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.
