It’s true to say that although we regard our kitties as beautiful, majestic and elegant, they definitely have another side to them.
Every now and then, when they’re caught on camera, they look a bit derpy! To be honest and by all accounts, they’re very good at it.
Luckily for us their humans have their cameras and phones at the ready, creating an endless source of entertainment for us on our feline companion’s favourite medium, the Internet.
There’s a great online community called ‘Animals Being Derps’ where people post pictures of their pets acting like complete idiots – or as I prefer to say: derpy! It’s been running on Reddit since 2013 and has an incredible 3.6 million members.
We’ve created this awesome compilation, with the help of Bored Panda, that highlights when it comes to having their photos taken, our kitties really don’t care what they look like!
So scroll down to see some of the derpiest cats on the planet and don’t forget to let us know in the comments which ones are your favourite.
