Greetings my pawsome human minions and cat cohorts.

Forrest here, feeling a bit cheeky today after my father’s comedy jam this morning.

Shall I explain?

My dad is a jokester. One of his favorite things to do is tell me corny cat jokes. The minions laugh, but I tend to flick an ear back as it’s the purrfect equivalent of the human eyeroll. Not because he isn’t funny, but just because some of his funnies are downright groan-worthy.

But because you love cats like he does, I figure you’ll enjoy some of him more classic punchlines.

Yep, I care therefore I give you cat jokes.
