Here are some funny cat stories which will keep you entertained and, in some cases, have you laughing out loud!

Cats do the silliest things; my cat Sooty used to love climbing on top of things. She’d walk along the top of shed roofs and slide down the front of the greenhouse. She also loved watching our guinea pigs and would sit on top of their hutch, her head moving backward and forwards as they ran past.

I think Sooty also had a good sense of humor as she knew she wasn’t allowed upstairs but would sit at the bottom of the stairs meowing until she was noticed. She’d then dart up the stairs and be chased to the top, turning around and running back downstairs, almost tripping up the person who was after her.

We’ve collected some funny cat stories from our readers.

Beware of the prey

Our first story is from Eric and is about his cat Ginko, who he adopted from the animal hospital where boxes of kittens were often abandoned. The name Ginko is Japanese and means silver girl. Here’s what Eric has to say about his cat:

Ginko having a snooze

“Ginko used to catch various prey such as mice and bring them inside the house to play with. Once inside, she wouldn’t try very hard to catch them again. So, I would always have to get them out. 

She sometimes brought them to my bed too. Once I woke up with a snake squirming against my butt! Another time, I went to pick up a mouse, and it bit my finger. 

Finally, I realized I could set the cat door only to let her go outside, so she would stay out with any prey she caught. That stopped her bring animals to my bedroom. One winter, when it snowed, Ginko tried very hard to come back inside and managed to crack the cat door. It’s now fixed with some tape.”

Is it an eagle?

“Our neighbor was on top of his roof, and the cat looked out the window at him. Suddenly she fluffed up her tail and put her front paws on the arm of the chair, all the while watching him. I think she thought he was a big black bird on the roof that was likely to swoop down and grab her.”

Cat Joke

Teacher: “If I gave you two cats and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”
Tom: “I’d have seven cats.”
Teacher: “No, listen very carefully… I’m giving you two cats, and another two cats and another two. Now, how many do you have?”
Tom: “I told you. I’d have seven cats.”
Teacher: “Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, another two apples, and another two, how many would you have?”
Tom: “Six apples.”
Teacher: “Good. Now try this again. If I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”
Tom: “Seven!”
Teacher: “Tom, where the heck are you getting seven from?!”
Tom: “Because I’ve already got a cat at home!”
