‘My House, Not My Cat’ Photos That Will Make You Wish For A 'Stranger Cat' Of Your Own

by Stephanie

Have you ever walked into your kitchen and said 'hello' to the cat sitting on the bench, only to take a second glance and realize that wasn't, in fact, your cat? No?

Well, the members of the 'My House, Not My Cat' Facebook group have. The group is dedicated to sharing photos of 'stranger cats' who turn up in places they don't belong - namely, in strangers' yards, houses, and even offices!

The group's founder, Stephanie Holcomb, says she came up with the idea when she kept seeing 'My House, Not My Cat' memes everywhere. "Cats would just let themselves in people's houses via doggie doors or open windows, and these people didn't have cats! They were hilarious, so I did a little search and found that there wasn't a group made up specifically for that yet," she said.

Scroll down to take a look through 40 of the best pics from the group.
