Cat owners, you might want to ask your pets to leave the room for the next few minutes. Bored Panda’s about to prove to you once again that some cats can be some of the biggest jerks on Planet Earth. And no, this isn’t just some dog-financed propaganda to sway you to the side of best boys and girls! (R-really!)

Upvote your fave photos of cats acting naughty as you scroll down below into the wild lands of feline jerkitude. And don’t forget to share any similar pics of your meanie meowhole felines in the comment section. Need some more proof that far from every feline is a noble big cat with a regal bearing and great meowners? Check out Part 1 of our series about independent and curious cat pranksters right here. How we act around cats can have a real effect on how they behave. For instance, one study showed that cats were much more social and spent much more time with people who were paying attention to them than people who were ignoring them.

One way to ensure that your cat is giving you the love, attention, and affection that you deserve is to give what you expect to receive, take proper care of your pet, and build bonds of friendship bit by tiny bit. That involves feeding your pet a healthy diet, giving it enough exercise, and showering it with attention. And even though some individual animals are big ol’ meanies no matter what you do, they’ll be more likely to stop pooping in your shoes and knocking stuff off the kitchen counter to get your attention if they know they’re being looked after by their loyal butlers (aka us).

Just like teenagers, cats might act out because they’ve got too much pent up energy (or anxiety about how the world doesn’t recognize their brilliance). Bored Panda spoke to the UK’s leading pet charity, the PDSA, about how to take care of cats, to keep them lean, healthy, and how to help fight feline obesity. After all, if you want your mischievous pet to live a long and happy life, you’ve got to lend it a helping paw.

The PDSA told us that owners who want their felines to be slimmer and healthier should always weigh out their pets' food and choose a diet that's appropriate for their life stage and activity levels. This means toning down feeding your cat anything and everything in your kitchen and even speaking with your vet or nurse about what they'd recommend for your pet.

However, while at home, you should also do your best to play lots of interactive games with your cat to help them get up and about.

"Fishing rod-style toys are great for this but encouraging jumping, running, and playing will help and some cats can even be trained to play 'fetch' and will love the time spent with you," the PDSA explained. You'll get your cat moving, you'll spend quality time together and, who knows, all that extra movement might just be useful for pet owners as well.

Mine disappeared for a week once, we put flyers in all the mailboxes around the neighbourhood and went door to door around our block too, nothing. We feared the worst. Then he randomly turned up a week later a bit confused in our back yard... we have no idea where he was or what he was doing. If he was stuck somewhere or what. So now he has a 200 dollar GPS now and a camera, lol.

Usually give your cat about 48 hours before you spend the $$ on something like this. If they get out the first time in a LONG time.. Sometimes it takes 2 days.. Maybe 3. It's just best calling their names around your area every hour or so. Then a flyer. Idk. One slept under cars or up in cars. My other 2 were in a neighbours home. I grabbed my fluffy from her back porch as he was screaming every time I called his name. He smelled of her perfume! When she sees me, my neighbour she asks me all about how he's doing and wants to see him 😒 As well as she had my other cat in her home for 2 days and as I called him after that long he came through her window. I thought he got hit by a car. I was so upset!! Now I do everything I can to keep them inside. This lady has her own cat.. And constantly gets angry if someone feeds her cat. Lol

My cat slipped out back in June. In late October I saw her on the humane society web site and they agreed that the cat they had looked exactly like the picture of my cat. I went and picked her up, donated 50 dollars for her care, so happy my Banshee was back. Not even a week later, who comes trotting up to the door like she hadn't been gone for four months, but the real Banshee. Now I have two calico cats that look exactly alike.

My wife lost her cat. Within 12-18 hours, she had made fliers and contacted neighbors. About 48 hours later I was in the backyard. I heard meowing and finally found Spike. He was about 12-15 feet up a tree. The next day the neighbor asked if we had found the cat. It was funny. Did I mention that Spike is blind?

One time after returning from holiday my mother couldn’t find the cat. After a few days of him missing, she threw away all his possessions, thinking he must have died somewhere . Two days later he turned up. Apparently he’d tried to get his collar off, and had managed to get his entire front right leg through so that his collar was going under what would equate to his armpit.

My cat vanished for about 4 weeks. Occasionally I wondered where he was, but he just seems emancipated. Then we found out that he just prefers living with Indian people because they have a nicer house than us. Not just one lot of Indians, but in two different houses in two different suburbs, he's decamped and found the nearest Indians to move in with because they have more expensive decor than us. My cat is so racist it's ridiculous.
