Are you or someone you know considering becoming an annoying pet? Maybe out of sheer boredom, or just to shake up your career? If being the absolute worst little furball is on your bucket list, we recommend you follow the example of these deceptively cute animals and build from there.

Here are ten things you can do as a pet to be as annoying as possible.

10. Yowling like a banshee

All work and no work make cat a dull boy.

Cat’s schedule for the day: get out of bed when my alarm goes off, lies down on work computer and/or files to keep me from working. Proceed to yowl like a banshee if I take him off…

7. Squishing your friends

Black cat got the death glare going strong there.

The black cat gets in the wood box, then the ginger one wants it too. On top, of course.

6. Taking cookies

“It’s not for me, it’s for this really needy mouse in the other room.”

5. Ruining your quarantine puzzle

Wait, is that puzzle on the floor? If so this is kinda on you.

The best place for a nap.

4. Ruin all the fruit

This isn’t a mistake, it’s an assertion of dominance. Over oranges.

Why lie down on the cat bed when you can use the fruit basket instead?

3. Scream at other cats

Don’t try to interfere, this is between the two of them.

2. Take newspapers

He’s trying to read so he can be smart like a fox.

House in our neighbourhood kept getting their newspapers stolen. We finally managed to get a close look at the culprits.

1. Betray your best friend

That cat is gonna steal your man if you’re not careful, Courtney.

If it weren’t for the fact that they’re so cute, they would be the worst. But somehow, no matter what, they remain the goodest bois and girls in the whole wide world yes they are yes they are.
