Cats: There’s just something about those little four-legged jerks that, no matter how weird or rude they choose to be, will always make us laugh. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re so crabby, or the fact that they seem unbothered by the actions of humans and dogs alike.
Maybe it’s because they have such distinct personalities, the kind that feel like they’re automatically judging you for any decision you make, at all times. Or maybe it’s because when they get themselves into trouble, they really, really get into trouble — and god help the cat that gets caught in the act.
Below, we’ve put together some hilarious photos of cats in all of these situations and more, and together, they represent the finest collection of cat images ever committed to film. From close encounters to overreactions to quiet moments alone, these cat pics will having you laughing out loud. Even dog people will get a kick out of these.
