30+ Of The Best “My House, Not My Cat” Moments That Have Ever Happened To Humans (Part 1)

Sneaking into your house as its own house is not a very strange topic that we talk about, cat’s instincts are unpredictable. Someone didn’t have any intention to own a cat, now they are reading this article with their unexpected visitors napping on the lap. We have no idea why cats like to intrude on our house, but we have some pros and cons about why we should let your cat inside:

Pros: Cats need to explore the world but you’re living in a life-threatening street or city that might harm them, we should train them with a leash and walk them instead. If you have a big yard or a garden that would be a great point for cats to wander around your house under supervised watching. Your cat might have some infections due to the bad environments, or they might be hit by a car if you’re living in the hustle and bustle place. Build a catio, give them a lot of cat toys, and a stroller may help your cat enjoy staying indoors.

Cons: Cats are curious and rebellious creatures, keeping them inside your house for a long time might cause them stress and anxiety. If the cats living in a narrow space, they would use their instincts to satisfy their needs, and this time, be prepared to be sad, they might destroy everything in your house.

It’s debatable to compare the pros and cons above which also depends on where you live. Decode your cat’s loves and hates so that we can adjust the environment to meet their wants, then we are safe, they are safe, and we’ll be happy after all! While you’re still considering if you want to let your cat inside or outside, these 30+ stories from “My House, Not My Cat” group on Facebook will put a smile on your face immediately!

#1 This Is My Garden. These Were Not My Cats. But They Are Now

Mamala, the tortie, hung around for years bringing various kittens into the yard to show them off and have a quick meal, then scurry away. We could admire them from afar, but could never touch her. Finally she brought these 4 beauties to us and decided to stay in the yard. One cold snowy winter day, she and the kids walked through our slider into our bedroom and two years later she's still with us with two of the babies. All are now spayed and neutered. Two found homes elsewhere. After living rough and being almost continuously pregnant for years she's decided she never wants to go outside again. Never once has she asked to.

#8 My House, Not My Cat

I recently moved to a new house. About a week or so of living here I was coming home from the grocery store so I propped the door open so I could carry in my groceries. As I was heading back outside I noticed a kitty run into my house so I got my last bags and took them to the kitchen quick and went to see where the cat went. I found him like this (the first pic) in my living room. So I gave him some pets and then ended up like this (2nd pic) for the next hour. He’s so sweet. He kept coming over every day to watch tv on my lap and then going to the door to leave when he was ready. He was wearing a collar but it had no tags so I decided to write a little note and attach it to the collar. I asked if he had a home and what his name was. The very next day he returned with a note back saying his name was Finn and his address which was 4 houses down & also a phone number saying to text if I wanted to so I did. We were texting about the cat on and off all day and then we came to realize that we actually knew each other from high school. Which I thought was hilarious. Anyways, I now share custody of Finn and he is just the sweetest boy and I look forward to seeing him every day!

#10 I Hope This Counts

I rented a house for a few nights, this beautiful cottage in the country. When I woke up the first morning I walked into the kitchen, sun slanting in, open up the door to let the morning in, and I thought to myself “the only thing missing is a cat”. 

I turn around and this absolute legend bulldozed around the cottage and then promptly decided to show us who the boss was.

#17 Picture It: Early Morning In Nw Georgia. My Husband Wakes Up To Go To The Bathroom And As He Walks Down The Hallway He Hears A Little “Mew” And He Thinks, “What The Heck?”

Picture it: early morning in NW Georgia. My husband wakes up to go to the bathroom and as he walks down the hallway he hears a little "mew" and he thinks, "what the heck?" And walks into the kitchen only to see a Smudge of something on the floor. Upon closer inspection he finds a kitten and now everyone is awake. We took him to the vet the very next day and learned he is a boy and between 6-8 weeks old. We named him Smudge. He was scared and shook a lot because we aren't a quiet group but now he is living his best life and is as happy as any kitten can be. Before we decided to keep him this was definitely my house not my cat. ETA: This is what we think happened! We think he came in through the attic. The long story is a couple days before he showed up my husband came inside after smoking a cigarette and told me he saw this cat carrying a tiny gray kitten in its mouth and that it jumped onto our roof. Then one morning shortly after this gray kitten shows up in our kitchen so pretty sure it's the same one. We think it came in through the attic, but we are only guessing. We have checked and there is no mama cat to be found and there are no other kittens either. So we decided to keep him. 

#18 This Is Tupac, My Neighbor’s Cat

Tupac is very mean but decided he liked my house better a few months ago. Now I text the owners if he is here too long, they bring him home, and he comes back in a few days. But this time, he’s in my piano

#22 Finn Is My Messenger Kitty With Whom I Wrote The Note On His Collar After He Snuck In My House While I Was Carrying In Groceries & Then Just Kept Coming Back

I got a note back the next day with a phone number!!! ( I thought that was so neat) After speaking to his owner I found out he was jealous of their new kitty and not doing well at home. With permission from his owner he now lives with me! He does go visit his old home from time to time but lives with us now! His owner said he just wants him to be happy and that seems to be with us ( which I do feel bad about but he assures me it’s ok) I just love him sooo much! He even guards our toddler and alerts me when she’s crying & plays with her outside by racing her down the yard and back. He even gets in her way when she goes into spots in the yard where she could fall! He’s just the sweetest boy!

My ex mother in law texts me a picture of her carrying my cat around and said "baby fuzz won't leave me alone, she's making me carry her around the house" I'm thinking what voodoo has this woman put on my cat??? As you can see by this cats face, she's sick of everyone's shit. So I have to investigate. Sure enough, baby fuzz let's me pic her up, love on her, and im in heaven. After a whole day of everyone gushing over how sweet baby fuzz has became and we don't know why, the REAL baby fuzz decides to show up. YALL! WE CARRIED A CAT AROUND ALL DAY THAT WASNT EVEN MINE!!! PIC IN COMMENTS OF THE FUZZ & THE INTRUDER SIDE BY SIDE

#26 Look What My Dog Found In The Backyard Today

I heard him crying for the last couple of days in another neighbors yard, but when my dog heard him in my yard today, my dog claimed him as his own (We live in a town FULL of stray cats). I'm guessing he's about 5-7 weeks old, if that (he only has 4 canine teeth). I gave him a good bath and spent almost 2 hours picking fleas off of him with tweezers, and we gave him some kitten replacement milk. As you can see, he is happy as can be asleep in a blanket now. I'm not sure how to explain this little guy to my boyfriend when he gets back to town tomorrow, but it was his dogs fault.
