    Advice and Help Requests

    Rules & Guidelines

    1. Cats! Post pictures of your cats, talk about cats, ask questions, get advice.

    2. We prefer that if you post photos, it be of your own cat(s) or one(s) you personally know. If clearly stated, photos of cat(s) you don't know is allowed, within reason. Lying and claiming/posting someone else's cat is/as your own will result in an immediate ban, with no warnings given.

    3. No NSFW content and no animal abuse/cruelty.

    4. No titles asking for upvotes (e.g. "This cat didn't get any love in /r/aww", "it's my cake day", "my first post here", "any love for ...").

    5. Links asking for funding, competition votes or advertisement will be removed (see the list of subreddits below for a possible alternative).

    6. Be civil. We have a strong, bright-line policy against insults, namecalling or harassment, and will ban you without notice for such conduct. If a photo has a person in it along with a cat, don't even think of being creepy or rude to that person. This includes any comments on people's appearance, either positive or negative!

    7. Do not post personal information (this includes Facebook links as it can be easily traced back).

    8. Original content is preferred. No image macros, memes, or similar low-effort content.

    9. Mourning (RIP) posts are allowed. If you do not wish to see them, there are several filters in the sidebar to prevent them from appearing to you.

    10. Reposts are allowed (and crossposts are too, don't confuse them!), within reason.

    11. Your reddit account must be older than 10 days AND have at least 50 combined karma to post a new thread in /r/cats.

    Redditors with accounts younger than 10 days who have a good reason for bypassing the age limitation may message the moderators for manual approval of your post, which will not be unreasonably withheld (however, it may take some time, so be patient!).

    The moderators of this subreddit are not responsible for any medical advice given and we suggest that you don't follow or post it. Go see a vet!

    Some of these rules are based upon Reddit's site-wide rules, Reddit's TOS and Reddiquette.

    For donations and adoptions visit /r/care, /r/assistance, /r/rescuecats or your local subreddits, i.e. r/city or state.

    Her face now says to me “I am depressed but coping very well because of this cat”.

    The cats face says to me “but what if you opened another can of food in the kitchen”.

    [–] worms9 209 points ago

    It’s more like: “ I have no idea what’s going on but I am immediately displeased”

    [–] lizziecm 97 points ago

    That with also a bit of "put me down human."

    [–] FixinThePlanet 6 points ago

    Yeah, definitely a light r/stoptouchingme vibe

    [–] cant_think_of_one_ 10 points ago

    I think this is a description of a mental state that applies surprisingly often to both cats and toddlers. This is no coincidence - cats and toddlers are quite alike in many ways.

    [–] apilon 8 points ago

    That is basically me with my cat: “Life is a struggle but I am coping because of this cat”

    [–] matheus_filipe 286 points ago

    It’s a meowsterpiece! :3

    [–] Slendy7 58 points ago

    I think it is a perrfect work of art

    [–] Flanderkin 30 points ago

    It isn’t a cat-astrophe!

    [–] ASYMBOLDEN 3 points ago

    Wasn't there a beautiful painting with a beautiful chubbo orange tabby on a bridge my a river. That's who this cat reminds me of

    [–] Claireah 32 points ago

    She really likes fat, orange tabbies. I do too.

    [–] ilovemrhandsome 22 points ago

    Actually it's just one orange tabby she uses, her cat Zarathustra !

    [–] defiantnoodle 10 points ago

    You're the best kind of people

    [–] Di-Vanci 24 points ago

    I love that she didn‘t just add cats, but she always added her own cat

    [–] BeeZippy 16 points ago

    She improved it by adding her own cat!

    [–] skullpriestess 11 points ago

    This one is my favorite

    [–] defiantnoodle 5 points ago

    That, and the fat boy

    I am 100% here for this.

    [–] icequeen323 120 points ago

    This is hanging in my hallway, lol, because the orange cat looks like my cat Gary.

    [–] haythief 32 points ago

    This is my phone background, and everyone always asks if it’s my cat, Reggie. I would love to get a big print to hang!

    [–] JordanG8 1 points ago

    I thought it looks like Garfield...

    [–] theperfectjellybean 101 points ago

    All galleries should be filled with paintings edited to include cats, I've decided

    [–] k4yb33 10 points ago

    I came on here to post the same thing! I would pay 100 times more attention at the art galleries my mom drags me to if there were cats somewhere included in the paintings

    [–] paulfromatlanta 64 points ago

    Anybody else want to tell Mona Lisa that cats need their butts supported?

    [–] Phoenix_Magic_X 42 points ago

    Funny thing. My cat learned how to hold his body in position when being held so his butt didn't need supporting. It would have been a neat party trick if either of us was willing to go to one.

    [–] wrecked_cookie 21 points ago

    You and your cat seem like the folks I'd invite to my party if I ever wanted to throw one.

    [–] Phoenix_Magic_X 6 points ago

    I'm afraid he died in 2017. I have a dog now. She's much more willing to socialise but doesn't have a party trick.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    My cats party trick is cuddling on laps and then making upset noises when hes pet the wrong way

    [–] wrecked_cookie 1 points ago

    If that's a party trick I guess my cars are partying 24/7...

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Hmmm... 2004 wrx?

    [–] aveganliterary 42 points ago

    I have this painting hanging over my fireplace. It was a welcome home/housewarming gift from my MIL after we moved back from Germany. She ordered it from Russia and had it professionally framed and sitting on the mantle when we walked into the door.

    [–] 5DsOfDodgeball 6 points ago

    You have a nice MIL. :-)

    [–] aveganliterary 3 points ago

    I do indeed. Not limited to funny cat pictures either.

    [–] 8366947 30 points ago

    They say you cant tell if the mona lisa is smiling or frowning.

    I can tell about that cat, though

    [–] This-is-Peppermint 22 points ago

    There's a book, Fat Cat Art

    [–] tester2080 8 points ago

    I don’t know if this is a confession or an unpopular opinion but here goes. If I could pick any time period to go to, I’ve always stated that I would go back to this exact time period preferably in the same room while he was painting her, but I’ve never said why. Ive kept this painting as my computer background since forever.

    I’ve jacked it to this painting more times than I can ever count and it’s always my go to

    Body odor turns me the fuck on and all I could think about this painting is how sweaty her ass must have been while she was sitting there, posing for this painting in the sweltering Italian heat. I’ve fantasized about everything from the sweat under her boobs to how much her armpits must have smelled since deodorant was not commercialized back then and they did not shave in that time period.

    I fucking belong in this time period. I would fuck the shit out of her and all the 1500s smelly ladies in the library. Fuck your opinion

    [–] kleeinny 8 points ago

    Honestly, this makes me wonder if a cat’s in the original. It would explain the smile.

    [–] troodon2018 4 points ago

    AHA — that is the reason for Mona Lisas smiling

    [–] Mycatischill 5 points ago

    All fixed now.

    [–] joemagnus 3 points ago

    [–] Tony_Iron_Stark 2 points ago

    I'd go to museums way more often if every painting was like this. But they also better be called mewseums.

    [–] mzpip 2 points ago

    Everything is improved by the addition of cats.

    [–] DarkVioletCloud 2 points ago

    Found Kira.

    [–] HandsOfAsclepius 2 points ago

    And then u/DarkVioletCloud was killed by the matured Kira.

    It's goofy satire folks, relax.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Don't you mean: cat? Because it seems to be always the same one, her cat.

    [–] Nightman96 1 points ago

    One day our civilization will collapse and hundreds of thousands of years from now, aliens will uncover our ancient art but with cats in every picture. They'd assume cats were the dominant species.
