14 Cats Perplexed By Their Own Face

14 Cats Perplexed By Their Own FaceSome mornings I wake up and mosey my way over to the washroom — still half asleep. I go to the washroom, wash my hands and get my toothbrush ready with toothpaste.

Then, I look up and see a face in the mirror. The first thing I think in that moment can go one of two ways:

BI think “hmm, I feel well-rested and I look it too.” or B I think “who. the. heck. is. that. tired. person?!

Typically, it’s more the second reaction than the fist as I stare at myself with bags under my eyes, hair that needs to be washed and a zoned out look that can only happen to parents who have kids who are trying out the ‘you can’t sleep’ torture method.

Now, I know I am no adorable cute kitty, but this shocked reaction is something we seem to have in common. I have no idea if cats know that the kitty staring them in the face is really them, but some of them I am guessing have no idea.

Click through to see 14 cats who seem perplexed by their own face:
