Our pets are sometimes more capable than we give them credit for. In The Secret Life of Pets, out in theaters July 8, we get to see what pets get up to when we leave them alone. But sometimes our pets show us their true capabilities right to our faces. Like these boss cats that are clearly the head of the house. Humans, obey!

This cat is so boss it’s managed to get its human to vacuum its fur while it lays back like royalty, occasional stretching out a leg to give instructions for where to vacuum less. Talk of domesticated, this cat is truly reigning over its human.
2. This Boss Cat That Doesn’t Walk Anywhere
This cat has nailed the art of having its employees do all the leg work. Literally. The “leg work” in this case translates to “all the walking," while boss cat hitches a ride on the back of whatever farm yard animal is going its way.
