50 Of The Funniest Pics Of Cats Watching People From The Ceiling
Inspired by and dedicated to the Ceiling Cat meme, which I am certain you are acquainted with, this list aims to further unravel the mysteries of god-like cats. Since you are a knowledgeable Word Wide Web user, dear reader, we’ll not dwell on the history and conception of the Ceiling Cat meme but rather ponder on the cats themselves.
For starters, this feline fascination of ours. Alright, alright, I know... You think I’m going to talk about the ancient Egyptians, their mummified cats, and the cat goddesses like Bastet, Sekhmet, and Mafdet. But just to spice up the “cats as deities” discussion, I'm adding in cat-gods from other ancient cultures as well. For one, there's ‘The Ovinnik’ — a spirit in Slavic mythology that occupies the shape of a black, fiery-eyed cat. Once full-bellied, it’s a great protector of the barn and the livestock housed there, just like a normal cat. But woe to those who let Ovinnik's tummy gurgle as the spirit will eat their animals and set buildings afire. Or take the Norse goddess Freyja for instance: her heavenly chariot was pulled not by mere steeds but by two giant grey cats. It’s said that people left snacks for these cats so they wouldn’t make a meal out of their children either. As you can see, cats have always occupied a special place among the divine, so transitioning to the overlords of The Internet is the next logical step.
Since simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, Internet cats have dropped their gilded capes and diamond claws, moving on to basic things that would resonate better with wide-eyed mortals instead. And, ultimately, prolong their sovereignty over us. Now we have the same god-like cats being praised for their cuteness, infamous cat-logic, and general buffoonery — you know, the simple stuff of a cat's existence. Like letting go of any old habit, though, dropping your status as a deity sure ain't easy. Once in a while, we see a seemingly cute cat reminding us of its authority by occupying the highest possible place in our homes and scalding us with their austere stares. If you still don't have a grasp of this post's topic by reading it thus far, I invite you to scroll down below and see our collection of Ceiling Cat photos! Call them silly cats, funny, or even stupid; deep down, you know that only divine beings can be so entertaining, so spectacular, and serious at the same time!
Vote for the cat photos that have amused you the most, tell us five reasons why you love cats and don't forget to share this article with your friends! Au revoir and bissous!

“My cat loves to climb to the highest place in the room—which is ok at home, but when we’re traveling and staying with friends, their homes aren’t as cat-proofed as mine and it becomes an issue,” Molly DeVoss, a certified feline training and behavior specialist who runs Cat Behavior Solutions agency, told Bored Panda.
She explained that at some height, cats indeed become fearful, but it is natural for them to seek high ground. “Sometimes they just need a little privacy, but this mostly comes from an instinctual alertness for predators; they can better see predators and potential territory invaders coming from afar,” Molly said.

If you've ever wondered how come your cat is able to climb to the heights so gracefully and effortlessly, except those rare unexpected falls from the top counter, Molly said you have to look at their anatomy. “A cat’s sharp, strong claws, and muscular hindquarters, make climbing easy for them.”
Moreover, cats have a crazy sense of balance and are impossibly flexible, Molly said. “When they fall, they twist and land on their feet (hence the idiom 'always land on your feet'); this is known as a 'righting reflex.' While all cat breeds, including our beloved DSH (domestic shorthairs), love to climb, the Savannah and Bengal breeds seem to exhibit a stronger penchant for climbing.”

Many studies have been done about how far cats can fall without sustaining injury. “These studies suggest cats can fall as far as 20 stories (over 200 feet) and survive with little to no injuries. However, you wouldn’t want to put this theory to the test; cats can fall about eight feet without injury,” the cat behaviorist warned.

If you don’t want your cat to climb on your counters and high places in your home, Molly said you’ll need to provide them with alternatives. “I have wall steps leading to shelves and cat beds above my windows and our cat, Pico de Gato, spends hours sleeping high above our heads. There are many surface deterrents, such as sonic sound mats and sharp/pointed mats, but I don’t recommend using a deterrent (of any kind) without first providing an alternative.”
She added: “I’ve always said, 'you can’t tell a cat no—you have to show it what you want it to do instead'—which means the responsibility falls on you to provide adequate alternatives that allow them to express their natural behaviors.”
