Cats can be cute and cuddly, but not when you add water. Maybe wet cats hate being wet because they know their humans will laugh at them. Or maybe they know their humans will take wet cat pictures and spread them over the internet so others can laugh at them too.
Trying to Stay Mad
This kitty has some serious grump-face going on! You can just hear him thinking, "I'd love to stay mad, but your love is ruining my mood!"
Don't Dare Talk
Someone's gone into full blep-mode! Looks like this kitty just joined the 'I Hate Surprise Baths' club with their wet fur and sassy spirit.
Water alert! Initiate meltdown mode! This kitty's channeling their inner wicked witch, but instead of going to Oz, it's bath time!
Working From Home Is Great, They Said
The humans can now work from home, and this is good news, they said. They'll be home all the time to pay attention to us, they said. Well, human, I'm just going to sit here until you get on your Zoom call, so I can express my "appreciation" to your boss.
Watch Out For Those Claws
This little guy looks adorable even when wet. That is until you see those back claws just waiting to attack a vulnerable body part.
Wet Cat Plotting Revenge
If cats could speak English, this one would say, "You think this towel will make up for that bath? You'd better sleep with one eye open tonight, human!"
Cats Don't Like Surprises Either
There are two things that most cats don't like: water and surprises. Make that three things: water, surprises, and bubbles. (Pro tip: Wearing a nice white blouse is likely a bad idea in this situation.)
Bad Fur Day
It's difficult to tell whether this cat is more upset about being wet, or about the bad hairdo he's going to end up with when he dries off.
Why Are You Doing This?
This cat doesn't look angry or sad. He just looks stunned. One minute he's dreaming of chasing mice in green fields, and the next he's soapy, cold, and wet.
Big Ball of Fur
Is it a very large hedgehog? Is it a Gremlin? Is it a giant hairball? Nope, it's a wet, grumpy cat on what appears to be a very humid day.
This cat has clearly been showered before. Note the lack of terror on his face, the resigned posing of his front paws, and the fact that his human is not wearing protective gear.
Do Wet Cats Play Dead?
You might think that this cat actually enjoys being washed. You'd be wrong. He's simply playing dead because he's dramatic like that.
Are You Kitten Me?
Awwww. This kitty looks so sad, you almost want to pick him up and cuddle him. That would be a mistake, though. Kitten teeth are razor sharp.
The Catwalk Shuffle
This guy is so happy to be out of the bath that he's line-dancing the Catwalk Shuffle. Either that, or he's become disoriented by the abundance of pink tile.
How to Annoy a Kitten
You too can annoy a kitten in two simple steps:
- Pick up the kitten.
- Place the kitten in water.
For maximum annoyance, after removing the kitten from the water, arrange him on a fluffy towel and snap a photo.
This photo captures the exact moment that this cat has decided to never trust his humans again. It also precedes his first jump from the sink by about three seconds.
So Long, Couch
"Oh, you think a bath was a good idea? Say goodbye to your vintage retro couch!"
