’m so bored and I need to be cuddled immediately! Leave that computer and notice me! You can’t get angry with me, I know that!
