15 Stories That Prove Humanity Underestimates the Trickery and Wisdom of Cats

15 Stories That Prove Humanity Underestimates the Trickery and Wisdom of Cats

Cats are the most favorite pets among kids and adults everywhere. No wonder there are hundreds of millions of domesticated cats throughout the world. Most likely, every lucky cat owner has their own stories about their favorite pet.

Bright Side gathered several real stories that people shared on social media. They all prove that our life is incredibly connected with these fluffy creatures.

We had a cat 5 years ago. He couldn’t get used to the litter box. My dad was sick and tired of the cat’s behavior and whenever the cat pooped in the wrong place, he brought him to the litter box and showed him the litter. The cat somehow refused to understand what we want from him. One day, after another “act of training”, the confused cat gave us a look full of guilt and misunderstanding and slowly started to eat the cat litter. @ManFromTheMoon

I’m not married and I live alone. My apartment is on the second floor. It was a hot summer day. The air was fresh after a storm. I went to bed, turned off the air conditioner, opened the balcony door and was enjoying the cool air. In the middle of the night, I felt some movement near my pillow. I stretched out my hand and felt something fluffy purring. I turned on the lights and saw a cat lying on the pillow. She had tri-colored fur and green eyes. Well, it’s a little presumptuous to wake her like that. I wasn’t even surprised! @Udjin08

I’m 27 years old and I have a cat. Several months ago, I had strep throat and a high fever. I couldn’t eat at all. After 3 days, my cat started bringing me food: cookies, biscuits, candies — anything he could find on the kitchen table. The most touching moment was when he spit out several pieces of his food near my pillow and sat next to me silently asking, “What are you staring at? Eat!” That moment I realized that I’ve been underestimating him for 3 years. @CallMeRed

Mr. Whiskerson is an ordinary purebred grey cat. But he’s whip-smart! He prefers only “Whiskas” and fish. We usually wash fish before we feed him — just in case. While I’m doing it, the cat sits next to me and stares attentively. He has sinned once: I turned away and the cat snatched the dirty fish and tried to eat it. I realized what happened and took it back. When I walked into the kitchen the next day, I saw the following: the cat was sitting in front of two bowls filled with water and “Whiskas”. He was dropping dry biscuits into the water and ONLY AFTER THAT eating them! @alex1977

We had a cat named Smokey. My mom decided to make hamburgers. She chopped the meat and put the patties in the frying pan (the cat was nearby). She turned away for a few seconds and noticed an empty meat-sized spot in the frying pan. She looked around and saw the cat looking innocently into her eyes. She wouldn’t even get what happened if Smokey hadn’t started getting restless. In 10 seconds he jumped out of the kitchen with a wild shout. There was a piece of meat left on the spot the cat was sitting. Since he didn’t have a chance to sneak it out, he decided to cover it with own butt. @Juliashka2110

Our cat Tom eats very little, so we usually defrost meat for him in small portions. Sometimes, he eats very slowly so the pieces of meat get dry and he doesn’t feel like eating anymore. My mom is very strict about it and never gives him fresh meat until he finishes his last meal. So here’s what Tom decided to do: he puts the last dry piece in his mouth and keeps it there until my mom notices that his bowl is empty. When a new portion of food arrives, he spits out that dry piece and enjoys his dinner. @alexa_2004

I live in my own house and we rarely close the entrance doors. We have a cat who is free to come and go whenever he likes. One day I came into the kitchen and saw my cat with a little kitty sitting next to him. He was just about 2 months old, but their resemblance was striking. Looks like, my cat got his baby back for not paying child support. @Reya

I went out to the balcony to get some fresh air. Down on the playground, I saw a man who was playing with a cat on a swing set. I asked him, “What are you doing?” The man innocently answered, “I went out for a smoke and the lonely cat was here. So, why don’t I make him happy?” @Wizard_Severus

My son came up with a mission of revenge for our cat. When the cat ate, my son stared into his eyes. While he was used the litter box, my son screamed by the toilet door and banged on it. When the cat fell asleep, my son laid down next to him and put his legs on the cat.

I was home alone. I was cleaning up the kid’s room. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed my cat in a doll’s bed. I turned to him and heard him weeping, “I AM HUNGRY.” Man, he scared the heck out of me until I realized that he jumped on a talking doll. Of all 10 phrases the doll can pronounce, he happened to choose the most appropriate one! I went to the kitchen and gave him some food.

We used to think that cats love to knock over Christmas trees. My cat does the opposite. Once she crawled under the tree and saw her own reflection in one of the biggest balls. The cat got really scared, jumped out of the tree, hit the opposite wall, dragged the Christmas lights and knocked over the tree. The tree fell on the TV and it fell down and broke. The cat avoids coming close to the Christmas tree since then. @Olga Jarokhina

I work in a shop. My boss petted a black cat with a little white spot on the bottom. As it turned out, this cat loves trolling people. She loves to sit at the shop’s entrance looking out for superstitious people — those who believe that black cats bring bad luck. When she spots one, she starts pacing back and forth. People aren’t happy about it, but she looks so pleased.

I was home alone at night. When I was falling asleep I head a flush on the toilet. It scared the life out of me. I quickly imagined a robber who urgently had to use the little boys’ room. I summoned up all my courage and went to face the unknown. There was the cat, incredibly pleased with himself. He was pushing a toilet flush button and looking at the water. Looks like this bad boy loves running water! I had to buy a water fountain for him.

***

The bathroom and the restroom are separate in my apartment, but there’s a small hole in the adjacent wall. We got a kitty and he loved to go through the hole into the restroom and splashed right into the toilet! In doing so, he was really afraid of bathing in the bathtub or a sink. But time has passed, he grew up, and couldn’t fit through the hole. Now he goes to the kitchen, turns over his water bowl and splashes in the water on the floor.

I was always sure that no man can break me down. I won’t chase him, beg, or apologize. I would suffocate with pain, but I won’t humiliate myself. This is how I was thinking until I got a cat. One day I found myself sitting by the couch for 2 hours begging him to forgive me for leaving him alone for 2 days. I was asking him to come out and, at least, eat.
