Cats go wherever they want.
I mean they don’t have to follow the rules of human society and even if they had to, they wouldn’t. They are, after all, little rebels who don’t care about anything. And that is exactly why we love them so much and why so many people tend to give cats a loving home. However, sometimes it is not we who are giving them home but cats adopting us. This may sound weird but there have been many times when cats have just decided to adopt a hooman by showing up at their house every day.
And when a cat is begging to come in through the window, what can you do? Say no? That is impossible. And that is the reasoning of so many people who end up with a surprise cat in their home. That is why we decided to collect some of the funniest scenarios for you to enjoy of my house but not my cat. So just scroll below to take a look for yourself. And be warned as there may be some my cat but not my house instances are hidden in there as well.
#1 When you get a new surprise family.
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.
#2 Loader here decided to get himself a nice home.
#3 When you find another cat in your home.
Maybe she fell behind something??? Then… I realize my cat is asleep on the daybed. ??? I open the front door… and this little thing looks up at me. Is this how you get a new cat? I’m 50 and single… is my cat sending out invitations ???
#4 When a cat hears you let anyone in.
#5 When your neighbour’s cat chooses you.
I feel pretty sad about it, maybe we made her wild but she actually became pretty soft with some patience and care in this house. Oh and she walk around with toys.
#6 When you find your cat looking at you from another house.
#7 The ginger kitty decided to make herself at home.
#8 This is how you get a cat sometimes.
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!
#9 When your own cat brings you a present.
#10 This cat clearly needs some pets.
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.
#11 A cat knows when a fireplace is lit.
#12 The ducks and the cats have found their home.
#13 ‘Can I come in?’
#14 This is a cat, not a lamp.
#15 ‘So I can stay in this home now, right?’
He has a wonky eye, but it doesn’t bother him.
He never left, despite our efforts to find his home. Now he lives inside with us and eats fancy cat food and sleeps in my daughter’s bed…meet Sage!
#16 When not your cat brings along her friends.
So those that have been following me and Hobo Cat… Hobo Cat now has brought a friend along …. who i have named Pork Chop…. Pork Chop is also not my cat… not quite as feral as Hobo Cat. But they eat together…
Only arrive at night Never see them during the day… Pork Chop came late yesterday and brought a possum along which was eating next to Pork Chop… Hobo Cat sometimes arrives with a deer, which I posted pics of.. Some strangeness going on Opossum, raccoons, and Mr Fox now come as well.
#17 When a lovely baby finds its way into your home.
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 of days before he showed up my husband came inside after smoking a cigarette and told me he saw this cat carrying a tiny grey kitten in its mouth and that it jumped onto our roof.
Then one morning shortly after this grey 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 The cat likes you more than his actual owners.
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.
#19 When a cat is tired of walking and decides to hitch a ride.
#20 Pregnant cats need homes.
Stray cats desperately need a home which is understandable since living on the streets can be tough. And not only that but when they get pregnant, how are they supposed to take care of the babies on the streets? That is why many decide to find a safe place to rest in.
#21 ‘You are now mine, hooman.’
Climbed into the car when we pulled up, walked straight across my husband’s lap and cuddled up to me. Suckled on my cardigan while making biscuits on my neck. Such a beautiful kitty .I did not want to let him go!
#22 He just wants to be let in.
#23 When you get a cat sitter for free.
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!
#24 ‘You will not read this book anymore.’
#25 When a clone of your cat shows up.
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 ‘Can I have some treats?’
#27 The cat might be feeling a little jealous.
#28 That box is this cats now.
#29 When your dog brings you a present.
#30 These babies will stay at this house.
We put out a box for her last night, but I was hanging out with my apartment door open today because it felt nice out. Well! Momma came in with something in her mouth and I thought it was a mouse (this happened once before, long story!) and I went to run her back out. But then I realized it was one of her babies!
She and I fought for a few minutes about wether or not she could stay, but she ended up winning. Now there is one stray momma and 3 baby kitties living under my recliner.

#35 ‘This is my sink now, hooman.’
#36 When your cat decides to go to someone else’s house.
#37 Hugo was not their cat but now he is.
#38 Not their cat but she found her way back home.
My husband heard this crash against our cat flap (it was locked since our old cat passed away 6 months prior) and found this poor cat crying to get in, obviously my reaction was to let her in immediately.. Then she wouldn’t leave! Made herself quiet at home, loved my daughter, didn’t mind my old English sheepdog either!
We had her chip scanned which showed she came from Spain, we are in the northwest of England.. We posted to a local rescue group and eventually, someone knew this was her cousin’s cat. She’d moved from Spain 2 days before to our street a few houses down.
The owner had the door open when the cat came out of quarantine and she ran. Poor thing was terrified until we let her in. We were sad when the owner collected her, she fitted right in!
#39 Dogs love not their cats.
#40 Benjamin found a home for himself.
He acted like he owned the place. We found his original owner and she said she “got another cat” and didn’t want him anymore. We always teased that he didn’t live here (even had a tag made stating so).
Although he pissed off the other cats, I absolutely adored this kitty. We named him Benjamin Gato and he spent the rest of his life with us.
