11 Cats Who Live Fancier Lives Than You

"Dogs have owners, cats have staff," as the old adage goes—and one look at the lives of the felines in this article, and you will know this to be true.

Cats are a regular viral fixture on the internet, and we have compiled a list of the most pampered kitties who star in videos with hundreds of thousands of views.

Why? Because, although humans may have less than purrrfect lives, these kitties are rightfully living the dream. Jealous yet? You will be.

Cat Enjoying a Bath

Traditionally cats have an aversion to water, but not this little kitten. In footage which was shared to Reddit on December 5 by an account called Immaeatyourpizza, we can see the little pet splashing about in a bath tub and chasing his tail—adorable!

Cat Relaxing in a Home Spa

With the Omicron variant sweeping the globe, we could all do with a little pampering to cure our ailments.

And one cat had the internet in hysterics when he was treated to an at-home spa on account of having a cold.

In the clip, shared to Reddit by user Sunshineandhomicide, the white fluffy feline is in a near "catatonic" state with a warm compress covering his eyes as he is swaddled in a fluffy towel.

Calming music plays softly in the background as the cat, clearly enjoying the pampering, lies still as his little tongue pokes out.

Luxury Cat Pad With Stripper Pole

Thinking of redecorating your bedroom? Well, why not look at these three kitties' home for inspiration.

Cat owner Peggy White has turned her cupboard into a lavish den with fairy lights, plants, a fluffy rug, cat beds, steps leading to various levels and a mirror.

It is also kitted out with a water fountain, a hanging bed in the middle of the room, a disco ball and a stripper stage with a pole—pawfect for any glamorpuss!

Bespoke Furniture for Cats

While some of us can only dream of having bespoke furniture specially made, one cat on TikTok has just that.

In a viral video, shared by Mini_minerva_, we can see various pieces of furniture which were built by her architect father for her hypoallergenic Siberian feline.

These included a heart-shaped cat tower covered in bath mats, a private "litter lounge" and a custom tree climber. What a lucky cat!

Recently a Malaysian businesswoman went viral upon revealing that she had spent RD25,980 ($6176.16) on jewelry for her cat.

The gold necklace, which was in honor of her pet's fourth birthday, was purchased from the Habib Jewel store in Ampang.

The heart-shaped pendent, which is set onto a thick chain, is inscribed with the animal's name, which is ironically "Money."

Cat Enjoys Massage

We could all do with a massage, and it seems that cats are no different. In a viral TikTok video shared by an account called Haahappy, a gray feline is filmed enjoying the benefits of an electronic massage tool.

The pampered pet, who is wearing a tiny red T-shirt, closes its eyes in blissful relaxation as the massager is held to various parts of its head.

At one point, the clip cuts to the animal leaning on top of the tool, with its ears back as it melts into the massage, and we can't help but feel a bit jealous.

Cat With Own TV For Watching Birds and YouTube

During the pandemic we have been spending more and more time in our bedrooms, and this wouldn't be so bad if ours was as nice as this feline on Twitter's.

Shots of the space were shared to the app by CinnamonBear9 back in April, along with the caption: "Here is the bedroom we finished for our cat this weekend. He actually goes in to nap and watch birds on YouTube."

Alongside a mini TV that hangs on the wall, the space also plays host to a functioning light, a mat, a scratching pole, a bucket of toys, a seat with another cat-print pillow, and even yarn balls for the feline to play with.

Cat Who Lives in a Castle

While a house is good enough for us commoners, some kittens on Reddit were photographed living in their own castle.

The regal felines are able to roam about their three-floored property, complete with turrets.

It prompted one social media user to muse: "It's nicer than my apartment."

Cat Eating Sushi

You may think you have had a luxury meal, but have you ever been fed sushi while languishing inside some Louis Vuitton leather? Well, one cat on TikTok was filmed doing just that.

In the video, which was shared to the app by Kate.S.Travel, we can see a ginger cat being fed bits of sushi with chopsticks while relaxing in a designer handbag.

Kittens on a Private Jet

Riding on a private jet is beyond the realms of possibility for most of us, but not these two Bengal kittens.

In a TikTok video shared by F1Savannas, the two spotted cats can be seen clambering about the beige leather of a jet, as well as crawling about the front seat of a Bentley car. Standard.

Cat Eating Lobster

Lobster is the one of the most luxurious foods that the upper class eat, but one cat on TikTok has also been filmed tucking into one too. How the other half live, eh?!
