Cat videos are really why the internet was created, as this compilation proves in spades.

This is an amusing collection of cats who get stuck in things. And "things" is wide-ranging in scope: we're talking bags of potato chips, cords to pull blinds, tissue boxes and more.

These poor, helpless and more than slightly confused felines remind us that while cats can be sly, they are sometimes in way over their (covered) heads.

And while that may be bad for them, it's gold for the people with the presence of mind to hit "record" on their phones and capture these moments for everyone else to enjoy.
