There are many ways how one can acquire a pet cat - it can be bought from breeders, it can be adopted from a shelter, chosen from a pet store or even be inherited. But there's one more way of getting a cute cat, and it's when the feline chooses you himself.
Now, we all know that cats follow their funny cat-logic of doing things, and more than often that includes picking their masters (or servants) to their liking. Some charm their way into adoption through gentle purring and the disarming power of the Puss in Boots stare. Others... well, trespass and claim your pillow as their new bed.
So, if you'll ever hear loud meowing noises at around 4 in the morning or be woken up from slumber by crashing sounds - congratulations, you now have a cat! Some even more obscure ways of the felines choosing their masters might include crazy cats jumping in a car through an open window, persistently following you on the street pretending to be a lost cat or even declaring your porch as the safest place for them to have their cute kittens.
Bored Panda has compiled a list of cat photos documenting these curious stories, and it's certainly one to make your cat senses tingle.
