20 Cats That Let Us Know Who Actually Sets the House Rules

Some vets believe that cats treat their owners like parents and behave like kittens. But the owners of the cats we want to show you don’t agree with that: in most cases, the animals dominate humans and try to subdue them. And most actually succeed. Our pets are always able to make us wash the dishes one more time and skip work if they want.

Bright Side is sure that we all can forgive our 4-legged friends for their mischief, because their love is boundless, though we have a hard time understanding it from time to time.

“Hi, I’m Maki. This is my bowl and I don’t know why my mom keeps putting fruit in it.”

“He’s so proud of himself!”

“There is no privacy in the life of a cat owner.”

“Caught these boys in the kitchen last night looking for a snack.”

“My sister’s cat ruined an iPad. Look at her face.”
