26 Cats Who Need Quarantine To End So They Can Have Their Space Back

I'm so sorry, bbs.

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us how their cats have expressed their displeasure with their hoomans being home. Here are some of the best!

Note: Submissions have been edited for length and clarity.

1. This cat, who refused to even face his hooman:

"When I had to move my cat from 'his' spot again, he deliberately turned his back on me to convey his contempt." —valerieb4d16269c4

2. This kitty, who decided to use her owner's laptop as a bed:

"Bean’s taking a stand. I’ve taken over her space, so she’s taking over mine." —samanthajmwood

3. This kitty, who found an...interesting place to perch:

"Ruby has appointed herself as my new line manager – she takes her responsibilities very seriously." —nicolac4e57614c1

4. This kitty, who basically told his owners to "talk to the butt, 'cause the face don't want to hear it":

"This is our boy Ging. He’s now ignoring us completely and this is the view we get of him most days." —cynthial20, Instagram @catspolitics

5. This cat, whose expression really says it all:

"Harry is NOT amused that we have not left the house in weeks." —muffincakes68

6. This cat, who has had enough of you using all her surfaces to puzzle:

"Meatball is using her fat chonky self to block all puzzle solving during quarantine." —amylynnm433301477

7. This sweet kitty, who has been OVERWHELMED with the amount of love his hooman wants to give him:

"Let me start by saying our cat Poe actually adores my daughter, but he is definitely ready for her to go back to school. She holds him all day long. If he’s sleeping she will go boop his nose or pick him up and put him in her dolls' bed. Poe is the MVP of cats!" —caserbee

8. This kitty, who found a...unique place to settle down:

"Leon is finding new and interesting places to hide from me. (Before anyone freaks out, the dryer wasn't hot inside and I removed him after snapping this picture.)"—aprilr4634b473e

9. This kitty, who heard her owner sing one too many times:

"My cat was disgusted by my singing voice." —hollyfarrimond

10. This cat, who could not believe she was stuck with one of her hoomans 24/7 AGAIN:

"My husband and I are both considered essential, but he has recently been able to work from home. Apparently Molly is still mad I was home for three weeks following surgery in February and really doesn’t want humans up in her business. My husband says she stared at him like this for most of his day." —catiedid43

11. This cat, who really didn't care what his hooman was working on:

"I was trying to complete a project, but Rose wasn't having it." —caseylg8

12. This kitty, who was really not happy about his momma's workout class in the sleeping zone:

"This is one of my kitten's reactions to me doing body combat via Zoom in the living room when she was trying to sleep!" —rubberduckiesandcheese

13. This kitty, who was rudely awoken in the middle of a very important nap:

"She was absolutely furious I had the audacity to turn the lamp on while she was napping." —hollyfarrimond

14. This cat, who exudes BSE (Big Salem Energy):

"This is Rarr. I think this picture explains everything perfectly. He’s definitely tired of me not having regular photo shoots for my personal business and using him as my model constantly to fulfill my creative needs. He’s clearly got a temper."

15. This cat, who decided to take advantage of his owner's computer always being on:

"This is Fez choosing to heat his backside on my laptop." —skello2

16. These friends, who decided avoiding eye contact was the best way to get some alone time:

"Sunny & Ozzy won’t even look at us anymore." —hillarys4484b7583

17. This buddy, who was sick of being caught mid-bath:

"I think the lack of privacy is getting to him." —expatinwonderland

18. This disgruntled bb who made her displeasure KNOWN:

"This is Billie doing her daily pout. She’s sick of us." —melayleen88

19. This friend, who decided that if all the couches were taken, he'd just get in the first thing he could find:

"Heisenberg, 6 and 3 quarters. Loves a sink." —kirstynblack92

20. These bbs, who were forced to participate in their bored hooman's schemes:

"This is Cabbage as Fester Addams and Lemmy Meowmister as Spider-Man." —hanksnsghetti

21. This sweet prince, who wasn't so sure he was happy his hooman didn't have to go to school:

"Cougar isn't happy that I'm studying at home. 'Why do you have books on MY bed, interrupting MY sleep schedule when YOU shouldn't be home?' This is him putting his foot (well, all four feet plus his butt) down." —janebel

22. This buddy boy, who thought that if no one could see him, no one would bother him:

"He’s ready for me to leave him the hell alone." —mariethompson

23. This guy, who is handling the quarantine the same way the rest of us are:

"Pancake has been stress eating too!" —daunejaimesd

24. These besties, who have turned to each other for emotional support after getting TIRED of their hoomans:

"My cats are so pissed that we are home ALL THE TIME. They love each other normally, but lately they have been turning to one another more often. My cats usually tolerate my 2-year-old daughter but have now gone into straight up dislike. My short hair cat, Camus, has begun pooping on our daughter’s bed. We have to remember to keep her door closed or else we have more laundry." —sarad4b6a7909b

25. This sweet girl, who decided that just because her owner was in her chair didn't mean she couldn't be there too:

"Mio (short for Hermione!) is struggling sharing my desk chair while I finish my degree...she also insists on joining every Zoom call and blocking my view!" —jadepalmer98

26. And finally this buddy, who just wanted a take a bath in peace:

"Busted! (He obviously licks his privates in peace usually!)" —rubberduckiesandcheese

I'm so sorry, kitties. We promise to go back outside as soon as we can!!
