The Saddest Stock Cat Photos on Shutterstock

Sad kitties on the stock photo site are sad. But why are they sad? We think we have the reasons. We just made them up.

Sometimes when we're looking at stock photos of cats for HOURS ON END, we're struck by the many sad kitties and cats we come across. "Why so sad?" we wonder. "Did someone forget to snuggle your widdle tummy?" we say softly to the screen (though we hope it's not too loud -- or at least not as loud as when we first started working here).

We have such fun, inventing scenarios behind the sadness -- and then we quickly move on, intent on greater things.

This time, we didn't move on. This time, we stuck around.

1. Cat No. 89260003

Reason for sadness: 

Little girl has gone to school ... just like yesterday ... and the day before ... (sigh)  

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

Not a whole lot, frankly. Until the little girl returns from school, this cat will simply be heartbroken. 

2. Kitten No. 99263270

Reason for sadness: 

Just cannot ... catch ... feather (sigh) 

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE!?

Let the kitty catch the feather for once, Mom! Christ. 

3. Cat No. 66035443

Reason for sadness: 

To be honest, this cat is not so much sad as hairless. 

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

Start by offering him a blanket. You'd be amazed at what a simple act of kindness can do. 

4. Cat No. 64219573

Reason for sadness: 

Stared into the maw of the nothingness that is life and saw there reflected back at him -- himself. 

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

Keep the Albert Camus away from the cats.

5. Cat No. 320517

Reason for sadness:

Head ... is ... too heavy (sigh)

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

Hmm. He's going to have to work on his trapezius. His traps. A full regimen, really load it up and blow 'em out. Boom. Let's get in there and pump, my sad kitty.

6. Cat No. 17910127

Reason for sadness:

A problem as old as life himself. The ears.

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

You know, most people think these are adorbs. You should be happy. You saw the hairless?

7. Kitten No. 17389318 

Reason for sadness:

Smothering, all day every day.

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

Don't worry about the cat. The cat is fine. You might throw the lady a Valium. 

8. Kitten No. 7365013

Reason for sadness:

Chicken ... just ... gone? (sigh)

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

More chicken, Einstein!

9. Cat. No. 67569178

Reason for sadness:

It's hard out here for a pimp.

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY BE DONE?

Nothing. He shouldn't be hanging around that alley, anyway.
