Paintings Of Cats Destroying Stuff Through The Centuries (Twitter Thread)

Every cat owner in the world knows two things: 1. Cats are the best thing in the world. 2. Cats are jerks

Listen, we can admit it. Cats being jerks and having annoying habits like sleeping on our fresh laundry or constantly trying to eat food off our plates - none of that stops us from loving them to death. And apparently, that's been the case throughout the centuries. 

@Manglewood on twitter who previously provided the internet with one of the most wholesome twitter threads of naval ship cats in tiny hammocks throughout history has done it again, giving the internet one of the funniest cat twitter threads of cats straight-up destroying all of our stuff in painting through the centuries. 

You're doing very impawtent work for the cat world, @Manglewood, stay strong.

    Human - Molly Hodgdon @Manglewood Good news: I compiled a brief overview of cats wrecking our stuff throughout the centuries. First, Two Young Women Wrapped in Yukata After a Bath.

    The most purrfect thing about this painting, of course, is the fact that both of the women are not even attempting to get the cat off the dress. And we really feel that in the depths of our souls. Yes, our cats may be destroying our stuff, but they look so cute doing it, clearly, they're having so much fun, we don't wanna ruin it for them.

    Caught and no regret in its eyes. This painting really does capture not just the reality of cats destroying things but also the cattitude with which they do it. As cat owners, we know for certain that this cat is going to continue being a jerk the second the artist looks away, and we love that.

    Product - Molly Hodgdon @Manglewood ... Replying to @Manglewood I just realized I should've included this pic of my friend's cat trying to steal my knife: Molly Hodgdon @Manglewood Feb 3, 2019 I'm having dinner at my friend's house and her cat keeps trying to steal my knife. Not my food or anything else, just the knife. Show this thread 4:36 AM Jul 6, 2021 Twitter Web App
