Cats love hiding in strange places. They’re hunters by nature, which means they like to be hidden as they observe what’s happening around them. They also sleep up to 16 hours a day, and they like being in hiding spots during their nap-times.
But sometimes, cats simply find a great hiding spot by accident. This video has some examples of their hidden spots.
If you want to see some more cats who mastered the art of camouflage by accident, check out the photos below!
1. Does art imitate life or vice versa?
This cat probably didn’t intend to, but he just happened to choose the perfect hiding place. Or maybe he knew he would blend in perfectly with this orange cat who looks just like him. Either way, it’s enough to make you do a double-take!
2. Watch your step
This beautiful tortoiseshell cat blends in perfectly with the pattern on the carpeted stairs. Maybe its owner is a big fan of autumn, as well as themed cats and carpeting.
3. “To enjoy the couch, you must be the couch”
This little cat is enjoying a nap, but it could accidentally get disturbed if someone sits on it! You might be comfortable, little kitty, but you’re in a dangerous position.
4. Whoever turns the water on will get a surprise
Cats are known for their flexibility and their love of tight spaces, so it’s no surprise that this little kitty thought the bathroom sink was a good place to snooze. But the nap might come to an abrupt end if someone needs to wash their hands.
5. You can’t hide from your crimes
Every cat owner knows that cats love tearing apart toilet paper, but this one took it to the next level. Why just shred toilet paper when you can climb inside the package and make a hiding place?
6. Hey, wait for a second
At first glance, you might be thinking, “That cat isn’t that good at camouflage.” Then you notice there are two cats in this picture! They’ve coordinated their sleeping spots to the color of their fur.
7. You okay, kitty?
At first glance, it’s not entirely clear where the cat’s body ends. It gives the illusion the kitty had an accident and is now flat as a pancake.
8. What happened to the chair?
Something really weird would’ve had to happen to break a chair in this exact pattern. It’s like in old cartoons where characters knock through walls and leave a perfect outline of their body.
9. How to nap undisturbed: expert level
If you spent several fruitless minutes trying to find the cat in this picture, you’re not alone. He found the perfect place for his nap. Take another look at the second log from the top.
10. “I’m going on an adventure!”
This cat almost got into a seriously messy situation when he decided to take a snooze in this garbage can. Due to his dark color, his owner almost bagged him up along with the trash.
11. This cat is in danger
This cat matches the floor so closely that you almost don’t notice him at all. Now he can hide in plain sight and jump out at his owners to his heart’s content!
12. You might want to renovate
When these people adopted this beautiful tortoiseshell cat, they didn’t consider that their bathroom floor also had a tortoiseshell pattern. Since cats like to hide, this might just become her favorite room in the house!
13. The most dangerous step in the world
When your cat matches your stairs this well, you need to be very, very careful where you step. It would stink to fall down a flight of stairs while being scratched to death.
14. Walk very carefully
This cat’s fur has a subtle variation of white and gray that matches the floor pattern so well that it might as well be invisible. You just have to watch out for a flash of whiskers or eyes.
15. This could’ve ended badly
Am I a horrible person for laughing at this? I know it wouldn’t be funny if they had actually set their cat on fire, but it is interesting to see a real-world example of “Curiosity killed the cat.”
