We’ve had chaotic foods, chaotic memes and just chaotic things in general here on Bored Panda. But you know what there’s never enough of? Yes, cats, of course! The rulers and lords of the Internet (and our homes, sadly.) We love cats not only for their cuteness and their innate ability to play the piano. We also love it when they do crazy things.

The X page Chaotic Cats is about exactly that. Their header, a cat impersonating Patrick Bateman, probably tells you all you need to know about what type of content you can expect. So scroll away, pandas, and find your daily dose of cats acting weird below.

Bored Panda got in touch with the creator of the Chaotic Cats page. They were kind enough to chat with us about their account and the cat space on X.

Chaotic Cats started its run in July 2022. Now, almost 1.5 years later, it's still going strong and growing its follower base with each day. We wrote about the Chaotic Cats page last year when they had only over 34k followers.

Now the page has reached a much wider audience. Currently, its follower count is at 243.4k. Back then, the owner of the page told Bored Panda that their love for cats inspired them to create the account. The account's growth has been quick since its inception, and the creator told us he didn't anticipate it to be so rapid.

When we chatted with the owner of Chaotic Cats now, they said not much has changed. The creator says they took a bit of a step back from the account and the growth has been a little slower since then. And although they post content more sporadically, they still get thousands of likes under each post.

Where does the content of cats being chaotic come from, you ask? The owner told us last year that they find the photos online. And there's certainly no shortage of cat content on the Internet. The added feature of them acting weird just makes it that much more popular.

Because the content on the page comes from the Internet, sometimes people get mad for not getting credit for the photographs. The creator says they don't get that many DMs, but sometimes people can be pretty aggressive. "When I got that 800k-like thread a while back, people were mad I didn't give credit," the owner of the page tells Bored Panda.

It doesn't cost much. Just a little piece of your soul... every single time

It's the Internet, after all. Sometimes people let their worst instincts and the mob mentality take over. The owner of Chaotic Cats recalls the result of the said incident. "I was in a frenzy trying to find the source while the comments shredded me. The cat space can definitely be toxic, one of my friends had their life threatened over not posting," the creator of the page tells us.

Having a successful social media page comes with certain perks. Whether you're posting cat pictures, sarcastic memes or images of the most fascinating places on Earth, there are ways to capitalize on your success. Some creators might opt for partnerships and sponsorships. Others create websites with merchandise.

It was 4 am. You were sleeping. Your head was a trampoline.

So we asked the creative mind behind Chaotic Pictures whether they have explored any monetization strategies. "I have done occasional ads and attempted a store for merchandise at one point but quickly lost motivation," the owner of the page says.

They also give examples of pages that monetize on their popularity successfully. "The way to do it right would be like the Why You Should Have A Cat shop."

Not a wicked thought in that little guy's floofy head. Not any kind of thought.

The creator tells Bored Panda a little more about the drama that goes on behind the scenes of cat Twitter. Apparently, there's one account (who for legal reasons shall remain nameless) that exploits its audience through merchandise. The owner of Chaotic Cats says that account is "a well-known scammer in the gimmick space."

"Their shop takes your money and never delivers a product. If you pay them for ads, they take your money and never post the ad," the creator continues. "Sometimes they'd get paid for a dropshipping ad and would just steal someone's product and their money and sell it."

The creator of Chaotic Cats also has some personal gripes with the person who runs that account. "At one point, he attempted to steal my alternative account for Chaotic when I still had it." Well, I, for one, did not expect that so much drama goes on behind the scenes on Cat Twitter.

We also asked the Chaotic Cats page owner if they felt any changes after Twitter rebranded to X . As a creator, they don't see a lot of positives in the recent policies. "Boy oh boy, do I have a few words for Elon," the creator begins.

"He has killed and revived the algorithm more times than I can count. He is so inconsistent I lost motivation for running [the page]. Hurts to see your numbers plummet because he changes things without anyone else's opinion or the polls he said he would do."

But don't let that discourage you from enjoying the adorable (and sometimes strange) kitty content on Chaotic Cats. Give the account some love on X, pandas! And don't forget to upvote your favorite chaotic kittens here on Bored Panda as well.
