Cats: Are They Just Big Jerks?


Here at ModernMom, we have a philosophy that the best way to kick off the weekend is with an adorable animal video.

And so, since today is Friday, I found myself wandering around the Internet this morning in search of a super-cute bit of awesomeness.  You know, something like “Mango Loves Milkshake” or that one of baby pandas playing on a slide.

But then things took a dark turn.

Why? Because I kept stumbling across videos of cats being blatantly mean. Knocking things off dressers, tripping toddlers, pushing friends off ladders….

Cats. The playground bullies of the animal world.

Now, this may not be news to everyone. If you’ve ever had a feline roommate, you know about their nearly limitless capacity for disdain and condescension.

Just try wearing a pair of suede booties or showing up with a bag of generic brand Friskies.  With a single glance, your cat will judge your taste in fashion and shame you for neglecting to shell out a few extra bucks for canned Fancy Feast.

“Did you steal those shoes from an elf?” you can practically hear them smirking.

So yeah. Cats are jerks.  Don’t believe me? Check out the evidence below:

They don’t care about your vitamins.

They trip babies….

…. and push their friends down the steps.
