Cat owners have decided to fight about who has the ‘world’s worst cat’ in a hilarious exchange on Twitter. 

The exchange started when Washington Post data reporter Christopher Ingraham revealed how his animal was the ‘World’s Worst Cat’ for consistently waking the family up early. 

‘The World’s Worst Cat has discovered that he can wake the big people up by barging into the toddler’s room at 6 AM and waking *him* up,’ the reporter detailed, sharing an image of his ginger tabby cat.

Ingraham added: ‘He literally throws himself against the door until it flies open. The pounding terrifies the 2 year old, who starts screaming. Then once we’re up the cat goes tear-***ing through the house because he knows if we catch him we’ll toss him outside.’

The reporter was not describing the ideal morning wake-up call, especially if his cat was now waking up his child. 

These tweets inspired followers to then share their own ‘worst cat’ moments from their pets, with one person admitting their feline figured out the same exact trick. 

‘My cat did this for MONTHS at 4 a.m. until I finally figured out it was him and started putting up a baby gate he was too lazy to jump over,’ the commenter wrote. 

Another cat owner decided the tweet was the optimal time to throw their name in the ring for having the ‘world’s worst cat’. They shard multiple images showing just how destructive ‘Horrible Henry’ can be.

‘Sorry, I have the world’s worst cat… …Horrible Henry is so bad he spends each night sleeping in his bachelor pad (aka the car) in the garage,’ the follower detailed. 

‘This is what he got up the other day, he attacked a bag of sunflower seeds then knocked over my cup of coffee.’

Tweets responding to Ingraham’s original tweet included pictures of people’s cats to show their own horrible felines. 

‘My evil cat just stares at me like this until i get up and feed him,’ a commenter wrote while sharing an extra creepy picture of their cat to show everyone the evil stare. 

Another person wrote: ‘Mine jumps on top of me at 5:30 every morning & starts kneading his paws. He was a rescued feral, so at first I thought it was “cute”. I created a loveable monster.’

A common theme among cat owners is that their cats tended to display their horrible behavior in the morning when they are looking for more food or attention. 

But the cats could also find time to show their worst selves in the daylight. 

‘This is Chewy,’ a commenter wrote, sharing a picture of her cat. ‘I shouldn’t have named him that. He has found that my CPAP hose makes a wonderful toy. I have pinholes through it, I’m going to die from lack of air due to that cat.’ 

Then one commenter summed up perfectly what most cat owners were probably feeling after reading the Twitter thread: ‘Every cat is tied for the worst cat.’
