Some people have dogs, other people own cats. And the unknown number of the latter ones are more or less living in delusion. They only think they own cats when in fact, it’s their cats who totally own them. How is that possible? The pictures below speak louder than thousands of words.
Compiled by Bored Panda, we present to you a list of the most spoiled kings and queens of the feline world who shamelessly rule their households and set their own rules. Think of it as the tribute to our endless love for these sneaky furry animals who stole our hearts at some time back in history and never gave it back.
Are you a proud owner of a demanding mouser too? Make sure to hit us in the comments and share your story, as well as check out our previous post with spoiled, more spoiled, and the most spoiled cheeky cats and kittens right here.

“It’s great to pay attention to your cat, but spoiling can be detrimental,” Molly DeVoss, a certified feline training and behavior specialist who runs Cat Behavior Solutions agency, told Bored Panda in an interview via email. Molly says there are two types of spoiling: “indulging their species’ needs and indulging in human spoiling.”
“The difference is feeling responsible for relieving boredom, and providing proper nutrition and outlets for natural behaviors and inherited skills, versus things like dressing them up in clothes and feeding them pate,” the cat behaviorist explained.

Molly also said that “if you 'spoil' your cat by providing everything the feline species needs, you will very likely be preventing any potential future behavior issues.”
“On the other hand, if you 'spoil' your cat with dress-up and foods that are not healthy for them, the cat may eventually let you know how unhappy he really feels about it—and that might be aggression or destruction issues down the road,” she concluded.
Molly recently did a wonderful podcast for any cat owner who’s struggling with a demanding cat (or demanding too much of them) called “Helicopter Cat Parenting.” Find out Molly’s insights on the subject matter right here.

They’re not allowed to be outdoor cats, but this is the next best thing!
For everyone wondering, the reason why our cats aren't allowed outside is because we live in an area with foxes and coyotes, so predators are a real concern. We're also by a semi-busy road, so cars pose a problem, too. We only set up the tent/tunnel system when we're around and can keep an eye on things; the cats are never left out there unattended.
