Memes and cats are the real fuel of the internet. Think of what a bland place it’d be if we didn’t get a daily fix of hilarious feline pics gift-wrapped in mysterious cat logic. Think of how many memes wouldn’t have even been born without these pictures. Grumpy Cat, Cat Jam, Smudge the Cat, Coughing Cat… anyone?!

So when combining these two of people’s favorite things, you get the most powerful cattitude memes that explain all that words cannot explain. Like all those weird, goofy, and plain ‘seriously?!’ feline behaviors.

Why do cats eat like they've got 2 secs to finish the bowl, only to puke in the middle of the carpet a minute later? And how do they decide that wreaking havoc on the house at 3 am is an excellent idea? Those cucumbers, what’s up with them?

We may never find the answers, but with the help of cat-approved meme language, we at least can get a glimpse into the weird and wonderful world of felines. It’s where everything you think you know is wrong, and everything you know to be wrong is also wrong. Power cat memes compiled by Bored Panda, the stage is yours.

It’s no secret that cats sometimes, or rather most often, do things that make no sense to humans. To help to decipher the internet-famous and genuinely odd feline behavior, Bored Panda reached out to Molly DeVoss, a certified feline training and behavior specialist who runs Cat Behavior Solutions agency.

Molly said that each cat’s motivation to act weird is a very individual thing. “Some cats do silly things to get our attention; we run and get our cameras, cooing and paying attention to them.” This attention that we shower our felines with is precisely what reinforces their seemingly odd behavior.

Meanwhile, “other cats are bored and are trying to find outlets for pent-up energy,” Molly said. Being both prey and predator animals, most cats’ instincts are still pretty powerful. As your house is their new jungle, you see the behavior that makes them jumpy, goofy, silly, yet absolutely adorable.

In fact, this precise feature that we don’t really know what to expect from them is what makes our felines perfect material for the internet. “Whatever the motivation for the strange behaviors, it’s always good to pay attention to your cat and tell it how much you appreciate the laugh,” Molly concluded.

Black cats have never been bad luck. Silly superstitions.

I'm thinking that its hind legs are wedged in between the arm rest and the back of the chair.

My cats will puke anywhere. Every surface has an equal opportunity of being hurled upon.

It's the opposite with me. I'm awake at 3am, and the cats are telling me to tone it down.

I do that all the time, not because of spiders but because she meows non stop as she wants to sniff the ceiling for some reason

Were you late for a meeting with your cat? It's gorgeous, by the way.

The medieval cat paintings are hilarious. I want prints of them on my wall.
