19 Cats Being Jerks (VIDEO)

Cats are ruthlessly independent, incredibly nonchalant and basically don't give a f#@% about anything. Somehow we still love them, but there's no denying it: they're jerks!

For proof, just see the 19 examples of cats being jerks in the slideshow below. Trust us, this is only the tip of the cat jerk iceberg. Send us your unruly cat videos if you think you can top these!
