I don’t even know why I like cats. They can be annoying, demanding, and all kinds of frustrating. Sometimes they even come across as an ungrateful lot. I say this because I’ve done my share of cat-sitting for some friends. I’ve literally felt like a slave to these furry creatures. And yet I loved every moment of it. They can be so effortlessly funny. They have this knack of making me laugh for the most absurd reasons.

They can be mean

Cats can be wickedly mean. I mean, seriously, who’d do that to a helpless kitten? This video makes me wonder what’s exactly going on in their head when they do things like this. And it makes me wonder what all sorts of evil deeds they’re capable of. From where I’m looking the cat that pushed that poor kitty didn’t even display any hint of remorse. Now that’s what I call ruthless.

They have this thing with baths

I know that there are cats out there that actually enjoy bathing or swimming. But I’ve yet to meet one. Most of the ones I’ve seen have this aversion to water. I’ve had scratches on my arms the first time I attempted to put one of my charges in the bath. It was a lesson learned that I’m not eager to repeat.

They can be jerks

How can one be a jerk and adorable at the same time? Ask a cat. They seemed to have mastered the art. They can be supremely arrogant and heartless at times. And they’re not generous in doling out affection. But they sure are fun to be around. I’ve developed a strange fascination for their brand of meanness. They’re clearly the kings and queens of jerks.

And here’s more of them being jerks.

For all their quirks, cat’s are the best at being funny without really trying.

I’ll just leave this one here.
