Cats and social media go hand in hand, paw in paw, and paw in hand. It’s also true that Facebook is one heck of a social media platform with no shortage of fun ways for all of us to pass our time.
These truths intersect for any of us who are obsessed with cats. A lot of us are obsessed with cats.
One group on Facebook you might find pawsitively irresistible once you think about it is the Facebook group called My House, Not My Cat. Cats can be surprisingly independent even to those of us who have a firm grasp on their purrsonality type!
Still, a cat that doesn’t live exclusively indoors or even a cat that sneaks out is not remotely ashamed to make his or herself right at home… in someone else’s home! Plus, with cats, the more outrageous the circumstances, the funnier the incident tends to be.

Oh… Oh my.
3. “My House. Not My Cat. It Only Took 10 Years, But One Of Our Long Term Ferals We Have Cared For Just Crawled Into My Lap. I’ve Never Felt More Honored”
Patience is a virtue.

Images you can hear.

From mew to meow.

The best guardian of the packages.

Possum, the other cat.

25. “So Sorry For Breaking The Rules (And This Will Be My Only Update I Promise)—i Posted A Few Weeks Ago About The Feral Family Of Six That Are Taking Over My House (But Not My Cats).

When They Feel Brave Enough To Do That, I Think That’s When They Officially Become Your Cats”
Sometimes “not my cat” becomes “forever my cat.” It’s even better when there’s more than one.
