Twitter Users Share Funny Stories Of Finding Their Cats In Weird Places

Every cat has a story to tell. Some stories are more adventurous than others. And there's nothing that we would love more than being able to hear these stories. Alas, cats don't speak (unfortunately), so we can only settle on getting glimpses of their adventures. 

This week, a tweet had gone viral, describing a situation in a which a cat owner went to a neighbor's house and accidentally found her cat chilling there. Instantly, twitter users started chirping in, sharing their own stories about finding their cats in random, unexpected places. It's one of the risks of letting your cat hang outside, we suppose. And the stories... are just as unexpectedly hilarious.

I just went to his house to tell him, he opened the door and there was one of my cats, sitting on his chair all comfy. 8:41 PM · Dec 4, 2020 · Twitter for iPhone 4.6K Retweets 1K Quote Tweets 150.5K Likes'

Heroes Of The Month: Celebrating Rescued Animals And Their Rescuers (November 2020)

Or tiny little animal friends have a tendency of getting themselves into trouble all the time. Pet owners and pet lovers alike know that. And though normally, it's little things like your cat getting its nail stuck in the curtains or your dogs getting its nose stuck somewhere because puepper just had to try to get that fly, sometimes, things get a lot more dangerous than that, and we have situations where animals truly need us to come to their rescue. 

Every single month, we cover as many stories as we can about these heroes- the people who put everything aside to save the little animals who've gotten themselves a bit too deep into the mud. And every single month, happily, there are too many stories to cover, so we make this little list for everyone, so that we can all give the most deserved appreciation to these heroes.

Tumblr Users Share Funny Stories Of Cats Being Loud Dramatic Angels

Cats are weird. We love them, but we can all admit they're a little weird. Probably nothing is weirder than when they go on a chirping rant to a bird or when they randomly start screaming at you and don't stop. You may never find out what they're yelling about, but when you do... you either roll your eyes because of course they just want food again, or you find out that they're extremely extremely distressed because someone put a hanger on their favorite pillow

Well, tumblr users just went on a chirping rant and told stories of their cats screaming at them, and the only conclusion is this: cats either scream at you because they're overreacting and being total drama queens or because they love you and want to make sure that you're functioning properly, you silly ridiculous large weird cat you.

Mako isn't your regular dog. When Bethany Castiller adopted him as a puppy, she had multiple cats already. 

This lead to the pup being around cats 24/7 and resulting in him growing to act like a cat, as well. 

Think of it as cat software that's been installed in dog hardware. We don't really mind it though, we think Mako makes an excellent cat. Though we must say, he won't complete his cat software installation without that "completely ignoring you when called" updated.

Hero Cat Who Alerted Owner That The Slow Cooker Was Burning

In the middle of the night, cat owner Scott White was awoken in the early hours of Sunday to his cat purring and pacing about the room. Then the rescue cat, named Joey, even stood on his chest to get his undivided attention. 

Luckily, Mr White was able to recognize something was wrong with the way Joey was acting and went into the kitchen to find the entire room filled with smoke! The smoke coming from a slow cooker he had set hours ago. 

Mr White told CBC, "We went to bed around midnight and it was fine," White said of the Crock-Pot. "And then it wasn't fine when Joey found it."
