20+ Smart Cats Who Took Life Into Their Own Paws and Found Themselves a Home

Cats have a mind of their own, and in their opinion, they can go wherever they want. Sometimes they end up walking into some house, which turns out to have some other people living in it. Well, that’s not always an issue — at least they’ll have someone to bring them food and rub their belly.

We at Bright Side never cease to be impressed by cats’ boldness and decided to show you some lucky people whose fluffy family members appeared all by themselves. And the bonus feature will tell you how to become an owner of 2 identical cats.

“My house, not my cat. I’m puzzled.”

“I go to the living room and look over by the chair where Colby, one of my cats, is sitting. I look again and realize it’s not Colby so I figure it must be his identical brother, Jack. I look again and then realize it’s neither one of them.”

“I saw a homeless cat on my block sitting near the entrance to the basement. I said to him, ’Shall we go home?’ and started to walk up the stairs. The cat followed me.”

“I opened the door and said, ’Please, come in.’ The cat jumped into my apartment, walked around, smelled everything, and stayed with me.” © AlekseyMB / pikabu

“Our neighbors’ cat learned how to get into our bathroom. That’s how he sits while I take a bath.”

“My house, my husband, not my cat — he just came in and fell asleep like that.”

“It was the last day of my vacation and I decided to go to work and see how things were going there. When I got to the parking lot, I saw a screaming kitten under my car.”

“I grabbed the kitty and took him home. I instantly made posts in all the local social groups to find him a home. Then I thought about it for 10 minutes and removed all the posts. Now he lives with us and makes us happy every single day.” © Shuridze777 / pikabu

“One fine evening, my husband went to the shop. On his way back, he called me and said, “Expect some guests.”

“When he came in, there was a small trembling creature in his arms, burying his face. Turns out, this kitten followed my husband on one of the blocks and was crying. So they walked like this along a couple of blocks and eventually, my husband called me and said to expect a guest. The cat’s habit to keep his face buried remained until now.” © Tullma / pikabu

“My mother-in-law’s house — not her cat but this is now the cat’s toy and blanket.”

“I got a text from my husband saying, ’No, not happening, absolutely not, don’t even think about it.’ I was at work and very confused. Turns out, he was running late and as he opened the door to leave, a kitten ran inside.”

“I posted him on a bunch of sites and knocked on every door for 2 blocks in each direction. As you can see, he’s still with us.” © Stephie Baugh / facebook

“I live on the ground floor and often keep the small window open. Once, at 3 a.m., I heard someone scratching the glass of my window. I came closer and saw a cat. I let him go outside, but the next day, he returned with the intention to stay and I didn’t object.”

“I came home and saw this chunk of fluff. My kids got a kitten, apparently.”

“There was a kitten sitting under my window. Once he saw me, he came into my arms. I got scared that he was sick or something, put him back on the ground, and ran home. In a minute, I heard this cat crying at my front door. Meet Blacky!”

“We saw this beautiful big-faced tabby hanging out in the backyard. We decided to let him in. Biggy is very affectionate and loyal, and he gets along great with our 3 poodles.”

“I was making coffee and heard a strange sound coming from outside. Opened the curtains to find this ginger clinging to my screen, crying to be let in. ”

“How could I resist?! Of course, I let him in.” © Mackenzie Clippard / Facebook

“Once, a stray cat came up to me on the street and put this fluff to my feet. This is what the fluff grew into. The cat needed a home and he got one.”

“Taken from my parents’ kitchen window — they don’t have any cats.”

“It’s been 2 months since I picked him up from the street. I can’t understand why no one wanted this big ball of love.”

“We found a cat on our bed. He helped me collect my fishing gear, and I’m sure we just have to keep him now.”

“I was on my way home when a cat jumped out of a garbage bin and started to follow me. She entered my home, ate some food, and sat on my arms. Then I went outside and let her go. Once I came back home, I instantly turned around and ran outside but the cat wasn’t there.”

“I was running around our block for 15 minutes calling for the cat. Unable to find her, I left home. Then she suddenly jumped from behind a school and followed me again. After 2 weeks of training her to live in an apartment, it turned out that a cat from a garbage bin is ideal.” © IAmBrute / pikabu

“I was on a half-empty suburban bus. Suddenly, I noticed a red spot running around the bus. It was a kitten, all dirty in some kind of machine oil. Suddenly, he jumped onto the seat next to me.”

“We called her Dusya. She still has leftovers of the machine oil, fuel oil, or whatever she got smeared in. And yes, it’s my cat. She perceives only me as her owner.” © jumbo05 / pikabu

“She will come around for food and try to sneak inside the house to play with my 2 cats, but she is still very fearful of my presence and doesn’t let anybody near her. Someday we will be friends! I named her Margaret.”

“My husband built a summer house and on the very first day, a slim cat appeared in it. She didn’t let us touch her a lot but at the same time, was never late for lunch.”

“In September, she suddenly decided that she was going to live in our home. We’d barely open the door and she’d instantly sneak inside and rush to her food bowl. Afterward, she would disappear in the rooms so that we had to look for her for several hours. Eventually, we surrendered and kept her with us.” © Mymotivation / pikabu

“She silently followed me through the front door, then jumped on the sofa. Took me by complete surprise. She had no collar, so I decided to call her Miss Pring.”

“I went to another town for work. When I was walking along a street, some kitten appeared near my feet. I pet him and went to my car. Once I opened the door, the fluffy thing ran inside with me.”

“He instantly went on the passenger seat and fell asleep. I called my wife and asked if she wanted a kitten. She asked, ’Is that a girl or a boy?’ I checked and said it was a tomcat but not handsome at all. She replied, ’Okay, bring him.’ I had a whole working day ahead and he was with me in the car all this time, sleeping either on the seat or on my lap. Now he’s a beautiful black cat whose eyes are a bit crossed but it doesn’t bother him.” © axegrin / pikabu

Bonus: “Last month my cat disappeared. A week ago, I found him and brought him home. Today my cat came back. Now I have 2 identical cats.”

How did you and your 4-legged friends find each other?
