We love cats here at Awkward. But even the most ardent cat lover would admit that sometimes they can be real jerks. It’s even backed up by science! (Or at least science-y sounding words.) They swat things off the table just to get your attention. They bring you dead rodents as a way of telling you how terrible you are at hunting. They purposely poop outside their litter boxes just so they can watch you clean it up.
And despite all of that jerkiness, we still love them. Today via Bored Panda, we’ve got 15 photos from cat owners who documented their cats acting like real a-holes. And you know what? They’ll probably make you love cats even more. Cats really do get away with murder.
