Do you have a cat at home? If so, you know very well that they often don't particularly like human hugs or cuddles, unless they are looking for them from you. Yes, our feline friends are just like that, apparently indifferent to human warmth and affection, stoic and statuesque, but at the same time to four-legged friends who know how to be of enormous comfort and company when we need it most. For this reason, and precisely because we know that cats tend to shy away from the effusive emotional outpourings of human owners, we have selected for you the funniest images that immortalize cats with irony and a sense of humor who try in every way to send a resounding NO to cuddles from mom and dad!

The look in this cat's eyes says more than a thousand words: perhaps it has suffered a trauma that we are not aware of?

After seeing these hilarious photographics, one wonders if our feline friends do it on purpose sometimes: when we get close to them they do nothing but dodge us, while if we are having a moment of relaxation when perhaps we want to be alone, there they are always ready sit on our work or demand our attention.

In short, instead of truly understanding the psychology of the cat, we would be better to first enjoy them, accept them for what they are, and always love them, despite everything!
