Humans Using Cats As Shields From Bugs: Funny Tumblr Posts

Okay, so admit it to yourself... there has been at least once when you saw a bug in your house then asked your cat to go deal with it. Maybe it's because you're scared of bugs and don't understand why some people think bugs are beautiful like we are or maybe it's because you can't be bothered, but you've done it. And you've gotten one of two reactions. Either your cat had the most unexpected burst of energy and flew to catch that bug, or your cat looked at you like you are an idiot. 

Come on though! It's a cat's job to defend us from the gross and eww-y bug! What else have we got you around for? Ugh. Should have expected it, cats are known to be lazy after all. They'd sooner yell at us to take the bug down for them to play with than get it themselves. And we respect that.

    Font - breadbench Follow me whispering to my cat and pointing at a bug in my room: eat it secular-space-witch also me lifting my cat up toward the ceiling so he can reach a bug: get it 221,254 notes

    Even though most times, this gets us absolutely nowhere, surprisingly, there have been a few times when this helped lol. It all depends on the cat. If it wants to go on a hunt, it will, and if it doesn't, it will not. We'll continue being scared of the bug regardless though... please save us.

    Mammal - a-dinosaurs-left-phgkneecap Follow me, instantly forgetting why I lifted up my cat: ITS THE CIRCLE! THE CIRCLE OF LIIIIIFFFFEEE!

    Okay, why do we think the same thing whenever we pick up our cat? The Circle of Life is like- the only true way to react when lifting your cat. If you've never thought of this song before while picking up your cat, a- you're doing it wrong, and b- you're about to start thinking about it now lol.

    Rectangle - erevas Follow There was one time I swatted a crane fly out of the air and then panicked because l couldn't find it, only to turn around and see my 15 year old diabetic cat coming at me at a full sprint, snatching the bug directly out of the air, and eating it.

    Organism - tradcatwalrus Follow I do this and my cats just stare at me. Meanwhile, my dog aggressively goes after any bug within his immediate vicinity. He even ate a stink bug that got in earlier today.

    Font - thelionessandmedusa Follow Lol so once there was a silverfish on the wall of the bathroom at my parents house. So I picked up the cat that I had trained to let me hold him and I was like "get it! Kill it!" And of course he did nothing. So I used one of his paws to knock it off the wall. The cat puts up with so much of my bs.

    Font - girlcaptainamerica Follow One time it was late at night and I was alone downstairs when I saw a spider on the top of the wall, by the ceiling. I could reach it by standing on the couch , by the arm rest. But I was too scared to do it. So I grabbed the laser pointer and pointed it at the spider so my cat jumped onto the arm rest, staring at it and was with me as I killed it.
