If you’re a cat person this one’s for you! Some people are turned off by felines because they’re not as affectionate as dogs. However, that’s what makes the love of a cat so special. You won’t have to worry about walking your cat because they are potty trained. There’s no need to rush home to “let them out.” They are also super chill furry friends that come in all shapes and sizes. Cats are really low maintenance and costs next to nothing to feed. And if your kid is allergic to pet fur, guess what? They have hairless cats too. Although they can sometimes be jerks, your cat will always remind you how much you mean to them. So if you are looking for some hilarious jokes to tell your kitty (because they’re like the best listeners) you’ve come to the right place.

There are a million and one reasons to love cat jokes and even more to adore cats. This isn’t a puppy bashing page, but there are reasons kitties are preferred. Cats are super independent, cute, and can even use the bathroom on their own. (No early morning poop walks!) They are super low maintenance, and with a kitty around, mice won’t dare enter your home. Cats are all about the chill vibes and may not jump on you as soon as you walk through the door, but they do give awesome cuddles when you need it most.

Being a cat lady in its purr-est form, I cannot resist throwing in a cat pun wherever possible. But you don’t have to be a crazy cat lady to get a kick out of these hilarious cat puns and jokes. Whether you’re an animal lover or not, there’s no resisting a good bad joke… even if it is about cats. Check out this list of cat jokes sure to tickle your sides (or belly).
