30+ “My House, Not My Cat” Pics That You Will Love If You’ve Ever Wanted To Find A Strange Cat Show Up In Your Home

Have you ever experienced something similar? I bet you have. You walk into the kitchen, greet your cat on the counter (who responds with a ‘meow’), and begin brewing yourself a steaming mug of hot cocoa. You go away, but then you come to a halt and look back. That wasn’t your cat, was it? (Perhaps you didn’t have a cat at all!) How did it manage to get in? What happened to your personal feline companion?

You will appreciate the My House, Not My Cat Facebook group if you are looking for some positive vibes. It’s a wholesome online community dedicated to people who exchange images of cats who find their way into their homes, visit their yards, and meow in their offices. Please scroll down and upvote your favorite photographs, then comment with your own photos of cats who aren’t yours lounging at your house.

Stephanie Holcomb, who started the club in October 2016, told that she was inspired to start it because she was tired of seeing “My House, Not My Cat” jokes all over the internet. “Cats would just get into people’s houses through doggy doors or open windows, and these folks didn’t even have cats!” They were amusing, so I conducted a little research and discovered that no such group had been formed yet.” The rest of our in-depth conversation with Stephanie can be found below.

The founder of My House, Not My Cat told us that the posts are monitored by three administrators, and she also went into depth about the group's regulations.

“We do have guidelines that they [the posts] have to be group-specific, and some that aren't are declined. Other creatures, for instance, might be amusing, but we want to be precise. It needs to be your house (or yard, or deck, or work) and it can't be your cat, according to our regulations (we call them NMCs, for Not My Cat). We accept ‘My Cat, Not My House' since we've noticed that neighbors occasionally text images of their cats in their homes. It's flipped around, but the premise is the same.”

“Also, the kitties have to be a surprise,” she added. “At the very least, the first post—people frequently provide updates on NMCs. Matthew, The Squatter Kitty, and Felix are some of our favorites.” 

Stephanie revealed that Felix resides in her hometown and pays a visit to a close friend. “She had no idea I was the leader of this organization and had simply started posting images of him on her Facebook page.” 

Random cats appearing and meowing into your home, according to the founder, is considerably more common than most people believe.

#9 It Only Took A Few Months For Amelia Pond To Go From “My House, Not My Cat” To “How’d You Get So Fat?!?”

“We get folks who register and say things like, 'I'm probably not going to write anything because I'm not going to get that lucky,' and then, poof! In their house, there's a peculiar cat.” 

Anyone who agrees to follow the rules is welcome to join the Facebook group. This includes basic sense measures such as being courteous and refraining from sharing viral photographs. 

“People get yeeted if they are rude, complain, or jump all over someone for something. However, the majority of the folks are pleasant, and the group is enjoyable.”
