40 Cat Photos That You Won't Believe are Real
Some cat owners take so many photos of their favorite kitties that they are guaranteed to get a few gems here and there. While others know their cat so well that they know when to take the perfect photos. Though difficult, you can even train cats to pose for your photos.
Whether picking just the right moment to snap a photo or having a cat friendly enough to do as you ask, these photos represent some awesome cat photos that at first hardly seem authentic, but in fact are totally real. Now, all you need to do take some “unbelievable” photos of your own cat.
1) Shadow Cat
Check out this silhouette of a cat. The light hits it just right to cast a shadow over some googly eyes someone has attached to the wall. And while this cat is a shadow of his former self, at least he has the eyes for it.
2) Clumsy Cat
Oops, watch out you clumsy cat! Not only is it spilling water all over the carpet, it is also getting flowers everywhere. Of course, it will leave it up to its owner to clean up the mess it has made.
3) Deer Cat
What do you get when you cross a cat and a deer? One weird-looking cat. This is best evidenced by this photo of a cat sitting in front of a unique deer-themed throw pillow, the deer’s antlers seem to be growing out of the side of the cat’s head.
4) Cat Face Swap
Whoa, talk about a face swap! This young lady looks so different with her furry face and sharp teeth. It leaves you wondering how the cat came out in the trade. Most likely with a smaller mouth with nicer teeth.
5) Screen Cat
This cat seems like it is screened in. But don’t fret little kitty; you are safe behind your protective mesh. As long as you don’t try and squeeze between the bars and touch your prison bars with your tongue.
6) Cat Beard
What do you get when you mix a man with a cat? A cat-bearded man. It takes skill to get a good camera shot, especially with cats who tend to be so finicky. This particular shot is perfect in its layout, merging cat and man into one.
7) Cat Ear
What an odd coincidence that this cat’s ear matches up so well with the hairline of its human friend. It’s a little uncanny and perfect in its presentation. A little too perfect, but a great photo nonetheless. I wonder what is so interesting, though … the camera maybe?
8) The Pounce
This is what it looks like from below when a cat pounces. At least I hope it pounced and wasn’t tossed into the air by the woman in the photo. I hope the picture taker was okay afterward and came away with little to no scratches. I know I would be mad if I was that cat.
9) Cat Magic
Here is a little cat magic to brighten up your day. Abracadabra, alakazam, are those the magic words to make a kitty float? Or is it something more sinister? I guess it’s a tossup, which is probably the real magic behind this picture.
10) Split Cat
What do you do when you have a cat with two totally different looking ends? Take a picture of course. Though this is probably just a picture of two totally different cats; you never know. It’s a cool picture nonetheless.
11) Drinking Cat
This cat said he needed a drink; I just didn’t know it would be mine. Now I have cat germs. I hope there’s a cure for whatever is ailing him, and probably me now. Oh wait, he’s outside the window. Never mind then.
12) Cat Mustache
This cat looks like the Snidley Whiplash of cats. I wonder if he has a girl cat tied to a railroad track somewhere? Hopefully, she has a Dudley Do-Right to rescue her. If not, then maybe she can rescue herself.
13) Floating Cat
Meet the cat of the future, a fluffy ball of fur who doesn’t even need to touch the ground. This photo was taken at just the right moment as this cat ran across the yard, making it seem to float in space.
14) Funny Cat
How tall can a cat grow? According to this picture, pretty tall. Or is this a cat trying to be a wise guy, standing in a tall box with long legs drawn on its outside? I’m curious to know though if the cat is actually standing on the top of something in that big box.
15) Trampoline Cat
Poor cat probably had no idea what was in store when his owner jumped on the bed. Now, he finds himself flying through the air wondering where he’ll land. At least he can be assured to land on his feet.
16) Tag Along
This poor cat is probably regretting his recent life decisions. Namely tagging along for a ride on his owner’s back. Who knew his owner was a crazy person who likes to jump into the air? I hope they both stick the landing.
17) Cat Socks
What kind of pet owner wears socks with a cat’s face on them? Obviously, someone who loves cats. Too bad this poor kitty has to put up with their owner’s shenanigans, in addition to their stinky feet in their face.
18) Levitating Cat
Don’t freak out; it’s only Kreskin the Amazing Levitating Cat. Watch him do a wondrous stroll through the air. Hopefully, he doesn’t land on someone’s head or somewhere inappropriate. I’m just curious what is up with the man below him.
19) Windshield Climber
This cat’s owner was wondering who was walking on top of his car. Now the culprit has been revealed. I wonder what this cat’s excuse is going to be now that he has been caught red handed. Or should that be red pawed?
20) Cat Aspirations
This cat hopes to one day be just like his idol, the Meow Mix cat. In this photo, he is getting in practice for his big debut. Look at me ma! I’m a star! More like a wannabe cat actor with his head stuck in a bag.
21) Eat It Cat
Cat rivalries are a thing as shown in this photo. That, or this cat is making sure his friend eats all of their dinner. Maybe he is just trying to be helpful, but more than likely he is just being your typical cat.
22) Private Cat
All this cat wants is a little privacy; but the way you look at it, turnaround is fair play. How many times have you been interrupted by your cat while doing your business? How does it feel now kitty?
23) Sitting Pretty
What a pretty cat, sitting all glamorous on the stairs. On second thought, that looks a little strange. As a matter of fact, is that even a normal posture for a cat to assume? Maybe it’s trying to imitate its owner?
24) Big Cat
All cats are predators at heart. Look at this cat trying to strike the same pose as its bigger cousin. So sleek and deadly, tigers are a likely role model for a cat to follow. Unfortunately, somehow it doesn’t look quite as ferocious though.
25) A Game of Cat and Mouse
Cat and mouse, mouse and cat, the chase goes ever on. Check out this photo of this fast cat and even faster mouse. I wonder if this is the real life Tom and Jerry? Look at them go! The struggle is real!
26) Scared Cat 1
Cats are to water what fish are to land. Cats are an animal that clean themselves, so can you blame them for not wanting to take a bath. Hopefully, this owner came out on top in this fight. I have a feeling, though, that they did suffer at least one or two scratches and bites.
27) Cat Batter
Cats messing with mice are just a fact of life. It look like this cat is a real slugger. Hopefully, he didn’t knock the mouse too far afield or it might have gotten away. Maybe he’s just giving the mouse a chance in the hope of making the chase more interesting.
28) Cat-Cat Beard
What happens when you cross a cat with a cat beard? A cat-cat beard? These cats are too sweet as they try to emulate the actions of their owner, who obviously uses them to make cat beards all of the time. It looks like they are well trained.
29) Stinky Cat
What to do with a stinky cat? While this cat might think he smells like roses, obviously the man on the TV thinks otherwise. As a matter of fact, he must smell pretty bad to elicit that kind of response from a persona on the TV screen.
30) Cat Eyes
Cat eyes are so weird looking, with their slits for pupils. This cat has to go and make it weird. I can just hear it saying now, “I put a spell on you, and now your mine!” Luckily, he has no power here.
31) Cat Runner
Ready, set, go! And they’re off … the cat out in front by leaps and bounds. It’s no fair, though, as he seems to have an advantage. He can run around the room at his leisure, while the runners are confined to the TV.
32) Hand Stand
When they said cats always land on their feet, I think they meant all four. This cat seems determined to win the prize for most graceful kitty, though. If not for the spilled bowl of food, I would give her a perfect 10.
33) Cat Heart
These cats must love each other. Just look at the perfect heart they make with their tales. Chances are these cats are siblings or maybe a mom and younger cat. Now, if you could get them to love each other like this all of the time.
34) Rainbow Cat
Is this a cat or a unicorn? Seems that it has a penchant for farting rainbows. Maybe it is a unicorn in disguise, or better yet, half unicorn, half cat. Either way, it’s magical. I guess it could be worse.
35) Slinky Cat
I wonder how this cat got so long. Did it eat a slinky and learn to stretch? Or maybe it’s two cats in the opposite ends of a piece of dryer hose. I like to think it’s the former myself, but go ahead and let your imagination run wild!
36) Scared Cat 2
There’s something about cats and water that do not mix. Either this cat made a bad decision or was thrown by a mean owner. Either way, it’s going to get wet. Hopefully, it knows how to swim and isn’t too far from shore.
37) Standing Cat
Strange as it might seem, cats do have the ability to stand when they want to, especially when trying to see over tall obstacles. This photo shows a perfect instance of this. Unfortunately, it looks like the snow bank is a little too high for it to see over. Poor kitty.
38) Ripped Cat
This cat obviously likes to work out. It looks like it even shops at Abercrombie & Fitch. Don’t be jealous of its six-pack abs, it says, as even you could look like this cat with a little work.
39) Flying Cat
Where is this cat flying off to? Who knows? She could be flying south for the winter, or maybe she’s off to save the day. Though I wonder if she would proclaim herself Overcat, as opposed to Underdog? You know how cats are.
