I’ll admit it: I’m a certified crazy cat lady. I’ve owned cats my entire life and, to a point, I feel closer to them than I do regular people. Cats aren’t like most other animals out there, and anyone who’s owned them can tell you that.

They pack more personality into their fuzzy little bodies than most people you’ll meet. They’re cute and yet, at the same time, hold an air of mystery that most other animals simply don’t have.


In history, they’ve been painted as mystical and magical. During modern times, they are considered to be epic social media fodder. And however you describe cats, whether they are yours or someone else's, there's no doubt that the world is full of hilarious cat jokes.

For me, being a cat person is not just about loving how cute they look on Instagram. As a practicing pagan, I hold cats in very high regard — not only as pets, but as a religious symbol. Cats have, and always will, have a special place in my heart. It’s just that simple.

I know that I’m not alone in my adoration of feline friends. Cats are the most popular pet in the world. Most “cat people” don’t just like cats — they love them. Heck, the fact that there’s so much cat-themed merchandise, cat quotes, and even catgirl anime floating around the net is proof alone.

Being a cat person has been statistically linked to a number of traits, too. They’re known for being more introverted, more caring, and more likely to enjoy sitting at home while reading a book.

That bookishness means that many cat people will enjoy reading some cat puns. Because the best puns are those about our feline friends. You just can't argue with that. My fellow feline lovers, this list of cat puns and cat jokes is for all you cool cats. Can I get a round of ap-paws, please?
