To be the most brilliant little geniuses on four paws, cats can be a little derpy sometimes.

And what’s one of the silliest moves in the feline collection of strange poses? Standing up on hind legs like a squirrel, and oh my, is it hilarious when they do!

Yep, us too! And for that reason, let’s enjoy this gallery of cats standing up!
