Cats are definitely one of a kind creatures. Some people love cats with all of their hearts and souls. While others prefer dogs or maybe even no animals at all. Whichever pet you prefer doesn't really matter at the end of the day as cat lovers and dog lovers can both agree that cats are some crazy animals. They are funny and silly and mischievous and just overall unpredictable. Life is always a bit of a mystery when you have a cat. This list of funny cat behaviors will either convince you to get a cat or to stay far away from them based on their funny behaviors...which will it be?
Alerting the House of Guests
Who thought it was just dogs who would sit at the window and watch as people passed? Although it may be more of a dog behavior than a cat one, it is not an exclusive club. This person's cat sits in the window and waits for people to pass by. If someone approaches the house, instead of barking, they alert their family in a slightly different way...by opening the curtain and making this face.
It does come along with a bit of a sound of hissing or the like, but it is mostly silent. But does that make this strange behavior worse or better?
The Way to Request More Love and Attention
Everyone has their own unique way of trying to get people to show them a little bit more love or attention. Dogs usually shamelessly jump on top of you or attempt to get your attention in obvious ways, but cats are a bit more unhinged. Some cats hardly like attention, but the ones that do, have funny ways of showing it. This cat, when she wants love, nuzzles her head in her mom's hand.
This person adopted a 12 year old cat and they noticed this behavior right away. They knew immediately that it meant that they wanted some love and attention.
The Need for a Little Privacy
You might be surprised to find out what is really under these sheets as it is probably not what you thought it was when you first looked at the picture. However, it is still quite an odd sight, even if it is not the sight you were thinking. This cat, however, still wanted to have a little private time under the covers and appears to be a bit shocked that someone had the audacity to disturb him.
That seems like quite a heavy sheet to hold up for such a little cat. Doesn't his leg get tired?
Listen When They Say No Vacuum Cleaners
It seems to be pretty universal across the animal kingdom that, for whatever reason, the vacuum cleaner is the biggest enemy. It's hard to determine exactly why all animals see it as such a threat, however, they certainly do. They will do just about anything to keep that monster far away from them. These cats are no exception. They went to the highest place they could just to get away from the vacuum cleaner.
They are also showing their owners that they are not happy with the fact that the vacuum cleaner is present. They are showing their scariest teeth to keep it away.
That Can't Be Comfortable
At first glance you may be led to believe that there is a chance this cat is missing a few legs. However, that is not the case at all. It appears that the cat is attempting to get into a comfortable position and failing badly. Some cats like to roll themselves into a loaf, but this cat is attempting the same thing, but can't figure out how to tuck in those back legs.
The cat looks pretty scared and shocked as well at the failure of his attempts. Better luck next time buddy! You'll make it into the loaf eventually.
Just Enjoying a Little Bath in the Sink
What does your cat do when he thinks that no one is at home? Some cats probably just sit and relax, happy to have a few moments to themselves. Other cats probably knock things over that their owners would yell at them for. This cat has its own plan whenever he thinks his owners aren't home and that is to take a relaxing "bath" in the sink of the bathroom.
Of course there is no water in the "bath" but the cat seems to be enjoying himself as if there was. All he needs is a little bubble bath and the look will be complete.
When the Purr Overrides the Heartbeat
Some cats just have a zest for life. Although you probably wouldn't think that cats would enjoy a visit to the vet, apparantly there are some cats who enjoy any and all outings, including ones to the vet. This little cat went to go and get checked by apparently the vet and as the vet was trying to check the cat's heartbeat, she couldn't hear anything except the sound of purring.
That is one very happy cat, one whose purring overrides the sound of its heartbeat. The vet had to cover the cat's mouth in an attempt to hear the heartbeat.
When Your Rescue Cat Is a Unique One
Each and every cat has its own personality. Some are docile and relaxed while others have endless energy and are a bit reckless. This cat definitely falls into the second category. This cat was rescued and the one who brought her into her home tried to explain to friends and family just how strange the cat was. They didn't understand until they came over for a visit and the cat immediately did this.
It would have been funny enough if the cat crawled up to the woman and sat behind her neck, but the fact that the cat sat upside down made it even more funny.
Just Trying to Get Comfortable
No judgment. Everyone finds comfort in their own way and it looks like this cat has a very unique way to get comfortable. Instead of sitting on the couch and snuggling up or even sitting on top of the couch as some cats do, the cat decided to nuzzle in between the cushions of the sofa. Not only did they nuzzle in, but they nuzzled in upside down and just relaxed there.
Doesn't the kitten get a bit of a blood rush? It seems like, after a while in that position, that they would eventually feel a bit dizzy.
How to Get a Kitten to Stop Crying
It can be hard to get an animal to stop crying, just as it is hard to get a baby to stop crying. It's never easy figuring out what the problem is and trying to understand how to solve it. This kitten daddy decided to just take matters into his own hands, quite literally, when he couldn't get his kitten to stop crying. He just turned her upside down and started to pet her and that did the trick.
Disclaimer: this may not work with all cats. This also may not be good for all cats, so try this anti-crying technique with caution. And only for short periods of time!
When You Find Out Your Cat Is a Hoarder
You probably never thought that you would reach the day that a cat becomes a hoarder. However, this cat puts some human hoarders to shame. After all, the cat doesn't have very many possessions in life, but she makes sure to keep them all. The funniest part is that she keeps them all hidden in the sofa and her owner would just keep buying new toys as she thought they were disappearing. They weren't disappearing though.
She knew exactly where all of her little squeaky mouse toys were and she was happy to have them all hidden together in one place and to keep receiving new ones to add to the hoard.
When Your Cat Is Spotted Doing Pull Ups
Everyone knows that exercise is one of the most important things in life and it is the way to keep yourself healthy and strong. However, not everyone expects or thinks that cats tend to agree with humans on that. Maybe not all cats, but this cat definitely does. This family was looking for their cat when suddenly he was spotted outside the window doing something very unique and funny.
Was the cat doing dead hangs? Or pull ups? No one will ever know, but there are sure to be endless questions in store about this entire circumstance.
A Stretch and a Sneeze at the Same Time
What happens when a cat stretches and sneezes at the same time? It sounds like the start to a good joke and the punch line is this photo. Nothing can beat the punchline of this photo and you will probably be unable to resist your laughter when you see what a cat who is stretching and sneezing at the same time looks like. After all, it's not something you see every day.
This is the photo of a lifetime. If this cat had Facebook, they would have to use this as their profile image. It's just too great to not show to the world.
Caught in Action... Upside Down on Top of the Dresser
Cats are peculiar creatures. You never really know what is going on in their heads and why they do the things that they do. After all, it doesn't make sense for them to knock things off the counter just for the fun of it, and yet they do it all of the time. It also doesn't make sense for a cat to climb to the top of a closet and sit upside down with its legs in the air and yet here he is.
It would be funny to know how long this cat was sitting like this before the owner found him. Was he just napping up there or trying to do some yoga?
Not the Best Cat Deterrent
The minute you get a cat, you give up one thing...clean counter tops. No matter how hard you try, you are not going to be able to get the cat away from your counter tops. This person attempted to buy a little cactus. They thought that the cat would touch it once and then want to stay away from the pricks. The opposite became the case and the cat made a new friend.
Instead of finding that the cat chose to avoid the cactus that was on the table, they somehow became best friends and she was on the table even more to be near the cactus.
Just Casually Taking a Nap
Maybe cats really just like to alarm humans. Instead of trying to be normal and just sit and relax like all other creatures, they decide to put a smile on humans' faces by doing things like this. This person's cat loves to go to the little market by their house for a nap. But it's not just any nap, they like to nap sitting on the chair in this strange position.
From far it's hard to tell if the cat is alive or dead. They probably had quite a few concerned customers coming into their store and wondering if the cat was alright.
The Tent and the Cat Became One
It's always nice when you buy a gift for someone and they absolutely love it. The same applies for a pet. There is no greater feeling than spending money on a gift for your pet and for them to absolutely fall in love with that gift. Money well spent. This person bought a tent for their cat and their cat was obsessed. The cat would spend endless hours in the tent.
It almost seems like the cat knew exactly where to bite in order to make the most ridiculous face ever with the tent and for the tent and her to merge as one.
Being Stupid Smartly
If there was ever a prime example of "being stupid smartly" then this is probably it. This cat is clearly a bit smart as he is trying to get some water out of the faucet as it pours out. However, something seems to be lacking when it comes to actually getting the water. He has his tongue and his head facing the completely wrong direction and is nowhere near getting even a drop of water.
At least the cat is trying his best. And he is very lucky that he has owners that are taking care of him and providing him with water. Otherwise, no one knows if he would survive.
Eyes Full of Excitement
Some cats are outdoor cats and some cats are indoor cats. The moment that those two moments overlap can be one of the best and funniest moments for a cat parent. Not everyone is lucky enough to have those moments caught on camera, but this person managed to. You can just see the excitement and fear and curiosity in the eyes of this cat as she is taken on her first outing to the outside world.
Besides the excitement, the color of this cat's eyes is very remarkable. It matches the greenery of the outdoors perfectly and makes for a stunning photo.
When Your Cat Is a Thief
Not all cats are angels on earth. This cat, as can be seen by the look on his face, really enjoys living on the edge. He is a bit of a scallywag and enjoys wreaking havoc on unsuspecting people. What is one example? Do you see what the cat has in his mouth? It's a set of keys. And these keys do not belong to anyone in his family.
You can only imagine now that someone's day was completely ruined after this cat became involved. They were just enjoying life and then poof....keys disappeared without a trace.
A Cute Cat in a Cowboy Boot
What is cuter than a Siberian kitten? A Siberian kitten tucked inside of a cowboy boot. This image is one that needs to be on a calendar. It could simultaneously be on a calendar that is a year full of crazy cats and also a year full of adorable kittens. But you get the best of both worlds with this cat so how can you complain? Cute and silly at the same time.
It must be hard to get any work done when you have a little invader like this one to distract you ever time you try to take a step anywhere.
The Cats Are Always Watching
Cats have beautiful eyes, but they also have terrifying eyes. It all depends on the mood that the cats are in. If they're happy, it's cute. But if they're upset, it's scary. This owner loves her cats and she decided to let them explore around in the attic. But she also wanted to be able to see how they were exploring. This was the end result. Cats that are always watching from above.
You can look at this positively and think that the cats are always watching over you. Or you could be creeped out and think that the cats are just always watching.
The Silliest Cat of All
Some cats are silly based on their actions. They can choose to sleep or rest in funny places or maybe hang from a tree like a man at the gym. But then other cats are simpler creatures. They are strange and unique just because they make funny faces at their owners for no reason at all. This cat falls into the second category. Just look at this tongue out of mouth face.
This facial expression can't really be topped. It looks like he should turn it into a meme of some sort. Can you think of a funny caption?
The Cat With the Chicken Leg
Well you have already seen your fair share of cats sitting in funny positions on this list, but have you seen the cat that looks like a chicken yet? This is probably the first one on the list and he has to be appreciated for his uniqueness. After all, how many cats can sit in that strange position for that long without moving? They aren't chickens at the end of the day.
The funniest thing about this cat's behavior is that somehow the cat actually looks quite comfortable in this position, despite how it would appear to anyone else that is an onlooker.
The Most Determined Cat in the World
This cat takes clingy to a whole new level. Her owner, although she loves her deeply, couldn't get her work done with the cat sitting on her lap. The cat did not like the concept of not being able to sit on her owner's lap and took matters into her own hands by getting creative. Well...she never said anything about sitting on her back. So that is just where the cat decided to go.
That can't be comfortable for the cat, but despite that, she seems happy. She is able to be with her owner despite the rule of not being allowed to sit on her lap.
When the Cat Hangs Out Like a Bat
This might just be one of the funniest cat behaviors on this list. After all, how did the cat even get into this position? It doesn't seem like there is anything around to support the cat and help her get into that position, and yet she looks so comfortable there. But perhaps the strangest part is that the cat looks more like a bat here than a cat. She is confusing her owners regularly.
Riddle for the day: when your cat looks like a bat and you don't know where you're at, do you accept that she is a cat or admit that she's more like a bat?
When You Have a Cat in Your Ceiling
Cats really will use just about every possible chance they could find to put themselves in an awkward position. This cat had every opportunity in the world to just sit in his owner's house and enjoy the day, relaxing and having fun. However, the cat chose violence and went into the basement where the ceiling was being redone. There were some openings that he insisted on squeezing himself into.
Once he got into position, he just stayed that way for an undetermined amount of time. He seemed pretty content and was accepting belly rubs by anyone who passed underneath.
Who Is This Foreign Invader?
While some cats love the presence of new things in their space and their homes, other cats are baffled by their existence. This cat's owner was single for a very long time so it seems that she was used to being the only one in the house. However, when he got a girlfriend, she left behind a bobby pin in the house. The cat was not impressed...to say the least.
How long did the man's cat sit there staring at the bobby pin? Legend has it she is still staring at it, waiting for it to attack.
Is It Really a Cat if It Doesn't Fit Inside a Box?
For whatever reason cats have an obsession with sitting inside of boxes. You have probably seen the endless stories of cat parents who buy a nice present for their cats, but then the cats are far more interested in the box that it came in. It's hard to explain, but that's just the way that it is. Cats love boxes and they will spend their whole day squishing to fit into the smallest ones.
This cat, who is quite adorable and was rescued from a construction site, loves see through boxes, which makes the box obsession even cuter and funnier at the same time.
Watching the Cat Drama From the Window
Even if you don't have cats, you may be lucky enough to have cats in your life. This couple woke up one morning and saw that there were two cats outside their window and their home. They went to take a picture and they somehow captured this epic moment. See, you don't have to have a cat to partake in the drama that cats bring into a person's life.
Sometimes all you have to do is open your window and look outside and there will be a whole Romeo and Juliet style feud going on.
Holding on for Dear Life
The perfect TikTok trending audio for a photo like this is "Yup, that's me. You might be wondering how I got here". And the answer to that would be that yes, everyone really is wondering how you got there. This cat looks like they were attempting to save the world and then everything went wrong. And now they are just holding on for dear life waiting for someone to save them.
What is the real backstory behind this photo? No one really knows. The cat's actions were a mystery, but their image will become a legacy.
When Your Shrimp Obsession Goes Too Far
Ok, this one is pretty relatable. After all, there are countless people in the world who are obsessed with shrimp and would look at the food just like this cat does. However, there is something extra funny about it coming from a cat like this. You really wouldn't put it past the cat to jump onto the table and eat all the shrimp that is there in just one act of impulsiveness.
You can see the craziness in the cat's eyes as he becomes overcome with desire. He just has to have those shrimp or else. Nothing will stop him from getting them.
Heaven for a Cat Is Spilled Catnip
In case you were ever wondering what heaven on earth for a cat would be, you now have the answer. This person accidentally spilled the catnip and it fell all over the floor and all over the cat. You can see the elation and the look of ecstasy in the cat's eyes when he realizes what has happened. He probably never thought that this day would come and yet he is living his dream.
You can only hope that the cat was alright after consuming that much catnip at once. He probably reached a high and then fell right asleep after.
Is It a Cat or a Meerkat?
Maybe the name meerkat has the same sounds as the word cat in it for a reason. Maybe somewhere down the line, they shared a cousin or something that made the two creatures a lot more alike than you would have thought. If you need any proof of that statement, you are presented with this image of a cat just moments after hearing a bird chirping outside the window.
The cat stood up and looked out the window for the cat, staring for a long while and standing like a meerkat as they waited for the bird to reappear.
When You Leave Your Cat Unattended for Five Minutes
At times, having a cat is like having a baby. And at other times, having a cat is more difficult than having a baby. This person looked away from their cat for a whopping five minutes and then turned around to see their cat looking like this. No one knows how the cat got into that position and no one will ever really know. You can only laugh and hope the cat was ok.
Somehow this cat looks like he is getting dressed and ready for an adventure in space. He has donned his astronaut helmet and is ready to be launched toward the moon.
This Is Why Some Cats Can't Have Nice Things
Continuing on the theme of people who try to buy nice things for their cats, only for them to be misunderstood and never used, here you are presented with yet another example. This cat owner bought a nice ledge for their cat so they could sit on it and look out the window (which was one of their favorite activities). They set it up and waited for the cat to try it out. They would be waiting forever.
Despite having the fancy and nice ledge to look out to the outside world, the cat preferred to sit underneath the ledge and ignore the existence of the new addition to the household.
It's Impressive That the Cat Fell Asleep Like That
People often joke that dogs can sleep in just about any position. However, that is far more true for cats. The amount of strange positions that cats fall asleep in is truly unmatched. It is hard to imagine that any living creature could be comfortable falling asleep in the open space between a side table and an armchair, and yet that is exactly what this cat did...and they slept soundly.
The cat was sleeping so well that they didn't even notice that their owner came to take a picture of them. That's how comfortable they were in this position.
Maybe the Cat Is Just Thirsty
It's hard to tell if this cat is on the simpler side or if they are actually quite intelligent. After all, if the cat is thirsty, then this is a pretty good way to get some water. However, on the other hand, they will probably almost drown in water if that tap is turned on. So maybe the cat is intelligent, but they just need a little bit of guidance.
Maybe the cat wasn't trying to have a drink at all and maybe they just wanted to bite the big metal thing that was shining in front of them.
When Your Cat Is Confused by Onions
Everyone is confused by some things in life. However, onions are not usually on the list of confusing things. They are pretty straightforward to most people, they're just something that you eat and use to cook. However, this cat just doesn't understand every time her owner starts to cut onions and she gives her a look of complete confusion. At least her confused face is a pretty cute one. After all, who can not try to explain after seeing that?
There is something so cute about animals when they are confused and they tilt their heads to express it.
Walking With a Headstand
Most people aren't even able to hold a hand stand for a few seconds, let alone walk for a few steps with their legs in the air and on their hands. Although cats do have a generally smaller frame and are usually walking on all fours and not just two, it's still pretty impressive to see a cat that chooses to walk like this. Did the cat just wake up one morning and decide to walk on his hands?
This is probably one of the funniest cat behaviors on this list. After all, the cat is walking like no other creature on earth here.
