Hilarious Photos Of Cats Doing What Cats Do Best: Trolling People

People who love cats know that one of their most endearing qualities is the ability to misbehave and look completely adorable while they’re doing it. No matter how naughty their actions are, from destroying favorite possessions to going potty in inappropriate places, we usually can’t help but laugh about it. (After we’re done cleaning everything up, that is). Cats simply love acting up and messing with people. Here are some hilarious photos of felines that were caught in the act of trolling their humans.

Cat Said No

Isn’t it frustrating when something at home breaks, like a leaky sink or an air conditioner that doesn’t cool anymore? We’ve all been there, and we’ve all felt the relief after a professional comes by and fixes the problem for us.

The person that lives with this cat, however, came home to this note from maintenance. “We could not complete work requested because ‘black cat said no.’” As annoyed as the person must have been at first, it’d be hard not to laugh at the thought of someone being intimidated by such a friendly-looking kitty. Looks can be deceiving though.

Safe But Miserable

Redditor Gengar_pl posted this amazingly hilarious photo of their cat. “After 150 ‘Missing’ fliers and countless tears, Dolores is finally back home, safe & sound.”

We’re so glad that Dolores made it home and is safe and sound. But she doesn’t look too thrilled about it… in fact, she looks like she’s downright mad to be home. It’s much more fun to be out on adventures. Plus, you know she’s getting a bath soon and can’t be looking forward to that!

Appetite, Interrupted

We lost our appetite and can’t seem to find it after seeing what this tactless feline had in store for a perfectly good bowl of home-cooked dinner. That is quite the resting place for a cat to settle down into.

Hopefully, the food wasn’t too hot or this cat could have felt some serious discomfort after sitting down in the bowl. But maybe he needed to learn a lesson about ruining peoples’ dinner.

Sweet Relief

You know when you’re out in a public place and suddenly you really need to find a bathroom? If so, you also know how rare it is to find a pleasant place to relieve yourself… you just have to deal with whatever you can find.

This stunningly rude cat, however, couldn’t be bothered to find somewhere appropriate to go to the bathroom. So it just went in the most appealing-looking spot it found… which happened to be in a potted plant in an indoor hallway.

Under Attack

How good is this? The Reddit user who shared this photo wrote that they’d just went out and purchased Halloween decorations that included two fake black cats. Then, they walked into the room and found their (live) cat sitting with the decoys like it was trying to blend in and freak someone out.

Can you tell which one is real? It’s not hard if you really look, but at first, it does seem like three identical cats!

How Dare You Leave Me?!!

The story behind this photo is so funny that it made it into People magazine! A couple was traveling from England to New York for vacation, but when they got to the airport they were in for a huge surprise. Security personnel were giving them really weird looks as their luggage went through the scanner.

It turns out that their sneaky cat had hidden in the luggage and was planning to go to the Big Apple with them. Luckily, a friend came to pick up the cat and the couple made their flight in time.

Don’t Talk To Me Or I’ll Make This Face Again

This photo was taken after a cat meowed at its owner, and the owner meowed back. That is quite a reaction. Whether it was intentional or not, it appears that this cat is really good at making the kinds of faces that will completely freak any human out.

It almost looks like it’s about to attack the person with the camera. Let’s hope that didn’t happen, and that it stopped making this face right after the picture was taken. It’s scary.

A Thanksgiving Tradition

The person who shared this hilarious photo of their thieving kitty wrote, “My cat occasionally visits our neighbors. Today she came back with a little snack.” Wow, that is some “snack!” And a strong cat to get an entire turkey all the way home from next door.

We can only hope that the day this occurred wasn’t Thanksgiving. If it was, then that was some epic trolling on the cat’s part.

Ugly Blinds Gotta Go

Some people might look at this domestic scene and see a really rude cat that didn’t care if it ruined the blinds at all because it wanted a comfy seat on the window sill. Those are the “glass-half-empty” people.

Optimists, or people who really love cats, might see this photo differently and say that the cat is clearly doing a really huge favor to whoever chose those hideous blinds. Time to get new ones, so might as well get some that the cat likes a little better next time.

If I Fits, I Sits

Everyone who likes cats has heard the expression “if I fits, I sits.” And anyone who hasn’t heard it yet, this is a perfect illustration for you. Cats love to sit in all kinds of small spaces like boxes, shoes, sinks… literally wherever they can fit.

As you can see, cats don’t give much thought to kitchen sanitation. If the person hadn’t caught them red-handed they might never have known to rinse that pot out before using it. Which has probably happened many times before if they’ve lived with this tricky cat for very long.

No One Shall Pass

We’ve all seen cases where a little bit of authority can quickly go to someone’s head. Here’s a cat who thinks she’s the boss of everyone at the airport now that she’s in charge of security.

No way this guard is going to let anyone by on her watch. She doesn’t even care if you have a valid ID or are in a rush to get somewhere. You’re not getting past, so don’t even try.

Good For Anyone On A Diet

Don’t let the menacing look on this tabby’s face give you the wrong impression. No, she’s not being aggressive and trying to eat your pizza. She insists that she’s just doing this for your own good. You don’t need any more pizza, she says. Let her have it and she’ll take care of the rest.

We don’t think we’d argue with her, just head out and get a salad somewhere. Thanks for the diet tip, Mean Cat.

Spider Cat Strikes Again

Fans of The Simpsons Movie will love this kitty! “Spider Cat! Spider Cat! Does whatever a spider cat does! Can he swing from a web?” What does a spider cat do, anyway, besides trolling humans with its shape-shifting skills?

With the help of a friend’s paws, this clever cat knows how to fold its body up to look just like a fuzzy, tabby-striped spider. Anyone with arachnophobia would probably not want to volunteer to catsit this one…

Baking 101

Reddit user vieve3 was kind enough to share this photo with the world. The caption read, “My mom and aunt made some chocolate caramels the other night. Apparently my aunt’s cat wanted to add some artistic flair.”

Of course it did because that’s always what cats want to do. Add their special “flair” to everything in sight, especially if it belongs to someone else. It looks like this caramel is going to get eaten anyway. Best not to waste food, right?

Here We Are!

No doors, no problem. Actually, this WAS a perfectly good door until the cats decided to tear their way through it. In their defense, it was probably pretty tricky for them to learn how to pull open a sliding paper door.

They’re just doing what cats love to do most – destroying humans’ things and using them as playground equipment. At least they’re getting in some gymnastics practice on the doorframe.

What Are You Looking At?

These naughty cats do not have any remorse whatsoever about pushing all of that stuff out of the way to get up on the table. It was totally worth it for the view, they’re thinking. Who cares about those plants anyway?

When they’re done looking out the window, they’ll probably claw their way up the curtains as their big exit. Don’t bother putting those plants back up on the table, either. You know they’re just going to get knocked over again in an hour.

The (K)IT Team Is Here To Help

We’re not sure that this team of sweet kittens is going to be much help fixing the computer. In fact, it seems like they might be getting ready to unplug some of those fun-looking wires and maybe even take a bathroom break while they’re in there.

But we gotta admit that this is the cutest team of computer “experts” we’ve ever seen. We’d give them a call next time we need help!

Everything Is OK

We wonder if the dog in this photo is quietly telling himself that everything is OK and that it’s fine that the cat has completely stolen his bed. He looks absolutely stunned.

Then again, maybe this is a common occurrence in this household and the pup is just waiting impatiently for the cat to wake up and maybe let him use his bed again. There’s no way that tiny basket can be comfortable.

Caught Red-Pawed

Wow, the people who took this photo were probably pretty surprised to finally learn why all the treats in their candy dish tasted weird. Little did they know that their troll of a cat had turned a decorative storage basket into a lair that it could use to hide in and wipe its paws all over their food.

The hole in that basket is just the perfect size for a little paw to reach through, so you really can’t blame the cat for trying it once or twice!

The World’s Most Ineffective Lint Roller

Anyone who has a pet knows that the struggle to keep your floors, furniture, and clothing fur-free is pretty much a lost cause. This woman refuses to give up the fight. She’s an inspiration to all of us who have already thrown in the towel and accept the fact that we’re always going to be covered in pet hair.

The fact that one of her cats is actually sitting on her back while she toils to clean up the fur is amazing. The other kitty just looks on with amusement.

This Cat Dares You

They’ll go for your jugular and not feel any remorse. Cats are keenly aware of how dependent humans are on technology.

They understand the power of leverage, and this is a prime example of how they use it. If the cat doesn’t get the food that they wanted, you can rest assured that your brand new iPhone 8 will end up shattered on the floor within the next hour. Coming up, a nightmarish picture that shows the dedication a cat has to kill its prey…

I’m A Chicken Now

When you have three beds, two couches, a love seat, and a cat cot, it makes perfect sense that your feline would opt to sit down on a crate of eggs.

But that’s just it. They know what they’re doing and they weigh the amount of damage they can do to you when they make any decision. The more damage, the better. No Eggs Benedict for you this morning. This kitty just wants to be a chicken.

One Wrong Move And I’ll Press It!

If you have a cat, make sure that the power button on your computer isn’t accessible on the top of the tower. That’s all that we ask.

Cats understand when it’s final exam season, or when you have a deadline approaching for a major project that you’re working on. They’re not afraid to do the modern-day version of “eating your homework” and are glad to shut down your document before you’ve saved it.

No Date For You

People who don’t own cats always wonder why other people deal with their BS on a regular basis. The answer is simple: it’s a matter of life or death.

We guarantee you that this guy wouldn’t let his human friends take a wiz on his shorts. But since his cat did it then there’s no punishment because he would rather live another day. When you cross a cat, there’s no telling what they’re going to do to you…

She Doesn’t Like Pineapple Toppings

Newsflash: cats don’t care about your hobbies or your loves. They have no regard for any of the things that give us humans absolute bliss. That includes your precious pizza with the pineapple toppings.

Not even the evilest serial killer would kill someone while they’re eating pizza, but that rule just doesn’t apply to cats. They’ll lay on a perfectly good pizza slice and have no problems falling asleep at night. Takeaway: be careful where you leave your pizza.

It’s not universally known, but cats don’t like blondes. The jury is still out as to why, but many believe it’s because they see blonde people as their biggest threat to world domination. Hey, we don’t make the rules, we just inform you.

Cats saw the success of blondes like Paris Hilton and Ellen DeGeneres and have taken notes. So if you’re blonde, be extra careful with your cat because it is definitely out to get you.

Do You Think You Can Tame Me?!

Why on earth would you choose to have a cat over a dog? Dogs are clumsy, cute, fun, they love you unconditionally and don’t have a murder plotted out for you. Plus, would a dog play dead when it’s time for a walk?

Cats don’t do anything but sit and stare at you from the window sill, just waiting to pounce. This cat was brought out to have a nice walk, but instead, it took control and said “NO WAY.”

Taaaaake THAT!

There aren’t many pictures out there that give us photographic proof of a cat assault. This picture has been studied again and again by forensic investigators. Honestly, they should place it in the Louvre Museum so people can see the audacity cats have with their humans.

If you need to turn away from your computer really quickly, we understand. This picture is disturbing to see but it’s necessary. We need to know what cats are capable of.

It’s Stinky Time

They’re blatantly rude to their owners with no regret or hesitation. They play us like Travis Barker plays the drums, which is to say very well.

This cat is blatantly farting on her, and that facial expression tells us all we need to know. This is the face of someone who is defeated and hopeless. This owner even has portraits of other cats on her wall to show her allegiance with their kind, but she still gets treated like this.

The reason cats are going to be successful in removing every single human being from this planet is that they communicate well.

While we’re out here spilling the tea (or beans) on who Justin got together with last weekend, cats are busy communicating strategies about which pressure points can hurt the most on the human body. We need to learn cat language or we’re doomed. This cat is also clearly communicating that this mug is now theirs.

‘The Shining’ Cat

Cats have a dedication that is unmatched. Let’s not forget that they’re little four-legged serial killers that will do whatever it takes to get their prey.

If this picture doesn’t give you nightmares, then I don’t know what will. This scenario is straight out of a horror movie, but what’s even worse is that this is a reality for many cat owners. This kitty must have seen Jack Nicholson on the screen and wanted to try it.

What Are You Looking At?

This is a classic look that our cats give us after they do something wrong. They know that we’re not going to discipline them so they live by their own rules. It’s really a life many would love to live.

“What are you going to do about it other than head to the closet, grab the broom, and sweep this up? Also, you need to feed me medium-rare salmon tonight or your beer case will be next.”

Not THAT Apple

We need to be more knowledgeable about cats’ anatomy. While they might look like they can’t hurt a fly, in reality, they can rip open a mouse in a matter of seconds.

We cannot forget that cats are basically domestic lions. We can only assume that their teeth can tear through the toughest body armor. That means, whatever item you have, even a Mac, is fair game. Don’t leave it out or you’re in trouble.

You Don’t Get To Clean

As painful as it is to say, cats are smarter than us. They torture us by destroying items in the house but then sit there looking cute to get out of trouble.

This cat made an insane mess WITH THE CLEANING SUPPLIES. It destroyed the very tools we can use to clean up which should be very unsettling to anyone. For humans to prevail, we NEED to see right through cats’ cuteness and discipline them when needed.

Let Me Play You A Tune

Anyone saying that a world run by cats wouldn’t be that bad sure has it coming to them. Do you like music? Because cats sure don’t. They don’t care if it’s Prince featuring Beyoncé, they won’t like it.

They’re currently in the process of de-stringing every guitar on this planet and doing so without anyone knowing. This is a news story that no one wants to report on because of fear of retaliation by the cats.

The King Of Troll

Tell a cat not to do one thing, and they’re bound to find a way to tick you off another way. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles, and you can use this kitty as an example.

In no world is it okay for any animal to sit on your laptop. We don’t care how cute and soft they are, and they know that. This cat knew what he or she was doing and did it anyway.

Playing Games, Are You?

Cats love to mess with your mojo. They wouldn’t care if you were in the middle of the toughest mission of a video game with only one life to live and you needed to survive. A cat will ruin everything.

All it takes is a leap on a keyboard and boom — your gaming night gets flustered. The sad part is, the feline will feel no remorse as she does it, then she will casually go on about her day.

Could Care Less About Your Puzzle

Oh, so you want to have fun and challenge yourself with a puzzle? That sounds nice and dandy, but if you have a cat walking around, you had better be careful.

There’s no telling what a cat might do with a puzzle on the coffee table that isn’t complete yet. Your best bet is to try and complete it in a room that the feline can’t gain access to, or else you can kiss your masterpiece goodbye.

No TV For You Tonight

The new episode of Grey’s Anatomy comes on tonight and you can’t wait to see what happens with Meredith Grey. You just set up your big screen TV and you can barely hold your excitement.

Well, this cat has other plans for you. He’s going to sit atop the screen and demand that you watch him instead. That’s just how it’s going to go down and there’s not a thing you can do to stop it.

Kitties Have A Playdate

As previously mentioned, we don’t make the rules when it comes to cats. They’re going to do just as they wish and there’s no questioning them. As a matter of fact, they probably have the most fun destroying your things in pairs.

These two might’ve had a competition over who can make the most mess with shiny ornaments before the human gets home. Seriously, that’s more than likely what took place in this debacle of a scene.
