20 Hilarious Memes And Photos About The Hazards Of Cat Ownership

There is a reason why the pet dog is known as “man’s best friend” – they are caring, sympathetic, emotionally-responsive, loyal creatures.

But being so unpredictable and amazingly self-aware is all a part of their appeal as a pet – if you can put up with their complex and varying personalities. Here are a few memes that perfectly sum up the difficulties of being surrogate parent to a feisty feline.
