Usually, when we think about cats, we think about how easy their lives are - eat, sleep, and play, all day long. But have you ever thought about the actual struggles they face? Especially first world cats.

From feeling absolutely crushed after their human closes the bathroom door to spending all day catching a mouse yet their human still doesn't eat it - the struggles are real. Keep on scrolling to check them out and empathize with these poor first world furballs.

And the worst part is that they threw it away, and didn't let me enjoy part of the trophy. :(

"Maybe I'll just stand with my back feet IN the house and my head OUTSIDE, until owner tries to shut the door then I attack the door." That is my cat.

Just go find an insole to one of their shoes, and give it hell. That will teach them a lesson. :D

Just scratch at it - long enough, and it will be opened.

Tell your humans to get you a cat door, then you can change your mind all you want :-).
