If you can say one thing about cats, it’s that they do whatever the hell they please and they live by their own set of rules.

And sometimes, they even invite themselves into the homes of complete strangers. Maybe they wanted a place to sleep or a bite to eat. Or maybe they just needed a little snuggle session with a human being.

Whatever the case, these cats barged their way into random houses and the owners told people about their stories online.

Let’s check them out!

1. Now a gruesome twosome.

2. Would you like to take a ride?

Isn’t that unusual?

My stroller, not my cat. This is Ralph. Ralph decided he wanted to hitch a ride around the neighborhood.

8. It’s time for you to go.

Oh, Sharon…

This is Sharon. Sharon would sneak in the house on a daily basis and pretend to be asleep when we had to escort her out. Sharon is not our cat, nor do we know if she is actually called Sharon.

9. You’re not allowed to leave.

Being intimidated by a stray.

Literally had to email my boss that I could not come in today. I included this photo as evidence. Everytime I tried to leave, the cat would try to enter the house. This is not my cat.

This is hilarious.

Update on Tuxie, at my house, NOT my cat.She appears to be in great distress on the porch sofa, striking the "roadkill" pose until I turn a fan on to cool her off.The struggle of "not my cat" is real.
