20+ Cat Owners Shared the Absurd Pranks Their Insolent Pets Pulled

A cute nose, fluffy paws, and beady eyes — everyone knows that our 4-legged purring friends are the most charming creatures. But their characters and habits are not always as soft and fluffy as our pets are.

Today, Bright Side editors have collected firsthand stories for you from experienced cat owners, so that you can smile at the tricks pulled by our whiskered friends once again.

  • I poured cat food for the cats. One of them ran out from the litterbox to celebrate this fact, doing her dirty business right on the go. © cyber_amazon / Twitter

  • “You don’t need to neuter him, he doesn’t mark the apartment!” But my mother didn’t listen to me, and while I was at work, she took my cat to get neutered. I found out about it when the procedure had already been done and got very angry. 3 days later, when we were allowed to remove the recovery collar from the cat, and the first thing he did was mark the cabinet. © Palata № 6 / Vkontakte

  • One of my cats looks at the water for 3 minutes before drinking it. I don’t know, maybe it’s normal, but the rest of our cats don’t do that. © evil_solnishko / Twitter

  • I called the vet clinic saying, “Hello, I want to sign up to get microchipped.” And, apparently, to make the silence even more awkward, I added, “To be more precise, this is what my cat wants.” © hovrashe / Twitter

  • When our cat underwent surgery, she couldn’t get off the sofa by herself. That’s why, when it was time to eat, my mother carried her off the sofa to the kitchen. And even after everything had healed and she could jump up on the wardrobe, she continued to call my mother to get her down from the sofa. © nanjukgosipeo / Twitter

  • Our cat just thought that a hissing bottle of sparkling water tried to bully her and hissed at it in response. © RZekaSpiewanka / Twitter

  • My cat uses her teeth more often than her claws. Other cats get angry and scratch people, and ours gets angry and bites, plays and bites, gets unhappy that everyone is gone and bites. You scratch her belly, she is happy, she purrs, and she bites. © TwLdOpNDn7pCiyz / Twitter

  • My cat really doesn’t like it when I make noise. Loud music in our apartment is unofficially prohibited, as well as loud conversations. She always tries to put things that I am moving back into their place. When I cook, clean, or do some other nonsense, she walks in circles and looks displeased. But when I sit down to read or study, she obediently lies down next to me and observes me. Sometimes, it seems like in her past life, my cat was a librarian. © Palata № 6 / Vkontakte

  • My cat loves bottle caps more than anything else in the world. Once, I was upset and was crying in the bathroom, and she kept gathering her bottle caps for me and dropping them at the door. We don’t deserve cats... © nohoomans / Reddit

  • I met a neighbor after work at the entrance lobby. She began asking me about my children and expressed a desire to get to know my little ones as soon as possible. She said that I sing lullabies to them before they go to bed very beautifully. Of course, I thanked her but cleverly avoided the necessity to answer. I do sing songs, but not for children. I do it for my cat, who won’t lie down with me without a special invitation. © Palata № 6 / Vkontakte

  • My brother had a cat. He was white, fluffy, and just handsome. But he was also sneaky, nasty, and cunning. I must say that he was terrified of my brother. Once, we saw my brother on the street and went to his apartment to have some coffee. We entered the apartment, opened the door to the kitchen, and saw this — the cat was eating his owners’ food products while sitting on the table. When he saw us, and he had no choice but to act like he’d passed out.© Palata № 6 / Vkontakte

  • One day, my cat was stretching and I started to pour cat food for him. He ran to the bowl, but at the same time, he continued to stretch his rear legs. I haven’t seen any movement that was funnier than that. © juliavishnevsky / Twitter

  • Our cat, no matter how hungry he is, will never wake us up in the middle of the night. He’ll just sit next to the bed and wait. And he will be looking at you. In the night. © selfcritical_me / Twitter

  • My cat is very funny. I am afraid to meet eyes with her because when I do, at that same second, she starts to run toward me from the other side of the apartment while purring loudly. She also begs for food in a funny way, while looking into my mouth, and touching it with her paws ... At 4 a.m. © _UNESCO_K / Twitter

  • Owners of pedigree cats: “We got our cat from the cattery, she has more certificates than you, and her pedigree is better. We needed a spotted tabby color, and because of this, we had to go get our cat across the country.” Us: “We first saw our cat when it fell on us from the top of the garage behind the dump.” © Dr_Alice_Woods / Twitter

  • My cat doesn’t walk up to the bowl, but moves the bowl toward himself, because there is no need to humiliate yourself in front of some bowl. © who_is_anko / Twitter

  • Those who use the phrase “feline grace” haven’t seen my cat falling off the couch while he’s asleep. Every time. © SappyMrs / Twitter
