Some people who are stuck at home during the coronavirus quarantine are trying to kill time by solving puzzles. But with thousands of pieces and all the trippy, hypnotic patterns, they aren't easy to complete. Luckily, cats are always there to help.

If you accidentally lay a sheet on the puzzle and it can no longer breathe, relax, the kitty will tear it apart. Or have you been struggling with the darn thing for hours and can't stand to look at it any longer? No problem, the furball will knock it to the ground once it spots your frustration.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of pictures that show just how determined cats can be if they decide to give their owners a paw, and, judging from the entries, it's clear they won't rest until they get their way. Continue scrolling and check them out!

This cat clearly stole the piece and then accidentally fell asleep, forgetting all about his evil plan

However, if you really want to work on the puzzle and your pet just doesn't let you, it might be because you aren't giving it enough attention. "Boredom and excess energy are two common reasons for undesirable behavior in pets," Pamela Reid, PhD, CAAB, Vice President of The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Behavioral Sciences Team, told Bored Panda in a statement. "While families are busy working and learning from home, it's important for cats (and dogs) to do the same! In addition to physical exercise, there are many fun and free ways to give [them] a mental workout from the comfort of your house."

First, consider offering your cat's meals or treats out of food puzzle toys. Next, provide objects for them to explore, such as cardboard boxes, paper shopping bags (with the handles cut off), bottle caps, packing paper, and toys that encourage them to investigate various openings with their paws.

"[Also, consider] training your cat to learn useful behaviors and fun tricks, like 'sit', 'come', hand target, 'shake' and fetch," Reid added.

Moreover, you can position bird and squirrel feeders outside windows where your cat can easily observe animals coming and going throughout the day or even try playing videos of birds and squirrels on your TV, computer or phone!
