21 Cat Shaming Pics That Prove Our Cats Own Us


Cat owners are capturing feline confessions on camera, and the shaming is purr-fectly a-meow-zing.

Cat puns step aside. There's a new feline fad invading social media feeds. It's called cat shaming, and it's making us late for dinner.

Our feline friends can be perverts and warriors. They are thieves and second-hand gift givers. They are pre-dawn alarm clocks. They are wannabe politicians, gardeners, artists, and scientists. They are the reason we won't be getting the security deposit back.

Cats own their humans. We present to you this truth.

Forewarning: #catshaming is addicting. Be prepared for the consequences when you're late to pick the kid up from school or meeting your friends because you got carried away searching for photos of guilty felines who are #sorrynotsorry.

We have a feeling you can relate to 99 percent of these cat shaming pictures. There seems to be a trend between how curious and destructive cats are and how much we love them.

Got a cat shaming photo to share? Give your guilty feline a social media shout out with the hashtags #catshaming and #WideOpenPets.
