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!

When they aren't playing with iPads or getting stuck in things, most of the time our feline companions are being jerks to humans. They knock over our stuff, try to kill us when we least expect it and even fight with children. Seriously: what other animal would actually punch a baby?

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!
