Welcome to the internet, where possibilities are endless, yet we still would choose cat pictures over any art piece ever shared online. Why do we love cats? If you have ever been accepted by a cat so that it climbed and sat on your lap and voluntarily started to purr, then you know the answer. They are irresistible, cute, and entertaining.

We love cats so much that we even hire them (not really) to work at stores. Such cats are called bodega cats. Even though it is probably illegal due to some health codes, that doesn’t stop this phenomenon. These bodega cats can either be domesticated or semi-feral.

Nowadays, bodega cats are a part of our internet culture, and we are happy to present you with some of the cutest cat pictures online. This Twitter account by the name @bodegacats_ shares cats taking their responsibilities ‘seriously’ by protecting the merchandise.

If you feel like this list was too short, feel free to visit our other posts on Bored Panda here, here, here, and here.

Cat and human relationships date back to 7500 B.C. It all started with a beneficial trade of mice. Cats would hunt them for food, and that saved harvested crops from being eaten. Nowadays, we do not need cats for pest control. We need them for friendship and photos to put on the internet. Obviously, we love a good hunter cat, but since we usually don’t have rodent problems, that nocturnal behavior now disturbs our sleep rather than helps keep the house protected.

Cats basically have been working for people since the beginning, therefore, there have been stories of cats being offered a job in various places. After the world travel period, some cats got employed in post offices in London, where they were paid one shilling a week. Now imagine a place where you would get to be yourself, have unlimited food, and also as a bonus, get paid for that. What a dream. Of course, even today, cats have it good. No work, sleeping anywhere at any time, always being fed, and getting unlimited love from the owners.

Even though cats are the most popular pet in the world, for some reason there has been an absence of studying their behaviors. And a common misconception is that cats look down on their owners, but the good news is that cats actually love you more than you think. One example of a special bond is that cats can distinguish your voice from others. Studies showed that cats would react more to the prerecorded voice of their owner rather than a stranger's voice. You could see them turning their ears towards the recording, moving around, and dilating their pupils. But when they heard a stranger talking, their interest would diminish.

So, fellow Pandas, it is a great opportunity to remember and pet your cat, maybe give them a treat and spoil them a little. Because they have been with us for a long time and friendships like that are unique and worth appreciating.

I believe this ATM has a fee. Give pets before money.
