It’s time for me to come out as a cat lover. I cannot hold it in any longer, I love the little furballs, especially my own little furball of joy that cuddles up to me when it’s cold and looks at me longingly when he wants feeding. Which is all the time. Thankfully I’m not alone in my adoration of the feline species.
You may have noticed that cats make up a huge part of the Web, with multiple websites, memes, vlogs, and picture blogs all dedicated to them. Cat owners just cannot resist sharing with the rest of the world what their cats get up to on a daily basis. And cat lovers will lap it up as quickly and as avidly as a cat laps up a saucer of milk.
With that in mind here are 10 of the funniest Tumblr sites dedicated wholly to cute-yet-crazy cats.
If ever the title of a Tumblr summed up its contents to a tee then this is it. Funny & Crazy Cats features, well, funny and crazy cats being, well, funny and crazy. There really isn’t much more to say about the site than that, except to point out the combination of photos, GIFs, and videos that is repeated throughout this list.
The biggest takeaway from extensively viewing the Tumblr titled F**k Yeah Funny Cats is that our feline friends will do anything to entertain themselves. They get bored very easily, and will climb up, into, or on anything they catch a glimpse of if it promises even a few fleeting moments of fun. And that’s just the oldies… kittens are another thing altogether.
If you’re going to label your website ‘Funniest … Ever’ then you need to make damn sure you deliver the goods. Thankfully Funniest Cats Ever just about manages that tough task, pulling together the usual heady mix of hilarious photos, videos, GIFs, and cartoons. Some of the posts contained therein are just weird, so much so that you’ll wonder about the sanity of the owners as much as the cats themselves.
Catladyland [No Longer Available]
We all know a cat lady, don’t we? They’re the old or middle-aged women that resist human companionship in favor of acquiring lots and lots of cats. I’m not sure whether the person behind Catladyland is such a woman, but whether they are or not they sure know how to find an image and add a relevant caption to it in order to make us laugh.
I’ve kept a cat for most of my life, but not once in all that time have I ever thought about sticking its head through a slice of bread. I’m clearly missing out on all the fun, as this Tumblr is all about the joys of breading cats. You literally cut a head-shaped hole in a slice of bread and force your cat to pose in it. Some clearly like the experience more than others.
What do you get when you cross cats with disasters? Catasters, obviously. This Tumblr comprises mostly of cats in rather compromising positions; with Woody from Toy Story hitching a ride, the immediate aftermath of the annual bath, and the day Tiddles got his head stuck in the blind all prime examples. All cats, all disasters, all the time.
Another Tumblr that employs the F word in its title is F**k Yeah Cat .GIFs, and the name gives away the nature of the content. GIFs are short moving images which repeat ad nauseum. Which means you get to see these cats doing whatever crap they’re doing over and over again. Thankfully they’re all funny and/or cute. Exactly as cats should be.
This, as if you hadn’t already guessed by the name of the site, is all about cats wearing sweaters. But wait, don’t cats have their own natural sweaters to fend off the cold? Of course they do, but where is the fun in just letting a cat sit in silence in its own fur? The best thing about this site is probably the little cat head that takes the place of the cursor as you navigate the content.
What a house without a feline pet is missing is a catmosphere. I know, I’m sorry, but it’s kinda true. This Tumblr seeks to add that missing catmosphere to the whole of the Web, with funny images, captioned photos, and cartoons of cats being cute, clever, or even a little crazy. The celebkitties in particular are inspired genius.
I’ve saved the best until last. My Cat Is A Dick. is a Tumblr filled with user-submitted pictures of close encounters with our feline friends. Because sometimes they can be really annoying. Whether it’s a cat that has chosen to vomit all over a MacBook, or a cat trying to bite the head off a pet gerbil, this site has endless examples of cats acting like complete and utter tools.
If you’re a cat lover you have probably spent the duration of the reading time of that article laughing your head off while making cooing noises in appreciation of how cute those kitties are. If you’re not a cat lover then I doubt you’ll have read this far down. You’re probably off taking your stupid dog for walkies or something.
Let us know what you think of these funny cat Tumblrs, or what you think of the whole cat phenomenon on the Web. Do you know of any other cat Tumblrs that deserve a wider audience? After that be sure to check out Non-Stop Nyan Cat, a site guaranteed to make even the most-ardent cat lover want to adopt a canine buddy.
