Definitive Proof That Cats Are Evil

From Dr. Evil (hello?!) to Harry Potter, one foe remains the same: cats

Despite their adorable pleas to “haz cheezburgers” or the endearing way they “Lolz,” we’ve always secretly known the truth about cats. No matter how perfectly suited they may be for the Internet, or the many fashion statements they may provide us, there’s no denying the fact: Cats are evil.

In case you don’t quite know what we’re talking about, or if you’re just in denial that your feline might be a foe, let us remind you about every villain ever and their fluffy comrades:

Ernst, the prototypical Bond villain, was among the first to make it cool for bad guys to own cats. If only little Oliver knew the precedence he was setting for his fellow felines.

The cat’s name was MAD Cat. MAD CAT. No further questions.

Filch and Mrs. Norris, Harry Potter

Filch wasn't that bad of a guy, but who can say if Mrs. Norris didn't stay with him when he went on to become Walder Frey. #RedWedding

Hang out with evil wizards and eat tiny blue people and that’s all people will remember you for.

Cardinal Richelieu and His 14 Cats, The 3 Musketeers and Real Life

Cardinal Richelieu was the villain in The Three Musketeers and he isn’t really remembered as being that great a guy in real life. One thing both the Musketeers and historians agree on though is his affinity for cats. The real life Richelieu had 14 cats at one point.

So maybe Stinky’s owner isn’t evil in the same sense as others on this list, but Roger Klotz was bright green so we don’t quite trust him.

Dr. Evil and Mr. Bigglesworth, The Austin Powers Series

A cat whose best friend is a guy with a degree from “evil medical school,” can’t be up to any good.

Team Rocket and Meowth, Pokemon

This one’s a pretty clear-cut case against cats considering Meowth was essentially the smartest member of the team and often responsible for creating their evil plots.

In the infamous opening scene of The Godfather we see mafia kingpin Don Corleone playing with an adorable kitten. Francis Ford Coppola once admitted it was this kitten that instructed the Don in all of his dealings. (Note: there is zero evidence to support this claim).

They say that pets often imitate their owners, but this one is ridiculous. Evil.
