People Are Sharing Their ‘I Don’t Own a Cat’ Moments and They’re Hilarious
You don't simply own a cat, as some Reddit users have found out when their fury felines picked their masters (or servants) for themselves. It's definitely an odd way of acquiring a pet, but cat-logic should never be questioned, as you'll find out in the hilarious pictures below...
This is what happens when you feed a stray kitten...
He had no other option but to say yes...
I don't know why they do this...
But can they please do it in my yard.
This guy just wanted a smoke...
He ended up with more than he bargained for when he turned back around.
You should really do something about that...
Try putting more catnip down, that should fill the decking out a bit.
You could find a lot worse in your sink.
He looks overfilled with authority.
Why can't I find things like that?
The only thing in my garden is a plastic deck chair.
I wouldn't exactly word it like that...
The cat now owns you.
It was only a matter of time.
Sorry to break it to you, but I don’t think “he” is a him.
This is indeed how you get a cat.
That’s on you for not knowing he wanted food before he knew he wanted food.
Another cat found in the garden...
Will somebody please send me the name of those seeds!
Little does he know that he too now has a cat.
He looks like he’s been making his way through his fair share of owners.
Don't you just hate it when someone walks in on you breaking in?
I don't think the cat is the problem...
Everyone else sees the crocodile too, right?
They come in all shapes and sizes.
Rectangle just happens to be on-trend.
Someone woke up to this on their balcony...
Yes… this is how you die.
Whatever you do...
Don’t feed them after midnight.
Is there anything better to wake up to?
Orange Juice! So cute.
Something caught this guys eye...
When he turned around, he realized he doesn’t have a cat… He does now.
It looks like you have a bad case of cat.
You might need some sage to cleanse the area. Just a thought.
Is that an actual question?
Yes, you should keep him!
Oldie but a goldie...
This little guy wouldn’t budge, he just had to come along for the ride.
Can't argue with that.
I think I’m in love.
Is it real?
Maybe it’s all just a dream.
I want one.
Prettiest bunch of flowers I ever did see.
You've got to admire his commitment.
That’s his house now.
You found me!
Who’s counting next?
All cats were born equally cute...
But damn that’s cute.
This guy was visiting his girlfriend when he got woken up...
You guessed it… they don’t have a cat.
After working in the office for an hour, this guy thought he'd finally gone mad.
It was just a cat.
This little guy just wanted to steal some hard-earned warmth.
Am I talking about the cat or the guy? You decide.
Well, that's that...
You’re just going to have to move house.
1 cat, 2 cats...
10 cats, there’s not much difference.
Am I right?
Day 4... they still haven't noticed.
Looks like you have a new baby.
These little babies were left on the front porch...
Best. Present. Ever.
Who needs exams anyway...
Especially now you have a cat.
It's too late...
They’ve found you.
What a strange rug you have...
I’ll take 10.
Look at that cute little face.
Well, you do now.
Look at his pink little toe beans!
On the porch this morning, in your heart forever.
She was fighting off the monsters.
Actually, you do.
She’s right behind you.
He just went to take the garbage out...
One mans junk is another man’s treasure.
Studying can wait.
“Petting, is that what you call it? Ghastly.”
His house was completely locked, but when he got up in the middle of the night, this was staring at him.
Looks like you’re going on a quest.
A cat appeared on this guys sofa...
He looks just as shocked.
It's all or nothing.
Looks like you’ve got another cat.
Anyone want anything?
I’m makin’ waffles.
Excuse me, sir...
Do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior? If that hasn’t satisfied your appetite for cat content, keep scrolling to get seriously jealous of some carefree kitties…
Tiger King is huge!
And it is perhaps the most binge-able Netflix show to date.
Netflix's docuseries, Tiger King gives us a majestic insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.
The 7-part series retells the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.
But it isn't just about the tigers and lions...
It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America’s big cat community… and we cannot get enough.
There was a lot of drama over the years...
And Joe Exotic seemed to really have it in for Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her. Yikes.
The show takes things to a whole new level...
And it has already been branded as “bonkers” by viewers but that certainly doesn’t mean it isn’t binge-worthy.
Who knew there was such a large cult of exotic animal hoarders in the US?
And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?
But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life...
And when Joe’s life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.
Joe is an openly gay man...
And after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado in a 3-way ceremony, both of his husbands gradually deteriorated with drug use and mental health problems. Travis tragically took his own life after he made claims that he wasn’t at all gay, and Joe had simply hoodwinked him by fueling his addictions.
And after this marriage tragically fell apart...
Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her husband grew even bigger.
And last year, things took a turn for the worst.
Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison for attempting to have Carole murdered.
He hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path...
But the FBI became involved and they thankfully managed to put a stop to this dangerous plan.
Many viewers believe that Joe belongs in prison after his alarming behavior...
And of course, the internet is now a Tiger King minefield.
The memes have been flooding in...
And even though this is poking fun at real-life events, we cannot get enough during our COVID-19 lockdown. You can read the full list of all the best Tiger King memes at the end…
And we must say...
Tiger King couldn’t have possibly come at a better time.
And it seems there's still more left in the canon...
There have been endless rumors about a supposed extra episode of the show.
Luckily for us...
The rumors are true! Netflix confirmed the news of the hotly-awaited extra episode.
The new episode is titled The Tiger King and I.
According to the streaming service, it will feature interviews with John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe.
The episode will be hosted by Joel McHale.
And is being dubbed an “after show” to the hit series.
Fans are excited by the news, to say the least.
Our prayers truly have been answered.
A new theory has also been doing the rounds.
And many fans of the show genuinely believe what it says about Carole Baskin’s first husband.
They think her husband is...
They think her husband is… high-key conman and Las Vegas lothario Jeff Lowe. One of the men who helped the authorities put Joe Exotic behind bars
Posting to Facebook.
One fan of the show wrote:
Do you believe it?
There’s a few big flaws in the conspiracy theory, such as that their ages don’t add up – but many people still like the idea of it… What do you think?
But all good things must come to an end.
And Tiger King has just, and literally just, been dethroned as Netflix’s most popular show.
It lasted 25 days.
After a mega 25 days on top, Tiger King has now been slain! And there’s a new king in town.
And it's such a weird one.
So what has replaced Tiger King. A new true-crime series? A gritty documentary on prison reform? No.
It's Despicable Me!
Yeah. Honestly. Tiger King has just been wiped off the number one spot by none other than light-hearted 2010 comedy, Despicable Me.
I don't quite know what to say.
But you know what, I might just watch Despicable Me tonight.
The world is currently practicing the art of "social distancing."
And, boy, are we struggling.
These social distancing measures have been imposed to prevent the further spread of the virus.
Because, in case you haven’t heard, we are currently experiencing a pandemic that has changed every aspect of our lives.
The disease has been spreading across the globe at an alarming rate...
Leaving world leaders with little choice but to impose lockdowns upon their countries.
And, by socially distancing and isolating ourselves from others...
We can hopefully delay and prevent catching and spreading the deadly virus. Fallen the curve, as they are all telling us.
Millions are currently self-isolating within their homes...
Thus leaving our streets, which once buzzed with life and energy, completely deserted.
And this could go on for quite some time.
Over the weekend, President Trump announced that the federal guidelines on social distancing have been extended for at least another thirty days in a desperate attempt to regain control.
So, folks, we could be quarantined for a while.
It seems as though people are already losing their minds having been cooped up in the house for days on end, so this news has come to the dismay of many.
Of course, many are struggling with the concept of being away from their families...
Their grandparents, their friends, even their partners. And we’ve all done at least 2 weeks now, some longer so how much more can we really take?
Not much, it seems.
Last weekend, the sun peeked out from behind the clouds.
And those few sun rays were enough to cause havoc.
The weather in New York reached about fifteen degrees, which was enough to drag people outside of their homes and straight into local parks.
And those public areas quickly become a breeding ground for the disease.
Rules about social distancing were quickly thrown away as families and friends headed to central park for a quick sunbathing session, hoping they don’t get infected.
But with hundreds upon hundreds of people gathering in one area...
It wasn’t looking good and there are so many pictures to prove it.
Central Park saw the consequence of selfish humans.
While some claimed they were getting their daily exercise time, others just wanted to get some fresh air with their family. The excuses for such careless behavior were borderline disgusting.
And it's not just New York residents that are bending the rules...
Over in LA, people flocked into the Wharf for fresh seafood over the weekend.
And halfway across the world in the United Kingdom...
Some people took a trip down to nature reserves and local parks for a lovely picnic and when stopped by the authorities, they all claimed they were on their daily exercise hour.
It seems as though big cities are having a hard time pinning down culprits.
But health officials have warned that the current crisis is on the verge of reaching the most dangerous part, so people should put their as well as others’ health before their selfish nature.
There was another case of quarantine breaking some found very odd.
Residents of Magangue in the northern Colombian department of Bolivar all gathered to take a look at a ceiba tree…
Although this wasn't any old tree.
Because for some mysterious reason, it looked as though an image of Jesus Christ had appeared in the trunk.
Take a look for yourself!
Journalist Rafael Rodriguez said, “Dozens of people are gathered here. They are here to see the figure of what they say or believe is the figure of Christ, they have forgotten about [the virus] and are currently here looking at this figure.”
And now California officials have come up with a rather unique way to minimize this rule-breaking ...
According to CBS Los Angeles, officials have dumped 37 tons of sand into San Clemente skate park to prevent people skating.
And it looks set to continue.
Other skate parks in the area are set to follow their lead to prevent skaters from being tempted to leave their homes. And this hasn’t been the only controversial move by authorities during the pandemic. Scroll on for the horrific measures one state has taken against the homeless community …
Amid this ongoing medical crisis, it is the elderly who are by far the most vulnerable.
Alongside those who suffer from existing health conditions, elderly people are at the highest risk of contracting the virus.
Those of an older age tend to have a weaker immune system...
So it is of the utmost importance that they avoid contracting the virus at all costs.
This means that they are to remain indoors as much as possible.
Therefore meaning they have to rely on the help of others to complete menial, everyday tasks.
But, with the current social-distancing regulations in place...
This is proving to be easier said than done.
It's an incredibly isolating time for these people.
Without anyone being able to visit them, many of the elderly have been finding themselves quite literally stuck at home and unable to leave their houses for essentials.
And, while some are lucky enough to have family members to drop off their essentials...
Others are completely alone, with no one to rely on.
But, upon hearing about this heartbreaking reality...
Two teenage boys were inspired to make a difference.
Matthew Casertano and Dhruv Pai aren't your average teenagers.
The two youngsters, both from Maryland, have been out of school for weeks, so they decided to use their free time proactively.
Instead of watching TV and playing videogames like most other boys their age...
Dhruv, sixteen, and Matt, fifteen, decided to lend a helping hand to the elderly citizens in their neighborhood – While fully equipped with hand sanitizer, gloves, and face-masks, of course.
The boys started delivering groceries to the doorsteps of their elderly and vulnerable neighbors.
“We were both helping out our families, delivering groceries to our grandparents, and we thought ‘what about the people who do not have family in the area?'” Matt explained of the origins of their idea to CNN.
But it didn't end there.
The boys were inspired to take their gestures even further… By launching a full-fledged organization.
“‘What if we started some organization to connect teens to the senior citizens and anyone who has a compromised immune system, where going outside is a substantial risk to them?'”
Queue the birth of Teens Helping Seniors.
The boys have single-handedly, and amazingly, designed an official, no-contact delivery service.
But how exactly does this service work?
Senior citizens simply email their grocery list and are then connected with a volunteer teenager living in the local area.
There's absolutely no face-to-face contact...
And the volunteers leave the groceries at the front door and pick up the cash or cheque left for them to cover the costs.
The volunteers follow a strict sanitization routine, too.
Dhruv explained, “The teen will have the proper sanitation equipment, and they will wipe down all the surfaces, following CDC guidelines.”
And, once the groceries have been delivered...
The volunteers are able to “follow up” their service over the phone with their customers, just to make sure they had delivered everything that was ordered.
But it isn't just about the deliveries.
It’s about ending the gruelling loneliness and feels of isolation amongst those quarantining alone. “A lot of these seniors need someone to talk to and the opportunity to connect for a bit,” explained Dhruv. “It inspires me that we might be able to bridge the generational gap.”
News about the teens' service was quick to spread...
As the demand for deliveries grew, so did the volunteers – There are now sixty-five teenagers delivering groceries across several different counties, and over eighty deliveries have now been completed.
And it is still growing.
They have heard from teens from other states who want to start their own service, and they have this advice for them: “So if a teenager wants to start a similar project in their area, they can email us at [email protected] We have a lot of resources to manage volunteers, deliveries, we even have a website that they can use. We will give it all to someone who wants to do this.” Matt explained. “You will be surprised, just like we were, at how many of your peers will join you on something like this.”
What an amazing accomplishment.
These boys are leading an amazing example for teenagers far and wide. For more on selfless gestures during this pandemic, keep scrolling to read about how Tyler Perry surprised elderly shoppers in the best way…
