15 Funny Instagram Captions To Honor Your Cat With On International Cat Day


With some people, cats can have a bad reputation. Some say that they aren't as cuddly and loving as a dog, that they're too "creepy," that they act too snobby and haughty to be an adoring pet. These people have clearly never owned a cat before — and, in my honest opinion, it's possible they never even pet one. Sure, cats can come off as snotty and unkind, but if you spend any time with them at all, they become sweet, playful, and completely lovable. That's exactly why International Cat Day on Aug. 8 is so important: everyone needs to realize that cats are some of the best animals on this planet. You can start to spread that message with the perfect funny funny International Cat Day Instagram caption that will show everyone how goofy and silly they can be.

Of course, you should spend International Cat Day with your cats, if you own any, because this is a day dedicated to how wonderful they truly are. But you should also spread the love and show everyone just how special your cat is. You can do that with an adorable Instagram photo. Not only will it serve as proof that cats are perfect, but cat photos (and animal photos in general) are typically some of the most-liked photos on social media... which means that your profile will get more attention than usual. Not a bad deal!

Instead of writing something sappy about your cat, try a funny Instagram caption that shows your love and will make your followers giggle. The below caption ideas will get the job done.

No offense to everyone you know, it's just that cats are, like, a lot better than everyone.
