We love cats, especially when they have an adorably goofy look on their face and make us laugh with their antics. Curious Zelda the cat is a phenomenon on the internet. All because of two things: the permanently surprised look on her face, as well as the amusing and witty tweets its owner posts on the internet, alongside photos and videos of the feline.

We’d love to brighten up your day and make you feel all warm and fuzzy for the week to come, so we’ve collected some of the very best Curious Zelda tweets. Scroll down, peruse (or rather purruse) the list of tweets, and upvote the ones you enjoyed.

If you know of anyone whose week needs improving, why not send them a link and let Zelda do the rest? And did you know that Curious Zelda has a book and an audiobook as well? Be sure to drop us a comment about what you think of the cat and have a look through Bored Panda’s previous list about the perpetually surprised-looking cat here.

Bored Panda reached out to Curious Zelda’s owner to talk about the cat, to learn what it’s everyday life is like, as well as to find out what the inspiration behind making Zelda's social media accounts was.

“Zelda’s amazing facial expressions and puzzling behavior. She is interested in everything, finding so much to do in such little space. I always wanted to do something creative (although I didn’t realize it would be cat poetry),” Zelda’s owner told us. Scroll down for the full meowtastic interview.

That's a sure fire way to end a friendship. Remember kids - don't eat your friends.

“The biggest challenge is getting clear photos of her — she moves around a lot! My camera roll is 99 percent Zelda and I’m happy about this,” her owner revealed the challenges behind taking such fun photos.

According to the owner, Zelda is either 8 or 9 years old because the animal shelter wasn’t sure of her age when she was rescued. “Zelda eats everything – she’s a scavenger and regularly steals stuff from the food bin. We rarely see bugs indoors because she eats them all, and she’s amazing at catching houseflies. 

She frequently stalks us around the house. She knows how to play hide and seek, and can also catch a ping pong ball.”

“I guess it’s her resting startled face! She’s very cute and innocent, which suits her existential humor,” Zelda’s owner explained why so many people are fans of the feline. “We enjoyed writing the first book together — I’ll gladly go ahead with a second if Zelda’s not too busy! Whatever happens, I’m really enjoying the experience, and spending a lot of time with my cat!”

Curious Zelda’s owner encouraged everyone to adopt cats to “make everyone's lives better.”

Sounds about right for being a cat gift

View more comments

More than 151,200 cat-lovers follow Zelda’s adventures on Twitter, eagerly awaiting the next photo, limerick, or goofy quote. What’s more, over 26,200 Facebook users are fans of the cat as well, while nearly 65,000 Instagram users keep up to date with Zelda’s daily posts.

In her book, Zelda presents her unique worldview and shares her wisdom on how to live life. Among other things, she gives advice on dating, cooking, living with human beings, as well as traveling. We like to believe that Zelda typed up the book with her itty-bitty paws (all the while staring at the computer screen with its amusing look). But odds are that her owner may have helped her write the book.

According to The New York Times, cats are much more popular on the internet than dogs and more people will click on posts about cattos than those about doggos. Some of this may have to do with the fact that felines are “solitary, asocial hypercarnivores” who want only one thing and that is to eat meat.

The New York Times argues that because cats are solitary creatures, they are ‘self-contained’ and looking at them through a TV, computer, or phone screen is much the same as admiring one in the wild (i.e. your living room). Meanwhile, dogs are different: they are extremely social and mirror our emotions, which is why it’s much more satisfying playing with a doggo in real life than looking at photos or videos of one online.

Yeah, kids or pets, there is no such thing as privacy in the bathroom. Even if you try to shut the door, they fuss so much on the other side that you have to give in and open it just to shut them up.
