You’re babysitting someone’s kids, but their cat keeps staring at you. So you call the kids’ parents and ask them what’s up with their catto. They tell you to get the kids and run because they don’t have a cat! While nowhere near as dramatic as my take of a classic short horror story, a surprising number of people have had unknown cats mosey into their homes.
The ‘My House, Not My Cat’ Facebook group is the perfect place for people to share fun and funny photos of unfamiliar felines claiming dominion over their property. The community has grown 30k members since being founded in October 2016. But enough talk—time for some cat pics. That’s why you came here, isn’t it, dear Pandas? Get ready to scroll and remember to upvote your fave images. And be sure to check out our newest interview with the founder of the group, Stevie Holcomb, below.
Need some more photos of cats that totally aren’t yours? Check out our previous article about the wholesome community right over here when you’re done petting all of the cats in this list.
