The majority of pet lovers have a real passion for cats no matter whether they are still kittens or have reached their senior years. It is understandable because these sometimes little balls of fur have some really unique personalities. They are known to be mischievous and some of them are masters at not getting caught. Then there are those that do and we have managed to put a collection of 75 of them here that were caught in the act.
1) Nice Catch
You might be thinking that this cat is mimicking the little guy but there is a method to his madness. This picture tells the story of a cat trying to steal the fish this child caught. The boy seems so proud of himself. He caught a sunfish. Hope the cat doesn’t kill the fish. Or worse still start eating the fish.
2) Cookie Grab
Someone was getting ready to enjoy a nice hot coffee and a chocolate chip cookie. They must have left them on the deck for a moment. Big mistake. The cat has his paws on it(or at least one of them anyway).
Wonder if the person came back before the cat managed to follow through with the steal. Never leave food unattended when you have a cat.
3) Pen Pal
A pen was left on a desk and the owner must have seen the cat trying to grab the pen. This photo captures the cat in the act. Sneaky little guy. What did he think he would do with the pen when he captured it?
This patient pussy is just hanging around waiting to catch one. This kitty has been hanging there for quite some time. He was eventually caught in the act. It seems the skull head in the tank was watching the cat watch the fish.
Surprisingly enough it didn’t scare the cat. Better luck next time.
5) Food Caper
This family of cats were planning to steal the food on the top shelf. 5 cats were involved in total. 3 were on each level of the cupboard and two were on the counter to make the catch.
The cats look like they were simply having a rest in the cupboards. They all look like they are up to no good. Perhaps keeping the cupboards closed would help.
6) Baby Food
7) Potty Cat
Cat gets caught red-handed destroying a roll of toilet paper. No wonder the household has been going through so much toilet paper. Bad kitty. He seems to be enjoying himself. No need to buy cat toys.
8) Pretty Babies
These two were caught in the bathroom. They were sitting on the countertop when they got busted. Maybe they were just looking for a drink. Possibly they were looking in the mirror to see how pretty they were. Close the bathroom door.
These two were caught mating. The dark coloured cat seemed to be annoyed when they were discovered. Well, at least they were smart enough to know to do it on the bed. Maybe they had watched their owners in action a little too often. Kitty see, kitty do.
10) All Mine
Whatever this cat got caught snagging, he’s not about to share it. He was caught sitting up on the kitchen counter with this in his paws. He needs to go to cat nursery school to learn how to share. He must be very spoiled.
11) Pretzel Anyone
This cat got busted dipping into the bowl of munchies. Looks like the kids may have left the bowl on the floor. Perfect reach for the cat to indulge. This kitty doesn’t seem too discouraged that he’s been caught. He’s a cutie, even when he’s in trouble.
12) Paper Thief
A guy was wondering why his paper kept disappearing, Then while driving he discovered a cat in his neighbourhood carrying a paper. He followed it for 3 blocks and the cat didn’t even flinch.
Maybe the cats owners weren’t receiving their paper and cat decided to help them out. How in the world is this guy going to stop the cat from stealing his paper?
13) Balloons Away
This cat got caught in the act of flying through the air to snatch a balloon. He sat on a high landing to plan his attack. Perhaps he didn’t like the smile on the balloons face. But more than likely he was after the bobbing string. Cats love to play with string.
14) New Litter Box
This kitty got caught digging in a planter full of soil. He made quite the mess. When he was caught he had such a scared look on his face. He knew he was in trouble. Maybe his litter box needed cleaning out. Or maybe the planter fell off the counter all by itself. After all it was blocking his food dishes.
15) Duster Buster
This kitty keeps stealing the house duster. The owner is constantly looking for it. This time the cat got caught trying to take it outside. Lucky for the owner it wouldn’t fit through the pet door.
Exactly what is this cat thinking he will accomplish with a feather duster. Does he think it’s part of a bird?
16) Cat Aholic
Every time this cat owner would leave the room her drink seemed to evaporate. She truly thought her roommate was drinking her drink. This was until she caught her cat red-handed drinking her drink. What’s the problem the cat likes to party. Obviously, by the looks of how the cat puuurfectly uses the straw, he’s been doing this for a while.
17) Free Bar
This sweet little kitty was caught in the beer fridge. She was right inside and trying to get the champagne off the shelf. She obviously doesn’t like the taste of beer. she prefers the more expensive taste of champagne.
8) Cap Bandit
The water bottle caps were constantly disappearing. The cat owner couldn’t figure out where they were going. Then one day when she lifted her ottoman, she discovered all the bottle caps underneath. The cat was just sitting like, it wasn’t me! Now the cat owner knows exactly where her water bottle caps are disappearing to. Clever cat.
19) Cooking Cat
This cat owner cant leave the kitchen for 2 seconds. She only added milk to the bowl to make her muffins and then had to run out of the kitchen briefly. When she returned she caught her cat drinking the milk out of the mixing stand bowl.
The poor kitty thought the milk was for him. He couldn’t understand why his owner was so upset. He was only trying to help!
20) Cat In The Bag
This kitty was so surprised when it got busted routing through its owner’s purse. Now she knows where all her hair ties are disappearing to. Lesson learned, she will now keep her purse zipped shut at all times. Poor kitty won’t be able to riffle through her purse anymore. Perhaps he can search the bedroom dresser for hair ties.
21) Danish Delight
While entertaining over the holidays the cat tried to grab these cinnamon danishs. When caught in the act he tries to appear that he was just looking at them. However, the owner knows better. No danish for this kitty. Better luck next time.
22) Dangerous Thumb Tacks
This woman kept finding thumbtacks in her shoes. She couldn’t quite figure out which cat was doing it. Then she finally caught the cat in the act. Keep your office door lady. Always check your shoes before you put them on. Cat obviously doesn’t like it when the owner goes out.
23) Sibling Rivalry
This guy was caught in the act of holding down his little brother. He’s always picking on him. He got scolded and the 2 were separated. Little brother didn’t really seem to mind though. Mom, just let them play!
24) Please No
This cat is backed into a corner and must have been up to no good. The family dog is taking care of the situation. The cat looks really scared when it has been caught. The dog will keep everything under control. No need to worry Mom. However, the cat is looking for help.
25) Muffin Grab
Caught in the act trying to steal this delicious chocolate chip muffin. Cat surreptitiously tries to grab the muffin from behind the computer monitor. Clever try, however, he was not successful. I wonder if this cat was just in its litter box touching not so sanitary substances. I think the muffin needs to go in the garbage.
26) Links In A Tree
This cat stole the sausage right off the plate. These sausages were going on the BBQ. When the person BBQing went to find the sausages, they looked up in the tree.
They spotted the cat in the tree with the link of sausages. Back to the grocery store for more sausage to BBQ. The cat will be very sick if he eats all of those sausages.
27) Caffeine Freak
This cat got busted in the morning drinking its owners iced coffee. He’s drinking right from the straw. Smart kitty. He obviously likes the caffeine fix. It’s better than catnip! Get a new straw please.
28) Peeping Tom Cat
This cat was caught spying on the owner taking a shower. The sink was a great hideout location. You can only see the cat from the eyes up. Maybe the cat was hoping to have a shower too. Or perhaps a bath in the sink.
29) Cupboard Cat
This cat was caught hiding in a kitchen cupboard. He knocked over some spices. He was shocked to see his owner actually found him there. I was just going to make you a meal! Honestly, it wasn’t me that knocked over the spices. I was just trying to get to the recipe books.
30) On The Edge
This bold cat was caught almost stealing a tasty meal. The bread and meat were on the edge of the table. This created the perfect opportunity for the big steal. Fortunately, the cat thief was captured in time. No lunch for this kitty. No treats either for being naughty.
This fur baby was caught red-handed with a hair tie in its paw. No denying this theft. Owner was wondering where all her hair ties were going. Now she knows. Kitty is not about to give it up either. Perhaps she can help put the tie in her owner’s hair.
32) What Can I Find
These two were caught red-handed being up to no good. These teamsters were caught rifling through the kitchen cupboard. Guess the lookout guy wasn’t doing his job. He was too interested to see what was going to fall out of the cupboard. Naughty kitties.
33) Too Cute
This cute little kitten was caught stealing a marshmallow. The owner didn’t have the heart to take it away from her. She thought it was just too cute. It is one of the cutest pictures. However, the kitten requires some training. Kitty school for this one!
34) Double Trouble
These two were caught red-handed destroyed a roll of toilet paper. When they were discovered they appeared to look very innocent. Apparently they didn’t think they were doing anything wrong. Now how did they get that roll off the toilet paper holder?
Do they not know how expensive toilet paper is. Maybe they are trained to use the potty instead of the litter box.
35) Potty Bound
This fur baby was caught trying to drink from the toilet. The owner was concerned because there was a toilet bowl cleaner in it. She has now kept the seat down on the toilet. Leave the bathroom sink faucet dripping for the kitty to drink from.
The sink is a lot safer than the toilet. Better than that, keep the bathroom door closed at all times.
36) Purse Pursuit
This naughty baby was caught digging through the owner’s purse. Perched on the arm of the sofa is the perfect position for the grab. Im just warming my paws, honestly. I wouldn’t steal from you Mommy. But do you have any treats in here?
37) Nap Time
This feline was just trying to take a nap. The owner was less than impressed the cat was in the baby’s bassinet. This could be a problem if the baby was in the bassinet before the cat jumped in. Extensive training is required in this case. Take the cat out of the bassinet and place it in its kitty bed.
This beauty was caught eating the flowers. The cat’s face looks surprised that it was caught. Not only was it eating the flowers, but the cat was also on the table as well. Very cute kitty, but very naughty as well. Please don’t eat the daisies.
39) Not A Toy
Caught red-handed trying to grab a hair tie off the toothbrush holder in the bathroom. The cat didn’t even let go of the hair tie when she was caught trying to steal it. This is not a toy kitty. But really who needs to buy expensive cat toys when you can just toss them a hair tie. Just go to the dollar store and buy a bag full.
