I firmly believe the best way to turn a great day into a purrfect one is to spend some time with criminally cute cats. No offense to all you doggos out there (believe me, I love you all, too), but cats are awesome.

But don't worry if you don't have an adorable cat or two by your side at this very moment. Bored Panda created a list of wholesome pictures with kitties to keep you company. Share the ones you enjoy the most with your friends to brighten up their day, keep scrolling, and remember to upvote your favorite funny cats!

Beautiful kitty.

View more comments

No matter what a cat does - whether it’s sitting in a box or stretching - it remains photogenic. Maybe it's the catnip, I don't know. The point is, they can't take a bad cat photo. Whether they're pooping in the litter box or munching on a mouse they just caught, their expression is spot-on. Some felines seem far too serious, others look cuter than Puss in Boots, while still others make us laugh with their playful antics. It’s no wonder that the Internet is filled to the brim with funny posts showing off the passion for silly cats.

Whether cats are mega chonkers or kitty cats that like to dance dance dance, I think we can agree that we adore them all equally and would gladly bring them back home to live with us.

In the United States, more households have puppers than mousers. However, more cats are kept as pets. Ruff-ly 70 million dogs and 75 million cats live in the US. Meanwhile, global feline population estimates vary wildly because of the millions and millions of feral cats that roam free. They have absolutely no intention of staying still long enough to take part in a survey. Overall, an estimated 220 to 600 million cats live on planet Earth.

The longer you look at their expressions, the deeper the photograph becomes.

A tabby’s life can seem like a never-ending holiday, what with the amount of time they spend napping between meals. Cats truly are notorious sleepy-heads. They snooze 12 to 16 hours every single day. Meanwhile, older cats sleep even more, sometimes for up to 20 hours a day! That’s bound to turn anyone green with envy.

Here’s a fun fact for all you Harry Potter and Crookshanks fans out there: hairballs that cats regurgitate are called trichobezoars. Unfortunately, unlike in the Wizarding World universe, real-life bezoars don’t work as antidotes to poison and will make you ill. Don’t eat them.

Be nice to your cats. They are spending their entire life with you and will love you unconditionally and never betray you. Don't repay them by yelling at them. Treasure them, you'll miss them when they're gone.

Bernadette Robson

I agree. I volunteer at my local shelter and we always recommend that potential adopters not yell or shout at their pets, as they don’t understand why they’re in trouble. And it can make them afraid of their caretaker 😿

Why do people shout at animals for being “naughty”? They have no idea why they are being shouted at and it only makes them afraid.

Generally I have found kitties understand better, and recover more quickly if i hiss at them. * you have to do it right at the same time the behaviour is happening. Two minutes later will just confuse them. We are huge compared to them, and shouting can terrify them. _______________hang in there, all cat servants have to negotiate how to live together.

It’s better to scold, not shout. The same goes for dogs. They’re really sensitive to sound. Sometimes they are very naughty though! When my cats were kittens, they used to wake me up at 5am each day by jumping on me and running up and down me until I got fed up and got up to feed them and play with them!

Yelling and hitting or physically punishing does not work on humans or cats. Read some articles on working with your cats. They may not think the way we do, but they are smart and will understand.
