Cats are the lazy person’s pet. Unlike dogs, they require pretty much no attention or walks: all they want to do is eat and sleep. In fact, they’re probably most people’s spirit animal in that regard. But there’s always someone who takes owning a cat too far. These 20 animal lovers are proof that no matter how much you might want to take a photo with your feline companion, they probably don’t want to be pictured with you. And considering how hilariously awkward the results are, who can blame them?
Nobody in this photo looks happy to be there. Not even the cats. Except the dad, that is. Indeed, through the veneer of his glasses and epic ‘tache, you can just about make out a thin smile creeping across his mouth, like some kind of evil, cat-cultivating megalomaniac. In fact, we don’t know who to feel more sorry for.
Just in case you were in any doubt that pet photoshoots are intrinsically awkward… This one particularly isn’t helped by the fact that two of the three cats look well and truly depressed at their current situation.
