Funny Cat Photos -- Scarlett and Beyond

Updated on October 2, 2014

Cats Do the Darndest Things!

Scarlett O' Hairy, my cat, is the inspiration for this article. She is a long-haired super shedder who cracks me up daily.

Her human (me) keeps the camera handy at most times for those cute moments (pet owners, you know what I'm talking about: any time she's within earshot she might just do something cute so it's good to be prepared) like this one.

She was curled upon the couch, head butted against the pillow, the afghan at the ready in case a chill hit her when she began stretching, waking from her slumber.

I took a series of photos because any animal laying on its back, all four paws heavenward is adorable. This is the last in that series. A yawn replete with tongue curl for the record books.

The Problem With Cats

"The problem with cats is that they get the same exact look whether they see a moth or an ax-murderer."

and cats always land on their feet,

what happens if you strap toast

on the back of a cat and drop it?"

Yeah, Like That's Gonna Happen - Things Cats Might Do But Probably Not

Do you think it's possible to potty train a cat? I'm skeptical, but these toilet training kits and books might just prove me wrong.

Cat Toys ~ Beyond the String

Get fancy with cat play. If your cat is bored with the same old string or catnip toy, try one of these newfangled toys. It'll put a spring in their step!

Sometimes cat nip needs to be refreshed so a new toy is a great way for you to say "I love you, man!" to your feline friend.

      Your Scarlett is a beauty! Can't imagine dealing with the cat hair though. I have enough trouble dealing with OC's and he's a short haired cat. Cute photos.

      I think Scarlett was checking to see if that pot was big enough to use as a litter box. :-)

      It's been several years since I had my own cat, but I've always loved their distinct personalities. Cats are cool! Scarlettohairy is doubly cool. :)
