18 Of The Most Awkwardly Sitting Cats You’ve Ever Seen

When it comes to relaxing in a seated position, these cats are doing it wrong.

Cats are masters of relaxation. They can sleep anywhere, and without much else to do during the day, they live in a constant state of chill.

Sometimes, though, they take easy livin’ to a whole new level… an extremely awkward level. They think that just because their bods are all bendy and they have nine lives, they can prop themselves in any position sans judgement.

Well, cats, prepare for the ever-judging eyes of the Internet. Because the way you’re seated in these photos is just wrong.

1. This Cat Has Zero Recollection Of How This Happened

3. This Cat Knows How To Ham It Up

4. This Cat Is Equal Parts Confused And Irritated

“I was told there would be treats if I sat like this. Ahem. WHERE ARE THE TREATS.”

6. This Cat Isn’t Sure How To Get Out Of This Position

7. This Cat Doesn’t Give A Rat’s Ass What The Other Cats Think

“No, Furball, it’s not your turn yet. The throne is still MINE.”

8. This Cat Wants To Give You A ‘High Foot’

“No, it’s not a ‘high five’ because I only have four toes. Let’s just do it my way, yes?”

9. This Cat Has A Serious Case Of The Mondays

  • One of my cats, Delilah, weighs about 19 pounds and sits like these are with her tail straight out in fron, her tummy resting on the floor and one of her hind legs straight up in the air. It’s so funny to watch her. When she wants to wash her bottom she wipes it with her paw and licks her paw. Just the way the clean their faces is the way she cleans her bottom. She’s very fastidious and I help her out by giving her bottom baths and she loves it because she gets treats afterward.

  • Well that’s just humanly outrageous, mirroring their humans and doing a better job of it cause I’m sure they can move out of their slouching in a spring without struggling. Just love it!

  • Thanks for the chuckle. I would love to have a cat. Larry is emphatically against it. I hope I outlive him. Is that a bad thing to say? How is your day going? Larry slipped and hurt his back so he is downstairs in his easy chair. I check on him every so often.
