Cats are some of the most unpredictable creatures out there. And maybe that’s why we love them so much! You never quite know what they’re going to do next. One moment, they can be sleeping peacefully, curled up on your lap. The next, they’ll be running around the house like crazy, chasing after their toys and diving beneath your bed.
Our furry feline friends are famous for their agility and balance. They say a cat always lands on its feet, but the following 75 cats go way beyond that! Their crazy climbing skills, awesome acrobatics, and dastardly disguises are almost bordering on ninja levels. Truly, these cats are masters of the ancient art!
1) Hang In There
Ninja training is something that needs to start early, and this little one is already learning the ropes. She hasn’t got the strength or agility of an adult cat just yet, but she’s already showing a lot of potential to develop into a serious ninja with those hanging skills.
2) Always Watching
Spot the cat! (Hint: check out the curtain) This poor, innocent dog is absent-mindedly sitting around, watching TV or waiting for his owner to take him for a walk. He’s completely oblivious to the cheeky feline watching from the shadows.
3) I See You
Cats love boxes. We don’t really know why, it’s just one of those facts of life like the sky being blue and donuts tasting great. This crafty cat has sneaked inside the box but left a little gap to peek out and keep an eye on things.
4) So Sneaky
Part of being an expert ninja is all about sneaking around in the shadows, climbing into tight spaces, and always taking people by surprise. It looks like this kitty is nailing every aspect, but we hope she can still breathe in there!
5) Can You See Me?
This cat is desperate to be a ninja. He’ll stop at nothing, always working hard to hone his skills and become the best he can be. Unfortunately, those bright, blue eyes of his keep giving him away.
6) Catching His Dinner
Cats are master hunters, able to pounce on mice and birds with amazing accuracy and agility, but why waste time and energy hunting live food when you can just grab a fish on a line like this? What a leap!
7) Blending In
One of the most important skills of any ninja is their ability to blend in with the surroundings. This fluffy white cat is playing the part perfectly, hiding beneath the pillow, almost entirely invisible!
Some ninja legends suggest that the greatest ninjas were capable of actual magic, defying the laws of gravity with extraordinary feats like levitation. For this cat, floating in mid-air looks like second nature.
9) Doing His Best
We’re not sure that this cat is going to be winning any prizes for this disguise, but he’s still doing the best job he can. He gets an A+ for effort!
10) Merry Christmas
Many cat owners start to worry when the holidays draw near. Cats can completely wreck your Christmas decorations, climbing all over the tree and knocking things over in their quest to ruin the holiday cheer. This one, however, has decided to dive right into the tree and use it as a super hiding spot.
11) Can You See Him?
At first glance, someone could easily look at this photo and not even notice that there’s a cat right in the center. The cat probably thinks she’s perfectly hidden, but those pesky, pointy ears are giving her away.
12) The Perfect Camouflage
If you’ve ever had a black cat, you’ll know how easy it is for them to suddenly disappear! They can blend into their surroundings so easily, just like this one here as he sits in front of the TV.
13) You’ll Never Find Me
Yes, believe it or not there is a cat in this photo. A very skilled ninja feline can be spotted down near the bottom of the image. Need another hint? Check out the packet of paper towels.
14) With All My Furry Friends
This super sneaky cat had the clever idea of hiding among a bunch of other furry friends. He blends in perfectly with these stuffed animals, but he looks quite a lot grumpier than the rest of them.
15) Ready To Pounce
Don’t ask us how this cat got up there! We have no idea. Maybe he used a crazy ninja grappling hook to get to the top, or maybe he’s capable of flying. Either way, the owners need to check every angle when walking into a room, just in case he’s waiting to pounce on their heads!
16) Perfect Balance
We can’t tell if this cat is either a master ninja or just very clumsy. She seems to be balancing just perfectly on all those hangers, but the look on her face makes it seem like she’s gotten stuck and is going to need some help getting down.
How did you even get in there, little kitty? Let’s hope the owners don’t accidentally start playing pool with the cat inside the table. They’ll never get the balls back if they fall down that pocket.
18) A Trio Of Ninjas
Once again, we can see how hard it can be for cats to completely hide themselves. Even a trio of trained ninjas like these three friends are doing their best to sneakily hide behind the sofa, but their little ears are giving the game away.
19) Ready For A Bath?
This clever cat has chosen the perfect hiding spot. She’s curled up just right to fit the shape of the sink, and her fur matches the surrounding color perfectly too. If only she’d kept her eyes closed, we might never have even noticed her!
20) Bottom Left
Anyone could walk up to these boxes and shelves and not even notice the furry friend sitting down on the bottom left, peeking out into the world. That’s what being a ninja is all about.
21) Defying Gravity
This cat has gone beyond the level of a typical ninja. He’s completely defying the laws of the gravity! Not only has he climed all the way up above the door, but he seems to be hanging upside down to see into the next room.
22) An Unfair Fight
On paper, a big, strong dog like that shouldn’t have any problem taking on a little feline fluffball, but the dog definitely wasn’t prepared for this cat’s crazy ninja kung fu skills.
23) Keep Trying
This is what we call a ‘ninja in training’. This adorable cat is doing her best to learn the art of hiding, but she hasn’t quite mastered the skill just yet. She’ll get there in the end, though. Keep trying, cutie!
24) Room For Improvement
Here’s another ninja cat who is still learning the ancient art. He’s chosen a pretty good hiding spot here, but he doesn’t realize how transparent that material really is. Plus, his little paws are poking out at the bottom.
25) Stealing Snacks
This ninja kitty has found the ultimate hidey hole! Not only are they perfectly hidden from view, they can also reach out and snatch some snacks whenever they like.
26) Ready For Anything
This cat actually seems a little scary! Climbing up to the top of the door is one thing, but sitting there in that crazy pose is really going above and beyond the ninja call of duty.
Spider-Cat, Spider-Cat, does whatever a spider can! This amazingly talented cat must have some super sharp claws to be able to climb up the side of a building like that.
28) Can You See Me?
Yes, we can see you, little one. It’s not a bad hiding spot, but you should be careful hanging out so close to all those shoes! Someone might step on you.
29) Holding On For Dear Life
This cat seems to be practicing pull ups and working on his biceps with this door hanging technique. How’s he going to get down from there? Either way, it’s a great system for dodging the dog.
30) What’s Up?
This sneaky cat is just too cute! Somehow, he found a little hole beneath the kitchen cabinets. When he heard his owner coming, he poked his adorable little head out to see what was going on.
31) The Ultimate Disguise
This cat might actually be the greatest ninja master of all! Either that, or he got super lucky with this disguise and doesn’t even realize how good it is. He’s positioned in just the right spot to have his eyes line up with the lady on the box.
32) They’ll Get Their In The End
These poor disguises wouldn’t quite cut it at the top level of ninja school, but these cats are doing their best! We’re sure they have awesome ninja futures ahead of them.
33) Super Camo
These two cats might want to consider a career in the army with camouflage like that! Their beautiful orange and black patterns blend perfectly with the tiles and carpet.
34) Always The Ears
Once again, a clever cat has been caught out by his little pointy ears, peeking over the top of the bathtub. Duck down a little further, next time!
35) Those Claws!
Check out the claws on this guy! He’s ready for anything, whether it’s clinging to doors or slashing his way out of a fight. Nobody would ever want to get scratched by this black cat.
36) Karate Kid
This cat seems to have been watching the old Karate Kid movies with a pose like that! She’s training hard in the art of ninjutsu.
37) Must Not Be Seen
The ultimate rule of being a ninja is to avoid detection, by any means necessary. When this cat saw a camera coming out, he knew he only had a brief window in which to hide. He did the best he could, but we still see a little of his face peeking out behind the blanket.
38) Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Bee
Here’s another martial artist cat, taking the time to do some kung fu training in the great outdoors on a warm, sunny day. Those little fluffy mice toys don’t stand a chance!
39) The Perfect Hiding Spot
Many cats like to walk about on the kitchen counters, even when they know they’re not supposed to. They often get caught, but any owner would find it hard to spot this sneaky cat, hiding up high among the sunflowers.
40) Not Quite
This fluffy white cat hasn’t quite grasped the concept of being a ninja, but she’s getting there. She’s got a perfect face mask to hide her identity. Now she just needs to get a little better at hiding those bright eyes and all that fluff.
