And to start us off with the funny cats failing: this is burrito cat. If all burritos are awesome, and all cats are awesome, then are all cats burritos? We’ll never know.

Cats Demystified: Nail Biting
There are multiple reasons that your cat may bite or chew on his nails. One reason is that they are just grooming; a little cat manicure of sorts. Another reason, though, is that he may be anxious, and nail biting or licking is just a bad habit to calm the nerves.

27. The Cat That Was Scared Of Everythingshocked, scaredy cat

It’s ok to be scared of things that are, well, scary. But if you’re scared of everything like this cat, you may have a bad time with life. Just another one down in the funny cat pics.

Cats Demystified: The “Eye Of The Tiger”
If your little kitty is giving you, or something else, an intense squinting staredown, sometimes called the “eye of the tiger”, this often means that your cat is getting ready to pounce! So watch out, he’s on the prowl! Cats will examine their prey before pouncing to make sure that their attack will be as precisely calculated as they can manage. Don’t worry, though, if you happen to be the prey, it’s usually just for fun and games.

26. The Cat That Just Wanted A Silly HatCat wearing a cute silly hat

Funny cats failing? More like funny cats winning. Wearing a hat can be a great way to improve your look, but don’t tell this cat that his hat is ridiculous. Well, go ahead and tell him, he won’t care.

Cats Demystified: The out-of-the-blue sprint
Does your cat ever, just out of nowhere, seemingly at random, decide to sprint at full speed across the house? It’s funny to see, but there’s an explanation. Cats need exercise, and they tend to bore easily, so a super fast jaunt is a good way to take care of both needs. Speaking of super fast, did you know that cats can run at speeds of just over 30 miles per hour?

25. The Cat That Couldn’t Stop Beggingbegging cat in grass

Begging is one thing, but this is taking it a bit too far. Just give the cat a treat, already. Talk about some funny kitten fails.

Cats Demystified: Sitting with legs spread wide open
If it’s a female, it may be considered less than ladylike, if it’s a male, they may call it “manspreading”, as it’s been recently called. Whatever you want to call it, we’ve all seen cats sitting or laying with legs spread wide open. Since cats don’t think about indecent exposure, this is actually just a sign that your kitty is very relaxed and fully trusting of you. When animals expose their belly, it shows that they know you’re not a predator, and they feel like you will protect them if one happens to wander by.

24. The Cat That Just Wanted MoreFat cat with a double chin

This cat may have already had a bit too much to eat in life, or not enough exercise, but he’s still ready for another treat.

Cats Demystified: Rubbing up against you or the furniture
When a cat glides his body against you or the furniture, he’s actually trying to transfer his scent, marking you and the environment as his own personal property. That’s right, when a cat rubs against you, he’s often claiming you for himself. That is, not to mention that it feels good, somewhat like a back scratcher may feel good to a human.

23. The Cat That Wanted To Be A Rock Starsinging cat holding microphone

I think we may have found the next American Idol. Let’s just hope that the judges don’t have anything negative to say, it will crush this poor cat’s dreams. Don’t tell him that he’s just another one of those cat fails.

Cats Demystified: Short, quiet meows
Cats in the wild don’t meow. Domestic cats have adapted the ability to “meow” through interactions with humans, as a way of getting our attention and winning over our affection. A sweet, short meow is your cat’s way of saying “hello, I like you”. If you witness your cat displaying this behavior, it means he loves you.

22. The Cat That Was Terrible At HidingFunny cat attempts to hide between sofa cushions

Of all the hiding places, behind the white see-through curtain are one of the worst; that is when you can’t fit. Just pretend that you don’t see him, and he’ll be happy.

Cats Demystified: Leaving poop uncovered
Many people choose a cat as a pet for how clean they tend to be. Cats will naturally use a litter box, and usually cover up their business when they’re finished. But what about those times when a cat leaves his poop uncovered? There are a couple of reasons, one of which is that he is angry with you, but the more concerning reason is that he may be sick. If you see this behavior, it’s time to go to the vet.

21. The Cat That Wanted To Eat Like A PersonA white cat sitting on a table like a human

When it comes to good etiquette, this cat almost has it down. Great posture, his elbows are on the table, though, but that’s ok, we’ll forgive him. This is a funny cat win, not one of the funny cat fails.

Cats Demystified: Hissing
Many may already see hissing as an obvious sign that the cat is angry or irritated, and this is usually true. It can also be a sign of fear, though. If your cat hisses at you, don’t take it too personally, they’re emotional and expressive creatures, and he’ll come back around to loving you in no time.

20. The Cat That Instantly Regretted His Decisionorange cat stuck in crate

This is one of those moments that you remember and think “Why did I do that?”. Instant regret followed this photo.

Cats Demystified: Attently sniffing at your face
Felines are very curious creatures, and what a more curious thing to wonder about than a human? To a cat, we’re fascinating. We do so many strange things that cats just don’t quite understand. When a cat gets up close and personal with sniffing your face, it’s because he’s both interested in you and showing how much he loves you.

19. The Cat That Really Dislikes Childrenmad cat outside looking at child inside

When you just really don’t want to be touched. This cat is thinking “Just what do you think you’re doing?”

Cats Demystified: Loud, aggressive meowing
While a quiet, short meow is a loving gesture, a loud, long, aggressive meow is a sign of agitation, or in some cases, begging. When a cat gives you that mean meow, he’s not necessarily saying he doesn’t like you, he may just be unhappy because he’s hungry and is demanding that you give him some food.

18. The Cat That Mastered The Stink Eyegrey cat winking eye

The “stink eye” is a difficult skill to master, but this cat has it down. He’ll win at a staredown any day.

Cats Demystified: Imitation of a human baby
When cats learned to meow at humans, it was a way of imitating a noise that we tend to respond to with the most emotion: the cry of a baby. Sometimes, though, they take it a step further and will even imitate the movements of a baby just to get your affection and attention. Cats are clever, aren’t they?

17. The Cat That Figured Out How To Showerhappy cat swimming

Most cats hate getting wet, but not this one. Since human showers are a bit too much for a cat, he got a bit innovative with the sink.

Cats Demystified: Chattering
Have you ever noticed that strange tooth chattering sound that a cat sometimes makes? For the longest time, it was a mystery as to why cats make this noise, but recently it’s been discovered that it is a sign of pure frustration. Sometimes a cat will chatter at a bird that he can see through the window, this is because he’s frustrated and irritated that he can’t get through the glass to chase the bird.

16. The Cat That Wanted To Be A Statuekitten on two legs playing still

Believe it or not, some people do actually make a living as a “living statue”. This cat is well on his way.

Cats Demystified: Literally acting “crazy”
Cats, just like any animal, can actually go crazy, or at least appear to. There are multiple reasons why a cat may act like he’s gone crazy. One reason is that he may have fleas and just can’t handle it the constant itching, another may be internal parasites. If your cat is acting more strange than usual, have him checked out by a vet as soon as possible.

15. The Cat That Thinks He’s Better Than Youcat with smirk in box

When your cat thinks he’s better at pokemon than you. “I told you”, said this cat, as he slowly tilts his head to show how ridiculous he thinks his owner is.

Cats Demystified: Falling asleep on your chest
While there is no scientific data for why your little kitty may love falling asleep on your chest, but it’s safe to assume the reasons. One reason is obvious; he loves you, trusts you, and feels safe sleeping on you. Another reason may be that the rhythmic beating of your heart, coupled with your breathing, is comforting and helps him fall asleep much in the same way that it comforts a baby. As long as you’re not bugged by it, let him sleep and cuddle as much as he wants since it’s great for bonding.

14. The Cat That Knows Something You Don’t Knowwhite cat telling other cat a secret in a cat tree

This cat knows a secret, and it’s about his owner. It’s too embarrassing to share, though, but he’ll keep laughing to himself.

Cats Demystified: Sneaking and slinking around
Cats are naturally very sneaky little critters, and it’s one of the things they’re most known for. There’s a reason that thieves are sometimes called “cat burglars”. Being one of the more intelligent animals on our little blue planet helps to aid their clever sneakiness. If you see your cat slinking around, don’t be alarmed, he’s just being his clever, smart, and sly little self. It’s a good thing.

13. The Cat That Thinks He Is Too Cool For Youcool cat with sunglasses

This is how a cat stays cool, in more ways than one. That cool shades shows how ahead of the trend he is, and keeps his eye protective from the sun!

Cats Demystified: Kneading you with his paws
When a cat kneads you, or other objects, with his paws, it means he is very content and happy with his current situation. Kneading is usually coupled with extended purring and some of the cutest eye expressions that you’ll ever lay, well, lay eyes on. When your cat kneads your leg, it’s one of the greatest signs of affection and love that you could receive from a little kitty. Sometimes, though, if the cat still has his claws, he may accidentally dig into your leg with them, and this can be a bit unpleasant. Try not to get mad, though, as this could discourage him, making him think that you don’t feel as affectionate towards him as he does towards you.

12. The Cat That Thinks Cute Eyes Will Win You Overcloseup of big cat eyes

The big cute beggin’ eyes always do the trick. This cat is definitely used to getting what he wants.

Cats Demystified: Laying with tummy poking up
Have you ever noticed how sometimes a cat will lay on objects in a way that makes his tummy poke up? This is usually because as he is falling asleep, he is wishing someone would come and pet him. A nice belly rub is one of a cat’s favorite things, that is, when he is comfortable and in a relaxed mood. The arched back can also be a good stretch, which adds even more appeal to this sleep position.

11. The Cat That Really Likes Your Playlist

Falling asleep to music can be a great experience for a person, but what about a cat? Well, this image says it all. Look at how happy he looks!

Cats Demystified: Doing his “business” outside of the litterbox
As with leaving the poop uncovered inside the litterbox, dropping a little package outside of it can be a way of showing you that he’s very angry with you and wants to teach you a lesson. Jealousy can be a motivator for this behavior, such as if you have a new guest in the house and your kitty just isn’t quite happy with the attention you’ve been giving your friend. However, also as with leaving poop uncovered in the litter box, pooping outside of the box could be a sign of a health issue, so be sure to take him to the vet just to make sure. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

10. The Cat That Didn’t Expect You To Sneak Upguilty cat lying on couch

“Ahh! Where did you come from? You’re not supposed to be here!”

Cats Demystified: Biting you
Cats will bite you for a number of various reasons. One common reason is stress, other reasons could be that he’s actually angry with something you’ve done. Don’t be too alarmed if your cat does nip at you, but if the bite is very hard, a decent way to regain dominance is to grab the scruff of his neck, just behind the ears, and sternly tell him “no”. A frequent biter could be a sign of past trauma, so if you’ve adopted a cat and he happens to bite often, don’t blame him for it, something in his past may be haunting him.

9. The Cat That Think He Is A Superherosuperhero cat with cape

The mask fits so perfectly! Look at those eyes! A true superhero, indeed.

Cats Demystified: Attacking your feet
If you have cats, you know all too well of the sudden foot attack that a cat will make every so often. This is perfectly normal behavior; think about it, your feet are small and move around like their natural prey. It’s just a cat’s way of having a little fun with you, but if your cat still has his claws and you happen to be barefoot, this can be a bit of a nuisance. If you don’t want your cat attacking your feet, give him plenty of toys to play with, as this could distract him from your shuffling toesies.
