Is there anyone who wouldn’t like to experience flying? I know I would love to fly around the world, above oceans and mountains and look at some beautiful places from a different perspective. That is why I am so jealous of birds, bees and other flying insects, and… cats. Yes, cats. Of course, I know cats don’t really fly, but these images that are caught at the right moment make it look like they can. So, even though I shouldn’t really envy cats for their flying abilities, I am jealous for their jumping abilities, as well as their ability to just lie around all day. But, enough of that, let’s take a look at these awesome flying cats.
These guys don’t know what they missed
This picture is one of my favorite photos of flying cats because it is also a photobomb as well. And I like the contrast in it. I mean, you have a regular photo of people enjoying lunch, but when you look closer, you see something you don’t see every day – a flying cat. You can almost feel sorry for those people in the photo because they missed a unique opportunity to see a cat soaring through the air.

Cat vs. butterfly
Who can fly higher, a cat or a butterfly? This photo doesn’t really answer our dilemma, but it sure is pretty and fascinating. This cat saw a butterfly and it just had to fly to get it. I am not sure if it did get it or not, but this image is just fantastic anyway.

Fight or flight
The gray cat in this photo decided to change the saying a little bit. It chose to fight and flight! I mean how you can beat someone that can do everything that you can, but can also fly in addition. If someone is taking bets on who wins this fight, my money is on the flying ninja cat.

A fierce hunter
This cat is an amazing hunter as we can clearly see in this photo. Just look at the how graceful it seems in its hunt. This poor bird never knew what happened. I guess it too thought like we do that cats can’t fly. Well, this cat proves our thinking wrong since it is obviously flying.

Learning to fly
The cat in this picture is clearly only starting to master flying. Its flying skills aren’t really that good, but with enough practice, it might fly like some other cats from our list. In the meantime, we can all enjoy the silly face it makes while it fails to fly more than a couple of feet.

What can be cuter than flying kittens? My answer is – nothing. Just look at these two sweet youngsters taking their first flying steps. One day, they too will soar through the air like their older friends and relatives, but for now, this is truly enough.

Fight or flight, part two
Remember our friends from earlier? Well, here they are again and the fight is getting fiercer. Now both cats are flying and the winner of this duel isn’t so obvious anymore. It’s anyone’s game at this point. I think that the cat that shows better flying abilities will take the win here, but that we will have to wait and see.

Flying upside down
This cat enjoys flying upside down. I think I would do this too if I knew how to fly. I mean, it just seems so entertaining and fun. Imagine sliding through the air on your back all the time. For people that spend most of their time lying around, like me, that is probably a dream come true. Too bad we can’t fly.

Ready, set, fly!
This photo is so funny. Just look at the facial expression of the cat on the ground. We don’t know if that cat is unable to fly, but it does seem impressed with its friend’s flying skills. Maybe the flying cat is instructing the other one and teaching it how to fly. Who knows, maybe we soon find a photo of that other cat flying too.

All right, I am not sure entirely that this picture isn’t really photoshopped. However, seeing all these previous photos, I choose to believe it is real. Now, I know that this cat isn’t actually flying on her own since it is a part of a magic trick so technically it has help, but still, it has to be included on our flying cats list because this photo is just so funny and entertaining.
