This Man Posted a Selfie With His Rescue Dog – and People Got Worried
Cats are way more independent than other animals, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like humans. Many people online have posted pictures of kitties that made themselves comfortable at their house. Most users will say that the cat has adopted them. Some people have discovered that a little furry has stolen their bed. Sometimes, they discover not one but two cats that did not belong to them, and it’s hilarious. Let’s take a look!
Instagramer kittynation.ig posted this image and added, “My house...not my cat. Bluey loves to walk into the house like he lives here. Today he slept on the cozy pink chair for hours and didn’t want to leave when it started raining like crazy. Check my story for some cute sleepy pics!” Bluey is so adorable. How could anyone resist?
Instagramer dana_sullivan_designs posted this picture and wrote the caption, “Working away on some paperwork while being judged by this my house, not my cat! #sparecat #myhousenotmycat #judgycat #homestager #homestaging #thepowerofstaging” It might not be their cat, but that’s a pretty cool spot where he can stare and judge.
Instagramer olgaandthechi posted this picture and wrote, “My house, not my cat. Our relationship evolved from avoiding eye contact, through salami and bacon bribes, to munching tuna straight from a plate. #lockdownfriends #cat #snackmonster #myhousenotmycat #fluffy #catsofinstagram #neighbors”
Instagramer sukikabukichan added this image and wrote, “The neighbor's cat seemed to have moved in. #catsofinstagram #naptime #myhousenotmycat.” Anyone with such cozy patio furniture might just have to get used to neighborhood cats taking the occasional nap on them. It’s not hurting anyone, and he looks comfortable.
Instagramer Ashisaandesmama uploaded this picture on her account and wrote, “Just saying hi and welcome to my comfy life in the house that is not my house - love Pickle #myhousenotmycat #homelesskitten #maybehewillstay #dammitpickle #myliferightnow #doiliveintheupsidedown #pickle.”
Instagramer sammiebee12 added this image with the caption: “I have a sleepy visitor this morning! #myhousenotmycat #handsomevisitor #handsome #catsofinstagram #newengland #connecticut #2020 #uncasville #kitty #october.” Well, the cat has to take advantage of the still-warm weather before it gets too cold to nap outside.
Instagramer vb_englishman posted this picture and wrote, “One of the neighbors has joined my book club #myhousenotmycat #chillout #lovelibraries.” Some people say that cats mirror humans. Others like to believe that they can sense when people need some company, even if they don’t know it themselves.
Instagramer atashiyumekui posted this picture and wrote, “A nice little ‘$^@*#!?€&!’ from the part-time cat. I assume it's nothing but nice things from the look on her face. #cats #catstagram #catsofinstagram #myhousenotmycat.” The term “part-time cat” is so appropriate. Sometimes, your neighborhood’s cat is your best pet!
Instagramer notmycat_mittens added this image with the caption: “We were wondering if the #homereno would deter mittens from visiting but nope he is like this #pileofwood seems comfy let me #hangout on it! #myhousenotmycat #notmycat #fluffy #adorable #streching #neighborhoodcat #catlife.” Not even a home renovation can stop this visitor!
Instagramer hana.ellis posted this image and explained, “Hamish holding ‘not-our-cat’ Gracie who decides to interrupt our brekkie on Sat morning. She’s at our place every day! #myhousenotmycat #fluffball #cloudcat #notmycat #Saturday.” How could anyone resist that gorgeous face? In case you’re wondering, that’s a Chartreux cat.
Redditor nocreativenameee posted this image and wrote, “My neighbor’s cat, he wanted to go inside but I already have other cats and they aren't fond of strangers (yes, I did give him some canned food).” Unfortunately, your actual cats might not like visitors from strangers, but you can always be nice to them.
It’s amazing that there were several communities dedicated to this topic like the “notmycat” subreddit. Redditor Splenticular posted this image and wrote, “This is Mitten. She's stopping me from working and she doesn't even live here!” Well, what are going to do? You cannot move from that cozy keyboard. It would be a crime!
Redditor meredithjayohwhyy uploaded this image and added the caption: “My neighbor’s cat has started coming into my house and making himself at home! This is Alucard (Dracula spelled backward).” He is such a cutie! Who would try to kick him out with a face like that? These random visits are precious.
Redditor LadyAethelwyne posted this picture and wrote, “Opened my window earlier and a random cat just walked in lol. Now it's just chilling on my bed, I'll let it out when it stops raining.” We all need shelter when it’s raining. But this is the kind of moment where you think that you have been adopted by the cat.
Redditor IAmHyperduck uploaded this image and wrote, “I acquired a passenger who is not my cat.” This seems like the cutest Uber story ever. But it just seems like someone left their car door open and one cat took shelter. Remember that cats also like to sleep on car engines when it gets cold. So, give it a few bumps in the morning before starting it.
Redditor baddhinky posted this image and wrote, “This cat isn’t mine. But after this nap experience, I definitely adopted my own.” Well, it looks like this online user has acquired a friend for life. Some kitties love sleeping next to humans, and it’s amazing because it means that they trust you.
Redditor dsw1219 posted this image and wrote, “Oscar’s family is out for Thanksgiving so he’s hanging with us this evening. Handsome dude.” Why wouldn’t his family take him along for Thanksgiving? Luckily, Oscar has great neighbors that let him hang out. Maybe, they also gave him some stray pieces of turkey.
Redditor milliethefish666 posted this image and wrote, “My window is open to let my cat Susu in and out. I turn around THIS IS NOT MY CAT.” It looks like Susu found a friend and invited him over. This online user might now be the proud owner of two cats. Two is always better than one when it comes to animals!
Redditor TigerPoppy uploaded this picture and wrote, “My Bike, My Bookshelf, Not My Cat.” Well, maybe that cat was hoping no one would notice him. And everyone would admit that that’s a nice bookshelf. It’s a great place for resting. He’s not bothering anyone, and he’s too cute to kick him out.
Redditor natg49 posted this image and wrote, “Living in my garden. I'm pretty sure this guy moved into my garden a couple of months back. He bolts when I approach so I've made him my new project.” Hopefully, that kitty will learn to trust and has found a forever home. Luckily, this user won’t have any pest problems in their garden.
Instagramer millie_blackcat uploaded this image and wrote, “My house...not my cat...Millie bought a friend home for the evening... #myhousenotmycat #millie #catsoninstagram.” If the cat has already made himself comfortable, it’s just really rude to kick him out. Better let him take a nap, and he’ll leave later…or not.
Instagramer queenmemu posted this picture and added, “Help! Home intruder! #myhousenotmycat #catsofinstagram #neighbourscat #kravmaganotapplicable.” Honestly, that’s the best kind of home intruder you can have. They kill pests and don’t make noise. Although some might steal some food.
Instagramer alexparker66 uploaded this image to their account and wrote, “Good day to you sir, do you have a moment to talk about bickies?” #straycat #feralcatsofinstagram #feralcat #myhousenotmycat.” It’s always great to open the door and see your neighbors. But it’s even better when your visiting neighbor is a cat.
Instagramer glacialglow posted this picture and explained, “Every time I leave the house now I’m told about ‘our lord and savior, Garfield’ and his ‘book of lasagna’.” This is just too adorable. The best part is the cat’s little bowtie, which is why the joke about being a door-to-door Bible salesman really works here.
Instagramer whiskers_and_walkies posted this picture and wrote, “Our neighbor is trying to say he's going to be living with us from now on. Guess I'd better tell his purrants.” Sometimes, cats choose their owners and not the other way around. This cutie wants to be part of this household, and that’s that!
Instagramer strata_house_to_home posted this picture and wrote, “This is our spare room (our room until we get a new bed) it was bright pink to start with. This is our neighbor's cat that seems to be slowly moving in. I took my eyes off her for one second and she took the opportunity to go upstairs! It’s a good job she’s cute!”
Instagramer ha.ley.brown posted this image and wrote, “Gingy has taken a looooong break from visiting and I am really missing her soft company. [image from a few weeks back shows Ginger, a grey cat with orange undertones, standing on the arm of a red couch and nuzzling her face toward my outstretched hand. You can’t really tell in the photo but this picture was snapped during the rainbow hour and tiny reflected rainbows are dancing around the living room.]”
Instagramer notourpet added this image and wrote, “I had company yesterday. #notmycat #catsandbooks.” It looks like cats really find comfort on the laps of humans that are just reading. They know that intellectual humans are more likely to let them take a peaceful nap and maybe give some pets.
Instagramer sparrow_tweets added this image and wrote, “#KualaLumpur day 423 - Waking up to this new #NotMyCat sleeping with her head on my pillow, again. She #meows, stretches, and then settles in the nook of my #arm. Obviously wants a #bellyrub... I slept late at 6 am, then had to wake up early in case the delivery man came. She’s also decided to have upstairs as her domain, refusing to interact with what must appear to be, annoying #kittens!”
Instagramer whiskers_and_walkies added this image to their account with the caption: “My house, not my cat. I feel like he's wanting to know where the food bowls got moved to.” While you can get greeted by cats as you leave your home, it’s harder to be greeted by a strange when you arrive home. But they are magic.
Redditor Firekeeper47 posted this image and wrote the caption: “My blanket, but not my cat.” It seems that this little cutie has decided to lie down on a stranger’s bed. But looking at those eyes! He has stolen more than just a blanket, he has stolen this online user’s heart. Who could resist?
Redditor Athriz posted this image and wrote, “She comes to visit us almost every morning.” This is the kind of cat that can probably tell when a human needs some comfort, even if the human doesn’t know it. That’s why she visits every morning. Some people don’t know that they are lonely until they spend moments like this one.
Redditor Krian78 added this image and wrote, “Yeah, I’m certain no one will notice you behind the curtains...At this point, we accepted the neighborhood cats live at least part-time here.” Sometimes, you just have to understand that you need to share your space with the occasional visitor.
Redditor whippash uploaded this picture on to the subreddit “notmycat” and wrote, “Neighbor’s cat keeps infiltrating my apartment.” It just looks like the neighbor doesn’t get sunshine like this at their apartment. He just needed some Vitamin D to start his day.
Redditor S2560 added this image with the caption: “Neighbor’s cat came around and decided to loaf on the puzzles I was doing.” It looks like this cat doesn’t want the human to continue doing Sudoku. It’s time for some pets, although the online user is not really his owner. But that’s ok, pets can come from anyone.
Redditor Krian78 posted this image and explained, “I went for a smoke break and returned to that... neither is our cat.” Sometimes, you get one cat visitor, but other times, it’s two! It seems that they just really like spending time at that apartment, especially if their friend lives there. Clearly, his cat invited them over.
Redditor bunnyxjam posted this image and wrote, “I’m pretty sure he thinks he lives here now.... and I’m ok with that.” The great part about these visits is that you get to take amazing pictures like this one. He really looks so handsome in front of those orange flowers. Additionally, he likes to pose. That’s really more than enough reason to let him come over whenever.
Redditor belgar12 posted this image and wrote the caption: “Should I let her in? I don't own a cat." You might not own a cat, but it seems that this cat owns you. Clearly, it’s time to invest in some kitty bowls and food because you, online user, have been adopted without our knowledge.
Redditor stringbeansandjello posted this picture and explained, “Happily distracted from election news from definitely not my cat.” It looks like this online user is enjoying his visit to the neighbor’s house. A nice little nap is everything you want, and it means that the cat already trusts you with his life.
Redditor Krian78 posted this picture and wrote, “The neighborhood cat chased a moth into our living room and inside a lamp.” Well, cats are natural hunters, and although that moth doesn’t bother anyone, he needs to catch it. It’s a dirty job, but it needs to be done by someone.
Redditor lovespace posted this image on the special subreddit and wrote, “This is not my cat but he has made himself at home on my sofa!” There’s nothing more wholesome than looking at a sleeping cat, and it’s probably not the first time that it has happened to this user.
Redditor rh6078 posted this image and wrote, “I was cooking sausages with the window open, the neighbor’s cats think they’re entitled to some.” Well, they say that food can attract animals to your home, and these kitties deserve some treats for being cute.
Redditor S2560 posted this image and wrote, “My neighbor’s cat is seriously blurring the lines between "not my cat" and "now my cat".” This online user might just have to get used to sharing his house. Cats are too independent, and they decide where they live.
Redditor detroitish138 posted this picture and added the caption: “Neighborhood boy that has been around for years (has a collar). My cat died two weeks ago and now he comes inside for a visit every day. I think he’s too comfortable to kick out before I go to sleep.”
These pictures are hilarious, and for some people, these visits have become the highlight of their days. It’s like they know that some humans need a little friend. Let us know which image was your favorite. If you liked this article, share it with your friends that love cats. See you next time!
