Cats do not like wearing sweaters. This is something most people know about the world. Does that stop us from cracking up like maniacal children when we see a grouchy kitten wearing a pullover? Not at all. Not even a little bit.
The holidays are a special time when you’re supposed to try a little bit harder to spread cheer, and for every one cat who’s miserable in a hoodie, there are countless humans getting to feel the real spirit of Christmas. For your viewing pleasure, here are 14 photos of cats who really, really, really don’t want to be wearing holiday sweaters.
One character in this photo looks really proud of herself and amused. The other looks like they have no idea how they landed in this situation or how much longer they have to tolerate it.
This is not the facial expression of a happy camper. This is the way I look at my friends when they keep handing me shots when I’m ready to go home.
Either this cat is putting together a sultry modeling portfolio and trying to get a job with Burberry, or they’re really sick of wearing a plaid sweater. One of the two.
My favorite disgruntled cats are the ones that seems to be saying I love you, so I’m going to wait this out and let it slide. Don’t think I’m happy about it, though.
Nothing says “have yourself a merry little Christmas” quite like a cat in a hoodie who’s desperately searching for an escape route.
The one in the back has accepted their fate. The one in the front is like, If my eyes aren’t doing a good enough job conveying how I feel about this situation, look at my tail.
I’m sorry, buddy. I want to feel bad for you, but you look amazing. You look like a Christmas card. You look like a model. You look like an Ivy League graduate.
That face! I feel like I make that same face at least once a day. I know exactly how this cat feels. It doesn’t feel like wearing a cableknit turtleneck, for starters.
THIS IS PURE GOLD. IT’S A CAT. IN A SWEATER. ON A LEASH. IN THE SNOW. WHO’S COMPLETELY CONFUSED. I’M DONE.
I can’t tell if this kitty is sleeping or just accepting defeat, but either way, I get the sense that its internal monologue is along the lines of What I wouldn’t give to be NOT wearing a vest right now.
This cat is either a brooding artist who’s lost in thought about the human condition… or totally done with its striped sweater.
I wish I could explain to you, little buddy, why you have to be wearing a scoop neck sweater right now. I can’t do that, but I CAN sit and stare at your expression and laugh my ass off. I’m sorry.
I know. I KNOW. Crop tops don’t work on my body shape either. We’re just going to have to wait this trend out together.
Is this the face of someone who wants to deliver candy and presents to all the little children of the world, or does this look like the face of someone who wants to hide in a box for the rest of his days? I’m just asking.
