25 People Share Photos Of “Working Cats” And They’re Hilarious

To debunk the misconception that cats are lazy animals, people are sharing photos of working cats to show how hardworking these furry felines are. There’s a lot of stereotypes about cats which have given them a bad rap. Felines only care about themselves, they are lazy, cold and unfeeling. These are only few of the negative stereotypes about them which simply aren’t true.

Although typically independent, this doesn’t mean that they only care about themselves. Just like dogs, domesticated felines are also capable of forming companionship with humans. And when they do, they develop a strong bond of friendship with their humans, along with their unconditional love and loyalty. There have been several instances where domestic cats have risked their lives to save their owners. Felines being labeled as lazy is another false impression. Before domestication, wild felines used to work hard on their own to survive. They hunt their own food and they fend off their predators.


Working Cats Who Take Their Jobs Seriously

Since domestication, cats mostly relied on humans for food and protection. They don’t hunt their prey anymore and they don’t have to worry about predators as they are securely confined indoors. This comfortable lifestyle left them with nothing else to do. So, they tend to spend most of their times just lazing around. But then again, this doesn’t mean they are naturally lazy. If given the chance, felines would rather work hard and appease their wild side. If you’re still not convinced, let these cats prove to you that they’re hardworking too.
